I chose this place because it was conveniently located near public transportation. Also, the price was reasonable (includes no parking fees applied!). We stayed at the third floor.
Upon arrival the first thing I thought was that the place sure needs renovating - the elevator, bedspread/comforter, curtains, carpet, bed, and TV. The room had this musky/old smell (think Grandma's house). The room also does not have a wall (a/c) unit. However, they did provide a stand alone heater/cooler/fan. The TV was funky but offers a variety of t.v. stations. The soap they provide is small and not really my favorite scent. There is an ironing board in the room but there's no iron. You will have to call the front desk to ask for one. After using, you have to return it to the front desk. I don't know if it's just this room that does this or not. But it was weird that you have to ask for an iron for a room that has an ironing board. By the way, the ironing board is one of those that you have to use on top of a table (small board). Luckily the bathroom was in good working condition and that it was well lit (skylight).
I gave this place a 3-rating because overall the staff was courteous and friendly (and this is what I primarily look at when staying at a hotel/motel). Checkin/checkout was easy. I also like that the parking was free. Where can you find free parking in San Francisco nowadays anyway...so kudos to this! I also like the convenient location.
I will probably stay here again if I'm on a very tight budget.
