Normally this hotel is a three in my book, but it's so difficult to find a good low-cost hotel in SF I gave it an extra bump. The breakfast is meager at best...just hard-boiled eggs and toast. Our room was also extraordinarily loud. If you're room is a 15 or 16 ask for a new room, those face Lombard Street, which is never silent. Normally it wouldn't bother me, but part of this hotel's charm is it's old fashioned look. Unfortunately it features old fashioned windows which don't block much noise. There's also no A/C, so we had to keep the windows open to stay cool and we could barely hear each other speak.
Those to poor points aside the hotel is actually quite nice. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. The hotel is not your fancy brand-name, but is still pleasant in it's styling. A BIG bonus goes to the area. There are plenty of cheap hotels in bad areas of San Francisco and this one is in a fantastic location. We never felt unsafe at night unlike other areas we saw on the airport shuttle where I wouldn't want to walk during the day. Overall I would stay here again...just not in the same room.
