Fair 4.0
Truly a no frills hotel!
The only things I liked were the black & white photos of old San Francisco and the ceiling fan/light fixture. They are about to begin remodling so I give 1 star for that. The shower had what appeared to be mold in the baseboard and corners and they don't have an ice maker. They don't even have a closet with a freezer of bags of ice for the guests. So since there is no ice, I guess that is why there are no glasses or cups to use for rinsing your mouth out. I guess a mini fridge was a non-necessity as well. Not that I spent a lot of time in the room but the tv was small and mounted in a top corner of the room and the tv channel menu was very limited. I have passed by this hotel for years. I should have kept passing it. Maybe after the remodel, it will be more ammenable.

Great stay in a budget hotel in SF. Asked for a room to be quiet as I was running the SF marathon and it was so quiet it was great. Bed was comfy and happy with the stay.

If all you want is a clean, comfortable room in the heart of San Francisco with pleasant staff and for a reasonable price, then Hotel Stratford is ideal, but the facilities are very limited. Modernisation is in progress.

Honeymooning at Stratford
We’re on a 3 week honeymoon along the US west coast. San Francisco was our first stop after flying from Ireland to a wedding in NYC. Lovely warm welcome by Mimi on reception, and all staff we encountered were friendly and polite. The room was on the smaller side but was perfect for us (staying 3 nights). It was very clean, the bed was really comfy and the shower was nice and powerful! It’s a great location for accessing public transport or just walking around, right beside Union Square and a cable car stop.
