Perfect little Marina district hotel
Great little hotel in the Marina District. Reasonably priced. Clean and comfortable and friendly staff.

Lovely hotel
Beautiful hotel, very well decorated, bit of noise outside but this is San Francisco. Only negative point - checking in through the night window was a bit impersonal - made me wonder if this was a bad area. Nice walk to the golden gate bridge & hotel is situated on Lombard street which has the famous crooked street not far down the road. Reception staff very helpful for directions and advice. Restaurants around the corner are highly recommended. Would definitely go back again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Would not recommend.
The welcome was non existent. The first thing the guy said was 'do you have a handicapped badge to park there' as we had parked in the disabled bay (yes we do). Had to sign something to say the hotel was not responsible for theft in our room and told there would be a hold on our card till after we leave to make sure we hadn't damaged it or smoked in the room (yes this is the norm but there's ways of wording things). We refused housekeeping the entire time after signing the piece of paper saying they are not responsible for theft as it made me feel very uneasy. Did NOT give a good first impression. Lift is dodgy, will shut hard on you when it feels like and bounces around while in motion. After check in we sat in the room looking for other hotels in the area but as there was a convention on nothing was available. The noise from the road is unreal, we are both very heavy sleepers but we couldn't sleep much (they do offer ear plugs at reception I found from looking online however did not see this until the end of our stay). Very small double beds, we are a couple and ended up sleeping on separate beds for comfort. Cleanliness was fine. Bathroom needs updating, yellowed bath and tiles. Would not return under any circumstances.

Great for a few days
Off the beaten track a bit but a great place to stay for a few days. The bus routes into the city were good so no problem getting around.
