Cheap, Clean and Great Location
Basic but good hotel. Very clean (you could smell the bleach). Great location. Easy to catch the BART from the airport and walk the short distance even with two bags. Close to the cable car, Union Square and shopping. The afternoon receptionists were lovely and helpful however the day work ones were not so pleasant. Would recommend to anyone who would like a central and budget friendly hotel.

Good location, terrible breakfast
Great location right by union square. Brayden and John on reception were very helpful. But the breakfast is woeful. Plastic cutlery and paper plates. Cereal from a dispenser Bad square bread to toast and only grape jelly to add. The best was oranges cut into quarters Room was functional but the basin is in the bedroom in room 209. Good shower and a clean room with good wifi. There is an iron and board but no tea or coffee or fridge. Overall you get what you pay for, so this is a reasonably priced hotel in a great location. Just don't bother with breakfast. Walgreens down the road does it much better

Only stay for the location which is perfect. Rooms tiny, very outdated and expensive for what you get.

Old but excellent value in city centre
I needed a reasonably priced hotel in the city centre for one night before moving to a conference hotel. In a very convenient location and not at all dangerous despite some of the other reviews. The hotel is a little run down and the rooms small but excellent value for one person. Would stay again when paying for myself!
