    Wonderful location, friendly staff, wireless internet, free parking!

    Slow elevators, old and dirty carpeting, confusing (not enough signage), no heat/air thermostat in the room

    Very good

    Great location for activities in North SF. Good public transport connection. Efficient and responsive staff. Free WIFI

    Aged infrastructure: heat in room could not be turned off. Elevator is unreliable. But what do expect for the low price? Overall a good value

    I thought it was a pretty good location close enough to the warf. Was very clean.

    Construction was going on and there was no pool and spa. There was also no air conditioning in the regular rooms but you did have the option to open the door. The elevator was broken. For $268 a night I think it could at least have ac in the room and maybe ice machines/vending on each floor. It's not a bad place of you want a very basic clean room.

    Staff were very helpful. Business centre and lounge areas useful, however, free wi-fi would be appreciated. Small cafe/restaurant adequate 15 to 20 minute walk to main area of Fishermans Warf or short $2 bus ride within one block from the hotel was convenient.

    Van Ness is a very busy road with many commercial vehicles using it early in the morning together with construction work nearby made it uncomfortable for sleeping. Double glazed windows would help block out excessive noise. Window coverings were inadequate allowing street lighting and morning sun to light up the room - could use block out drapes rather than the wooden/plastic louvers to cover windows - this would also assist in noise reduction. Both lifts were out of order during various times of our 3 night stay and when they were working they were very slow moving. Too many steps and corridors made it awkward to move luggage and we had to use both lifts and walk along corridors from one end of the building to the other to get to the fifth floor. Renovation are still continuing with wall plastering, pool and paving to be completed. So not all facilities were available.

    Very good

    Rooms were clean and well presented. The lighting would have one of the best I have had in a hotel for a very long time pity there wasn't a mirror in the main area of the room to make use of it. A small mirror in the bathroom is not enough especially when there are 2 people sharing the room. Wasn't so keen on the meals offered at the restaurant something simple at the end of a big day was all we were looking for.Because of the price would most likely recommend this hotel

    Wonder why they have washing machines but yet don't sell the soap powder, after a big day out who can be bothered to go out again and hunt done soap powder.

    Booked our room for 10 yr wedding anniversary. On website it showed hotel pool and bar all done and it wasn'T. Couldn't even enjoy a drink on our anniversary! It was more of a motel 6 style not hotel and location did not look the safest. The elevators barely worked and the rooms had horrible views and no a/c and you had to pay for internet. Left and got refund after 10 min in our room. The only thing going for it is the lobby and staff. Will never stay there or recommend to our friends. Horrible, horrible experience!

    Exceptional

    The hotel was convenient in every way. It is close to Fisherman's Wharf and having the availability to park our rented car was great. The restaurant in the hotel was good and made it easy to eat when we did not feel like going out.

    You could stand a few pictures on the walls. It is extrememly stark.

    Superb

    Good beds, clean room, convenient to the Fisherman's Wharf area, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

    We were there during a rather warm spell (80 degree days) and the hotel has no air conditioning and no way to get air into the room. We happened to be assigned a handicapped room (we are not handicapped) and the bathroom had no shelf or counter for cosmetics.

    Very good

    It was cute and spacious for a sf hotel room. The restaurant downstairs was convenient.

    Had to take 2 different elevators to get to our room. Booking says that you don't need a reservation for parking. It's true that they don't take parking reservations, but you also can't get a parking space in their garage either. Had to park on the street.

    Fabulous

    Very Clean, new, large room, clean everything.

    Basic set up, could use a seating area in room, more comfort to rooms, lights didn't go out outside in hallway area, curtains wouls be nice, the hotel could be a really great boutique designer hotel if the pool area was updated and fancied up and more furniture in rooms and bathroom needed a shelf. Great hotel, great location, great stay but obvious the hotel is still brand new and in it's infancy
