Close to Theatre.
Room small, Bathroom had tiny shelf for toiletries. Fan noise Made reservations for two rooms only had one ready.
At check in my toilet wasn't filling with water therefore it would not flush. I returned 4 hours later and it still didn't work. I had to move to another floor at midnight.
I like the location right off the BART so easy to get to and from the Airport using public transport (as of my stay it costs $20 for round trip BART approx versus $40+ for an Uber each way. The hotel has no dining facilities nor coffee maker in room, but there is a starbucks in the lobby which is great. I have stayed here before and it's fine.
The homeless people hovering around the nearby streets. However that is all over SF, it's not just in this neighborhood. The hotel security is good so I never worried about any trouble.
I expected more for the price and the stars rating
The hotel was dirty there was hair clippings left in the bath room. Room was very small. Toilet wouldn’t flush right.
Love old hotels Could def use some Upgrades and cleanliness in spots
