Hipster vibe, but cheaply executed
On-site restaurant gives you a 15% discount if you're staying at the hotel. Free on-site parking. Close to BART and in walking distance of City Center.
This is such a poor redone of an old motel. I much prefer the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. Needs nicer furnishings. Bad water pressure in the shower. No A/C and opening the windows forces you to listen to all the noise coming from the courtyard. Also, no toiletries were in my room.
Convenient location and good house service
Good value for 5night stay over Christmas. Wish I had brought swim suit to swim in the warmed up beach. The light breakfast is perfect to start the day of errand. Nice parking and safety garanteed. Nice house staffs!
It can be a little bit noisy at night due to the bus station nearby and sometimes the bars inside the hotel.
Terrible location, nice people
Walking from Bart to hotel the streets were littered with crack heads and heroine users. Dozens were using right in front of us and some were passed out with needles in their arm. One was passed out in front of the lobby enterance. Also, hotel bar and restaurant closed on Sunday and Monday.
Small hotel in a bad neighborhood
Hotel has a nice out fashioned look to it. It was well maintained and clean. The hotel provided a very simple complimentary breakfast.
The hotel is located in a bad neighborhood so we didn't really feel safe walking outside it. The price was too high given the quality of rooms and location.
THIS is THE place to stay for fun!
The set up of the hotel was great. There is a heated pool on the middle, with swimming up until midnight. You can still swim even when it very cold outside. All the room doors face each other, which makes for a fun, friendly atmosphere. The eatery on site is AMAZING! I'm not kidding when I say this, it was probably one of the best places I've eaten. It's filled with old record albums and has a cool, sexy vibe. My husband was playing in a show/concert that night so we were all able to walk to the Regency Ballroom...it's very close. To have free parking right outside so you have access to your car is almost unheard of and very convenient. This is the place for fun, and they do quiet everything down after midnight. Don't go here for peace and relaxation though. It is not for that. It's for fun swimming, good accommodations, location, eating and enjoying life. The staff was amazing and we really appreciated them being so nice and welcoming. They seemed genuinely happy to see us..for real! For a fun night out in the city this is now my go to place and if that's what your looking for this is the best spot. I also saw a bunch (I mean about 5 groups) of bachelorette parties. This a super place for that and for eating brunch or going out for drinks. Only drawback is it could use some minor updating, but not enough to not want to stay there. It's overpriced a bit but so is every place in SF. It's worth the money so get your bathing suit, or not, and go rock out!
