Good 7.0 From 651 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Good economy stay
This hotel is in a great location. The hotel itself is dated and the room was smelly but they are in the process of renovating so that should be taken care of soon.
Justin, ca4 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
I loved the location of this hotel and they had a coupon for $9 breakfast at Brattley Hall.. The location is great, just a cross to Walgreen to buy Visitor's pass, capable car stop in front of the hotel.
Yani, ca2 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
Not recommended
It was awful. Run down, dirty and poor service. Not what I saw on the website when I booked the room.
Jill, ca1 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
Great spot,
Great location, easy to get to from airport. Room was a bit tight but functional. Bed was small for 2.
Steve, ca2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Horrid bed
In fairness they are advertising a big refurbishment project for 2019, but right now it is grotty. Room was very (very!) shabby and basic, beaten up tatty furniture, thin sheets, no comforts whatsoever. It’s an older building right on Powell St so quite noisy at night. But what actually made me check out two days early was the horribly uncomfortable, lumpy, bumpy bed that was playing havoc with my back and I just couldn’t face another night in it. Front desk staff were ok, not super warm and welcoming, just the minimum required. You didn’t feel you could approach them with any questions. What you do get with this hotel is location, location, location, right on Union Square and super easy to get everywhere, close to a cable car stop, close to a Big Bus stop. It was a longish but flat, easy walk from here to the piers (took about 40 minutes). Plenty of restaurants and bars in the area. Also big name (but expensive) shops. If this is your price range and you have time to research I’m sure you can find nicer for the same price.
