As expected, the hotel is dated and is need of a makeover from top to bottom....including this miniature showers and toilets. However, again, from a location standpoint you cannot find a better spot to be in the heart of the city. Would def stay there again.

I must say that for an inn this was quite amazing. I will say the inn is located in the Civic Center area of San Francisco, which is not the most visually appealing area...however this was the area that we needed to be in, considering that it's close to everything, and everywhere we needed to be for the Memorial weekend festivities that we had planned. The hotel is not impressive to drive up to, but it had paid parking of $25 a night (which is a steal in San Francisco), and the rooms were impressive considering that it was an inn and neighborhood. It was super clean, beds were very comfortable, amenities (e.g. plenty of towels, shampoos, dryer, television, fridge, cups, etc. were all included), bathroom and vanity was nice, large ironing board and iron, and the furniture were on point. The hangers were a little damaged and one of the lamps but it was more than enough, better thank any other inn I had ever stayed at. AC seemed fairly new as well, not run down like other places. It wasn't perfect, but it was more than I expected from any inn. And the lovely lady, resident manager (or owner) was fantastic, she was sweet, respectful, and very attentive. We all had a great stay and we will be coming back.

Pocket Guide: San Francisco Financial District Hotels
The bulls and bears of industry tread the streets of the Financial District, home to the city’s tallest buildings, including the iconic Transmerica Pyramid. The towers give way to The Embarcadero, the broad, palm-lined avenue that begins at the San Francisco Giant’s AT&T Park and ends at Fisherman’s Wharf. The road passes by the Ferry Building, a landmark transformed into an artisanal food market.
