STAY AWAY from this place if you want to have a pleasant time in SF! RUDE receiptionist, Unsafe neighborhood, NO heat in the room (I felt freezing the whole time I stayed) Stinky room Low water pressure (on 5th fl) The beds are uncomfy.

What can I say? Where do I start? We have just completed a trans America holiday and all I can say was Awesome......until we arrived here! We had a rough itinerary for our months travel and other than the first week we had no hotels booked so we could be flexible. If we drove and found a town or city...

Worst place ever trust the other reviews are all true and just dont book because if you do there is no cancelation policy and they are really really rude about it! Had a medical emergency and the guy had no sympathy. Horrible people and horrible place. If I could give negative stars I would

Short walk to buses and trams/cable cars and there are eateries and convenience stores in abundance. Also just along from the historical Geary Theater and numerous small boutique galleries if you love the arts. All the staff that we met were friendly and helpful. For the price you get a comfy room with ample storage space for cases and clothes....

I was in room 150 sharing with one friend; going to SF for an international conference. The room had two double beds but I would say for 4 people it'd be quite cramped. That said, the room was clean, and had enough for us to get by 5 nights' stay. Noises outside sometimes even at night. There is lack of...

This hotel is in a dodgy area of san francisco. Buzz to get in 24 hours a day. There checking-in system is prehistoric. There was a gentleman in front of us and by the time he was finished and then us it was at least 25mins! What we found absolutely absurd was a deposit of $250!!! He was quite insistent...

I booked online the day before I was due to traveling. I originallly booked here as the conditions stated that if the hotel was cancelled we would only be charged one nights fee and seemed like the best option as my boyfriend had been sick before hand and I worried over wether to travel for not.

After travelling the states we decided to make a two night pit stop in San Francisco, after struggling to find accommodation at a reasonable price, we decided to splash out and stay in a hotel in the city. However this was a mistake, we came across the Layne hotel, it was advertised to be in a great location, with comfortable...

The location is good in one way you walk to union square and many other places. But it's also only one block away from don't go area. The standard is really low but it at least seems fairly clean. It's really old and worn. But staff is friendly.
