This is a hotel in need of renovation. My stay was pleasant, but the management could do better. The Wi-Fi is the only added feature. I will say that my room was very clean and the cable and TV were up to par, but after 3 days, I still hadn't found the switch for the bathroom light. The location is...

I can't call this place a hotel. Definitely unreasonable price even considering the location and San Francisco hotels' high costs. I wonder where the other person took those nice pictures. We felt some bad smell from the hallway. Small room with falling-off wallpapers (could see Styrofoam behind), smelly bed, and old and dirty furnitures greeted us. In the bathroom, there...

Was in San Francisco during Bay to Breakers weekend. This was the cheapest we could find last minute. After reading some of the old reviews about this place I wasn't too excited to go here.

One thing though is that the room is small...

Free breakfast...

Very basic. Very expensive for what you get and the staff borders between incompetent and just rude. When we asked about directions they seemed put out. When we asked for a shuttle to the airport we got different answers each time we enquired. Front desk employees...all of them....we rude and stand off ish

I had a very good experience in Gateway INN, compared to it's price, it was really valuable, clean place with very good room service, private rooms with quality restroom, TV, WIFI, Microwave, Refrigerator, comfortable bed. Overall it's really affordable and recommended for all solo travelers and/or quick tripper friends. Again, it was the best of it's price range, and almost...
