Stayed here for 8 nights and thought the place was excellent. When I checked in, I was told that breakfast was included- it was basic like cereal and toast, but it was for free- so that was even better. Great helpful staff, clean and tidy. Excellent location - 2 min walk and you are on market st where all the...

These hotel rooms were fine. They were small with no view or anything extra. I wouldnt consider the bed comfortable but it was not horrible. The location was very central to shopping and close to the cable cars which can take you down by the water. The breakfast wasn't anything special and there wasn't a good place to hang out...

If you're after a low budget, central hotel, then this is it. The rooms are small and basic but clean. The hotel is central to the main shopping areas, cable cars and the F tram which takes you to Fishermans Warf and other tourist areas. Breakfast is included in the rate but is limited to toast, muffins and 'orange juice'.

This European-esque hotel was pretty much what we expected for the price we paid in San Fran. The rooms are small and the hotel doesn't offer much privacy or amenities. The room was clean and had everything we needed for 2 nights, and we felt safe and comfortable during our stay. The complimentary breakfast was just the basics, but hey,...

The hotel is adequate for the rates they charge. The rooms are smallish but clean and well decorated. The front office staff were okay but didn't go out of their way to be overly friendly or helpful. The main concern I had with my stay was that they decided to renovate the breakfast area during my stay and held the...

Located right in Union Square this hotel offers easy and convenient access to the BART (connecting to the airport and other locations within the city) and the cable cars (connecting to Fisherman's Warf etc.) There are plenty of restaurants offering everything from Mexican, to Thai to Italian as well as staples like the Cheesecake Factory and a Starbucks just one...

I wanted a room in the city that could sleep 6 comfortably and I am so happy that I found The Stratford. They have a family suite that has two full sized beds in one room and a queen bed in a separate room. Each room has its own entry doors too. There is one bathroom, but the queen room...

This hotel is a GREAT value if you are on a budget in SF, do not have a car, and want to be a few steps from Union Square. It's probably the best deal. The cable cars stop right outside, the bus lines are close, and so is the BART. The hotel is old, but is nicely renovated and clean....

The hotel is just next to Union Square and a cable car line. Breakfast was fine, staff was friendly and the room was just what we expected it to be. Not that big or fancy but for us the location was more important when it came to price and we had to choose. Parking is VERY expensive. We parked in...
