I would recommend this hotel for the accomodations, we were satisfied with our stay - a great value for the price. It's centrally located and near public transit and restaurants (Tommy's Joynt rocks). The lobby was nice enough... nothing fancy but completely fine.
The rooms were nice and clean - not huge, but for SF the room size was what you'd expect. The water temp during our showers would briefly get hot back to normal. Probably because of the age of the hotel, though this wasn't a problem for us. The elevator was also beat up and a bit slow, but this didn't cause us any trouble.
IHOWEVER, was expecting $10/day parking, but they wanted $20!! We parked our car elsewhere to save a few dollars. This seemed like a sneaky tactic and for this reason I probably wouldn't return to this place. Otherwise a fine place to stay.
