We booked the hotel because San Francisco was too expensive - this wans'nt cheap though - only "cheaper"
The location is not ideal if you want off to San Fran any now and then beacuse there is quite a distance to the nearest BART.
The neighbourhood is not to cute either, we felt a little unsafe in the night time due to a lot of strange types and homeless people.
The room was okay and the receptionist was a nice young lady who gladly helped with whatever.
But if you want to be in San Francisco, you should pay the extra dollars and book a hotel down town instead.
