Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The rooms maximized the cozy space they had and I was surprised at the size and cleanliness of the bathrooms. the wall do a good enough job at blocking out the highway noise but cant really stop the airport landings, but its good enough to rest. how ever the amount of hot water you get in the rest room is not hot enough for a full body bath, and the spatub does not work.

4/10 Poor

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
The last when I checked in was super nice and I liked the old style look and my bedroom was clean. However, the bathroom was filthy, both the toilet and tub was clogged, it has no hand soap or any amenities. If you have a disability do not go here, no elevator only stairs and the first floor rooms are still up some stairs.

Our substituted room had a good bed. The room was loud and had few amenities. This Hotel is more Hostel and had serious problems with staffing. We had food stolen from the secured refrigerator (staff?) The room we booked was trashed so we were given a bigger room that didn't the requested mini-fridge or microwave in it. Staffing was really hit and miss. The front desk was rarely staffed. I would never recommend this place. The only plus was it's far cheaper than anything else near Little Italy.

NO bathroom in room! I didn't know this. The rooms are smaller than depicted but the area is great around the hotel. There is no permanent front desk person just a number that didn't answer so i waited for 30 min before getting my room because there was no one there. It was cute San Francisco style though.

No safe parking. Very dirty and poorly maintained. Was not satisfied at all. The staff was nice but we didn't feel safe enough to stay amd ended up leaving and booking elsewhere. The only parking close to the property was under a freeway next to a homeless camp.

STAY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Apparently the homeless have keys to the building. They’ve destroyed the shared bathroom for my room and one is sleeping in the courtyard as I type this message. After reading the reviews this isn’t an isolated incident. This place used to be so much better, it’s sad to see the state it’s in now. I’ll never return.
