Liked: Nice to have a sink and a fridge in the room - that compensates the disadvantage of shared bathroom.

Disliked: A bit weird toilet like smell in the cooridor downstairs.

Liked: Great location and price. The bathrooms and showers are pretty clean and odor-free. The whole place is, for the most part, clean.

Disliked: The rooms are a tad too small and can get hot. The beds in my room were also incredibly squeaky. Parking can be tricky. If you need a place to park M-Sat the garage right next to the hotel is great. You can park overnight and leave before 9am for only $6. If you need a place Saturday night though, then don't waste your time looking for open garages. Instead, drive around the hotel's streets and look for an open meter spot (meters don't operate on Sundays - and yes the meter instructions saying otherwise are wrong. Parking laws changed very recently in SF)
