I liked it just fine - GET A ROOM ON THE SECOND FLOOR!

March 16, 2020
Booked this hotel very last minute-y. I think it has been rather recently remodeled, so consider the date if you are reading negative reviews. Also, I am given to understand that the neighborhood used to be pretty sketchy. But it's not so bad anymore. I didn't see any worrisome parts. Probably the fastest hotel check-in I've ever had. Extremely efficient and very nice young woman. Worst (but really not very) things first... Cons: - Doors open to the outside. Might not be everyone's cup of tea. We don't mind it. - There is street noise. We didn't think it was bad. As mentioned elsewhere, it's a couple of blocks away from a hospital, so sirens should be expected. Again, we didn't mind. - Toilet/shower room was very tiny small. Also, weird shower. But I guess they remodeled the best they could given what they started with. - The cups provided were styrofoam. Disappointing. Only 2 by coffee maker. None in bathroom. But they had plastic cups near the ice machine. Still not ideal, but we're kinda picky about some stuff. - No in-room safe. Probably should be one. Now for the good stuff... Pros: - Free parking! Possibly a common occurrence on this strip of motel row, but appreciated nonetheless. - Mini-fridge. Not always available at this price point. - Lots of drawer space. (But only 4 hangers and no luggage rack, go figure...not a deal-breaker, though.) - Room was very clean. - Expansive vanity made up for teeny-tiny bathroom. - Modern decor & furnishing. - Hipster/retro/funky vibe. And I am none of those, but it's better than generic & boring. So it was a plus for me. :-) My own personal hotel rating includes the following questions: Q: Haw many nights do I think I could stay there comfortably? A: Two. Three in a pinch. Q: Would I stay there again? A: Yes. I would not recommend this hotel for grandparents or families with children. Probably not their scene. But I'd vouch for it to anyone else. I liked it just fine   ~ Guest

Inn at Temescal

February 11, 2020
This was the most affordable hotel with the best reviews in the immediate area. Hotels closer to the airport were a lot more expensive. That is one of the positives. A couple of negatives to keep in mind. The hotel is close to a fairly busy street and close to a hospital. So you'll hear first responder vehicles regularly and you'll hear vehicle traffic almost constantly. Also, I requested an early wake up call and got it an hour early. Early flight and requested 3:30 a.m. wake up and got 2:30 a.m. Not pleasant at all. Despite the negatives, I'd still recommend this over all motels in the area   ~ Guest

Very clean, great location

September 04, 2019
We arrived really late (around 2am). We spent the first night expecting average conditions instead we appreciated how clean the rooms were and how comfortable the beds were. We had the following day walking around in San Francisco and back to the hotel at night. Hospitable staff   ~ Guest

Great First Stay - Great Reception

April 08, 2019
Overall GREAT! Great room and great price. Sabina was working when I arrived. She helped checked me in and she was great. Very friendly and helpful. Able to answer all my questions. She is also local so is able to help out with local knowledge. One or two suggestions could be made for the room but nothing worth going into detail here (mgmt may reach out to me for info). I will DEFINITELY be returning   ~ Guest
