    This hotel was within the realm of affordable, and was reasonably central. The room was recently renovated, bright and clean.

    Very very slow front desk service. The hallways and stairways were shabby and dirty and made us worried about how the room would be. Advertised free wifi did not reach the room. Our kingsize bed had a plastic/rubber mattress cover (for bed bugs?) - fortunately with a zip so we were able to remove it. Advertised decaf coffee didn't exist; non- dairy creamer only, of course. No fridge. No shampoo. Thin, sad towels. And desk clerk tried to overcharge us on checkout - we had to correct the bill ourselves. $140 to sleep on a rubber mattress is a bit much.

    I like the costumer srvice from the lady in the morning when I was having my cup of coffe and the napking dispenser was empty she cross the stret immediatly and got a packet of napkinhs I think she was a haous keeper.

    There was nothing I liked, we almost left and went back home!

    There was no parking, we had to find street parking in San Francisco. Our accommodations were not at the hotel but across the street in an old apartment building! (I'm not kidding) the room was so tiny and filthy we were worried about roaches and could not use the shower because it was so dirty, the headboard was broken when we got there which made us feel gross about sleeping in the bed. I was charged twice once at check in and again on check out.

    They do a reasonable job of restricting the youth from staying. The room has amenities such as coffee maker and ironing board etc. not expected at the price range.

    Noisy guests at 2 am My reservation had been cancelled, don't know why.

    Free parking (not easy to come by in sf area)! Clean, proper, nice looking rooms with free wifi and friendly staff.

    Bad bad neighbourhood.... Location is terrible, since there are crackheads, drug users and a lot of homeless people and gangs crowding the otherwise empty streets up to Market St and beyond. Just a few blocks away from 7th St the neighbourhood is way better. It's ok to stay there, but I wouldn't wander the streets by myself at night. Breakfast was extremely light - one pastry, one cup of coffee/tea and one cup of juice. The lobby is nice enough, but the signs saying you only have 15 mins max to finish your breakfast are a bit stressful.

    Free Parking places and easy access from the South of the City. Not far from the center. Wifi.

    Breakfast.

    The place is easy to find, and I could park the car in the hotel's garage. From there is is only a short walk (30 mins) to Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square is even closer. The location is it's main selling point. The room was quite large but for the rest not special. Breakfast consisted of a bun and a cup of coffee, hardly worth the word breakfast. The hotel may not be in the best neighbourhood, but the room doors appear solid and safe, being all metal. All in all the hotel did not disappoint since it needed to provide a place for the night. As a tourist visitor to the city, most of the time you will be out anyway.

    From the room maid to the top front desk staff, everyone was quite courteous and helpful ---I felt like I was staying on Nob Hill! My rooms soundproofing was excellent. The "19" Muni Line was right accross the street and taxis drove by all the time. All in all, Knights Inn - Downtown was a great value for the money!!! Will stay there again.

    The bathroom fan was lauder than a 747. The bathroom towels were a joke ---- worn and extremely thin. The plastic mattress cover was quite uncomfortable

    What I liked most was the location of Hotel. It was near all of my destinations for the weekend.

    I did not like that the comforter was ripped (slashed), no elevators at our location, no view windows,small room, no ice buckets or refrigerator in hotel room. But most of all only 3-4 working tv channels!

  • Older travelers
    3.2

    The small courtyard was nice.

    This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. It was filthy, smelly and small. There were many stipulations that were not made clear at the time of booking and no one seemed to be able to accommodate us appropriately. The 'continental breakfast' was the worst, unhealthy horrible food and the weakest most terrible coffee I have ever had. While I was in line asking for change (which was not provided for me) another guest was complaining about the bed having injured her! We will never stay at any of these hotels again and will spread this information around.
