The hotel was a pleasant surprise. The lobby is elegant & refined with a lovely garden and coy pond wrapped around the lobby. The room was up high and has great city views. The bed was comfortable and the interior design was Asian contemporary. There's high- end fnishes in the bathroom and it was designed with people from Japan n mind.
The hotel is within walking distance of Filmore street with all it's trendy shops and restaurants. Japan town is nothing to marvel at, but I believe this hotel is really something special.
The Inn is a budget motel in a very central location in downtown SF: my car was not needed at all to get around the city. The furnishings, cleanliness, and maintenance in my room and bathroom were of a quality expected in a much more expensive hotel. TV and internet reception was consistently good, and the heating in the room was much appreciated during my 4-day Jan-2014 stay. As other reviewers have remarked, there are indeed numerous homeless on Ellis and other streets around the hotel. But I found the street people harmless and in general good natured (one guy even took care of keeping a nighttime eye on my rented bicycle for me). The Inn manager's objective is to make his motel the best budget lodging in central SF.
We arrived late Friday night to a welcoming smile of the night clerk. The hotel was an older building but had a comfortable feeling. The room was very clean with a huge bed. The bathroom was nice with a big bathtub, nice vintage older feel. It was not a rich hotel, but if you like older building with style. You will like this place. The neighborhood is a little rough, suggest using the Free hotel parking lot.
