Location isn't everything

Posted 15-May-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Shelf in shower
Whilst you cannot fault the location of this budget hotel, and whilst in a city like San Francisco you don't expect to spend lots of time in your room, it was disappointing to find quite how small the rooms were. So small that I could only get in to bed by squeezing down the side of the bed past the massive window ledge to get in. Not easy, especially in the middle of the night. (And I have the massive bruise on my leg as a reminder!) the shower was tiny.... Not so problematic but there was no shelf for shower gel so you had to crouch down to pick anything up. The wifi was pretty lousy and this hotel has the slowest lift EVER! Breakfast may be free - but not worth it.

Room has basic needs: Clean and comfortable bed; Bathroom is clean and private bath (within the room, which is important to me). Free Breakfast is very basic, but is something, and you are not paying a lot for the room.

Affordable hotel in Union Square & Market St

Posted 21-Apr-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Plumbing and,purchase new linens.
Location: See above
You get what you pay for! I want to mention that we stayed at this hotel twice before (6 years ago) and had pleasurable experiencs. Great location, conveniently located minutes away from Union Square and Westfield shopping center. This time, however, the sheets were yellow and stained (so we slept on top of bedspread with our clothes on). It was almost midnight when we checked in, so we were too tired to complain and move our child. Also, the water pressure in shower consisted of 3 streams of water! The prices almost doubled over the years, yet we were willing to pay because of location. We were extremely disappointed in condition of our room.

No frills hotel in great location

Posted 19-Apr-2015
Hotel Stratford was a perfect spot for my recent visit to San Fran. location and price were priorities for me, and we loved how the location felt safe and was convenient to shops and the cable cars and walking distance to some other neighborhoods. We did find the room with its two twin beds to be a little bit dorm like but we weren't in the room much and didn't need anything too fancy. I would've liked more breakfast options besides just cereal and coffee, but I guess you get what you pay for. I'd recommend this hotel overall.

Nice hotel, great location

Posted 19-Apr-2015
Very central and convienant location. Easy to get to from BART or public transport. Room basic, no coffee making facilities and not much floor space BUT as its only to sleep in it was good enuf considering price. Suprised with free breakfast, basic but good enough....coffee,tea,juice,toast,muffins and cereals. Fruit option available. Staff very polite and helpful. Would deffo stay there again and recommend. We had an awesome time in San Fran

Very convenient as it is in the centre of Union Sq

Posted 18-Apr-2015
Pros: The location and the complimentary breakfast
Cons: I think the design of the room could be improved.
Location: Very convenient to transport and restaurants.
Friendly staff and most helpful with suggestions for restaurants, where to catch the trolley bus and public transport. The room in which we stayed (2 pax) was so small, we had to step back to pass each other!! Also there was no basin (sink) in the bathroom, this was in the corridor of our room.
