It's not their fault that they are in a dirty urban place...

The lock on our door wouldn't work we had to get staff to open our door every time we arrived in the room. The parking spots we so small we barely fit with our small car. The heater was not working in the room. The towels we baby sized and the bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable, we left early from the hotel. The only good thing about the hotel was the cleandlyness of the rooms and that the room included a fridge.

Sketchy neighborhood

Pros: Clean comfortable room
Cons: The outside needs a complete overhaul to make it attractive
Location: A good Cambodian restaurant nearby - Phnom Pen. Near Mills College
This hotel was very interesting, to say the least. It was in a rather sketchy neighborhood, and the registration office was kept locked - so people had to be buzzed in. Presumably because of the neighborhood. I booked on-line and the room looked nice. When I got there, I was surprised to find that the outside of the motel looked like a complete dump - run-down, needed a paint job, looked to be in very poor condition. Then when I got to my room, I was equally surprised to discover it was very nice inside - wooden floors, nicely painted room, comfortable furniture, fridge, microwave, fridge, tv, free wi-fi, a/c. My conclusion was that the outside was left to look run-down to discourage thieves from breaking in. Everything went well, and I had a good night's sleep. So, if you're not nervous about a questionable neighborhood, this is good value.

Horrible conditions

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: looked like the ghetto
The place was run down & looked like a drug dealers paradise. Horrible conditions. Definitely not work a fraction of the price they look to charge

Rooms updated

Owners have done a great job of updating the rooms. Nice furniture - comfortable bed - clean - big TV. Owners told me they updated the rooms first before the reception area so dont be put off by the check in appearance. Unfortunately right on a busy street. Bring earplugs and you will be fine. Not in a good neighborhood but great for the price. Not a bad drive to get downtown San Fran so proximity is ok as well.
