This hotel is perfectly located to everything. Hotel staff were amazing, very friendly & nothing was too much trouble. If we get to visit San Francisco again, we wouldn't stay anywhere else. The hotel is undergoing renovations, however, this didnt cause any disruption to quests. Our room was clean, comfortable & included everything we needed.

Great hotel but within 30 minutes from check out my car was broken and I was robbed and all was gone wile having lunch, at 11 30 am. My staying IN SF was a nightmare there after. People be aware! Take everything with you even if you have to use a restroom. SF is unsafe at anytime .

Stayed at the Cartwright in November of 2016 due to a friend's visit. We picked this hotel because it's conveniently located next to Union Square and also because it's pet friendly. Rooms are somewhat small but have recently been remodeled so they looked nice and clean. There's parking available but have to leave the car a street behind the hotel....

One block off Union Square; along the cable car route to everything; Starbucks close by for breakfast; cozy seating in lobby and bar in room behind the front desk; small room and very small newly-fitted bath; very comfy bed! Would definitely stay there again for the price!!

We booked at the last minute, so there was not a lot of cost friendly hotels available. There was a massive conference on in town and we were warned by our travel agent it wasn't going to be great. The room was very small, not much room to walk past the bed etc. It was also very warm and had...

Very, very, very small rooms. Very, very, very dark hallways. Very, very, very old. Very, very, very clean room. Very, very, very nice staff. Very, very, very good location. Very, very, very different from the typical Best Western.

Hotels in San Francisco are not cheap and we were happy with our stay here as it was one of the cheapest prices we could find for a decent place to stay. The hotel is old but our room seemed to have been remodeled and worked just fine (we had two twin beds). The lobby was nice and the staff...

The location is central and very easy to get to from the airport using BART. It is an old property but our room, though tiny was smartly appointed and nice. The hallways are dark and narrow and the doors to the rooms are thin and not adequately secure for visitors to a city of this size. That being said, the...

The hotel is right in the heart of downtown and close to major shopping & train locations. The rooms were great and all amenities were provided. The staff was also very warm and cordial. The 1 missing star was because they were under renovation and it was a little musty and they don't have complimentary breakfast, which for a business...
