- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
This do-gooder hotel is primed for budget- and eco-conscious travelers, and at one of the best price points in all of San Francisco. The five-story turn-of-the-century building has historic charm throughout its 117 eco-chic guest rooms and suites, which more closely resemble small city studios with their compact desks, iPod docks, flatscreen TVs, colorful lamps and pillows, and warm wood accents. Fitting the hotel’s green ethos, the beds are made from reclaimed wood and recycled soda bottles, and each room has energy and water-conserving toilets, while the in-room “take a book, leave a book” program highlights the communal and sharing feel of the hotel. Prius drivers will be happy to know they offer complimentary parking for hybrid cars (a big money-saver in downtown San Francisco, where overnight parking can run a bill nearly into the triple digits).
In the Area
Located in the heart of SoMa, the neighborhood around Good is bustling. A few blocks’ walk will take you to The Warfield, a 2,300-seat music venue that hosts major rock music acts. Just a little farther is Piano Fight, a small, hip venue serving craft beer, sketch comedy, and other live entertainment. For breakfast, Dottie’s True Blue Cafe is a local staple, offering hearty homespun pancakes and waffles in a kitschy setting (go early, as a line forms fast here). Sightglass Coffee is just around the corner, pouring frothy cappuccinos in a hipster environment. Should you decide to venture further afield, the city’s BART subway system is just a block from the hotel.
How to Get There
Generally a good hotel, the rooms are adequately sized, have simple but useful amenities, and are very clean. Décor is a bit tired, but fine, while the bed firm and comfortable.Very friendly staff, who made you feel welcome and at ease.
No heater first night, slept with two blankets and sweater on, room was dirty. This was booked through Expedia at a rate of ~350/night, supposed to cover everything typical, but when I checked out, lady at front desk claimed I need to pay $58 to cover wifi, coffee..
Great place just a little small. Try not losing anything because you'll probably not get it back. Every time we call, the house keeper is unavailable. Lost a pair of glasses. Just want them back please. I can't see without them
We were due to stay in another hotel; however when we arrived it had been closed. There was a number on the door to phone and the advisor told us we were to stay here.
We were on the first floor outside. No lift (that I noticed) we had to haul our heavy suitcases up the flight of stairs (narrow corroder as cleaning trolley was outiside a room) This supposed to be part of our honeymoon.
When we entered the room it had two single beds.
The room smelt of stale and of urine.
We advised front desk that we would not be staying. And left within 20 minutes of checking in.
The lady on front desk was respectful of our decision not to stay and was friendly and helpful.
Nothing else to say, the hotel is located in the middle of the dirtiest area in San Francisco! There are groups of junky people who lived close to this hotel,
The rooms are very dirty too, the carpet is old and dirty, the bed is awful!
My advice, just RUN!
