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
My review is not based on the size of the hotel, but rather on the quality of my overall experience with my son. The staff went out of their way to provide assistance when I needed it. They were very polite and patient. The hotel provided easy access to transportation to everywhere in the city. I had a child and it made my stay easy and cost effective. our room was quiet and peaceful. A small hotel that lives up to its name, good hotel.
The airconditioning in our room did not work (or maybe did not exist). The location of the hotel was awful with almost surrounded with homeless people making going out at night unsafe for anyone. Rooms were tiny and small, very bad ventilation.
The staff were friendly and nice.
The one bed in the room we had to share was far to small for two people. That didnt help our stay but the homeless people who stayed at the busstop in front of our room who where screaming and shouting all night din't either. The music from their getthoblasters and the lights and sound of the police cars who several times tried to send them away also keept us awake all night. If you like or need a good nights rest dont stay at Good Hotel.
