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
Your hotel is STILL pending the charge on my credit card when I paid in cash at check out on April 6th, 2019. This was three weeks ago. I cannot use my credit card because of this. I was on hold three times.
Great price and space. Creative neighborhood with lots of good coffee spots and places to eat. Its easily accessible by public transport and walking distance from many locations. Hotel staff friendly and very helpful. Had a spacious room and happy with my stay. May need a company to walk back to the hotel in the evening, the area is well appreciated by street people.
Rooms are cute, small, clean but a bad location. A lot of homeless. One homeless guy stole our sandwiches at the subway down the street. Outside our window we saw a dead homeless guy brought back to life. Paramedics had to shock him. We saw A few disturbing things.
This was my second stay. The hotel is a 10 minute ish walk to the Moscone Center where I needed to be. Comfortable though a bit spartan - I guess in order to be "good". My room was bigger than average for San Francisco. The staff where great with a special shout out to Togi who made my experience better than average.
First off, the room was $140. This is an outrageous price for the small, old, and minimalistic room you get. All through the night the air conditioner was making incessant noises turning off and on, which was one of the reasons why I could not sleep. The photos online are not accurate of how dingy the hotel room is. I would not stay here another night even if it was free. Avoid this hotel at all costs.
