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
Terrible and unsafe area, no toiletries provided, odd odor in room, very small rooms. Look else where for the same price and you’ll get a way better room. Ended up leaving after an hour (an hour of trying to get a full refund, which they wouldn’t give me. They kept one nights worth of fees for canceling my reservation when their property wasn’t as advertised)
This is a "glorified" motel, not a quality hotel, as the website would lead you to believe. Staff is borderline unpleasant.
Room was terrible, very smelly, no basic amenities, not even reading lamps by the bed!! And very old threadbare blanket, and SO noisy!!! We will never step foot in that place ever again.
The room rates were good compared to other hotels in the area. I was out walking to different restaurants and shops so I wasn't inside the room very much except to sleep at night and the hotel was quiet.
The hotel is located in an area that close to public transportation and shoppings. The room is clean and the staffs there are friendly. Due to the pleasant experience, I decided to extend my stay to another week.
The hotel is fine, staff is great but the area is a complete dump, crackheads everywhere, nothing open at night. There’s a courtyard across the street that fills up with 25-50 addicts every night who bring boom boxes and have a little dance party. The police come every so often and you can hear them break up the crowd with their sirens and loudspeakers. They leave, come back and are usually a little quieter. Charming place, also, no cable tv.
