Well, this was quite an experience. We booked online through hotels.com for 3 days at $39-40/night. We wanted to stay an extra day, but they said they were booked up. Next day early though they said they could give us another day but for $57, which she lowered to $47.
The first evening it was awhile until we turned on a bright light. Then we noticed there were some highly questionable stains on the bedspread. I called the desk, and, when I insisted, the desk clerk brought up another bedspread. He was just going to leave the old one lying on our floor until I insisted he take it with him. Another quirky characteristic is the elevator. It has signs written in Magic Marker on the wall saying, "Caution - speed elevator" and saying it went "fast" up and "slow" down. Actually, the only speeds I noted were "slow" and "slower."
We enjoy funky hotels anyhow. The room itself was quite nice and spacious. And there are mini-fridges and microwaves in the rooms.
Unique Quality: ** Important - The Rodeway is 6-8 blocks from Hallidie Plaza. Walking that route even in broad daylight is like running the gauntlet in Beirut. There are beggars, homeless people, derelicts, many high or drunk. I'm a big guy prepared to mix it up, and I was still concerned for our safety. There is a bus (#31) that leaves from and arrives at the western corners of Eddy & Van Ness. Be smart and use it.
i have stayed here on each of my trips to San Francisco and will continue to on any future trips. while not in the very best of neighborhoods its certainly not in the worst of them either. the rooms are clean and have a microwave and a small fridge, nice to
have in my opinion.
there is a pizza place and a burger king just outside the door and perhaps best of all, they have FREE parking, rare in S.F. granted its limited, not as many spaces as rooms but ive never had a problem getting a space.
i am not a fancy pants type person, if you are you this place isnt for you, but if all you require is a clean room at a reasonable (for S.F.) price then this is a good choice.
Directions: near the tenderloin, lots of homeless in the vicinity, but then again, they seem to be everywhere in S. F.
