Old boutique hotel in a great location with a comfortable bed at a reasonable price but Card key failed to open the door most of the time. Problem with door sensors Hole in the floor covered by carpeting - tripping hazard Advertised nighty complimentary wine and cheese reception did not occur Fitness room : tiny with just one bike, 1 treadmill and 2 hand held weights Very thin walls - Hear entire conversations of guests next door

We stayed in one of the penthouse suites. The room looked nice overall. The main reason for booking this suite was the in room jacuzzi tub. At first glance, one of the control knobs was broke off and sitting on the side of the tub. When we went to use the tub that evening, no power, no jets, nothing. I was extremely disappointed. The bathroom was very elegant. It also had a flaw. One of the handles on the shower control was missing. It had his and her shower head's and handles. If these problems did not exist, I would have been extremely satisfied.

Reasonable location, reasonable price, not fancy

Cons: Attitude of one of the front desk people is not suitable for mid-scale hotel.
The hotel is an old building with a gate-slide elevator. The rooms are small but with high ceilings and older architecture. Location is OK, but you'll need to walk 5-15 minutes to get to anything interesting. Some of the hotel staff is very helpful. One hotel staff member at front desk was rather dismissive and would not go through minimum effort to help with a request because she "can't take responsibility for that". (Request was to find out who was on duty at 2am so that I could ensure my car could be pulled out of valet at that time). Probably many other options in this price range which are better.

Welcome to the Worst Hotel on Travelocity

Pros: Absolutely nothing, this hotel should not even be listed.
Cons: I don't even know where to begin.
Booked it quite by accident, meant to book a different hotel with a very similar name that was recommended to me (replaced 'Inn' with 'Hotel"). Someone had clearly been chain smoking in the bathroom, room was filthy, bet was full of gritty stuff I'd like to pretend was only sand. Terrible, just absolutely and completely terrible.

Funky Hotel on Nob Hill

Pros: Rooms were different and had a European feel.
Cons: Lobby was so underwhelming and no place to enjoy a cocktail. I would not invite business associates back to the loby for a drink befI did not invite
Location: On the fringe. About a ten minute walk to anything interesting.
The hotel lobby needs work as it is old and dingy. Rooms were clean and funky with high old world ceilings but no air flow and hot.... Box fans did not get the room cooled down at night. Nice odd hotel but no bargain.

Wonderful value.

We loved our stay at Nob Hill Hotel. Clean, unique, with old world charm like antique fixtures and spiral staircase with wooden beams. Staff was friendly and helpful. For the price I expected more shabby- broken lightcase or wobbly bed- but everything was just right. The room was small, but we didn't mind, because the experience was lovely.

Victorian charm

Wanted a quick getaway to the city, and found this cute hotel in charming nob hill for a great rate! The building is a Victorian style, old cool elevator, classic detail crown moldings, newly redone lobby, cool staff, but.....the rooms are pretty small. They said they are renovating the rooms floor by floor, so I'm sure they will be updated soon. The rooms could use new duvets and decor, but the bathrooms looked new and clean! A plus for sure. Ask for a room with a city view because otherwise you feel very boxed in with a close view of other guests. A little awkward. But overall a good experience , and would visit again once the rooms are redone.
