Disappointing - 2 out of 5

Meggan, Cazadero, visiting DNA Lounge Sat, 9 November 2019

Liked: Room was nice and clean.
Disliked: Very poor service with the clerk at check in. Their system was down which I get can't be helped at times but we had already paid for the room in full and no sympathy was shown. There also was construction on the building early in the morning and someone was hammering outside for hours. Then we were also woken up by employees asking if they left a card in our room and we said no and they just came in and were looking around, not really what you want when you spend $250 on a room.

Disappointing - 2 out of 5

Brenda S S, Mendocino, CA Thu, 3 January 2013

Room was small but did have large walk-in closet. It appeared to be clean and the beds were comfortable. Extremely close to Bill Graham venue. Very annoyed at the long waits for the 2 of 4 small elevators that were in working order. Worst hotel shower ever - long wait for warm water and miniscule water pressure. No in-room coffee so had to trek downstairs to the crowded Starbucks every a.m. Ice machine had ice about 1/2 the time. No room service available at all. Electrical outlet needs replaced. Might have been better satisfied at half the price I paid which was around $750 for 3 nights + $45/night for parking. I'd probably opt for the Best Western next time there's a concert at that venue.

Liked: Room was clean; very close to Bill Graham venue. Friendly, cheerful maid service very helpful.
Disliked: 2 out of 4 small elevators operable; very little shower water pressure; no in-room coffee & no room service available; had to set a bag in front of electrical outlet to keep plug from falling out.
