    Fabulous

    good location,minutes to Powell St. BART. Sufficiently comfortable rooms. Good value for the price.

    internet for 5.95/day (not free), breakfast is very basic (coffee/tea and a pastry to go)

    Fabulous

    Being in the tenderloin district, looking out the window and down on the hotel for the homeless across the street, we viewed drug deals going down in the early evening as well as one male homeless knocking down a homeless woman. That added spice to our adventure. THE CLOSENESS TO GOOD RESTAURANTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE WAS A BIG PLUS. ALSO, THE CLOSENESS TO A PARKING GARAGE MADE OUR STAY EASIER. THE HOTEL ELEVATOR REMINDED ME OF THE ONE IN THE MOVIE, ROSEMARY'S BABY.

    We may book there again but for the sake of adventure we may try a different hotel in the same area, such as the hotel california.

    Exceptional

    Great central location, friendly, helpful staff, clean, comfortable room, shared bathrooms/showers clean and only 3 rooms share. Coffee, tea and pastry in lobby every morning was nice and they play public radio. Security is tight and owners are on premises which really gave me peace of mind. Quite a diversity of clientele which was fun.

    Superb

    The Hotel is located within 5 minutes walk of Union Square making it ideal for shopping, reasonable cost eating and touring the city of San Francisco. The management were attentive and very helpful to us. The room was clean and tidy.

    There was no heating durring our stay at the Layne Hotel. The room was small for two people and not enough storage for clothing. The bed was huge, great for loving couples.

    Good

    The y were gracious in holding our bags at the hotel after we checked out.

    If you don't have high standards you won't be disappointed.

    Superb

    The knowledgeable staff and the location of the hotel. Also, it was very clean and tidy inside.

    No air conditioner made the room a little too stuffy. If I opened the window it was too noisy outside.

    Sleep! On a thin mattress! On bedsheets that smell of chlorine! BREATHE! Dusty, dirty air which makes your eyes itch. Which makes your allergies act up! Cough for the rest of your trip! EXPERIENCE! Homeless people fighting outside your window! The smell of garbage coming into your room at 7 am! LISTEN! To the night manager talking down to you! Watch him try to have other guests hand over their PASSPORTS to him so that they won't cancel! Tell him about problems in your room! (He won't fix them.) EAT! Outside, because their "breakfast" is watered-down orange juice and a 75 cent store-bought pastry. THE LAYNE HOTEL, ladies and gentlemen! STEP RIGHT UP! All for the low, low price of US$ 130 a night! (non-refundable)

    Superb

    Location fantastic, friendly,lots of character. Nothing fancy. Not for you if you measure a place by modern amenities. Walking distance to everything,union square, street car, Marc to airport for $8.15, muni to Castro,noe, mission, walk to nob hill . Easy access to lots of restaurants less expensive and pricey.parking garage within half a block. I felt as lone female perfectly safe but 1-2 blocks in wrong direction could be dicey, no reason to goin that direction. I would stay there again. My husband,who joined me later and is used to travel for work and higher priced hotels did not agree with me.

    The room I stayed stinks and they were not able to move me. The bathroom on my floor was not functional during my stay and not to mention its a share bath already! Anyway, the hotel is TERRIBLE!
