    Fridge kept making noise. Nobody would clean your room if u stay more than one night. No free parking.

    Cheap but dirty.

    The price was great, the location was good for me, and the staff was pretty good about blocking me a room in advance. The rooms were decent and had sinks, nice TVs, dressers, and lots of closet space. The beds were ok but not great.

    The restrooms were disgusting. The kitchen needs cleaning and refurbishing. Some jackass was talking loudly on his cell phone and playing music at 1:30 a.m. I couldn't close my window to tune him out. It was really annoying.

    Great friendly staff

    The building is historic. The historic El Capitan Inn over the former grand El Capitan Hote from 1960s, but now a parking lot however the historic hotel portion remains. It is a great deal for the price. Great friendly employees. Friendly housekeeping. Safe area with vibrant hispanic culture. You feel like youre in Mexico, Central, and South America. Very fascinating.

    El Capitan: Brought us some laughs because it was

    Price was affordable, but you can see why.

    The location while convenient to many things is not in a great area. Recommendation: arrive during daylight hours. Make sure your rooms are properly cleaned, our toilet had feces in it! Overall: We won't be returning, but this could work well for some people.

    It's cheap and there's a bed. That's about the only thing this hotel has going for it.

    The staff is rude, the bathrooms smell worse than the outhouses at Coachella, and the whole hotel is incredibly grimey. I think a more accurate description is a hostel with private rooms.

    The worst hotel

    the worst hotel I ever stayed. No parking, no towel, bad costumer services. And plus as soon as I checked in and go and check out the room. I gave back the key to them and leave. They charged $94 and it's not worth it. To be honest I would like to get refund. Plus bad neighbors

    Great Location and Value

    We were right next to some nice restaurants and bars. The bus line out front took us all over town. Great price. Rooms had everything we needed. Staff was friendly and helpful. For the price, you cant beat it! If you are looking to go to SF on a budget and want to be close to all the main attractions of the city, the El Capitan Hotel is the spot!

    Just small details, but they add character to the building.
