I rarely write negative reviews but I have to say I’m quite frustrated with this experience. When I got to the hotel the check in was easy and since they saw my note that it was my boyfriends birthday, they gave us a bottle of champagne in the room which was very kind. It was a very small room which was a bit surprising as it wasn’t the cheapest hotel. Everything was good until the nighttime when we tried to use the WiFi. The man at the front desk said they were sorry and that it wasn’t working currently and their tech guy is gone until late morning. That was quite frustrating as the TV had advertised connecting to your streaming services and my boyfriend had to work on his computer in the morning. Then when it was time for bed it was quite warm in the room so I went to use the AC it did not work. I called back saying it’s not working and what should I do and the man informed me that their technician was gone for the night and they apologize and can take off any amenity fees. We did not have any upgrades or amenities and at this point I was pretty upset as I can’t sleep in the heat. The front desk told me they could take off my $30 something taxes for the trouble. The bed and comforter were great, but I didn’t sleep well. The next day I had 3 charges- one for the incidental but the other two I had to ask to be taken off once in person and twice over the phone. They said they charged me accidentally for the cost of the room even though I paid through Expedia.

COVID hit San Fran really hard, there are a ton on homeless people shooting up drugs on neighboring streets so be careful. This hotel was amazing, they take care of you really well. The quarters are tiny but its expected for the area. The bed was super comfy, we couldn't hear other peoples in other rooms. The sound of traffic was just in the background.

The staff at Staypineapple were friendly and accommodating. Although small, the rooms were nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. My only complaint would be the parking situation. We had to park in a garage three blocks away and paid $39 a day. Overall, I would definitely choose to stay at a Staypineapple hotel on my next vacation.
