We had a fine time.
Let's face it - this is a budget hotel. We jagged a great internet deal 3 nights (Thurs - Sat) for $150 total. The hotel is in a great, central location and was a great jumping off point for all of our adventures. Did I see homeless people...yes, did they bother or harass me...no, but unlike other reviewers I don't expect the hotel staff to clean up the streets of San Francisco for my viewing pleasure. The hotel itself was clean and neat but this is a really old building so high speed elevators and state of the art rooms were not something I expected. The staff were fine and while they didn't put on a song and dance show for us the were polite and helpful. To sum it up... if you're expecting 5 star service and facilities for $70 or less a night keep looking - and good luck to you. If you're after simple, clean, cheap and central the Monarch is a great hotel.
