The Granada is a unique, affordable residence hotel in the heart of San Francisco.  My Dad lived there for several years. He loved the Granada and considered it his home. Since I live on the East Coast, as he got older, it made my life easier knowing he felt safe and comfortable there. Dad made some wonderful friends at the Granada and the family atmosphere helped him cope with his problems.  Dad had a warm heart and was as generous as they come. Towards the end of his life, Dad encountered some special challenges with his day-to-day living. He didn't have the easiest time accepting help when he wasn't able to function independently. Still, with the management's help, Dad managed to continue living at the Granada right up until his final hospitalization and subsequent death. I will always be grateful to the people at the Granada for bringing joy into my Dad's life, standing by him, and showing him love and encouragement in his time of need.

O.K., first, the GOOD-- 1.)  Friendly desk clerks./ 2.) HONEST management. We moved in here for a couple of months after a house fire. The gave us back our cat deposit/pro-rated rent/food cost, within 6 days-- no hassles. 3.) They are VERY prompt about getting repairs/requests up to your room.  4.) The maids work hard and are friendly. 5.) We were/are GRATEFUL they took us in!!  THE BAD: 1.) The night desk clerks are nasty. They IGNORE the handicap access bell. I had to call my husband every time I needed in. Then they cop an attitude if you say anything. 2.) THE BEDDING-- We had BED BUGS. There were cigarette burn holes in the blankets. The sheets had "suspicious" BROWN stains AFTER laundering. 3.)  The Hallways: They REEK w/ cigarette smoke and URINE from the shared bathroom facilities. They do try to keep it clean. BUT, then you have to contend w/ the OVERPOWERING scent of BLEACH!!!!!!!!!!! (It GAGGED me!!!) 4.) Lying in bed at night, the smoke comes in under your door, and, seeps in around the window frames from your neighbors. YUCK!!!!!! This is hard if you are asthmatic!!  5.) THE FOOD:(HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS!!) They tout their food to be,uh,"Cuisine." EXCUSE, ME?!! I'm a retired Chef. This isn't even quality fast food!! SODIUM--SUGAR--HIGH CARB- COLD-COLD-COLD- microwaved- M-E-S-S!!! CAN WE SPELL Y-U-C-K-Y????!!!!!!!! 6.) The Dining Room: Well........... The servers and bussers are, for the most part, DIRTY!!!!!! Their smocks; stained BLACK. Most of them are friendly and attentive. There is one; JOHN, that is even ABUSIVE to elders! I witnessed him SCREAM at the seniors on MORE than one occasion. I called him on it. After that, he made it his business to try and make my experience a living hell. I put him in check. I have my ways. 'NUFF SAID. The bread is always on the verge of moldy. (smells!!)Cheese- processed; hard around the edges, tainted sandwich meat, "sour" smelling salad bar, glasses/cups that would; at times, STICK to the table, (THIS THEY WOULD WIPE OFF W/ A DIRTY RAG!!) and, finally, service that can; at times (depending on who's serving you) be downright contemptuous!!! We, my husband and I, just gave up and went out to eat. If you live here, try to sit in "Mike's" section of the dining room; or, Bill. Two; african american gentlemen, that carry themselves w/ pride and show the clientele respect!! 7.) Head's-Up-- There's a LOT of people who are sick. They can't tend to their hygiene very well. They're SICK. NOT their fault. This is NOT a senior care facility. Independent living, this. I mention this because--8.) THE ELEVATORS!!! These are PAINFULLY S-M-A-L-L!!!!!!!!! And, honey, talk about SLOW----WOW!!! Too many people (ESPECIALLY around feeding times) for such a little space!!! I was grateful for them, BUT............... When you're in a small space w/ the FOUL smells that POUR out of these poor souls;  AND somebody sneezes/coughs; or WORSE-PASSES GAS-- YUCK!!!! Oh, well; you can't get perfection. NOTHING is perfect. BUT... Just come knowing if you want HEALTHY-FREASH food; No foul smells in the halls/elevator; and CLEAN FRESH air-- well, you're NOT gonna' get THAT. Pay for a room w/ private bath WITHOUT meals. Maybe you could just pay for breakfast? If you stick to cereal, omelette; (WITHOUT CHEESE!!)  or, toasted bagel/english muffin, you'll do well. HOLD YOUR BREATH IN THE ELEVATORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HA-HA-HA!!!!!!!! WHAT A PLACE!!!!!

The staff at the Granada are very sweet.  My mother lived here for nearly 7 years.  It's one of the more affordable options in town including meals and a room. The food is reportedly not as good as it used to be, which was difficult when my mother needed to be on a low-salt diet, which is true of a lot of elders.  Spend some time there and then decide.  It may not be right for everyone, but my mother has fond memories.

This is probably the best deal for the money in the city.  That being said, I would like to thank "chef" Juan Esparza, whose kitchen produces some of the most horrendous food I have ever eaten.  His meals provided me with all the motivation I needed to come out of retirement and go back to work at age 69..  Now I can afford to eat elsewhere pretty much whenever I want.  Most of the dinners here compare in quality with budget brand frozen dinners sold at discount super markets.  I should add that the cost of the meals are included in the rent.

The Granada is an excellent place to live.  Management ensures that there are many activities for the residents.   Examples include movie screenings twice a week, bingo, exercise,  birthday dinners and a really fun Friday happy hour with robust singers.  One of the staff members, Kevin, plans awesome free outings with wine and cheese to places like Stinson Beach and Muir Woods   Management is compassionate and understanding,  willing to work with you.  I personally am very grateful to the manager, Tony who helped me big time.  Charles at the front is a kind and debonair presence.   Gene is always helpful. Love living here.

I love this place,they were the only ones that help me ,when i was about to became a homeless .I could not speak a damm english word,and they still hired me as a dishe washer,and gave me food and home.
This is a great place to stay if are to lazy to work outside,and pay your own bills.All you need is to work 2 easy hours  each day and they will give
you "Room and Board".
This is also a great place,if you are hard worker starting your life in the US such as my self, I t Can't be better work ouside without having to worry about pay rent and food cost and every thing else..
Thank you "The granada" Thank you Tonny,thank you Antonny,
I started there with 5 dollar in my paket,And now i have my own business,that has a great reputation on the bay area, and worth more than $300.000.
