We were looking for a centric location during our stay in San Francisco and this was the perfect place. There are many hotels in the downtown area but they are a bit costly and father away than San Francisco Symphony. After reading some of the reviews we went in with low expectations but we were pleasantly surprised. Room was nice,... More

I must admit I was a little bit worried about staying at this hotel after reading some of the previous reviews. However, I'm glad I took my chances and booked it anyway! The location was perfect for seeing the sights of San Francisco, the staff was friendly and the room was clean. It also seems that it had been remodeled... More

My girlfriend and I are becoming somewhat of hotel professionals...meaning we've done our fair share of traveling. We are not too picky, easy going for the most part and appreciate good customer service. We stayed here for New Years eve after seeing the LION KING. First of all I called ahead to find out if I could check in early... More

Our room was very clean and a good size. Recently remodeled. The front desk lady was very nice and so helpful on guiding us where to go and assisting on the traveling options. Good location, SF Opera very close by. My husband and I would definitely stay here again very convenient in multiple ways.

I was a little weary from the previous reviews, but this wasn't my first time in the civic center/ tenderloin area. I know that the neighborhood has a lot of homeless, as well as resources for them, but this was perfect location for me because I had a three day convention to attend downtown civic center area. I took the... More

Eugene, I appreciate that you choose the Americas Best Value Inn Civic Center as your preferred lodging facility.

We have just installed new custom made headboards in the some... More

We stayed here early Sept 2012, when it was still called the Abigail Hotel. We only paid $80 for a room, but here is what we got... The bathroom window was closed but unlocked; this was worrysome because it was right next to the fire escape and how often do you check windows to confirm that they are indeed locked.... More

Having read many of the reviews for this place (mostly 1-star), I feel compelled to offset those reviews slightly. I stayed here for one night towards the end of October. First, a few words about the area. As an SF Bay Area resident, it's well-known that the area around Civic Center is on the somewhat seedier side, but it isn't... More

This place has got to be the worst place in the world to stay at! It is located at Larkin & McAllister in San Francisco near Civic Center. As I pulled up to the hotel the first thing that I noticed was a large congregation of homeless people hanging out and around the front of the hotel. I witnessed a... More
