I stayed here for vacation and was very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and protected from bed bugs. You need a key card to get to the rooms- my stuff was safe and sound all week. It was noisy, but not overpowering. I didn't need ear plugs, I just kept the air conditioning on (an... More

Thank you for your input regarding your recent stay at our inn. It is refreshing to hear that you had a positive experience in the heart of a major downtown area.

This place. First, after staying in the city, this is not an area I would want to stay in. It's centrally located, but surrounded by riffraff. My first impression after walking in was that it was very loud. The staff had a child in the back who was running around the office. Once I checked in, they ran my credit... More

The room is fine, quite comfortable, and the location is pretty decent. It's only a couple of blocks from BART and Muni, and there's parking too of course. But it's very NOISY. This is an old motel, on the corner of 9th and Mission. There's a building site opposite, but it's the cars, buses, trucks, and everything else that creates... More

Thank you for your input regarding your recent stay at our inn. Unfortunately, you are absolutely correct, we are located at busy corner and at times it can be a bit noisy. We have insulated windows in all of our rooms, but there are times when it is less than ideal to block out the street noise. Nevertheless, we hope... More

We came down to San Francisco to enjoy the 4th of July. I often book with Choice Hotels and figured I would again search for a choice hotel. Well this place is far from the quality that I know Choice Hotel International expects. We almost got killed walking from the Bay Area Rapid Transit Station to the hotel. We get... More

Flee! This is the worst hotel that exists. The room smells toilets, carpet is disgusting, you can not even walk barefoot. In the neighborhood there are a lot of homeless people and offenders. We do not feel safe. I urge you not to take this hotel. I am currently in the hotel and I have not even spent the night,... More

So sorry to hear that our Inn did not meet your standards. All of your points were noted and we will address issues to the best of our ability. Our neighborhood is in transition and probably looks worse than it really is, as evidenced by the increasing number of people actually owning or renting in our immediate vicinity. Nonetheless, we...

Very nice staff. Great daily parking value. I was in and out. The rooms come with microwave and refrigerator. The location is perfect. Of my visits to San Francisco, the Rodeway Inn is one of my favorite choices. I highly recommend it because of the cleanliness and location.

Certainly adequate and my least expensive option. The hotel is definitely in a sketchy couple block area at the corner of Mission and 9th. I felt ok but would not bring my wife and kids. Two female colleagues also stayed at this hotel and were uncomfortable returning after dark. Rooms are adequate: clean towels and sheets and the bathroom area... More

We are sorry for not meeting your expectations. Hotel policy is to have doors open by 7am. On your departure date, more than likely there may have been a few minutes where the front desk personnel may have stepped outside or upstairs for some reason. We appreciate your input so that we can continue to improve the level of service... More

Friendly front desk staff and rooms recently updated. Older style property but effort has been made to update and maintain the property. Card access required to enter elevator and side doors which made me feel more secure. I appreciated the fact the hotel has recently gone nonsmoking. Parking is available for a fee. Complimentary coffee is available in the morning... More
