We were looking for an affordable place to stay in San Francisco, knowing we would spend very little time time in the room(just to sleep). They offered free parking (no small thing in DT San Fran). They offered coffee & danish in the morning. We just grabbed a cab to Fillmore St to go out for the evening. Our room... More

I've stayed here twice on late-booked, low-cost business trips. The first was booked by my office, the second time I paid myself because I knew it was "okay" and everything else was much more expensive. It's not the nicest area and the hotel itself is pretty shabby. The room was clean, everything worked, and the staff were pleasant, but the... More

We stayed here for four nights in late September 2014. The staff, a lady and a gentleman, whom we met at check-in and the night before check-out were friendly and helpful. The room service provided fresh bed linen and towels (almost) every day. Air condition and WiFi did work, so did the coffee maker for which enough pads were provided.... More

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

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.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
