we stayed for two nights while in san fran. I chose this place as it was on the BART line and close walking distance to the tourist areas/cable car lines. I did read about homelss people but it was still very unnerving. We had to go out in pairs just to get water from the Walgreens a block down, even... More

Dear asiansensation3, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are glad you found our rooms clean and our staff friendly. We agree with you that San Francisco has a serious homelessness issue, but unfortunately this is a city widespread situation and can be a small side effect of our central location. We apologize that... More

In a word, Shushma. The front desk woman is OUTSTANDING. Her service, and consideration for your needs is above and beyond. the inn is ok value, it's just on the outskirts of the touristy areas, and in a somewhat shady area, but safe. i felt safe, but it is a bit sketchy. i'm not typically scared of homeless people, and...

Stay away from this place. I stayed 1 night and it ended up costing me $740. I paid $20 to have my car parked in a private carport, and when I woke up my car was TRASHED. My window was shattered, and hundreds of dollars worth of equipment was stolen. The innkeeper managers did not help me in any way,... More

We would like to apologize for the unfortunate situation that occurred. We are sorry for your losses. Unfortunately, leaving a vehicle in a parking lot in any metropolitan area contains a level of risk regardless of where you park it. We are sorry this experience tainted your view of our property and negatively affected your stay with us. More

This hotel is very clean, relaxing and safe despite the low cost in compare to the other hotel with the same quality. The nice and very respectful receptionist, the very kind Indian lady in addition to the other staff make the hotel a very nice place for me as a girl to stay.

Whilst the value was great the location is very poor. Staff were courteous but it seemed they just wanted paying with little effort. I had little choice as there was a convention and everywhere seemed full. The room was ok if you are a smoker, I'm not and it stank of smoke the decor could do with refreshing but despite... More

Let me start of with the positive: very friendly manager/staff, great wifi service, clean beds, rooms and DISH network on TV. Negative: rough neighborhood, $20 parking per night, urine smelling parking lot, loud homeless crowd, medical marijuana shop across the street, vagrants walking around all night. I would not feel safe letting my wife or girlfriend walk around this neighborhood.... More

When other hotels in that area were soaring around 600 - 800$ a night, I wanted something under 200$ to stay without caring much about the star rating and I found this place. The beds were comfy, the room was clean and quiet. I went in with a low expectation and it fit well into what I expected - a... More

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.

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.
