This motel is on the edge of theTenderloin district, a not-so-salubrious area of San Francisco (whose city council encourages homeless people to make the city their own, so watch where you walk on the sidewalks, which they use as their toilet), but it's not bad. It's a block from the main street of Van Ness, on which you can catch... More

We stayed here when we were travelling around California. The staff were friendly and very informative, they told us of no go areas that even they avoid and gave us the acceptable areas circled on a map. The rooms were spacious, immaculate and had a large shower/vanity area. The area seemed at first a little rough but we walked around... More

I stayed one night to avoid driving the 50 miles home late at night after a special concert I was going to at Yoshi's on Fillmore and Eddy. I have a handicap that prevents me from walking long distances, so I called the night before to ask for handicapped parking, and had already requested a quiet room close to elevator.... More

The hotel is not in the best part of town, there are quite a few homeless and crazies about in the area, but the really helpful lady behind the reception gave us a few area to avoid and which roads to take best to get to Union Square. It's also close to Van Ness so you get get around the... More

I stayed 4 nights and it was a pleasure. First of all staff member was really nice. She gave me a lot of very useful information about the city and she was really helpful during all my stay. Rooms are very large, clean and comfortable. We booked a room here because the parking was free (very rare in San Francisco)... More

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in mid November. I have seen people raise there eyebrows when they learn this hotel is situated in Tenderloin area (which is considered a bit shady area). I too was reluctant to stay there but post my stay I experienced that it was not that badly located. Means this hotel on eddy... More

I have just come back from a pleasant stay at the Red Coach. We had driven up from LA for a Raiders game and wanted to spend a few nights in San Fran before game day. For what you pay, the Red Coach is a great hotel, especially considering parking is included (we made the same trip last year and... More

First, we read the good reviews here, and found this to be the best rate $109 with FREE parking downtown SF in this price range. (Sketchy neighborhood, however.) Our room was very clean, large, with a comfortable bed. A little worn around the edges, but clean and well-maintained. Then I left behind a prized possession. Jane, at the front desk,... More

Ok, I said to myself that I would be positive about this hotel, and I will try to hold that thought. Positives first then. The staff member when arriving was very friendly and welcoming. She appeared knowledgeable about SF and could answer any questions we had, providing maps, tips and opinions. The room itself, well, the whole place was a... More
