Made reservations via telephone, came to SF for a club venue concert had a great stay! Excellent customer service, very helpful and considerate! I used my club card and slept in late because they have late-check-out and our room was discounted! Wonderful stay, thank you Americas Best Value Inn & Suites-SOMA for being ontop!

They lied about prices, listing $134.96/night with taxes & fees, listed $30 for oversize valet parking on their website, but when we got there they charged an extra $15 for the room and $35 for the parking, the room was a normal hotel room, older, creaky floor, smelled of men's cologne, but the real treat was the blood spatter on...

Best room is #400. Top floor, end of the hall and only one neighbor to the left. No rooms on the other side of the hall. Clean, quiet where I was, most of the clerks were friendly and helpful with exception of the 2 females. I needed to be close to my job without spending a ton of money so... More

We booked this hotel on short notice mainly based on some reviews that said it was a good value for the money...but it really wasn't. Perhaps if you are traveling alone and don't plan to be there much and don't have a vehicle it would be adequate. The rooms are tiny, mildew in shower, floors are incredibly squeaky and you... More

Wish we were told they had no parking. We were on a schedule and so parking situation was not ideal. I tried my hardest to stay quiet as the front counter girl was argumentative I felt. Customer service could be better. Breakfast was just a muffin. But we would stay here again - we liked it otherwise.

Stayed at this hotel for Folsom street fair in September. Easy check-in. Friendly helpful staff. Good security and crowd control. Room size is average for San Francisco. Rooms are clean. If you need a hotel that is in a great location near to the nightlife. This is the place.

At $53+tax, I wasn't expecting much but this room was great. OK, it's not luxurious, but it has everything you would expect, and I had a comfortable night's sleep. I was genuinely surprised to see the room had everything you would expect to see in a hotel two or three times the price. And the bathroom was much much better... More

This hotel is nothing like the pictures! After changing rooms several times we finally got a room that didn't have holes in the walls and cracked windows. The view on the street is very scary... the bathroom had a ton of hair in it and old towels from previous guests hanging behind the door. Please pay a little more and... More

This place is a shack. Lots of homeless in the area. No parking on site. They dare you to either park on Folsom ave or pay $30 for valet. On Folsom your chances of your car being broken into is well above average. Their valet is not available after 11pm so they tell you to go park at a lot... More

1) No A/C 2) floors and ceilings are made of thin and old wood so the second you or someone below you takes a step, the floor creaks, so you can hear people above you going to the toilet at 3 in the morning. 3) $30 per day parking 4) no breakfast, even though it was advertised as a motel... More
