Great Location, 3 Streets away from the market place . Good rooms for the rates provided . Breakfast is not Breakfast. It's just muffins and coffee. So please carry home food . Great Frontdesk Staff. Decent Property but can do better

I checked into this hotel for one night as a less expensive alternative to where my friends were staying. It is TERRIBLE. - refrigerator in the room is so loud that I had to unplug it. - the hotel is on top of some bar or night club. I could hear the music until VERY late. - the sheets, blankets...

A simple hotel, but had everything I needed. Location, staff, wifi, TV, iron, ensuite. On a simple search, it was about 1/2 the price of nearby hotels. Only let down by poor breakfast, though there was a nice cafe on a nearby corner.

The first room they assigned me looked like someone had just recently left and the cleaning staff hadn't cleaned the room yet. The bed was unmade and someone's key card slip with the same room number was lying on the bed. I went back down to report this and they apologized and gave me "the nicest room in the hotel"....

The Americas Best Value Inn and Suites - SOMA is located within walking distance of BART Civic Center station. It has clean rooms and is relatively inexpensive compared to other options nearby. There are quite a few eating options nearby.

It was clean and overall a great value. Front desk was always helpful. Breakfast was only some pastries, but that's pretty standard for a small place like this. The room was simple but comfortable. I slept great. TV was big and had dish network programming.

This was an eye opener. They in this small infra structure could offer double double bed per room. Then they offered two double bedded room for us two friends. At same price. They only offer simple breakfast. But that's enough with that price that cosyness we didn't mind. Their washroom was terrific at that price. I could see how America... More

This hotel is for the budget traveller. Hotel location are decent, mid-range neighbourhood – but a good night sleep during my two nights there. The place is south side of the City Centre, some decent “watering holes” in the neighbourhood, but nothing that is out of the ordinary. Hotel is “Old Building Style” – floor squeak and make sounds, and... More

Our room was infested with bedbugs of different developmental stages; clearly, this indicates that these pests have been in the room for awhile now and had time to reproduce. Please make sure the hotel has taken care of the problem. This really ruined our trip to San Francisco.

This was in a great location, and it was cheaper than other hotels. Our room was clean. The floor squeaked and I felt sorry for the people below us. The person at the desk was very friendly and just great. She suggested walkable restaurants and we loved her suggestions. We could have had sweet rolls in the morning for free... More

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.
