On 08/17/2015 we checked in at Americas Best Value Inn...we were in the area for business. As soon as we walked out of the elevator we could smell something very strong and it only got worse as we entered our room, the smell of urine was incredible nasty. Our room had no AC. It had two little windows and one... More

This hotel is next to an extremely loud bar where they crank up the music to 11 and drunks shout their conversations in the street. Also, my room had something malfunction and a loud compressor noise was coming from the wall. When I reported it after the first night they just kind of gave me a "well that's a bummer"... More

Not the most inspiring part of town but walkable to Market St & Union Sq. Was looking for cheap hotel and this was budget price. Seems like an older place that's had some renovation outside. Seems family run. All the staff were really friendly & helpful regarding the simple local stuff like where to get bus / tram tickets. Room... More

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.

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.
