The Civic Center Motor Inn is a great location if you want to be near the bars and such on Harrison and Folsom (Lone Star, Stud, Eagle, etc.) but this is a slightly renovated "vintage" motor inn in a tight spot. Rooms are small but clean, and bathroom has been nicely renovated from original. AC, heat and WiFi did not... More

Stayed two noisy nights after booking this room through Priceline Express Deals. Disappointed that Priceline steered me to this noisy motel in SOMA. The door frame and windows let all the outside noise from the street traffic and nearby construction in causing two sleepless nights. The only plus was the room size and cleanliness for the price in S.F. but... More

Booked this hotel because it was near to Hertz where we wanted to pick up the rental and because the local tour we booked provided a free pick-up from here. It is a decent hotel, with breakfast provided. Rooms and bathrooms were all clean. The only complain we have is that the Wifi connection was rather weak and we could... More

The hotel was not too bad. The location is fairly good as it is close to Market Street where you can catch busses and trains to everywhere. The area was ok with a Trader Joe's market also nearby. The room had a fridge and microwave. The room was quiet and everything functioned. It was mostly clean. The only bad thing... More

If you aren't used to spending money, you soon will be in San Francisco. The Civic Center Motor Inn was a nice price for our overnight without taking money out of the food and fun budget. Combined with free parking, our stay at $200 for two people was a real bargain. The hot breakfast was a pleasant surprise. The room... More

Stayed here five nights. The managers and desk staff took excellent care of us, very helpful and accommodating. Room was clean and comfortable. The immediate neighborhood is kind of sketchy, but we had no problems. Very convenient to Castro and Mission districts as well as downtown.

The staff is always exceptionally Friendly and the motel is inexpensive and close to several South of Market Gay Bars and Dance Clubs. We drive into San Francisco from the North Bay area and enjoy the convenience of location near places where we can have a few drinks and afterwards not need to worry about driving...The rooms are clean, and...

It's a motel and it's not in the nice part of town, we weren't expecting much but were in a bind for a last minute room on Saturday night of PRIDE weekend. We were pleasantly surprised! Free parking, too.

This motel is clean and quiet. Internet was spotty, at best. I was unable to work from here due to internet signal dropping. This is a good motel to spend the night at, but if you need to work online, you'll want to look elsewhere.
