I just left this room after only 10 minutes. The first thing I grabbed was a pistol to walk us to the room. I took pictures of the crackheads that I will upload. They refused to refund. I'm without a place to sleep, but it's better than the crack den. Please please don't stay here.

The hotel is a two story u-shaped with parking in front and back. The first night we were in a second floor room close to a busy street, The traffic noise was very bad. Due to the traffic noise and a very pool quality bed, we were awake most of the night. The next morning we asked to move rooms... More

I was looking for a cheap place to stay within walking distance of Moscone where I wouldn't get stabbed. The Civic Center Motor Inn delivered on that. Rooms are reasonably large, comfortable, and priced. It's a fifteen minute walk to Moscone, and I don't feel uncomfortable doing it at night. (Although I'm a pretty big guy, it definitely isn't the... More

Check in seemed semi friendly... however that is where it ended. upon further inspection of the room they assigned us, noted that the SMOKE FREE ROOM reaked of smoke, so... More

during my stays in San Francisco, I have been several times to the CCMI. So far, it was ok-ish, if your expectations are not too high and you are aware about the area. This time it was disappointing, even for low expectations. On the positive side, parking is free, but that's about it. The "breakfast buffet" is coffee and juice,... More

Yes, it's in an industrial area, and not many touristy things around. But the rooms are comfortable and well-stocked with coffee/fridge/micro and across the street is Costco, Trader Joe's and a mall. Across from one gay bar, and next to another. The breakfast is way above average. The staff are friendly and helpful. The parking is gated, and safe. Upscale... More

This hotel has made my life so much easier the last couple weeks! I've been here about a week and a half, and the only issue I've had was with the VENDING MACHINE!

I had a last minute, one night work trip to SF and found that most hotels were booked or outrageously priced. I took a chance on Hotwire and got the Civic Center Motor Inn. If you are visiting SF, the location is not ideal. The neighborhood is safe but doesn't look it. When I checked in just after 6, the... More
