I booked this hotel through an internet booking agent, paying for it in full then, to avil off the cheaper rate, with no cancellation or refund available.This I understood and agreed, no problems. On arrival to the hotel, the very young inexperienced receptionist advised me that she would have to swipe my credit card again to take an authorization, in... More

When we arrived at the hotel, the first thing I found out was that there was no guest toilet in the lobby. When we entered the room, it looked clean but the settee covering was torn and threadbare. I did not even want to sit on it until I was sure there were no bugs coming out of it. Then... More

I second the previous review... It cost us 300+ per night on average to stay here because everywhere else was booked out or more. A total rip off as its only a motel! But it was last minute & we can't complain. Room & breakfast is basic, facilities are good & clean (bed, shower, wifi, mini fridge, coffee maker, lamps,... More

I can't exactly say you get what you paid for, because for the $200+ I spent it was extremely basic. However, there were virtually no hotel rooms available under $400 on a Tuesday due to a big conference, so given those circumstances I can't complain. It was about a 10 minute walk from the Civic Center BART, and yes its... More

Booking: Superior Room like the hotel picture. :-( If you want to stay in a tiny motel room with a little bigger bath room, then this is the hotel for you! We booked on booking.com and it was saying check-in 02:00pm, we arrived 02:20pm. And a very rude young lady at the desk, told us to come back later. We... More

I spent 1 night in this hotel. The cost with taxes and everything added up to 200$ which were overall not worth what you get. Pros: -It's clean, furnishing had seen better times though -The staff is ok -No problems during the booking & check in / out -good location, close to downtown -TV, coffee machine, Microwave -good shower Cons:...

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.
