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.

Car parking next to your room door (drive-in hotel - I should have known). Loud traffic - the whole night (drive-in hotel - I should have known). Loud guests - the whole night - o.k. if you like hearing what others do in their bed. Bad smell in the room (aircondition or hidden humidity ?). Toilet doesn't flush - but... More

To get to downtown San Francisco from the CCMI, you walk up 9th street and take a right onto Market Street. On Market Street you WILL encounter a lot of homeless people, crack heads and people with mental health issues, some of who are having psychcotic episode (talking/shouting to invisible people). You may find this unnerving if you are not... More

Myself and my partner stayed there in May 2014 as part of a trip around California. We booked it last minute. The 1st thing I noticed is that the area that it is located in is terrible. Lots of empty shops and a large amount of homeless people walking around. I am a police officer in a rough area in... More

The hotel is situated in a bad area of SF, even though it looks pretty close to the center. I was afraid to stay there and all the people in the hotel looked that they will stalk you :) The rooms were ok and clean but for the same money one can find better accomodation. I woudn't go there again... More
