Clean room, soft beds, walking distance from Slim's. Shower, toilet and sink worked great. My experience was great for a Wednesday night. There is some construction going on behind the hotel, but I imagine that is only on weekday mornings. Didn't bother me personally, but light sleepers may wanna request a room towards the front of the hotel if that... More

I stayed here Nov 4 - Nov 8 2015 with 2 friends and for the price and location it was everything we needed. We spent most of the day out, but at night we slept well and our car was secure in the parking lot downstairs. By around 10 pm the lot gets full. There are about 10 spots I... More

We stayed one night for an event in the city. We had a terrific room, top floor corner facing the street. The room didn't share walls with any other room so there was no neighbor noise whatsoever. The room was just great. It had two big beds and everything else you'd need. Clean, roomy and the coffee machine was terrific... More

We chose this hotel purely for proximity to an event. Among it's strengths the room was clean, WiFi functioned well & included covered secure parking. The hotel staff were friendly & helpful. It used to be a Vagabond Inn. It is a small hotel desperately needing a remodeling. Our room had the strong odor of air freshener so strong that... More

My husband and I stayed in San Francisco for one night and stayed in this hotel. I picked this hotel mainly because of the price and the other reviews I read about the hotel. The hotel looks like an older building but the rooms are nicer on the inside. The room was nice and very clean. The TV wasn't up... More

Average hotel in a good location within walking distance of the Moscone Center. Overall the room was comfortable and everything was in working order. My main problem with my stay here was the pigeons. There were a significant number of pigeons that made a lot of noise during the night and early hours of the morning which on more than... More

The room looked nice and clean and of a good size. The bed is uncomfortable and the bottom sheets do move quite a bit overnight. Maybe I was restless with the hard pillows and all the noise. The noise is horrid and we kept checking if the windows were closed because the sounds were so clear. The neighbourhood is a... More

Very nice people, tried their best with everything we asked - they even treated us with "honey moon package" - decorated flowers on the bed and a bubbly beverage. The room was clean, although there was a weird smell. We got used to it. We were a bit worried about the parking, but there is nothing to be worried about,... More

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.
