I've stayed here twice and each time has been great! Perfect location! Parking is limited but I've been lucky to get one each time. Room was comfortable and clean. I would enjoy staying again. The breakfast is simple and I enjoyed the yogurts and fresh coffee! Grab a justice to go and walk city and enjoy!

I have nothing bad to say about our stay at the San Francisco Inn. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location was ideal.. Parking is conveniently located on the ground floor below the rooms. Our room overlooked the street with newer windows providing excellent light and sound proofing.... We will be staying here again.

This hotel was relatively clean and decent for a hotel in San Francisco where most of the hotels in the city are super tiny. We had our own bathroom and even a fridge/microwave in the room. The biggest plus was free (limited) parking in a lot under the rooms.. The neighborhood was a bit sketchy but we felt safe and... More

We stayed in this hotel based on a recommendation. The good points are the price (compared to other hotels in the area) and the convenient location. You are within easy walking distance of Market St. and AT&T Park, so it makes good sense if you want to stay in this area on a budget. Drivers will also be happy to... More

This place is at a great location and the best thing - free parking (on a first come first served basis). Rooms are tiny but clean. If you are looking for a good location for low price, this is the perfect place. Just one problem though - there are no signs to spot this place.

We stayed her two days for a 4 day concert.The staff was very accommodating and helped out whenever they could.The room itself was clean and very big for the price.Unfortunately the view was a new building being built next door,but did offer a nice view of the lights if the city once it was night.The area is decent and there...

Just there for a night to see Pistachio (the band) play at The Utah Inn. Very quick check in and good value for San Francisco. Small inadequate parking area. Room was clean but décor, etc. was old. Less than desirable neighborhood.

The quality of rooms and service are declining yet management has substantially raised room rates. Go figure. I have used this motel a number of times in the past so I have a basis for comparison. Room rates increased about $30-$80 per night. What I found in my recent stay: 1) Shower water was not hot; 2) The flushing mechanism... More

Stayed here for one night to attend a Giants game. We took Lyft to the game and walked home from it (35 min walk). Nothing really around the hotel as far as bars or restaurants. Loved the free parking and we felt safe inside the hotel. I wish we had an extra blanket on the bed. We were provided sheets... 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.
