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

My daughter and I were put in a room that was kind of secluded with another room. The people in the other room were extremely noisy. At 4:30 a.m. after no sleep I finally called the front desk. They got quiet for about 1 1/2 hours and started all over again. When I checked out I complained to the front... More

I recently visited SFO, and booked this hotel only because I was looking for hotel offering free parking near Union Square. The hotel is well managed and the staff was very hospitable, Srikant the guy at the Front desk was very helpful. Had read enough about the quality of breakfast, but must say they are making efforts to improve. I... More

I recently stayed at the San Francisco Inn for a weekend getaway and I was pleasantly surprised! For a very reasonable cost in the heart of SOMA you really cant ask for more. The management was friendly, welcoming and competent. Wifi was always strong and fast. Free parking area seems pretty secure compared to street parking (huge bonus for this... More

First of all: the Hotel is infested with pigeons and this is a disgrace considering that that these animals bring so many diseases for humans. Plus, pigeons make a lot of noise during the night hours since they hang around near the room's doors. The Wi-fi in this Hotel is ridiculously slow: neverending losing times and constant dropping connection. On... More

After a long tedious driving from Las Vegas I was expecting to rest in a clean and safe room. As soon as We entered to the room we smelled a bad scent inside. The windows were kept open intentionally to mask the scent. There is no enough parking spaces and we had to park in the street which was totally... More

Their staff was friendly and the heater worked well in my room. It's in a good position in relation to a number of public transportation routes and they have a number of great maps in their lobby. The neighborhood might not be much to look at, and the inn could signpost their name better but it was a good stay.

Very nice little hotel near many main attractions. We had a view of the Golden Gate Bridge from our small balcony. It was small - but we were there to sleep and spend time exploring the city. Walking distance to Warf, cable cars, and other attractions.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
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.
