Rock'n Roll atmosphere, good staff, rooms comfortable, nice beds. Excelent pool area, good location, next to subway station. Breakfast simple, could it be more sophisticated like the hotel and the restaurant.

Summer 2014 was the second year in a row that we stayed at the Phoenix Hotel in SF. And for a second time in a row, it was a fantastic stay with a vibrant scene. We've gotten such luck with the weather that we've been able to enjoy the outdoor pool in the middle of what is usually a chilly... More

If you are into cool places to stay this place is it. The staff go out of their way to make sure you have a grate time. There is a restaurant/bar on site. Will make sure to stay here anytime I'm in San Francisco.

This is a classic old motel with a heated swimming pool even in the winter. It is in the tenderloin in the midst of many homeless who are non intrusive and part of our human community. The staff at the hotel are extremely warm and friendly.... As are the other guests. The rooms are open to outside noises but the... More

I visit family and friends in the neighborhood about once a year. This time I stayed for 5 nights over the Christmas holidays because I needed to sleep in a decent bed with all the comforts. The Phoenix Motel lives up to its good reputation (clean, good beds, clever décor, quiet after 11 pm, and most important, gracious and accommodating... More

I'll echo the comments of many others here, the neighborhood is a bit rough, but I didn't feel the least bit uncomfortable, as most people are quite friendly. It's conveniently close to anything you want to do, but away from the tourism crush. The hotel staff are great. The rooms are motor-lodge but nicely done, and have a microwave and... More
