“Surprisingly good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Due to an unpleasant experience in the Monarch Hotel, we decided to check out and find another place. We passed by Motel 6 and they have a reasonable price of $150 per night for 2 double beds. The staff is friendly and even upgraded us to 2 big king size room for FREE as their 2 double beds is full. The room is clean and big. Nothing to complain with this price and good service.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012 via mobile

I stayed here during Bay 2 Breakers. The room was booked at the last minute, and I had some reservations about what to expect, especially being in the Tenderloin. I was thoroughly impressed. The room was very big, clean, and included a fridge. It wasn't fancy by any means, but for a fifth of what I would've paid at the W or aomething similar, it really wasn't bad. If you are unfamiliar with the city, you may be a little shocked by the location, but I didn't have any issues. For a place to crash in between running and partying for the weekend, this room exceeded my expectations.

Check in was fast, WAY OVER PRICED! 160 for a bed and 3 bars of soap. The towels had brown stains on them, the hall ways smelled of bleach and other chemicals. The manager was VERY rude! When the sun went down the homeless and prostitutes bombarded the lobby offering their services. My friend was pregnant and called down for another blanket the manager demanded that she came down and got one which she already tried and he gave her a towel instead. Someone ended up getting shot in front of hotel and stabbed at the bar next to the hotel. She sheet and bed felt DISGUSTING! I couldn't leave fast enough to go home and quarantine myself! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!!

walked in off the street so couldn't expect much
$130 for a bed but at least the parking was free - as was wifi
The hotel was draughty and cold - huge gaps around the door and not particularly clean.

Staff were lovely, really helpful - thank you

It is good as a motel 6 - it isn't good for $130 a night - not even in San Francisco

We stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days. During our stay, the place is good, staff are friendly and clean room. We did not book for a reservation, we just go there and get a room! It's affordable for a traveler like us who's always on a budget.

To be honest, I've never stayed in Downtown SF before. The area overall is dirty. I think the price for the hotel is high for what you get, but compaired to nicer places that cost $400 a night in the same area, i think it was pretty fair. They don't have a lot of things in the room that you may need (iron, blow dryer) but they do have them at the front desk. The bathrooms are dirty, and the shower curtains dont work well so water gets all over the floor. All in all for somewhere to stay to avoid high costs it would do in a pinch for a few days. There can also be a lot of noise at night.

We are Belgian Citizen (58 YO) and like to travel in the USA. For our Agust 2011 holidays this was our hotel choice for San Francisco. The Motel is ideally situated. You can easily visit San Francisco from here without need for a car. The drop on drop off coaches are nearby. The city shops too including Macys (delight for the wife). Do not expect a luxurious hotel but a nice, clean and spacious place to sleep.
