We booked for a week but left after 1 night. Probably my own fault I've never been to San Francisco before and didn't do enough research but this place is not for the faint hearted we certainly didn't feel safe, especially after the receptionist advised us not to leave our luggage in our locked car in the hotels private carpark...

We stayed one night on our family road trip. I was a little leery of this place after reading the trip advisor reviews but couldn't find another room for the same amount of money. It jut so happened to be Pride weekend so most of the double rooms were already taken. We are SUPER picky and this room was great!... More

The gentleman that checked me in was excellent; so very cordial and helpful and I am thankful for his service. The price was reasonable $140 + tax. But I checked their prices for another date and they skyrocketed up way too much. It is obvious that the SF hotels and motels are colluding to uniformly drive up prices and that... More

I was looking for something economical and decent and this was it. Nothing fancy but the room was cozy and they served free breakfast. It was also in a spot where it was easy to travel where I needed to. It was less than a 30 minute drive to the Golden Gate Bridge and other areas such as the Pier,... More

Room was a non smoking but was smelling so much of smoke it was hard to breathe. Not my ideal place to sleep in it was uncomfortable. It has coffee facilities, fridge and breakfast which is cereals, waffles and juice. Not really to my taste.

I have to say that I am so upset , I have bedbug bites from your hotel . If I can give it zero stars I would . Never again I will stay or recommend this hotel while I'm in SF. I guess it's just because it's a cheap runned down motel but I didn't know ya would have bedbugs... More

The neighborhood is bad and you will not feel comfortable to leave the hotel in the evening. The sheets were old and had some holes ( maybe caused by cigar) so you can wonder yourself about the cleanness of the hotel. Has free parking inside the hotel.

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.
