Affordable hotel in very expensive city. Room was big and clean. The twin beds were so big so can sleep 3 people each bed because they have policy kids stay free. Room was very basic (no fridge, no microwave, no electric kettle, etc) only beds, tv, AC and bathroom. You can have coffee and tea for free every morning in...

Family stayed here for 3 nights. It is located walking distance to union Square area although it is actually located in the neighbouring Tenderloin area which has traditionally been a lower socio economic district and it still shows. A lot of homelessness and drugs on the street although i think surrounding streets were worse than Geary Street. The hotel is...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Room spacious, tidy and clean. Bed okay. Unfortunately the water was only lukewarm in the morning when I wanted to take a shower. The neighborhood does not seem too safe. But if you don't plan to walk around at night and need a well priced, decent room down town, this Motel6 is a good option.

Stayed for 2 nights. Booked on booking.com and could only get smoking room when doing so but on checking in Susan was able to move things around and got us non smoking. Susan was very helpful and advised us where to go which was great. Hotel is not in the best area but the location is fine. It's 10 min...

the room was clean and big enough for two, we had a parking spot (which ain't guaranteed), it is central and a good place to start exploring, wi-fi worked on certain places in the room (and not fast either)

First and foremost, if you're concerned at how close this is to the Tenderloin, don't be. Yes there are homeless people in Frisco, and yes some ask for money. But they're not pushy, rude or intimidating. We had zero issues with the guys who have fallen on hard times. In fact we gave a couple of bucks to a sweet...

I didn't know much about SF when I booked this room, but it turned out wonderful! If you are going to visit the area, they have a bit of a homeless problem there (I had never seen people actually sleeping on the street before), but Motel 6 has done an excellent job of providing security for their guests while holding...

The hotel room itself was clean and quiet most of the day. At night things picked up a lot more people hit the streets and things can get noisy. But hey you are in downtown San Fran. Free parking and easy secure access to your hotel room was great. The only bad thing I experienced was a urine like smell...

“No frills! They do have blow dryers and irons at the desk if you ask. Bring toiletries, they only supply small bar soaps. Room was very clean and spacious. Our belongings were never bothered. Very friendly and helpful desk staff. Great choice for the adventurous!”
