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... More

Comfortable hotel. Big rooms, 2 beds and we asked for a small single bed as we had 3 kids. All was accomodated in one room (family of 5). Safe even though the neigbourhood is a bit dodgy. Lots of homeless people and beggars. Good option for a budget in peak season downtown, if you don't mind the area south of... More

Older Motel 6, clean however a little less well maintained compared to other locations. Rooms a good. Price is fairly low compared to similar downtown locations, maybe due to the the Tenderloin area being more rough than charming.

Planned a visit to San Francisco for the first time but surprisingly the most stressful part about the trip is choosing a hotel! I searched for about a month, everything was either too high or so bad (according to reviews). I stumbled upon this Motel 6 as it was the closest to most of the areas we will be visiting.... More

My son and I went to San Francisco for his friends wedding. I shopped around and found the Motel 6 to be the most reasonable and come to find out they do not charge for parking to where other hotels charge at least $50.00 a night. They may not be in the best area of town, right next to the... More

This hotel is clean and the rooms are recently renovated. This Motel 6 is a good value in San Francisco. It has comfortable beds, the shower has good pressure and it is clean. It can be a little loud, but you are in the city, so no big deal. Parking is free, which is a $60 or so savings right... More

Being this was our first trip to SF we really did not know what to expect as our friends who accompanied us made all the reservations. Driving to the Motel we were getting a little uneasy as there was a lot of homeless/inebriated people in the streets. We had nothing to worry about as they were not around the Motel.... More
