Basic hotel in good location for union square etc but on edge of rough area - lot of homeless/mental health problems/drug dealing (saw it on corner outside hotel) However this homeless situation is apparent wherever we went so do not be put off from outside. Clean basic accommodation. Helpful staff. Wifi. Food places nearby. Good value. Free parking. Would go... More

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... More

Elevatirs are old but ok. I... More

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... More

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
