the location of this place could not be better! is in the center of everything but also easy access when you need to get out of onto main highways. I liked the people they treated me very nice, and the price is great since is so close to everything. It has parking which was great and everything that i needed.

This was my second stay in San Francisco Inn. I again chose it based on the location and price. It is a basic motel with few frills. The pluses are the small fridge and the wifi. The wifi was fine an improvement on my first stay. Everything has the feeling of being old and outdated but it is clean. The... More

Went for a concert @ ATT park. Short walk to the park and back. Ice machine was not working, check in time was inconvenient, and the homeless were loud at night, most being right below our window. Just a basic place to sleep.

The people at the front desk are really nice and the room was clean. Parking can be a challenge and one night I had to park on the street. There is no elevator, so you'll have to lug your bags up and down a couple of flights of stairs. My biggest problem was not with the hotel, but the construction... More

The Inn is safe, provided free parking and a place to flop for the night that was walking distance to most all points downtown without spending an arm and a leg. Don't expect Four Seasons and you won't be disappointed. Breakfast consists of vending machine type pastries and yogurt cups. There is a Starbucks just a few blocks away for... More

The rooms are pretty basic & there's no safe which is a big issue for people traveling. The breakfast served at reception to take back to your room was pretty basic but ok. The parking is tight in a big car but secure. This a side it's a great base to see the city, about 30 min walk from the... More

Perfect location, great rate, continental breakfast that you can take back to your room and 11 free park spaces. Make for a wonderful time, especially if on a budget. Considering the true spa deep tub, micro wave and large college style frig and its time to relax in San Francisco. Many restaurants, shops and nightlife within walking distance. We will... More

As we all know SF is a very expensive city. We booked, and cancelled various places after Reading reviews that made me second guess the hotels. San Francisco Inn sounded like it would work best for me, my husband, and 9 year old son. We reserved a king size bed for the three of us (two night stay). When we... More

The inn is an average motel that's typical in the US. The San Francisco Inn is one of the few places in the city that is very reasonably priced in an expensive city. The main attractions like the Wharf (overated), the Piers and the Golden Gate Bridge are all a short drive away, and what's more, within walking distance of... More

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.
