Super 8 San Francisco/Union Square Area
Ranked #165 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Reviewed December 10, 2013

This hotel is located within walking distance from bart station, a lot of shops and big shopping mall (macy and westfield). Room is clean with big bathroom. Their staff are helpful and friendly. The only negative thing i can think of is that they have a really weird lift that refused to close on several occasion. And the pan handlers situation are not as bad as some have said (maybe it's cold outside when i checked in on late november)

This hotel was in a great location! Walking distance to all the shops in Union square and Bart. The hotel was clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Such a great price for all the perks of being in the heart of downtown. I definitely recommend staying here!

Just come back from 2 week holiday spent 4 nights in this hotel. While it is a old hotel the bed was clean & rooms where cleaned everyday. The front desk staff where very helpful & friendly when we asked for help. I would recommend this hotel for its location not far from Bart station & all shops & bars most excellant stay

This hotel was the opposite of most hotels that focus on the lobby and the exterior. In the Super 8 Union Square I felt like if you got past the homeless people on the street that were fighting over garbage just outside the hotel, the old and tiny lobby, the smallest and scariest elevator ever, and the smelly halls you were fine once you got to the room. The room was actually nicely appointed and my bathroom was huge. The internet worked okay in the room even though I was a bit confused by the numerous Super 8 Wi-Fi options. Overall I thought for the $100 a night rate I paid for a hotel in San Fran was a deal. This is definitely better than staying at most other budget friendly hotels in San Francisco. I do recommend this hotel to other budget friendly but non-bougie travelers.

I liked it overall. It is located close to Powell station which is good for airport (BART) and the cable car station is here too. They offer free wifi in a proper quality. Rooms have fridge, coffee maker and full cable tv for free. I will recommend this place for my friends and for sure this is the first place to check if I am again in SanFrancisco
Breakfast is good that they have, but I missed vegetables, cheese and meat - maybe because my European habits.
So I liked it much:)
