“This is a great place to stay. I would definitely stay here again.”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

We spent 3 nights here. Very nice and clean room and bathroom. We got the one with 2 beds because were traveling with the kid.
Pros: Good service, friendly staff, clean, fridge, free high speed wireless internet, free covered secure parking, no extra charge for kids, close to everything.
Cons: Small and thin pillows, a bit overpriced. Can't think of anything else.

I stayed here for 4 nights in August '10 and overall it was a good experience. I booked it specifically because it's supposedly located away from the Tenderloin district but discovered that this was not really the case when we arrived.The surrounding area (for a few blocks) is not the best in the world and I would not reccommend loitering around outside or being outside late at night.However, was happy with the motel itself.The room was bigger than expected, clean, had a tv and a mini-fridge (which was a god-send) and a clean bathroom.The bath doesn't have grippers on the tub though so it can be very slippy when showering.The staff were extremely nice and did everything to help us find buses or attractions and provided free maps.Bear in mind they do not have facilities to store your luggage after checkout. I would stay here again but if you're easily bothered by seeing addicts or homeless people around, then maybe stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Get off ground level and away from the deck area

My wife and I stayed at this motel for 5 nights during our holiday from the UK.On arrival at the motel we thought we had made a mistake by booking here as the building does not look very inviting from the street,however our room was large with good comfortable beds and a great shower,there was also a fridge in the room which was very useful.The location is very good, only 10 mins walk from Union Square.I would never hesitate to stay here again.Staff were friendly and helpfull

stayed here on our first night on holiday after 12 hour flight from london via frankfurt B it of a rough area quite scruffy. .girls on reception cant be faulted very pleasant, unlike hotel This hotel looks very down at heel the lift entrance is also quite creepy at night and the hallways were dirty and not at all welcoming the room smelt quite damp but it was quiet.and clean .husband went out to buy some food next morning and said there were quite a few ladies of the night hanging around .personally i didnt feel worried walking in the area nor did husband or 12 year old daughter nobody bothered us at all But we were usually back by sbout 8 or 9 at night. the cost of the room was ridiculous there are much better hotels for about the same price as we paid

Stayed at this hotel not long ago and must say every single negative review about this motel is absolutely true, however I dont let hotels define how my trip is going to be. The area is not too good but not far from where we wanted to be. We made the best of everything.. Yeah theres a lot of bums and druggies everywhere but talk to them, theyre not as bad as people make them seem. Anyway I had fun at my stay here. thats all.

Granted it was a spur of the moment trip and we needed a pet friendly hotel, you couldn't pay me to stay here again. Sketchy neighborhoods in major cities are really no big deal, as long as you are aware of your surroundings, so we thought, alright, why not? We won't be in the room except to sleep, anyways. So we booked a room for 3 nights. Room was very spacious and clean, included a mini fridge and you could open the windows. But by the second day, we had management tell us they messed up on booking and we had to switch rooms. This was veryyyyyyyy aggravating because they didn't even have the other room ready but yet they gave us a checkout time to be out of the first room, so we had to wait in the lobby with ALL of our stuff AND a dog. I was over our stay at this point. The night we were in the second room, we had a hooker pounding at our door and trying to bust in because apparently that's where she stayed the night before. REAL nice, huh? So much for the hotel security. After that, I didn't even understand why they gave us keys to activate the elevators. Whatever.

Oh let me not forget the really dirty hallways, scummy carpet, and hookers roaming the hallways. I will say this though, the young girls who work the front desk are VERY nice and helpful as they can possibly be. Give out great directions to anywhere in the entire city and explain the bus system.

Long story short, unless you're with a bunch of your friends, just out to see the city the ENTIRE time you're in San Francisco, don't stay here.

We drove 365 miles a couple of saturdays ago from a campground near Oregon to San Francisco and decided to stay at a Ritz 6 oops Motel 6 because they are always dog friendly places. Mostly european travelers who know the ropes. Everything was clean, much partying but our section was quiet and the room was huge as it is a 3 story building that has been converted to a Motel 6 like no other. We had already had dinner down at Scomas so we hunkered down for the night with the tv and cold drinks. Bed good, shower good...sheets clean and bug free It worked for me. Got up at 6 and took my dog for a walk down to Union Square with a stop along the way at Starbucks. Nobody hassled me for quarters until I came out of starbucks. It is the tenderloin until a block or so from Union Square. Martell and coffee at Lefty O'Doul's on the way back to Ritz 6 (can't go to SF without at least one at Lefty's) Breakfast next to motel at Moulin Rouge...see reviews..there are tons of them. Since Sears was sold it isnt the same. We headed out to Big Sur after breakfast so it was a quicky in SF this time. It was really an unplanned stop but it worked out just fine. Secure parking and elevator that is operated by your room key is a plus. Wonder if the Cartwright takes dogs...they were sold out so we were lucky.
