We stayed one night on our family road trip. I was a little leery of this place after reading the trip advisor reviews but couldn't find another room for the same amount of money. It jut so happened to be Pride weekend so most of the double rooms were already taken. We are SUPER picky and this room was great!...

The gentleman that checked me in was excellent; so very cordial and helpful and I am thankful for his service. The price was reasonable $140 + tax. But I checked their prices for another date and they skyrocketed up way too much. It is obvious that the SF hotels and motels are colluding to uniformly drive up prices and that...

I was looking for something economical and decent and this was it. Nothing fancy but the room was cozy and they served free breakfast. It was also in a spot where it was easy to travel where I needed to. It was less than a 30 minute drive to the Golden Gate Bridge and other areas such as the Pier,...

comfortable bed and nice shower, the noise will wakes you up early morning. the location is close to almost every where, it wasn't the best neighborhood but close to the market street and the civic station to the BART.

Room was a non smoking but was smelling so much of smoke it was hard to breathe. Not my ideal place to sleep in it was uncomfortable. It has coffee facilities, fridge and breakfast which is cereals, waffles and juice. Not really to my taste.

I have to say that I am so upset , I have bedbug bites from your hotel . If I can give it zero stars I would . Never again I will stay or recommend this hotel while I'm in SF. I guess it's just because it's a cheap runned down motel but I didn't know ya would have bedbugs...

The neighborhood is bad and you will not feel comfortable to leave the hotel in the evening. The sheets were old and had some holes ( maybe caused by cigar) so you can wonder yourself about the cleanness of the hotel. Has free parking inside the hotel.

This isn't a fancy hotel and when you arrive you might be dismayed by the exterior and the reception area, however the rooms themselves are well appointed and clean and for the price totally acceptable. The free breakfast is an added bonus.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
