Anaheim, California
Reviewed 4 February 2014

We needed accommodations near civic center and this one fit the bill. The place is tastefully and artfully decorated with each room having its own historical name. The room was quiet and clean, the staff very helpful, and there was on-site parking which was additionally beneficial. We've stayed here before and were not disappointed the second time around. The neighborhood...

Pros: Clean! Comfortable! Quiet! (I think they were full, but for the first 3 days I only heard 1 guest room door once). All the staff I met were very friendly and helpful. Spacious room (executive king w/ fireplace). Great croissants in the boxed breakfasts. I got a great deal & amazing value! 1.5 blocks from BART. Caffe Moda (end...

The hotel itself is cute and nicely decorated. The room is very spacious and got a nice victorian feel to it. I don't have any issues with hotel itself. But the location is bad. It's convenient to metros but NOT safe to walk around. I couldn't even go out to eat dinner. Will never stay there or near there again.

Reviewed 13 January 2014

This is an older property, but seems well maintained and clean. Room decor and the hotel itself is interesting and not the same old, same old. Location is great for doing business in downtown SF. A short walk to metro, restaurants, and shopping - although the local neighborhood can be a bit scary at night.

At first glance it doesn't look all that impressive. When you find out it is a Best Western you understand. Not to say there is anything wrong with Best Westerns but it isn't the Fairmont or Marriott Marquis. But you aren't paying their ridiculous prices either. (The Carriage Inn is less than half the Marriott) The rooms were lovely -...

Reviewed 25 October 2013

This hotel was better than I'd expected after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. It was absurdly expensive, but I understand this is the norm for hotels in SanFran. We paid over $400 total for one night (a Saturday). No room is worth that much, IMO. The look of the hotel is sort of an aged-elegance style. I really enjoyed the...

Our stay was great! The staff were super friendly, and the hotel was very safe and clean. The neighbourhood wasn't ideal, but we would stay here again for sure! If the hotel was in a different location it would be perfect!

I have stayed at the Carriage Inn many times. It is perfectly located to walk to Union Square or mass transit systems to get you where you might want to go. It is also close to freeways and offers parking (for a nominal fee by SF standards). Being small is their advantage. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms...

I really enjoyed my stay in the Carriage Inn. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was large with a big picture window.

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.
