This place was super clean. Also, it was close to down town and most tourist attractions. Most importantly, this place had very good price for travelers who are try to save money on motel.

First of all I am so sorry to read the other reviews because I have stayed at this hotel once a week for the last three months and it has always been wounderful to me.

This place looks nothing like the photo hosted on this website. When we pulled up we thought that maybe it was a mistake and then we looked at the address and this was in deed the place we booked. There were more than enough undesirable people hanging out in front if that was not enought to scare us, we checked...

The hotel was under construction, which I really dont see how they can fix this place unless they tore it down and started over. The bathroom was nice but the food area was gross, Osha would have shut them down. It was only one night but I should have spent the extra 20 bucks and found a better place. It...

August 23, 2009 I recently spent four nights at the Best Western Civic Center/364 9th St/San Francisco, CA/94103. The experience would have been laughable if it hadn't been so expensive. It rivaled the best of Alfred Hitchcock's film noire genre. When my taxi arrived, I thought I had given the driver the wrong address. The venue was drowning in construction,...

I would say the bathroom was the only good part, it was clean. The room was small and dark, it smelled like cigarettes in the room even though we reserved a no smoking room. The front desk was rude and the parking is absolutely horrible. For the price I could have staid somewhere better in San Fran. The air conditioning...

Picked this hotel because of cheap rate and free parking. I was a little worried by some reviews but in the end I can only praise the management (and myself for picking this hotel). The car park perfectly fine, accessed at the back via an underpass. The swimming pool is impeccable and super clean (and very small). THe room was...

I chose this motel mainly because the parking is free while most hotels in SF charge $25-$40 per night for parking. It is about 1.5-2 miles from Union Square where you can shop, eat and get on tour buses etc. As of July 2009 it's still under major construction outside. It's on a VERY NOISY street in dirty neighborhood full...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood 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 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.
