Brea, California
Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

I frequent Best Western Plus hotels whenever I travel. The staff has always been friendly and price compared to amenities received has always been fair. The Americania does not fall into that category. When I visited the staff was unfriendly and made little to no effort to remedy their lack of organization. Not returning to this hotel when I visit...

Excellent location, close to business and shopping. Good and friendly staff. Like the idea that breakfast is not included as I do not eat breakfast, only coffee, which was good and available. Will stay at this Best Western next time.

Unlike union sq, there are not many hotels near Civic Center. This BW is a good option for mid-price, comfortable stay. Room option with 2 queens and a pull out means you can sleep a full family or a bunch of friends in one affordable room. A small cafe with brunch options right on the first floor, but subway is...

This is a very nicely decorated hotel and front counter person, Victoria was very nice and helpful with giving my friends and I suggestions on places to see while in town.

I look forward to staying at this location again when the pool is in operation. The decor is adorable, very retro, has a wonderfully 50s vibe throughout the facility. Really also appreciate the staff's commitment to being as green as possible when it comes to services such as house keeping.

Do not come here anyway you risk buttons all over the body, and you risk infesting your own home with BED BUGS when you return. I stayed at this hotel in January for a business trip to San Francisco, and I came across these bed bugs in my bed. I realized it only the next day when I saw pimples...

The building has been around for a few decades and is in constant need of renovation. Funky 1960s Mad Men decor but still functional. The good: location, prices. The less good: a bit run down and some of the rooms can be noisy.

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.
