Need I say more than the title. I made a reservation through their reservation site for one night at $107. Unfortunately, I couldn't be there for check-in or check-out. I guess they figured they could get away with cheating my wife since she wasn't paying attention and they charged us $119 for the room. This is a comparative between the...

The only reason I am giving America's Best Value SoMA two stars is because the lady at the front desk when we checked in was very, very nice. No, that's really the only reason. The bar downstairs honestly didn't bother us at all - it was quite soothing white noise to sleep to! But other than that... I stayed here...

We (group of 6 Irish folk) are just back from a 3 week tour of California, and all agree that this is one of the best accommodations we had the good luck to stay in. Considering the price we paid, the location was excellent and the rooms were of ample size. However, the hidden gem here is the friendly staff...

the service was really bad! the people there are not friendly at all. we actually needed to extend our staying and got a bad service. the "breakfast" (if you can call it like that) was only a coffe and a cupcake. the really bad part - our room was right over a bar so during the weekend it was very...

Just got back from a 3-night stay at the Americas Best Value Inn & Suites. Overall the hotel is average. The largest downside in my opinion is the location. SoMa is a diverse neighborhood in transition. There is a mix of warehouses and auto repair shops combined with art spaces, loft apartments, bars and restaurants. The area immediately around the...

We booked on line and even the taxi driver did not know this hotel. Rooms vey, very poor quality, bath room substandard and the bed, what can I say, as we could not sleep because of the bed bugs, got bitten all over, both my wife and I. The street noise was going all night, shouting from the homeless that...

The America's Best Value Inn is a FINE budget option for travelers to San Francisco. Nicely located near plenty of restaurants, bars and nightclubs in the convenient SOMA neighborhood near Folsom and 7th, the hotel provides a nice clean basic room, many with kitchenette consisting of microwave, fridge and sink, for half the price of many competing hotels. The breakfast...

Let's begin to say that San Francisco is a very, very expensive city when it comes to hotel rooms.....So whatever I paid for this hotel room, was a true bargain considering the crazy hotel prices in this city. The place looks nicer outside than it does inside. It has a very small lobby, and a true Youth Hostel feeling to...

I was staying here on business and although I spent little time in my room it was clean comfortable and cheap (Great shower pressure!).

I stayed here for 1 night. My room was comfortable and clean, especially considering the price. Bathroom was clean and nice. Reception and service lovely and relaxed.

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.
