For the cost and location, this hotel is hard to beat. Way better than staying in the Tenderloin area and similar price. Walking distance to almost everything and plenty of bus routes. Breakfast is a snack and not what I call breakfast but you get what you pay for.

Thank you for stay with us in Super 8. Our location is perfect for tourists that want a good price and a safe area. A lot of other hotels are very expensive and don't offer as much as we do. We hope to see you again!

Copperopolis, California

Clean and efficient. Breakfast room is small so get there early before the crowd. Location great. Parking is difficult - especially if you have an oversized vehicle. I had to park down the street and the garage charged me double for my 1500 pickup ($70 after taxes). Commute into the city if possible - don't drive.

We are happy that you stayed with us during your business trip. We agree, San Francisco is a hard place to find parking. If you have a car, we do have a valet service for less than $70 for a pick up truck. Come stay at our hotel for your next trip!

Nice hotel, woth a good location. I wont say perfect location, but very close to union square. Well, lot of homeless people loitering around infront of the hotel. But that is not the hotel's fault as there are lots and lots of homeless people in SF. But walk right out of the hotel main door and its good. For the...

We apologize for the annoyance of the elevator and the homeless people in San Francisco. We will surely improve the elevator. Thank you for staying with us. We hope you come back to visit after the changes we will make.

It was perfect for our trip to San Francisco: very close to Union Square, clean and nice. If you want to walk around and to visit places, without spending a lot, this is the place where you want to stay!

The Super 8 hotel is a pretty decent hotel in a good area at a 2 minutes walk from Union Square. Even if the exterior of the building may seem (and in fact is) quite old, rooms were clean but a little bit small. The bathroom was clean as well, you were provided with soap, towels and a hairdryer. The...

This is an absolutely no-frills hotel in the heart of San Francisco. It is, however, clean, safe, and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly. I needed to saty for a week on business, and was entirely satisfied.

My friend and I booked this hotel in advanced. We looked through a lot of the pictures and thought it was ok. The hotel Lobby is run down not inviting. I think the host was nice but he must hate his job or something because we weren't even greeted with a grin. We went up the elevator that shook and...

We are so sorry about the inconveniences. Vik was trying to help you out so you would not need to spend more money on another hotel. San Francisco is expensive as it is. We will make sure to check all the non-smoking rooms in case they smell like ash trays. Thank you for your comment. We can mend our problems...
