Other than being surrounded by a sketchy, but non harmful neighbourhood, it is a pretty cool hotel. Retro interior and non-offensive themed rooms, hotel, rooms, bathrooms are very clean. Extremely friendly and accommodating service!.

I have never felt so pampered by the hotel staff at the Carriage Inn. Extremely courteous, helpful and pleasant. The room was in good condition with a personal touch, and named the old American personalities, actors and celebrities. The breakfast was not so fun though, a cardboard box holding a croissant, a banana, a juice and a yogurt (with gelatin...

San Francisco in summer is not the cheapest place on earth....far far from it, but we weren't prepared to spend $500 a night on a bed so The Carriage Inn popped up on our radar. The only two things I was worried about from these reviews was the location and the noise. The place is well located at the south...

Enjoyed my stay at the carriage and the price was good for the cleanliness/ decor/ and size of the room. This hotel would be a definite 5 of 5 if it were located in a little better/ more lively place. Not really within good walking/ stumbling distance to any good bars and pretty far from pier/ castro/ union square/ powell....

Coming from Europe, US 'boutique' hotels always seem a little hit-and-miss… The Carriage seems to be one of the better located mid-price hotels, with about a five minute walk to the main strip of Market Ave and maybe 15-20 minutes walk to the central shopping/ restaurants’ area. The hotel is in SOMA (South of Market) neighbourhood, which is apparently trendifying...

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.
