I stayed three nights and by the third night i had bites all up my ankles, legs and waist.. Atleast i had my prescription cream that I purchased after the last hotel had given me bedbug bites. Win some lose some.

Room was a non smoking but was smelling so much of smoke it was hard to breathe. Not my ideal place to sleep in it was uncomfortable. It has coffee facilities, fridge and breakfast which is cereals, waffles and juice. Not really to my taste.

The neighborhood is bad and you will not feel comfortable to leave the hotel in the evening. The sheets were old and had some holes ( maybe caused by cigar) so you can wonder yourself about the cleanness of the hotel. Has free parking inside the hotel.

This isn't a fancy hotel and when you arrive you might be dismayed by the exterior and the reception area, however the rooms themselves are well appointed and clean and for the price totally acceptable. The free breakfast is an added bonus.

We arrived in the evening, and had planned the stay two months before. I had a legitimate MasterCard, the same one I had reserved the room with,. It had $1,800 credit on it, but they would not take it because the bank logo was not on the card. I even showed them my bill, with the exact same numbers that... More

I had a wonderful experience due to the circumstances that I was in and Ruth was so helpful in booking a room for me at the cheapest (affordable) rate possible. I would most definitely recommend to come here again. But I would like it if they have updated their TVs and furniture in general, it would be nice if my... More

Hotel room clean, appliances fine but the neighborhood very bad. We didn't want to leave the room after 8pm. Wifi didn't work either, although we got the password. Breakfast was not great as well. Overall good money for one night stay but not as a tourist.

Located in a dubious neighborhood. The room next to mine was used by a hooker and the door would slam - hard - every hour or so throughout the night waking me up. The price I paid and the $ I saved by staying here was definitely NOT worth it.

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.
