Best location, best front desk staff, newly renovated rooms, great price. Very safe. Near the best Vietnamese food. Public transit at your door. I will stay there again. Can walk to downtown. Near the shops and cafes on Polk.

As others have said, this neighborhood is pretty dirty and rough, and not the prettiest in SF. That being said, we stayed for two nights and walked around everywhere with no problems. Parking was free which was a huge benefit, and the room was clean. This was a bare bones, no frills place, but was convenient to many popular tourist... More

A group of us ,11 ,none under the age of 60 , stayed here late last year. It was so handy and safe and the people were nice too. A lovely breakfast was included. So close to all shops and bus and resturants

This hotel is located in the Little Vietnamese area which is close to the border of the Tenderloin district.. very seedy, very dirty area. The staff who checked me in were very rude and couldn't find my reservation. I saw a big spider in the bathroom and there were filthy blackened towels from dirt. I was too scared to sleep... More

Our stay at this Motel 6 was just fine. After experiencing a stressful situation of taxes, fees and deposits trying to book a room at Holiday Inn, I gave this Motel 6 a call and they graciously gave us a 10% discount after expressing our frustration about the Holiday Inn. No frills and extra charges, they got us in quickly... More

location is okay but to expensiv for the little not so clean rooms. sometimes you have to park your car in the seconde row behinde an other car at the house carpark, when this guy doesn t gave up the car keys at the receptionist, you can t drive away and you are blocked. thats a little annoying.

It is old, has strange smells, but it is clean, warm, staff was very friendly and is in an interesting part of town. There are several bars on the street and we had fun. We went to the Fillmore and were able to walk over and back at night with no issues (hills are present so beware). Overall would stay... More

In looking for relatively safe and inexpensive lodging near Union Square, based on reviews by Trip Advisor reviews, we chose this Motel 6 and are glad we did. It is about as basic as it can get, but clean and there are elevators to all of the floors. Would recommend this hotel if you don't plan to be in your... More

Room was as simple as expected, but the cleaning material smell inside was terrible. Free parking, if you need it. 15 minutes away from the Financial District. Do not expect breakfast or any other Service.

“No frills! They do have blow dryers and irons at the desk if you ask. Bring toiletries, they only supply small bar soaps. Room was very clean and spacious. Our belongings were never bothered. Very friendly and helpful desk staff. Great choice for the adventurous!”
