I had a good stay at the SF Inn. The room was good for the price. The location of the property is great, conveniently placed from the Downtown/Financial district and close to the Mission district. Parking is free, though not reserved. Free Wifi worked well except on the first day of my stay when they were 100% occupied. Breakfast options...

The hotel is very old. I thought at first, it started out as something else, but then, "it is San Francisco". I didn't choose the hotel. A friend there for a conference did because it was in their budget. At first, I was a little put off, but quickly got over it. We stayed one week. At over 160 a...

During Photonics West time hotel price goes up in San Francisco. For those who visit P/W and do not want to spend too much on hotel stay, San Francisco Inn will be a good choice. It locates on 9th Street; 1.1 miles away from the Convention Center, 20 minutes walk, along the Howard St. and parking free. Small size room;...

The room size was decent. There is no lift so please ensure you can carry your luggage up to two stairs. The room allotted to us was good (road facing). Not much noise though. Good view. Parking is decent and complimentary (not usual in this part of town). The receptionist was kind and helped us with the Map and directions....

When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly man who checked us into our room. We asked him about restaurants near by and he directed us up the street towards Market. He warned us about possible run ins with the homeless and drunk people. The room was clean, facility was clean and everyone we ran into was friendly. Location...

Situated four blocks off Market Street, which is the main street that runs through San Francisco. Everything is within walking distance, if you are fairly fit. The reception is a small area, but has everything it needs. Check-in was smooth.The staff were informative and came up with suggestions of places to visit. With car parking on the ground floor, with...

Its definitely not the Hilton but its a cheap affordable place to stay in San Francisco that has the bonus of free parking. It is very dated and the rooms are in definite need of a spruce up but it does for a brief stay in the city. There is a free breakfast which is served on a 2ft bench...

Stayed here because we had a family emergency in SF. Do not expect anything good. Bed felt old, room looked old, bathroom alright. It did the job but would not stay again. Spend the extra money and get something better!

the location of this place could not be better! is in the center of everything but also easy access when you need to get out of onto main highways. I liked the people they treated me very nice, and the price is great since is so close to everything. It has parking which was great and everything that i needed.

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.
