San Francisco Hotel Guest Comments

Maria Keller - Merritt
“What a cute place we found only has about 30 rooms. Super clean and the girl at the front counter is so friendly and helpful.

Great experience, Great value!

I recently stayed at the San Francisco Inn for a weekend getaway and I was pleasantly surprised! For a very reasonable cost in the heart of SOMA you really cant ask for more. The management was friendly, welcoming and competent. Wifi was always strong and fast. Free parking area seems pretty secure compared to street parking (huge bonus for this area if you have a car).Breakfast was a standard hotel "free breakfast" but was always stocked. I had a room on the 3rd floor and it was worth the extra flight of stairs! Great location to walk to shopping and sightseeing...Continue Reading

Perfect location, great rate, continental breakfast that you can take back to your room and 11 free park spaces. Make for a wonderful time, especially if on a budget. Considering the true spa deep tub, micro wave and large college style frig and its time to relax in San Francisco. Many restaurants, shops and nightlife within walking distance. We will...... continue reading

Several Thumbs Up for this Spot

I absolutely loved it here. This place was so, so, reasonable and very clean. We did check our beds because WHO DOESN'T - they were fine and in fact the beds were so comfortable. My only concern with this property is that when you come back a bit tipsy from pairing or what have you (wink-wink) those damn pigeons will scare the heck out of you. Lucky for me I was born and raised in San Francisco - so I'm all too familiar with PIGEONS! But still. Other than that - the staff here is SUPER amazing - so kind and attentive. I will be back to this spot...Continue Reading

Perfect while on a budget, SF Giants Game

It was just as advertised. Beds were comfortable. Free parking (first come, first serve) and free breakfast. Our own bathroom/shower and huge tub. Really enjoyed our stay. Walked to the Giants game from hotel. Room was clean and tub was perfect.

Excellent value for money

We stayed at the San Francisco Inn a week ago for 5 nights. Our review is reflective of the price we paid for the hotel. We scored a great deal on and were very impressed with the facilities and quality of services for the price. Prior to this hotel, we were staying in hostels for the same (or more) amount. We much preferred having our own private room with the in-room essentials such as a fridge, microwave, private bathroom, TV, etc. The room was average size, but perfect for what we needed. The free breakfast was an added bonus and definitely saved us a lot of money not having to eat at a cafe...Continue Reading

We would definitely come back.

I was not expecting much when I reserved the room for Super Bowl weekend. We arrived early 11:30 am. They checked us in immediately. We were thrilled after driving 6 hours it was a relief. There is limited parking but we were able to get a space every day we were there. The room was on the small size but it was very clean. It had a microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker with name brand coffee. An excellent supply of soaps, shampoo, conditioner and lotion.

Free Parking

We decided to check out this hotel for a weekend in the city. It's a nice location in the heart of SoMa's nightlife, and with free parking, we didn't have to worry about the car. The afternoon employee, Jennifer, was super friendly and welcoming, and the room was really cute - not huge, but perfect for a weekend away. Clean, free wifi, decent sized bathroom, and a fridge.

Things got a little dicey the next morning, however. After not sleeping great, I phoned the front desk to ask for more pillows and another blanket, and figured I'd get some extra towels as well...Continue Reading

Good for the price and area.

I stayed here for several nights in February, 2016. It was my third stay at the hotel, which has become my preferred stop for events at nearby SOMArts Cultural Center. The hotel is clean and relatively secure in a sketchy neighborhood. The staff is generally pleasant and makes an effort to accommodate...

A well kept secret.

Stayed for two nights. I didn't want to spend a lot, but wanted to be in downtown San Francisco. The Hilton it's not, but the room was clean with all the amenities I needed. Continental breakfast was okay - bowl of cereal a some yogurt and a cup of coffee and I was on my way! The manager greeted me and was very welcoming. That initial meeting made the difference for me.
No lounge, no restaurant, but a nice place to stay.

SB 50 and Metallica!

Considering how hectic it was during the weekend we are glad we chose this hotel! It was withing walking distance to Super Bowl City and AT&T park or a $10 Uber ride. The staff was pleasant and overall this place I would chose again if we were to go the Baseball stadium or Fisherman's Wharf. Be aware if your...

Great Location! Reasonable Online Rates!

This hotel is in a great location. It is about a 15 minute walk to Market Street, where there are loads of shops, restaurants and lots of great people watching! Make sure you catch the vintage "F" buses down to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. The hotel is also a couple blocks away from the worlds best cupcake bakery "Cups and Cakes" . You don't want to miss their cupcake happy hour! A Trader Joes is also nearby, so stock up on food and drink that you can put in your hotel room mini fridge and microwave. The hotel staff we met was very chatty, friendly and accommodating...Continue Reading

Great stay and reasonable price as well

I booked three rooms at four nights for my company & crew. We were spread out on two floors. I entered two of three rooms and found them both to be clean and up to date, with "No funny smells." It's San Francisco, so parking is always tight. Our company cars X2 had covered, on-site parking. Also had a large work truck that was too big to fit in covered parking. We had no trouble finding street parking right in front each evening after returning from the job. Parking is not metered after 6pm. Just remember to pick the side of the street that isn't having early morning street cleaning...Continue Reading

Great location - great value

We went end of January, a bit off-season, to San Francisco.
This hotel is absolutely great value for what you pay.
If you are OK with an middle size room, a bit older building, but well maintained,
then this is a good place for you. Very friendly and helpful staff, simple but OK breakfast,
just great for starting the day.

Free Parking!!!

The location is fabulous!Walking distance to the Wharf attractions
Bus stop nearby.

Nothing to complain !

We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to S.F.

Great place!

My husband and I loved this hotel which is close to everything in San Fran. Lovely friendly staff, simple healthy breakfast, very secure, parking under the rooms, small with fridge and microwave but very quaint and clean. We stayed 4 nights and would recommend to anyone who is on a budget and wants to be close to everything.

Room Tip: Ask to be towards the back if you like it a little quieter, traffic noise at the front.

Friendly,clean and safe

The rooms where big, clean and the complex is very secure. The staff where amazing and so helpful. Close to everything and you can walk to most attractions in the SF city. For what your paying its definitely value for money! Highly Recommend.

Stay at San Francisco Inn

Clean room, soft beds, walking distance from Slim's. Shower, toilet and sink worked great. My experience was great for a Wednesday night. There is some construction going on behind the hotel, but I imagine that is only on weekday mornings. Didn't bother me personally, but...

Cheap Stay with Free Parking

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 in reception, mostly this consists of individually wrapped Danish pastries etc and there is juice cartons in the fridge but there are cheap places to go to breakfast nearby and I would advise going to these... continue reading

Worked for our trip

The SF Inn room we stayed in was relatively small compared to a similarly priced motel, but we dealt with it easily. We frankly spent little time in the room because we were tourist-ing all day and a lot of the night. We didn't use a car until the last day, but the parking lot was well secured. The rooms were cleaned each day... continue reading

Parking and convenient location

The motel is just a few minutes past the Bay Bridge, and is pretty easy to find. They have free - but limited - parking. First come, first serve, but metered street parking is also available as long as you attend to prohibited days/times, or when meter enforcement is "on". We parked on the street, and had no trouble. In another city, this might be about a $40 motel - but not in SF! Everything worked in our room, including fridge and... continue reading

So convenient to son living in soma!!

Loved this little hotel. Very clean. Such nice front desk guy and cleaning ladies. Would definitely go back. So convenient to son living in L Seven apartments around the corner! Being from a small town, I was a little "scared" of the big city. Lol. But not here, wonderful place. Spent 6 nights, will do so again for sure:)

You get what you pay for......and its fairly good

It is a clean, properly furnished basic room. Shower/Toilet/TV/Bed/AC unit. It is NOT a hotel with valet service, Eames furniture, 600 thread count sheets, and 42" LCD TV.

Free parking! If you search around and look at parking rates in SF it goes from $35-$75(valet) per day! So if you rent a car it hurts twice as much everywhere else. This was the biggest + in my book, SF is great in the city but what if you want to go to Legion Hall? Napa Valley? Shopping outlet? you need a car... continue reading

Review on room cancellation policy

While we were unable to stay at San Francisco Inn, their leniency on cancellation policy earns 5 stars, in my book. Our surgical procedure at UCSF had a last minute postponement. The inn staff took this into account, and contrary to their 48 hour cancellation policy, never did charge us.

“Friendly, clean, and decent room. It's nice and close to downtown, and if you can park under the building also a bit more secure for your car. Owners run the place and take good care of the place. Good value for the money. There will be street people outside, but they didn't bother us.

“We were traveling with a toddler so had a few things on our list "must have" list: microwave, fridge, not $$$. Compared to other places in SF, it was definitely cheaper. Microwave and fridge worked well. Fan unit worked well.
For breakfast, there were packaged danish type food, cereal, yogurt, apples and oranges, juice, milk, coffee and tea. We found it sufficient for us.
Location was not bad. Trader Joe's is nearby as well as a few restaurants. There's also a costco nearby and across the street from them is a street food/food truck space. Location was a few blocks from Market street where many trams and read more here.

“Overall a good experience. Room was clean, hotel had free parking, and the staff was helpful. Shower and bathroom was very decent, bed was adequate. You come here to sleep and take a shower, not hang around. Rooms had microwave and fridge, if needed. Breakfast options were orange juice, coffee, packaged Danish, yogurt, packaged oatmeal and cereal with milk. Enough to get the day started. Close to the main bus lines and easy access to the major freeways.
