Days Inn San Francisco Downtown/Civic Center Area
Ranked #80 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Reviewed 9 July 2014

A musty, older motel with 23 parking spaces located in a close-in trendy, leafy neighborhood. Security-type windows prevent a decent outside air flow so you have to rely on the cooling system for adjusted temperature. The room is somewhat compact but there was a microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, and an iron. No closet, just a rack with some hangers. There was a chest of drawers on top of which there was the TV. Bath area included a combo shower with tub. But the toilet lacked enough flush power and just about overflowed twice. And the housekeeper walked in on me once without knocking. The motel offers a starter breakfast in a room off of the office that doesn't include more than a few tables. But the surrounding neighborhood has wonderful shops and eateries and, if you stay here, you can literally walk to your opera or symphony seats in 5 minutes. It's served by the 21 bus which can take you downtown as well as west toward Golden Gate Park. The motel is 4 stories and served by one rickety elevator. A bit scary but I never got stuck.

During a busy weekend, this hotel was the best offer around. The senior discount helped too. Limited but free parking makes it an obvious choice for those with cars. It's a little off the beaten path but in a great and little known neighborhood behind the opera and symphony. The mini refrigerator and microwave mean a lot to me. A walk in closet and spacious accommodations for San Francisco. I look forward to coming back here.

This hotel suited us well! The room was clean and large with a small kitchen, the basic free breakfast, free parking (very small and on a first come, first serve basis) and wi-fi, and a location that was close to restaurants and public transportation. The beds were comfortable. The service was very friendly and helpful and the rate for San Francisco was good. The hotel is outdated inside (new carpeting?) and could use a good face-lift outside as well. But, if you are just looking for a good night's sleep so that you can go out and do "that tourist thing" again, this could be the place for you!

Nice big rooms, and a handy location to things. Clean! Lots of restaurants close by, has the standard free breakfast, but the best in room coffee I've ever had,! Beds were firm, non pillow tops. In room fridge which is always good. Only bad thing was no anti slip of any kind in the shower, little dangerous. Limited parkin

The place is old on the outside and out of date in the inside. For the price was what was looking for. Free parking and less than a mile from most tourist locations. If all you need is a place to sleep, I recommend it

I stayed here for 3 days. I found Rohit on reception very helpful throughout my whole stay and made my stay in san Francisco more enjoyable. The motel from the outside doesnt look the best but the room was refurbed and clean.

The hotel was a close walk to the cable car station (during tourist season - do this early. I had to wait 1.5 hrs in line), down town, union square and the F bus stop. It was only a $12 cab fare to fisherman whaft. Around the motel there was restaurants, shops, takeaway places and convenient stores.

The tours I had booked from home also picked up from the hotel too.

If I came back to san Francisco, I would stay here again.
