I had a last minute, one night work trip to SF and found that most hotels were booked or outrageously priced. I took a chance on Hotwire and got the Civic Center Motor Inn.
If you are visiting SF, the location is not ideal. The neighborhood is safe but doesn't look it. When I checked in just after 6, the office was locked and I had to register through a small window while standing in the driveway. What kind of safety message is this property sending when they can't let people into their office at 6? The location is not particularly convenient to transportation or sightseeing. It is a long, not pleasant, 3 and half blocks to Market.
Now for the good news. My room was clean and perfectly comfortable. This is a motel property with the standard configuration and rooms that open right to the outside. The street that it is on is quite busy and noisy but I slept fine. The free breakfast is motel decent. The staff were friendly but I didn't make any demands on them.
