“Decent hotel”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The hotel was not too bad. The location is fairly good as it is close to Market Street where you can catch busses and trains to everywhere. The area was ok with a Trader Joe's market also nearby. The room had a fridge and microwave.

The room was quiet and everything functioned. It was mostly clean. The only bad thing was a pullout sofa. The sofa was filthy and we did not dare sitting down on it. Once folded out into a bed it was ok.

The pool is tiny but clean.

Breakfast was ok for the type of Motel it is. Waffles, Bagels, Cereal, juice and coffee. Get there before 8. Every morning just after 8, the place was loaded with people.

Room Tip: Book a room in the back of the property away from the street

If you aren't used to spending money, you soon will be in San Francisco. The Civic Center Motor Inn was a nice price for our overnight without taking money out of the food and fun budget. Combined with free parking, our stay at $200 for two people was a real bargain. The hot breakfast was a pleasant surprise. The room could have been quieter, but I did choose the first floor. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom clean and the stay was very comfortable.

Room Tip: Climb the stairs and stay on the second floor. Then take off those shoes and be kind to your downst...

Stayed here five nights. The managers and desk staff took excellent care of us, very helpful and accommodating. Room was clean and comfortable. The immediate neighborhood is kind of sketchy, but we had no problems. Very convenient to Castro and Mission districts as well as downtown.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in back to be father away from street noise.

The staff is always exceptionally Friendly and the motel is inexpensive and close to several South of Market Gay Bars and Dance Clubs. We drive into San Francisco from the North Bay area and enjoy the convenience of location near places where we can have a few drinks and afterwards not need to worry about driving...The rooms are clean, and they have a free breakfast room run by a friendly person .....They has a swimming pool and free parking inside the boundaries of the Motel.
So summary is: an average, inexpensive motel, with a very friendly Staff!!!

It's a motel and it's not in the nice part of town, we weren't expecting much but were in a bind for a last minute room on Saturday night of PRIDE weekend. We were pleasantly surprised! Free parking, too.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the back, quieter.

This motel is clean and quiet. Internet was spotty, at best. I was unable to work from here due to internet signal dropping. This is a good motel to spend the night at, but if you need to work online, you'll want to look elsewhere.

Car parking next to your room door (drive-in hotel - I should have known).
Loud traffic - the whole night (drive-in hotel - I should have known).
Loud guests - the whole night - o.k. if you like hearing what others do in their bed.
Bad smell in the room (aircondition or hidden humidity ?).
Toilet doesn't flush - but easy to fix if you are a craftsman.
located in an area in SF that residents try to avoid after sunset.
My local business partners did not let me walk there alone - but I did not experience own threads.

Room Tip: chose another hotel
