An affordable room, the bed was comfy, good water pressure from the shower and the front desk were really nice people and helpful. Only Cons are the parking and the bums that chill outside but honestly you're in San Francisco you should be out having a good time not stuck in your room.

First, the room itself was clean and tidy. But, the walls are bare thin and you'll hear constant traffic, crazy people bickering outside, and fellow guests whatever they happen to be doing. The neighborhood is super sketchy. Homeless people were digging through the trash within the motel courtyard and there was no security guards in sight.

I took a single room here and stayed for 4 days to attend a conference in SFO. I recommend this place for the good price, cleanliness and customer service. The manager (Sushma) was good and helpful.

I have stayed at the SOMA Park Inn several times now and have had a good experience every time. The staff, especially the front desk, are very friendly and helpful . The rooms are nicely decorated and have all the amenities and extras one might need. I especially enjoy the satellite tv.

Location was the only pro for Soma Park In. First of all it was a motel not a hotel! Very similar to the ones that you see on movies where the fugitive parks his car in the middle of complex and hides from people or cleans his wounds.. A lot of homeless people were loitering in front of the motel...

SoMa has a cool 1960s "motor lodge" feel to it, with colorful diamonds on the facade and parking below the rooms. As noted by other reviewers, the proximity to Market St, Civic Center BART station & City Hall is convenient. All-Star Donuts across the street. The woman at Reception was charming & helpful. The room was clean, with a 1-cup...

As a location (in theory) there could not be a better one in san francisco. Problem is people not really recomandable living in the street all around. Im not afraid of anything but after 19,00 i would not recomend walking there around alone. Place is ok, good wifi , prices not so cheap

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
