We were in SF for a few days and wanted to spend as little money as possible, so we chose Civic Center Inn. The area is shady and you'll definitely want to wear earplugs during the night because it tends to get noisy. I stayed in the third floor, at the back of the building, and it was much calmer...

I've stayed here many times over the years and understand that the motel is in the tenderloin district of San Francisco. There are homeless wandering around at all hours, no help for that, there are prostitutes and people with drug issues wandering around. That being said, this is San Francisco, it's a big city, you have to expect that if...

We stayed for 54 dollar. We had enough car space. It's walking distance from restaurants. The wifi and tv are not very good and don't go to the subway. It's terrible service. The thai on the left from the subway is amazing for low prices.
