Very well located, walking distance from mostly all the SFO downtown area. Old building, but good underground parking lot. Simple lobby, no place to seat Rooms ok, no view at all, negative point: bathroom, a bit small and old, but nice 1/2 bathroom in the entrance. Hvac/heater is good No hIr dryer, no safe. Elevatirs are old but ok. I...

the room was clean and big enough for two, we had a parking spot (which ain't guaranteed), it is central and a good place to start exploring, wi-fi worked on certain places in the room (and not fast either)

First and foremost, if you're concerned at how close this is to the Tenderloin, don't be. Yes there are homeless people in Frisco, and yes some ask for money. But they're not pushy, rude or intimidating. We had zero issues with the guys who have fallen on hard times. In fact we gave a couple of bucks to a sweet...

I didn't know much about SF when I booked this room, but it turned out wonderful! If you are going to visit the area, they have a bit of a homeless problem there (I had never seen people actually sleeping on the street before), but Motel 6 has done an excellent job of providing security for their guests while holding...

The hotel room itself was clean and quiet most of the day. At night things picked up a lot more people hit the streets and things can get noisy. But hey you are in downtown San Fran. Free parking and easy secure access to your hotel room was great. The only bad thing I experienced was a urine like smell...

Comfortable hotel. Big rooms, 2 beds and we asked for a small single bed as we had 3 kids. All was accomodated in one room (family of 5). Safe even though the neigbourhood is a bit dodgy. Lots of homeless people and beggars. Good option for a budget in peak season downtown, if you don't mind the area south of...

Older Motel 6, clean however a little less well maintained compared to other locations. Rooms a good. Price is fairly low compared to similar downtown locations, maybe due to the the Tenderloin area being more rough than charming.

Planned a visit to San Francisco for the first time but surprisingly the most stressful part about the trip is choosing a hotel! I searched for about a month, everything was either too high or so bad (according to reviews). I stumbled upon this Motel 6 as it was the closest to most of the areas we will be visiting....

My son and I went to San Francisco for his friends wedding. I shopped around and found the Motel 6 to be the most reasonable and come to find out they do not charge for parking to where other hotels charge at least $50.00 a night. They may not be in the best area of town, right next to the...

Great location! Walking distance to just about everything. Clean room/bathroom...comfortable beds (Thanks for the extra pillows!) Staff super friendly and helpful! Provided us a map and sent us on our way!! Another A+ is the free, onsite parking! Made our trip MUCH easier! Would definitely stay here again!

“No frills! They do have blow dryers and irons at the desk if you ask. Bring toiletries, they only supply small bar soaps. Room was very clean and spacious. Our belongings were never bothered. Very friendly and helpful desk staff. Great choice for the adventurous!”
