        • I liked the location, golden Gate Bridge amazing and com on the internet after checking into the Civic Motor Inn on 9th street 1hour earlier. The hotel is clean, the rate for SFO is very reasonable and the staff is knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. Beautiful bathroom and separate bedroom, free breakfast is rare to find and was nice, all in all a good choice and I got to see some of the 'real' San Francisco.

          The area was bad and dirty, the bus was often busy. Some room were old.

          Overpriced for location and the hotel was expensive. My tv remote control was not difficult to use was frustrating.

          Room facing the main road is not advisable and the arrangement of objects in the bathroom is not very nice.

        • The large car rentals on o'farrell street are within walking distance, location is a few gross blocks away from great and the friendly staff is the best thing the hotel has going for. Beds are very comfortable and breakfast is good and the roof top is amazing.

          The room is clean, quiet and the rooftop deck has expansive views and is quite lovely, also the bathroom is not clean at all.

          The location was awful and my bed sheets were not even changed during the week.

          The location is seriously bad and the front desk are incredibly unhelpful.
