A great place to stay and they also work to make your stay as comfortable as possible! A great value as they seem to set the prices low enough to make it affordable and keep the prices down. Lots of parking with no problems with theft or that sort of thing. I 've persoanlly stayed there for over 25 years...

I got exactly what I expected from a Best Western, i got a AAA rate of 61 dollars (with tax), can't beat that with free parking to boot. The location is not so great , staff was friendly. Room is a typical motel style but it was clean. If you are looking for a cheap place this is your place.

We picked this hotel for location and price. The outside does look a little....interesting, but it is what we expected. The price was great, included parking, and all we needed was a place to sleep. However, there was not one friendly staff member there. Not only not-friendly, they were down right rude! They wouldn't order us a cab, never smiled,...

I was on business in San Francisco last month and needed a hotel for a few nights. Needed to be clean, inexpensive, and have parking. A friend of mine referred me to the Best Western Civic Center. I called the hotel and spoke to a very nice gentleman named "Jay" he was helpful in securing a reservation for me in...

This place looks nothing like the photo hosted on this website. When we pulled up we thought that maybe it was a mistake and then we looked at the address and this was in deed the place we booked. There were more than enough undesirable people hanging out in front if that was not enought to scare us, we checked...

The hotel was under construction, which I really dont see how they can fix this place unless they tore it down and started over. The bathroom was nice but the food area was gross, Osha would have shut them down. It was only one night but I should have spent the extra 20 bucks and found a better place. It...

August 23, 2009 I recently spent four nights at the Best Western Civic Center/364 9th St/San Francisco, CA/94103. The experience would have been laughable if it hadn't been so expensive. It rivaled the best of Alfred Hitchcock's film noire genre. When my taxi arrived, I thought I had given the driver the wrong address. The venue was drowning in construction,...

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.
