no Wi-Fi in rooms at all. The channel was jammed all the time.
The price for a sf hotel is great and we only went to enjoy the sf Eagle and Lone Star so the location was perfect. It was only about an $8 Lyft ride to Castro.
Omfg! The Wi-Fi is the worst! It never appeared on 2 iPhones and an Android but appeared on two PCs. It connected only once in 6 days and only if I went to the pool area. I called many times to the front desk to ask if it was working or if there was a username/password I should be using and was always told it was open to all and working. I think the staff was tired of hearing complaints and just kept saying everything was ok. Just assume there is no Wi-Fi or create a hotspot from a 4g connection.
Location looks like a ghetto place...worst hotel ever! and if you arrive after 8pm there is no way you can check in and be able to enter the hotel since after 8.00pm it is locked!!! this should be stated after the name of the hotel!!!
The Civic Center Motor Inn is a great hotel if you are looking for a clean, safe place to sleep and get ready while in San Fran. If you are going for a hotel with all the bells and whistles this is not the place for you. Close to many attractions and right or close to many bus stop. It's the perfect place to stay if you want to see more of the city than your hotel room. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable.
The down side is the WIFI was shaky at best could really only get a good connection while sitting by the pool. The coffee both in the room and at breakfast was poor but there is a Starbucks just 2 blocks up. Beware of the check in time through no fault of their own but instead with Booking.com check in is at 3pm not 2pm as stated on booking. Though the staff was nice enough to find a room for my Mom and I at two instead of having us wait.
Breakfast OK - but finished by 9 a.m.
Location, noise, cramped room, unreliable wi-fi, awful shower; otherwise, no complaints!
wi-fi didn't work the guy at the reception desk couch was too dirty
The front desk girl not too friendly but cleaning and kitchen girl are very very nice and helpful:)
too much noise we can hear people talking from other rooms:(
the receptionist was really helpful.
the fact that the swimming pool was actually in the car park, there was no loo door, the area was bereft of restaurants etc, the room was very small and nothing like the photo.
- The price is good - The room is clean - The staff is friendly
- Location - you're right on the street, with absolutely no view (just a wall) - It's noisy, you need earplugs - You don't feel you're in a hotel. It feels like you just rented out a bed in an old cheap building. Anyone passing by can walk in front of your room. - The light in the room is too dim. - The WiFi is terrible. - There aren't enough power outlets. - The breakfast is very limited. - The bed and pillows are just okay. - You kinda feel uncomfortable in general being there.
location of the motel
Their router had problems in DHCP and my devices couldn't receive IPs, so most of the time I didnt have internet. When I asked them to contact their technical support, it took about 2 days out of my 3 day stay at the hotel, for the problem to be solved.
Overall it was of good value. Easy to get to SFO.
The area, the seedy people around the area, homeless soup kicthen's and filthy streets and sidewalks. the feeling of unsafe, Not something you would expect to see when you pay for a night stay in SF. There is not much in the way of food or fun in walking distance, if you dare to walk around especially after dark.
This motel is nice for its price point and has been well maintained.
The wifi was spotty at best and frequently did not work.
Walkable to Moscone and Civic Center.
I felt incredibly unsafe in this location. Every night, I came "home" to police at someone's door. Final tipping point was a lunatic screaming about cutting someone's head off. I went to check out immediately to be told I would be charged that night because I didn't give a 48 hour's notice. Are you kidding me???
Breakfast was very poor and wifi didn't work.
towels were nice size, good water pressure, clean rooms
heavy traffic around hotel Would be mice to have flat screen tv
Parking close to room
Paying for parking after I was told it was free in hotel listing
- nice bed - spacious room -clean, big bathroom
- "free wi-fi" meant no wi-fi, the network was visible but it was impossible to get any signal -staff was really non responsive - we asked about wi-fi and didnt get any attention, the same about loundry coins -not very safe neighbourhood
Really helpful staff, comfortable room wit he suite, breakfast included. Near a metro station.
At first not sure about location, but near metro and good restaurant nearby.
Location great staff excellent.
Construction that shook the room before 8am every day we were there.
WiFI non-existent in our room. Handicapped parking was occupied by non-handicapped. Construction on street was disturbing. Breakfast unappealing-watery juice, no fruit/yogurt.
It's close to centre. Also shower was great
Room was very dark, even with lights on!
The waffles at breakfast
The beds unconfortable, old fornitures, too old structure, too expensive for what they give you.
