They have seen better days

I have stayed at this hotel under various owners and managers for nearly 20 years. The hotel had begun to "fray around the edges," and over the 5 years I didn't stay (due to my room being burgled), I heard it was falling apart, from friends who stayed there. The hotel has been remodeled and modernized--which is good. However, the current staff who manage reservations and checkin are not helping to make the experience a good one. Checking a reservation, the person abruptly hung-up on me. Another, for this stay, answers to my questions were vague and ambivalent. When I arrived, the room I asked for was not available, and I consented to stay for 1 night instead of 3--and I was initially refused a refund--which would have amounted to over $400. Customer service is not a high priority at this now over-priced establishment.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For a fast but good lunch or dinner-on-the-go, walk around the corner onto Folsom and west two blocks to V-Cafe. I eat there frequently. They never disappoint.

Convenient and affordable (for San Francisco)

The staff was very friendly and answered any questions that I had. Check in process was easy, the room was clean comfortable at was not too hard not to soft. I biggest complaint is actually the television. The remote control only changes the channels volume and power must be done directly on the television. To further that there were no alternative inputs for adding an external device like a DVD player or computer. It's a small grievance and most people wouldn't care but it created some frustration.

Noisy location but clean and well-kept

This is an old property (and shows it). The rooms are small but very clean. SOMA location is really noisy, but was convenient for our purposes. Decent breakfast included and no extra charge for parking (unusual in SF). The beds weren't the greatest; they could use new ones.

Good location and free parking

The Civic Center Motor Lodge provides a convenient location and free parking in a city where these attributes are important. The prices are a bit high for the quality of the rooms and services provided. The hot water in the shower is iffy....comes and goes at will. Otherwise, the rooms are clean and efficient.
