Recent guest reviews

Finally found a place that we can stay at every time we visit San Fran. Family was really happy with the hotel. Very nice, clean, and modern decor. The rooms were large and free parking! The front desk was nice and helpful.

The hotel was renewed and the style is amazing for our visit to San Francisco. Really close to the metro and bus stop, well located in Civic Center and breakfast was enough for start the day. I recommend this hotel!!!

My bathroom and bed had ants! Nothing like waking up to ants on your body. Also the toilet paper roll had a governor so you could only get a little off at a time. Not a very pleasant place. The toilet paper was annoying but the ant bites were unacceptable!

this room with two double beds was clean, modern and quite larger than I might expect for a room in this price range. I am happy with my stay and would stay there again in the future.

El hotel esta bien ubicado pero la Gerente fue grosera con nuestros amigos. La cama bien comoda, todo bien limpio. El cuarto donde dan el desayuno es pequeño pero ofrece panes, quesos, mermeladas, yogurt y cafe. La cama ocupa casi toda la habitación pero como es para dormir no se requiere mas espacio.

Worst experience! Place is loud and dirty. and staff are rude!

The room was very clean and centrally located. We did not like the noise made by the heater, hard to sleep and could not turn it off as it was cold.

I have stayed here once before, but it was several years ago. The neighborhood seemed a little better than the last time I was here, although I didn't feel unsafe the first time. The hotel itself was a welcome surprise compared to my last visit in San Francisco at a different property. When I was in San Francisco last year, I left exhausted as I couldn't get a decent night sleep the entire time I was there. There were huge fights outside the hotel every night and even one fight just down the hall where one of the individuals broke a window because she had gotten locked out of the room by the other individual. Thankfully, none of that this time. Despite being in a pretty central location with a fair amount of traffic at all hours of the day and night, the room was quiet and didn't really hear much road noise. The other guests were also quiet. I did hear some moving around in the morning from upstairs, but nothing too bad. One slight criticism was that there was a fair amount of noise from the plumbing - hearing others flush toilets, run showers and so forth. Again, not too bad, but thankful that most people seemed to keep similar hours to me. The hotel was nothing special, but the room was always clean and I had plenty of space. The mini fridge and microwave were nice. I stocked up on a few things in the fridge and it was nice to be able to do that. I will definitely keep this hotel on my list of places to stay in San Francisco.

The hotel is just OK. No surprise. A little expensive.

Hotel was good, but the location was the main selling point

A decent room at a decent rate only three blocks from War Memorial Opera House, and located on the bus line, #21, to R.R. ticket office at Ferry Plaza near Market and The Embarcadero. I was perfectly satisfied.

I hate hotels with outside corridors, which render windows useless. I wish you would specify it in your description of hotels.

Location, location, location. Hey its right in the middle of SF. Hayes Valley has lots to offer, food, shopping, and drinks, all within 2 blocks. A park is right around the corner with a couple of food trucks also. The hotel itself is fine and the rooms are clean. Parking for free!

But then, I wasn't looking for fancy for one night. Parking is free, is you can find a spot. Don't take your car out and come back late and expect a spot. I rated the individual stuff a 4, but overall a 3, as it could us a little "uplift". The "hot tub" is a bathroom jacuzzi - but good sized - not deep as the photos made it look. And our stopper did not seal well, so had to keep water running to keep it over the jets. Bit noisy through the walls, and our room was right next to the "maids room", and there was tremendous "chatter" in Spanish starting way too early for a Saturday morning. We got a deal so the value was there, but it is not worth the "going rate", other than the location and the hot tub! Nice people. Oh yeah... I left my computer charger in the room, and they are still searching for it? Would I recommend it... yes, if you want the basics and just a place to clean up and sleep, and be close the civic center/Hayes Valley area (lots of great restaurants and shops).

The breakfast that's offered is not worth the effort, My room had some odor that I aired out each night I returned back. Was able to park for free, bus was 1/2 block, great little french breakfast place a block away. All in all, SF is very expensive for hotels, so if you don't need extra nice then OK. I normally always take my own pillow when I travel, I was scared when we arrived but of course my pillow is much better, it wasn't horrible. As noted I would recommend this hotel, but with clarification of what to expect.

Days inn is a nice cheap hotel in a perfect location. the rooms are clean but small (1 Queen bed), bathroom is big and shower has hot water. you cannot expect a 5 Star hotel for this cheap price. I think it was perfect for what I needed, and will stay again.

clean and includes parking, convenient to sF civic ctr., opera house, symphony hall -- and many small local shops and good eateries.

This is my second stay at this Day's Inn. I always enjoy my stay here. The price is good, the location is good and it's very quiet at night every time I stay. The staff and maids aren't friendly at all, but I don't stay for that reason so it's not important. The rooms are clean and smell fresh. What I really like is that Day's Inn has a refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker included in every room free! One thing I wish they had, which every other hotel I've stayed in has, is a safe to lock up valuables when I'm out for the day. I will definitely stay here again!

This hotel was close to downtown San Francisco. It was clean and had prefect basic continental. And it was affordable, relative to the other hotels downtown.

This is the 4th time I've stayed in San Francisco, each time at a different hotel. Days Inn was everything I expected it to be. Clean, quiet, well lit outside for security, and surprisingly, the bed was super comfy! I've found it difficult to find hotels that offer a refrigerator and Days Inn includes this PLUS a microwave and coffeemaker! My only complaint would be that there was no safe in the room, as there has been at all other hotels and I usually do lock up extra cash, etc. while I'm out sightseeing, but I ended up taking it all with me each time. I will definitely stay here again! Very satisfied!
