Super 8 SFO Review

Great location with easy access to a lot of touristy attractions such as pier 39, union square, fillmore district etc. Room itself was small with some very basic amenities

Pretty Sure Room Used to be Closet

The first thing we noticed was the windows in the halls were open, so the hallways were freezing. Room started out pretty cold, too, but heat worked OK. I'm pretty sure our room used to be a broom closet or something. The double bed barely fit. The bed was not especially comfortable. The cable package on TV was very limited. The bathroom was bigger than the room itself, and seems to have been the utility part of the broom closet. The shower was not separated out from the sink or toilet (it was just a shower head, shower seat, and curtain with no tub enclosure), so the water from the shower got the entire bathroom floor wet, making it slippery and probably dangerous. TV was not on in the breakfast room in the morning, making it pretty somber in addition to tiny. Front desk guy was nice and helpful. If I'd been traveling alone, I think I would have survived much better, but my wife was pretty traumatized overall. For the price in San Francisco, I'm sure you're not going to do much better. In all, I'm glad we saved the money, but would advise you that if you are not traveling alone, spring for better digs if you have the means.

Good location for price

I booked this hotel because the price was right, parking is only $25 a day and others had said the location was great. Upon driving to the hotel I went through a very rundown scary area and really didnt know what to expect. Super 8 is on the line between somewhat sketch and nice. Out room was clean staff was helpful and free breakfast was an added bonus! I'd say if your looking for a good priced hotel w not a ton of extras this place is it! It's in close walking distance of the cable cars and shops.

Great location, most helpful staff

While the rooms are quite small and basic, the location is perfect and the staff at the front desk are most helpful and pleasant.

just a place to sleep

its a good location. 2 blocks from cable car. But it is on the edge of a "shady" area. It's great if you're just looking for a place to sleep while in town.

Considering how much you pay it is a good value. Downtown location, just a couple minutes walk to union square, Powell street, market street and so on.

Cheap, clean, conveniently located

When I'm on a business trip and spending the majority of my day in conference rooms, I don't need much in the way of hotel amenities. The Super 8 was inexpensive, my room was clean, and my shower was hot. I also enjoyed the continental breakfast - juice, bagels, cereal, coffee - what more do you need?

The bad and the ugly

The front desk staff were not friendly. The TV was not working in my room. Brought this to the front desk's attention but they did not send someone to take a look at it until the second day of my stay. There is a big hole on my duvet cover. I can hear noise from the street.

All the staff were very helpful.

All the staff were very helpful. However, there was an odor that was strong the minute you walked into the hotel. I had to make a special trip to get a room freshner the entire 5 days i was there. Otherwise, the facility was great!
