Great location to both Muni & Bart at Civic Center Station. But, this station is very dirty. A lot of homeless camp out at this station. On my last visit a homeless woman, with obvious mental issues, was urinating on the sidewalk just outside the entrance of the hotel. Seeing this made me seriously consider is it all worth it to stay here. If I were a woman, I would not walk to or from this hotel late at night alone. However, once inside the hotel it is all together a different experience. The entire staff is friendly & very accommodating.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jay135 Mixed experience
We liked the location of the hotel in the middle of down town. Especially the staff in the restaurant was very friendly and service oriented.
The rooms were adequate, but the public space is a little out dated.
One thing is not acceptable wssdisappointing: the wifi connection. It just didn t work a part of our stay. We had to leave our room and go to the elevator area for a connection. Ofcourse we asked the reception for improvement. They gave as a reason: the hotel was fully booked.
In general: in its present state and performance the holiday Inn does not live up to expectations. Little improvement can have a huge positive impact.

Seemed to be a lot of construction outside and a great number of panhandlers/homeless.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tommy41 Great Central Location
This hotel is great for the location its at if you plan to visit San Francisco. It also offers secure and easy parking, usally not available in San Francisco. Hotel was very modern looking. It was also spotless. The rooms were a bit dated/plain along with the balcony.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by spokanerealtor Very nice hotel.
Only drawback was that if you were going to get out of the hotel to go have something to eat or drink, you need to walk close to a mile to find any decent options. Otherwise, once in the hotel, I think this place was excellent.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DNAhound Too much DNA
I don't appreciate finding toothpaste on the faucet handles, short curly hair on the toilet bowl, and hair in the shower and on the bed. Those who clean the rooms (this is true for the last five places I've stayed) should wipe down the door trim, the wood work, and the bathroom side of the doors periodically to rid them of smudges and smears that suggest the worst.

This hotel is one of the standard Holiday Inn nothing special nor the location compare to all the Holiday Inn I stayed before! Not restaurants outside the hotel you have to work to other street to find for restaurants. Nothing has being changed since I stayed over 20 years ago.

Everyone at the check-in/check-out desk was extremely nice and very helpful and accommodating. Every request was fulfilled - extra cot, extra towels, late check out, adjacent rooms - without any hassle.
Rooms were clean, bathrooms were clean. Beds were very comfortable.
Overall very good stay for a very good price.
Also, located close to downtown SF and Bart station.

No matter where I go Im always happy with the staff and my suite! If you want hassle free no worries in a secure location then this is your best bet. Rooms are super clean and the staff is extra friendly, helpful and know their city!
So much to do and I got to swim in the Pacific so I didn't get a chance to check out the pool and other facilities at this location

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrLMB Great location & wonderful staff!
The staff at this location was amazing. So on top of everything and helpful. The location is amazing, just steps from BART and short walks to prime entertainment. The price is more than what I'd typically pay for a Holiday Inn, but as far as San Francisco rates go, it is very reasonable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sgirvine worst hotel stay I've ever had
this was the absolute worst hotel room I have ever stayed in.. I couldn't sleep because of the noise outdoors, the room filled with smoke, and it was generally uncomfortable (air conditioning didn't work and the remote control stopped working during my stay, not to mention the fact that the Internet was extremely slow and I couldn't work from the room). my bathroom is even dirty when I checked in.my bathroom was even dirty when I checked in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ThomasRC Nice hotel, questionable location
I always stay at Holiday Inn Civic Center when I visit San Francisco. The hotel provides clean comfortable rooms for guests. But the location is questionable, especially at night, even worse if outdoors alone. But it is very convenient for MUNI and BART transportation.
Currently construction is occurring beside the hotel which results in noise in the morning (the hotel provides ear plugs) which makes "sleeping in" difficult.
There is a parking garage inside the hotel property, but $37 per night is a little excessive.
The same with the $20+ breakfast buffet. Members of the Holiday Inn frequent guest program used to receive complimentary coupons for the breakfast, but on my last few visits, none were offered.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Impala A good hotel, great pool
Good hotel, not quite so great a location, but we managed. Transport is good, especially the F tram to the waterfront. Would prefer option of a more reasonably priced breakfast packages, eg cereal/fruit/yoghurt, plus poached eggs on toast. Pool is very good, nowhere to change or shower though. American hotels,such as the Holiday Inn chain, need to have (available from reception if need be), an electric jug (kettle) and milk and tea bags for British Commonwealth visitors in particular. Also renting a fridge is a silly idea - should be provided, not expensive - rental cost is exorbitant.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigCityGuy Good location
The property has a great location that is centrally located to the BART and MUNI along Market Street. The surrounding area is not the best with all of the homeless people, but the location and cleanliness of the rooms created a good stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Carl305 Holiday inn 50 8th st san francisco ca 94103
Check in computer system was down for over 4 hours. Although staff was friendly it is unacceptable the hotel does not have a backup system to accommodate guests timely. Hotel shower head water flow was also a huge problem. Either the shower head needed cleaning so the water flow rate could improve or the shower head needed to be replaced. Nothing worse than coming back to the hotel after a long work day to try to relax with a good shower and being unable to do so because of a cheap or duty or old shower head.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anast75 Convenient location with comfortable beds
I stayed at HolidayInn San Francisco by Civic Center in June for one night only while I was in town for business.
The receptionist (Ana?) was an extremely nice lady and check-in as well as check-out procedures were a breeze! It was nice to notice the recognition of IHG (then PriorityClub) members and I was given a choice of rooms I could stay in (double vs one bed).
The room was clean, comfortable, big and simple. The light sound of the construction was still heard on the top floor, but it didn't bother me at all. Plus, earplugs are provided in all rooms, so light sleepers staying here will be fine as well.
The only minus I could find in this hotel is dining. If you are a tired traveler that can't or doesn't want to walk too far, then you will be super disappointed with the on-site choices. 50onEight is their cafe/restaurant, which offers a limited variety of food and seems overpriced for the quality and the service that you get. I looked around the buffet area which was half empty and settled on a pasta meal from the regular menu.. Now, I really don't think that their meals were expensive, but the taste and the quality was really bad and as you can imagine it's hard to make pasta taste bad. The servers looked bored and appeared unfriendly to the customers.
Summary. HolidayInn in San Francisco/Civic Center is conveniently located and provides a good and comfortable rest. The hotel staff at the reception is extremely helpful and friendly. Skip their on-site restaurant and you will have nothing to complain about.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DrCoyote Our stay at the Holiday Inn San Francisco CIvic Center - Sept. 2013
We stayed with my wife at the Holiday Inn Civic Center San Francisco from Sept. 16 to Sept. 2013.
Location is fantastic and very convenient to visit San Francisaco downtown but the ciminality in the vincinity is an issue especially in the evening.
The hotel room was large and the bed very confortable and not noisy at all. Still the bathroom and carped was not fully cleaned every day.
We were negatively surprised by the outdoor pool facility and the non availability of snacks in the distributors of the hotels (only soft drinks are available).
