The wharf declined in importance by the 1950s as bridges were built in San Francisco and ferry travel became less important but continued to be used as offices. This area has recently had a new lease of life with trendy speciality food shops and restaurants opening up on the wharf.

Beginning in November 1969, the island was occupied for more than 19 months by a group of Aboriginal peoples from San Francisco who were part of a wave of Native activism across the nation with public protests through the 1970s. In 1972, Alcatraz became a national recreation area and received designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1986. Today, the island's facilities are managed by the National Park ...
... this reason I had a very different experience of the US. The first thing that grabbed my attention was the sheer size of EVERYTHING; cars, roads, drinks, food, people, cities. Paige asked if I wanted to come back to where she lived for a few days and explore there. She explained that it was a small town about 3 hours away from the city and very peaceful. Even after half a day in the city I felt like that was a good idea. Somewhere with nature, beauty and peace ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Civic Center Motor Inn San Francisco
Cheap, clean and friendly
I stayed at this hotel just for a couple night layover between some business and pleasure in Northern California. I got a great deal for 50 bucks a night for a King N/S room through the Best Western website.
The location is great, right in southwestern Soma and it is well maintained and very clean. Its a typical Best Western type Motor Inn. Nothing fancy, but definitely a steal in a vibrant part of the city.
Free parking is a plus, given the headache parking in San Francisco is virtually everywhere in the entire city.
I saw lots of families and people just having a fun time there. Check out The Stud about 50 yards down the street on the corner of Harrison and 9th....its a great gay bar, even fun to hang out in for us straight folk.
Stayed here one night as I had tickets to a Giants night game and for the next daytime game as well.
I'm writing this from my room at the Best Western now. I'm here at an AAA rate of $44.10 (reglar rate $49.95), which includes free parking, highspeed internet, and breakfast. This would be a great value even if the rooms were shabby, but they're not. (That $44.10 rate isn't available every night, larger rooms cost more, and on weekends and busy seasons rates will be higher, sometimes MUCH higher.)
I have to preface this review with a description of what we were looking for on this trip: A clean, cheap place in SOMA to sleep at after a night of partying. That said, my friend and I have pretty high standards so we were preparing to lower them for this stay.
San Francisco is an EXPENSIVE city for the most part (it takes $5.00 to
The Best Western Civic Center was worth every penny. Our room was clean and very comfortable -- the bathroom was brand new. We watched TV and relaxed while our kids enjoyed swimming in the hotel pool. The following day, we took the Cable Car to the Fisherman's Wharf - the weather was perfect in SF during the month of August! We really enjoyed our stay here in San Francisco - had a great place to sleep and relax - service was superb. Hope this review helps!
Great Price/Awful Location
The room itself was small but immaculate, for the price. The location was not so good. Right on a busy street, with a bar right on the corner. Traffic was too loud, never slept. Continental breakfast was good, but will probably never stay here again.
Good value in SF
I booked this hotel at the last minute, for a weekend when most of the hotels in SF were full. This is in the South of Market area, not close to public transportation, but if you're comfortable walking several blocks to Market (or calling a cab), it's fine. The area felt a little empty after dark, yet I never felt unsafe walking around with a friend. The rooms were the usual budget motel fare and were clean. The flowers in the parking lot area were a nice touch, the staff was friendly, and there were some delicious crisp apples in the lobby. I would stay there again.
Don't Waste your Money
One of the worst hotel i have been at. First of all when you pay over $115 you expect a room with comfort. The room looks like its fitted for a Motel 6 chain...Plus there is no air conditioning in the room. YEA thats right no air condiotiong at the best western that charges more than $100 a room. Better off across the street at the Howard Johnson there rate is lower and they have air conditioning.
ONe more thing!
If you pay more than $100 a night here, you're crazy.
Reserve via BW website and make sure you look for their BESTRATE, usually 79-100 depending on season. Expect to pay way more during the local Gay Street Fairs.
