My wife and I spent a night here again – the first time was three years ago – and were again happy we made the decision to do so. We live in Europe, and the Inn on Castro has a distinctly European feeling about it, even though the house it is in is very typical for SF. Each room has... More

We didn't stay in the Inn, but we did rent one of their apartments - the two bedroom on Caselli - during our stay in San Francisco. What a fantastic choice. The apartment was wonderful, A home from home - furnished to a high standard and in a lovely street. You were able to retreat to peace and quiet but... More

We spent 5 nights at the Douglass Street Apartment (a 2 bedroom - 1 1/2 bath apt - part of the Inn on Castro) and had a wonderful time, for our wedding day (Jul 3rd) and my birthday (Jul 5th). We had a quite deck out back that was perfect to entertain quests and a lovely garden below that we... More

This is the closest to staying as a friend in someone's home that I've ever felt in a B&B. Jan was delightful and a great conversationalist. He told me he's been doing this for 33 years, so I'm sure that he could give quite a history of his time in the Castro. The only drawback, that you should be aware... More

Luxurious accommodation with all the benefits from staff with years of experience meeting the needs of travellers. A most convenient and comfortable base from which to explore San Francisco. Great breakfasts, genuinely friendly staff and great local advice. One of the best places to stay.

Really enjoyed my stay -- overall, it was an excellent experience. I stayed in the Green Room which comes with a small private bath down the hall. The owner of the B&B is very friendly, and the establishment really covers all areas for anything you could want during your stay. The room came with bathrobes, a glass pitcher, glasses, wine...
