I can't believe how close it was to everything yet set back off the street with a serene garden where I enjoyed my evening glass of wine with fellow guests. Chatting about what they had done that day giving me ideas of what I should add to my itinerary including places to eat. Scott and the team were so good... More

Away from the loud and noisy center still so close to it. Close to great food and drinks as well. Easy-going place - nice spots to relax both in- and outside - great steam room - super beds - socialising event every day at 5:30 - glass of Cognac always waiting next to the fire-place - fast WiFi - we...

After waiting 2.5 hours for my rental car at SFO, then breezing into this B&B, l was crabby. The desk man Matt made me smile again in 2 minutes and the experience did not flag after that wonderful beginning. They upgraded my room even on a one day rental, the room was large, great bathroom, no complaints at any level.... More

We spent a week at the Parker Guest House and couldn't have had a better stay. The accommodations are beautiful, clean and comfortable. It is however the staff that makes the Parker so fantastic. They are friendly, helpful, and efficient. All of the guys made us feel welcome from the minute we entered until we left at the end of... More

If one was going to write a manual about Guest Hospitality then they should just copy everything that Parker Guest House does on a daily basis. The location is awesome, located just blocks from the Castro and the awesome restaurants of the Mission, and you can simply step out side to catch the J Train (just $2) to take it... More

I stayed her between 13-19th June 2014. This is by far the best accommodation in San Francisco. The bedrooms are immaculate and the gardens are superb. The staff are extremely friendly and their wine at 17.30 everyday is an excellent suggestion to meet new people. It is extremely close to the Castro area for bars and nightclubs and 10-15mins on...

We had a chance to stay at the Parker Guest House recently. Yet again, we were extremely impressed by just about everything. The staff is amazing. The location is perfect. The room are tasteful. What I appreciate the most are little touches here and there. For example, there were tiny American flags in each small table arrangement on breakfast tables... More

Quiet, safe guest house smack dab between the Mission and the Castro. It is really a guest house not a b and b, because the owners and staff leave you alone during breakfast, etc. others have said they were disappointed by the lack of hot breakfast, but there were so many options in the continental breakfast that i had a...

What a very nice Bed and Breakfast within minutes of Market Street. Great Staff and the rooms and the added touch of a chocolate each night was very nice. Would not hesitate to stay again the next visit to San Francisco.

Had a terrific stay in late June and definitely plan to visit at least once again sometime over the next year. Parker Guest House is conveniently located, very well maintained, and quite comfortable. The late afternoon wine social and the continental breakfast were much appreciated. In fact, that is how I met a couple of other guests I'll keep in... More
