The garden and rooms are lovely, the other guests and staff are fun and welcoming. A great central location, easy to get to and from. Best chocolates ever in the rooms! Great setup for super-early risers - easy access to yummy fruit, cereal and and TOP-NOTCH coffee as early as you want.

I wish it cost just a little less but the Parker House is a gem. I stayed for 5 nights in late March. The owners' and staff members' commitments to the guests' comforts was exceptional. They have thought of many little touches: an urn of umbrellas set outside the front door on rainy days, for example. Both buildings feature pleasant... More

I can't say enough good things about the Parker Guest House. It was a delight. The room was sweetly appointed and comfortable. The people running the place were warm and welcoming. The grounds are lovely. The breakfast was perfect, done tastefully. I highly recommend this place. There is just no reason to stay anywhere else.

A lovely place to call home while visiting amazing San Francisco. So convienent to the trolley and a short walk to BART. Great outdoor garden and seating area...most welcome in this city of tightly packed residences. Definitely a must stay on your next trip to the bay area.

This Bed and Breakfast is by far the best I have ever stayed in. Friendly, courteous and helpful from the time I checked in to the time I checked out. My daughter lives in the Mission and was even invited to come for breakfast. What kind and courteous people run this place. Scott and Durham (name could be misspelled) are... More

I could only stay one day/night at the guest house, and I had such a great stay that I was disappointed I couldn't stay longer. Recommended by a friend, I nonetheless didn't expect a lot, though expected to like it enough. Once I got there, and was greeted by the friendly staff, and after a quick tour, I took an... More

The guest house has a lot of charm, and is situated ideally at the edge of the Castro and Mission neighborhoods. Steps away from the J line and buses. The staff were all very friendly. The beds were among the most comfortable I have ever experienced away from home. The breakfast was adequate with typical full continental selection. The breakfast... More

Location couldn't possibly be better. A couple blocks away from the Castro theater, one block away from Dolores Park. Easy access to public transportation -- the J line passes right in front of the hotel, all the other subway lines are a 5' walk away. Great rooms, friendly service, lovely breakfast. The (not so little) garden is really pretty. What... More

I have never been one for B&B accomodations. So much so that I use it as a "trick" question for new employees ("Where would you rather stay, a full-service hotel or a B&B?"). However, one night at the Parker Guest House has made me rethink my stance on the subject. The accomodations are superior. The staff could not possibly be... More

i only spent 2 nights, but I had such a wonderful time.The staff was so friendly and helpful, the property was beautiful and my room was clean and comfortable. If I ever get back to San Francisco, I will definitely stay at the Parker House again.
