I stayed in the junior suite which has the bonus of having its own patio and a private entrance to and from the street. Great location, and the room was spotless and nicely decorated. Felt totally at home and comfortable. Will definitely stay there again on my next SF trip.

We would never choose another place to stay in SF, and we already want to come back. It was like crashing at an awesome uncle or cousin's fabulous house. Rooms are beautiful, breakfast is delicious, staff are super nice (Scott is the best host!), everything in SF is easy accessible, and the area has the coolest hang out spots. Feels... More

In a neighborhood where there are few decent tourist accommodations this is a terrific discovery. The rooms are very comfortable and equipped with everything from free wi-fi to gourmet chocolates, there are comfortable garden nooks in which to relax, the whole place is extremely clean and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.

Fabulous time at a friendly, welcoming and accomodating guest house. Great staff, lovely room and wonderful location. If you want a memorable visit to San Francisco then the Parker guest house is the place to stay. Look forward to returning.

This is the second time I have stayed here and I don't think I will ever stay anywhere else again in San Francisco. Our flight was arriving late so we were giving full details for access if delayed. Its a short taxi ride from the airport and we had a great welcome from the staff. We went for the deluxe... More

My mother, grandmother and I stayed at the Parker for a short trip to San Francisco. We had a fabulous time. Everyone who works there is very friendly, the rooms are cute and comfortable, and the breakfast was actually quite good! I highly recommend it, and plan on staying there again!

This trip was part business and part vacation. I did research for places to stay for the trip and everything the Parker Guest House has to offer made it an easy choice. Better then any of the hotels and you to enjoy the ambient of being staying with friends. The breakfast was a nice feature, and have to say better... More

Looking for a place that is in the Castro? Gay-owned,? Moderately priced? Friendly? Close Public transportation? This is the place for you. Two San Francisco homes that have been turned into a 21 room guest house. Parker is located in the Castro, on a major street that tends to be very quiet with the exception to the trolley that runs...

A very pleasant B&B. The service was excellent - the staff could not have been more friendly. Based on comments I read before my visit I was concerned that my room might be too noisy. But I really didn't notice any noise (apart from the tram passing by infrequently). Breakfast was lovely. The location is fantastic for the Mission and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my sister after 2 nights at a hotel around Union Square. The guest house is absolutley beautiful! In fact, I don't think I would stay in downtown SF the next time I visit. We loved everything about this guest house and the entire Castro neighbourhood. The breakfast is still more of a continental style... More
