I spent three nights at the Willows B&B. Its location at Church & Market Streets makes it only steps away from the Muni, and a short walk away from Castro Street. The place is very affordable, and the area is a nice change from the crowded downtown Union Square hotels. I stayed in a two-room suite with another couple. In... More

This is one of a few b&b places left in the Castro area. It's conveniently located just around the corner from Church Street Station on 14th Street next to a Safeway 24hours supermarket and in easy walking distance to bars and restaurants on and around Castro street which is well known as the LGBT neighbourhood in San Francisco. The hosts,... More

Was looking for an affordable place to stay, and for the price I was more than pleased with the Willows. Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms and great breakfast. Best was the location steps away from the Muni and just a few blocks from Castro. Was initially worried about the shared bath but as it turned out there was no need... More

I've stayed at the willows at least 6 times in the last 20 years.It was alway a good time to remember. The big plus at Willows is the friendly staff, great Location and the "feeling Home". The interieur of Willows is quite unique. Lots of Victorian furniture, nice vintage photos on the walls... and lots of willows furniture. Normaly i... More

I had my second visit in a year to Willows B&B. The staff is friendly and helpful, it's clean, it's perfectly located, steps from the streetcars on Market Street and it's in close proximity to Castro district experiences. They provide a simple, healthy mix of food for breakfast. I always enjoy the conversations around the breakfast table.

As my daughter lives in the Castro, we wanted to stay in the area during our stay in the city. So we chose the Willows Inn. Good choice, I have to say. We were received very friendly, our room with two beds was conveniently sized and adequately equipped (but only had a rather small window on an alley, where there... More

I live in San Francisco and when I had my apartment painted last week, I decided to stay at the Willows Inn for four days. I’m so glad I made that decision! My stay was lovely because my room was so comfortable and there was a real attention to detail, to make sure my time at the inn would be... More

Staying in The Castro

Neighborhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
