I spent five nights at the Willows a week ago. The place was like a home away from home. The staff was very welcoming and the other guests charming. If shared shower and toilet facilities scare you off, don’t be. They were immaculate (probably a lot cleaner than mine at home). The breakfast wasn't fancy but more than enough to... More

This is a hidden gem. We could not have picked a better place. We were planning our honeymoon vacation and were stuck for a place to stay. We finally checked the reviews and booked the willows. Mark was very helpful and accomodating. From the minute we got there, it was apparent the hotel was excellent. Little touches like ghirardelli chocolate,... More

This is an excellent B&B right in the Castro. Staff are professional and friendly. Rooms are comfortable and well-maintained. There's an excellent breakfast and we met other travellers from around the world while staying here. The location is especially great. First, you can take the F or J (street car or metro) to get downtown or pretty much anywhere very... More

We stayed with the lads a wk ago, on arrival exterior didn't look promising, but a different story when we got inside. Before we arrived Mike and the lads sent us clear instructions on how to get to the address and also enter the building. Lovely place and top marks to the lads spotless, like as stated by others no... More

We booked here last minute as our prior place fell through (long story!). Mike and the gang were quick at responding and help facilitate our needs last minute. The place is a reasonable price for a very expensive San Francisco and even though the rooms were not ensuite we never had to wait for a toilet or shower. The place... More

Willows Inn was an ideal base for my recent week long visit to SF. Conveniently situated just off Market Street with easy access to Metro and street car transport and in an area packed with cafes and a nearby branch of Wholefoods, this was a great find. I stayed on what the Americans call the 3rd floor (2nd for us... More

40 y/o husband/father: Our stay at the Willows was great. 2 room suite was spacious and well-maintained. Bathrooms and showers were down the hall, but individual and never full. Staff were friendly and helpful, and rates were reasonable, especially given how expensive San Francisco is. Great location, too. My only complaint would be that there were no hot items at... More

The place is charming and convenient. The hosts are outstanding! Perfect balance of friendly, informative, warm, professional, and unobtrusive. Someone's there when you need them and they act interested and delighted to help find you the information or solution and yet they don't hover. Hospitable kitchen too!

This involved a spontaneous trip to the West Coast, which is a whole different story! My first time in San Francisco. I decided to go with this one after arriving and noticing that I SHOULD get a room. LOL. I was so happy with my choice! The reviews are right. I'm glad I did this instead of a Hotel because... More

A fantastic Bed an Breakfast hides behind an unprepossessing door at the junction of 14th and Church, Do not be concerned for within lurks a place where service and friendliness is second to none! Great rooms ( no AC - not necessary) with big beds and a breakfast that sets you up for the day. We also benefitted greatly from... More
