We cannot praise this beautiful B&B enough. Our host Lizi went out of her way to make our stay very enjoyable and helped us with parking which can be an issue in San Francisco. The breakfast is excellent and in the evening you have port and sherry available. Room was lovely and large by local standards. A beautiful stay in... More

The Inn San Francisco is very well-run. I felt as if I were a houseguest, not a hotel customer. The staff emailed me before my arrival to ask me when I expected to be there so they could have my room ready. When I arrived, I was told to make myself at home, feel free to eat the snacks including... More

Beautiful inn, with all the amenities of a great B & B: comfortable/attractive room, efficient/friendly staff, delicious/plentiful breakfast! Walking distance to all the sights of the Mission District, easy access to BART and other public transport. Highly recommended!

I have been staying at this beautiful B&B yearly for over twenty years. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in San Francisco! The staff makes me feel as if I'm part of their family. Through all these years I've stayed in almost every room at the Inn, and they are each unique, lovely, and authentically Victorian. There is an ample breakfast... More

We spent some time in San Francisco in June. Our grand daughter is planning on attending University of SF so we shared our trip with her. Although we have been to SF many times, our experience at The Inn was simply perfect. The hotel is a Victorian style house and and each room has its own theme. We loved the... More

We arrived in the evening and the staff was extremely helpful in getting us checked in and giving us tips for things to do in San Francisco the next day. The hotel is in the Mission District, which is south of the main tourist areas of the Golden Gate and the Fisherman's Wharf areas. The area is full of restaurants... More

I LOVE staying at The Inn SF and stay there every time I am in San Francisco. The hotel is gorgeous- an amazing Victorian style house in prime shape and wonderful decor. Each room has its own theme(and price) decorated with beautiful antique furniture- it comes with two exquisite robes, so you can enjoy the relaxing hot tub set in... More

We had a fantastic weekend here. Our small room was indeed small, but thoughtfully provisioned, and more than adequate. They brought us a fan, iron, and mini ironing board very promptly upon request. The breakfast buffet until 11am let us sleep in, and my husband brought me breakfast in bed! Really good vegetarian quiche and fresh fruit. The hosts were... More

We were welcomed and felt at home from the very friendly and helpful staff. The common areas of the home were comfortable and inviting. The breakfast was quite a spread and very well presented, yum, we loved it! We liked the rooftop deck at night, fantastic views, but did not use it during the day as it was too hot.... More
