This hotel is in a great location at a good price, and for that I give it four stars. However, the free wifi didn't work which was extremely frustrating. Just being able to check email was virtually impossible and forget about loading a program like Netflix. The other big negative is the beds. We had a room with two queens... More

The rooms were surprisingly nice as we booked after checking it out on here and the photos don't do it justice. Our renovated rooms were very good quality. The location is great, we parked up the hire car and walked to everywhere we wanted to see over the few days. The parking is tight! We had a full size SUV... More

Bed was very comfortable and we needed rest after traveling all day to get here. Everything was in good shape. Owner was an interesting character... Very helpful and enjoyed joking around which we enjoyed. Location was safe and just within walking distance to some top sights if you enjoy walking. Otherwise check out Uber. We used it for the first... More

The Castle is a reasonably priced motel in a city that's very expensive for accommodation and what's more the parking is free! The location is good, in a safe neighbourhood and within striking distance of major tourist attractions. You can either walk, if you don't mind the steep SF hills, or avail of plentiful public transport options - bus and... More

My friends and I were visiting SF for the first time, and I picked out this hotel for us to stay in overnight and was very pleased! The location is wonderful and close to the center of things-- it seemed like a very safe area and was within a 15-20 minute walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, etc., which was very... More

The Castle Inn was recommended to me by friends. It's a good clean room--not fancy--in a decent, safe neighborhood. The location is good--not far from anything really. I was traveling for work, and my mother came along. We rented a car and we're glad we did. (Public transportation in San Francisco can be limiting, and it's not a hard city... More

The good is that it is as advertised. It isn't trying to be something that it isn't. Good clean room with the exception of the drapes which were quite dirty. Bed was on the hard side but okay, decent shower, free parking. I'd stay here again.

Where do I begin? I have had the pleasure of staying here quite a few times, 4 or 5 I believe. Every single one of those trips have been for different reasons, occasions, etc. Not once in any of those visits was there anything short of amazing service, perfectly maintained rooms, and prime location! Just a walk from anything you... More

I travel extensively for work so I have a good sense of what a decent hotel should have. Castle Inn had very few of these things. 1- Noisy on the street, No AC, so windows had to stay open. Noise was terrible. Cars and Harleys all night. 6:30 AM garbage pickup right outside the windows! Was told they are triple... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
