Place is decent but not great. Parts of the room were dirty and very noisy. Seemed like someone was going to break in at any time. Upon arrival the guy behind the desk wasn't interested in helping us at all. Just a bit rude and disinterested. Ok place at best

Booked 3 nights for my stay in SF Booked here on the basis of price and ratings I was not disappointed, Checkin was very efficient- I was given a map and major sights/ landmarks noted. It was clear that the castle was in a great location- just of Van Ness, on a major bus route and made the main sights... More

My stay at Castle Inn was really great. it is very close to the bus station, and arriving earlier than the check-in time I had no problem leaving my suitcase at the front desk. The hotel is very close to Van Ness Avenue, one of San Fran's main streets, the Marina is a 20 minute walk, Chinatown and other neighborhoods... More

We had two nights on a short trip in San Francisco, The hotel suited us due to the proximity to all the major places, the most important was the parking and reasonable price. The hotel staff was kind and helped us to orient ourselves in places of entertainment close to the hotel.

The room was very spacious, included a mini fridge, dressing area, and a fresh pleasent smell. Clean, quiet, and safe FREE parking. You can't ask for more than that in San Francisco. For the price this is a top notch place to stay! We will be back and I would refer friends.

Loved staying here, the staff were so friendly and helpful. It's a nice safe location close to restaurants and bars, about a half hour walk to pier 39. We stayed upstairs which was nice and quiet, free parking was great. Rooms were comfortable and clean, no complaints :)

Our stay at the Castle Inn was fabulous. We lived on Russian Hill for 20 years, so we were familiar with the neighborhood, and the location is terrific. Not only that, free parking, under cover, is guaranteed. Those things alone are worth the price in San Francisco, but in the Castle Inn, the room was comfortable and the service quite... More

We stayed at the Castle Inn in San Fran for three nights, the hotel is tucked away off the street on Broadway situated close to Chinatown and within walking distance of the Fishermans Wharf and Polk St which is great for cheap dinners and close to loads of cosy and friendly local bars. Our room was very clean with a... More

There's no need to use 3rd party sites to book this hotel. The owner is very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. It's centrally located and close to public transportation. We walked to Lombard street and from the cable car museum. You can't beat the FREE parking! Clean, spacious, comfortable rooms with refrigerator and microwave, did not smell stale, great... More
