What a sweet little inn only 2 blocks from the opera. Quaint architecture, lovely neighborhood with many nice restaurants and bars. An amazing deal given its optimal location and breakfast is included! Breakfast room newly remodeled is sparkling and sunny. Very neat and tidy. Share a bath but well worth it given price. We will be back soon!

I stayed at Hayes Valley Inn with my husband for 3 nights. The best thing of this stay I found was the location. There were many nice restaurants and bars nearby, and an easy walk to the BART station. Local friends told me Hayes Valley is one of the best neighborhoods in SF. The room was always clean and the...

My girlfriend and I visited San Francisco in early September. We needed a decent place to come back to after full, busy days. If you're planning an active trip and you won't spend much time in the hotel, this is a great choice. If you're looking for more luxury, service, or reclusion, maybe not. This is a charming but very... More

A welcome awaited us at the Hayes valley Inn. San Francisco is big and hilly, so a cab is often required to get around. having said that we walked most places from the inn. a good sized room, and although it was a shared bathroom, we never experienced any issues with queuing. plus cookies were handed out at 4 every...

My wife and i stayed here for 4 nights during our stay in San Francisco and had the best time. The B&B is the in the heart of the Hayes Valley neighbourhood which for me is the nicest in the city. The rooms are almost boutique like in their appearance and although they don't have bathrooms there are a few... More

I was in SF for a wedding for my niece who lives in the city. My niece picked Hayes Valley Inn as it is close to her home. I absolutely loved our stay at the Inn. We had several rooms for the wedding guest and overall everyone was extremely satisfied. Dennis was especially helpful. I had a few issues that... More

I am hesitant to review this hotel as I fear it being discovered but I am sure it already is! :) I guess the first thing is that it won't be for everyone because it is a European style shared bathroom and toilet b and b. If you can handle that it is the best value for your money in... More

I am very skeptical of this place. We stayed for 4 nights. We originally booked 2 rooms for 4 people but scaled back to 3 people. When they changed our reservation to 1 room with a queen and futon, they neglected to tell us that there was no room for a futon. They also neglected to tell us that a... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
