Our stay was overshadowed by management not dealing with our complaint. Our bedroom was outside of breakfast room and separating was a corridor, we were awoken by the noise of diners, this i could deal with! To make matters worse a table and chairs were located outside our room and also brochures for things to do! Which meant when breakfast... More

This was my stop off before returning home after my North California road trip. This was a perfectly chilled and friendly hotel and in an excellent location to grab some last minute buys in Hayes Valley and about ten minute walk from Haight Street. The afternoon tea and cookies they serve is a lovely touch, as is the wonderful welcome... More

At first, we were not sure about this place. The girl on check in did not seem too interested and it was so quiet inside when we got there. The room seemed a little old. But the more we saw of this place, the more we liked it. The Inn is located in a nice neighbourhood with several coffee shops,... More

This B&B is situated in a vibrant and 'happening' part of San Francisco. The staff are both very friendly and professional. The rooms are really nice and clean. There is also a larger than normal continental breakfast, free WiFi and it's at a bargain price. The only negatives are sharing the bathroom and road noise (Which is expected and ear... More

Stayed over Labor Day weekend to meet with friends and family. Bang in the middle of Gough street, reasonably busy filled with restaurants and bars. No parking but very helpful when I phoned ahead. We parked up in the performing arts garage at 360 grove, 50m away for 65 bucks the sat to tues. Hotel staff were very welcoming and... More

As a person who has stayed in many fine hotels we found this little bed and breakfast to be outstanding. Run by a French lady, it maintains a charming European air. Although not beautifully decorated with the finest linens. It is cleaner than many 5 star hotels we have stayed in. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable creating a warm... More

I was looking for a reasonable hotel in San Fransisco and stumbled onto this gem... The place is clean, the staff is very pleasant and good humored. If you don't mind sharing the shower and bathroom with the people on the same floor, this is a real find! By the way, the corridor is very quiet, this makes for a... More

I had a pleasant four-night-stay for my fist time in SF. The neighbourhood is great, not touristy but with loads of nice restaurants, cafes and independent boutique shops. The location is not cental central but I wasn't bothered since having a friend drove me around. It wasn't hard to find park space on the streets either. I loved the interior,... More

Found out through a recommendation from a good friend. Considering the amenities and location, a night at the Hayes Valley Inn is a blessed bargain. They probably could be charging 20 percent more, but one gets the good vibe that their business plan depends on old fashioned hospitality and word of mouth. The staff is meticulously knowledgeable about the neighborhood.... More
