We spent a lovely 4 days at the Hayes Valley Inn. Set in a great neighbourhood, we were afforded a warm welcome and encouraged to come back for a repeat trip (very tempted!!). Our room was well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was yummy and tea time was an added treat for weary sightseers. Its fantastic to find an affordable and... More

Excellent little hotel/B&B. Great location - close to transport etc to get to see the sights of San Fran. Also great in terms of being close to cafes/restaurants etc. Felt very safe in this area. The staff members we dealt with were excellent and couldn't do enough to help out and answer any questions we had The breakfast that was... More

My second stay at this sweet spot located in Hayes Valley. Just love the staff and people who tend to gravitate towards its own type of Bohemia. Comfortable and authentic. Great location to symphony, ballet.

Fantastic European-style hotel/B&B in the heart of San Fran. Stayed 9 days and was extremely pleased with the service, the management and the breakfast. Bathrooms were shared but very clean. Price was great -especially for something within walking distance to EVERYTHING!

Quaint hotel with friendly employees. Enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. If you don't mind not having a bathroom in the room but in the hallway, then this is an alternative hotel and you can save money. We travelled during a convention month and saved $ 300 on one night and did not mind. Great location but no parking!

Stayed for 3 nights with my daughter. Pleasant stay and good location with walking distance to the subway, Bart about 15 mins walk. Affordable price with daily breakfast. Good burger joint round the corner as you exit from the hotel, turn right and right. Have to carry luggage up 2/3 flights of stairs, depending on which floor you are staying.... More

A european style hotel in an old victorian building in a trendy, safe, popular, and foodie neighborhood. Hotel rooms are basic, small, yet clean, but threadbare with bathroom facilities shared on its three floors. Convenient online booking. Wifi, no elevator, and challenging on street parking (less of a problem on weekends) though paid parking nearby. Very pleasant and accessible staff,... More

The location of the Inn is fabulous - lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The Inn itself is a difficult one to judge. It is definitely a great value option for SF - but I've stayed in much nicer hostels. But given that accommodation is so pricey in SF you can't really beat it on price. My summary would be:... More

Hayes Valley Inn was so fantastic, we wished we had been able to spend our whole stay here. The Inn is in a nice area for walking around window shopping, with lots of great little places to eat as well. It is somewhat of a walk from the nearest Bart station, so if you have lots of luggage on your... More

Hayes Valley is a trendy up and coming area of San Francisco. There are lots of young people living in the area and new bars opening all the time to cater for this, for that alone Hayes Valley Inn was perfect. The hotel itself is on the older side, with smaller than expected rooms that had little ventilation. But for... More

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.
