An older hotel, in a good location, nice bars and cafe's around, the room I stayed in was a box, just enough room for a bed, TV didn't work, and very noisy (room 212). Every time someone went to toilet, and bathrooms were shared so people constantly walking up and down the corridors, the fan would come on, and run... More

Staff was very nice and suggested many nearby restaurants. Used the bus transit system with the phone app worked like a charm. We stayed in the room closest to the dining room facing the alley. The bathroom right next to our room made it convenient. Our stay was very nice and quiet. Will definitely come back.

My husband and I stayed here in March of 2014 when I was in town for a conference. We stayed in the double bed room, and thought it was perfectly wonderful! It is an ideal location to feel like a local- Hayes Valley has great shopping, biking, eating etc. and is very centrally located. I loved the hotel dogs, and... More

A very nicely situated place. Right in the middle of the entertainment district of San Francisco. Teaters music venues restaurants and bars are right on your doorstep. Centrally located. Walking distance to a lot of things. The rooms are small but clean and tidy. For its location it is a cheap place probably depending on the shared bath and restrooms.... More

The rooms with queens beds are on the Gough street which is noisy. The water pressure on the Third floor is pretty low. The Location is central to most of San Francisco. The Staff deal with and concern quickly.

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

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!

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.
