We stay here often - staff always friendly and helpful and new person Craig at the front desk so solicitous and willing to help in any way to make the stay enjoyable. (Craig is indicative of all the caring staff at Hayes Valley.) Love the sunny and pleasant breakfast room with all sorts of good foods. Good way to begin... More

This was a one nighter stay in the city for my wife & I. She insisted we stay at a B&B so I found this place. The room is nice and clean. However, parking is lacking. There's no parking whatsoever. It's either you find whatever is on the street or at the parking garage across around the corner. Also, I... More

Our stay at Hayes Valley Inn was a good one. The staff were helpful and friendly; the rooms were older and in line with pricing. The location is perfect with shopping and restaurants/bars in the area.

Finding a decent place to stay in SF within a reasonable budget is really tough. This hence becomes a fantastic option. Well located- a good 10 mins walk to the tram and buses are just down the block. Friendly people, clean but tiny rooms (the bed is really small for 2 people) helps to have the basin inside the room.... More

Lovely location and good value for money. The decor was a bit dated but the location more than makes up for that. Great restaurants and bars on the same block as well as loads of good places to shop within walking distance.

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

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.
