Pros: - Very low rates for San Francisco average. - Nice area with a plenty of restaurants, coffee shops etc. However, it's not very central, you have to get to downtown by car or public transport. - Helpful and very kind staff. - Free wi-fi in the room. Cons: - Three floors and no elevator. - Very dated interiors, though... More

Staff was very kind and helpful. Great breakfast. Shared bathrooms were always clean and fresh. It was easy for us to walk to bus and tram stops for transportation to other parts of the city. We enjoyed a concert at Davies Symphony Hall only two blocks away. My son left his Ipod in the room and the staff sent it... More

My husband, I, son and daughter in law stayed for one Saturday night. We had two rooms on the third floor and were just delighted. The Inn is a charming very European style B&B in the charming Hayes Valley neighborhood. The hotel was immaculate throughout. The rooms, while on the small side, have a sink in the room with the...

Our stay in Hayes Valley Inn was very nice. The rooms have a special flair and are very clean! Negative to mention is the loud and noisy street. Even with closed windows it is very loud, the windows have no noise protection. And often the wifi kicked me out. The bathroom is very small, but it's ok, as well as... More

We stayed here in March 2013 for three nights. The room aswell as the Hotel was clean. The common bathroom was also very clean at all times. In our eyes the room was big enough. As far as I rember there are no rooms which don't have a window to the street. This can be a problem for people who... More

Spent two nights in room 311 at the Hayes Valley Inn January 30 and 31st 2014. The Inn was exactly as other Tripadvisor reviewers had describe it; clean, friendly, and convenient. I purchased a 3 ballet subscription to the San Francisco Ballet and to cut travel costs, I decided to try the Hayes Valley Inn based on all the positive... More

The Hayes Valley Inn is a 10 minute stroll from the BART Civic Center station which is on a direct line to the International Airport (go straight down Grove Street and Gough Street is 2nd left after you have crossed Van Ness Avenue) and is a convenient base from which to see the major attractions of this delightful city.

The parking was awful. There is no parking for the hotel and I had to drive around and around the surrounding areas to find a spot. I've been to SF several times so I know parking is tough and expensive and in the past I have only used public transportation. However, we were on a road trip so we just... More

We had a lovely getaway to SF at the Hayes Valley Inn. Very uniquely decorated, your traditional European-style B&B. A good, varied selection for breakfast at a central dining table where you are immersed into conversation with your fellow guests from all over the world. Rooms were clean, lovely, and sufficient for our needs and sharing a bathroom wasn't a... More
