The location was good and buses were very close. The room was clean and cozy even though the bed was a little squeaky, not very good for young couples if you don't want to disturb your neighbors. We never had a problem with the WC and only once a wet suit was drying in the bath so it was smelly.... More

Spent five nights here and really liked the place. I arrived quite a few hours before check-in and they looked after my luggage while I explored the local area. There is no A/C in the rooms but I didn't miss it as the room was cool and comfortable. Traffic noise in the evening might disturb some and you have to... More

The only reason this place didnt receive an excellent rating was because of the bathroom location...WHICH is NOT that bad at all. It's a community toilet and shower. But, they are in their separate room. There is no one else showering with you or in a stall next to you. It is set up like a house. Your bathroom isn't... More

Hayes Valley Inn's building is at least a century old, and is a refreshed version of what travellers of that time might wish for. This isn't a chic copy with spanking-new plastic woodwork; this is the real thing, the details nicely kept up but bearing the honest marks of time. We found it clean, comfortable and comforting -- the bedding... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at this inn. The staff was friendly, helpful and fun! We have stayed in many different cities and this was our best vacation ever. Our room was clean and comfortable, we never had to wait for the bathrooms and breakfast was great! We can't say enough good things about this inn. We will definitely stay... More

I was visiting my son who lives in the Lower Haight, and this hotel was a 20 minute walk from his apartment. And it was so easy to get anywhere in the city from the Hayes Valley area! The room was spacious with a bay window overlooking the street, and although you can hear traffic, I used ear plugs when... More

Budget hotels can be hit and miss - this was in between. The room was extremely small - I always read reviews and think - who care how small the room is? - but 2 people for a week - gets a bit cramped. The big minus was the communal bathrooms. The toilets are shared - not a huge deal... More

Everything was great ... the shared toilet closet was a bit small for me ... but, a Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk is just around the corner (best I've had in a long time), the Opera, Ballet, good restaurants, cool stuff at MAC - Modern Appealing Clothing, good parking - it's all right by the Inn ... and the Inn still...

We stayed in two rooms, because we decided to come one night earlier a few days before our stay. It was not a problem at all to arrive one day earlier. Both rooms were very tidy, and clean, although the carpet in the first room was a little dirty, but not much. The rooms are furnished a little old fashioned,... More

I never know what to expect with "budget" hotels. The HVI was nice, clean, good staff, decent free breakfast and great location in an up and coming neighborhood with tons of great restaurants! The room was very small - but I think that there are bigger ones! The only thing I didn't like was the shared bathroom - and it... More
