A reasonably priced hotel in a great location. The room was large, and clean. The staff super friendly and helpful, and the location perfect for a first time visit. Was an easy walk to union square and transport options. Would definitely stay again.

I agree with everything that Capalaba_couple wrote below. Before moving to Arizona, I lived in San Francisco for 35 years and did not know this place existed until I found it on tripadvisor. You just can not beat it as far as value for your money! My partner and I had one room and a friend had another. We all... More

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights in July 2014. We found the room comfortable, very clean and reasonably priced. Staff were really helpful and knowledgeable regarding the area and how to get around. We were staying on the 5th floor with a view that overlooked the city lights. Made for great photos at night. Close enough to downtown... More

Our first stop after booking all our hotels via trip advisor, we were not disappointed in the Mayflower, as everyone has said before it's a Gem. Beautiful entrance, great novelty old fashion lifts with grate closing, we asked for quiet room & not disappointed on 6th level - 612. The room very clean, comfortable bed & serviced with clean towels... More

My friend and I stayed here on a girls trip on our first ever visit to California and San Francisco in September of 2013. We chose it because of the decent price. The guy who greeted us at the front desk was nice and quirky, very helpful in showing us where to go and not go in town (like Tenderloin).... More

A quaint hotel with lots of character, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff which is always a plus! We spent 3 nights in total there, 1 night on the 4th floor and 2 on the 5th. Now, the significance of floor...On the 4th floor there was no view but on the 5th you could see across the skyline, to some degree.... More

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a great continental breakfast. This was the cleanest hotel bathroom I've ever seen! We had a kitchenette and a fridge and a large spacious room. The only negative is the wifi. It was difficult to connect to and dropped connection frequently no matter where in the hotel you were.

We are currently staying here - will be a total of 4 nights and we are very happy with the choice. Historic building , good sized rooms, clean and comfortable. Laundry just down the street which is cheap and very handy if you are travelling. Grocery store right next door and it sells alcohol. Breakfast is basic but just fine... More

Well located for downtown and a quick cab to Fishermans Wharf. Rooms a reasonable size, clean and modern. Breakfast adequate, but get there early for a table. Price OK...nothing is cheap in San Francisco
