Friendly helpful staff. Rooms are clean but the bathroom and bedding could use a sprucer. If you want a hotel of the "old San Francisco" this is for you. Good location a few blocks from cable car and next door to a supermarket.

….well not quite, but it was a mix of good and bad. We checked, as always, on Tripadvisor before we booked and patently ignored the bad comments and looked instead at the price. Good points: - in Nob Hill which is 'central' but, as the name suggests, hilly. - an old and 'quirky' building. I like the old…I was a... More

I stayed at Hotel Mayflower in August 2012 and loved my experience there. I asked for a quiet room and they gave me just what I asked for. It was a clean, large room on the 6th floor and had a nice view. The staff were extremely friendly - the lady at the front desk gave me a map and... More

We rented 2 rooms for 2 nights here recently and were quite pleased. It's not a four-star hotel but it does have character and is more than adequate. I loved the old elevators. I felt like I was in a European hotel especially at breakfast. It was easy to get around from here. You are very close to the dodgier... More

Built in 1929 and still very much in it's original condition, the Mayflower seems only to get better with age. I first stayed there -- and reviewed it -- several years ago, and decided to drop back in on a recent trip to SF to see how the old gal's getting along. As before, my stay was delightful. OK, I...

Visited this hotel for the second time, this time only together with my son. If you can fit your car into their parking lot, this is a great plus. In addition, everything is of the same level and of course when their friendly staff already knows you, it becomes even better. Highly recommended!

This little hotel was our home away from home for three nights, and we found it to be clean and comfortable. We stayed in a suite, which was a one bedroom with separate living area and small kitchen and bathroom with bath. We had a toddler and it was perfect for us. The kitchen and bathroom were all kids friendly... More

"It is what it is" This is the motto posted behind the reception desk, and it sort of establishes the bar. And it was: comfortable, a little shabby but clean. The breakfast was OK, the bed comfortable, the cranky old elevator definitely a plus, in my opinion, being a little old and cranky myself. We were a little disappointed to... More

Stayed for five nights in March, and found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. The desk staff were helpful when asked 'touristy' questions. Be aware that the 'hairdryers' in the rooms, as listed under the amenities, consists of an ancient, powerless hairdryer that is brought to your room, on request.

We stayed one night after arriving in San Francisco late. We had read the earlier reviews and knew the Mayflower was a grand old lady, The elevators with the metal gates hearkened to a bygone era. The room was large enough and the bed comfortable. The lobby is beautiful and the staff attentive. Great location in Nob Hill and close... More
