We are a family of 5 and stayed at the Carriage Inn on the 14th - 18th August. We had two rooms next door to each other both of which were very large and nicely decorated. They were both spotless and had tea and coffee making facilities. All the staff we encountered during our stay were polite and friendly, and... More

Negatives: area is dodgy, we felt unsafe at night. Very little information provided in the room e.g. Breakfast times, laundry service, check out times. Breakfast was a simple box including a piece of fruit, croissant, yoghurt and juice box that we had to fetch from reception, bean or cornflakes were absorbed in small tubs too. Gym is in the hotel...

For San Fran this was a great choice. Being a lot of older buildings throughout San Fran & most are an expensive stay, The Carriage in was great stay. We received a cheap rate booking well before our stay. The design has been created to match the buildings age, keeping this theme with the furniture pieces selected. The room had... More

Other than being surrounded by a sketchy, but non harmful neighbourhood, it is a pretty cool hotel. Retro interior and non-offensive themed rooms, hotel, rooms, bathrooms are very clean. Extremely friendly and accommodating service!.

I have never felt so pampered by the hotel staff at the Carriage Inn. Extremely courteous, helpful and pleasant. The room was in good condition with a personal touch, and named the old American personalities, actors and celebrities. The breakfast was not so fun though, a cardboard box holding a croissant, a banana, a juice and a yogurt (with gelatin... More

San Francisco in summer is not the cheapest place on earth....far far from it, but we weren't prepared to spend $500 a night on a bed so The Carriage Inn popped up on our radar. The only two things I was worried about from these reviews was the location and the noise. The place is well located at the south... More

Enjoyed my stay at the carriage and the price was good for the cleanliness/ decor/ and size of the room. This hotel would be a definite 5 of 5 if it were located in a little better/ more lively place. Not really within good walking/ stumbling distance to any good bars and pretty far from pier/ castro/ union square/ powell.... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Carriage Inn, and really it's a 4 out of 5 San Francisco option, which is a 3 out of 5 anywhere else (save for London, Paris, New York). What was great about it: > Spacious, clean rooms, a lot bigger than most > Very friendly front desk > Reasonable value for money in an... More

We stayed at this hotel for a vacation to San Francisco. My wife and I have never been to San Francisco before, and boy did we luck out with this place. It has a fantastic location in a gentrifying location of San Francisco, just 2 blocks from Market Street on 7th avenue. That intersection on Market has a BART station,... More
