Service, service, service! Every experience I had with this hotel, from altering my original reservation, to check in, to check out, wow what great customer service! The hotel is a small and clean conveniently located hotel in the Union Square area. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable, however these amenities should be expected from any... More

Stayed here for 4 days in July. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was as good as a Euro B&B. Location was central SF, near everything. Free WiFi worked great. The innkeeper is on top of everything and makes it a point to talk to as many guests as possible.

This hotel is small, no doubt about it, but I visited the "larger" hotels nearby and just really liked the feel of the Inn better. I appreciate the history of the building. I also thought this hotel was quiet. We were there in spring and did not need AC--actually we needed a little heat! Breakfasts were great, delicious granola, yogurt,... More

If you can handle the non A/C, then its great. Service was fantastic, helpful, internet connection was good, wine tastings, breakfast, great location, charming place. Enjoy it. If A/C is an issue, then its a bit tough. Nights are generally cool, but it was stuffy in the room even with two fans.

Our stay at the Inn at Union Square couldn’t have started off worse -- and couldn’t have ended better. We reserved and paid for our room in advance through a 3rd party website (with an “X” in its name) but when we checked in, we found out that the website cancelled our reservation without notifying us. It was midnight and... More

Great breakfast area on each floor. It's a small and tranquil place amid a lot of hustle and bustle. Comfortable beds and surprisingly really big rooms. The hallways and staircases are narrow. We didn't have a view but we were out all day and night. Double Decker bus tour picks up right out front. The valet park is a bit... More

We just returned from SF and spent two nights at the Inn. It is well located; near the heart of Union Square and within walking distance to Chinatown, the Embarcadaro and other popular sights. The inn offers many lovely amenities. The continental breakfast is great, coffee available throughout the day on each floor, a wonderful cocktail hour with quality wine,... More

We went on a vacation to San Francisco, and wanted to be near Union Square. This hotel definitely was that, so location is a plus. However, when we got to the room, it was so small. Even in the hallways downstairs you had to almost walk sideways to fit thru. This did not match the price tag, to be sure.... More

Most hotels want heads in beds. This cozy inn wants your head comfortable in their beds. From the ease of morning breakfast, the relaxation of wine and cheese for happy hour and the comfort of cookies and milk before bed, that's just the beginning. Ann was the one that helped us most and she was so incredibly helpful. From a... More
