Loved our stay at this hotel. Our room was a junior suite, there wasn't much of a view but we weren't in our hotel room that often so it didn't matter. Complimentary breakfasts were great, and food plentiful. Most of the time we sat in the breakfast area but if it was too busy we took our coffee and goodies... More

What a great boutique hotel. From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel totally welcome. The Front Desk staff was very cordial and very eager to please. When our room key didn't initially work, the maid walking by didn't ignore us, she promptly helped us out. What a concept, that the staff seemed to genuinely enjoy their... More

After reading reviews, my husband and I booked this hotel. The location was perfect and everyone we interacted with at the hotel was courteous and helpful. The room was quiet and comfortable. We especially enjoyed all the "extra" services included: daily newspaper, free Wifi, breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese. We would definitely stay in this hotel again. Perfect for... More

Nice little hotel in a great location, staff were very friendly and helpful. Although they advertise it, we didn't get turndown service either of the nights we were there. Very noisy gathering outside our room one afternoon for the wine & cheese offering; this went on much later then the set time. Mentioned to reception on our way out, they... More

The room is small as is the bathroom but the welcome and service are huge! Although small, the rooms are perfectly comfortable with all the amenities you would want and... More

Stayed 3 nights during our road trip from Vancouver to Santa Barbara. San Francisco is expensive, Union Square especially so. That said, The Inn is decent value and perfectly located. We paid a few extra $ for a larger room. We got a large, quiet, clean room with good water pressure and a window that opened for fresh air but... More

This is my first ever visit to the city of San Francisco. I did not know what to expect and was very happy when a dear friend recommended this hotel. We stayed one night on the way to San Jose where my husband was working, and a final weekend before we flew home to the UK. We have been charmed... More
