Loved the outdoor courtyards. There are two main houses which share a manicured courtyard. Everything was freshly painted. The kitchens (two) and rooms have the pottery barn appeal. We stayed in a tiny room. The walls are thin, making it possible to hear a snoring neighbor. There is also a commuter train that whizzes by around 7:00 a.m. The bathrooms could use some more shelves and/or hooks. The reception area needs an update as well to match the rest of the inn. Scott was a lovely host. He went out of his way to welcome us "home." The inn is within walking distance to the Castro as well as Noe Valley (albeit a very steep hill). If you are staying during the week and have a car, pay the extra $ for parking. It's a lot easier to find parking on the weekend near the inn.
