“Great location, great place- everything you could ask for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Booked 3 nights for my stay in SF
Booked here on the basis of price and ratings
I was not disappointed,
Checkin was very efficient- I was given a map and major sights/ landmarks noted. It was clear that the castle was in a great location- just of Van Ness, on a major bus route and made the main sights easily accessible.

My room was lovely, 2 beds, TV, micro, fridge, coffee maker. Plenty of power sockets, nicely furnished. Bed was very comfy, room very clean, shower was super, nice and powerful with adjustable head and soft flannels, towels. Free wifi which was fast and reliable. Heater operated fine.

Free parking, although this was limited so maybe worth phoning ahead if you plan to checkin late

Breakfast was coffes, juice, oat bran, pastries, yogurt and fruit.

Room was nice and quiet, no disturbance. Service throughout my stay was excellent. Can't recommend this place enough!

My stay at Castle Inn was really great. it is very close to the bus station, and arriving earlier than the check-in time I had no problem leaving my suitcase at the front desk. The hotel is very close to Van Ness Avenue, one of San Fran's main streets, the Marina is a 20 minute walk, Chinatown and other neighborhoods in close proximity.
The staff was very friendly, the room was great - mine being on the third floor I was able to see the tip of the Golden Gate Bridge from my window, the bed was huge, everything was clean, and the price was more than reasonable.
I will definitely stay here when I return to SF and would highly recommend to anyone!

We had two nights on a short trip in San Francisco,
The hotel suited us due to the proximity to all the major places, the most important was the parking and reasonable price.
The hotel staff was kind and helped us to orient ourselves in places of entertainment close to the hotel.

The room was very spacious, included a mini fridge, dressing area, and a fresh pleasent smell. Clean, quiet, and safe FREE parking. You can't ask for more than that in San Francisco. For the price this is a top notch place to stay! We will be back and I would refer friends.

Loved staying here, the staff were so friendly and helpful. It's a nice safe location close to restaurants and bars, about a half hour walk to pier 39. We stayed upstairs which was nice and quiet, free parking was great. Rooms were comfortable and clean, no complaints :)

Our stay at the Castle Inn was fabulous. We lived on Russian Hill for 20 years, so we were familiar with the neighborhood, and the location is terrific. Not only that, free parking, under cover, is guaranteed. Those things alone are worth the price in San Francisco, but in the Castle Inn, the room was comfortable and the service quite satisfactory.

We booked at this Inn on 4-Mar-2014 for 2 nights, awesome stay excecpt the a/c didn't work in room 114. Other than that the room was awesome, clean and 1 floor up from the office on the side. There was free parking below us and right in front was another building with few windows and it was very quiet. The manager give us a map and maked the key places to go and the bus/cable line to take. Walking distance to EVERY THING. Great local stores just down the street including a bagel shop a pet shop, store and pharmacy's. There is an elevator which is awesome and they have a breakfast but we never tried it. The one thing I really noticed were the large pots of flowers and trees really made the place cozy. I would stay there again that's for sure They just need to work on the a/c for air circulation.

Room Tip: room 114 was very quiet but the a/c didn't work in that it didn't cool the room down at all...
