We stayed with Jan in August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Inn is very comfortable, in a great location, and Jan provides a breakfast that will last you until dinner. The decor in the Inn is "eclectic 70s" but entirely comfortable. Don't expect the Marriott - the rooms all have their own quirks but I'd much prefer this place... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2016

A chance google search helped us find this gem of a B&B ! We have stayed here 3 times now. Each time has been a wonderful experience. We have stayed in the Red Room twice & the Garden Studio once. Friends have stayed in several other rooms as well. Each room is nicely layed out, with all the necessities, very... More

This B&B/guest house is very central to,the Castro district of SF. For the uninitiated Castro is very LGBT and just walking the streets is an entertainment in itself. On the plus side, Inn on Castro is central, has good street parking and multi-storey parking nearby, the host Jan is very helpful and the breakfasts around a communal table are excellent,... More

The service and ambiance at the Inn on Castro are outstanding. You're a stone's throw from all major public modes of transportation, and Jan is kind enough to sit down with a map (which you keep) and outline major art exhibits and other happenings that would be of interest to a visitor. The breakfast (cooked to order, no less) can't... More

We stayed 3 nights in this B&B. The location is great, in one of the must interesting and exciting district of San Francisco. The house is lovely, a typical San Francisco house and the room was well furnished and with a decent size. We were on the ground floor so it was slightly noisy on saturday night but it was... More

My Wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Inn on Castro for five nights. I had stumbled on the Inn 5 years before and was keen to stay again. The Inn is located in the Castro district close to shops and restaurants. If you like to walk it is only a 15 - 20 minute walk to... More

These aren't my words - they are the words of my daughter. She has just left, and is travelling for some time yet. She was so thrilled with this place that she sent me photos of the breakfasts!! A change of plans meant she wanted to stay on. This place was fully booked (understandably!) but Jan was SO helpful in... More

I have been to this B&B several times since my son lives nearby. It is in the heart of the Castro so plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. Breakfasts are spectacular and it's fun chatting with other guests. My room had it's own garden so on a nice day, in between sight-seeing, it's a relaxing place to be. Jan is... More

Neighborhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
