The exterior belies the tranquil, clean and spacious setting inside. The property has lovely gardens and quaint seating areas all around. Our room was very clean and well appointed. Breakfast was great with lots of food options. We enjoyed our stay very much.

I almost don’t want to write a glowing review about this wonderful gem of a hotel because I’m afraid it will be full the next time I visit and I won’t be able to stay there. It’s a quietly, classy hotel, conveniently located in the Mission District. Comfortable bed with down comforter, extra blanket and heaters available if you’re cold. Common room has a fire in the fireplace on cold evenings. Nice size bathrooms, not cramped feeling at all for a boutique hotel. The continental breakfast is nothing special but with so many excellent coffee shops and restaurants nearby you’ll want to go out. They also have a small, wine happy hour which is a nice touch. Very friendly hotel management.

We had an absolutely beautiful stay at the Parker Guest House. The property is a peaceful oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the big city. The complex is gated and secure, and we felt very safe and comfortable staying there. The property is charming and has everything you need to feel right at home. We especially enjoyed dining in the beautiful courtyard and relaxing by the large fountain. We traveled a couple of hundred miles to San Francisco for my wife’s surgery at UCSF Parnassus campus. The manager (Michelle) went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Post-surgery, she checked on us several times to ensure everything went well. The Parker Guest House was also very close to the hospital which provided extra convenience. We would wholeheartedly recommend the Parker Guest House for anyone considering staying in San Francisco.

We had a wonderful stay as a couple at Parker Guest House. The staff greeted us cordially, giving us all the information we needed for our 5 day stay. They were quite gracious when we cancelled the parking space they had reserved for us. The room was so clean and the bed super comfortable. The prepackaged food for breakfast was tasty and convenient (unfortunally during these Covid days, we didn't get to experience what I'm sure would be a delicious breakfast meal). The best part was the beautiful courtyard with a number of intimate seating areas - we enjoyed a fun, warm evening relaxing under the arbors chatting, drinking and playing a game. Loved how close the B&B is to not only Dolores Park, but also within walking distance of 3 other parks (including Golden Gate Park (panhandle).

I came up to SF for a short weekend to see some family- but since everyone is quarantining I needed to find my own accommodations. Parker was one of the few places that seemed actually to be open, and welcoming. (Other hotels had super strict Covid restrictions). I felt safe and not at all at risk- they weren't booking people close together, and the common grounds are very open. They were even nice enough to upgrade me to a better room just because they had it avail. Everything was explained so nicely, and they're super easy to reach during the day if I had any questions. The only drawback for me were the pillows on the bed, they weren't what I normally use, and I'm really sensitive about my pillows. But otherwise, a very comfortable stay.
