I used to live in the City for 20 years and have referred people to this place many times over the years and decided to try it myself on my next trip. I was very pleased with the reservation process and the information they provided on the room and the parking situation If you are driving and checking in I... More

The best little guest house in the city by far. Wonderful staff and comfortable clean rooms with great breakfast, all for a really reasonable price . Centrally based on 14th near Castro and the old Mint building . A short tram ride down market to the wharves. You won't be disappointed . Anything u need- just ask the staff. They... More

It was a comfortable stay of 9 nights in SF from 12-21 Aug 2016. The place was nicely furnished, coming across as comfy. The room I stayed in had enough space to not feel cramped in. Staff were professional and helpful. Great location, less than 1 min walking distance from Church station, and good eats around the area. A downside... More

I was recommended to the Willows Bed and Breakfast by a gay friend who was local to SF. It did not disappoint. Though I was in a room facing the street, the traffic noise did not bother me, the sunlight streaming through the windows did! All the rooms I think share a bath, but this was not a problem as...

I knew I was in good hands when I received very quick confirmation for the dates that I wanted and this set the tone for a great stay. My room was scrupulously clean with a really comfortable bed and for people with worries about shared showers/toilets - don't! Both were always available when I wanted them and always very clean....

Clean room, friendly staff, impeccable all round. They serve the best continental breakfast around -- fresh fruit, quality granola, and great coffee. Ideally located on the line between the Mission and the Castro, near the Muni station. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in San Francisco!

We stayed in the Willows Bed and Breakfast Inn for a total of 11 days (a weekend away over the period) in April-May 2016. It suited us perfectly. We loved the conviviality of chatting with other guests over breakfast (great variety - lots of fruit, cereals, pastries, breads, yoghurts, etc), and, when we could, relaxing with our hosts and other...

Just got back from a week at The Willows over Easter weekend and can't wait to go back. I was initially unsure about the shared shower rooms but in reality they're not a problem and are kept scrupulously clean by the team. Breakfast is really good and it's good to meet other guests rather than just sitting in a hotel... More

What a great B&B! We always try to stay in a B&B on our travels because they provide the most personable experiences. We were a little apprehensive about The Willows because the nightly rate for our room was so much less than we expected, and they only asked us to pay for the first night when we made our reservations....

Staying in The Castro

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.
