Hayes st and all its cafes and restaurants are right on your doorstep. All forms of public transport are only a block away. You have to walk three or four blocks in any direction before you find a hill. Shared toilets and shower are super clean! A little noisy and rooms don't have shade blocker blinds but I think that's... More

Hayes Valley Inn isn't the most luxurious hotel but it really is comfort at its best. I'm not one for shared bathrooms and like a luxury on holiday, but with what is essentially a 'city break' this hotel is perfect. The rooms are homely, need a little updating, but on the whole comfortable and have everything you need. Breakfast is... More

My daughter and I recently spent a few nights at Hayes Valley Inn. We found it very clean and comfortable and despite my reservations about a share bathroom and toilet this was not a problem. The 'help-yourself-breakfast' was lovely fresh fruit, cereals, cheese, ham and delicious muffins. Hayes Valley Inn will truly be part of our treasured memories of our... More

This is a European style b & b in every sense. Our room was small but clean and well appointed. It has a sink in it. The shower and toilets are shared. We did not have any trouble with this as we are very early risers but when we came back to our room from breakfast there was a couple... More

Loved the service, breakfast and the European style hotel. They were very accomdating. Flew in and took metro to subway stop and walked a couple blocks and I was there. Make sure to download the bus transit application for your smart phone. This really made it easy to see when the next bus was coming, bonus it includes use of... More

Love this place... Stayed twice in past year - once with husband and once with granddaughter... Location is awesome - close to BART and other public transportation - walking distance to many neighborhoods. Very clean, never a wait to use shared bathrooms, great breakfast room with view of neighborhood, extensive continental breakfast options and cookies in the afternoon (which my... More

Hayes Valley Inn is centrally located in a great area which is bohemian and known for its unique blend of restaurants and one-off boutiques, wine shops and tree lined residential streets. The hotel is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Our room was compact but perfectly adequate. Sharing bath and loo facilities in the corridor was novel but no trouble. Added to... More

Its clean but noisy and the staff are very busy at all times which meant our room wasn’t available when we checked in and we had to negotiate with them to NOT have to take a downgrade in room. Bit of a joke really. BEDBUGS: I went to bed on Sunday night and woke up literally covered in insect bites.... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
