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

We had a double room (i.e. double bed), while the rest of our group shared a quad room (2 bunk beds = 4 twins). The rooms were clean, as were the shared bathrooms. The breakfast (included in the price) offered a number of tasty options. There was also a computer and printer available (free). The staff were friendly and helpful.... More

Stayed two nights, really great area for cars and restaurants and easy transport to the waterfront. Staff were really friendly, lovely breakfast and cute rooms. My one reservation was that our second night was really noisy, whether from other guests or people coming out of bars on a Saturday night, so if you're a light sleeper like me you might... More

We stay here often - staff always friendly and helpful and new person Craig at the front desk so solicitous and willing to help in any way to make the stay enjoyable. (Craig is indicative of all the caring staff at Hayes Valley.) Love the sunny and pleasant breakfast room with all sorts of good foods. Good way to begin... More

This was a one nighter stay in the city for my wife & I. She insisted we stay at a B&B so I found this place. The room is nice and clean. However, parking is lacking. There's no parking whatsoever. It's either you find whatever is on the street or at the parking garage across around the corner. Also, I... More

Our stay at Hayes Valley Inn was a good one. The staff were helpful and friendly; the rooms were older and in line with pricing. The location is perfect with shopping and restaurants/bars in the area.

Finding a decent place to stay in SF within a reasonable budget is really tough. This hence becomes a fantastic option. Well located- a good 10 mins walk to the tram and buses are just down the block. Friendly people, clean but tiny rooms (the bed is really small for 2 people) helps to have the basin inside the room.... More

Lovely location and good value for money. The decor was a bit dated but the location more than makes up for that. Great restaurants and bars on the same block as well as loads of good places to shop within walking distance.

What a sweet little inn only 2 blocks from the opera. Quaint architecture, lovely neighborhood with many nice restaurants and bars. An amazing deal given its optimal location and breakfast is included! Breakfast room newly remodeled is sparkling and sunny. Very neat and tidy. Share a bath but well worth it given price. We will be back soon!

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.
