We found this place on trip advisor for a 2 night stop in SF before we caught a flight to Vegas. We had already been to SF in this trip and stayed in Union Square. We just wanted a place to lay our heads and be central base to relax. The reason we chose this place was price , the...

Everything was as we expect. THe room was great, with a great view and bed. The Staff is very helpfull, they are great people. The breakfast is simply but very OK to start a long day visiting SF. The only think that is not so good is that the bathroons are share.

Pros: 1. Location and value.. Hard to beat the price to stay in downtown SF.. So many shops and restaurants around the area.. takes only minutes to get to all the downtown sites. 2. Clean - the hotel is a bit old, but very well maintained 3. Service - The staff was very helpful and informative Cons: 1. Parking.. They...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights and were very pleased with our experience. The staff was very helpful! The rooms are small but that did not bother us. We never had to wait for the restroom or shower. Everything was very clean! The breakfast and afternoon snacks were also very good. I really liked the Hayes Valley area. It...

A B&B in an area with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. The guests we met at breakfast (provided by the B&B) were from all over and interesting. However, our room had carpet and an accompanying funky, musty smell and the room was on the street side which was a real problem in terms of...

The Hayes Valley Inn is a great hotel to stay in while visiting San Francisco. It has a central location which makes visiting many of the different neighborhood easy and it is also located close to the bus lines and the bart station. The neighborhood shops and restaurants close by this hotel where excellent. The staff was very helpful. The...

We spent 4 nights at the Hayes Valley Inn on vacation. We wanted to be right in the city (we did not rent a car) and be in walking distance to interesting restaurants, entertainment, and one-of-a-kind shopping. We got it all with the Hayes. The staff is great! The rooms are small, but sufficient, and very clean (with a sink...

Other reviews here attest to the great location, the friendly staff, the bountiful breakfast buffet, the affordability of the rates, the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms. All of that is true. In addition, the Hayes Valley Inn is a great place to see how you feel about shared hotel bathrooms. The bath/shower rooms and the toilet rooms are tiny...

Fantastic, helpful, and friendly staff, gorgeous rooms, and excellent service. The inn is centrally located as well, so it's easy to reach virtually everything. And in spite of being right next to a busy street, there's actually much less street noise than I had expected. The room was a very good price for everything you get, and overall, I could...

I was wary about the place because of the shared bathrooms...but that proved to be an unfounded worry! The place is exceptionally neat, and the bathrooms are very clean and conveniently located. The rooms are small, but who needs a big room when you're spending all day checking out one of the world's great cities? There's a good free breakfast...

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.
