You will love this if u don't mind having a bathroom down the hall, and having a shared help yourself breakfast area. Apart from that i would say its like when you hear for the first time the E.T joke...you know the one, what is E.T short for? He has little legs! When you hear it you laugh and enjoy... More

My partner and I had a great time at Hayes Valley Inn. It definitely represents good value for San Francisco. The rooms were big enough for us (was enough room for a bed, basin, closet and 2 large suitcases on the floor) and the bed was comfortable. The tv is smaller than most hotels but this was not important to... More

Hayes Valley Inn is such a unique little B&B in San Fran. The hotel room is small, but so homey. Thats my favorite. We also brought my little aussie sherpard, and the staff was totally cool about her being there! They are also in a great location too! Great cafes, coffee shops, clothing and book stores... the works. I can't... More

I arrived on a Saturday evening. A friend called ahead to find out where I should park and I was instructed to park in the performing arts garage. As there was an Opera the evening, there was a line of cars entering and I entered along with them. I missed the signs that said it would be closing and locking... More

I stayed for 4 nights at this inn. It is similar to a hostel, but much nicer. You get your own room with a sink, shower and bathrooms are shared on the floor. I never had to wait for a shower or a bathroom to use. By the way, there is no sink or soap in bathrooms, but they do... More

The best thing of this hotel is definitely the location. It is located in a safe area, very close to the bus station which takes you to Union Square (you can also walk - 15 min max, but it's not advisable, because it is dangerous). There are several restaurants and bars at just 3 minutes from the hotel and 2... More

I stayed here with my bf on his first visit to SF- we were on a budget and were looking for a step up from shared hostel rooms and a step down from pricey hotels. This place was perfect. You do have to share a bathroom with other gusts- there is a toilet and a shower (in different room) on... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in February and had a very pleasant experience. Continental breakfast was the same every day but well stocked with fruits, greek yogurt, granola, etc. Plus breakfast started early at 7am so we could eat and start exploring early. There was one shower on our floor and 2 separate toilets- we woke up early every... 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.
