“Just wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

My husband and I are big supporters of B&B's. Needless to say, we've had our fair share of the good, bad and ugly of this aspect of local hospitality.
The short version: If you want a delicious ( organic) breakfast, a great location, a spacious, clean room - look no further.
The long version: We were in SF for 5 days and were so in love with this place:
SWEETEST host: Yong was such a delight! He is truly an old soul from another lifetime and we had such great conversations about life and travel. He knows the city really well and will help you get about most efficiently!
- AWESOME location: on the corner of Market/Castro - across the street from the Castro Mkt MUNI), a block from a bunch of great restaurants and bars, and the tram service that takes you virtually everywhere in the city
YUMMY breakfast: Freshly made hot entree, HEALTHY without being bland, organic, complemented with generous portions of fruit, yoghurt, baked goods, juice/coffee/tea
GREAT service: We requested our shower head to be change and it was taken care of within the hour!
I mean..what more can you ask for! Don't waste your $$ on an impersonal, overpriced hotel chain. Come here!!

Room Tip: The Biblioteca is right at the back, has a king bed and is really quiet.

My wife and I had a perfect weekend here. It's like having your own home base in the fun Castro area. Stayed in the white room, amazing view. Bonuses: Decanter of free whiskey and a little fridge stocked with free drinks. Lots of books to borrow. Epic breakfasts. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: White room has a great view

I had several days of business in the Castro and wanted something close and convienient. The Inn on Castro met all my needs. Easy walking distance, good public transportation and accomodatring staff. Charming old inn, the real San Francisco expierience. I will stay there again.

I stay at the Inn whenever I travel to San Francisco. The location is great and the food and service are excellent. I Highly recommend it to anyone traveling to San Fran. It is like a home away from home.

Having lived in the Bay Area prior to my visit back this last weekend, I knew of the Inn on Castro. However, I did not know how lovely it is inside. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, the food, the other guests, the owner, and the patio. This place is a great value in a great location!!

Room Tip: Loved the Patio Room...spacious and with use of the patio!

We stayed in the apartment on 322 Douglas Street, Inn on Castro. The apartment is in a great location, clean and decorated nicely. We loved the wifi, location, and the addition of a sitting room. This is a great place to stay if you need more than one bedroom.

Our only complaint is that it was not made clear to us that the apartment was a 10 minute walk from the Inn. We arrived at the Inn by taxi from the airport and then were told we would have to either walk or take another taxi to the apartment. It would have been more welcoming after a long flight and $45 taxi ride for the Inn to arrange to meet us at the apartment with keys or at the least to let us know that the apartment was not on the same property as the Inn.

Other than that small issue, the Inn on Castro apartment was great and i would definitely stay there again and recommend it to other travelers.

This B&B could be a model of what would be a better hotel management in USA. The staff is friendly and efficient, the room is wide and the bed of extremely good quality. The street is quiet and the place very close to Haight Ashbury and Castro (Walking distance) . The F tram is at a few meter from your room and goes to fisherman wharf without changing line. The breakfast is a must: home made cake, fruits, eggs with various and delicious preparation.. European quality in USA..
