The best thing this little inn has going for it is where it's located. Washington Sq is a happening area and it's also fairly close to nearby attractions. Beyond this I would probably not stay here again. The exterior is very welcoming as well as the lobby but the rooms are tiny; although you would probably expect this in the middle of San Fran. As stated in the title of my review, you will not get a full breakfast here. They leave a slip under your door which you fill out and hang on the outside handle. The menu mostly consists of granola, yogurt, toast, juice and coffee. If you're fortunate enough to be staying on the weekends then bagels and lox are an option as well. Unfortunately we checked out on a Friday and didn't have the oppurtunity to partake. I will say however that the wine, cheese and olives they offer in the afternoon were quite tasty. Another drawback is the lack of air conditioning. San Fran is not a tradintionaly hot city weather wise but we happened to be staying during a record heat wave. A high of 85 degrees doesn't sound like much but it's warm for this area, especially when you are in a small tight building with no air flowing; it felt like an oven inside. Like I said previously this place is great for it's location but not much else. If I revisit the area I will probably look to stay elsewhere.
