This is truly a charming B&B, with a lovely garden, beautiful furnishings, and an excellent breakfast made to order... so why did I give it only 3 stars?
Well, if you and/or your bedmate toss and turn a bit, or get up during the night, you are bound to disturb the other person because the entire bed moves every time you do! This resulted in a terrible night for us, earning only 1 star in the sleeping department. Since the rest of our experience rated 4 or 5 stars, the overall rating was a 3.
However, this place is very nice if your sleep tends to be sound, peaceful and uninterrupted.

Going to keep this review short and sweet.
Stayed here in February with my husband - first visit to SF.
Very quaint. Very welcoming. Very helpful. Perfect location. Perfect hosts. Perfect stay.
Little odd not having a dining room, ate breakfast in lounge at individual tables - alas, weather not nice enough to sit outside. But what wonderful breakfasts. And it was nice being so informal, chatting with the other guests, swopping tips and suggestions as to places to visit. Coming back after a hard day sightseeing, sitting in the lounge with a glass of wine and cheese and biscuits befor getting ready to go to one of the many restaurants nearby. Heaven. Don't worry about not being downtown - the bus service is regular and cheap with a travel pass purchased at the airport. We went everyway by bus, tram, and cable car. Special thanks to Kit who managed to rearrange the room bookings so the we could stay there.

This was our first extended stay at a B&B and it was just wonderful from start to finish. Everyone we talked to was friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were awesome and we loved eating in either the garden or in the house. The other guests were fun to converse with over breakfast or a glass of wine in the evenings and the charm of the house and neighbourhood were the best we've had in San Francisco.

Nearby Chestnut street has good restaurants, nice boutiques and transit is fine from this location, bus is quick and we walked to the pier easily. We've stayed in Union square before and we much prefer this location, more locals, less busy and better food.

We stayed with our 13 year old daughter in the Golden Gate room, it was large and comfortable and the windows are pretty good to block out noise. If it was just the two of us, I'd try to stay in a back room next time for a bit of a quieter location but it was still pretty quiet in the front. The bathrooms could use updating and it would be nice if the decor matched more to the rooms but this wasn't really an issue that would warrant a lesser rating.

I wouldn't recommend someone with very young children staying here as it would maybe disturb the other guests and could be bothersome to the people staying there who enjoy the adult company of the other guests. I thought of this when we were there, that we liked the peacefulness of the place and loud children would've ruined the experience. It just seemed like more of an adult atmosphere and fine for teens.

The cookies were yummy and thanks to Kit for her recommendation on the Italian shop that carries the rooster creamers. I picked up two and they are a cherished souvenir to remind me of the wonderful time we had at The Union Street Inn. We will be back!

Room tip: The cottage in the back would be amazing if it's available

The Union Street Inn is an oasis of calm for in the middle of San Francisco. The quintessential bed & breakfast, it's what you would expect to find in a much more rural setting – the best of both worlds. Its location on busy Union Street is within walking distance of most every major attraction, as well as being right on the public transportation routes if walking isn't your thing.

The hosts, Jane and Dave, are charming, conversational and familiar, making for a very pleasant visit. They and Herb provided us accurate information for places to visit, and recommendations for dining based on our mood. The ambiance of the Union Street Inn is a direct reflection of them. The best, however, are Jane's breakfasts served in a perfect garden behind the house or in the main parlor. We were treated to Eggs Benedict, Homemade Waffles, Frittata with bacon, and Smoked Salmon. All were served with fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit and excellent coffee. Without doubt, better than most breakfasts you would find in a restaurant. Late afternoon treats include fresh fruit, wine and cheese. And cookies are always there for the taking.

The property is located in a charming, century old house and thus lacks some of the modern conveniences. For example it is a one-flight walk up to get to the main floor where some of the rooms are located. If you're on the top floor another flight of stairs must be negotiated. This can be a challenge if your bags are heavy. Parking is also off site, two blocks away, but the inns negotiation of $15/day fee for parking is very reasonable for the city. With that being said, the old world charm of the inn by far surpasses any of the inconveniences. The inn is decorated with a collection of antique furniture perfectly suited to its atmosphere. Most of the rooms appeared nice in size; however, we were in the "Holly" room, which from our observations of the other rooms seems to be the smallest. It was a bit tight for two of us with bags. Our room was clean and well kept but the bed was a bit soft for sleeping.

We would not hesitate to recommend the Union Street Inn. We are always looking for the exceptional and out of the ordinary when we travel and the Union Street Inn did not disappoint. Fairly priced, a good value for the amenities and location, and hosts who made for a memorable experience.

The title of this review is completely self-explanitory and entirely true! My husband and I chose Union Street Inn for a getaway much needed from the Southeast. We found just that! From comfort to quality, from location to ease of transportation, from customer service and the utmost care, we highly reccommend Union Street Inn!
