Charming hotel in a great location. Large rooms which could do with a bit of updating but perfectly acceptable and clean. Continental breakfast makes a good start to the day although it did get a but hiring after a few days with a limited selection. Overall extremely good value for money and would definitely stay again.

Stayed 3 nights on basis of TA reviews May 11, very happy with this hotel. Had upgraded 'queen' room which worth it, very good value for central SFO, where alternative is to pay nearly double for modern hotel soulless room. Didnt see standard rooms but our facilities were as per hotel web site, quiet comfortable room where we were able to fully recover from jetlag. View of city not very scenic but much better than a ventilation shaft/light well which has been our experience elsewhere. Room had ceiling fan, cant remember if there is any aircon, but opening windows are a bonus in our view. Hotel and rooms are well used but interesting (murals on walls), pretty basic furnishings but all spotless. Staff very helpful but sometimes busy, unsurprising in a small hotel

My friend and I were very pleasantly surprised by our 4-day stay at the Mayflower. The room was very spacious (kitchenette, 2 walk in closets, a desk and 2 beds) and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast is basic, but has excellent baked goods and apples. While this isn't a fancy hotel, it has it's charms (old fashioned elevator) and is clean. My only complaint is that the wifi connection was nil to non-existent most of the time. But even still - it's a really good bargain hotel in the centre of San Francisco.

Stopped here on my travels up the coast with my kids. Hotels are quite pricey this time of year, buy we got a decent deal here. The staff was some what rude, and void of emotion. But, the rooms were clean, and while it was out of the way it wasn't too bad. I recommend this for quick travelers on the go.

I managed to choose the Bay to Breaker's weekend to stay in San Fran. All of Union Square seemed to be booked out. I was lucky to find a place sleep, and doubly lucky to stay at the Mayflower. Staff were friendly, rooms very clean - bed made and new towels each day. TV. Heater was adjustable. Mayflower market is next door, so a few deli snacks to put in the bar fridge. Also included is a continental breakfast.
If you need a hairdryer or corkscrew :) they have them down at the front desk.

My mam and I have stayed at the Hotel Mayflower twice in the last 8 months and we love it. It is such a friendly atmosphere and very much feels like being at home. The rooms are great and have everything you need. The Hotel is in a really nice area (Nob Hill) and is only a couple of blocks to Union Square (all downhill). There is a great deli next door for you to stock your fridge in the room with snacks/drinks etc. The breakfasts are just what you need for a great start to the day and the fresh baked cookies and cakes are the best (Thanks Hester). Plenty of restaurants nearby too. The owner and staff are very friendly, down to earth and extremely helpful. We will be back to San Francisco many times and we would not stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: 518 and 514
