“Ultimate cozy hotel in San Fran”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Not only was the location fantastic, (super close to great shopping, restaurants & sights) but the entire hotel is so clean, cozy and comfortable. The breakfast and complimentary happy hour were great. But the best of all is the staff, everyone were exceptionally warm and welcoming, helping us with what ever we needed. And do not leave with out meeting Wayne the Inn Keeper. he has so much knowledge about every aspect of San Fran, and he's a great guy to have a drink with at the happy hour!

We stayed in this hotel for one night. Ann at the front desk was fabulous! She found out we were celebrating my boyfriend's 50th birthday and had champagne, chocolates and a rose sent up to the room!
Great location, very comfortable bed.
The hotel is older but very nice. Continental breakfast was average. Evening wine and cheese was very good!

Room Tip: The only con is the elevator is very small. I chose to take the stairs, even though it was 4 flight...

I have stayed in many many hotels worldwide in my time and Inn On The Square, San Francisco has to go down as one of the best ever. The hotel is ideally located a few steps from Union Square with all its shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Our room was comfortable, spaceous, spotlessly clean and so quiet and peaceful. The management and staff are extremely welcoming and provide the highest standards of hotel service and helpfulness in getting the the best out of our visit to San Francisco, even bookking tickets for us on the spot. A lovely complimentary continental breakfast is provided which we took to our rooms, a rarity I find, in America, there is even a daily wine and hors d'oeuvres party, also complimentary. Coffee, tea and fruit are available at all times. In the end we didn't want to leave, my wife and I both highly recommend this hotel and will certainly stay there again if we return to San Francisco.

This small hotel was fantastic - we can't say anything bad about it. Our suite was lovely and large, with free bubbles (great surprise). All the staff were friendly and Wayne the Inn Keeper is a bundle of knowledge and very entertaining. Lovely breakfast and very welcoming evening wine and nibbles after a day's walking, cycling etc. Very close to Union Square, shops and great restaurants. This was our final hotel after a 5 week holiday and very hard to leave - HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL.

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite, which was a very quiet rear room and a good size.

This hotel does not look like much, sandwiched into a very narrow building indeed. However, it is warm, welcome, friendly, and the folks who work here really are consciously helpful. Though there was no real office work space, they were very supportive when we took over one of the brunch areas all day in order to work. The rooms are bigger than you would think from the hall sizes (which are really incredibly narrow!). Overall, I would not hesitate to stay here again at any point.

Room Tip: Many of the rooms have light-bearing windows, with only a view of a brick wall a meter away. This i...

We had our best hotel experience here! Everyone we came into contact with was exceptionally nice and helpful. We were expecting big city feel but received a small town welcome! From the amazing breakfast to the wine reception, fresh baked cookies and turn down service with bottled water and chocolates every night we had trouble going home! Thanks Wayne for your amazing hospitality and suggestions of things to do/see and eat in the city. We loved the boutique feel of the hotel and thought it was exceptionally clean. The hotel has a super great location on a quiet side street but right downtown in the middle of everything. Everyone was so nice and helpful from booking our hotel room to reserving a cab for our departure we sure felt spoiled! Thanks again for everything. We'd make a trip back to the city just to stay here again!

I had a great time staying here, the staff are great, very helpful, very friendly. The room is small, but I feel it's ok not an issue. The room is clean and very comfortable. Location is good. There's no air-conditioning in the room, just a ceiling fan, when we went, the weather was cool so it was ok. So if it's really hot outside, it might be an issue for some. I would still recommend people to stay here. It's a cute hotel with great friendly, very helpful staff.
