Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great place to stay near Union Square. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was a bit small but still suitable for our needs. Can't beat the price for the location. Breakfast was OK - minimal bagels and small pastries and fruit.

The hotel is very close to Union square but just far enough to not be bothered by it. The rooms are nice and upgraded, there’s living rooms on each floor, and breakfast is included. Angela is super nice at the front desk and always makes me feel welcomed and at home. The hotel feels more cozy and homely than just a room. Always coming back!

Everything about our stay was perfect! The cleanliness, the comfort of the bed, the extremely friendly staff (Jakara, Angela and Mary Jane). My husband and I will be coming back to this Inn for future visits! I cannot recommend this place enough, tons of character, nothing like those boring hotels.

Location, location, location on this one. Very very convenient. Rooms are clean and pleasant and quiet. Bed was comfortable and the shower was great. Plenty of towels. Staff is friendly. If I had one knock it would be that the breakfast that is served is pretty bad. The bagels are plain store-bought tasteless things. And the Danish's reminded me of the kind you get at the gas station. Other than that, recommend this hotel. Will stay here again.

This is by far one of the nicest boutique hotels that we have stayed. It’s quiet, spotlessly clean, with great linens, extremely comfortable bed and a very spacious king suite. Conveniently located to many restaurants and a plethora of high end shops. China Town is a short walk away. Great continental breakfast with orange juice, assorted pastries, yogurts, bagels with butter, cream cheese and assorted jams, fresh fruit and coffee and tea. Staff is very friendly and happy to assist in any way. This hotel is great value for the money. Skip the big hotels and stay here. You will not regret it!

Amazingly nice rooms, very quiet and very clean. This is now my go to hotel here in San Francisco. I have a business event at the Fairmont, but if I’m coming here on my dime, this is an exceptional value. I usually don’t like to stay in the union Square area, but it is doing much better. Additionally, the hotel feels very safe..

We stayed in the Speckels Suite for 4 nights. The hotel is tiny and the front desk staff are very friendly. The location is great. The two room suite was terrific - especially the very large bathroom with a great shower. Three things to note: although the listing for the suite says there is a fireplace, it is not usable (nor are the fireplaces in the little sitting rooms on each floor); there is no view; and the breakfast is minimal - coffee plus plain bagels and pastries. Overall, the Inn is very comfortable and we would stay again,
