Best place we found in the Castro district. Very clean and very nice workers. Great breakfast prepared each morning was a nice touch. Close to everything along with the Muni and the F line trolley cable cars. Will stay here in a heartbeat!

Stayed November 2013, travelled with friends

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn and will surely return. Jan and the staff were so welcoming and accommodating; our room was comfortable, charming, and spotlessly maintained; and the location was ideal for us and so close to public transportation. The breakfasts were delicious with an ever changing selection of cooked entrees, fresh baked breads, and fresh fruit. Our experience could not have been any better.

This place is adorable and the owner is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. It's in a great central location. There's tons to do right in the Castro and it's right near the muni station for easy travel elsewhere. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the atmosphere is very comfortable as welcoming. For the location and services the price is significantly more affordable than comparable hotels. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to San Francisco

We chose the Inn on Castro because of its proximity to family members and because of the great reviews. Jan and the staff were professional and friendly. The rooms/building was very well maintained and clean. The cooked breakfast selections were yummy and paired with fresh fruits and delicious breads daily. There are metro lines nearby. Checking in was a smooth process. Street parking might be difficult. The rooms/baths are comparable in size to other B&Bs we've stayed at in the area. You should not expect huge bathrooms.

Room Tip: The ground floor is convenient, having a private bath is a plus and I like rooms with window views o...

This B&B has so many good things that it's hard to begin. First, the location is very good, in the middle of the gay district, and with both the historic F-line (to Wharves) and the metro within 50m from the inn. Second, the staff is very friendly and helpful, makes you feel right at home! They also prepare an excellent breakfast, by far the best I ever had at any B&B, and that by itself would be a good reason to stay here. The room I stayed in (brown) was fine: nothing too fancy, but clean and definitely big enough for one person. It has a separate bathroom, which for me was fine. The bathroom was also very clean.

All in all I had an excellent stay here and I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The Brown room is a bit noisy because of Castro street, but nothing earplugs can't solve.

I’ve stopped counting the number of times my partner and I have stayed at the Inn on Castro. The welcome is always warm and friendly making our visit more like a family reunion. The breakfasts are quite special. Not only for the more than adequate nourishment but also for the opportunity to meet new people from around the world. The breakfast conversations have been the start of a number of new friendships over the years. The rooms are comfortable, access to public transit just outside the front door, numerous restaurants within walking distance – all accolades, no complaints!

Jan and his staff: Melanie & Samuel are gems and made our stay quite comfortable. We look forward to future visits

Having stayed before in downtown San Francisco I really wanted to stay in one of the vibrant local neighbourhoods and selected Inn on Castro based on the great reviews.

My partner and I were in the patio suite which has a separate entrance to the main inn. It is actually in a converted garage and the room does have that feel about it with low ceilings and an odd room configuration. It had a lovely view over the garden.

Our room was comfortable and adequate. The bathroom is very small. There were some lovely personal touches including shower gel, water and soft drinks in fridge that were complimentary.

Overall feel was like staying at a friends place. I prefer my accommodation to be a little higher end but this was ok, in a great area and good value.
