“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

The Inn on Castro is simple amazing. The rooms are clean and well maintained, you are a block from public transit stops, and the community style breakfasts each morning are not only delicious but a great way to meet others and hear about their time in San Fran. The staff is beyond friendly and knowledgeable about the area and what to do while visiting. If you are visiting San Fran, you must stay at the Inn on Castro!

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the building, i.e. off the street, are a bit quiter.

This is my favorite place to stay in San Francisco! I get a feeling what it might be like to live in San Francisco when I stay there, and to me, that is far better than some large corporate hotel. This place is a hidden jewel. I love the style and decor of the Inn on Castro, and it is always spotlessly clean. Jan and his staff are wonderful and very helpful. The breakfasts are great! I can't say enough about how much I love this place, and I heartily recommend it!

This is an apartment with two bedrooms, one full and one half bath. It had a full kitchen, small balcony, garden access and living room. I rented for my sisters visit for 5 nights. It was comfortable and cosy. Parking was reasonable for San Francisco. Close enough to the Castro neighborhood for easy access to bars, restaurants, and public transportation. Far enough from the busy area to be quiet and give a neighborhood experience. Daily maid service is not provided as it is like renting an apartment. Staff was very accommodating. My only concern was the furnishings especially in the dining area and living room were badly in need of repair and updating. Chairs in the living room were uncomfortable. Dining table top was loose in danger of toppling. Most outlets in the kitchen did not work making it difficult to use toaster or charge cell phones. Neighbors next door had 2 or 3 small children who were noisy in the back yard. Did not bother me at all but some care more about that. It is just part of being in a neighborhood. I would definately rent here again, but would hope to find some updated furnishings.

We stayed at the B&B for 5 nights. I have never stayed at a B&B before & was a little apprehensive. This place was top notch!! It was clean, beds were comfortable,decor was nice. Breakfast every morning was delicious, restaurant quality, cooked to order. Jan & his staff were so nice, professional & helped make this a great experience. Would definitely stay here again & highly recommend it for anyone else.

My boyfriend and I recently spent the weekend in San Francisco and had a great time at the Inn on Castro! We stayed in the Green Room and it was the prefect spot, a super cute room with all the amenities we needed. We could not have asked for a better location, right near all the great restaurants and different things to do as well as a subway station to go anywhere in the city. The staff were all very friendly and made an excellent breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay here again if I go back to San Francisco!

Room Tip: We loved the green room, it was a little noisy from the street, but that did not bother us!
