My friend and I only stayed one night at The Willows Bed and Breakfast Inn,we were meeting out of town guest for dinner at R and G Lounge located in China Town, (Excellent family style Chinese food). Upon arriving we were unable to find parking on the street, no worries though because we had requested parking. At $15.00 per night, it's a real bargain. I lived in S.F. for 8 years and my friend is a S.F. Native. We are in our fifty's now and had no desire to search the neighborhood for parking.
Long story short, I will say we enjoyed our stay. We wanted to try something other than a traditional hotel stay. I give The Willows a four dot rating of "Very Good" because the water closets, and showers were well maintained and clean. The rooms were also clean, the sink inside your room is a wonderful amenity. The small in room refrigerator is convenient, especially with Safeway located on the opposite corner. The kitchen on the top floor where breakfast is served was clean. The offerings for breakfast were plentiful and great for starting your day.
We stayed in room 32, which is on the top floor facing the street. Although the room was very clean, the street odor was noticeably coming through the front windows. We were not afraid of the street noise, we actually welcomed it. But the stench from the street was not welcomed at all. Thankfully, it either rained or it was low fog that night that helped wash away some of the stench. Perhaps washing down the side walk in front of the property would help this issue in the future. ( I know the Inn has little control over what happens on the street, due to the large homeless population in S.F.) This is just a suggestion.
Lastly I am not a morning person, therefore, I don't expect anyone to be overly chipper in the morning. However, I do believe in being courteous. I believe in returning a good morning or greeting someone with an appropriate salutation, whether it be a guest or staff. I believe that staff should endeavor to do the same. I don't want to mention names...everyone has an off day. Just mentioning it as a heads up for staff. Other than the issues mentioned above, I would definitely recommend this B&B.
