Had a great stay at the Inn San Francisco. It is a beautiful place. The rooms are large and well decorated. The mattress is comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast includes a large spread of fresh fruit, pastries, quiche and can be eaten in the rear garden or rooftop garden with a great view if SF....

The people here are so kind and helpful. Made you feel like family. Comfortable living room area. Great continental breakfast too. The only problem was the bed was not comfortable...they need to invest in comfort mattresses. Plus, ask for a room off the main street as the noise is very loud and sirens run all night.

Unhappy to hear you found our bed uncomfortable. Perhaps the feather bed was "tired" in your room. We will check it out. Wonderful to hear though that the staff were kind and wonderful. Marty

Can only agree with what others have said, but I would add that the service was excellent, having met the owner Marty, who stayed a bit longer to help me both find the place (went to Van Ness rather than South Van Ness) and keep a parking place and showed me around. The room was vintage and comfortable and everything...

Our 5 night stay ended earlier this week. The Inn San Francisco is the BEST B and B we have stayed in in any city we have visited.

Last year's stay with Inn San Francisco was great. On my return this year, it got better. I was a guest for 10 days. It was tough getting a room in SF due to to the 'Sales Force' conference and Annual Fleet Week. So even if I had a few rooms during this stay, I didn't mind getting moved. In...

Wow! What more can we say? We are so pleased that you found our staff so welcoming and helpful during your lengthy stay. And thank you for being so patient for your many room changes while the Inn was so busy - and dealt with it so positively. Welcome back soon! Marty

This place is just wonderful. What a great sanctuary smack in the middle of the city. It is particularly great with larger groups, or when visiting people in the city because the front parlor is spacious and comfortable and a great place to spend time chatting, snacking, or having a drink. With apartments so small in SF, this is a...

We'd read the reviews leading up to our visit and read how great it was and wondered if it really could be as nice. It is!!! We stayed in room 34 for 3 nights at the end of September and we loved it. The staff are great and go out of their way to make your stay great. It's lovely...

We are thrilled you enjoyed our Inn's features! I trust our staff were interested in you and friendly, as well. While it is unfortunate that we have to charge for parking, we find we are very lucky to be able to rent our neighbors' garages (for about $1,300 per month) and thereby provide convenient spaces for our guests. Note that...

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
