This is the second time we’ve stayed at Castle Inn and definitely won’t be the last! Everything travelers need is here (parking, quiet, clean, close, etc). The parking garages are a little tight, but we had parking each of the three nights we stayed.

Requested a waive of cancellation fees due to my mom having chemotherapy and they declined it after hanging up on me. I guess they really needed that $150. Just know they will take your money if your plans change at all. I will never stay here and recommend others find better accommodations.

We had a great stay at our accomodation. We had trouble opening the door using the card given to us in the first 2 days of our stay. The guy in the counter fixed it the next day and it was all good. We felt safe walking throughout the neighborhood. That same guy at the counter gave us heads up not to go to a certain area where high crimes are rampant and it was very helpful. Overall we love our stay and we would definitely come back some other time as we did not get to other parts of SF..

The beds are awesome. 14" memory foam hybrid. I can sleep all night without adjusting. Clean room. Pleasant staff. Free parking. Elevator. Lots of hot water. Decent price. The AC has a functioning thermostat so there are not huge swings in the room temp. Love it

The room was very comfortable and the microwave and ‘fridge made the stay very useful for keeping and cooking food that i bought locally - i walked everywhere in San Francisco (i am a useless tourist who enjoyed looking at but not riding a cable car) and the Motel location was ideal for that - and most of all they left me alone, which i love

The lodging was exactly what we needed. While a little dated it was clean and the beds were great. If you’re on the third floor you’ll get a workout on the stairs if the elevator is out. The manager was very gracious when our flight was delayed and let us in after hours. We really appreciated his flexibility.

It is always a risk to reserve a hotel online. We really lucked out with Castle Inn. It is an older hotel with small rooms. We reserved two rooms and the clerk gave us connecting rooms without us asking for them. Free, covered parking. Close to Muni, restaurants, and Walgreens. The only negative was that you had to stand in front of the TV for the remote to work and the Wi-Fi was slow.

Hotel is well located in center of the city, yet it’s quiet. It offers free parking which is a plus. Room and amenities feel like a Hilton Garden Inn. Guest service is nice. He recommended areas of interest in town, asked where I would like to go, and circled the part of town where I shouldn’t be at night.

We loved this place - what a great value. The room was spacious and very clean, the location was safe and near restaurants and bars, Whole Foods was a fairly short walk, there was free parking, and the bed was comfortable. The mini-fridge even had a separate freezer, which can come in handy! The Castle Inn will probably be our new go-to place to stay when in San Francisco.
