“GREAT HOTEL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

We had a large & quiet room with fridge, microwave & coffe-maker and king-sized bed.
The continental breakfast was boring but healthy!!
ALL services were excellent. Great location: near bus stop, grocery store and pharmacy.

This is a motel. It was in a nice area of San Francisco which is within walking distance (10-15 min) of fisherman's wharf (25 to Alcatraz dock). It appears to be family owned and they are helpful in tell you where to go, where NOT to go (always helpful in a new city) and things in the area worth seeing. This is not a luxury hotel by any means but I would recommend this hotel to a traveler who is looking to be out seeing the sights not spending a lot of time in the room. Taxi to the airport costs about $40 and is close to the trolley line.

The castle inn is in a great location and has free parking, but the rooms are getting on a bit, the lack off a safe is also a worry, especially with the mesh windows.

Helpful staff offer advice and recommendations on the area.

As previous reviews stated the parking is tight at this hotel, but we unloaded our luggage easily and went to our room which was a two room suite on the Broadway side, this was a little noisy but ear plugs helped and you are in a city so you have to expect some noise. There was a microwave and small fridge provided but no dishes or utensils which would have made things easier. Beds were very comfortable and front desk staff were knowledgeable and friendly offering plenty of ideas for things to do in the area. We didn't have the included breakfast. Our experience at this hotel was good and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Castle Inn for anyone wanting a good, clean, hotel at a reasonable price.

I made a reservation more than a month in advance for a future stay. To my surprise, several days before the cancellation deadline, I discovered that the hotel charged my credit card ten times the rate - TWICE. The hotel eventually rectified it by reversing the charge, though the initial respsonse from the owner was somewhat flippant and it was a major inconvenience since it took a few days for the charge to fall off. So keep an eye on your charges after booking.

Stayed here in February with my in-laws, and my sister in-law. We stayed in the family suite and my sister in-law stayed in a room that attached to ours. The room was clean and quite nice. It had a huge walkin closet and a bedroom with king sized bed with flat screen. The main room had 2 couches, flat screen tv, a table with 2 chairs, and another king sized bed. The huge closet had a microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom had a tub/shower and wasn't huge, but we didn't have a problem with 4 adults and a toddler. The best part about this hotel is the free parking! The parking is TIGHT though! You only get one car per room and we thought we would get two spaces for the family room since it had two bedrooms, but no. Luckily we were able to find a spot across the street for a few hours and the manager let us park our car at the hotel at night when they were sure they wouldn't need the extra space. We really appreciated this. The hotel is only a few blocks from the cable car stops (although it was a uphill walk). The hotel was right next to a Walgreens and a Starbucks too! :) We ordered pizza from a pizza place right down the block and it was great! They do offer a continental breakfast that you can grab from their tiny office. Granola bars, coffee, oj, muffins, oatmeal. Just the basics, but for the price it was fine. Hope to stay here in the future!

I spent a night at this inn, and although the staff was helpful and the room looked nice and clean, I had barely any sleep that night due to the thinness of the shared walls. Let's put it that way, you don't want to be "sandwiched" between people arguing on one side, and people on the other side hitting the wall with the headboard. Also, if you plan on staying a little later in bed, just be aware that they stop serving the complimentary breakfast at 9 a.m. – If you miss it (like I did), you can find a very popular bakery, La Boulange, just a few blocks away on Green St. where they serve excellent coffee and breakfast - The hotel is in a safe location, and very close to nice restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques. Overall, this is not a bad choice as long as you bring earplugs just in case…
