“An inexpensive stay in downtown San Francisco”
One of the common things that visitors to the Hayes Valley Inn have to say about the place is that it is inexpensive. And that it belongs to one of the most creative, coolest neighborhoods in San Francisco. Or that the beds are comfortable, and the breakfast is a great spread.And all these things are true. But the way people most often describe the Inn is “home.” The reality is that whenever anyone is traveling, the place they stay is their home for the time they are there. Most of us forget this, however, because we often are not treated this way in hotels.The feeling of home at the Inn comes from a thousand little details and a few major attitudes: An atmosphere of genuine friendliness, from both staff, who will lend you their own umbrellas on a rainy day or mail back forgotten items on their days off, and guests, who get into easy conversation with one another, sometimes in their robes at breakfast. A relaxed attitude, with the diverse array of breakfast items and cookies from tea being left out late, so people don’t feel like they have to race to make a deadline to eat. A sense of comfort, which comes as much from the décor that makes you feel like you’re sitting at your friend’s house as it does from the fact that you are always greeted at the entry by someone in the office, and sometimes, by a soft black-and-white dog.
Hayes Valley is a really cool SF neighborhood. Loads of shopping and this B&B is an adorable place to stay. Close to the bus, cable car and light-rail stations. There's free wifi, and bathrooms are shared. Breakfast is free, and there's often tea and cookies in the afternoon.
