You need adjust your expectations, this is a 2, 3 star motel with a high price because of its location. Its overpriced. However customer service was good, you can tell they have been doing business for some time and understand this type of business.

Went to the Bay Area for a vacation and found Castle Inn was well located and relatively cheap! The staff here elevated our stay in San Francisco with incredible hospitality and great insight for neighboring attractions! The room was wonderful; plenty of space to ourselves with little-to-no noise from our neighbors. Emily helped ensure our stay in San Francisco was one for the memory books. Thank you so much!

Pleased with our choice of hotel. Easy to locate driving wise and well located for all we wanted to do - mind you, we don’t mind a good walk. Parking was excellent and staff helpful. A couple of organic stores nearby and enough restaurants to please. We loved Chinatown so that was our go to for our 2 days here. There are many other hotels close to the downtown action but when I searched this seemed to be a good option.

We stayed one night at castle inn because we were going to see a concert at The Fillmore and couldn’t be more please! The room was clean and comfortable, had a mini fridge/freezer, microwave and coffee pot. Plenty of towels and washcloths provided, nice bathroom, the ac and heating both worked as did the tv although we didn’t really use it. The next day we had a wander around SF and we were able to leave our car parked there until we left around 2pm no problem. The parking was free and felt secure, still don’t leave your valuables visible! It was an easy walk to The Fillmore, yummy restaurants, peets and Starbucks are literally around the corner. Nice staff, excellent pricing, this is going to be our new go to for SF adventures!

Booked directly with the hotel to get best price. Location is perfect for a San Fran city trip. Polk road is around the corner with a lot of shopping and dining options. All tourists attractions within walking distance. Complementary parking is a huge benefit. Unfortunately no breakfast was served due to covid restrictions but we had a coffee machine and a microwave in our room.

Ah. First, I've probably stayed in the Bay Area 25 times since 2013. One of my favorite towns abet rather pricey . I'm a budget traveler who can appreciate a " Gem" in one the most expensive cities in the world. The Castle doesn't pretend to be extraordinary, but is clean, safe and functional in a interesting Polk St area. Back rooms are quieter and most seem to a mini fridge. Damon was very helpful with some info on Polk St & surrounding neighborhoods. $ 110 doesn't go far in SF, but I'd recommend the Castle for an unpretentious 3 nights per. While unneeded , the Castle has parking, kinda rare in SF. Not a 3 star, but a good place in between flights.

This hotel is located in San Francisco city center on. Broadway street and between Van Ness and Polk street. The location is very good. There is a lot of restaurants, supermarket nearby the hotel. The fisherman's wharf is 1 km from the hotel. Golden Gate is 5-6 km from the hotel. Room is large, clean and comfortable.  There are microwave, TV, fridge and coffee maker in the room. Toilet is equipped with bathtub and shower. Air condition can be cool and heat. The noise of air condition is too loud during fan is operating. Staff is helpful. Free parking space is sufficient. Recommend this hotel for all type of customer.

We wanted to experience different hotels, so we stayed 2 nights in one place and another 2 nights at Castle Inn. Both were good, but Castle Inn was better! A last-minute choice and the manager couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. The location was fantastic and free parking was a welcome bonus!

I always like my stay here at the Castle Inn. Whether it's for work or entertainment night. The Inn is conveniently located, super clean and neat, free parking and a reasonable rate. The rooms have refrigerators and microwave and there are stores within walking distance to buy groceries. The beds have thick firm mattresses and are comfortable. If you want a place to stay that is budget friendly, great location, and super clean with comfortable beds this is the place.
