This hotel is exactly what I was looking for my week in San Francisco. Centrally located, clean and not expensive with breakfast and parking included ! You can not beat this price anywhere in San Francisco. Excellent communication by e-mail with Esther and Nancy for booking. I asked for a quiet room without carpet and this is what I got...

This family owned hotel was full of charm, and wax clean, quiet and wonderful. We enjoyed the room- the walk in closet and kitchenette were great features. Our room was on the 5th floor and we got a nice breeze at night. The beds were comfortable and the shower was good. Continental-style Breakfast was included and was good. The location...

We were thrilled with the Mayflower. It is an unbelievable value for San Francisco. The room amenities (not to mention free parking) are far better than you can get for 150% of the rate at Mayflower. Rather than being nickel and dimed at more expensive, lower quality hotels, opt for the Mayflower. Great location, excellent service, and a beautiful historic...

I've stayed here at least 3 times over the years. The breakfast is mainly breads and cereals with apples as a sideline. I need some protein! They have cheese slices but its low quality stuff. I brought my own canadian bacon and good cheese down to bfkst every morning. Occasionally they have eggs! Thankfully there is a Trader Joe's a...

I called direct for a 8 night booking. Ask for Hester, a friendly, helpful front desk manager. She'll give you a great rate that includes free garage parking in the basement and continental breakfast that opens at 6:30. Our #618 double room has an unobstructed view, lots of space (even a walk-in closet), adequate bathroom, and plenty of lighting that...

Good Afternoon Mr. Alohatripper, Thank you so much for the lovely comments and for pointing out the little niggles, the low water pressure is as a result of the City of San Francisco Ordinance to conserve water, they ordered all business to install low flow shower heads and then sent out an inspector to check. we are glad the garage...

The hotel is a vintage hotel but is still great. It's located near Union square and you can walk to the attractions. The room is provided with a microwave and even has plates and utensils so you can eat inside the room! They also had breakfast provided. We had an awesome stay in Hotel Mayflower

Yes, it is a little old fashioned as one reviewer posted but this is like a Grand Old Dame. It has a comfort feel and quaintness about it. We stayed in a double room, it had CLEAN flowered sheets and a soft duvet. Our view was not that great but because we were not on the front of the hotel...

The Mayflower is an old-fashioned hotel that is within reasonable walking distance of the Moscone Center - about 20 minutes. The interior is clean and pleasing, clearly harkening back to the 1920s - not fancy, not run-down, but rather well-maintained. The rooms have refrigerator, microwave, some dishes, TV, internet; the rooms are clean. Get an room on an upper-floor for...

If you are interested in staying in a location close to the Union Square, you can try to stay in at May Flower but if you are used in sleeping and clean sheets do not expect this at the hotel. I do not like to give bad reviews but due to unreal reviews I went in also and for 3...

Hello from the Mayflower Hotel, We are sorry to hear you had such a bad experience at the hotel, we wish you had spoken to someone at the front desk and we could have taken care of the problem, we are a family run business and appreciate all comments and feed back so we can make it a better experience...

This hotel is in a great location (walking distance to union square) and the rooms are very clean. Hard to beat the value of this place. Free breakfast included and everyone working here is super nice. I would definitely stay here again!
