Newly remodeled rooms, good staff, everything we needed in San Francisco. Definitely we are recommending it to friends and specifically my parents with their little dog (pet store is next door). Cute little neighborhood too

I booked 2 rooms for 5 nights each in January for a stay in May. 1 week prior to arrival the GM sends an email saying that there had been a water leak and he was cancelling my reservations. I called to discuss and found him to be rude....he said regardless of when I made the reservation, he could cancel...

My mom was having surgery at UCSF. I wanted a place to stay that was close to UC San Francisco that was clean and comfortable with parking so that I could easily go back and forth between hospital and hotel if I needed to.

We had medical appointments at UCSF Medical Center and, because we live 6 hours from SF needed a place to stay within a reasonable distance. We have stayed in SF many times over the years but always in the more tourist heavy areas (Union Square, Marina, Fisherman's Wharf) so we have never had reason to try the Laurel Inn previously....

We had a city view room which was nicely decorated, very clean and extremely quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful. Of course everyone would love to pay less for a room in San Francisco, I guess this was a good value. Bottled water in the room would be appreciated. However when I asked for this item upon checking in, it...

My room was loud & had a bad smell....besides that, it's a lovely hotel. The bathroom was beautiful and the furnishings stylish. The warm cookies in the lobby are a great treat. But I probably wouldn't stay there again.

We stay at the Laurel Inn regularly and really appreciate the new decor. The fresh look compliments the large comfortable rooms and the city views. As always, the service and hospitality remains excellent. Plus, they are sound on dogs!

There were 5 couples from my family, so we had 5 different rooms. We were there to support one of our brothers who was undergoing surgery @ UCSF. The location of the Laurel Inn was so convenient in this regard. The pleasantness of the staff was so appreciated under those circumstances. Thank you
