“Loved Our Stay”
Reviewed 5 November 2010

We chose The Inn On Castro first, for location,in the center of the Castro.
Second ,because of the reviews on this web site.
And we are very happy with our choice.
We came for the Castro Street Fair and the location of this Inn is perfect. Steps to all of the fun.
We have stayed at other B & Bs in the area and this is our favorite, so far. Inn On Castro is also very close to public transportation so it is very easy to get around the city.
We had the Patio Suite which has it's own outside entrance separate of the main entrance and access to a backyard patio. Very private.
We enjoyed the breakfast every morning, with a choice of 2 cooked to order specials in addition to fresh fruit, cereal.bread, coffee and juice.
The owner was very friendly and charming and we enjoyed our conversations with him in the morning at breakfast and also with other guests.
The room wa spacious and clean. My only small complaint would be the size of the bathroom, a little small.
We have already decided if we are to return to San Francisco we would definitely stay here again.

Stayed with Jan 3 nights and really enjoyed the accommodation and Castro area. Minutes walk to lots of nice restaurants, good shopping and interesting scenery. Public transport is easy to any part of the city, Golden Gate or the beach. Our room was comfortable and the bath perfect for us. Be ready to fill up at breakfast, they're great. Thanks Jan for a nice stay.

The Inn on Castro is fantastic. Great location, immaculately clean and well presented. Juan, the owner, prepares a delicious breakfast each morning with a different hot dish each day. Will certainly stay here again.

Reviewed 15 September 2010

My boyfriend and I stayed her recently for 3 nights. The rooms are very interestingly decorated, abundant with character. If we retrun, we would probably ask for a quiet room, as ours (the green room) was right at the front and the noise from Castro St was loud (though Jan does provide earplugs). Breakfasts are amazing - very high-quality and tasty (Jan cooks these himself). I was really impressed by the free soft-drinks, snacks and reading materials which are repleneshed daily and the fact that each room has a free telephone facility. The location could not be better: right in the heart of the heart of the Castro and right beside the tram terminus and Muni for exploring Downtown. The place is not cheap, but overall it's probably worth it given the uniqueness of the experience.

I stayed there with my husband and we loved this place. Our room was cool and comfortable and the retro decor was great. Jan is a good host, very sociable and gave some good advice about local places to eat. The location was just perfect for our short break in San Francisco and the homemade breakfasts were very tasty. The inn had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable - including a decanter of brandy in the room!
