Very helpful management. Good location, within walking distance of pier 39, and several tour operators. Enjoyed our stay just wish it had been longer.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Caste Inn Hotel

Location, Location

from mactavsy
I had read the reviews and wasn't disappointed.

Our room was spacious and clean and the free parking and breakfast was much appreciated. Above all, however, the location was superb - central, safe and surrounded by quality, affordable restaurants and Varsa, on reception, was so welcoming, friendly and helpful with a wealth of good advice.

Overall value for money at the Castle Inn, in not the cheapest of cities, was second to none.

If only all small, budget hotels could offer the same...

Loved the Castle Inn

from A TripAdvisor Member
If you are headed to San Francisco, the Castle Inn is a great place to stay. Varsa at the front desk was the most helpful person I've run into while traveling anywhere! She patiently helped me with directions, recommended places to eat, etc. The cleaning staff is great there too - the room was kept extremely clean! The free parking was nice too. I'll be staying at the Castle Inn again on my next trip to San Francisco!

We just spent 2 nights at the Castle Inn with our two sons. It was the perfect place for our stay in San Francisco! The rooms were very nice, the location (and price) couldn't be better, and Versa made us feel right at home. We've only been back a couple of days, but have already recommeded it to some friends who are thinking of visiting San Francisco. The next time we head here on vacation, there's no question of where we're staying!

The Castle Inn is really a gem of a hotel. Excellent value for money, clean as a whistle. Marshall and Arlene are wonderful hosts, where nothing is too much trouble. Well done!....and it's in a great part of town. You've got me next time.

An exceptional facility, value and hosts

from A TripAdvisor Member
Before traveling through Europe using Rick Steves' travel guides and philosophy where he promotes staying near the center of urban areas, we assiduously avoided these locations as overpriced, ill kept, and unsafe. We nearly let our past beliefs dictate where we would locate when we visited San Francisco. To our delight we found the Castle Inn to be a great value, fantastic location, fastidiously maintained and providing a secure parking area for our car--all inclusive in the price of the room. Our room looked recently redecorated and contained a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, a king size bed with an excellent mattress, and a table and chairs that offered an inviting place to read or update our travel log.

Our hosts, Marshall & Arlene, were exceptional. They made us feel like valued friends. They provided us with maps, a suggested itinerary of things to see during our stay, and a detailed sheet of the various modes of public transportation listing the stops and fares. They made reservations for us for the tours we wanted to take and even found discount coupons for us in various travel guides. When we asked for advice on places to eat, they offered a compendium of choices depending on our ethnic choices--all within walking distances of the Castle Inn.
The continental breakfasts they served were fresh, tasty, pleasantly presented and replenished right up to the end of the serving hours.
Because of Marshall & Arlene's attentiveness and attention to detail and the needs of their guests, we assumed that they were the owners of the property rather than employees of the facility. I would suggest to the owners that they have a rare find in these two people. They should also be on the payroll of the Chamber of Commerce; they exude a love and enthusiasm for San Francisco that is infectious to anyone entering the motel to inquire of a vacancy.Thanks for making our stay so memorable. With your help we, too, left our hearts in San Francisco!

Great rooms and a great value

from justbill
We visit San Francisco often and have tried several properties, but we have made the Castle Inn our only place to stay. Very clean and well maintained, quiet and a great staff. Great dining within walking distance and centrally located. The best part is that it is reasonably priced.

A real find.

from A TripAdvisor Member
Clean hotel with very affordable rates located in a safe neighborhood with clean and quiet rooms. Wondeful front desk assistance. Very helpful and Knowledgeable.

I would definitely stay there again.

Best value for your money!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recommend this place: family-friendly (myself, my wife and 4 year-old son); centrally located to S.F. attractions and bus and cable car stops; friendly and helpful staff; clean rooms... all at a reasonable price!

good location and service

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I were on Cell Biology Meeting in S. -F. from 12.12.03 till 12.18.03. We decided to stay at Castle Inn after reading all reviews about it. The location was really great: quiet and safe. Based on the advice of the desk clerks Marshall and Arlene we used a trolley to get to Moscone Center, every night walked to Fisherman's Wharf. The room was clean, nice, quite, had fridge with freezer, microwave and coffee maker. Parking was free. Next time we will stay at the same place.

Fantastic value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Fantastic and great value, tucked away and a well kept secret, staff were very friendly and helpful. Very convenient for pick up of tours. Best kept secret in SF.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Alcatraz Make sure you book your Alcatraz tickets well in advance. Go for one of the early morning tours as the place is less crowded. You should definately visit Alcatraz the $24 is a superb price and we were shocked to find how much there was to see.

MUNI passport Grab a 3-day passport for 18 dollars and you'll never need a cab. Frequent bus service is good, cable cars are a good novelty trip and Embarcadero trolleys are also cool. Great value, regular and felt safe.

Buy a Muni pass Don't be afraid of public transportation- it was easy to get around and the 3 day muni pass was paid for in one day alone.
