Nice place to stay
The Castles Inn is a nice place to stay. It's not a fancy place. It is clean and comfortable with a fridge, microwave, iron and board. It is located close to Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square and other sites. The bus stops on the corner that will take you to the Wharf if you are not up to the walk. There is an elevator that works well. Noise from the street can be heard on the second floor where we stayed though it did quiet down about 11 p.m. I would stay here again on my next trip to San Francisco.

First stay in San Francisco
The location was great with a lot of restaurants in walking distance. Parking was a little tight at the hotel, but there was a spot for our car. Had a neighbor above us with very heavy feet in the evening and morning. My wife was bothered on the last two nights with some odor coming in from the air conditioner, but I couldn't detect it with a slightly plugged up nose.

This was definitely a "no frills" hotel. The beds were fine so that was good. The main problem was that most of the outlets didn't work. We had to pull out the refrigerator and unplug it in order to charge our phones.

Hidden Gem
The location is perfect, close to a fun area of Polk street with lots of shopping and places to eat. We were able to walk to North Beach and every place we needed to go. The fact that this comes with parking is huge. The breakfast - is in the lobby/office/nook - it is more like a snack to tide you over until you eat out. Yogurt, coffee, danish, some fruit. We appreciated that very much and it made life with our kids easier. The room we stayed in was fine, 2 queen beds, working tv, clean bathroom. There was a pretty noticeable spot on the wall where a picture probably was hung at one point, but now it is a big crack. A few things that could have been improved, there was no stopper for the bathtub, there was no laundry bag or lotion provided. Those are pretty small details tho, I would totally stay there again.

Safe area, small parking spaces
We chose this hotel for its proximity to our son’s apartment for a weekend visit. The manager was very friendly and helpful upon check-in. There are many restaurants within walking distance. Our room was adequate, nothing fancy, nice size, in the back away from street traffic noise. No extra charge for parking which is always a factor in SF. When I booked the room it said a continental breakfast was included but they did not have ANYTHING, including brewed coffee, which was disappointing. They had hot water with instant coffee, tea and hot chocalate only. The room had a mini fridge and microwave which is useful. We paid more than usual for this type of room because the city was busy due to Fleet Week, rooms were limited. Also,be forewarned that if you drive an SUV you might have trouble parking in the small parking spaces.
