Payne Mansion Hotel, San Francisco
Not recommended
I ignored the negative reviews of this hotel and booked the Family Suite 1, which was a mistake. The suite is in the basement of the hotel, accessible only by an old elevator, with no stairs. The room was clean and the service was fine by B&B standards, but we found the room location kind of creepy. As others have mentioned, the bathroom is detached, accessible from a shared hallway. After checking in we forfeited our room and tax to move to another hotel.

Original Victorian in Calm Area
Very pretty original, preserved Victorian from 1881. The room was very spacious with shower separate from toilet. The bathrooms were beautifully renovated with very nice fixtures. the lobby is enormous being the living space of the mansion. There is no one to take up your bags or help them to your car on your way out, so the service was very limited to only taking your credit card and ID to check-in. The room and house are worth the stay. Location is close to lots of things and considered a safe area.

Payne mansion is a dump
Arrived at check in time. Owner slash desk clerk goes up to room has a tough time getting the one key to fit. The room was ok , definitely not how it looked in pictures. So I up graded to a bigger more spacious room. Fireplace did not work, some of the lighting didn’t work. In the tub area there was a vanity. In the vanity there was moldy food and an old TV dinner container. I’m very surprised hotels . Com promotes this type of establishment. Maybe they should take a second look❗️

Nice building; lousy breakfast
The building is nice and clean. Our room was comfortable and the bathroom is quite modern. Our only disappointment was what the hotel called a breakfast. They serve it 8:30-10;30, but at 9:00 there was only some picked over stale bread to make for toast. They never restocked anything. Just a terrible last impression to make.
