Booked Grove Inn based on ratings and recommendation on Tripadvisor and it turned out to be such a good 2 night experience. The neighborhood is quiet, clean, and safe. There're grocery stores within walking distance in case you need some basic stuff like beverages, etc. I arrived as a late check-in due to my flight. The staff gave me the...

It is one of those street villas up a hill, which San Francisco is famous for, and the interior as well as the friendly staff makes it feel like coming home. Reasonable price, always including free Wifi and lovely homey breakfast. Newly fitted room with a good bathroom (modern shower niche). In a really great neighborhood - a bit upper-class;...

We stayed five nights at The Grove Inn and highly recommend this B&B. It's well located in a residential neighborhood, with good access to public transportation and within easy reach to several of San Francisco's attractions. There's also several bars and restaurants a short walk from the Inn. Our bedroom was clean, well kept, with a cosy decoration - following...

Nice welcome from a very helpful young man. Lovely room with nice furnishings & decor. Comfortable, clean bed. The bathroom we had wasn't spacious & I really dislike shower curtains but it was perfectly adequate for a couple of nights. Consistent wifi was a real bonus. Breakfast selection was fine & the jam delicious but the coffee just wasn't to...

This small Inn is really clean. Large rooms great bathroom. Nice B&B style breakfast. Friendly staff. A bit far away from downtown , if you like walking but it has great public transport close by (out the door) and uber if quick and cheap. Nothing but praise for this little spot, one small point is that they have limited hours...

Perfect situated in the middle of the city. Nice friendly personnel. Big rooms with clean bathroom, but in need of refurbishment. Does not live up to my expectations for the cost of the room. Breakfast is also just almost.

A colleague and myself stayed for a business trip in San Francisco and added a couple of days of vacation. We choose The Grove Inn over the weekend and it was a good choice. Very nice people around, large room (with everything you need) and a good breakfast. It wasn't luxurious but clean, nice and as expected. Bed & Breakfast...

Nice people; decent cold breakfast; very good beds; fine shower; spacious, airy room. On a somewhat busy intersection with road noise - we had a corner room on the first floor. Was not an issue for us.
