This is a more moderately priced option for people who prefer a boutique hotel. It has a charming atmosphere and is located in an interesting part of SF. We've stayed twice and certainly will again - service is friendly and helpful. Some of the rooms are indeed small, but tend to make up for it by being cleverly appointed or having a charming view.
The Gables was a perfect place for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary. It was charming, romantic, affordable, and super convenient to walk to the restaurants and for strolling in the heart of Sausalito.
My family and I weren't disappointed after our all too brief stay at the Washington Square Inn. Having already visited this particular area within San Francisco, we knew where we wanted to stay and this place perfectly met our needs. The rooms all have bags of character, and the place is very friendly. The rooms vary considerably in terms of views / size / lighting etc - so be sure to check what you require for your stay. The afternoon cheese and wine and comprehensive breakfasts are a nice touch. I would most definitely consider staying here again when in San Francisco. Matt (UK)
Very Clean. Courteous staff. Comfortable rooms. Situated in heart of North Beach, San Francisco. Just across from Washington Square Park and Saints Peter & Paul church--a very pretty setting. Enjoyable stay.
Our stay was amazing. Great location. Great room with an amazing view. Friendly staff. Welcomed children. Great history as the first hotel in Sausalito. Walking distance to all of downtown.
We stayed here one night over spring break on a road trip up California's coast. It was a perfect quiet refuge to spend the night and then take the ferry into the city for the day. The ferry ride itself was a highlight of our vacation! Highly recommend Sausalito as a place to stay when visiting San Fran, and this gem is a perfect spot to rest and recuperate.
Loved this this bed and breakfast. The room was spacious and comfortable. Had a nice homelike quality. I loved having the fireplace in the room which made it very cozy on the cool day and evening that we stayed there. It was just steps from the main strip and the bay. There was a nice variety of healthy options at breakfast. Plenty of fruit, yogurt, pastries, cereal/cereal bars, milk and juice. The evening wine and cheese was excellent as well.
We loved the Washington Square Inn—wonderful location. The only problem was noise, both from the street and from the people walking across the rooms upstairs. Luckily, I had a white noise app on my iPad, which helped.
Shower was in poor shape and appeared to have mold in the grout seams. Shower head was broken and request to repair was ignored. Breakfast was very skimpy, fruit cup was more like a fruit thimble.
We are repeat visitors to this wonderful b&b. The location is superb and everyone is so friendly. We were a little disappointed that our window faced the alley, since all pics show a street view. The bed was so comfortable and we slept great. There was a very generous happy hour onsite and breakfast was either in room or downstairs.
Very nice facilities, especially if you get one of the mid-level rooms. Note: the neighborhood is a bit noisy and you will sleep better if you make sure you close all the windows, including the bathroom window (if any). The breakfast pastries/cereal were a nice touch.
I want Washington Square Inn to be just successful enough to keep prices where they are, but not so busy that I can't get a room two or three times a year that I visit San Francisco. This place has a wonderful boutique B&B feel to it. Having the bathroom across the hall from the bedroom was no problem at all, kind of quaint. Excellent value, really the best I've found on the peninsula. And the location is primo! Right on the northern edge of Little Italy and Chinatown, and a 10 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. This is my SF home!
We spent two nights in Room 7- one of the suites. The room had a wonderful view from the bay window. We had plenty of space and the bed was very comfortable. The afternoon wine and cheese were very nice, and the breakfast was good as well. The location is perfect. The staff was helpful and polite.
We were in the city for just the night, unfortunately it was for a relative's funeral and not a more joyous occasion. Adrian, the clerk that greeted us, was quite courteous, kind and had a great spirit about him. Our room was well appointed for an older inn and the service there was timely and the included breakfast was fair in comparison to what you can get in and around North Beach. All in all, if we want to stay in SF near all the nightlife, then we shall be returning to the Washington Square Inn.
The room we stayed in was well kept. It was one of the nicest bed and breakfasts we have ever stayed. Wine and cheese hour was an added bonus. Everyone was nice and friendly. Be cautious of parking. They don't have much room in their tight space.
We stayed in a King suite, nice, clean and quiet with a European vibe. Terrific restaurants and bars all around, world famous City Lights Books a couple of blocks away, walking distance to the wharf, Chinatown and much more. Not inexpensive, but if it fits your budget its definitely worth a look!
We enjoyed our two night stay. The bed was very comfortable. We loved the neighborhood. Try Mama's for lunch on the opposite corner -- a great experience in casual food and fun.. Parking garage was quite convenient.
