Artists Inn
Ranked #22 of 72 San Francisco B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I booked at the Artists Inn because a friend was staying nearby. It was really a terrific place. There is one room in the main house (The Garden Room), the rest are behind a charming courtyard. Our room (Virginia's) was a very comfortable large room. My folks booked Robert's Room but were upgraded to the studio. They had a kitchen area and tons of light. Both rooms open onto the courtyard and were very quiet.

The owner, Denise, was very flexible in booking and accommodated a last minute change without any problem. We didn't get to meet her because she was travelling, but we had no problems self-catering our stay.

The Inn is very close to Fillmore Street, which has myriad restaurants to choose from. It's also close to Japan Town.

Room Tip: I didn't see all four rooms, but all are probably fine. I stayed in Virginia's Room, which w...

Artists Inn, Fillmore district, San Francisco. Wonderful inn a half block off Fillmore, easy access to several bus routes that will take you everywhere you want to go; great food in easy walking distance. Comfy, funky rooms with great beds surrounding a nifty garden courtyard. Would have loved to spend more time with the owner, Denise, who was lovely on the phone and in person, but traveling for most of our stay.

Room Tip: There are four, all great.

Can't say enough good things about the Artists Inn. Hotels in San Francisco are outrageously expensive. The Artists Inn was a great value. Denise was very accomodating. I really like her hands-off approach. She was very friendly and there when we needed her, but wasn't staying up for us and wanting to talk my ear off all of the time, like some B&B hosts. The room was great, very clean and had lots of homey touches. Loved the bathrobes. Great location as well.

We stayed here recently for 3 nights. Denise was upfront about the lack of breakfast and the local cafe offering 50% discount was very good. It may have helped to have a transport map in the room as even by looking on the internet the SF system is hard to fathom. Very handy for the numbers 3 and 1 buses which link up well with the rest of the city. Fillmore was a lovely district with real character, handy for the cinema too. Our room was comfy and clean and hot drinks available from a small shared kitchen closeby which was good. Liked the garden and setting, lovely art too.

We could not have enjoyed our stay at Artists Inn more. Denise is a great hostess and our room (the Garden Room) was just what we wanted. And of course the terrific art made all the difference too. Take Denise's advice and breakfast at the Curbside Cafe. There's no need to sing the praises of San Francisco but Pacific Heights is a very good area to stay and there are a number of excellent restaurants on Fillmore. We especially liked SPQR. It's also very easy to get to the Golden Gate area and downtown. Five days of uninterrupted sunshine also helped!
