      Individual guest reviews

      • Family with children
        9.6

        Great location of the hotel (close to shopping and restaurants). Staff was friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was nice addition. Free wireless internet was working properly and was available in room. Parking was close by.

        Room was little but it didn't matter to me since I was only sleeping there. Bathroom wasn't big, but very clean. Kind of old elevator, but worked and it didn't bother me. TV could have more programs but we didn't watch it that much to be a problem for us.

      • Couple
        5.4

        I really appreciated the stuff at the reception as well as design of the lobby.

        I must admit that the rooms were small, noisy and old. Breakfast which includes just coffee, some fruits and bread is not really an breakfast. Moreover I have booked and requested room with kingsize bed and got two separate ones without any apologize or help.

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        Loved the showers and bathrooms, and the fact that breakfast was provided in the lovely dining area. The location was also perfect, and very central to everything.

        The room was a bit small to store suitcases for two people, but we managed.

        We were delighted with the WHOLE experience. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The ambiance was good - the room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We'd go back to Larkspur in a heartbeat!

      • Single
        7.4

        The location was great, room was clean.

        The front desk women wasnt friendly, until I paid her tips. They give me a single bed, but I can easily get a comfotable double bed room with the price I ve paid in the area. Also somehow they ve put me into a room for disables, therefore there s no table for me to put my stuff, no bath tub, shower was not high enough for people above 160cm, also there are water everywhere after a shower. Anyway just expected them to do better!

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        The staff were wonderful, especially Kevin the Porter and The reception staff. They could not have been more helpful. The location was great and the rooms comfortable and good value for money.

      • Older travelers

        Rates, location, free internet good staff support.

        duvet - we much prefer blankets

      • Single
        9.2

        I had a warm welcome. The rooms are rather small but have all the comfort you need. The location is excellent, close to public transport hubs, including the Bart that connects with the airport. The hotel has an authentic atmosphere, much better than a 'chain hotel'.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Very handy location. Right near Union Square. Close to shops and transport. Easy 4-block walk from Powell station (even with luggage) made the bart a simple airport transfer option. Room size was Ok with a writing desk and bed side tables included. Also we left behind some (relatively) expensive facewash which they managed to track down for us. Printer and computer available in downstairs business area.

        Nothing really, though a refrigerator in the rooms would have been helpful

      • Single
        8.2

        A friendly welcome accompanied by a service-minded staff. The free Wi-Fi was something that was much appreciated and the help from the staff with regard to the need for a transformer for my european outlet on my computer. For the location (Union Square) its worth every dollar it cost to stay there.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The Larkspur Hotel reflects the comfort style and charm of old San Francisco (even playing old time classic songs of yesteryear through their sound system that you hear as you near the Hotel)..It is located a half block from Union Square area which is the best location to be at in the city for getting around. The quality and rate we got for this past weekend was excellent!

        Parking is costly and extra.

      • Family with children
        8.2

        Kevin the Bell Hop was exceptionally friendly and helpful!! A very nice welcome to the city. The reservationist at check-in was also very friendly and helpful in planning our day trips. The location of the hotel is excellent. The rooms are clean but small, but that is typical of city travel.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Staff was very helpful, friendly, and competent. Hotel was quiet, even in the heart of the city, and very clean and convenient. I would definitely go back.

      • Single
        10.0

        The bed was soooo comfortable. The room was classy but small, Location was great too!

        I didnt like the size of the room, it was tight. And the walls seemed to be thin. I could hear in the hallway and such,
