The Mayflower is an old-fashioned hotel that is within reasonable walking distance of the Moscone Center - about 20 minutes. The interior is clean and pleasing, clearly harkening back to the 1920s - not fancy, not run-down, but rather well-maintained. The rooms have refrigerator, microwave, some dishes, TV, internet; the rooms are clean. Get an room on an upper-floor for...

If you are interested in staying in a location close to the Union Square, you can try to stay in at May Flower but if you are used in sleeping and clean sheets do not expect this at the hotel. I do not like to give bad reviews but due to unreal reviews I went in also and for 3...

This hotel is in a great location (walking distance to union square) and the rooms are very clean. Hard to beat the value of this place. Free breakfast included and everyone working here is super nice. I would definitely stay here again!

When we first walked into the room I was disappointed not to be welcomed with that crisp, modern, hotel feel. Instead the room felt old-fashioned with thick wall to wall carpeting and dated flowered comforters. But soon the charm of the room, with new windows (quiet) and wood shutters that added a nice touch, started to grow on me. The...

We thought this hotel was so retro and cool. It's old and has lots of history. The staff was so friendly and always greeted you with a smile. We took a girls weekend to San Fran and it was centrally located to everything we wanted to be around at a reasonable price! The rooms are quaint, quiet and clean. We...

This hotel is a wonderful discovery. Only two blocks from Grace Cathedral on Knob Hill, the hotel is a wonderful place to stay. I had a nice room, with microwave and small refrigerator, and a nice bath. They also serve a really nice free breakfast each morning. The staff are delightful, friendly, and helpful. My single room was quite modest...

The Hotel Mayflower is very inexpensive for San Francisco. The room was comfortable with vintage furniture and a walk-in closet that actually had room for 2 suitcases with room to spare. The staff was very helpful about the best ways to get to the various sites and how to get from one to another. I definitely would recommend it.

The Hotel Mayflower is a lovely old hotel in a central location, near Union Square, with clean spacious rooms and lots of character at a great price. The room we stayed in had a large walk in closet with plenty of space for clothing and suitcases. The room also had a small fridge and microwave. An adequate Continental breakfast was...

This hotel is a great deal. I'll admit, I was skeptical given how cheap it was compared to other options, but it turned out to be great (we got a deluxe two double bed room that was about $175/night including tax in August). It's an old building but the rooms are well maintained. It's nothing fancy, but clean, in a...
