Short stay

Staff very very helpful. Had to change rooms due to noise but staff very accommodating. Room was very small but spent very little time there so not a problem. Said bed was a double but more like a full bed so might be a bit small for a couple.

San Francisco weekend getaway

Fabulous!! The staff ~ all of the staff from front desk to bar to doorman ~ were very genuinely friendly and conscientious. The room was small but cozy. The bed very comfy and the hotel well built and quiet. I would highly recommend this hotel and hope to return soon!!

All Heart in San Francisco

What a delightful experience! The Larkspur is a real treasure. It is a tremendous deal at these rates. The staff was wonderful, room was clean and comfortable and the location was unbeatable. Highly recommend the day spa right next door - a fabulous treat.

Mamacita is a really great Mexican restaurant. Go early and enjoy a glass of wine in any of the many small wine bars in the neighborhood.

Gay Pride Weekend

The hotel was nice and cozy. A little higher price because of the pride weekend, but definately on the lower end compared to other hotels. Queen room was small, definately couldn't have more than two people in there. Staff was friendly and gave great directions to places we were going. There was a cabaret show in the bar the first night and it was a 20 dollar cover and two drink minimum. We probably would've gone had the hotel gave us some discount tickets or compt it for us. There's a Walgreens accross the street that is perfect for things forgotten or to grab snacks. Hotel was definately clean and safe.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get a MUNI pass at the Walgreens. They are good for trolley's and MUNI busses. There is a Trolley stop right at the corner that took us to Market street everyday. Otherwise the trolley is $6 a trip

What fun!

Our room was small but perfect for us. The room had everything we needed. It was very clean and the staff bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. We had valet service parking and had no worries about the safety of our vehicle. The value was great. This will be our new home away from home in San Francisco...we will rcommend to all.

Great for solo business excursions. Small room but comfortable, clean and perfect for someone who is in the city for work. The room has a great desk with FREE, yes FREE quick and easy wifi connection. Staff was so kind and helpful. Room service would have been ideal...other than that great stay!

nice location

We only stayed one night here but enjoyed it. The staff was friendly, the hotel is in a convenient location, and the room is small but comfortable. I was prepared for the small room and bathroom, which did not bother me one bit. The bed was comfortable. The Larkspur is located across from a Walgreens and 7-11. Which was handy due to our baggage having been lost in our travels. We were able to go buy toiletry items very easily. I believe Larkspur also sells toiletry items. Next door is a diner that is open late. I was hoping to try the bar inside the hotel but it was closed at the times were were there. I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again.

Great hotel. Even better hotel staff!

As my wife and I often choose to spend weekend getaways in San Francisco, we have found our home away from home at the Larkspur Hotel. From the great location to Union Square, shopping and restaurants, the comfortable hotel room, it was the entire staff that won us over. From the bell person, to room service, to the entire front desk, our future stays in San francisco will be at Larkspur Hotel.
