Established in 1904.

Pershing Hall was housing for unmarried Army officers in the Presidio. The original building was destroyed by fire in 1899, a wood-frame bachelor officers' quarters nicknamed "The Corral". In 1904, this new brick quarters was completed, later named after General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing, who served briefly at the Presidio, & later became commander of the American Expeditionary Force in France during World War I. This building later served as Visiting Officers' Quarters for the Presidio until the Army's departure in 1994. This handsome Georgian Revival red brick building is distinguished by a classically-detailed, two-story porch with wooden Tuscan columns. It has a cruciform plan with two wings with a slightly projecting central pavilion facing Moraga Avenue and a central wing to the rear. It originally housed 18 two-room suites with private baths for unmarried officers. This building was among the first to introduce classically detailed, Georgian Revival designs to the Presidio.

    For a brand new inn in a sophisticated city, our experience was disappointing with a few exceptions.  
    1.  The water in the shower was always lukewarm with little pressure.  
    2.  The breakfast was accompanied by children of employees of the hotel who rooted around in the cabinets, crawled around on the floor, and generally took over the area.  There were children of guests who were well-behaved and not disruptive.  We often had to sit in the front room on sofas to eat because there was no room in the breakfast area.  One of the employees went into the kitchen, washed dishes, and then came back to have continue having breakfast with her children.
    3.  I felt that there was nowhere to be downstairs that was not occupied by these same children.  
    4.  The sheets on the bed were never tucked in correctly.
    4.  The back staircase was never vacuumed.
    1.  The staff was friendly and helpful when they weren't interacting with their children and/or friends.
    2.  The location is ideal.  It is quiet in terms of usual city noises.  There are hiking trails and beautiful trees and easy parking.
    We would like to stay here again if these problems can be corrected.  For people who come and stay a night or two, these problems may not be noticed, but for people who want to stay and have this be their home away from home, it just isn't peaceful or professional enough.

    My family and I absolutely fell in love with this place.  We decided to have our wedding night here and had a number of family members stay as we were getting married in Sausalito.  It's a hidden gem in the city!  Beautiful grounds and views all around and it's just a short walk/shuttle ride to the city-- Lots and lots of highlights and perks-- continental breakfast, wine and cheese hour, firepit, beautiful dining area and lounge area!! Views of the bridge, in the heart of the Presidio and all these nature trails and overlooks of the city (a short hike away).  The staff was super nice and accommodating and are all incredibly hospitable.  We all felt very welcomed and our family plans to stay here for their future visits to SF!  The suites are perfect places for families-- huge rooms-- alll renovated, w/ comfy sofa bed and amazing king & queen beds with balconies!  Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful and memorable!!

    We stayed here with our 2 children along with 3 other families.  One of the best hotels we have stayed at in quite awhile!  Has the feel of a small, quaint Inn on the east coast or Charleston.  Completely restored so has old world charm.  Lovely atmosphere, spacious rooms with the best beds we have slept in in a hotel in quite awhile.  Staff was very accommodating and friendly.  Fireplace out back to sit around in the evening was lovely.  Check out all the photos and books - all local history.  Lovely wine and cheese happy hour and adequate continental breakfast.  Walking distance to Fort Point and the Warming Hut - great stop for lunch.  Also trails right out the back door.  We will definitely make a return visit!

    Stayed one night.  For tourists, the place is situated within walking (10-15 min) from the palace of the fine arts.  Or about a 3 minute drive.  We drove and easily parked.  You can walk the marina neighborhood and marvel at the homes ( long may they stand).  The beach and marina are close.  It is an easy drive to everything.  The golf course looks amazing, didn't play but it looks first rate.  The building itself is situated on a rise above some other buildings with a glimpse of the bay from the front porch which is populated with nice teak rockers and coffee tables.  In the rear of the restaurant adjacent to the parking is a nice fire pit surrounded with the same rockers.  Despite the parking lot, it is an amazing setting surrounded by a forest of huge cedar and birch trees. The hotel is an old building but it feels as though every floor board, window and fixture has either been replaced or lovingly restored to mint condition.

    The staff are helpful and nice.  They generally lack the polish of what you would expect to find at a large hospitality machine like Marriott but they are friendly and accommodating.  

    Breakfast is great.  Warm oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, meats, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, breads and pastries.  Continental plus.  The coffee does not meet what I consider to the the San Francisco standard.  Little weak.

    The setting is very quiet and un city like.  There are amazing walking trails all over the property.  There is a ymca where you can work out by showing your room key close by.  If you are coming to San Fran for the downtown experience and a lot of hustle and bustle you may want to stay in Union Square or somewhere closer to the city center.

    Beautiful place with attentive staff. A bit noisy in the A.M. due to outside traffic, ( get a room away from the street)  and hot eggs versus boiled would be nice for breakfast, but there was plenty of good qualities that made up for these shortcomings. The hiking trails were a nice treat- if you've traveled by car it's a nice way to shake off the road. All in all, I would recommend based on the beauty, age and uniqueness of the Inn combined with the very friendly staff.

    This past weekend, my husband and I celebrated our 35th anniversary at the Inn at the Presidio.  We had a wonderful time.  The staff was friendly and more than willing to help us any way they could.  We enjoyed the Continental breakfast and the evening wine/cheese.  We chose the Inn because we wanted to be away from crowds in an area where we could walk and ride our bikes.  It's a peaceful, quiet setting and that's exactly what we wanted!  

    There is NOTHING I would change about the Inn at the Presidio.  We are looking forward to future visits.

    Overall impression of the Inn at the Presidio is a WWII era elegance, with wonderful leather furniture and an array of bugles mounted on the wall. It is a wonderful place with responsive service, cocktail hour wine and cheese, and a delicious continental breakfast. Some rooms have little fireplaces, and there's a great stock of interesting books to read in each room.

    The problems are in the details. I stayed 4 nights and the hot water was usually not very hot. AT&T cell service is essentially nonexistent. Toilets also seems to be WWII era. And the website is awful. They lost one of our reservations. These things happen, and they did their best to rectify. Each person I talked to was responsive and helpful, but they often dropped the ball between shift changes.

    They basically just opened, so I'm sure they'll work a lot of these details out. For now, it's a nice place to stay with a few caveats. Don't use the online reservation system until it's improved; if you use AT&T, prepare to communicate some other way (WiFi is good and local calls are free).

    They're experimenting with offering cookies and milk in the lobby at bedtime. Let's hope they keep that perk.

    We had my husbands family stay here and the accommodations were beyond perfect. They preserved the historic aesthetic of the building perfectly, while updating the space into a cozy modern feel. Feels very much like Cavallo Point. The staff was beyond accommodating; bring out bottles of wine, snacks, offering blankets while we sat around the fire outback. The Presidio is such a special place and this hotel fits right in. If we didn't live so close, we would come and stay ourselves.

    As a Veteran, this was exciting, as it was my last station of duty in 1972.  Probably the most beautiful, if not the most, Army fort.  With the properties now under private control, the trust has has begun transforming many of the building into works of art.  Something old something new.  The amenities were remarkable.  This is the part of SF history you want to visit.

    I had the privilege of touring the property during a soft opening.  What a beautiful property! From what I was told the staff was hand picked.  A group of people with many years of hospitality experience. That, if you ask me, is very important with a small Inn.  People who are willing to take the time to truly care for it's guests.  A full service hotel it is not but they never claimed to be.  It's a wonderful inn which is located in a great location. Shuttle buses available to take out around is nice as well.

    I stayed at the Inn this weekend for a wedding.  So much nicer experience than staying in a big chain hotel. The Inn has been completely remodeled and looks incredible.  everything is new and very nice but, it keeps it old school look and feel.  The staff is excellent.

    We were in San Francisco on some business, not to tour the city so I liked the quieter, out of the way location. We had a car so it wasn't hard to leave when we needed to and it was nice to come back in the evenings to wine and cheese reception. Rooms were beautiful with giant windows, plenty of room, tons of storage, lovely bathrooms, very clean. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and warm.  I've stayed at Cavallo Point and enjoyed that too, but it's nice not having to cross the bridge and we had a lot of fun exploring the Presidio. I think this would be a fantastic place for an extended stay.  I'll definitely be back.

    My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon.  We were both so pleased.  The inn is very beautiful and I love the history of the inn and Presidio park in general.  It makes it a very special place and I look forward to staying there again in the future.
    The staff also were great.

    Stayed here with my family over Presidents' Day weekend, and all of us (kids and adults) really enjoyed it.  We had a third floor suite, which afforded us a great view of the red-roofed buildings in the Presidio extending out towards the bay.  Comfy king bed, and when we mentioned we were having issues with their Aerobed, the staff was very quick to offer to make up the queen pull-out bed in the separate sitting area.

    Lots of nice touches, outside of the very good service - little books in the room providing some history of SF and the Presidio, hiking trails, and even a Shel Silverstein book that was a hit with my toddler; a decent wine and cheese reception every evening; a more impressive continental spread for breakfast in the morning.

    The hotel, buried in the Presidio, is exceptionally quiet - which I could have never imagined within city limits.  Although we didn't take advantage of the hiking trails, if you have small kids, it's a very easy walk to the very fun Julius Kahn playground, which also has a spectacular view of the city.

    Would highly recommend the Inn for anyone looking for a remarkably quiet SF getaway or for $6 daily parking!

    Had a wonderful 3 day stay here a few weeks ago.  Great room, wonderful staff, amazing setting.  About a mile or so walk to GG Bridge, shuttle to downtown, hiking trails from the hotel.  Quiet and right in the middle of SF!  My ONLY complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.  Will definitely be back again.

    The Inn at the Presidio provided exactly the type of experience I was looking for during my last trip to the beautiful Bay Area. I used to live in the Marina and have friends there, so I really wanted to stay close. Also, I am unfortunately, all too familiar with the "theater district", a.k.a the Tenderloin, where most hotels seem to be located, so I know better than most tourists to stay as far away from there as possible. I couldn't get a reservation at first, but wanted to stay on the North side of town so badly that I almost considered booking through Airbnb.  Luckily, after calling to check in for about the third or fourth time, they had a cancellation!  My boyfriend and I stayed in room 302, a one bedroom suite with lots of light, nice views from small windows and charm. The calming scent of eucalyptus in the air and chic ambient music contribute to the peaceful atmosphere. The environmentally conscious aesthetics of this establishment are just pristine.  

    The Inn offers a complimentary breakfast consisting of amazing coffee, fresh squeezed OJ, Greek yogurt, homemade granola and delectable pastry and baked goods. This was a welcome long and leisurely breakfast to enjoy with the bf after my morning run on a perfect four mile loop through the Presidio/Crissy fields.   They also offer a wine tasting happy hour in the early evening, complete with plentiful spread of cheese and crackers. Our friends joined us and we all caught up and relaxed with wine in the great room before heading out for dinner in Russian Hill.

    Renting a car made transportation easier as it's not exactly a convenient location, another reason why it is so relaxing and beautiful.  Uber car service was a reliable option to get us back safely at the end of the evening, so I recommend downloading that app if you haven't already.  

    We stayed for only two nights as we had a wedding in Sonoma and then stayed with friends in Telegraph Hill at the tail end of the trip. It's agreed: next time we visit we will stay here the whole time we're in the city, given how sad we were to leave!

    I can't wait to go back here. It was perfection. Quiet, well-appointed, CLEAN, picturesque grounds, professional staff (Brett in particular took very good care of us - shout out!), breakfast in the morning was worth waking up for (coffee was excellent and the granola/yogurt out of this world), wine/cheese a nice touch, charming all around.

    We just stayed at the Inn last night and absolutely loved it!  Brett, who was running the front desk, was so accommodating and really went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable.  Even with last minute notice they took dog friendly to another level with the great toys, and beds they provided for our pups.  

    The location is great- there is a lovely hiking trail that departs just behind the Inn and takes you into gorgeous groves of trees with snippets of bay or city views.  It is only a mile walk to the marina if you want to safely get your drink on.  We sat out drinking a bottle of wine at the firepit in the back until the wee hours.

    Our suite was absolutely gorgeous- modern meets historic and very well designed with a separate living area with a TV and gas fireplace.  The bed was comfortable- I prefer a soft mattress but slept soundly as it was, and the pillows were really nice.

    We can't wait to go back for our next staycation and are so glad for this new gem in town!!

    As a San Francisco Wedding Photographer, I've had many opportunities to shoot at various hotel locations. But boy oh boy is this Inn a treat! Not only the history involved and the gorgeous surroundings, but it's intimate enough that when I walked in, the staff knew the rooms to the bride and groom!! This certainly  to makes a difference!

    The Brides Suite #112  was dreamy and plenty of gorgeous light which is key for great shots. It's simply lovely and the hotel staff was great!  I love this place also because it is literally next door  to the gorgeous Our Lady Chapel!

    If one is planning a San Francisco Presidio wedding they should really check this place out.  Perfect for destination weddings as well since its minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge!!

    We went to the Grand Opening of the Inn at the Presidio. We couldn't wait to find out if they were really as good as they seemed from the internet. We'd been counting down the days and hours. We wanted to believe, frankly we were dying to believe, but we had been burned before. San Francisco hotels and inns always look so good on the internet. But even when you discount those self-serving photographs and descriptions, even when you study the reviews in Yelp and Trip Advisor, you can still get burned. You have to go yourself. You have to see them in the bare light of day. How many of them are there? How big? Can you really get in them?

    We had the walk through. The young gentlemen leading us through the restored building showed us the suites, the conference rooms, the common areas. All marvelous, all irrelevant. He showed us the single rooms. He showed us the kitchen in the back. He was full of adjectives. Pristine, green, original. He was full of amenities. Wifi, air con, blah, blah, blah. On and on. All irrelevant. When was he ever going to get to the important stuff?

    Finally, he led us to the back door. He must have saved the best for last. He opened the door. We stepped out outside and there they were: big and bold and beautiful. They took my breath away. I literally gasped at the sight. Each one glorious alone, but what blew me away was the sight of them all together. There must have been 70 of them. A whole vast field of them.

    Standing there, in the sunlight, there was no denying that the Inn at the Presidio has got the goods. The Inn at the Presidio truly has parking.

    Just spent the last couple of days enjoying the Presidio and points beyond.

    The Inn, in a renovated building on the grounds, is one of many architectural and historical delights being lovingly worked on in the Presidio. It's easily accessed by the 101 (and will be even easier once the bypass is finished - there's still a ton of construction going on as of Summer 2013) and it's a hop right onto the Golden Gate Bridge, the views of which from our 3rd floor room were gorgeous. Inside the Inn, style abounds, but it's not too hip or posh to alienate - we spent hours relaxing and reading on the leather sofas by the fire (! in June!) having wine and cheese. The room was lovely, the king bed giant, the shades nice and dark, and the bathroom clean and enormous. Heads-up - low water pressure on the 3rd floor, as to be expected from a renovated old building. No elevators, either. However, the concierge was nothing if not friendly and accomodating and they would have carried a toothbrush up for my elderly mother if she'd needed it. Excellent wine and cheese from Dreaming Tree complete with Cowgirl Creamery cheeses and fresh fruit.

    I knocked one star off for the following:

    -There should have been free bottles of water available in the room for a hotel of this price point. Instead, the Inn bottles its own, which is $15 in the mini bar. !!!
    -The Inn was listed everywhere as a B&B, which it's not. Breakfast, while tasty, was a continental, not a B&B hot breakfast. I have honestly had equivalent continental breakfasts at inexpensive chain motels, which is not what I expected here. Nicely cooked steel-cut oatmeal was available as well as loads of pastries and hard-boiled eggs, but there was no actual sit-down breakfast the way a B&B does. Just be advised if you were prepared for a big meal to get you on your way for the day, that you might want to go out to breakfast elsewhere.

    Recently stayed here for a wedding. Extremely helpful staff with great attitudes. Everything is brand new with great decor. We stayed in a standard room (#226) which had lots of light and old style windows you can completely open for the cool breeze of the bay. Our shower was HUGE. Full, walk-in shower about 5ft x 5ft area you literally can walk around in, new blue tile from top to bottom. It was hard to leave. On top of how awesome the room was, I had 3 experiences of outstanding customer service from my stay:

    #1. Some friends of mine were waiting for a cab to take them out for late night drinks after the wedding, meanwhile chatting with the guy at the front desk. After waiting for about 30 mins the front desk guy says "c'mon guys, i'll just take you real quick". My two buddies hop in HIS car and he takes them out of the presidio, down Lombard street to the bar. My buddies tipped him with a $20.

    #2. My room is where we stored one of the left over kegs of beer from the wedding (which was still quite full). The morning after, two staff members walking down the hall saw me trying to lug it out of the room and offered to help and the both of them transported it down the hall, down a staircase and directly to my car in the parking lot.

    #3. The day after we checked out my girlfriend realized she forgot her belt in the room (part of a pricey vintage set). She called The Inn, they had found it, they mailed it to our place and we had it back within 24hrs.

    Great place to stay! Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

    This is a great find.  We did not stay there, my introduction was the site for a staff retreat and I highly recommend this facility.  Did peak into the guest rooms and they are very nicely furnished and spacious.

    The staff are friendly, the service was spot on, but the location is great, you can sit on the patio by the fire on rocking chairs or out front on the porch and relax.  You can take a great hike just out the back door and explore the Presidio.

    For my final night in San Francisco after living here for 25 yrs, I wanted a special and truly San Francisco experience, the Inn at the Presidio surpassed my expectations.

    Yes, it is a freshly renovated historic landmark so there are a few glitches. No elevator, which is only a problem if you have lots of stuff. The original check-in person was friendly but painfully inexperienced and less than effusive. She was much more involved in playing with a child and someone's dog than handling my check-in.

    I had personally stopped in a week or so beforehand to verify the hotel was pet-friendly and accepted cats. I was assured that food bowls, etc. would be provided. Someone must have neglected to note my request as I had to beg a friend to drive to Safeway for a litter pan and litter, for one night. I was shocked that the "back" door, adjacent to the parking area remained unlocked until at least 11:30 pm.


    It is lovely and relaxing, fresh and appealing. My room was a bit tight but I interpreted that as cozy. The bed was beyond comfortable, loved the bathroom, especially the shower stall. The water pressure was a bit low for me and I could barely reach the showerhead to adjust the spray in the direction I needed it to flow.

    Idyllic to sleep in the urban forest and see the Golden Gate Bridge upon awakening. The firepit and deck are attractive and a couple of raccoons happened to wander by while we were enjoying a glass of California syrah.

    The morning front desk person was extremely professional and helpful. Sergio, I think, was the man who helped me with my ridiculous number of bags, made sure the limo driver found me, and even came out to double check that the items I had left in the room were intentionally left by me (unused cat litter in the bag, body lotion in a larger than 3 oz. container I would be unable to bring on plane).

    The glitches will be worked out and I really want to stay there again.

    We stayed here our wedding weekend and loved it. The rooms are beautiful and clean, everyone that works there was friendly and helpful. The pictures that we took on site during the day of the wedding were beautiful with the inn as a background. The rooms are spacious and decorated beautifully. Yes, it is a little on the pricey side, but surrounding hotels were not even comparable and still not that much less. It's well worth it and we will be staying here for anniversary's to come!

    Outstanding! My company was having a retreat in the Presidio and needed over 15 rooms that would suit a sometimes picky crowd.

    We're so glad we stayed with at the Inn - working with Rhenan in the months leading up to our stay she was more than accommodating as I probably made about 100 changes to our reservations. For being a newly opened hotel, the staff and space itself is incredible. Everyone raved about how gorgeous the rooms were - a great blend of the old, military Presidio feel and modern design.

    The beds were super comfy - great bathtub ... and I can't say enough about the staff!! They were so helpful when we suddenly needed a towncar to escort our party of 25 to dinner in rotations... they organized this for us without a hitch.

    I will for sure come back!!!

    KEY: Room 322 is the one you want. Large room with 3 windows and 2 in the bathroom. Nice view of the bay and Angel Island.
    GO AGAIN: Yes! Very nice place (no elevator), somewhat expensive ($640 for two nights, including tax and parking), but such a nice remote and quite location.

    We just got back from a lovely 3 night stay at this charming inn. It was unlike any other hotel experience I've had and we really enjoyed it. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable and cute. The feel of the hotel is antique but modern all at once. Our room had a living space with a fireplace as well as a bedroom (with a very comfortable bed!) and a modern bathroom. The lounge area of the hotel is not to be missed either. Every morning they offer a European breakfast with delicious coffee, baked goods & fruit. In the evening they have wine & cheese from 5-7 which is perfect to enjoy outside by the fire pit. This area of SF is gorgeous with lots of places to hike, bike or run. The service here was also great. The concierges were very knowledgable about nearby restaurants and attractions and they made sure everyone was comfortable and happy. My only (small) complaints: the rooms didn't seem to have any AC or adjustable temperature controls. Since it was nice out we could just open the windows but during the warmer or colder months I can see this being an issue. Also since it's an older building you can easily hear people walking around/chatting outside. I would love to come back and stay again!

    This is the ultimate experience in San Francisco.  Always stay at a different hotel when up here every few months but  we will return here again and again instead!  The general manage as well as all the staff are excellent.  The proximity and view of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge is the best especially since you can ride the bikes on the premises to get there.  The wine hour is high quality as is the breakfast which is way more than a continental breakfast.  Thank you!  Can't wait to come back!

    This is one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in. It is beautifully located in the Presidio which is fun to walk around it.   We were in one of the queen rooms. The bed was super comfy and all the furnishings are beautiful. The bathroom was the best part of the room. It had 10' ceilings and the shower was huge!  You could've had a party in it.

    When we first showed up it was in time for the wine and cheese they do every evening. They had a wonderful selection of cheese and local California wines.  The continental breakfast in the morning has a nice variety of food. I was surprised at that and all the food was delicious!

    I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!!

    My mom lives in San Francisco but has no room for guests in her apartment.  I discovered Inn at the Presidio last year and felt like it was my new "home away from home".  The rooms are beautifully decorated, not your typical hotel room at all!  The beds are high end comfy and the baths are large and chic with subway tiles and tall glass shower doors.  The wine and cheese hour around the outdoor fire pit (which is on all day long, a nice touch since San Fran can be chilly all day) is just THE BEST.  And so is the Euro style breakfast bar in the morning.  With the Presidio Park out your back door, you can walk through the eucalyptus trees after breakfast and feel refreshed before going on your way.  It's such a special place, I hate to write about it because everyone else will be booking it up!  Actually, people know about it so you have to book far in advance to get a room in this gem.

    Every once in awhile you meet a nice person who goes out of their way to be friendly and giving. Today that person was Armando Pardo. He is the Assistant General Manager for the, "Inn at the Presidio." He invited me to come tour the property today. In addition to meeting his fantastic team of employees, he also gave me a very generous donation for my non profit foundation.

        My fans know I don't just give shout outs like this unless someone really impresses me. I can honestly say this Inn is AMAZING. When I walked in the door of this hidden gem, I was simply in awe. If you are looking to stay at a unique and beautiful property on your next visit to San Francisco, STAY HERE! It could be one of the nicest boutique Inns I have ever come across. Did I mention you can see the Golden Gate from the front porch? It was a pleasure to meet you Armando and I look forward to working with you in the future.

      This place is all about the little details.  Each room has an assortment of books that will help you find hiking trails to restaurants.  I felt like I was in someone's home with all of the little furnishings.  I will say it again because it needs to be repeated.  THIS PLACE WAS AMAZING!  I live in San Francisco and I want to and will stay here!!!!!

    Really, you're replying half a year later?  You never came over to the property to see what we were experiencing, so don't act like you did!  Your phony photos and pompous attitude are winning you no points for customer service.

    This place is absolutely fabulous!  We just returned from an overnight getaway at the Inn at the Presidio.  We only had 24 hours to enjoy on our own while our daughter was at a friend's for a sleepover.  We chose the Inn at the Presidio because it got great reviews, and was close, being in San Francisco, but because it was in the Presidio we figured it would be different enough from downtown where I work that it would feel like an escape.

    We were oh, so right about this place.  We had a queen sweet and were welcomed with a bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates in the room, along with a card wishing me a happy birthday.  Very nice touch.  The room was spacious and very well decorated with period pieces that fit the aesthetic of the building from its time as Army Bachelor Officer's quarters, yet had a lot of more contemporary additions that blended in well.

    Other nice perks were a great wine and cheese in the evening, and a quality continental breakfast in the morning with everything from Oatmeal, pastries, granola, cereal, fruit, toast and eggs.  We're also very picky about our coffee, yet the coffee was quite good.

    We took our wine and cheese out to the front porch and sat in the rocking chairs and chatted while we sipped our wine last night. Others headed out to the back  patio and sat around the fire pit or at the tables back there.

    Everyone working at the Inn was very friendly and made us feel comfortable and at ease and it was a great experience overall.

    The other great joy of this place is it's location.  We had a view of the bay from the livingroom in our suite.  Upon arrival (after we drank some of the sparkling wine) we walked out the back door of the hotel and went on a very nice hike through the Presidio trail which has a trailhead right at the back of the parking lot.  The walk included gorgeous views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate, the National Cematary and more, before winding back to the Main Post with all of the gorgeous old repurposed military base buildings.  

    I really loved this place. The building, service, and setting were all top notch. It will be my go to place for getaways in the city. I can't wait to go back.

    We were here for a work offsite and it was AMAZING!  I highly recommend this gem of a boutique hotel.

    My awesome boss and Recruiting Coordinator organized this great offsite for us in one of their meeting rooms.  The staff provided awesome customer service and everyone was super helpful.

    Although I didn't spend the night, I was able to get a peek at one of their rooms and it was spacious, comfortable and would make for a wonderful stay San Francisco.
    We had a chance to hang out in their fire pit area to unwind after our work meeting and it was just a wonderful relaxing experience.  

    I am definitely going to book a stay here anytime my husband and I want to plan a staycation.  LOVE LOVE it here and definitely recommend.  I love the tiny details they incorporate into their rooms, lounge area and meeting space.

    It's also a very short walk to the Disney hotel and you have awesome views of the Bay.  Parking is also plentiful.  Have fun and definitely stay here!  You will be well taken care of.

    I chose Inn at the Presidio for it's simple yet elegant decor. No other hotel could compare outside of downtown & SOMA area. Hubby & I stayed night before and night of wedding. Their King suite with sitting room was perfect size for my 5 ladies bridal party and me to get our hair & makeup done. Hubby really liked the decor and made for great background for photos. I enjoyed the huge soft bed and the bath tub. Staff was helpful and breakfast layout was plentiful. Price was a bit high but it was worth for our wedding to get to relax before and after the stressful day.

    Lovely Inn located in the Army's Presidio renovated Bachelors Officer Quarters. Just a fantastic location near the Golden Gate Bridge.  Tons of walking and biking trails within walking distance.  Right near the old parade ground.  Many restored barracks/buildings now leased out to various organizations and businesses.  The Walt Disney museum is easy walking distance.  

    The location is a unique gem.  Views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz.  Great just walking around the Presidio as they have many signs and photos of what it looked like in the past.

    The rooms are nice and comfortable with good beds. Very spacious bathroom and shower area.  Small TV and nice closet.  Very enjoyable. Rates vary pending on how large a room you desire. Breakfast is cereal, fruit, rolls, toast, hard boiled eggs, juices and coffee.  

    Note: the previous reviewer was wrong on the bottled water. It is in the room and is free. If you want to purchase the bottle, then that is the $15 charge.

    The hiking and viewing opportunity is unique in all the world.  Can walk down to Chrissy Field which is right on the Bay with spectacular views of the bridge, the Bay and San Francisco. You can drive/walk to the Golden Gate Bridge.  Drive to Baker Beach and enjoy the one mile long beach on the outside of the Golden Gate Entrance.

    Buses:  there are two free transit buses that are 30 min each that take you around the  whole Presidio.  The Hills route takes you up into the back part with beautiful views, forests, the golf course and past many residential areas.  The Chrissy field route takes you to the western edges, past the officer homes you see when you cross the bridge, then down to Chrissy field where you can see all the trails and hikers/bikers galore.

    The Inn is the perfect place to stay to explore and view this wonderful part of the San Francisco area.

    Loved our stay here this past weekend while celebrating my Father's 60th Birthday.

    Everything is beautiful. The Presidio is beautiful. We had beautiful weather. The rooms are beautiful with beautiful bathrooms. The cheese and wine (and freshly baked, still warm, right out of the oven cookies served with milk for the kiddos or pregnant women), is beautiful... if you get there early enough to enjoy all that they have to offer. The continental breakfast spread is beautiful... if you get there early enough to enjoy all that they have to offer.

    We really did enjoy our time here at the Inn at the Presidio. You don't even feel like you're in the city. It fit the occasion perfectly.  The Inn is great for families because the suites are private one bedrooms with a pullout couch in the living room that has a small fireplace that puts off a lot of heat actually. The bathroom is located within the bedroom so any additional guests would have to pass through the bedroom. Oh and their $6 per/day parking rate is very beautiful while staying in the city.

    The Inn is also great for active people/families with trails right outside your back door and all the activities at Crissy Field yelp.com/biz/crissy-fiel… , including rock climbing at Planet Granite yelp.com/biz/planet-gran… , and trampoline dodgeball at House of Air yelp.com/biz/house-of-ai… .

    I would not recommend the Inn for a girls weekend or anyone seeking the night life. The Inn is very quiet and not really close to places of such. I would not recommend the Inn for lovers that want to be pampered. Although the Presidio does have a spa it is not located in or near the Inn. Also the Inn does not have a room service menu available to their guest.

    This place is remote. Come here if you want the woodsy experience. But not if you want the busy San Francisco experience.

    The decor is impeccable - everything looks like you are in a pottery barn or restoration hardware ad.

    However, just a few things fell short - 1. toilet paper - rough. That leaves a poor impression. 2. Carpet in room was DIRTY! You can't tell because it is black/brown. But as an Asian-Am we are used to taking our shoes off. Thank goodness I had socks b/c after 20 minutes walking on the carpet, my socks were filthy! Didn't make me feel very good about the whole experience. Like the floor had cooties. No hotel slippers, so bring your own slippers!

    The bathroom - gorgeous, but 3.no bathmat and housekeeping had forgotten to put soap next to the sink so I had to request soap. It was very nice soap though.

    In our reservation we had specified 2 adults and 2 kids, but there were only 3 sets of towels provided.

    Overall it was spare decor. and cold. Took me a little bit to figure out how to turn on the heater in room (turn the dial on the radiator). At first, I thought it was central heating, but luckily there is room by room control.

    Bed - lovely sheets and blankets and pillows.
    Books in room - great stuff - Shel Silverstein, Disney museum info, local info.

    fireplace - but no fire. Balcony - but shared with others.

    Breakfast - was hearty - oatmeal, toast, bread, (no jam, only marmalade), ham, boiled eggs

    good square footage for buck - bedroom, living room and bathroom for $320 - $360 when taxes etc included. Though really, they shouldn't charge for parking given the empty expanse around them. They should just include that in the price and refund it if you don't have a car.

    we are just finishing up a three day stay at the inn and have had a really lovely time.  the rooms are comfy, nicely decorated, and charming,  the modern upgrades to the bathrooms, electronics, etc. makes it like staying at a charming old inn, with the comfort and luxury of a new hotel.  the breakfasts have been tasty, with a nice assortment of pastries, etc.  the location is beautiful. the presidio is quiet, with beautiful landscaping and easy access to hiking trails, museums, and the golden gate bridge.  pacific and presidio heights are close by too, so getting to the "city" is easy.  

    the reason i am not giving the hotel five stars is because of the staff.  other than tim, who is awesome, the staff is not friendly.  they do just enough to make you comfortable, but they do not make a special effort to improve your stay.  maybe i'm old fashioned, but when i stay at a small inn, i expect the personality of the employees to be especially friendly.  unlike a large hotel, that's the expectation. however, here, i don't think they care too much.  

    i saw the writing on the wall before we even checked in.  the gal at the reservation desk, then the one at the front desk, were both extremely cold and unhelpful.  i was so upset i almost cancelled our reservation, but decided to give it a try.  i called the manager to give him feedback, but he never called me back.

    again, we almost cancelled, but decided to give it a try.  due in part to tim's greeting and help, and the lovely accommodations, we will be back.  however, we really wish they would put more effort into hiring people that actually like people and enjoy their jobs.  

    i recommend staying here, but don't expect a smile to greet you.  unless tim is in.

    Located on the historic, scenic, Presidio of San Francisco, the Inn was once the BOQ- Bachelor Officers Quarters, for the one-time 6th US Army, which traces its history back to the Gold Rush, Civil War, Spanish American War, and every other US military operation, up through Operation Desert Storm, in Iraq... Located in Pershing Hall, namesake of the first (five-star) General of the Armies, since George Washington, the Inn at the Presidio is an homage to the founding of the village of Yerba Buena of 1846-48, before the Gold Rush; when it quickly became the mega-important West Coast powerhouse of San Francisco...
    Built in 1903, (what is now) the Inn survived the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906... The Presidio itself provided the manpower, command, and control to fight the great fire, block by block, until it was eventually contained...
    The Inn building, as well as the Presidio itself, remained a vital Army installation, until closed by the DoD's BRAC (Base Realignment And Closure) post-cold-war Congress... Most of the federal land that served to protect the entire SF Bay Area through every conflict from 1849 forward, through 2 World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq and Afghanistan, became the GGNRA - Golden Gate National Recreation Area, to be administered and operated by the National Park Service... Actual responsibility for most of the Presidio's infrastructure was given to the Presidio Trust, who was told to, "... commit the Army Post to the best civilian uses, and make it an entirely profitable operation, independent of the US taxpayer..."
    The Inn at the Presidio is a truly shining example of that charge to the Presidio Trust... Once the entire interior of the building had been totally upgraded to every modern building code, and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards, historians worked with interior designers to preserve the character of the building, in a highly appropriate Inn/B&B setting... The final result is an amazing affordable (for SF) place to stay, on a uniquely historic, scenic, romantic piece of land, overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge...
    Most of the rooms are more like suites, with separate sitting/living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms... The beds are very comfortable and well appointed; there are flat screens TVs in both sitting room and bedroom... All rooms have complimentary WI-FI, and ours had a fully stocked mini-fridge and bar, bottled water and coffee/teas... In the evening, there is a very generous 5-7 pm Wine and Cheese/Hors D'Oeuvres service... In the morning, from 7-10 am, the Inn has an extensive Continental Breakfast...
    My wife and I absolutely LOVE the Inn at the Presidio, and plan to have my sister, and her husband, a Vietnam-era former Marine combat veteran, stay at the Inn. We had dinner last night, at one of four fabulous restaurants, on the Presidio, within walking distance of the Inn... We will be back ourselves, many times, and will highly recommend it to associates, family, neighbors, and friends in the future...

    Driving on our way to downtown we stopped to check out the place.  We were so impressed with the Front Desk staff showing us the room before booking a stay... Booked 5 minutes later. Free shuttle into town. Complimentary breakfast and wine/cheese, and Wifi... $7/day parking too! Their rates don't change and the service is impeccable.  The room is very nice with a very comfortable bed.  
    If you want to be away from the hussle of the city, stay here and enjoy a relaxing and quiet nite.  

    Our first time in this part of SF, and we'll definitely be back with the whole family.

    Tim, the Front Host recommended great places for dinner and advised us regarding local current events. This helped to plan our the rest of our itinerary.

    This place is considered "pricey", but well worth the services the Inn offers.

    As a native from the Bay area I was looking for a different San Francisco experience during the winter break than my typical trip up to the bay area. After reading a solid review from Erin B. I decided that the Inn at the Presidio was exactly what I was looking for.

    The area of the Presidio has been designated as a state park. The benefits to this while staying at the Inn is that there is no absurd city parking fee (only a small $6 fee that goes to the park) so consider this your coupon because many big hotels charge around $50 for overnight parking!?!

    Although the Inn is not really near the pier there are plenty of attractions that are very close to hotel with either a short walk/bike ride or a short drive:

    *The Disney Family Museum - 5 minute walk and you could easily spend 3-4 hours there. The cafe inside the museum is a decent lunch option as well.
    *Presidio Bowl - A great weeknight excursion that's even closer that the Disney Family Musem. Fun times and a relatively cheap San Francisco date option.
    *Bike riding along the bay -  Unfortunately the complimentary bikes at the Inn were out of commission but there's a place to rent bikes right along the water front. About a 5 minute drive to the bike shop itself. $20 all day I believe.
    *Awesome views of the Golden Gate Bridge - either by car or by bike you have access to excellent views of the bridge. You're also very close to Baker Beach where you can soak up the sun with those stunning views of the bridge. Definitely stroll through for sunset on a clear day.

    The complimentary semi-continental breakfast and the complimentary wine, cheese and cookies are also excellent amenities that you must take advantage of. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The decor has a great rustic-throwback feel which made me feel comfortable for the entire stay.

    I honestly have no complaints and it seems I can't praise the Inn enough for my visit. My next stay in San Francisco will hopefully be at the Inn. If you are considering coming here to the Inn make sure you book well in advance as rooms and room options can fill up quickly. I can't wait to go back so keep the outdoor fire pit warm and save a seat for me :D

    The Inn is ensconced in the building in which the bachelor officers once lived on Moraga Street. The retrofit is one of the most extensive we've ever seen. The building looks new, yet absolutely matches the architectural style of the surrounding Presidio buildings. We were reminded of Cavallo Point (across the Golden Gate bridge), as this is very similar. We were informed that Cavallo Point is a "sister" property.

    Our suite, with separate and well divided living room and bedroom, was very well appointed in period mission style furniture. Everything was very comfortable, clean, and a delight to the eye and also to the other four senses. The Inn has many features that make it a destination...why go out?

    The staff is very attentive and informative. We were fully apprised of dining options from the local fine dining restaurants to the Off the Grid (food truck rendezvous that occurs each Sunday on the Parade Grounds (a very nice experience)).

    In-room complimentary filtered water is cheerfully refilled...or you can do it yourself if you want...quickly and easily in the wee small hours of the morning. There is also very drinkable complementary wine, cheese, and an abundance of very tasty horderves offered from 5-7 P.M. each evening.

    The art on the walls and the books in the library are all about the Presidio and the age in which it reached its zenith. In our room, we had a vast array of historical coffee table books, one of which was a book on tents, "Past Tents".

    The grounds surrounding the Inn have many table and chair sets and a huge fire pit that warms you as you enjoy conversations with the very interesting array of fellow guests.

    You are in The City, yet the only thing you hear most of the time is the wind in the trees. The spaces surrounding the Inn are abundantly open, and walking/bike riding is a delight. You forget where you are, especially when you find out that parking is only $6 a night!

    The Inn is very near the Disney Family Museum, and we toured it completely on the second day of our stay. We were thrilled over and over again at the beautiful sites within the Presidio, which includes Crissy Field and the Palace of Fine Arts.

    We highly recommend the Inn at the Presidio. Enjoy!

    I recently stayed at the Inn and enjoyed it so much..the setting is lovely ,easy to walk to the Marina area , or you could find great trails right outside the Inn. A wine service was offered, very complete and you could sit outside near the fire pit.to enjoy it.
    Breakfast was ample, fresh and really good.
    The Inn itself is so charming, the rooms are comfortable, bathrooms are stocked and large.
    I liked the nostalgia that was part of the historic feeling of the place, it added so much for me
    along with the art and ambiance .
    The prices are a bit high especially if you expect a lot of bells and whistles , but, I felt it was worth it.

    My partner and I received a gift certificate to stay at this location. The room was nice, and large, and nicely furnished, as well the entire Inn. The wine and cheese was delightful, although we really didn't get a chance to intermingle with anyone as people were somewhat keeping to themselves. The morning Continental Breakfast was nice with fresh fruit and tasty muffins.  But in as much as we wanted to give this a 4 star rating, when the cost is taking into perspective (even though gift certificate was used), the stay was not worth almost $450/night. Mid $200's at most. And to charge $7/night for parking seems a little silly given the price of the hotel, especially since the parking lot in the back is basically only for the Inn guests. Free Wifi worked nice.  Wouldn't stay there again, but was nice to have stayed there at least once.

    What a charming gem! It is a steeped in history but very comfortable.  It was a comfortable bed.  Even the pull out was good.  The sitting area was large.  The look of the place is simultaneously old school SF and yet modern.

    On nice touch was that in the mini bar I was able to get a quarter bottle of Chivas Regal for $25.  That is a deal for a mini bar.

    It is not close to much, being in the Presidio.  But there is Uber!

    I just realized I never wrote a review for this lovely dog friendly boutique hotel! Shame on me!

    We truly enjoyed our stay here. We were obviously traveling with our dog, so it was crucial in the decision making process of where to stay that it was a dog friendly place.

    They weren't just dog friendly, they were dog pampering (provided beautiful dog bed, bowls, treats) and even set us up with a dog sitter for the days we wanted to sightsee and shop, and they gladly kept our little furball at the desk with them for shorter outings like dinner. It was convenient and great for our dog who prefers to be around people.

    The hotel is quaint cool with a very nice remodel of the old officers quarters in the presidio. That's important if you want to stay here. You are IN THE PRESIDIO....which is like a massive park....so if you're looking to stay in downtown San Fran in a bustling city environment this is not your place....BUT it IS the place for awesome wine hour by the fire pit, a nice breakfast and a beautiful room with a great comfy bed with the BEST views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The staff was all wonderful and we truly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay again. There are only about 20 rooms, so it books up fast! I LOVED my morning runs here, it was wonderful being able to walk out the door of the hotel into a huge park with a view and go run!
