We will be back!
Had a wonderful visit to SF to see our daughter. The folks at the Monte Cristo couldn't have been any nicer or more accommodating. The room was perfect and the bed So cozy and comfortable! Breakfast was delicious too!

Don't think twice, stay here.
Cleanliness is a top priority for me and my room at the Monte Cristo was impeccable. The staff were all incredibly warm, friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was delicious and all of the little touches were appreciated. Check in and check out were swift and easy.

Very Good 8.0
Very helpful personnel - good breakfast - newspapers available - I would suggest a bar to grab in the shower if necessary to avoid falling (often Helpful for older people).

Nice retreat form the large big city Hotels
Stayed there for our Anniversary, as it was close to the Cliff House. The hotel was very nice, and in a good and clean part of the city. The Service was excellent, and the breakfast was outstanding. The fresh homemade quiche was the bomb. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that when it was first built in 1875, it was a Bordello & Saloon, then a Speakeasy in the 1920's, boy if those walls could talk. The joke of the night was that I was my wife's customer for the evening, lol. Oh, and the bathrooms have Bidet's.

A wonderful, relaxing place to stay.
The Monte Cristo Inn is very welcoming. The staff is friendly, efficient, and quiet, as is the hotel. Their breakfast room always has coffee and teas and goodies out to eat, including gluten free freshly baked goods. Their breakfast is excellent - a choice of cereal, plus fresh blueberries, apricots, pineapple, blackberries, etc. AND an excellent array of choices from the kitchen of eggs, bacon, ham, rolls, muffins, bagels.
