Time travel back to the Summer of Love by staying at this famous, socially conscious B&B in the heart of Haight-Ashbury. The founder and current owner designed the 18 themed rooms to reflect the eclectic spirit of San Francisco. A tie-dye canopy and lava lamp decorate the Summer of Love room, while flower bedspreads and white wicker decor pay homage to the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. Beware—the hotel is located near rowdy bars, so you’ll hear a fair amount of street noise. While the rooms are small and the decor dated, if you’re looking for an inn with hippie history and loads of groovy character, you’ve just found it.
