Family-run since it opened in 1985, the Metro is by no means fancy, but it’s got a warm, welcoming staff and clean, basic rooms, making it perfect for people seeking nothing more than a safe, comfy, centrally located place to crash. Front desk staff is happy to help with suggestions for things to do, see, and eat in Haight-Ashbury and beyond, and the artwork sprinkled throughout the hotel is original and painted by family members. There’s a pleasant garden area with benches in the back, and around the corner from the main entrance is the property’s studio with a kitchenette, living room, and a private entrance. For travelers looking to spend time in an area with a different kind of history—more 1960s hippie counterculture, less 1850s Gold Rush and railroad boom—the Metro Hotel is a solid budget bet. You may be able to find street parking, but be aware that many streets in the area have 2-hour time limits for non-residents, and parking violations are expensive.
