Second time staying here and its super convenient. It’s clean, quiet, easy check in and check out. Only thing, make sure you look at street parking signs. I️ read one but missed the other... and had a parking ticket. Saul mentions the parking in his description so it does not reflect on the quality of the stay. Definitely recommend it!

Great location, easy to find and access. Parking was much easier than anticipated. Saul was a great host and keeps It clean. We had a perfect stay. Note — The Craftsman has a relatively soft mattress.

Great location, in about 30 minutes in SF. Never saw Saul, but communication was great. Bed could be a little bit more comfortabel. Clean room and bathroom/kitchen.

It's a home with various rooms that are all rented out on Air bnb so it feels a bit like going to a hotel. It's nice because you have tons of privacy and it's time efficient.
