Noe Valley, CA Travel Tips
The charm of any San Francisco bed and breakfast is that, unlike hotels, they lie in the heart of residential neighborhoods. This is no different at Noe’s Nest, where residential street parking is restricted to two hours Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. There are no restrictions evenings after 6:00 p.m., Saturdays or Sundays.
Since San Francisco has excellent public transportation, we highly recommend using the many different options available. A BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) Station is located a few blocks away, at Mission and 24th Street. As well as bringing you into the city from both San Francisco and Oakland airports, BART can take you into downtown San Francisco with reasonable fares. For more details on taking BART from San Francisco and Oakland airports, check out our location information or the BART website.
Noe’s Nest is also close to the SF Muni Metro train system, located at Church and 24th Street, which will take you downtown for a small fare. You can find out more details on our location page.
If you wish to do day trips to Napa Wine country (a two-hour drive north), Carmel/Monterey (a 3-hour drive south along the Pacific Coast Highway via the scenic HWY 1), or Yosemite National Park (a four-hour drive inland into the Sierra Mountains), we suggest you rent a car for the day. We recommend Enterprise car rental which has two locations nearby, one on Van Ness Avenue and one on 8th Street, south of Market. Enterprise will pick you up from Noe’s Nest or offer you $5 toward a taxi if no driver is available.
If you already have a vehicle and need to park during your visit, we recommend the Mission & Bartlett Garage at 3255 21st Street, between Mission and Valencia Streets. Current rates are $2.50 to $5.00 per hour depending on the time of day, with a daily maximum of $27.00. Current hours of operation are:
- Mon-Thurs: 6 a.m. – 12 a.m.
- Friday: 6 a.m. – 2 a.m.
- Sat-Sun: 8 a.m. – 12 a.m.
