  • The Mission district, home to the city’s Latin community and a great hub for affordable, quality eating and bar-hopping, might be a great place to start if you are looking for cheap hotels in San Francisco. Try the San Francisco Inn, a cozy and historic bed and breakfast in a Victorian building in the heart of the Mission.
  • If you would like to visit high-end areas like Union Square and Nob Hill, or other landmark neighborhoods like Haight-Ashbury and Chinatown, consider staying in the surrounding areas and passing by on a cable car or bus. San Francisco hotel prices can drop significantly just half mile away from the center. Try the reasonably priced and comfortable SW hotel, which is located in the Jackson Square neighborhood and within walking distance of Union Square.
  • Staying a bit off-grid will not stop you from making the most of the city. San Francisco is compact enough that its sprawling public transportation system keeps it well connected.
  • The Bay Area can get busy, and if you are traveling by car, finding free parking can be tricky. Consider looking for San Francisco hotels that offer free parking. For example, the elegant Hotel Drisco in Pacific Heights offers free parking for hotel guests. Castle Inn, which is within walking distance of Nob Hill, is a good choice for budget travelers.
