Budget Hotels and Hostels

  1. Coventry Motor Inn

    A good, basic motel, offering large pleasant rooms with bay windows, located on the Marina’s “Motel Row.” It isn’t beautiful, but it’s functional and reliable. All rooms are no-smoking, and parking is complimentary. A minimum stay may apply on some weekends.

  2. Beck’s Motor Lodge

    This standard 1960s motel is handy for the Castro, the Lower Haight, and the Mission. It’s one of those no-frills, what-you-see-is-what-you-get places, simple and very serviceable, and quiet, given its prime location. Free parking is a plus, and cable TV, too.

    Vaguely English Tudor in style, with a slate roof, the rooms are comfortable and fairly large, and a few have bay windows. The location is convenient to the Marina and Pacific Heights. Free parking, cable TV, and in-room coffee maker. All no-smoking.

  5. Marina Inn

    The charm of a San Francisco Victorian awaits you here. The marble lobby is the focal point of this four-story hotel built in 1924, and the sitting room is the setting for Continental breakfasts. After a day’s sightseeing, return to the inn for afternoon sherry.
