San Francisco’s Best Low-Priced Hotels

SF Without Going Broke

San Francisco has a shocking amount of little to no-cost activities to enjoy. What makes this NorCal area a surprisingly budget-friendly location for travelers is its diverse landscape. There’s refined city life readily available, but there’s also breathtaking natural life in and around downtown. And luckily, beautiful scenery is free. Hiking, gardens, free music in beautiful parks, biking across the Golden Gate Bridge…the list goes on.



Good Hotel

The Good Hotel is all things playful, bright, and good-natured. With designs infused with reclaimed materials and eco-friendly endeavors, it’s not only a refreshing place to stay, but it’s also doing good for the environment. Located in the beloved SoMa district, this spot is just moments away from some of San Francisco’s most famous attractions. Their sustainable amenities, bright and lively design, perfect location, and friendly staff keep us coming back for more.

Kimpton Sir Francis Drake

The Sir Francis Drake is kind of like the moody rich kid of the neighborhood who has all the best parties. This Kimpton location delivers on style, nightlife, location, amenities, and even food. They’re known for their red-suited Beefeater doormen and glamorous decor, and we love these above-and-beyond touches. Nestled right into Union Square, the Sir Francis Drake offers luxurious guest rooms; a delicious Italian eatery, Scala’s Bistro; and a beautiful lobby bar. The star of the show, however, is their Starlight Room–a plush nightclub that prides itself on its glamorous celebrations.

Phoenix Hotel

If we told you that you could stay at a hotel that famous musicians have loved for decades, would you want to? Because you can at The Phoenix. This quirky, 1950’s-era motor court hotel is equal parts modern and retro, with style that harkens back to its cool history. The indie guest rooms, public spaces, and awesome pool all offer rock n’ roll flair, yet plenty of comfort. Their bar and restaurant, Chambers eat + drink , is also a fan favorite.

Their famous Redwood Room bar is a super cool place to hang and enjoy gourmet cocktails and San Francisco DJs.
