If you are like me and don't spend much time in your room on vacation, then finding a clean room with fewer amenities is a great way to save a little money.

The Moser, Beresford, and Grant Plaza are just three of the highly rated, yet affordable, hotels near Union Square. Learn more about these and other top rated cheap hotels.

San Francisco Motels

These are also light on amenities, but some have free parking which is a huge plus. Many sit in older buildings, but have been recently renovated.

Additional Things to Consider Before Booking Your Trip

Here are a few additional ways to save money on your stay in San Francisco.

  • Travel During Low Season: This isn't an option for everyone, but it's a great way to save money on hotels. Many run specials during the low season, so if you have flexibility in your schedule, this will save you some money. The low season here is during November (except Thanksgiving Weekend), January (except New Year's Eve), February, and March.

  • Save by Booking Your Flight and Hotel Together: You might even be able to find some deals if you book your flight and room at the same time. Almost all of the online retailers offer this as a search option on their home page.

  • Watch Out for Parking Fees: If you are driving or renting a car, parking in San Francisco is usually not included. At most hotels, parking will run you around $35 to $40 a night! Make sure you don't get caught in the trap of booking a cheaper room and then paying a fortune for parking. If you are driving, check the parking details before booking.
