Top 10 San Francisco Budget Hotels

Hotel Frank

Formerly just one of a number of accommodations to clutter Union Square, the boutique Hotel Frank is now a standout after an extension renovation that was completed in 2009. This San Francisco budget hotel caters to the trendy: Rooms are beautifully furnished with 1930s décor, houndstooth-patterned carpeting, crocodile-patterned leather adorning striking emerald green headboards, vintage white leather couches, geometric Art Déco light fixtures, and marble-accented bathrooms. There are all the standard amenities in room (including complimentary Wi-Fi) and a concierge on hand. While Hotel Frank doesn’t have its own restaurant, it shares a space with Max’s on the Square (room service is also available), and a number of Union Square restaurants and hole-in-the-wall Asian fusion joints are just around the corner. Thanks to its position on noisy Geary Street (both a pro and a con), rooms aren’t always the quietest; don’t forget to pack a pair of earplugs for your stay.

Deluxe queen rooms available from $129/night, primarily during winter months. On occasion, the hotel runs specials where you can find deals as low as $109;
