    It's cold in San Francisco in the summer - why don't you wait until September or October - it's nicer, less tourists.
    When you say less expensive it depends on what you are looking for - we had friends who recently stayed at the Best Western Americania on 7th Street at Mission - quiet, nice, maybe not the bets location, but conveniently located near Market to get public transportation.
    Lombard Street has lots of hotels as well at reasonable prices. almost 7 years ago

    Look into Medjool on Mission St near 21st St. It has a restaurant on the 1st floor, a bar on the roof & accommodations in between. almost 7 years ago

    I lived across the street from the Chateau Tivoli in the Alamo Sq area. Great old building, neighborhood sits between the Fillmore ( Pacific Heights) & lower Haight (my brother stayed there and liked it). Good room rate options and access to downtown is decent (#5 and Geary 38 zoom you down town quickly)

    Hotel San Remo is in North Beach. Also heard good things about the Hotel Mirabelle in the Mission for budget, good quality and good location. Yes, Medjool is also a place to look into too, though be sure to get a room that is away from the rooftop bar if on an upper floor.

    Airbandb.com and istopover.com would have other options. I'm a big fan of bidding on Priceline. almost 7 years ago

    I stayed almost across the road from the Americana at the Best Western Plus Carriage Inn. http://www.bestwesterncalifornia.com/hotels/best-western-plus-carriage-inn-san-francisco It has nicely appointed, full of chic character rooms, but no dining room far as I remember. They brought my breakfast up to my room so basically you get a nice room, okay breakfast & nothing else however the price was good. Try some of the discount hotel websites. The area is a bit rough, frequented by some who have fallen on the wrong side of the tracks, but I wasn't there long enough for it to bother me & I was on a cossetted tour on one of those days. Think I remember something about some kind of shuttle from that area to Union Square but I don't think, if I'm correct in remembering, that it runs very late into the night. There is a small roof garden with a hot tub which was out of action when I was there if my memory serves me correctly. Mind you it looks like they've done the Best Western Americana up so it looks like it's improved, it hadn't as good a reputation as the Carriage Inn back then. Basically if you like old world nostalgia go for the Carriage Inn, if you like it more modern choose the Americana. Both are a bit inland in the thick of the city & not out by the beautiful Bay.

    I stayed on my previous time in SF at a YHA hostel in the Bay area near Fort Mason. It was just a short downhill walk to Fishermans Wharf through beautiful woodland. The location was beautiful & amazing, one of the best in SF I reckon. However it's a pity the hostel didn't live up to the location, it was no great shakes so unless you're really skint I wouldn't really recommend it. It's housed in a historic building, it looks & feels historic if you ask me & I don't mean that in a nice way. If you decide to go that route try & get a small dorm/private room otherwise you might end up feeling like a homeless person. http://sfhostels.com/fishermans-wharf/photos/ almost 7 years ago

    I stayed at a boutique Russian Hill hotel called the Hyde Regency a few years ago. It was a cool, quirky little place that was right on the Hyde Street trolley line and an easy (if not steep) stroll to Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown. almost 7 years ago
