We stayed at the Touchstone hotel for one night. Annnd that was plenty. The rooms were very small, cramped, dirty and very dated. When you walked in through the door the floor squeaked and the carpet was filthy. Looked like it hadn’t been vacuumed in...More
My son and I had twin beds and private bathroom. It was like a college dorm room only with private bathroom. It was clean and had usual toilet amenities (shampoo, body wash, hair dryer,). The location is great. A couple of blocks from Union Square,...More
We stayed here for three nights which was three too many. The rooms are very small, dated and dirty with scuffed walls. The tap in our room in the bathroom dripped constantly and the street noise outside made it impossible to sleep. We didn’t feel...More
If you are looking for somewhere to stay near the action and you have a budget then this is the place. Two blocks from Union Square it’s handy to restaurants and shops.

I stayed at this hotel as it was close to the business I needed to conduct. Union square is a couple of blocks away and you can catch the cable car right down the street. This is a budget older hotel that tries to deserve...More
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

Yes definitely ditch the car. A friend of mine got her car towed and San Fran has the highest fine in the US i was shocked! She had to pay $550 (yes $550!) to get her car out, they don't even offer a payment plan-nothing. No mercy. The signage too was placed lower on the post (knee length, so when passenger opened the car door, the door blocked the sign so thats how she missed it.
Anyways, no car is necessary, BART is highly efficient. Use LYFT/Uber if needed. For me I signed up for Lyft right before my trip (watch out for deals) and got $50 credit split into 10 rides which was VERY useful.
If you need a car for long distance travel to the woods or yosemite or anythin, just rent if for those planned days. Its quite affordable at $40+ a day.
