Top tips for finding perfect San Francisco hotel deals

  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in San Francisco, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in San Francisco in December and April.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in San Francisco if you stay on a Saturday. The opposite is true for, Tuesday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 90 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your San Francisco accommodation.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in San Francisco found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was C$ 282, while the most expensive was C$ 864.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in San Francisco for 3 days.
  • The Mission district, home to the city’s Latin community and a great hub for affordable, quality eating and bar-hopping, might be a great place to start. Hotels are cheaper in this area. Try the San Francisco Inn, a cozy and historic bed and breakfast in a Victorian building in the heart of the Mission.
  • If you would like to visit high-end areas like Union Square and Nob Hill, or other landmark neighborhoods like Haight-Ashbury and Chinatown, consider staying in the surrounding areas and passing by on a cable car or bus. Accommodation prices can drop significantly just half mile away from the center. Try the reasonably priced and comfortable SW hotel, which is located in the Jackson Square neighborhood and within walking distance of Union Square.
  • Staying a bit off-grid will not stop you from making the most of the city. San Francisco is compact enough that its sprawling public transportation system keeps it well connected.
  • The Bay Area can get busy, and if you are traveling by car, finding free parking can be tricky. Consider looking for a hotel that offers free parking. For example, the elegant Hotel Drisco in Pacific Heights offers free parking for hotel guests. Castle Inn, which is within walking distance of Nob Hill, is a good choice for budget travelers.
