There are many great Hotels in San Francisco! I have stayed in some of the best and some of the worst! And sometimes not with that much difference in cost!!
Pacifica has great locations of it's own and is still extremely close to the city and the airport! This is a good alternative!
This hotel has been re-branded as HOTEL ABRI. Website calls it "a trendy modern urban oasis."
This is an inn decorated in early american [colonial] style. It is just two blocks away from chic Union Square. The rooms and public areas are very attractive indeed. They serve great muffins for breakfast [do we detect a theme here?] and wine at the end of the day. It is reasonable for the area, but no longer inexpensive, so see the Marina Inn above!
The inns on Lombard St. just south of the Golden Gate Bridge in the relatively safer Marina District are clean, comfortable, and more reasonably priced...plus parking is free.

I stayed at the Pt Montara Lighthouse Hostel about 20 miles south of San Fransisco. It was small and homey, and the view was so amazing. It's right on a cliff overlooking the ocean and a really great place to watch the sun set.
$15 for hostel members, and I think around $20 for non-members.
Union Square and surroundings is the best place to stay. Close to everything, either walking, cable car or bus. It can be noisy in the morning with all the little service alleys behind the buildings. Don't expect great service if you're staying in a low/middle range price hotel. You not gonna get that standard chain hotel treatment. But that's ok...
We stayed in a hotel just off Union Square, can't remember the name but there are a few really good ones round there, and it is a really central location, a good starting point for exploring the city
There are various hotels in San Francisco, however the price may be a little bit high, around US90 - US200 per night, therefore you may stay in motels and the quality of those motels are very good, clean and tidy, price ranges from US50 - US70 per night.
Price : US50 - US 70, usually have free coffee and some offers free donut. Most of them have swimming pool and local tours arrangements.
I do not recommed this place, but there is a place called the Golden Bear Hotel. It's actually a motel, and was kind of dirty. The only good thing was that it gave HBO and tons of free matches. The only reasons you would want to stay here is if all the other hotels and inns are taken.
The stains on the ceiling were very fascinating. The bathrooms were not as clean as they should be and there was a strange odor outside my room. Those were some of the most unique qualities about this place.
We stayed at an expensive hotel near Union Square (very pricey). My recommendation to anyone who wants to visit San Francisco first go to www.sftravel.com. (I wish I had before we went.) The next time we go, I want to try out some places that are away from the hustle and bustle ... maybe a B&B or an apartment.
We walked through this area, and it's fairly safe at night. Plus there are alot of panoramic views of the rest of the city.
