Beck's Motor Lodge *

An old, not so fancy motel in the Castro
This authentic lower-end motor lodge hasn't changed in years. Not strictly a gay place to stay, but its right on the main Market Street part of the Castro. In the 70s, this place had a reputation ("leave your door open to meet a new friend") but it has tamed over the years though it still can get very busy with non-guests late at night. Many a local has awakened the next morning in one of the very simple rooms (which radiate around a balcony and parking lot) in the arms of a visiting stranger.

    "Hi all, highly recommended this place. Don't rely on its previous reputation. Rooms are better than most standard hotels and great location."

    Newly updated - wow
    I have to say. I haven't stayed here/been to SF in like 5 years -- stayed here again because I love the location and WOW. Room was completely updated (looks like the whole room was gutted and renovated from floor to ceiling) and clean and chic. Very nice and very impressed. Amazing fresh clean bathroom, huge shower, and brand new temperature control systems. Not sure what they could have done to improve this even more - except maybe a rack to put your suitcase on (and that's being picky) . Front desk staff was very accommodating and helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again!
