When I have friends come and visit, I usually tell them to stay at the Geary Parkway. It's located in the Richmond District and in a very quiet neighborhood on Geary Blvd. The offer many discount rates for advance reservation. If you don't know San Francisco too well, they would also recommend sites to see and if you want them to make reservations they will at no charge. They just remodeled the hotel and painted the outside and it looks really attractive. If you visit S.F., try staying at the Geary Parkway Motel, you won't be disappointed.
