“Good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Good location to visit San Francisco. Very good the inside parking. The room is big and clean with a good bathroom. They were renovating part of the hotel during my stay.The only note is on a 50 $ deposit that isn't mentioned during reservation process.

Room Tip: The newest are in the back side of the central building with the room's door on an inside corrid...

My partner and I have been staying here for more than 25 years and you cannot beat this location. We were there for Labor Day weekend and the motel is in the process of undergoing a complete renovation of the rooms. We were able to get one of our favorite room locations overlooking Market Street. Our room was one of the first to be completed during the renovation and it is fabulous. It is a remarkable makeover from before. The HDTV, free wi-fi with strong signals, fabulous mattress, bedding and pillows as well as the bath are awesome. Best part of Beck's is that after a day of sightseeing you can just drive into the parking lot and not have to move your car again as you are steps away from the bars and restaurants located in Castro. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the new renovated rooms and the ones that overlook Market Street

Let me start by saying that I'm not much of a "Motor Lodge" kind of guy ... can't really remember the last time I stayed at a place where the door to the room opens to the outside. Having said that, however, let me hasten to add that I'm planning on going back this fall, and staying here again. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the price was fair, and (best of all) it's right in the middle of everything I wanted to do -- I walked everywhere, to great restaurants and bars, nightlife, parks, etc. Can't beat it from that standpoint. Friendly staff, great service. If you want something affordable in the heart of the Castro, I'd recommend it for sure.

We expected air conditioning but the friendly staff brought an extra fan, good replacement. Ha to leave door open for a time in evening but felt safe doing so. Location is perfect in Castro district and straight friendly! Rooms were clean. We'd love to go back after remodel.

This was our first visit in San Francisco and at this hotel - and we really liked both. So nice and gay friendly! The staff were very nice and helpful to us, and so were the other guests. The room was nice and well cleaned and had a refrigirator and a coffee maker. We got new towels, sheets and soaps every day. Huge sun deck with great view over Market Street. Great location in wonderful Castro, very close to cable car stops, restaurants and shops.

The only bad things we experienced were that the "hot" water in the shower wasn't always hot and that the walls were so thin we could hear very clearly when our neighbors had sex. Hopefully this will change soon, since the hotel is going through renovation.

We will definitely come back to this city and this hotel again!

We only just checked in, came to our room after a lengthy drive from Yosemite. The room is FULL of misquitoes, we are all bitten, when we ask the front desk for help, they advised us to purchase our own fly spray and it was our problem. When we said we might check out.. they just didnt care. Its ashame not only does the place need tob be remodelled, so to does the attitude of the staff. My advice AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Dont come, or choose another hotel. Oh but it does have parking.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm shocked to hear that you experienced mosquitoes as I have never heard this before and mosquitoes in San Francisco are very rare. Possibly the bites were from Yosemite? Regardless, I know that mosquito bites are annoying, and I'm sorry you had to deal with them and that my staff was not sympathetic to your needs.

Thank you for staying with us.

Don't be fooled by their website. Rooms are gross and worn out. Locals say the only people who stay at Beck's Motor Lodge are drug users and prostitutes. I believe it. Staff is unhelpful and not friendly. If you book a 3 nt stay, you may be asked to CHECK OUT in the middle of your stay and move rooms. And, BTW, you can't move directly to your new room. They will make you check out at noon and check back in a 3 PM to continue your 3 night stay.
