Who is "we"? What is your budget? What are you looking for?

We are looking for a mid-priced room ($150 - $250) within walking distance to the bay. Thanks.

You will only find "free parking" with motels, for the most part, but the good news is that your budget is generous that you can fold the cost of parking into a very reasonable price, and get a lot of bang for your buck.

Secondly, San Francisco has ocean on three sides (west, north, east). When you say "bay," what do you have in mind?

It sounds like you're looking for a nice hotel, yes? You can get a lot for that price range.

I love the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero.

It's in the downtown/financial district with lovely views of the Bay from a balcony room (you will have to reserve or get upgraded to that category: request upper floor, as close to the Bay as possible).

You have the Embarcadero stores, the Ferry Building marketplace, BART, and a cable car line at your doorstep.

It's not for everybody in that it is a fairly business-y location, and the parking is a whopping $38/day - but the overall price is in your range -- especially if you can get one of the approx $149 rates at Hyatt.com.

Try the Argonaut Hotel. Reasonably priced and the best location in San Francisco. The wife, daughter and myself went the week of Thanksgiving and had a blast. Best part is that you don't need a car!
