Hyatt Place is about as far from his school as you can get and overlooks both a gas station, furniture store under construction and one of the best hot green chile restaurants Horseman's Haven. Nearby restaurant/bars are The Ranch House, Blue Corn Café, Applebee's and Buffalo Wild Wings but not a lot of nightlife as in music/dancing. Other hotels/motels I would look at are Doubletree, BW Plus, Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express close to the same restaurants/bars.
There are really not many nice bar/night spots in that direction. As Casa mentioned, some of the restaurants have bars; I would recommend Blue Corn Cafe, but it is down on Rodeo Road. Its also a brew pup.
Los Potrillos restaurant is nearby SFUAD, but I have never tried their bar. In the area is also Back Road pizza, which does serve drinks, a sort of college hangout, take-out pizza, very informal, and also Second Street Brewery, which you might like (brew pup, sometimes entertainment)
