Beck's Motor Lodge is standard fare as motels go--a basic bed in a dingy, smallish room. Built in 1974, with 58 air-conditioned rooms -- some even have fireplaces or whirlpools. Parking is available, and dataports, a mini-fridge, coffeemaker, and an ironing board with iron are in the rooms.
The advantage of staying here is that it's within walking distance of the Castro district, the gay area. Muni F trolley also runs along Market St. It's a busy area full of traffic and people.
