This standard courtyard hotel isn't just cheap, it's easy. Rooms start at less than $100 for one, and there's no parking fee. The BART station is four blocks away, and it's a two-minute walk to the vibrant restaurant scene along Gough Street. Sure, the creature comforts and the towels at this Hayes Valley location aren't world class. But the value is. There's even a Zipcar rental lot a half-block away. 465 Grove St.; (415) 864-4040. http://www.daysinn.com. Doubles from $95.
