This iconic mid-century motor lodge in the Castro hasn’t changed much since its opening in the ‘50s—therein lies the basis of its appeal. Today it’s owned by Brittney Beck, the granddaughter of the original founders, and run by Lulu Franco, the manager for nearly 40 years. Though the Palm Springs-style exterior recalls the past, the rooms have been recently remodeled with new furniture and rain showers. Rooms are adorned with yellow and blue accent paint and include refrigerators and coffee makers. On warm days, head up to the convivial rooftop sundeck (you may spot some honeybees buzzing around the hotel’s sustainable rooftop hives). Bonus: parking and WiFi are free.
