    Depends on what you're looking for, Becks is a motor lodge right on Market in the Castro and I think they're remodeling the place. I think there are some b&b places in the Castro too. I'd Google places, check them out online and then post their names for some comments. Also, yelp them. Most of the hotels are downtown towards Union Square but the train (both above and below ground) runs up Market to the Castro and it's only $2 each way, not hard to get there from most hotels downtown.

    Email me if you have specific questions. When are you planning to come? Vacation? Business? What are you wanting to do/see/enjoy?

    For two days of fun after business in San Jose. Wanted a taste of the Castro area. Let loose and have some masculine fun. I did see beck's. looks interesting. There was also a b & b that looked interesting. Not a big bar person but might enjoy watching the men there .

    I agree. There aren't many hotels in the Castro, but it is very accessible by public transportation. If you really want to stay in the Castro I would say look for a place on AirBnb instead.

    Check out & read the reviews for the Drisco Hotel. I've stayed there & can confirm the reviews are true. This would be one of the very best places for you to stay. You like to run, and Pacific Heights (including the Lyon Street steps, the Presidio, the Marina Green, and too many more great places to mention are within reach of the Drisco. (You can make a trip down to the Castro to check out the vibrant scene there for a few hours, but there is so much more to see & experience in other parts of The City). Have a blast and see as much of The City as you can in the amount of time you have.

    I was there a few months back. Stayed at the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf. It's about a $12 cab ride to the Castro, but I found it on Hotwire for about the cheapest rate possible for that caliber hotel in SF. I'd recommend it if you don't mind staying that far from the Castro.

    If that's the case then I'd withdraw my Fisherman's Wharf recommendation. It's very family-oriented/touristy. Honestly the crowd there looks more like Disney World than San Francisco haha.

    You'll be about 5 or 6 blocks from the muni station where you can grab a train that takes you right to the Castro Street station in the middle of the Castro. Trains might be done running by the time you come home but a cab from there should only be about $6 - 8 max (probably less). If you need more info, email me.
