Rodeway Inn San Francisco, currently Taylor Street Hotel, has joined Choice Hotels and is accepting reservations through Choice Privileges for stays beginning June 22. The deal here is the hotel has reward nights at 8,000 points per night through August 20 available for booking today. The posted reward rate is 8,000 points through September 15, 2022.

What makes this hotel an inexpensive option this week is Choice Privileges points are on sale at 25% off the regular purchase price through May 18.

The regular rate to buy Choice Privileges points drops to $10.30 per 1,000 points when you buy 10,000 or more points. With this sale, the cost per 1,000 points drops to $7.725 per dollar when you buy 16,000 or more points or as low as $61.80 to buy 8,000 points.

I’m fairly certain you can’t find another hotel in San Francisco this summer for less than $62 per night.  

TripAdvisor Rating = #229 of 251 hotels places this property in the lowest 10% of hotels ranked in San Francisco. The hotel is rated one-star. 

The location is a good central location near Union Square for a tourist in San Francisco, with nearby upscale hotels like JW Marriott on the next block. The exact location is also in the proximity of the Tenderloin district, one of the street rough areas of San Francisco for sidewalks layered with homeless people day and night. Even tourists staying in upscale hotels like InterContinental San Francisco will face the reality of homeless people living on the streets of the city.

Anyway, if you are game and favor price over competing concerns, then Rodeway Inn is an option for cheap summer nights in San Francisco.

    That’s not exactly great living, but having a roof over your head in San Francisco at all these days is pretty spectacular.

    Glad you’re blogging again!!

    In Summer 2020 I found a similar deal at the Comfort Inn Old Town San Diego. If my memory serves me right, it was 10k points per night. The hotel was nice enough but after a day there I realized it was doubling as a homeless shelter. That wasn’t a deal breaking issue for my family and we had a comfortable weeklong stay. I’m not suggesting that the SF Rodeway Inn is being used in a similar manner but if this is something that may bother some of your readers, I’d advise having a thorough read through of recent TripAdvisor reviews as this should give an indication if this is happening. Thanks for posting these recent deals – I am enjoying your comeback.

    My cheapest San Francisco room on a paid rate was $49 for one night at Sheraton San Francisco Fisherman’s Wharf in November 2009 during the financial crisis.

    Interestingly, I mention in the post that I would not be taking advantage of the deal, but I recall I did stay there that Sunday night and I saw the movie Up in the Air in Denver, CO a few weeks later.

    The cash rates at that property tend to be cheap too. I’ve actually stayed there before and while its not horrible, its not great either. That close to Van Ness can get iffy sometimes.

    If you are into points and miles hobby, are you really staying at the Rodeway Inn?

    @Sonu – some people need to save money.
    When I traveled to New Zealand in 2016 on a $236 Qantas SFO-AKL via SYD economy flight I stayed in Econolodge hotels for 8 nights in Auckland and Napier on 6,000 and 8,000 points award nights since I did not want to spend a lot of money or points on a mistake fare solo trip when I was traveling to Europe a few weeks later with my wife.

    The cities of Auckland and Napier are my primary memories from that trip, not the hotel rooms.

    For me the miles and points hobby is a way to find discount hotel rates in places I travel. Some cities I stay in resorts and 5-star hotels and some cities I stay in budget hotels. Depends on what I want to spend for the circumstances of my trip.

    The main thing about the San Francisco Rodeway hotel is it is a good location in downtown San Francisco for a tourist within easy walking distance of Union Square, SOMA, ChinaTown.
