Answer from Trekincat

Nowhere, have you ever been to San Fran? Parking is at a premium, and driving ab RV around SF is insane. Just north of San Fran in Sausalito there are free park and ride areas, park the RV there and take a cab into the city.

OR for $45.00 for RVs you can go here

And trust me THAT is a GREAT price for parking in that area.

That's ridiculous. We're not "staying out" - we're going. With or without input (or approval. Sheesh!) we will find a days inn or a motel 6 with parking - stay a few nights and ride the trolleys. Again - have absolutely NO interest in an Rv park or near San Fran. That will be our hotel stop on our camping trip - a few days of civilization not living in the camper.

I guess we must be the only people on the planet who have thought of doing this (though i find that very very hard to believe !!)

We've done hotels en route to/from places, just the wrong coast.

Jim, you might consider looking a little south of town, Daily City or Burliggame. Getting away from the high rises would increase the opportunity for open parking lots. There is pretty good rail and transit service to get you into town so is you can find a place near a station, you would be good to go. Light rail goes clear to the airport now.

BTW, we towed a 17' TT across the GG and through town in 2009 with no problem.

Good luck. I doubt if you could find accommodations downtown to fit your needs, however there are several places around the outskirts that might work. You might try Point lobos inn at the end of Geary blvd. there is curb side parking that might work for you and it's far enough out from city center to be less hectic, and, there is public transportation right there to take you right downtown....plus, just down the street is the cliff house restaurant....
I hope that helps a little

I've been to San Francisco quite a lot, I love the place (to visit), but I can't think of any hotel in or anywhere near the city center that would meet your needs.

X2. Street parking is at such a premium for a COMPACT vehicle and don't know of any park lots except for by the ball field. When we were there last, it was a struggle to find parking near our hotel that wasn't $35 a day so we parked 3 blocks away on the street. Came back to find 1/4 panel caved in from someone else. Had the additional coverage though.

We offer this advice so that maybe your trip might not be ruined by a an ass.

I think the OP originally came on here asking for advice. As far as I can tell, that advice was given and several posters offered their advice based on experience. If the OP doesn't want to take it, then don't. It's just advice. Some people have to learn the hard way..........just saying. I'd love to hear about the results, "what could go wrong?"
