1What is your idea of "inexpensive" in dollars or other currency? My "inexpensive" might be your "I can't afford it."
There really isn't a "tourist area" of San Francisco. The city is rather small and compact, and the places most visitors go to are scattered all over. Is there a particular place you would like to be close to?
Do you need parking for a car?
The plural of anecdote is not data.

2Yes, if you have a car to park you will be paying through the nose for that privilege.
If that is the case, stay in the Marina district around Lombard Street where there are a lot of motels with free parking. San Francisco has excellent public transportation, so you will never be far from the 'tourist areas', transportation wise. If you DO have a car, park it and leave it there while you are visiting. Driving the city's hills and one-way streets and trying to find parking is not my idea of FUN.

5Maybe check out the San Remo in North Beach- bathroom down the hall.
Really tough finding a room in The City in August for around $100. You should start checking Hotels.com or Priceline
for your travel dates and budget. There are a handful of them with, but you may have considerable street noise while
trying to sleep

6As said, it will be hard to find a hotel in San Francisco at your price, at least one you would want to sleep in. The America's Cup is this year and there are large conventions, which fill up hotels and drive up prices. The San Francisco Forum on Trip Advisor has a list of 'budget' hotels in the city which are recommended, meaning no fleabags.

7A couple final suggestions: You might try AirBnB where locals rent out rooms in their homes and can also give you
great tips for your visit. (AirBNB.com) I'm loathe to suggest a Days Inn for your visit- but there is one four blocks from
the BART station in Hayes Valley- not exactly the tourist area but one of the least pricey options in The City. DaysInn.com
