I am trying to list all the "other" options of a Google form. As such, I am using UNIQUE to list all results from a row so:

=UNIQUE('Form Responses'!S2:S)

I would the want to exclude the following from my unique query or prevent Unique form listing the following: No explanation/don’t know, to far, Too costly.

How can I do this?

You can filter out the unwanted results by using the FILTER function:

=UNIQUE(FILTER(A1:A; A1:A <> "No explanation/don't know"; A1:A <> "To far"; A1:A <> "Too costly"))

Check out this example spreadsheet.
