... after being so hot and sweaty walking up the splash from the fall felt lovely. After, a great day exploring the national park the drive out was also pretty good, we got some awesome views looking down into the valley. Yosemite was such a good day and we wished we had a few days there to be able to explore more. On our way to San Francisco we pulled over for dinner in a burger place called, In and Out we all wanted to try one as they are meant to be very ...
... The boat left from pier 31 and took us through the mist, to the spooky prison island. It was shut down many years ago and it is now a major tourist attraction, but the signs that there was once an intense prison life going on are still there. The four of us did a tour around the buildings in which we were told about the prison cells and the isolation cells, the strict procedures of the prison and the few yet dangerous attempts to escape. 36 inmates have tried to escape of ...
... dragged everyone out, in the San Fran wind down to checkout the famous bridge. It was well worth it. We had seen it from down at the jetties and from in town but it was so amazing to see it up close, to walk on it, to touch it! It was one of those things that we thought would just be another tourist attraction and what we had seen would be enough, but it wasn't. It was better than in the pictures or the movies that we've seen it in. What a great way to ...
... a giant bag of popcorn from a guy selling it up & down the stairs. The young guy sitting in front of us reminded me of my brother Phil & stood up yelling a lot. The man that sat next to Sam was amazed whenever I returned from the bathroom with a fresh beer for Sam, as his wife apparently wasn't as well trained. The game ended up going into a tenth inning & after four entertaining hours the Giants unfortunately lost. But we are Giants fans for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Gate Hotel San Francisco
We needed an inenxpensive place to stay at the last minute, and the Golden Gate Hotel was a lifesaver! We had one of their small rooms with a shared bath, and found it very comfortable, and were pleasantly surprised when it had a sink and shower. And I loved that the doors of the unoccupied rooms were left open so I could see the other beautiful rooms in the hotel. I would love to go back and stay in one of the front or back rooms with the bay windows and clawfoot tubs.
My husband and I (late 40's) were going to spend 4 days in San Fran the last week of September and I had a heck of a time trying to figure out where to stay since it's such an expensive place for us Canadians. The reviews on Trip Advisor helped me and we were so happy with our decision to stay at the Golden Gate Hotel, I'm recommending it to anyone that doesn't want to pay the high prices for fancy hotels, that may have employees on strike and not only making a lot of noise outside the hotel from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM, but making you feel bad for staying there.
The Golden Gate Hotel is such a find! Real value, excellent location, and a staff that can't be beat!!
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
My husband, sister-in-law and I stayed at the Golden Gate the 18th, 19th and 20th of July, 2004. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The owners were extremely helpful and informative introducing us to the city. The staff were exceptionally warm, friendly and very helpful. UNFORTUNATELY I was robbed in San Francisco. The staff at the Golden Gate, however, did everything they could to help me take care of the problems I encountered, (including screening phone calls from my 84 year old mother, discreetly, so that she would not worry.) I couldn't ask for more. Ann Gertz
I recently stayed at this lovely little Hotel for a week in June. The location is great, just a block from the cable car and about another to Chinatown. The neighborhood is decent and there is a laundry right next door and some small marts and restaurants if you get hungry also there is a 24hr Wallgreens a block south just in case you forget something. The breakfasts were fabulous,consisting of Coffee, Tea, Fresh Orange Juice, and warm croissants. Afternoon tea was nice after a day of touring around. The owners and staff are lovely people who are very helpful with any request.
We loved the Golden Gate Hotel
We stayed at the Golden Gate Hotel in January 04. It was a really cute Hotel with a bird cage lift Laura Ashley decore and antique furniture. We had the family room which was 2 rooms and bathroom joined by a small corridor like a suite.They even gave us an extra room so we had more space which was really nice of them.My daughter loved the cat Captain Nemo And the golden retreiver dog called Humphrey. It was about a minutes walk from the cable car and a 5 minute walk from China Town. The staff and owners were really lovely and friendly and there was afternoon tea supplied in the lounge which was nice. We had a lovely stay at the Golden Gate Hotel and will certainly stay there again next time we are in San Francisco.
Excellent location, very nice rooms all cosy and snug with reclaimed bathroom furniture and the comfy beds. the hosts are a very lovely couple who will happily advise you on where to explore. nemo the cat and henry the dog stroll around welcoming guests, we loved our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone
We visited San Fran this past October and stayed at this gem of a place for two nites. Loved the location and found the staff to be very helpful. Would stay there again for sure.
Very cute, excellent location and super friendly, knowledgeable staff.
The Golden Gate Hotel was a charming place to stay. I was there in May 2003 and enjoyed the hotel so much that I am happy to recommend it to others. Hamil (the Manager) and John (the owner) couldn't have been more helpful with my queries about where to shop and how to get there, what to see and what to be wary of. My delightful room was clean, prettily decorated and quiet, overlooking the street. Coffee and tea were always available in the lounge / breakfast room no matter when I got in from sightseeing. Around the corner from the hotel is Powell Street, full of great shops to window shop. Half Tix, where one can buy cheap tickets to a variety of shows and of course the cable cars.
