... to route 154, figuring that would at least get us to a town. It was a lovely scenic journey that eventually found us in Santa Barbara and re-joining Highway 101.
Pismo beach is a small coastal town, probably similar in size to Kalbarri. As we didn't arrive until about 5.30pm, we checked into our motel, dumped our gear and went for a look around.
Back home after a meal in town, we crashed for the night at about 10.00pm.
Gertrude stayed in the car....
... early as Ed had never been before. And we were running out of food (no supermarkets on the Big Sur). And to be honest we needed a break from camping. The next day was all blue skies and brilliant sunshine again, so we were able to appreciate the beauty of the Big Sur experience. Still a bit of a scary drive but wow!! And wow again! Today the road was littered with little red sports cars zooming round with their tops down and we remembered we hadn't somehow driven to ...
... eat. As a result everyone (other than us) had
massive carry on bags, which they try and stuff in the overhead lockers. We had
resigned ourselves to going hungry on the flight and just had a few snacks to
keep us going but were amazed to find they did a great American sized chicken teriyaki
for only $6 each. Our scheduled flight
time was 5.16 hours with an arrival time of

Fisherman’s Wharf is where the fishing fleet still ties up.
A late lunch at the famous Boudin and of course a sour dough and clam chowder.
A bit run down but that was how it felt to me ...
... sun. Feeling quite tipsy we headed to a nearby campsite for a dinner of wine and cheese. Great day! San Fran put on the weather for us as well and we enjoyed the bridge, bay and busting our butts our the hills. Actually we found a fondness for the cable car - so much fun! A sunset cruise, people watching at fisherman's wharf, cheap massages in china town and visit to Alcatraz made this whirlwind visit a great ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn San Francisco Airport North South San Francisco
Park, Sleep, and Fly From There
Our favorite jump-off point when travelling out of San Francisco.
Shuttle service is excellent, rooms recently renovated and clean. But more importantly, has been consistently so for the last several years we've been patrons. Look for their coupons on the net for park sleep and fly packages.
Good value for your money!
We only stayed one night but overall, very impressed with the service. They only had a smoking room left by the time we checked in but the staff tried their best to make us comfortable, gave us an air freshener to spray in the room and told us we won't be charged for a movie if we choose to watch. They were extremely sorry for not being able to give us a non smoking. They had very clean room and a delicious free breakfast.
Smelled like dog pee...
We didn't know they took pets until we got there and saw some in the lobby. The room smelled like dog pee.. bad! I have three dogs at home, so I am NOT a dog hater at all. But I wouldn't stay there again.
Also, it's far from anything to do, so plan on having wheels. If you stay... the only good thing was it was cheap. Thats the ONLY good thing.
$39 was grear value
we (age 43, 15, 7) stayed here in aug 04. it was a nice clean hotel with a small pool (very chilly) and a breakfast that was hot or cold you had to wait for some things (staff brings them from another location) or eat cereal. but like i said for $39 who's complaining. we got free transfer every day to the airport BART station where we took the train to the main area embarcadro then the cable car or trolley or the bus. no need to pay high prices for hotel in town. i would recommend this if all you want is a bath shower bed and tv. nice staff and friendly shuttle bus drivers.
stayed at this facility because of the reviews. Overrated! Air conditioner was loud and no one knew how to adjust it. Breakfast was average, but lines were long and time was short. Noisy--freeway, Train tracks and a trucking company right next door. Phone worked off and on.Somehow one article of clothing just vanished.
Lots of alternatives in the area--check them out first
Great Hotel, terrible bed
This was clean hotel, with a very friendly staff. The continental breakfast was the best I have ever had. However, the beds in the north building were the hardest bed I have ever slept on.
I have travelled quite a bit over the last 30 years, and have never slept on such a hard surface, that wasn't made of wood or cement.
Our visit to San Francisco was awesome!! The city is clean. We found the La Quinta Inn near the International Airport reasonable and accesible by rental car to all interesting sights. We enjoyed many tours and sight seeing at the various piers.
Great to visit!!!
Clean, good rooms at a great price
We stayed one night before flying out. The room was well equipped, nicely decorated and clean. Staff were very courteous, including the shuttle bus drivers (free, every 30 minutes). Breakfast was good - wide choice and plenty of seating.
Overall this hotel is great value and very convenient. I would even consider staying here for several days while visiting the city, as our experience with downtown hotels was very disappointing.
Great breakfast, clean and nice room
A+ for the breakfast, clean room, and helpful staff.
Wonderful and helpful staff. Value-for-money accomodation.
