We worked out our way to the BART then to SFO and found our way onto the shuttle to Monterey. Shame how you just start to work out our way around a new city then you leave. And on the way we saw a Google car filming street view, how cool is that! We went past Silicon Valley on the way, famous names on large buildings! Jeff met us at Marina, down ...
We were back on the big coach today for our city tour of San Francisco. As a sign of faith that today will turn out warm and sunny, Fred has dressed in a Tshirt and shorts. Brave or foolish? Sunday appears to be the best day for the big coaches to move about the city, traffic is light which allows the drivers to slow down and give us a good look at the famous landmarks. At this point I really should mention that half of the Chinese passengers go to sleep ...
... so crowded! But very cool to see the chocolate being made and we even got free samples. Then we headed up the steep streets of the city to the trolley museum. The iconic San Fran trolley had a surprisingly tough time staying in existence, but luckily for everyone a few lines are still running. We hopped on a trolley next and rode around the city a little bit. It was really fun and cool to go up and down the steep hills on a trolley that literally just clamped onto a ...
... the lunch sized bottles of coke being about 700ml or so. They also had a Red Bull can about the same size, who needs that much energy drink in one sitting?
I picked up a Bagel and some crisps and an 'orange and cream' soda. I asked the lady at the counter for a bottle opener as it was in a glass bottle. She simply twisted the top off for me, I didn’t even check to see if it was a twist cap, whoops. I had lunch outside then walked around ...
... and drifted apart. Many canyons form as rivers cascade among mountain peaks, but the Grand Canyon sits on a plateau and the desert landscape exposes all to view because it is not hidden under vegetation. By five or six million years ago the Colorado River flowed across the Colorado plateau on it's way from the Rocky Mountains to the Gulf of California. Every rainfall washes sparsely vegetated soils into the river, and over the years as the river cut down the sides ...

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.
