Met raam open best lekker geslapen, wel weer meeuwen en een keer sirenes maar verder best rustig.
Verhaaltje van gisteren geschreven en rustig aan aangekleed en gedaan. Daarna wilden we ontbijten bij Johny Rockets maar daar was geen plek. Dus maar door naar de Ihop waar Derk lekker crÍpes nam en ik had ook crÍpes met aardbeienyoghurt met fruit …

Best lekker geslapen maar wat maken die meeuwen een herrie als je vlak aan zee zit. Er zat ontbijt bij dit hotel, even gekeken en heel snel weer weg. Erg veel mensen en 3 tafeltjes werkt niet echt.
Aan de overkant zit een Denny's dus daar maar voor de laatste keer deze vakantie ontbeten.
Daarna de boel gepakt en naar Milpitas voor een …

... and we treated ourselves to a nice Italian meal, was good food but there was so much of it! I also managed to have a glass of White Zinfandel rose wine for the first time in 8 months which went down nicely :) ! After our meal we headed back to the hostel and to bed!

Up early today, had a bagel for breakfast then it was off to Alcatraz! We got the ferry over at 11am and took some snaps en route and once there we did the audio tour of the cell house ...

What Bridge?

... guide takes us to the Golden Gate Bridge not that you can see it. Although I have seen the bridge a few times I have never walked across it. The fog added a different dimension.

It is Labour Day weekend so everywhere is very busy. This includes our first campsite at Point Reyes National Seashore.

Day 14: Hello San Fran!

A travel blog entry by bugsy71


... good, has its own private terrace and is located in the heart of downtown SF, a block back from Union Square. The plan tonight is to just grab some take out and have a quiet night in. Nic has just booked herself a 'Wok Wiz' Chinatown tour and lunch for Monday, but other than that we haven't locked in any other activities as yet. Tomorrow I think we'll just head to the Sunday Markets / Marina precinct for a look around and see what San Fran has to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Wharf Inn San Francisco

    Good price, convenient, but a little noisy and too warm


    Stayed at the Wharf Inn June 3-4, 2004. Overall, a good value.

    Didn't like this place at all


    Stayed here for 2 nights last month and was totally unhappy. The only good thing about this hotel is the location. The air conditioner didn't work, in fact the room was heating up instead. When we complained about it, we were not even offered a new room, but advised to open the louvered windows with no screens (what about the bugs!). When we insisted on a new room, all the vacant rooms we checked had the same heating problems. We also asked to talk to the Manager the following morning but never got back to us. The room was also dated and the water pressure was really bad. We come to San Francisco mulitple times a year and we will not stay in here again, definitely worth it to spend a few more bucks and stay at the Radisson!

    The best value on the wharf


    The Wharf Inn was a great little place about one block from the waterfront. It has great access to all the wharf attractions and restaurants. The staff was overly nice and accomodating. It is the best value in the entire wharf area.

    Great Location!


    We have just returned from a 3 day stay at the Wharf Inn. The location was perfect! Right in the middle of everything you could possible want to do, see, eat or get to. The staff was really great. Helpful, friendly. The rooms were clean and roomy. We had rooms with small balconies that I especially enjoyed. From the balcony you could see the ocean. I found it charming that you could also hear an occasional chorus from the seals on Pier 39. I plan to use this hotel for our next trip to SF.

    Wonderful Location


    We spent 4 nights at The Wharf Inn in October 2003. What a great location to use as a base to explore San Francisco. The room was clean and the view of Coit Tower and the Bay was wonderful. Not the ritziest of places to stay but a wonderful bargain that included parking!

    A Great Little Inn


    After doing a bit of online research for a trip to SF, I narrowed my hotel choices down to Sheraton and Wharf Inn. When you include parking and discounts, their lowest rates are about even. Sheraton staff were just plain rude on the phone, so I called and booked room at Wharf Inn.

    Our 2 night stay was perfect! Our room had a small balcony over Mason Street, 1/2 block from the Waterfront area. The room was very clean and nicely decorated, actually nicer that we expected. Secure covered parking was free, staff were so courteous and helpful, and the location can't be beat . We plan to return to The Wharf Inn.

    Quiet at the Wharf


    The Wharf Inn was a very nice and most excellent location to enjoy the Wharf area of Frisco. It was nice to be able to access the room without having to go through mass lobbys and bag boys. Convienent coffee and paper in the lobby and close to Pier 39. Great Place and parking included.

    Great Place!


    We went on a "girls getaway" - 4 women sharing a room with 2 queen sized beds. It was the perfect base for San Francisco. 1/2 block from Fishermans Wharf and Pier 39, 1-1/2 blocks from the cable car. Mostly we rode the refurbished trolleys to get to Union Square, Nob Hill, and the Castro and transferred to the muni system for Haight Ashbury and Ocean Beach. The staff was very helpful, booking dinner reservations, giving tips on sight seeing, etc. Only the cleaning staff seemed a little grumpy. The price is better than any of the other Wharf area hotels, and you can request a balcony facing the water - though be warned, the garbage trucks arrive early. Missing were blow dryers and coffee makers, but there was always fresh coffee in the lobby.

    Enjoyed the Wharf's Inn


    This is a perfect location to stay if you want to be within walking distance of Pier 39. You are practically right on the wharf when staying here at the hotel plus they do not charge fees to have your car parked at the hotel like most of the other hotels do. The hotel is clean and staff is friendly.
