Vi startede med at stå op og få morgenmad. Så gik vi ned til vandet ud til søløverne. Der var et eneste bestemt sted de alle sammen vil ligge. Det så ret sjovt ud. Vi gik videre hen der hvor vi var den første dag i San Francisco på Pier 39. Der var de der mange butikker. Vi gik op på første sal. Der var en masse barer og glas butikker. Vi gik ind i …
Vi startede med at tage bussen til Hipie kvarteret. Der var en masse mærkelige mænd og kvinder. De havde ikke så meget tøj på. Og de havde meget farver og mystiske ting. Vi var inde i en butik hvor mor godt kunne lide tøjet og hun købte en kjole. Vi gik ind i et supermarked hvor vi købte frokost. Og det var fransbrød med pølse og hvidløgs smør og …
Vi startede med at tage en bus til China town. Kineserne køber altid frisk mad så de ikke køber ind til nogle dage så der var rigtig mange kinesere der købte mad ind i butikkerne. Der var en masse fisk og tørrede dyr og friske grøntsager. Også en masse vi slet ikke vidste hvad var. Alt sammen stod på kinesisk. I de andre slags butikker med ting …
Vi stod op og fik morgenmad på motellet. Så gik vi til vores værelse og pakkede. I dag skulle vi til Japan town som ligger her i San Francisco. Det har jeg aldrig prøvet at være i Japan town. Kun et par gange i china town. Først tog vi bussen til der hvor deres rådhus er. Det er en stor kæmpe bygning som er lavet som en berømt kirke i Rom. Så gik …
Mor og far vækkede os tidligt op. Vi skulle pakke bilen sammen. Vi skulle gøre rent og pakke alle tingene i kufferterne. Så kørte vi til et sted hvor vi skulle aflevere autocamperen. De skulle tjekke alle tingene og imens ventede vi på vores taxa. Jeg blev ked af at vi skulle aflevere bilen. Den havde været meget god. Taxaen kom og kørte os til …

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge by the Bay San Francisco
Godd value basic accomodation. Recommended.
Thsi place was fine. It doesn't pretend to be anything other than a room to stay. The room was basic but spotlessly clean. Very cheap and a great location. If you want to stay in your room all day then go elsewhere but as a place to base yourself to visit the city then it's great. Very helpful staff, the lady on the desk (Lorette I think) when I checked in, is a fine example of multi tasking in action.
Cozy, friendly, and most importantly . . . sufficient!
Compared to similar priced hotels in NYC, this place was pretty nice. The room was spacious enough for our luggage, and we had a nice closet.
The guys at the front desk are voluntarily helpful and informative.
While it is about 15 minutes away from Ghirardelli Square, I'd be inclined to stay there again because it was pretty quiet around there.
If you just need somewhere safe and comfortable to stay, then I recommend this place.
If you're an upper-class yuppie, then I'd go elsewhere.
I myself stayed there from the 5th march to the 12th march and i was very pleased with my stay. The rooms had plenty of space, the bathroom was clean and tidy, i had a queen sized bed wich was very comfortable.
It is a ideal place if you only really need a place to sleep for the night, knowing you will be out most days sightseeing etc.. and it is only a 10 min walk to the fishermans warf.
This travelodge does not have its own resturant, but there is a nice bar & grill right next door which sells good food, It's called Chasers. I usually got take out and went to eat in my room, it was comfortable. I'm back in may for 4 days before i fly home and i'm very happy i'm staying there.
Decent location, large rooms.
First of all, This is not the Ritz or the Nikko. It is 79.00 a night travelodge in a city known for pricey hotels. That being said.. it is actually very good value. The hotel was clean and well kept. The rooms were very large for a travelodge ( about 350 square feet).. and my room ( Im not sure if all rooms had these) had a small sundeck about 30 square feet. Bathroom was plain and low quailty, but hey what can you expect? The hotel did not have a restaurant or room service, but had several in the nearby area. The location was actually very nice, being only a 5 to 10 min walk from the outside edge of fishermans wharf. Sure, you can do alot for better hotels in san fran...but probably not for less then a 100.00 a night...
Very happy, and returned for a second visit
We were pretty happy here the first time, so we returned a second time. It's not fancy, and I wouldn't recommend it to people with classy hotel tastes. But if you want somewhere to stay and keep your holiday money for other things, then my boyfriend and I found this just fine. A very reasonable rate and a terrific location - near Lombard and Van Ness most places are an easy bus ride away. I would find Fisherman's Wharf too noisy and Union Square with its chain stores could be any city, but we could go there, to the central library, to North Beach, the Haight and the Mission District really easily. We even revisited the crookedest street very late at night. A helpful manager sorted a few minor snags and chased up a shuttle to take us to the airport.
What a dump
This place was a dump. The rooms smelled of mildew, the windows in the bathroom would not close, the door lock to the adjoining room did not work. I was extremely dissatisfied. I would recommend this place my dog.
Made a mistake by staying here. Checked out next day to find something better. Bathroom window was wide open without a screen and could not be closed. This place is unsafe and rooms are in very poor condition.
Nice Location, not by the bay though!
Nice location for this small motel. Its not by the bay though, so dont expect to see the bridge or anything. Rooms are very small but adequate for the budget traveller. Towels are a bit on the worn side though.
Very close to some fine eateries on union street and just down from the crookiediest street in the world.
stayed 5 nights at an average of $60 a night.nice location,walk or a short bus ride to the wharf.lot of little bars and breakfast places on lombard,completely safe area.originally was going to stay near the convention center, this was a much better choice.if you get familiar with the#30 bus you can get anywhere quickly.try oreilly's pub on green st and the free tours sponsered by sf library.place was clean with a good manager,very accomodating.
Nothing fancy but the location, price & staff make it a good deal!
My wife & I stayed here with a group last month (Sept/03) and we were under no illusions. This is a motor hotel, the rooms are clean but basic & could use a little sprucing up. (That's the negative) Then again, how much time do folks visiting SF actually spend in their rooms?) The positives include the staff, who are very helpful & courteous. The price is very reasonable. And finally the location, it is fairly safe to walk around and it well served by buses. There are some really neat restaurants in the neighborhood & the crooked part of Lombard street just up the hill within walking distance. I would recommend this place for travellers & tourists alike.
