... able to add a day here or there as we've had to change our plans a bit, and are glad that we didn't have to eat any ticket costs where we've been because of changes like that...)
I fell in LOVE with Boudin Bakery (http://www.boudinbakery.com/ ) - being a foodie, I wanted to try their sourdough bread (which unfortunately, they didn't switch out the whole-grain standard on this sandwich, but I digress... ;) I ordered a grilled ...
... we wondered through Fisherman's Wharf, ate seafood, toured the city, ate seafood, walked through China Town, ate seafood, rode the cable cars, ate seafood, urban hiked, ate seafood, visited Alcatraz, ate seafood, climbed up Lombard the most crooked street, ate seafood, shopped for souvenirs, ate seafood, watched the sunset and ate seafood. Some of the highlights included: world famous clam chowder in an amazing ...
... so that's not too bad of an effort after so long in transit. I also kept thinking there were mini earthquakes or the buildings were shaking or something because I was so used to being on the slightly bumpy plane that it constantly felt like the ground was moving, very weird and I can't remember having that before from a flight, but maybe I've just forgotten.
The next morning we headed back to the BART and out to Oakland airport for our Vegas flight.. more on Vegas next time...

První okamžiky, co Michal s Evou odletěli, nás popadl jakýsi pocit osamění. Zase jsme byli jen my dva. Pořádně jsme nevěděli, co hodláme vlastně v USA dál dělat, Nějaké plány jsme měli, ale nic konkrétního jsme prozatím nevymysleli. Bylo stále letní teplo, krásné počasí, chtělo se nám ještě moc a moc někde kde cestovat, lézt po horách, a o něco míň ...

While meticulously designed to provide ample places to find a zen-like state of calm, it unfortunately failed completely to do that, just because of the sheer volume of camera happy nutters clogging the meandering pathways and stepping stone bridges. I was desperate to capture the relaxing atmosphere, and determined to out wait the crowds to get some people free shots. Other dawdling people combined with my well documented lack of patience meant I wasn't ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cow Hollow Motor Inn and Suites San Francisco
Awesome in every respect!
The Cow Hollow was excellent in every respect, nice room, very quiet, good location, clean, excellent value, good restaurants in the area, free parking, personable staff and easy access to the bus. The only slight issue we encountered was that when the hotel is full, the parking spaces can fill up. We arrived very late one night and all of the spots were filled, however the desk clerk allowed us to park in front of the lobby as long as we left our car key. Certainly not a big problem when you consider that most hotels in SF charge $15+ per day for parking.
You can't beat the neighborhood
The Cow Hollow Motor Inn is a gem. Not only is it clean and modern, but its just steps away from one of the best neighborhoods in terms of dining, entertainment and safety (I used to live in Cow Hollow, so I can vouch for it). I prefer this place so much more than staying around Union Square with other tourists (and steps away from the hookers and drug addicts of the Tenderloin) as well as national retail chains that can be found in malls across the country. Pick this place for the neighborhood its located in as much as for the accommodations themselves.
Loved Cow Hollow Motor Inn
The location was excellent. The facilities very clean, and staff very friendly. And close to an excellent resturant, Izzy's. I will defin.
stay there again and recommend it to friends and family!
Excellent Value - Great Location!
Stayed here during the first week of October 2003 and really enjoyed it. It is close to the Marina District and Golden Gate Bridge. The hotel was recently remodeled. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated and some of the higher floor rooms in the rear of the hotel have a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The covered parking was a huge plus. I parked the car and used public transportation because there is alot of traffic in San Francisco. The bus stop is around the corner and there is a good choice of restaurnats within walking distance. It is a very safe area also. I would stay here again if I return to SF.
Retraced steps of 20 years past in San Francisco at the Cow Hollow Inn. The hotel was indeed as I remembered it, a quality hotel at a very reasonable price. It is very centrally located to shops on Union Street and to Fishermans Wharf. The restaraunts in the area are varied, and food in all was excellent. The lone complaint was the indifferent attitude that approached rudeness by desk clerk at the Cow Hollow. Any questions were met by blank stares and curt replies. With tourism waning throughout North America, it seemed to me they're attitudes required adjustment.
My husband and I along with our 2 teenage children stayed at the Cow Hollow Motor Inn for 2 nights in July 2003 upon the recommendation of this web site and we were very pleased! No pool, but we didn't miss it. No fee for parking which is unheard of in San Fran. The location was perfect. We were able to catch a bus to the warf with ease. We could drive across the bridge as not very far. There was also a Mel's diner across the street for dinner or ice cream. A very nice area. We had a room that was not off of Lombard, which seemed to be a busy street. The rooms were very nice. If I ever had the opportunity to return I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends. The rates seemed rerasonable as well.
Cow Hollow Motor Inn
The Cow Hollow Motor Inn located at 2190 Lombard was a great centrally located place to stay. The room was clean and a good size. I asked for a room in the back and it was very quiet. If you like to walk, it was quite close to the Marina, Presidio, Palace of Fine Arts. It was also within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. If you would prefer transportation, the bus line was right around the corner. There is an excellent breakfast restaurant, Bay Watch. Very clean, reasonable prices, excellent service and very good food with good sized portions. All in all, a great place to stay.
The secret's out...
Having just seen the review on the Cow Hollow, I guess it will no
longer be a secret. I have been staying there for the past 10-15 years
and have never had a bad experience. The staff are very accommodating
to ones needs. Rooms lack a view, but are clean and nice sized and they
provide ample parking that is FREE. They are located in an area safe
enough to wander late at night. Excellent restaurants, movie theater,
and fun shops are all, literally, around the corner.
A gem on lombard
I have stayed here several times and have always found it comfortable , clean and convenient and well worth its remarkably low rates. Y&ou can fall out of your room into good french, italian and steakhouse restaurants. Chestnut St.,just around the corner has many convenient stores of all kinds.It's near the Golden Gate Bridge, and there are nearby buses to everywhere.
A Jewel of An Accomodation in SF
Cow Hollow Motor Inn is a JEWEL in San Francisco! Affordable, clean and a great location. We have walked to the marina area, Palace of Fine Arts, etc...The location is excellent for those wishing to use bus transportation. We have stayed there four times and have a fifth time coming up in May! Cannot wait.
