Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Golden Gate San Francisco
Please don't let the outside fool you - the rooms are completely redone on the inside. All new furniture, fixtures, tv, frig etc. There is free DSL and the important part is that it WORKS (and at a good rate)! The previous 3 hotels we stayed at claimed to have free hi-speed internet but for various reasons of their own fault - none of them worked! I was so worried after having a horrible experience the previous night at a Travelodge in Reno. Once I opened the door there was a HUGE sigh of relief! I redeemed TripRewards points for this room so it was free - again I thought we might be pushed into a sub-par room because of that but we weren't. They are still renovating - but it appears to be in more of a remodel phase than construction - we never heard any noise from them working. The managers and staff were very friendly - I'd definitely stay here again.
Excellent value lodging
The Travelodge offers an excellent value for staying in SF. The two best things about the Travelodge are its location (excellent) and price (very low compared to other area hotels). Although rooms in the Travelodge's three-story building have doors that open to the outside and it is an older structure, I felt very safe and the bathroom had been recently remodeled. The rooms are older but generally clean (although the sheets are apparently not changed each day you stay unless you request it). I found the general manager, Rocky, to be helpful and polite. I originally checked in for just one night because I wanted to see how it would be, but then I stayed there for a second night because it was fine. It's not the Fairmont, but I would stay there again if I were on a budget for my vacation.
I was only going to stay for a few days but now I'm staying here for a month. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and the high speed internet is great. The staff are very friendly and helpfull. I had no idea how to get around S.F. and they have made it very easy for me. The bus line is close and around the corner are great restaurants and bars. The beautiful marina is only a short jog away. I'm so glad this is the area I'm staying in a new city. There's also free parking!! Enjoy your stay.
Central location a plus
First time in San Fran from Saskatoon Canada. Pleasant surprise because the hotel is newly renovated and we are here in the off season so the rate was very reasonable. Plus was DSL internet. Room was very clean and owner was very pleasant. Gave us the coupon rate from the traveler discount guide no problems. Close to all the sights and very central.
Can't find better for the price in San Fran
After staying in San Francisco several times prior to this trip, I was expecting to fear for my safety paying only $70/night. I was wrong. The rooms are clean (although the decour is a little strange), they provide high speed internet, the staff is courteous, and the location is good and safe. My biggest complaint (and the only thing stopping me from giving it a higher rating) is the lack of a continental breakfast.
A pleasant surprise!
A very enjoyable stay. Clean newly renovated rooms, free broadband Internet connection, warm hospitality, and a short walk to many fine restaurants. I new I was in good hands the moment I checked in. Rocky, the manager, and his wife Rose were always eager to help in any way they could, be it dining suggestions or special needs. The renovated rooms were a very special treat; granite adorns the countertops and showers, clean carpets, new paint and fresh decor. Even though some room renovations were still in progress it was being done very unobtrusive, I never heard a thing.
We love San Francisco, we'll be back
I am a stickler on cleanliness, and this hotel was very clean! We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was quite comfortable and has most you need . We have a baby with us and the personel put a crib in our room. This was great ! The people at the front desk help us with what to look around as sigthseeings, beach places and so.
This travelodge is ideally located - we walked to Ghirardelli Square and the cable cars in about 15 minutes, or used the buses which run along Chestnut Street, one street over from Lombard. The local neighbourhood on Chestnut has plenty of restaurants and shops, and we enjoyed just walking along there in the evenings.
And yes this hotel was just recently renovated and they have high speed DSL internet and free parking was plus.We will be staying there again in April '05, and look forward to staying with these friendly and efficient folks again!
Great price with internet servie
room looked pretty home style, comfortable, convinient location to places of interests, and great to have high speed internet service, recommend this one to those who can't live without internet.
Worst Hotel ever!
This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had. The owner was completely rude to us and has now attempted to over-charge me for a room that left a lot to be desired anyway! His behavior is completely out of line and uncalled for. He thought that he could take advantage of me because I am a woman, and I am not going to allow that to happen--I am disputing his charges through my credit card. There are a lot of other hotels in the vacinity so please take me advice and STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!
I'm extrimly sorry that you had a worst experience at travelodge. but i don't recall anyone stayed at our hotel and had a problem like this. i'm sure there has been a mistake. becouse there are 8 travelodges in san francisco and 3 on same street- lombard street. if you are my guest please give us a call you should have a phone number on the hotel receipt and credit card receipt. and i promise to resolve this matter in right manner and offering you a free night stay at our hotel on your next visit to san francisco.
happy holidays and wish you a merry christmas.

... we came, and still do. Although after being in rural NZ for so long, you forget how many crazy people there are in cities like this - within minutes of getting out of the tube station, you can hear some "eccentric" family arguing loudly in the street, whilst a beggar is straight onto us for some spare change... God bless America! After a little recuperation time to get the blood circulating again, ...

America's money is confusing the its weird as they add tax to the price shown on the shelf and then you have to pay $5.98a and it doesnt get rounded up.
Am sitting in the hotel lobby now with their free wifi so i can upload this blog, tomorrow we are unsure on what we will be doing but i'm sure wee will work something out before the morning.

Moving through the Fisherman's Wharf area, it's more and more cafes and restaurants (mostly seafood - go figure)! Clam Chowder seemed to be the specialty for most of these places and usually served in a crusty bun, so you get to eat the bowl as well - so 70s...LOL!! More gift shops, more street performers and more t-shirts to poke a stick at! Still, it was a colourful area worth visiting.
... colour apparently and then made our way back on foot. The bridge is an amazing structure and the weather was kind enough to make it a pleasant walk. Unfortunately the smog was hiding much of the city and we were thankful that we had such a good day yesterday. We wound our way through the Presidio area which is now a parkland where old military buildings have been turned into residential housing and others used as museums and the like. A ...
