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.

Day 89 - Exploring SF! We fuelled up on a Dutch breakfast of cheese and biscuits (Yosemite leftovers!) before heading out to explore the city. It was a bit overcast but it promised to burn through later so we were feeling hopeful. We had decided to take on SF by foot, but instead of opting for a guided walking tour, we preferred to explore ourselves. We set the Nike running app to track us so that we could see how far we'd gone at the end of the day. We walked from Castro to ...
... we arrived but this tiny little restaurant called Les Joulins has made me love it even more. The singer played the sax and there was a drummer, bass player and a pianist. I bought the cd as my first little trip souvenir. "I was up there thinking to myself, if that girl could sing like Aretha Franklin, she'd be a billionaire". Direct quote from William Webster, the sax player, as he made me go as red as a lobster. I don't ...
... a mixture of luxury and madness. On one side there were huge velvet curtains with golden drapes, but next to that would be a random statue from poundland. It seemed that the booking master had not prepared for our stay and therefore the rooms were overbooked. This led to us being assigned the most luxurious room in the house, with a balcony overlooking the pool. Having travelled back through the very hands of time, the only thing we desired was rest and sleep. I longed ...
... up, in the previous few days.
From there we walked down to Fisherman's Wharf where the trawlers come in and had a lunch of the local and in season Dungeness Crab. Served simply with lemon juice it was fresh and sweet. Enjoyed it very much but still prefer a fresh king prawn over crab any day. We then wandered further along the waterfront towards Fort Mason and the historic Ghirardelli ...
Forgot to post in last nights blog my favourite story so far.... We get into the lift at about 7:30pm to go out for dinner and a very nice gentleman dressed in a black leather cap, some sort of black studded harness (no shirt), black knee high boots and black leather hot pants with a zip up the back (looking like he had just stepped out of the "Oyster Bar"), got in the lift with us. ...
