... My afternoon was time to explore Alcatraz , the street car was so full inactive stand up and couldn't see the stops so in true Ernie style I missed the stop and had to power walk to the right pier to catch the boat over to the island.
once on the island I watched a short movie about the history of the island, it was really interesting to learn that it wasn't just a jail but also an army barracks and was taken over by ...
... was totally uptight, man, and there just had to be a better way to live. That is the culture that was born in Haight Ashbury during the 60s. It plays out today in a slew of social programs and services, right down to having the option to buy a salad at McDonalds. Today, in Haight Ashbury, Deanne and I and a small group of left leaning citizens of the world were shown around the historic district by tour guide Stan Flouride. He rode up on a ...
... way on route 95 heading north. We were a bit undecided about whether to visit Death Valley national park or not and 95 would give us the option. It was incredibly hot that day and we knew that Death Valley would be at least a few degrees hotter which meant that any site seeing we’d do would be right from the car.
We crossed over the Californian border and drove nonstop to Death Valley national park on route 190 from the east and exit out from the west side. ...
... area I stayed in, plus the crazies, made me want to just go hang out in the airport, so that's how I ended up sitting at the airport for hours. The story of today doesn't end there though. I adore traveling to see the places of course, but another great thing is the lovely people you get to meet. I wanted to see the end of the World Cup matches, so I went to a small little pub for a drink and some food. As I sat there, I started randomly talking ...
Had a goodbye brekky with Ken & Brian this morning before they left for their optional extra tour to see the giant Redwood trees at Muir Woods National Monument. I'd love to have done that too but couldn't justify the extra cost of changing flights, etc. I leave 10.30 this morn for 1.15pm flight, getting into New York 10.07 tonight (3 hours ahead of San ...

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.
