Travelodge Golden Gate San Francisco

... I was not confident enough to turn left across the traffic so we have almost no photos.
We took a detour at Monterrey to drive down Cannery Row just so I could see the place Steinbeck's novel was set. Predictably it has been gentrified with piers with shops and a huge marine aquarium complex.
North of Monterrey Highway 1 became more of a freeway and soon had 4 or 5 lanes of traffic zooming along ...
Unreal how big the Highway's are. Also you are in the middle of nowhere, then there is a massive shopping centre or housing estate, in a very small area, then nothing again. Don't know where it was, up near San Francisco, there was nothing around, but it started to get very windy. Up on the hill, there was hundreds of massive energy wind mills.
We finally made it to the hotel about 9 pm. ...
... sundae. Of course we walked it off with the aforementioned hike up the steepest hill in SF :-) Sotto Mare Restaurant - dined on local seafood here thanks to the recommendation of our host, Ruth. It didn't let us down with the most delicious Seafood Cioppino. Seriously to die for stuff. My very messy bib was testament to how much I enjoyed it. Coit Tower - a quick visit to see the fabulous views of the city, Golden Gate Bridge ( which has been shrouded in fog each time we've snuck a ...
... The one thing that stood out for me is the storey of being able to hear people celebrate news years eve in the harbour on fisherman's wharf while the prisoners were locked up. With the feeling of being cast out and alone at those times it is understandable why so many tried to escape. The fact a few of those that did make it outside the prison walls have never been found makes me hope one or two did survive as some of the sentences were overly strong for the crimes ...
... farm which I have never seen one this size. There were hundreds and hundreds of them spread over the mountain top spinning like crazy. When we got into San Francisco we immediately went to our lunch stop which was before we actually crossed the bay bridge into San Francisco, it was a little park with the most amazing views of the city. We could see the bay bridge, the city skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge and even Alcatraz. We sat down and ate taking in the beautiful scenery and ...

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!!
