... until I hit Market St. Then, I rushed to the Cal Train station. I dashed for a few moments because I thought I would miss the train. Turned out that train was leaving later.
When I was riding the train, I received a call from my dad. He was checking up on me and he was surprised to hear that I saw San Francisco by myself. Despite living in Beijing for a year, my dad still worries about me being by myself. I am glad that my dad cares about me ...
... half expect to see the eyes of a crazy hobo starring back at me climbing the ladder to what would be the start of the uprising of those living

Living on fast food is seriously making me miss cooking I never thought I would say that. The constant moving from one place to another trying to see as much as possible means sourcing ingredients and cooking just isn’t something we have time for.
... was to die for. The bar soon closed up so we headed back towards our hotel. But not without stopping for a burger on the way home. Inside the carls jr we were eating at was a homeless man begging for money who became quite annoying towards us, but what we couldn't understand was there were security guards there but they didn't step in until the cashier called them over. At least in the end he left us alone. Once we had eaten it was home time and off to bed ready for our free day ...

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!!!!
