Arriving after booking direct with Travel lodge back in Nov 2013 for 4 nights taking full payment at the time we found we didn't have the rollaway bed we requested for the 5th person as none were available. The reception thought the 2 double beds would be big enough for 3 Adults and 2 teenagers ! They eventually gave us... More

We had a 2 bedroom accommodation next to the elevator. It was clean and spacious, although a bit noisy due to the traffic. Breakfast was chaotic and basic but still set us up for the day. There's cereal, boiled eggs, toast and yogurts. The location is great with a bus stop just across the street which will take u to... More

I did an advance booking through expedia only to arrive and be told the room I had pre booked would cost me an extra £40. If I did not want to pay that 3 of us could share a double bed. I had no choice but I would never book with them again and we weren't on our own. Also... More

This hotel/motel was clean, a bit dated, and dark. My first impression of the room was a little taken back by how dark and dated it was. Overall it was clean and I didn't have any major issues. Staff was friendly and helpful. If I were to go back to this area I might look for a slightly more expensive... More

Pleasantly surprised. We knew it was going to be an older hotel. We thought it was going to be a small room but when we opened the door the room was very large. It was large enough for 5 people. The place was expensive but at the last minute you can't complain especially where it's located. It was close to... More

We stayed for 5 days on our recent vacation to San Francisco. I had been in contact with the staff prior to our stay to request a quiet, out of the way room. It more than exceeded our expectations. We were given a room on the third floor that was very quiet (could not hear any other room/hallway noise). Our... More

Good location. We enjoyed our stay. Good access to public transportation. Within walking distance to crooked street, Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman's Wharf. We stayed for four nights in a room with two queen beds. The room was big and comfortable. The room and the bathroom were both clean and housekeeping did a good job too. The staff was professional and... More

The refrigerator had stuff left over from previous occupants. The room had an weird smell. I don't think it was a good value for the price. I would look some place else to stay. We have stay at better hotels in the area. The hotel looked a bit run down. There was a security deposit they slipped in that they... More

Good points : room was big and comfortable Bad points : noise, we heard the street, the people in the room above us, noice in the technical facilities behind the room, breakfeast room was ok but very limited choice. You have to pay for the parking but the amount is acceptable (17$) compared to other places in SF.

Good location, room was clean & tidy, lot of road noise, staff were friendly & courteous, breakfast room could be bigger for the amount of guests. Not happy having to pay for parking when we stayed for 4 days, we think it should be included in costs. Laundry facilities were very good.Overall we enjoy our stay, we were able to... More
