Basic lodgings in the heart of the city. We had 3 adults and 2 children in a room with 2 queens and a separate room with a full size bed. There was a tv in the main room and a fridge and a table with 2 chairs. A decent breakfast was included with the room. Parking was quite reasonable for... More

The noise of other rooms particular from upstairs, made settling our kids difficult. Also we were given bad advice about getting a taxi to Oakland airport.

I was appalled to learn from my guests that the room I had reserved for them at the Travelodge by the Bay was dirty and unacceptable. I had reserved the room as I was hosting a party for my staff and clients at BoBo's Steak House next door that evening. The morning of the party, I personally went to the... More

My girl friend and I stayed here for a week last July. II have no complaints about the location or the room or the free breakfast. But if you use a wheelchair, which my friend does, you should be aware that Bobo's apparently has the permission of the Travelodge to have their valet parking service use the motel's parking lot....

My girlfriend and I booked this for a 14 night stay in San Francisco. We didn't expect too much but the price was good for the area and the location seemed good. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. The room was amazing. So clean, new carpets, the fridge we had requested, big comfy bed. Perfect! The staff were great... More

Location was perfect for us with easy access to Marina district and Fishermans wharf area. Stayed in huge room with 2 queen size beds. Staff was amazing and helpful when parking an oversized vehicle. Breakfast was okay but fairly limited (cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, muffins and toast). Couldn't stomach the coffee. Only major complaint: the towels were rough and... More

Very good location, close to the Marina. Large, clean rooms. Nice reception. The breakfast is not the best, but there is always enough food. Free wifi but connection is too slow.

Great location - close to Fisherman's Wharf, Marina district. Rooms were spacious, staff was excellent, breakfast in the morning was tasty. This is one of the few hotels were you actually get a Queen bed (not a double). If you are driving, there are 3 parking lots (either free or really cheap) and the hotel is right on a main... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
