Stayed at the Travelodge for four nights during our three week trip of the west coast. Sadly as much as I loved San Francisco, this accomodation was probably the worst of all our rooms during the trip. Our room was on the first floor right at the front of the hotel, so we had to contend with traffic noise, pedestrians... More

The reason I didn't go down to 2 stars is the staff was good and the room was clean and fresh. Where it goes wrong is the specific room I had was weird. Room 211 has several issues. It's on like the backside of the hotel and was weird to get there. The experience continued to be weird as the... More

The location was great, breakfast inclusion was great, room was simple but what we needed and price was OK. However, front desk staff SO RUDE! Everyime i spoke with the front desk male manager, he grunted and huffed and puffed and every question was met with a sigh. SO RUDE.

I haven't stayed at the hotel, but I would based on the kindness of the chec-in clerk, Bruce. On Sunday, February 15th, I tried to stay here for a total of 5 days due to an emergency trip to San Francisco because my husband was having a brain biopsy at UCSF.. He could not accommodate us for that long of... More

Great location, friendly staff, great value, and overall a nice place to stay. The staff at the front desk, mainly Carlos, was very helpful with all of our questions. Parking was easy and convenient. Our only compliant was the shower head was VERY low. The wifi was also pretty slow but it was usable.

The staff was very friendly and the accommodations were more spacious than we were expecting for the price. It was very comfortable and the location is perfect, just a quick walk down the street to Ghiradelli square. The breakfast had muffins, cereal, juice, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and pretty good coffee. Would definitely stay here again. Great price and great... More

Located on Lombard, just a few blocks from the water, close to Fisherman's wharf, the zig zag street and the Big bus Hop on Hop off bus stop. Our room was very large with a surprise 2nd toilet. A little bit of road noise but not excessive. Breakfast was included, always a bonus, and had ample variety and good coffee!... 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.
