3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Staff very good and recommendations and assistance freely given. All of them were friendly and helpful.
The only advice I would not take is the offer of the airport shuttle service, we got a taxi there and the staff booked a shuttle to take us back to the airport. It was cheaper than the taxi but he was late and we weren't told he would be picking up other people so we were really cutting it fine getting to the airport which was very stressful! The driver couldn't have cared less and kept saying we would be fine. When we got to the airport finally, we ran from floor to floor to check in and then made it through customs with just a few minutes to catch our breath, not ideal.

During our stay the rooms were fine and bed comfy, but were really noisy with people slamming doors at all hours.

Location was good for eating out and when you work out the bus service great for getting all places. Lovely park at the back of the hotel for reading and relaxing.

We needed an inexpensive (by SFO standards at least) hotel that was in a safe area and close to USF. I was traveling with my older parents. With a Travelodge you never know what to expect, but this place was a pleasant surprise. Our first room didn't have a working A/C so they quickly moved us. The rooms are small, but they were clean and the beds were comfortable. Ours had a small fridge. There are cheerful flower boxes with geraniums out front and the grounds are also very clean. The location is great; the Presidio is less than a block away, the Palace of Fine Arts is about 3 blocks away and the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Street are also within easy walking distance as well as the waterfront by the Marina and Crissy Field. It's a great place to explore some of the other less popular parts of SFO with easy access to public transportation. The parking lot is small, but you're better off without a car in the city anyway. I've been a travel agent for many, many years and would easily recommend this hotel to others. My brother and his wife stayed in another much more expensive hotel and our room was just as nice so I was very happy we stayed where we did and didn't spend the extra $$. The only negative I would say is the continental breakfast is pretty sparse, but there is an awesome bakery (Chestnut Street Bakery) 3 blocks away which we walked to each morning. There is also a small business center where you can print boarding passes (for those who don't use your smartphone to check in). The staff is all great; very friendly and helpful with directions and other tips. If I ever came back to SFO I would gladly stay here again.
