“Travelodge (formerly Bayside Inn) on Columbus”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Good location. Wasn't noisy. Staff very friendly and helpful. rooms are small but they were clean and functional. Could do with better lighting.

San Francisco is an overpriced city -- we found this Travelodge just fine given how expensive SF is.

Although rebranded to Travelodge, they have a ways to go to meet minimal Travelodge standards. They are, however, trying. We recently stayed for 4 nights at a good rate($79p.night). As stated by others, the location is fantastic. The rooms are spartan but clean and everything worked. Parking is cheaper than any other hotel in the area. Staff are polite and helpful. Coming improvements are obvious but there is only so much that you can do with the property. That being said, I would stay here again as the money you save can be put to better use in SF.

Like most hotels at Fisherman's Warf...great location. But the hotel itself is pretty much need renovating. Just a place to sleep and put your stuff down while seeing the city. We stayed from July 10 to 13 and the rates were 150dollars per night plus 14dollars per night for parking. But this was the cheapest hotel in the area within reason.

It's all about the location! You are at walking distance from the Pier 39, Hard Rock Cafe and from all the cruises to the Bay and Alcatraz. But for 120 USD you should get better than this, at least that's what I paid. It was my first day in the US so I didn't had any idea about the price I should pay for. Now I know and I will not go back for more than 50 USD! If they ask you more than that just find some other place. Really! Filthy room.

Stayed here for one night whilst on a road trip. the hotel is in a great location 5 min walk from fishermans wharf. the hotel its self was in the process of chamging to a travelodge. the room that i stayed in was dated although the bathroom had been refurbed to a good standard. the room its self was poor. no air con cloth rail over the bed felt like i was sleeping in a cupboard.curtains did not fully fit the window and no wifi even though it was supposed to be free.
the room was very clean and the staff were lovely. the manager did say that the hotel was in the process of changing to a travelodge. i think that if they up grade the rooms this will be a gem of a hotel to stay in. i would stay there again

We stayed here for two nights and although quite dated and basic, the room was very clean, linen and towels spotless and the proprietor, Ish, was very friendly and could not do enough for us. Parking is also much cheaper than the bigger hotels. Ish even let us leave our car there for an extra day after we checked out to go to Alcatraz. We were away all day and he didn't charge us. This hotel is in a great location and only a 5-10 minute walk to Pier 39, Hard Rock Cafe etc. The hotel is currently being taken over by Travelodge and there will be a complete revamp and update. Would have no hesitation about staying here again. Thanks to Ish's hospitality for making our stay in San Francisco a very enjoyable one.

This hell hole was cheap compared to most hotels in San Francisco, but I'd suggest spending a few more dollars per night, than stay in this flea-pit. The decor was drab. The rooms were tiny and dingy, and the whole place just stunk to high heaven. The ice-machine didn't work... the vending- machine didn't work.... the phone didn't work... Our A/C didn't work, so we had a broken fan which barely cleared the air. We went to the manager to ask for one that actually worked, and his response was, "But the weather is supposed to get cooler tonight." THAT statement says it all about this place. Don't go there.
