Our recent stay at the Travelodge by the Bay was just okay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, however the layout of the hotel was not convenient. Apparently they acquired the building adjacent and did not connect it internally with the original. In order to go to the front office or to the breakfast buffet, one has go through an... More

The first room we checked into (308) was on the 'West wing' and on entering we were pleasantly surprised by size of the room, lots of daylight. Then we realised that the whole room (actually the entire floor) was vibrating and there was a thrumming drone that could be heard. Felt like we were on a ferry. Requested a room... More

I searched and searched and finally rested on this hotel. We were not disappointed! Great location! We walked and toured the warf! The hotel was super... More

We weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. The room (2 queens) was big and clean and comfortable. The location is near the Bay and Fisherman's Wharf, in an area with several other budget hotels. Free continental breakfast is a plus. The room cost was cheap by San Francisco standards.

I visited San Fran with wife and two young kids and stayed 2 nights only at this Travelodge. The beds were comfortable the rooms were quite however a little dated. I found San Fran to be an expensive place to stay and this hotel was no different, however you can't hold that against the hotel as they are just charging... More

The location for this hotel was perfect for what we wanted to do. It was walking distance to the pier and all the touristy stuff. The hop on/hop off tour that we wanted to do stopped just down the road. Lots of great restaurants and things to do within walking distance. The rooms were decent and clean, small older washrooms...

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.
