“Expected Little Got Less”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Rooms smell like smoke. No carpet? Could hear the folks upstairs walk, guess the people below us could hear us. Planned ahead and brought own towels.

However, didn't expect much which is why I brought our own towels. But for 200 a night you would think the place might at least look like the pictures which where nothing great. Guess they went to a lesser dive hotel for the photos.
Stayed here on a last minute lets go to the city for a romantic night thing.
Me an my gal had reservations at Espetus restaurant which was just across the street.

Worst part was they refused to take AAA because I booked on line. The website does not have an option for AAA. They were just lying so I let it go.
Figured I'd ask for a late checkout to make up for it but they told me that the corporation has a strict no late checkout policy. More lying? Didn't really matter after a night in the place we left early.

Spend another hundred and stay at one of the many beautiful hotels in the city.
Marriott at the wharf is only a hundred more.

Only plus was free parking. The high class places usually charge 20 for parking. At least they didn't lie about the free parking.

My friend and I drove 3 hours from Mendocino county to San Francisco to pick up a friend from the airport. Upon arrival to the bay área we were informed that his flight was delayed until 6 am the following morning. With only a limited amount of cash between the two of us and it being late at night and almost imposible for us to drive back, we would either have to find a reasonable hotel or spend a sleepless night waiting in our car. We found the Travelodge Central and inquired about price. They could not accept a credit card without it being physically present to swipe it to charge it, which was not an option. We had enough cash for the price of the room, but just barely. What we did not have was the required deposit for cash paying customers. At first the receptionist was very resistant to helping us out, using his city mentality to rationalize that "nice guys finish last" and that he could not do anything. Upon scraping together the change in our vehicle from the floorboards and behind the seat cushions, and asking him to please have compassion, he was able to lower the price of the room enough to allow the the money we had to cover the cost and the necessary deposit. His name is Delfin, and I applaud him for his kindness and his willingness to trust and go against his corporate mindset to help a fellow human being in need. If we had more people willing to do this in the world, we would live in a very different place. I hope his superiors recognize this and that I will recommend Travelodge to my friends and stay there in the future because of this one kind act and hope they reward him accordingly. Thank you Delfin!
