Travelodge by the Bay
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Spent 3 nights here. Older style motel property, helpful front desk, spacious rooms if a little dated and small bathrooms, nice and clean, comfortable beds, on 2nd floor high vaulted ceilings, parking first come first served can be busy. Located near bus route on Van Ness and Lombard. 10 mins walk to excellent eateries in Cow Hollow area, walking distance to Embarcadero area. Free wifi, breakfast included, basic continental style and breakfast room definitely too small nowhere to sit unless you get there very early! Otherwise a well priced, clean comfortable place to stay.

Stayed: October 2012, traveled as a couple

We appreciate the compliments, thank you! I wanted to mention that our parking is guaranteed. For future travelers: If you can't find a spot, talk to the front desk and we will be happy to find one for you. Our continental breakfast is from 6:30 - 9:30. I have noticed that most of the people end up coming in the last 30 minutes. Although we have seating for over 20 people, it can get a bit crowded at time. I would recommend comer earlier to avoid the heavy traffic.

Travelodge by the bay is a nicely located hotel near the Fishermen's Wharf area, and just a short walk to the 'Crookest Street'.

If you plan to use the public transport to get to sights, plan beforehand as the buses are the only amenities near the hotel, so use of public transport needs to be planned.

The staff are very helpful and friendly and are a great source for tours and other attractions.

The complementary breakfast is adequate and very popular with the guests so the dinning room can get crowded.

We arrived late at night after a very long flight and were given a terrible room, no 314 , no place for anything. After complaining they changed our room but only the next day. The breakfast is minimal and the location isn't close to anything in particular . I suppose for the price , and given it is San Francisco we got a fair deal, but still hard to recommend.

Room Tip: Avoid room no 314 !
