"Travelodge By The Bay"
Location is surprisingly close to Fisherman's Wharf. To walk down to the wharf will take about 20 minutes. There are lot's of places to eat in the area around the hotel. They serve a light breakfast every morning upstairs in a small serving area. The staff is very helpful and friendly and came up with lots of alternatives for our stay as well as with […] transportation. The only problem we experienced was traffic noise. They are located on a busy street with trucks, buses, and daily commuter activities. Next time we'll ask for a room away from the street. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel near everything"
Exceptional value. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great bus and trolley maps.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and close to Ocean and downtown areas"
The front desk was very helpful, the only surprise was that I had to pay for parking, though I understand this is common in San Francisco, I wasn't expecting it when I checked in. There is a nice park, next to the ocean only three blocks away for pets, which we enjoyed greatly for our dog. And good restaurants nearby. I ate at the Roam Artist Burger, […] amazing hamburgers and fries, healthy too, for that type of food. It was noisy but I expect that is true in many SF hotels, as it is a loud city. Overall, for price and location, I would recommend it, not the top end, but then neither was price. Though I suspect you could find a nicer hotel, for not too much more, with dogs, where parking was included. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lots of hidden fees"
They grossly misrepresented their prices online. By the time we checked out our bill was 50% higher than quoted. Crazy price for what you get. I would never stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location for walking around"
Small parking garage, and bathroom door that won' open all the way, but that is the only bad tings I could say about this room.Genuine Expedia guest review
Just a place to rest your head while at fisherman's wharfGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was pretty clean, convenient location, and not a bad deal. Only complaint would be how thin the floors and ceilings are. I could hear the upstairs people walking around upstairs and they weren't even being loud. Other than that you get what you pay for. If all you want is a room to sleep and shower in and plan to be out and about as I was then […] this place is a good deal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Acceptable for the price"
Terrible wireless. Only two desk chairs to sit on--very uncomfortable. The room was small but not unreasonable for the price we paid. Close to Fisherman's Wharf (but it is uphill going to the hotel). Good nearby restaurant for breakfast (Cafe Gola). Great restaurants a few blocks away of Union Street.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, close to shops and resturants"
I would stay here again because of location, shopping and good eats! The staff was very helpful, but the rooms were on the noisy side.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Should be better for the price."
Way overpriced. Dingy, noisy room, really low shower head (ok for kids under 12). Can do much better in the area for similar price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Travelodge good while on a budget"
perfectly fine stay. the rugs in the hallways were dirty and old. the breakfast had only an apple for fresh fruit - during this summer season, it could have been easy to have a broader fruit selection.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Wi=fi didn't work, the faucet in the sink needed serious work, the tub drained very slowly. Comfortable bed, clean room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Found a mouse trap in the room."
Terrible experience. Since I got there I did not even want to take off my shoes. We were shown three different rooms to pick from and one was worst that the other. We picked one not in the courtyard. My 4 year old son found a morse trap by the bed. It was a horrible!!! No mouse on the trap but you could tell it was used. They advertise cable but only […] 8 channels available. Terrible terrible experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No frills Hotel, very small room with no view"
Very expensive for what you get. Furthermore I checked with the front desk to have our rental car parked in the hotel's garage since our flight out of SF was at 10:00pm and checkout was at 12:00. I was told by the lady at the desk that I would be charged an additional $15.00 plus tax for the extra parking. Later that night we returned to the hotel to […] get the car and head off to the airport (everything was going as planned). When we returned to NC my wife pointed out that we had been charged $48.90 for the additional parking.......ouch! Quick victory for them in the short run but hopfully not the long run. Not only will we never stay in that hotel again but hopefully others will avoid them as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Needs to be cleaner"
Staff was excellent but the quality of the hotel was not! For the price I expected something nicer! Out shoes were so much dirtier walking around the room rather than the streets! Walls were really thin I could hear everyone next to me. And above me! They didn't have many channels to choose from and when we did find something the satellite went out […] .

"I'd give you a 0 but it wasn't an option"
1. 5 star price for a 0 star hotel 2. Nickel and dimes us- charged extra for another person then separate cost for rollaway, parking 3. Gang carving on night stand 4. Tv was ancient 5. Furniture from the 80's 6. Sheets were thread bare 7. We had to ask for towels- non in room. 8.

"Decent priced hotel great location"
It was a pleasant stay only stayed one night walls were a little thin but for the price you can't complain in San Fran it was a 15 minute walk to pier 39 I know that my next trip to SF I'll stay here againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beauty in the bay"
Great location and great price! Close to Fisherman's Wharf and on the Crookedest Street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to bus stops. Away from the hussle and bussle of the Wharf, but close enough for a long walk to there if wanted. We would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, not so great Hotel"
Great location close to Fishermans wharf and decent pricing. Older man working there was very rude over the phone when I called to ask some more general questions before my check in date. Parking gets full fast. Bathroom was not very clean, there was no iron or ironing board in the room, we had to call to ask for one. Vending machines didn't work. Breakfast […] selection was not very big or tasty. I would only stay here again if everything else was booked. I would rather pay more and stay somewhere nicer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Below our expectations."
We arrived almost 1 hour prior to our check-in time (2pm rather than 3pm), and were happy that the front desk were able to accommodate us by allowing us to our room a bit early. There were 5 of us sharing a room (my husband and 3 kids + myself), and the desk clerk knew this, but did not offer us a roll-away bed. Once we got to the room, there were only […] 3 towels, so we had to call for additional (and the roll-away bed). The room was nice and spacious, but the carpet had some large stains all over it which made it look very dirty. It was disappointing to find that there were NO tissue boxes of any sort (not good if you have allergies are in need of a tissue, no soap holder, and NO shower curtain. So, once again we had to call for service of our room. To make things worse, the toilet water pressure was so poor that the toilet would not flush all the way, and we had to have someone come to unclog it more than once. We got to the point where we didn't even want to use the toilet, because we knew it would clog up. The handle in the bathtub was so loose that it felt like it could fall off, and the sink in the vanity was very slow. For the price of this hotel room, it was certainly not kept up to standards. They should really invest in repairing the many maintenance items that should get attention. I was surprised that when we checked out they didn't even offer us a discount for our trouble. I would not recommend this facility to anyone I know. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Pro: Great location ~ Can walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Can also walk to bus stop that takes you to the Golden Gate Bridge. Office staff able to give good information on how to get to places. Office also has great local maps available. Cons: Have to back out of parking lot ~ very tight space. Elevator doesn't always work, but there are steps.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well worth it"
Clean quiet hotel. Good location. Go to viking subs! Very good. Couldnt give it a 5 star because it didnt have a mini fridge. Stayed at club quarters in chicago at the same rate and they had every amenity.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel within walking distance to Warf."
Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were in walking distance to everything we wanted to see and do. Parking was a little cramped and you need tobe careful getting in and out of the shower or you might hit the sink, which is right next to the shower.Genuine Expedia guest review
We have booked it three times now. It is close to Ghiradelli Square, the Wharf and many other attractions. It is easy to find and very comfortable in accommodations. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We will book it again in the future. Thanks!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, but not the best"
Paid $13.80 for parking, and didn't have a parking spot. We stayed on the bottom floor, and could hear the people on the above floor every time they made any sort of movement. The walls were thin, could hear next door people's TV and talking all night. The room was non-smoking, but smelled strongly of cigarettes. The lady at the front desk was friendly. […] Hotel is close to main areas of San Francisco and was easy to get to. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Fisherman's Wharf"
This location is in walking distance to Ghiradelli Square and Fisherman's Wharf, two important spots to visit in San Francisco. A Bus Stop to get to the Golden Gate Bridge and Presidio is just around the corner. Our room was generously sized with all the modern conveniences and didn't feel too tight for a family of five.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate but worn out and dirty"
four day stay. Hotel staff skipped cleanup one day--no new towels etc. Very old and worn out hotel; not much value for the price except a place to sleep. Appears to be dirty.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location for Fisherman's Wharf, Ft Mason"
Excellent hotel if you are sight seeing in and around Fisherman's Wharf and Fort Mason. Walking distance (10-15mins) to Fisherman's Wharf and (10-15mins) to Fort Mason). Also, walking distance to cable car "station". Nice hotel property. Good internet. Clean room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not too shabby"
We were delivered by shuttle to the wrong Travelodge, the Presidio then walked down to another until finally reaching our destination at the 3rd Travelodge on Lombard St. This one definitely seemed the nicest. The room was large and adequate. The continental breakfast was welcome and offered something for everyone. Overall we believe we got a fair deal. […] Thanks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice and convenient place, excellent staff"
We visited San Francisco with my wife for a week (May, 2013). Overall, the staff is excellent, we asked for laundry after working hours (10pm) and they gave us the key. Asked for microwave and fridge, got them next day. The laundry room is huge (I guess it is like 20 washing machines + 20 dryers), so you never have to wait in line. Many other hotels/motels […] have just 1-2 washers/dryers. The motel has a parking space ($13 per day or so), which is helpful if you are travelling in a car. We had no problem with parking even after 11pm, there was always 1-2 space available. I was told they also have some parking space in a nearby garage, but I never had to use it, so do not know much about it. The location is quite convenient, the Van Ness will eventually lead you to US-101 south (Airport and the rest of the Valley), Lombard street goes straight to the Golden Gate park. Muni bus stop is around the corner (2 minutes walk). Walking to the Fisherman's Warf and Embarcadero takes 15-20 minutes, though. The room may or may not have microwave / fridge, so ask reception. They may need to move it from another room to you if you ask. There is also some breakfast (like toasts / bananas), but I did not try. Coffeemaker in the room was also convenient.

We arrived at 3pm and our room was not ready, trash cans full of rubbish, bed not made. The front desk immediately moved us to another room, and was very apologetic. Critique: Your roll away sags in the middle and needs to be replaced asap. Suggestion: put a shelf of cabinet in the shower room so you have a place to place your dry clothes (not on the […] floor). The overall experience was okay and we would stay there again when visiting but would like to see these changes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for Google I/O conference in Moscone center. Trolley #30 near hotel - 30 min.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was a little concerned becasue this was a 2 * hotel. I was completely suprised as the hotel looked as though it had just gone through a complete remodel. Everything was fresh painted, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable. No signs of bugs of any kind. This location is 1 block off Van Ness and easy to get into and […] out of. The ice machine was not working, but there was a liquor store a block away, as well as premium coffee and food outlets.

"Nice hotel well located"
Hotel was just perfect for what we are looking for, close to several bus stops routes, like 10 minutes away from fisherman's warf and about 20 minutes away from Golden Gate bridge, you will not need a car in San Francisco, since traffic is a nightmare, so, it is better to take the bus (bus, metro, tram, etc). If you take your car there, you will have […] to pay a small fee considering it is very expensive everywhere in SF. Breakfast is not the best, but it is fair enough for the hotel.

"Close to wharf great location nice"
Very friendly staff helpful getting cabs shuttle nice breakfast close to all places wharf would have been nice to have a good restaurant closeGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Travelodge By The Bay I wanted to thank you for your feedback and also point out a few things for future travelers. The air conditioners have a "power save" button on them which turns off the unit if there is nobody in the room for an extended period of time. For future travelers, be sure to turn this feature off if you'd like the unit to stay on. Also, we have an excellent restaurant on property named Boboquivaris. They are famous for their steak and crab dishes. They have been voted in the top 5 for steakhouses in San Francisco! There is also a number of small cafes, sandwich and coffee shops with in a 30 second walk from our property. For our future guests, come talk to the front desk and we will be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
"Very thin walls and drunk neighbors"
I stayed there 4/2013 and was woken up at midnight by my neighbors coming back to the hotel Drunk. Which normally wouldn't be a problem except the walls were paper thin. I could even hear the guy snore. My children got to learn the F word. So educational! The management didn't care to solve the issue of us losing 3 hours sleep due to the drunk guys.

"Great location in SF, good hotel for families."
This was a nice place to stay in San Francisco. Our room was very spacious, but I don't know if they are all like that. No frige or microwave, but maybe we could have requested one. We had a good view of the city. The bathroom was nice, but it was really small. Because of the window the shower head had to be mounted lower than normal, so it came up […] to about my collar bone ( I am 5' 8"). But the water pressure was good and the temperature worked well. Lots of closet space. The breakfast was better than the continental breakfast described when we booked the room. There were chocolate and blueberry muffins (two different kinds, not together in one), cereal, juice, toast, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, coffee. As with most places in SF, space was an issue. The breakfast room was really small, only a few people could eat in there, compared to the many people trying to eat right then. There were a few tables outside. We just ate in our room. The parking was adequate, and I don't think $13 is too much to pay in that area. We were able to walk to Fisherman's Wharf. We were in walking distance of a nice beach, Ghiradelli Square, many piers, etc. Lomabard St, the crookedest street, was on the way to the Wharf, but we went the other way so we didn't have to walk up the steep, steep hill. We do walk a lot, so others may not want to walk that far, I think it was about a mile to pier 39, maybe a mile and a half. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance to tourist acitivities."
Parking was difficult but available. When we were there the elevator was out of order so getting out with luggage was hampered. Breakfast was just passable I would try to eat elsewhere. The rooms and bath were clean but pretty dated.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great for a budget"
Overall the rooms were clean. The location was great we were close to everything we wanted to do. Parking is really crowded if theres no parking spot at the hotel make sure to ask the front desk because they have 2 other lots available. We didnt know that and we ended up driving around for a while.

"Nice!! Friendly!! Great Value!!"
We stayed here for the San Francisco Rock & Roll Marathon. The location was Great, and the Staff was Awesome! Even though they were having a very busy weekend, they allowed us a late check out so we could shower after the race. The breakfast was very nice, and the Hotel is located within walking distance of some very fine restaurants. We thought it […] might be a little noisy due to its location, but it was very quiet. The windows are double pained, and there was no problem with noise, just the big city noises like sirens you hear in any large city. Overall, it was a great! the room price was right, parking is very reasonable, and all the staff was great! We will be booking again for next years race! Thank You Travellodge!
