"Nice place, great location"
Great last minute place to stay. Room was clean. Location was near Fisherman's Wharf. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Parking was tough. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short walk to wharf"
Older hotel but clean and with a very gracious front desk staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel, but a bit expensive"
Great hotel and location. very clean and firndly staff, but a bit expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the hotel was nice and the staff was friendly. They failed to tell us that they charge your CC a percentage of your total stay for a deposit. But in 5-7 days you get it back. I guess we are used to staying a night or two at a hotel and not pay for parking while we are staying in that hotel. So they are actually charging you an additional $17.00 […] to your bill.

Stayed at this hotel but would never again. Suite advertised sleeping 6. Extra charges were never mentioned until I got to the hotel . Could have stayed at a much nicer place for what we paidGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, safe neighborhood"
The room was more spacious than an average room and clean. When we checked in we asked to have a quieter side room and the clerk obliged right away. Our room had a nice view of Golden Gate Bridge which was bonus. The parking was good and less expensive than other hotels (still expensive, but less so) and again the clerk was helpful to us with getting […] us to a good parking spot. THey have continental breakfast which was pretty slight, but better than nothing. Overall a great stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"the room helped make our whole trip a success!"
Our stay was wonderful. The parking cost was very reasonable and it was still cheaper to take a cab back to hotel after walking all day with three kids. Good eats close by, walking the neighborhood got to see some local san fran too. Very safe neighborhood. Next door is Bobo's steakhouse, rated in the top ten steakhouses in the U.S. We love steak so […] this was great. Yes, on saturday night could hear some neighbors next door but not a big deal. Cleaning staff was awesome. Room was large - perfect for three kids of different ages could all have space even without it being a suite - this was an added bonus for us. The room helped make our whole trip a success. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location great size room"
We enjoyed our stay at the Travelodge by the Bay. It was comfortable and convenient, especially the laundry facility . Traveling for 2 weeks with 5 people made me appreciate a hotel that had a good laundry mat available. The neighborhood was safe and we had easy access to everything we wanted to see on our vacation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"our stay at travelodge by the bay"
the stuff was was very friendly, rooms were comfy, and the location was close to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pretty good hotel, reasonable price for parking, great location. The room was nice but please beware, the walls are so thin you can hear conversations in adjacent rooms. We were lucky, surrounded by families like us, but if you get noisy people beside you, you won't sleep. Very friendly and helpful staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good value for a place like SF, did provide free breakfast (muffins, milk, cereal, apples, toast, coffee, etc.), but parking I think was $15/day. The area is nice, with eating options nearby and close to the piers. Also easy bus transportation. The room was clean and overall met our needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Located in a convenient location, friendly staff, spacious room, ok breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was great. Very pleased with our room and employees. The only negative thing to say, the shower was a bit small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay and close to pier 39"
Rm 117 only had 1 night stand with a king size bed. There was no tv directory. The hotel staff are excellent. You must pay for parking, But we checked out at 10am and were allowed to leave our car parked till 5pm. If you are a light sleeper, you may want an upstairs room as its an older motel and you can hear those above you walking about. I felt safe […] and secure. The heater worked fine even though it was not needed. Also nice to have our own room safe and free wifi. Very clean room for an older motel. I will definitely stay there again. Nice soft towels and very clean bathroom. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We thought the Travel Lodge was a great spot to stay. It was located close to bus and trolly lines and easy to walk to a several different neighborhoods. Definitely budget friendly and the newly remodeled room was fantastic. Considering we spent all of our time touring the city, it was a welcome place to come back to and rest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to fishermans wharf.and russian hill.ok motel.to expensive.parking is 17.00 a night & is hard to find parking at night .small parking lot.if u pay for parking do not move ur car.cause u might not get a parking spot.at nightGenuine Expedia guest review
Let me start off by saying Rina is the bomb! She reminds me a lot of myself.. Professional yet a honest to her customers so she made my experience worth while. The room was nice and very clean the only downfall is there was 4 channels on the TV - I guess something was wrong with it? It wouldn't allow me to add more or anything but it's okay it was chill.. […] Sucks having to pay for parking too but it's the city.. Anyways I would go back Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The overall stay was ok. The breakfast was meager, but "free." There were hard boiled eggs, cereal, bread, packaged muffins, apples and yogurt. The parking lot is limited, but I was told that if you receive a parking pass and there are no spots, they will "valet" park it for you (move your car around if it's in someone else's way). The room felt clean. […] The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the pier and a 5 minutes walk to the curvy part of Lombard street. The staff were fine. The hotel is located near two busy streets so try to get a room further back or bring earplugs. It didn't really bother me, but would definitely bother a light sleeper. Our door was also not properly sealed and there a a slight gap. There is a window unit air conditioner which helps to drown some of the sound though. They also have an elevator which we didn't use, but make the stay more convenient for some. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great room for family of 5"
This was a nice room for our family of 5, which is often hard to find. Easy walking distance to many fun things to do.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and clean"
We lucked out with a corner room that had a complete kitchen! The parking situation was scary, but the room was cool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pros: Location, near Cable Car, Bus Stop. Nice neighborhood in the Marina District. Cons: Front desk people were not very friendly. Parking is $17 per day, which is good but spaces were so tight and very, very, very difficult to fit in and especially out of. If you have a car that is bigger than medium size, then find a different hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was extremely pleased with the staff and how helpful they were. It was also nice to have FREE wifi and breakfast as most of the hotels that I found in the area did not. Great location! I would stay here again although I would book a second level room as we could hear the people above us walking around etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was over priced and had to pay for parking, I expected a lot more. Room and bathroom was disappointing. Staff not overly friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An honest review"
I had just stayed in SF 2 weekends prior and was not looking to pay another $600 for a room so I booked the Travelodge. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The room and property was clean. The beds are on the firm side but comfortable. Continental breakfast is offered. It consists of mini muffins, yogurt, cereal, fruit with juices and coffee. […] Not bad for being included in room cost. I've stayed at much more expensive hotels and they give you nothing. The only knock I have on the property is the noise level. You are right off of Lombard/Van Ness and you can hear the traffic. Also walls are thin so you can hear loud people in adjacent rooms. I would probably stay again even with the noise.

Expensive parking fee of 31+ for 1 night , people next door very noisy ,they stayed awake until 3am , breakfast room crowded , I felt rushed coz no enough room for guests.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
False advertising of free airport transportation- They DON'T have any such thing, room was dark and dreary.. so old, old tv, old tv stand, old linens, no fitted bottom sheet on the bed, old furniture, did not feel safe or clean- faucet was broken in bathroomGenuine Expedia guest review
Conveniently located on Lombard ST, short trip to Fisherman's Wharf. The staff is friendly and helpful. There was no microwave in my room and the free breakfast is just cereal and toast. Great value for the money, though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it was a one night stay in the right place - had to do alot of walking which was ok with us, but not for a person who couldn't handle the street hills of SFGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not too shabby"
Great deal. Rooms are spacious. Near wharf. Great deal for the price :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just for fun"
My boyfriend and I wanted to do a trip to San Francisco, we like this hotel for its price and location. It's like maybe a 15 min walk to fishermen's warf. However, they are currently remodeling this hotel, you can hear them working it. From the pictures they have at the front desk it going to look really nice. The rooms themselves were ok, nothing to […] fancy. The walls are paper thin so bring ear plugs. The beds are comfy and the sheets are good enough. The bathroom was incredibly small. I would not want want to be big or tall and have to shower. I'm 5'7" and I had to duck down to wash my hair. And I don't know about the other rooms but this one did not have a fan in the bathroom so you might want to bring some air fresher. The breakfast was ok, they had muffins and cereal and juice. Other than that, great place and very nice staff. And if your looking for an amazing place to eat there is a restaurant next door called Boboquivari aka Bobo's but make a reservation.

Hotel was in the mist of a remodel. Our bathroom door would not open all the way due to the new vanity. Breakfast was Ok cereal and toast. Great location for activities along the warf.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a great experience at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a 2 year old with us and the staff was more than accommodating to give us a room with no one under us so we don't disturb them. Overall it was a great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"our Family Trip"
Plus - great room, great location, kids enjoyed all the choices at the continental breakfast, friendly staff. Drawbacks - narrow parking lot, thin walls. We were all in bed and we heard a family come in rather late and was able to hear everything. Overall great experience. We would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is fine for what you pay for. Our room was renovated. Nice amount of space. Parking is cheap compared to other others. It is conveniently located. My only gripe would be the thin walls. We could hear the conversations of the people next to us so clearly. For a place to put your head, this hotel is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was perfect, close to all transportation, walking distance to many sights, and had reasonable parking rates. Although it was nothing fancy, it was clean, had friendly service, and a decent free continental breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value for location"
The hotel has a great location just blocks from Ghiradelli square, Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, and a plethora of bars, pubs, and restaurants. The rooms are larger than I expected, and in spite of being on a main street, was fairly quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We don't spend a lot of time in our hotel rooms anyway... But this hotel was great!!! Especially for the price. Clean, neat, and the front desk service was great!! Safe neighborhood to walk to the pier. We would definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is ok for a few days. I paid for a room of 5 people, however they charged 17 dollar for an entra bed when I got to the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
At the moment it's just an very used hotel but it's being renovated for 2014. I chose to pay $129 a night cause I was scared to pay less in that area The location is good.... Within walking to fishermans warf, the bus line is close so easy to get around, while walking around we noticed lots of hotels on Lonbard St/van Ness that don't show up in general […] searchers so maybe it's worth the effort to check them out.

"walked to the wharf in 10 minutes"
We initially had some concerns about it being a Travelodge, but all of that has changed. The cerk was very helpful when we arrived and answered all of my questions before I could even ask them. We found that we had a Continental Breakfast, that included hot and cold cereals, fruit, coffee, breakfast rolls and so much more. The cleanliness of the room […] was obviuos upon entering. What truly made the location top notch was that the Travelodge by the Bay was only a 10 minute walk to the wharf. We have a new place to stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"would stay agin"
Great location. Friendly staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No street noise, however, neighbors in a joining buildings noisy. Alley noise, garbage cans, laundry room facility very noisy. Wasted my money.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Travelodge by the Bay could use some updating, but other than the outdated look, it's a perfectly acceptable place to stay. Overall, very clean with courteous, friendly and helpful staff. The Continental breakfast is about as basic as it gets, but at least you can grab something on your way out the door. If you're not planning on spending a lot […] of time in your room while in SF, the Travelodge would be a good consideration. It's situated 1 block from the 47/49/30 buses, which are major routes through the city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. I did have a couple problems with the 3rd floor occupants because they were making a lot of noise. I called front desk and they said they would handle it but the noise continued.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Overpriced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were there since we came to the Realter Convention. A distance from the Convention center, which we knew, but near other areas we enjoy.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is very old. Carpets were very dirty and the ceiling above you creaks badly all night. It was so bad I awoke with a start thinking someone was in my room when it was just the people above us. It is convenient to walk to everything but I wouldn't stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Travelodge By The Bay Thank you for taking the time to share your the experience of your recent stay. I wanted to let you and all future travelers know that we are going to be doing a complete remodel in January and February of 2014. We are going to be changing everything in the rooms from the carpets to the TVs. Generally, you shouldn't be able to hear people walking on the floor above you. Chances are they were doing more than just walking around, sometimes it is families who have small children running around. In the future, give the front desk a call and we will ask the people to quiet down. We are here 24 hours a day so feel free to give us a call anytime. Again, thanks for your feedback and please come stay with us again the next time you are in San Francisco.
The staff was very nice and helpful. They made room for our car when the parking lot was full. Great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
