"Cost vs. Quality"
Not typical of the high quality I am used to for hotels, however, considering the area and the cost; not bad. Parking tight, but available.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to everything! Would have been a perfect score but the ice machine was out of order.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"do not recommend if you want a good experience in San Fran"
Room is small and old. It looks really scary. Walking to the hotel from pier 39 or Fisherman's Wharf is really long. Would not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It filled it's purpose"
Very old and further from the tourist attractions than I thought...concidering it's age it was clean and bug free. Close to public transport...but did not realize I would be using the bus while on my short San Francisco stay....Staff was more than helpful and let us to keep our car past our check-out time a big plus!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Last hotel, worst hotel."
Horrible. Ground floor room with draught coming in from round the door. Slept with suitcases against the door. Did not feel particularly safe in this hotel. Needs a complete refurbishment. Had stayed in 10 hotels over a 4 week holiday, this was by far the worst.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Price/Value Option in a Very Good Location"
Hotel is tired yet serviceable. Touching up a few things (e.g. ripped bed linens) would dramatically improve impression for a minimum investment.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for visiting San Francisco"
The hotel does not look very well, but the room is comfortable and clean. Although the carpet needs some cleaning, the room and the bath room were clean. The staff at the lobby was very kind and helpfull with information on what to do an where to eat. He also helped us finding the address of a business we need to visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Basic Accommodations at good price."
Clean Room, comfortable bed, good location. I would recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy, tiny-rooms, & you may NOT get free parking"
The location was good with plenty of dining within walking distance. The rest of the experience was disappointing. The parking was limited, first come, first serve and I noticed the hotel was allowing the neighboring Amici restaurant delivery cars to park there, filling up the very tiny lot and making parking tough. The room was the smallest, tightest […] room I have ever stayed in, we literally had to climb over one another to get around inside. It was very noisy from constant street noise, thin walls and thin floors and you could hear every word anyone spoke from the parking lot into the rooms. The free wi-fi was terrible to almost non-existant. Please choose alternate accommodations, I cannot recommend this Travelodge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location was great, close to main attractions. The room was very small, but fairly clean. Good price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel for Anyone on a Budget"
This hotel is in a perfect location to walk, bus, and see all that San Francisco is about. The staff was helpful. It is not a pretentious hotel, but because of the location, we would stay at again, and recommend to others. We got to see the San Francisco, locals are proud of.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent and low priced"
Decent and low priced hotel in a good neighbourhood with loads of bars and restaurants within walking distance plus easy access to public transport (bus on Chestnut, which is one street over - $2 for two hours). It's not the nicest looking place, but all clean. Take your own shampoo/conditioner though, as the 'conditioning shampoo' is useless. Also, […] blankets and sheet on the bed instead of a duvet, which is rather annoying but otherwise fine. Overall a decent place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place on a Budget"
The Travelodge is a great deal for the price. My boyfriend and I visited San Francisco for five days recently and enjoyed Travelodge Golden Gate. We had so much stuff planned to do while there we didn't need a four-star hotel, just a place to crash at night. The room was clean and everything was in working order. The staff was very pleasant and helpful […] when we had questions about the best way to get downtown and even helped us set up a shuttle to the airport. The location is great too, the neighborhood felt very safe with lots of shops and restaurants on the surrounding blocks, it's within walking distance of the bay and Fisherman's Wharf (about a mile and a half) and several bus stops nearby. Overall, I was very happy with our stay. There's so much to do in SF, I'd highly recommend staying here and saving your money for other activities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"I recommend it. Good inexpensive deal."
Great costumer service. Good location. Clean. It worked out very good for two nights.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's close to a main road, so we figured out how to have the fan on at night to hide the noise from the cars. It was easy to catch public transportation to get to all the tourist attractions. Very affordable. Walgreens was right around the corner.Genuine Expedia guest review
comfortable and good location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The bed was awful!!!!! It felt like sleeping on a piece of plywood with some springs beneath it. When I got there to check in I had to wait over 5 minutes without anyone even coming to help me, despite having rung the doorbell and seeing people through the window. Once I was helped, the lady was extremely nice (but not apologetic for the wait). All […] other staff were really friendly as well. The location is good. Hope for a room away from the street. My room was the furthest from the street possible and I still heard traffic all night. The room and bathroom were clean. It had a fridge and microwave which was nice.

"Sonoma Creek a pleasant Inn"
Has a nice "Old Sonoma" feel. Wifi is mostly not usable. Cafe next door for breakfast or lunch is nice. A bit out of the way - I liked that.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and simple. No frills."
Location right next to Marina area. Lots of shops, restaurants, cafes. Room was clean and had all regular amenities: coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge. No complaints. Area right outside of hotel a little seedy. Only issue was with billing: charged ahead of time by hotels.com, charged again once I stayed there. Fixed with a couple of phone calls. […] Minor hassle. No issue resolving. Friendly, helpful staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Well situated and comfortable"
Hotel well situated in the middle of San Francisco. We could walk to the Fisherman's Wharf, and there also are plenty of buses passing by. We can find a lot of restaurants in the neighborhood, that is very quiet at night (did not feel dangerous whatsoever). The room was rather clean and comfortable. There was a little noise from the street but nothing […] really annoying! We stayed there a week for vacation and were very satisfied. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location ! Cheap ! value for money"
As the title says, about 2 miles walking from the wharf on lombard street and a mile to the crooked street...a mile to the palace of fine art and great resteraunts surrounding the hotel. So convenient and nice. Only con is that the room was a little small - all rooms have double beds but are tightly spaced. Even though the room and bathroom were clean […] and the TV had a lot of channels incl. HBO (not that you'l spend watching TV but good to know). Overall great stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall a pleasant stay. I think Marina area is a nice place to stay for those who drive and needs free parking. Back of hotel is Chestnut St with Starbucks, Pete's coffee, plus a host of dining options esp recommend this Sushi bar called Naked Fish - fabulous sashimi i had that for almost 4 nites straight. Also a big supermart Walgreaves. No complaints […] overall except that the walls and ceiling abit thin and you can hear some thugs on the floor when people walking in the room above. But for the price you are getting it's acceptable. Not too noisy overall had good night sleep. But do expect the standard furnishings of a 3-star motel style. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was a terrible place. No one ever in the office, couldn't call the office because of a phone system problem, the place needed updating, and there was a chance the customers may have to park on the street because their parking lot was too small to acommodate them. I can't believe Expedia listed this "joint" as a hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is very well centered amidst many good restaurants, has ample parking, and is a good value for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good location, friendly staff, free parking, free internet, but not so fast. Cleaniness is OK, microwave, TV etc appliances available. Quiet place, if your neighbours are quiet :))) The location of this place is the most significant for me for choosing this motel. By the way, Lombard street has a plenty of similar motels - some better, some not.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location - good for the price"
It's a "nothing fancy" hotel but the location is perfect for walking around San Francisco's Marnia area. Lots and lots of great eating places were no more than a couple of blocks away. The room is kind of small, the TV was funky, but over a good place to stay for what we paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"San Francisco Trip"
I asked for a roll away bed in requests only to be told at check in that they do not have any at this property. They don't change bed sheets, i guess, because my husband counted 6 long hairs on the sheet after pulling the bed spread down to get into bed. Also, the pillows seemed as if they tried washing them because they were very lumpy and very un […] comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location for this little hotel was great. We especially like the surrounding neighborhood. Lots of great places to eat and drink. Perfect access to the Golden Gate Bridge if you're heading to Napa.......Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for price"
The hotel was in a hot location. I came here after staying downtown at the Palace, so I expected the location in the Marina district to be crappy - but to my surprise, there are a ton of restaurants and shops and bars within walking distance, and a decent nightlife without even needing to get a cab!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, will go back!"
The hotel building looks a little shabby, but the room was clean and tidy. We needed a place to sleep in and it was just that. The room wasn't big, but the bed was clean and comfortable and the bathroom had hot water and a nice shower. I recommend it for those that want a good place to crash and to visit the city. The surrounding neighborhood is full […] of restaurants that are usually open past 9pm. That's great after a long day of walking! And of course, it's great that they have free parking for guests. We had a great time in San Francisco and we will go back to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Golden Gate Travelodge-good locationa dn free parking"
This was one of the few motels in S.F. that had free parking. It was comfortable and clean. Good eating places nearby and not that far from places of interest.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Can't wait to go back"
Initially by look of the hotel I got scared, because I stayed in similar hotel in new york and it was horrible experience. But surprisingly hotel was good . Representative ware helpful they had excellent knowledge about san Francisco. Cream on the top nearby breakfast restaurant ‘HOT PLATE’ is must visit place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worth Every Penny"
The staff was polite and helpful. The hotel isn't the nicest, but for the price I paid, it was worth every penny. They've clearly made attempts to keep the rooms up to date and comfortable. Small issues I experienced during my stay, such as a small room and a drafty door, were concessions I was willing to make for such a great deal right in the heart […] of San Francisco. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay for the price"
I figured that we would save some money on the room since we wouldn't be in the room much anyway, but the bed and sheets were uncomfortable and we could not sleep through a night. The hotel staff was very friendly and there are a lot of good restaurants nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Can't wait to go back"
Hotel manager is a very nice person, room is clean and i like this hotel,Can't wait to go back!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worth the price you pay."
I had to visit san francisco for a night , after reading so many reviews i chose this hotel to stay. Its a nice small inn, convenient location on the bus line( in case you don't have a rental car). The front desk staff is very helpful and friendly. One of the best thing about this hotel is that parking is FREE, which is hard to find in the city. Room […] was clean. There was coffee maker, electric iron, along with other basic amenities. Overall it was a pleasant stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice little motel in great location"
Great simple little motel in a great location for all the sights. It has loads off restaurants nearby and local super markets and gas stations just up the street.The hop on/off city sightseeing bus drops of one block away so we used this and the local bus which arrives every 5mins to get around quickly and cheaply.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel, considering the price and location"
Friendly staff that made suggestions on things to do while in San Francisco. Not the nicest looking rooms, or hotel, but you get what you pay for. If you want a nicer hotel, then expect to pay more. It's not the ritz, so don't have high expectations. My blanket did have a slight odour, but it was very faint, so it didn't really bother me. The positives -friendly, […] helpful, knowledgeable staff. -close to ghirardelli square, and the pier (where Alcatraz tours are). -close to diners, restaurants, Starbucks, Golden Gate Bridge. -parking is free The negatives -slight smell in blanket -free wifi is very slow -ice machine didn't work I don't think you'll find a better hotel/motel in the same location, for a similar price.

"ordinary hotel, nice surroundings"
Location is very good. Parking space is limited, but we did not encounter any parking problem Maintenance is a bit of a problem: the drain was cloggedGenuine Expedia guest review
Very good hotel for the price. Very helpfull staff. Lively area with plenty of bars and restaurants. Very regular bus into the centre of san fran. Only downside is that its a bit noisy, would be quieter in the room if the door was a better fit! Overall though had parking and comfort and no problems. Stayed 2 nights in decemberGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just fine... for what it is"
This is a no-frills motel. No lobby, no elevators, no in-house restaurant, and no view. But our room was spotless, the bed comfortable, and everything worked. Most notably, the young couple that manages the place went out of their way to be helpful. And the price was right. The motel is situated in a second-string shopping district, with a handful […] of boutiques, a Walgreens, the Apple Store, and *lots* of little restaurants all on the same block as the motel. It's a 40 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf, or a $10 taxi-ride. It's farther to Chinatown and Union Square, but still only 10 minutes by cab. We stayed two nights prior to embarking on a cruise.

heart of San Fran. This area is expensive so we did not get a nice hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A very good accommodation option"
The hotel is located on a very busy street but it met all our needs. The room is functional and clean whilst the hotel itself is very close to a large number of bars and cafes in nearby Steiner and Chestnut Streets. Public transport options are pretty good. We enjoyed San Francisco and would happily retun to Travelodge Golden Gate if we were to return. […] Breakfast at "The Home Plate" less than a minutes walk away was also a treat.

"Basic, clean, great location, bit noisy."
The location's great - Chestnut Street right behind the hotel is wonderful for shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and even a supermarket. The bus into town (no 30) stops right there too, very handy. It's a motel format where your room opens directly onto the courtyard where the cars are parked, just off the main street. The hotel's basic but all you'd […] need if you're on a city break like us and not spending much time at the hotel. The fridge and microwave in all the rooms was handy too. It was really clean and we had lots of space in our room. It was noisy, both from traffic on the very busy Lombard Street (and we were at the back of the hotel, as far as possible from the road) and from other guests coming back to the hotel late and talking loudly or even shouting late into the night and the early morning. We also had an unfortunate incident of a drunk couple talking and taking cocaine right outside our door at 2am one Sunday. They were guests at the hotel, but this had nothing to do with the hotel, it could have happened anywhere, so I'm just mentioning it to remind others to keep their hotel rooms locked when they're in them. Any other hotel in any city could have had this happen - it just happened to be this one while we were there. I would recomend this hotel to anyone needing somewhere well situated, clean and basic as a base to explore San Francisco. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location for the money"
I would stay here again. I did not have great expectations as the hotel was inexpensive and it was exactly what I expected. All the previous reviews mentioned location and feeling safe in the neighborhood which is exactly what we wanted and what we got. There are great restaurants one block down and the Union Street shops are within walking distance. […] I would definitely stay again as all I look for in a hotel is a clean safe place to sleep and shower! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location on a budget. Road a little noisy but great location to stay for good restaurants after a busy day. Would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
