We have reservations for the Mayflower Motel June 30 & July 1. Is this a decent motel in a decent area? Is public transportation nearby? Are there places to eat nearby?
You mean on Bush St? This is a hotel not a motel. But a well regarded budget hotel.
I’m perplexed as why you would book without knowing the area. It’s downtown SF. Yes there is transit and places to eat.
Now if you’re not talking about Bush St all bets are off.Edited: 26 May 2018, 08:47
I meant Hotel, my mistake! We have a limited budget which was my reason for choosing it. I am also quite busy & haven't had a whole lot of time to do research. That's where I thought this travel forum would be helpful. I still have time to cancel my reservations if needed.
Yes it fine Central area. Check out our top questions right side of the webpage
We are volunteers here and love to help but when a poster says they are too busy — it sounds kinda like a one way street — we are busy too
We also have an 84 year old who has some walking limitations - can't walk for long distances at a time. In your opinion, would this area be difficult for her? How close is the public transportation? Thanks in advance for any advice!
There are a lot of hills in SF. With an older person with some mobility issues, you might want to choose a flatter part of town. Or be willing to grab a taxi or Uber/Lyft when needed.
