“Location location”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Adequate. Room OK. Bed comfortable. Breakfast a joke and access to rooms not very pleasant. Also we were blocked in in the car park and lost 15 minutes. Location is brilliant and prices are also good and so it suited us well on a limited budget

We got to this hotel out of a promotion on hotelcoupons on our way to san francisco. The inutial price was supposed to be $69+tax ended up being 90. Upon opening our room's door the stench to disinfectact was almost unbearable to the point of making my wife get a headache. When we complained the front desk people offered some liquid spray air freshener that would have been worse. We ended up buying some air wick in order to be able to sleep through the night. I had the stench on my nostrils for two days. By the way the room was very noisy and we had to endure a next door party until 5am.
Now for the pros. The location of this hotel couldn't be better, and its one of the few to offer free parking. The night shift front desk clerk, Balmoral was the most helpful. The rooms were clean and the bed confortable.

I have seen a few negative reviews, but this Travelodge was great. (not fancy) Room was clean and location was within walking distance to trolly's and Fisherman's Wharf. Neighborhood was safer than the union square hotels. Desk clerk Balmore was very helpful, gave great directions and recommendations, be sure to note there is a charge for parking, I think it was $16, but every place in San Francisco charges for parking and most places alot higher.

Thank you so much for the honest review. I am sure Balmore will appreciate the compliment. The charge for parking is actually $13.80, you were very close! I hope to to see you again in the future!

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at the Travelodge. This location was vary close and convenient to all attractions in San Fransisco. The staff at the Travelodge were friendly and attentlive to all our needs. Check in was a snap . The gated underground parking was a nice safe place to leave my new car. We both enjoyed a great nights sleep in a clean and quite enviroment.

Room Tip: "ask for a suite with a private balcony"

This location is excellent, allows you to visit to many different places, many in walking distance. The room was very spacious, the bathroom was a little small, and the shower head is low if your are over 5'10" tall. We did not have breakfast, but the breakfast area is non-existent, right next the reception desk. Parking is reasonable, (less than $14.00), but honestly, for the amount we paid, parking should be included. The housekeepers were very accommodating to us because they allowed us to move into the room a little early, then returned came to vacuum after we left. All the linens were washed, not just the sheets, but the comforters and blankets, too! I wold stay there again, but it was a little high, however, it is San Francisco in a highly desirable area. Our room was over the restaurant, and did not notice any noise at all.

Room Tip: Location, location, location and parking (parking is really a pain in San Francisco!) on premises
