Very Comfortable/Excellent location

This hotel is very comfortable, quiet and clean and in an excellent location. The parking is tight but is free and we were always able to find a spot. The rom had a microwave and a refrigeratorwhich is very nice for a long stay and is close to many very nice restaurants. Very good value for a reasonble price.

Don't go to Mels even though it is right across the street----Chestnut St., Lombard St. and the adjoining cross streets are packed with every kind and price of cuisine imaginable

super location for walking & mass transit

Golden Gate Travelodge is located on a major bus route and close to many necessities such as restaurants, drug stores, movies, etc. We walked to the Golden Gate Bridge as well as to the wharf. Our room was fairly large, quite trendy and very well maintained. I was very pleased at how quiet it was, especially since it was on a main thoroughfare.

We loved the Spanish tapas restaurant and Mel's Drive-In just a block away. Best of all was our daily breakfast haunt, The Home Plate, just two doors south. What great creative food at reasonable prices.

Little big Motel

After a five hour drive from Northern California to keep a doctor appointment early the next day, big, fancy, and expensive wasn't my priority. The Travelodge, Golden Gate, was an exception to the criteria. The room, although somewhat small, was aptly appointed with a clean, fresh remodel, new furnishings, including queen bed, air-conditioning, and amenities found only in a higher price bracket. The Motel's location is close to many of the city's major attractions, and there are dozens of resturants, and eaterys, with a variety of cuisine, within eyesight. These folks take pride in every aspect, and it shows!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Leave your car in the free parking lot at the Motel and, for around ten bucks, take a cab,(or less by shuttle), to Pier 39 and Fishermans Wharf, Chinatown, Japantown, Coit Tower, the Presidio, or the Cable Cars, to name a few.

Hidden gem in the Marina District

SF is a wonderful city, but expensive, and it's hard to find a dependable place to stay that's affordable, and in a safe area. This hotel fits the bill. Cheap rooms with all you need, that are clean and comfortable and not much else. The room I had was recently renovated, so the shower, toilet, sink etc. were all clean, solid and good quality without issues. Bed was comfortable, though room was a little cold due to poor seal under door letting the air and road noise in. Just a small thing, really, as the service was spectacular and they were extremely helpful in getting me around town. Bus stop right around the corner takes you to downtown, and nearby is the bridge, Presidio, Marina and G. Square. All you need and for a great price!

Right down the street is an iHop, but also a low key privately owned breakfast place that serves HUGE breakfasts for what in SF is a low price. I got an omellette for about $12 tax included, which came with a scone, pancakes, potatoes, toast and you name it. Way more than I could eat, and as I said in SF that is a cheap deal. They also have a great selection of seafood breakfast items, and other goodies for lunch etc. Great service too, and oh yeah, the food was great too. :D

Wonderful location, can walk everywhere

Have stayed in this hotel many times. The location is amazing. We've never had a problem with noise even tho it's on a busy street. Can walk everywhere in The Marina, good restaurants and shops. It's not a fancy place, but we're never in our room except to sleep. Too much to see and do.

decent value in an expensive city

not bad for the money:a decent room located near many decent restaurants.hotel does not have a lobby but has a small office which is staffed from early morning to late evening. everyone we dealt with there was courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful in helping us plan where to go and how to best get there.parking looked like it would not be a problem there but we opted to return the rented car early as we didn't need it, would have been a pain to park wherever we took it, and riding the buses, trollies, BART and the cable cars is part of the san francisco experience.you get what you pay for and you get your money's worth.

Comfortable but frustrating parking.

The room was very comfortable, quiet and nice. We were on the 3rd floor so we were able to get our exercise in. The only frustrating thing was parking. They share their parking lot with the pizza place next door so delivery cars took up most of the parking spaces. Plus the parking spaces are very very tight. But it was free parking so can't complain too much.
