Travelodge at the Presidio

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Normally a Marriott guy, was somewhat hesitant about staying in a smaller motel. But I had a great experience, and will enjoy returning to this location when in San Francisco. Proximity to Presidio, restaurants and Chestnut Street was an unexpected benefit. Had a car, and left it parked in the limited parking for 3 days - next time, no need for car. Plenty of things within walking distance.

Location is perfect, next to Presidio, close to bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Fairly quiet for a city motel. Beds are quite comfortable. Staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast is just cereal, rolls, juice, coffee, fruit. There's a convenience store right next door. This is a great value, highly recommended.

We had a great stay at this location - we decided to walk and bus on our visit to SanFrancisco and the owner/manager gave us great advise on bus routes and how to get around - it made all the difference! Our room was very nice and clean. They had a simple free breakfast which was nice as well. Love being so close to The Presidio and a nice little store and awesome pizza joint just a couple doors down! I would definately stay here again!

warm welcome. outstanding help for SF visit. Travellodge gives us all basics you need for wonderful visit of SF. forget the luxuary reception in downtown where I usually stay during my business visits in SF. they are generic, Travelodge el presidio is much better

Nice clean room in a great location.

We loved the location because we wanted to spend time at the Presidio. The staff was very friendly and helpful when I asked to print boarding passes at 9:30 at night!! Even though parking was minimal we were able to park close by without paying.

so quiet - area is Federal -owned so there wasn't any after 8 heavy traffic - desk staff was awesome - friendly and helpful - Thank you especially to[...]for all his help! - not much to choose from for breakfast but what was there was plentiful and the coffee was fresh. Older hotel - very basic - but can't be beat for friendly and quiet.

We were very pleased with location and comfort.

this hotel is perfect for my needs. It is in a excellent location, little congestion, has the home town small village feel, near markets, restaurants , moive house, and the presidio park.

Hotel is on extension of Lombard St just outside the Presidio away for Rt 101 traffic noise. Rooms and bath were clean but VERY SMALL. Beds were comfortable. We walked to dinner - there are several restaurants within walking distance. Staff was helpful and friendly.

We stayed for four days in Jan. The staff was always willing to give suggestions/help/were very freindly. The room we had was very clean and smelled good. The heater/AC was very powerful. There is an IHOP and Mels Diner just down the street, an English pub at the corner and a small general store next door. We thought the location was great. Right next to the presidio and only a short walk or quick drive to most of the touristy spots. We would definately stay there again. Only things we didn't like was the water pressure in the shower was a bit low and the king sized bed was so firm that we had trouble sleeping.

Clean, quiet and friendly staff.

We drove down to San Francisco for a family vacation to check out the sites and visit some friends. We were there Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. We arrived about one hour before check in but they weren't ready to check us in but allowed us to use the free parking (a HUGE plus in San Francisco). The motel is right next to the Presidio Park entrance and only a few blocks from the Palace of Fine Arts. Two great places to take an early morning or evening walk. It's about a 12 to 15 block walk to the Wharf which comes out to just over a mile but my wife and I didn't mind the walk because it's such a great city to walk in. As far as the room is concerned there were no red flags. It was clean and it even looks like they were newly renovated. The bathroom looked modern and was also very clean. Lombard is a very busy street, however, the Motel is about two blocks away from the busy section making for a quieter environment. I didn't notice any traffic noise at all. Although there is free parking there aren't enough spots for everyone if the motel is full. Upon arriving at the motel in our car Friday night at about 11:00pm there were no spots available but we were fortunate enough to find one right across the street. All in all parking was not a problem. I have stayed in many budget motels in my life and this place is one of the tops!

All went very well. My children live inthe Presidio. It couldn't be more convenient. I was alone and felt very safe.

nice clean comfortable hotel. nothing special though. the check-in/check-out staff was very friendly and helpful. the bed was very comfortable. We did like the fact that they have flat screen TV's on the wall, it provides more space in the room. conveniently located right next to the Presidio of San Francisco which is so rich with military history, also the Palace of Fine Arts.

The Travelodge at the Presidio was really a great hotel to stay at. First, check in is at 3...we drove up from Los Angeles and arrived way too early. The ladies at the hotel allowed us to check in early (once they had clean rooms)and were extremely accomodating! The Room was very comfortable and clean. We had a mini fridge in our room was a big plus. The location of the hotel is nice because it is in a quiet area and not near all the busy nightlife (which is great when you get in from a long day of sight seeing!)The hotel is one block away from the Presidio Park and a few blocks from the Palace of Fine Arts.

the travelodge presidio had minimal parking (although the manager allowed us to park in a restricted space since it was the only available space). the room was tiny, as expected, old and not clean bathroom. the ac was adequate, on an unusually hot san francisco stay. the location is great for visitors who want to spend time in the marina

The hotel wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. Parking was limited but luckily, we always got a parking spot and the parking was free! There is parking on the street but you would have to move it at a certain time. The food places around the hotel were limited. The nearest attraction was the SF Exploratorium. It's within walking distance but you need to cross a busy street. The hotel served some cereal and packaged danishes and instant oatmeal. They had no place or seats to eat inside so you have to take whatever you can back to your room. In the room, you have a coffee maker and a refrigerator but no microwave. The best part of the hotel was that it was pretty inexpensive compared to a lot of SF hotels.

This is a reasonably priced motel in a fairly convenient location. We walked to Fisherman's Wharf and it is an even easier walk to Fort Mason. The room was clean and the rate was good.
