Travelodge Golden Gate San Francisco Reviews
Well located and cozy May 30, 2008
A real little find, the Golden Gate is family-run, which gives it a cozy and personal feel. You’ll probably be welcomed (and slobbered upon!) enthusiastically by the young Labrador pup, and the owners of the hotel will make you feel just as welcome (only without the slobbering, haha!).
The hotel is located a short walk (a couple of minutes) from the entrance gate to Chinatown and reasonable walking distance to the Union Square area and its shopping, so an excellent location.
Parking is a real problem in San Francisco so another good point is that there’s a parking garage (at reduced prices, $20,- p.d. for hotel guests) right opposite the hotel.
The hotel is located in a four-story renovated Edwardian building, furnished in lovely wicker furniture and decorated with antiques and mementoes. Be sure to have a look at the pictures of ‘old San Francisco’ in the hallways and the ‘interesting’ old-fashioned elevator! The hotel has a very European feel to it and reminded me of the time we used to live in Holland. Rooms are not large but furnished nicely with soft and comfy bedding, flowerpots in the windows.
During your stay you’ll probably be visited once or twice by Pip, the ginger manx (tailless) house(‘hotel’)cat. He insisted on sitting in the only chair in our room and looking out of the window, mewling at the pigeons outside and then taking a drink from the faucet! Quite a character.
Most rooms have no en-suite bathroom and we were a bit hesitant about this at first (especially since we’d come from a couple of day’s camping and really wanted a long hot shower!), but I have to say: no problem! The bathroom is at the end of the hallway, shared with 4 other rooms but it is kept scrupulously clean. There are a couple of rooms with en-suite bathrooms available. In addition, every room has a sink with ample toiletries (with Pip-inspired logo!) and towels.
A good breakfast is included in the room-rate, with coffee, fresh OJ and delicious croissants.
All in all, I’d heartily recommend staying at the Golden Gate, for the location and the nice service and amenities, it is quite reasonably priced, too, at $95,- a day (w/o tax), especially for an expensive city such as San Francisco!
