Price was reasonable. room was clean. The room was not big like some of the reviews indicate but OK. Breakfast was included even though its nothing special but give everyone a good start in the morning. it's quite far away from all the actions are. About 20 min. walk from the Fisherman's Wharf. Not far away if by car or not hilly but it's SF, hills are everywhere! We stayed on the 3rd floor, every morning shortly before 7, we could hear chairs moving around, you couldn't really sleep in if you wanted to. The noise was from the breakfast room on the 1/F. It was very annoying!
It is a very clean and bright hotel, nicely decorated for Christmas. Sound proof walls. Cozy room. Good free breakfast. One of the cheapest decent 3 star hotels in SF. Free WiFi. The parking garage experience was AWFUL. very narrow and low ceilings, with many poles in the way that made it very hard to maneuver. I drove a friend's Ford Explorer which ended up getting multiple dents and scratches from hitting the poles to avoid hitting other cars. If you have a van or truck, DO NOT sTAY HERE. The extra money I saved by staying here ended up costing $500+ in damage repairs. Also, the night staff at the hotel was rude and unhelpful.
Comfortable stay. Lovely staff. Enjoyable full, free breakfast. No black out curtains in the room.
Comfort Inn By the Bay was close enough to the things that we were looking for that we were able to walk from place to place for much of our trip. The staff was very friendly and the hotel felt safe and cozy. Even after we checked out, there was a place for us to safely leave our luggage until we actually left the city.
I love the breakfast. Not much I can say bad.
Really great location if you're going to go to Fisherman's Wharf or Ghirardelli Square. Room was pretty good-sized. The woman at the front desk lied to us when we checked in and told us she couldn't take our travel visa because it was against company policy. When we checked out in the morning, another woman told us that she couldn't take it because our bank would overcharge us and she was just protecting us (which was not even close to the story the woman told us the night before). She insisted on taking another card, even after we tried to explain that the reason we had the travel card was to protect ourselves and keep from getting charged ridiculous fees by our bank. Also, when we were getting ready in the morning a woman from housekeeping started banging on the door, and then tried to open it. When she saw us in the room (a full two hours before check-out) she said "Oh, you're still in here. Well, when are you leaving?" Not "Gosh, I'm so sorry!" For the outrageous cost of this room I expected better service. Since my partner and I had to pay a bunch of ridiculous fees because they wouldn't accept our bank-issued travel credit card, and because they both lied and were completely rude about it, there is absolutely no way I will ever be staying there again.
The room was clean, good view (we could see the Golden Gate Bridge from our 6th floor room). The staff was very friendly. Parking garage spaces were tight but adequate and a good value at $26 per overnight parking. If you are a light sleeper, this place probably won't work for you. It was very noisy, outside and inside. We could hear traffic, sirens, and even people talking outside on the street at all hours. Two homeless people on the sidewalk had a loud argument at 5 a.m. regarding a space they wanted to claim for the day to solicit donations and we could hear them quite well. In the room next to us we could overhear their conversations even though they weren't talking loudly. The walls must be rather thin!
Considering everything around the area is expensive this place wasn't too bad. If all you need is a room in something that looks halfway ok, it will do the job. Nothing flashy but I do give them credit for at least serving sausage, eggs and waffles with the breakfast. Nothing too bad to say except the front desk people being a bit disengaged but they got the job done. No cool extras like gym, pool, etc. Im sure that's to be expected in a crowded city.
Location close to most everything
Breakfast was fine Location was good Parking was too expensive. Elevator was slow, stinky and dirty Wifi was slow
Location was awesome. Staff so very friendly. Traffic noise at night
Clean, comfy, big room, good view, nice beds Slow wifi, pay for parking $26, expensive $300 a night, ugly carpet, pop corn ceiling
The location. It was near everything we wanted to do Didn't have the amenities we asked for (I.e. fridge/microwave)
The staff were really helpful. They let us checkin early and didn't charge us. They were good value for money. However the room was basic and did the job. You would have to eat out as the are no kitchen facilities.
The service No complaints
it`s proximity to the fishermans wharf area and easy access to Van Ness/101 freeway. rooms facing Lombard st. are prone to street noise during peak traffic hours.
Location is very good, close to Fisherman's Wharf and easy access to Cable Car and Streetcar. Neighboring street, Polk Street, has a wide variety of nice restaurants. Good value for the money in central San Francisco. Sound insulation relatively light.
The Travel Lodge was a clean and convenient facility. The staff was wonderful!! None
front desk was very helpful when we couldn't figure out where to park in the garage extra charge for parking. At the rate of the room parking should have been included
The staff was frinedly and helpful There were no in room movies and now swimming pool. The continental breakfast could have been expanded with fruit.
Great staff, very friendly and helpful. You can walk from the hotel to important touristic places.
Great location with parking. Friendly staff. Clean.
value if you just want to put your head down at night, room could be updated , looks kinda old fashioned, but it was suitable for what i needed it for. room could be updated , looks kinda old fashioned, but it was suitable for what i needed it for. walls a little thin, could hear showers from the next room right by the headboards, lots of noise coming from the room above us,
It was what we expected, car park is extra which was not clear from the booking info?
Good location and price. Complimentaly breakfast was less than expected.
The kindness of the people at frontdesk. Checking-in too late (2 pm). I had to wait for two hours for rooms to get clean. Rather poor wireless connection.
Plenty of parking, comfortable bed, good shower Refrigerator did not work
Clean, cheap and parking is included No a/c and noisy (both traffic and residents)
Good location. For travelers with the car- free parking. Free wi fi access
A good budget motel for a short stay in SF... Small stinky room...
Felt like home when first checked in Felt not important at checking out
decor of the rooms Parking area too small
excellent location, parking available, clean room
The ability to park in a very busy city and the friendliness of the relief managers. The lack of facilities to make anything other than poor quality filter coffee in the room.
Nice, clean room. A bit noisy, but better than I expected. Noise.
Many TV channel availables for free. Nihil
This realy is a great hotel in a great neighbourhood! It was realy cheap for this location, and there was free parking and free wifi. For breakfast you just walk for 5 minutes down the street, and there are several reataurants.
Very pleasant stay, but simple rooms. Owner is very accomodating Be prepared to ask for another room if you prefer non-smoking! The hotel is 'non-smoking' but some of the rooms have a heavy presence of smoke, so be prepared to ask.
centrally located, helpful staff, quiet, updated rooms, free parking
Relatively quiet and efficient. Since my stay was for an overnight business meeting I was looking for something quiet, clean, and easy. The Lombard Inn fit the bill! Nothing jumped off the page other than they need to spruce up the blankets a bit.
Good hotel Traffic noise. Can't help that though. Busy street.
None Poor customer service and lied. I requested a refund, was told by the hotel staff it would be processed, then was charged the full amount. When I called and inquired about the refund, I was later told that "there was nothing he could do" to process the refund his coworker had promised me.
