Hi. What is the approx. distance from the Embarcardero area hotels to Fisherman's Wharf? I am looking for an inexpensive hotel (<$150) for a one night stay at the end of our 9 night, CA central coast drive trip. I am considering the Columbus Motor Inn (1075 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133) near Fisherman's Wharf, due to the good reviews and free parking. However, I have been reading in the forum that many of the local experts believe the Embarcardero area to be nicer. My husband and I are both quite physically fit and able to walk a 4 to 5 mile round trip. We will still have our rental car for this final night, but we would rather walk a bit and be able to do a mini walking tour, rather than struggle to find parking. Also, our flight leaves SFO at 10:30 a.m. the next a.m. What is the "typical" amount of time required to drive from Embarcardero/Fisherman's Wharf to SFO? I imagine that we would need to depart for the airport by no later than 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. to allow for traffic and return of the rental car? Thank you in advance for any advice you provide.
