Can't beat the location of this hotel if you're looking for something close to SFO. The rooms are clean. The breakfast in the morning is good even though the breakfast room is small and gets crowded very easily. There is plenty of seating in the lobby, which was great. We used the hotel as home base for some sight-seeing before... More

We decided to stay outside of San Francisco to save a little bit of money on hotel rooms. This was perfect for our family. My husband is in a wheel chair, so a roll in shower is a must for us. We arrived about 3pm, checked in and my teenage boys accidentally locked the only set of keys in the... More

We booked a 2 night stay here. Once we checked in and got to the room we were very disappointed. First off the hallway smelled like cigarette smoke and so did our room. A bed pillow and a bath towel were stained. My husband and I as well as our kids were really disappointed. We got online and started looking... More

The bathroom and room were very clean and updated. The room had plenty out outlets for all of our electronics. Breakfast was good. Wi-fi was slow. We went into San Francisco everyday, expect about an hour to get to your destination and to park.

We were booked into this hotel by our travel agent for an overnight stay in transit to Honolulu the next day. We checked-in in the dark and left the hotel very early the next morning, and so did not have much opportunity to enjoy any of its facilities. All I can say is that the room we stayed in was... More

This is a great hotel! I stay in IHG hotels all around the world and this has to be one of the best Holiday Inn Express hotels.

The view from the hotel of the bay is spectacular. I requested a bay side view at check in but they were sold out.

The pro's are this is close to the airport if you need a layover, and it was reasonably clean. I was annoyed how noisy the property is though. You can hear every bodily function from the rooms on either side and people talking from across the hall. Our room had a doorbell that unsupervised kids kept ringing, it decided to... More

What's not to like? The location is wonderful, in a quiet area on the water, looking across at the airport runway. Lots of restaurants close by. The lobby is spacious and the service is excellent. Shuttle comes every half hour and the drivers are very helpful. The room we had was clean, with comfortable beds, and a great bay view.... More
