It was unclear to me when I booked that this is a motel, not a hotel. When I'm traveling alone that makes me nervous and I wouldn't have booked it had I known that. Yes, this is very conveniently located to the Millbrae train station but that also means that you hear trains during the night and they shake your... More

When you get there the building is not different from any three star motel chain. But when you get to your room it is another story. All renovated, large rooms, new carpet. New beds nice and modern furniture. Great bathroom with a wonderful shower and good linens. If you need to stay by SFO and do not want to spend... More

I had a 2 day stopover in SFO and didn't want the trouble of lugging my luggage to the city, so decided to stay at The Dylan. The rooms are nice and comfortable. I chose this hotel due to its proximity to the Bart (Milbrae), which gets me to the city in about 40mins or less. Very convenient and great... More

We chose this hotel because of the free shuttle to the airport. It met that expectation and others. The hotel is newly renovated and it shows. A lot of thought and care went into this hotel. While the exterior still has remnants of the old travelodge, the interior does not. Each piece was chosen to make the room relaxing. The... More

We stayed at the Dylan to break up a long trip from Boston to Maui. We got in very late but their shuttle ran 7/24. We had planned to get in early enough to go into San Francisco. You can easily walk to the BART station from the Dylan. Our flight was so late we couldn't go into San Francisco... More

This hotel was perfect for an overnight stop-over and easy access into San Francisco. Inside the hotel, the rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. Although the exterior resembles more of a Motel then a Hotel, I had no real issues staying here. The hotel location is convenient to SFO and offers a free shuttle to and from the airport, (remember... More

Great little non-chain motel a couple miles from SFO. Had many little touches of elegance. Decided to try it, kind of on a whim, and was glad I did. I definitely will go back. Clean and quiet. Easy parking.

We stayed here overnight while on route from Newark to Kauai. I originally had a room at a different hotel booked on points, but due to a promotion from Orbitz during Black Friday, I was able to get a room here for only $39 + tax (instead of $139 + tax), so I chose this instead. I will say that... More

I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to SF airport. Booking.com came up with this hotel with a high rating so I went for it. The guys that di the makeover on this place did a great job. It is comfortable, convenient and quite reasonably priced. The rooms have all the modern attributes of a hotel room. This... More

I believe when you have a good experience or a good encounter somewhere, those that made it possible should be congratulated and promoted and rewarded for their efforts. I actually stayed here in July 2012 as the first stop on part of a road trip from San Francisco to Laguna Seca to LA and finally Las Vegas. Flying from Belfast... More
