Stayed one night prior to early morning flight. Very comfortable stay, no noise with window closed even though very close to train and planes. Free Shuttle bus very handy to airport. Places to eat not too far away. Close to Bart Station, would recommend

We stayed 6 nights and Lajos was great. He ensured that we knew how to get to the BART, showed us how to use the schedule, showed us where to eat in the local area, and showed us where to get munchies and drinks. He made the trip great. Everyone at the hotel were great. The rooms were clean, large,... More

My husband and I picked up our kids from the SFO International Airport and this place is just perfect location wise. We rented a 2-Queen beds bedroom and they gave us room in the second floor. It was really neat and clean. The bathroom is not roomy but not small either. The parking lot is free but you have to... More

I needed a nice place for our family vacation. We arrived in San Francisco late and did not want to venture downtown. I happened upon The Dylan, it was a short drive from the airport about $16 for a taxi. Don't count on their shuttle service. The room was very pleasant with nice comfortable beds. They also served an excellent... More

On our last night of vacation we wanted to move from the Hilton on Union Square to someplace closer to the airport. While driving I scanned options & read reviews. We chose the Dylan. It turned out to be a great decision. This smaller, conveniently located to airport hotel gave us the best nights sleep and service of the week.... More

I am not a fan of chains and always prefer locally owned independent hotels. During the current bubble in the Bay Area, hotel rates have gone off the charts and properties with lower prices tend to be really marginal. The Dylan is a great exception. The property was a Travelodge in its former life and the original physical layout remains.... More

I had an overnight layover in San Francisco, so I chose to stay at The Dylan. At first I thought it was going to be some shabby motel close to the airport, but it turns out, it was really nice! The shuttle to and from the airport made the trip so much more convenient, it also helps that it runs... More

We thought this hotel was very nice. We had a large king size bed and a nice size bathroom. We had a balcony with a sliding glass door that faced.......a train station. I new from Tripadvisor that the train station was nearby, but didn't realize it was just across the street. It wasn't a problem. We did hear some trains... More
