So what is not to like about this place. The room was very comfortable, modern, the bathroom spotlessly clean, the WiFi fast and free. I never watch TV so never turned it on. The free breakfast was even better than adequate with a delicious frittata as one of the choices. The coffee was (as expected) awful, the bread-choices somewhat limited.... More

Really nice for the price and location! Has a microwave, fridge, large new TV, make up table, iron, ironing board. Very clean and lovely decor. Comfy bed and lovely neighborhood. Really a pleasant surprise since my friend is at La Quinta which charges more and looks a lot worse.

We recently flew through San Francisco on our way to Hawaii and spent one night at The Dylan at SFO. We called the hotel when we arrived at SFO Airport and the shuttle arrived shortly thereafter to pick us up. The front desk was very gracious and accommodating, and the rooms were spacious and clean. We walked to a pub... More

The outside isn't much to look at but this was a good, comfortable hotel. Service very friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious, beds were comfortable with good pillows. Great a/c, a bit bright in the morning. Decent coffee in the rooms but no fridge. Breakfast was good - lots of options (hot and cold). Could have used better coffee though.... More

As mentioned by other reviewers, this is an upgraded motel. It says it's a Hotel now, but still looks like a motel on the outside. I give it 5 stars not because it's actually a 5 star hotel, but because they did a really nice job with the updates, breakfast, location, etc. As I just mentioned, they really did a... More

Front desk customer service was surprisingly cold when we checked in. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The walls were thin so we could hear our neighbors, but pretty good insulation from street noise. The cost was marginally cheaper than other hotels in the area. I would probably pay a few dollars more to stay somewhere else... More

Small former "motel". With charming staff, clean, clean, clean facilities. Community breakfast was comprehensive and really welcomed us. Not the Ritz but safe and adequate and Clean! Had to call the shuttle and a little wait. Close to SFO for travelers

The Dylan is a great hotel - clean, comfortable rooms, nice breakfast, very convenient location near BART, and 24 hour airport shuttle. We stayed there 2 nights after arriving in SF and liked it so much we stayed there again the night before we left. We would definitely stay there again the next time we are in the area.

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
