If you've ever stayed at an airport hotel, it's noisy. But the location is the reason we stayed here. The rooms were impeccably clean, the furnishings were modern and functional. Everything here was new and updated included the carpeting, comforters and towels. The beds were even comfortable. I can't complain about the noise because it's an airport hotel. If you've... More

The Dylan is clean, in a quiet,safe area, has easy access to both CalTrain & BART, and a pharmacy & grocery store across the street. The airport shuttle was prompt and convienent. This is a boutique property which did not meet all expectations: (1) TV remote didn't work and a committment by the desk clerk to bring a new one... More

The Dylan at SFO is a good hotel, located by the aiport and 2 minutes walk from the BART Station. It's very easy to get to SFO downtown, less than 30 minutes. The room was clean, great bed and nice bathroom. If you are looking for an affordable place to stay by the aiport, than I totally recommend it.

When looking for a hotel in S.Francisco, I sorted by customer ratings. The Dylan received the highest rating in the price range we were looking for. Following our stay, I know why. From the outside, first impression you think, "oh no" a budget hotel. The lobby is nothing special, nor the dining room. Once you enter your room, you revise... More

Dylan is a lovely little hotel. The rooms are clean & comfortable; breakfast plentiful & delicious; staff friendly & accommodating; and the cost reasonable. Location also convenient for airport or SF.

Clean,comfortable,great decor and in a nice area. The breakfast was great, they won us over with the Nutella!! Above all friendly management. We have been to many hotels around the area and this has won our coming back decision, come to the Dylan SFO!

This used to be a Travelodge. I guess someone bought it and spiffed up the rooms. The furnishings and fixtures are all very nice, however, the walls are still thin and the plumbing is still LOUD, so anytime my neighbors moved around or ran water, it would disrupt my ability to sleep. Usually in hotel rooms I'll run the HVAC... More

We had a good stay here. It is cuter than expected. Very close to BART and CalTrain, a block or so. They offer a free airport shuttle, which was great, it took about 10 minutes. It seems like it is a converted TravelLodge motel from the 70s, but they've done a good job. It has a cute little outside patio... More

The rooms was clean and had a comfortable bed. You can park the car for up to 10 days and they have a shuttle to the airport which was nice But it stops there. The property is not much to look at from the outside. The guy at the front desk was a little rude. He seems annoyed that he... More

We first stayed here eight years ago (then the Travellodge?) and it has got even better. If. like us, you've flown long haul, you don't have a car, and want a mid-priced place in SF, the Dylan is for you. We had four days here en route to Florida. To sum up: Pro: * king size room with microwave was... More

We thank this guest for taking the time to write such a nice review of our hotel. We are extremely glad that this guest enjoyed our newly remodeled rooms and our great location. However, we did want to clarify one point. As we are located within a 3 minute walk to the BART and Caltrain station, all of the rooms... More
