The hotel is really close the SFO airport and there is a free drive to the airport!. The hotel staff was extremely polite and helpful! The spa was really relaxing! There was a huge indoor jacuzzi and a sauna. The room was quite small but cozy. The beds were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept at and was... More

I stayed at Villa Montes the night I arrived and again the night I departed from San Fransisco. I wasn't expecting a lot based on price and location, but I was really impressed! The rooms were very modern and well done. The whole place was spotless, and the staff was excellent. The only issue I had was the driver who... More

For the price paid, this was a surprisingly nice little hotel, a few minutes away from SFO. Wifi worked well in the rooms. Parking was free. I had a room facing away from the main street, so no trouble with noise. Only complaint is that the room heating/cooling system blew directly onto the bed with no way to adjust the... More

It's a lovely hotel, but we were assigned one of the teensy King rooms. The room is pretty and stylish but really small! Not enough room to put in a bedside table on one side of the bed. Upon seeing the room, we went back downstairs and asked to be moved, only to be told there weren't any other King... More

We stayed here our last night in San Francisco to facilitate an easy morning departure. The place exceeded expectations. It is very clean, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They even served complementary wine by the fireplace in the lobby! The bed was comfortable and the cab service to the airport caps off all the perks. We will stay here... More

Beautiful hotel! If you judged by the outside you would probably pass this by but step inside and it's a whole different story. The front desk staff is very nice. If you're on the second floor I recommend taking the stairs, it's faster than the elevator. The room was very spacious and clean. The bar area in my room made... More

This place is located very close to SFO airport so it's a good choice for an overnight crash before an early morning flight. If you arrive early enough (before 6pm) the hotel offers free coffee, cookies and a glass of wine in the lobby every evening at 6pm. Pros: Clean room, bathroom provides good selection of amenities (shower cap, mouthwash,... More

I found this hotel because I was traveling from San Jose to San Francisco and wanted something nice but not super expensive. The Villa Montes Hotel fit the bill perfectly. We arrived at about 9 p.m. and the lady at the check in desk was very nice and the cookies were a plus. Parking was underground and free! (one of... More

Stayed here one night between flights. PROS: free taxi pick-up/drop-off at airport (although the taxi took 25 minutes to arrive after we called the hotel); had a suite which provided lots of room; robes included in room; the bed / bed linens were really nice; and the front desk person was quite friendly (although they didn't have record of us...
