There is usually only one major reason someone checks in at an over-priced airport hotel: reliable (and secure) access to the airport. Though the San Mateo SFO Airport Hotel is is physically near the airport, it is not in a convenient location. Many other hotels in the area are within walking distance to restaurants, closer to BART or Caltrain, or... More

We stayed at the San Mateo SFO Airport Hotel after missing our flight because of weather delays. We called late in the afternoon and booked the hotel sight-unseen. (Many we had called were already booked.) We caught the hotel shuttle and got to the hotel fairly quickly. It was actually quite nice, reasonably priced, and next door to a Holiday... More

Best priced but book early with breakfast. Shuttle can bring you to the rentals, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit to the airport and anywhere in downtown and ajoining suburbs quickly. BART accepts credit cards but bring cash too.

This is an older facility that offers an inexpensive place to stay for people traveling out of SFO. The complimentary buffet and friendly staff were an unexpected plus. The location is adjacent to the Bayshore freeway in a working class area, but felt secure.

I was in SF for business and I needed a place close to the airport to spend a couple of nights before an early flight. This hotel is close to the airport, has a good price, is clean and the breakfast is not bad. It was a pleasant stay, apart from the fact that the wifi comes and goes. One... More

I stayed here as part of my visit to Frisco. The price was just right for a person who has a car available. I was commuting in and out of the city, but the price compensated for that. The breakfast was good. Very close to the airport.

Very convinient if you arrive SF after a long haul flight or if you have get up for an early flight. The hotel is a bit outdated but clean. The highway is nearby but did not really causing any problems with regards of sleeping. The aircon unit is from the last century and very loud would not stay there in... More

Since its only about a 15 minute drive from the airport, this is a perfect hotel for anyone flying out of SFO. I stayed here for one night as my wife was flying out the next morning and it was perfect. The room was nice and the location was good too. There aren't many restaurants nearby, we had to hunt...

I stayed here in July and gave the front desk $200 deposit when I check in. But they refused to give the deposit back to me when I check out. What is worse is they kept lying to me about why they can't give my deposit back, the excuses I have heard are "the manager is not here", "We will... More

I stayed one night arriving from overseas and a continuing flight the next morning. It took a long time and a couple of calls to get the shuttle, but when it finally arrived it was all smooth from then on. Quick and friendly check-in. Spacious room, with a small kitchen, coffee making facilities. Comfortable bed. I had breakfast in the... More
