Tess and Fran are very friendly staffs. They always carry their smile when helping customers checking in. Hotel's lobby is very accommodating and I like the ambience. The room is very clean and smells good too. The free breakfast is not the best but tastes good and good enough to satisfy your craving for morning.

I am a regular Holiday Inn patron (was) But this Holiday Inn and their staff are by far the worst Hotel I have ever seen. Beware!! They held my credit card and charged $600 worth of charges to my account after I checked out. I also contracted the Norovirus from this facility, disgusting. I have called the location everyday for... More

The Holiday Inn Express SFO North is a one-hundred percent smoke free building. As such, the hotel does charge guests who violate the policy a fee of $375.00 in order to have the room professionally returned to a smoke-free condition. This includes shampooing the carpets, dry cleaning the drapes, washing the walls, deep cleaning all fabrics, and taking the room... More

The staff at this place is very friendly and competent. The location is very convenient for folks visiting the SF area. The rooms are clean and have the extras (fridge, safe) that make a stay comfortable.

We arrived at this hotel at the beginning of a long trip from San Francisco to Stanford University, Yosemite, Las Vegas, and then finally the Grand Canyon. The airport shuttle service that the hotel provides is very nice because it brought us to the hotel from the airport and allowed us to take the shuttle the next morning to the... More

I’ve been staying at Holiday Inns a lot recently because they’ve consistently been very nice at a reasonable price. While it was still an OK stay it was easily the worst experience I’ve had at a Holiday Inn brand hotel in the past 15 years. The biggest issue was the unpleasant smells in my room; I use the plural because... More

As an employee I was looking to find the best rate so stayed at the hotel. Now although was 30 minutes drive to downtown it was a straight highway and easy to find. The hotel was so much better than I imagined and I wish we had had more time to enjoy the hotel more. The rooms were very large... More

We generally stay at Hilton or Marriott, but we just needed one night at a place with park and fly by the airport. I was very pleasantly surprised at the level of service and comfort. Speedy fast wifi. Hallway smelled like paint. Room a bit musty.

We were looking for something clean and up to date and that is what we got. This hotel looks like it has been recently remodeled and the rooms were spotless. Great jobs by the cleaning staff, front desk staff and the people who cooked the breakfasts that were provided free of charge. In fact the breakfasts far exceeded our expectations... More

I have an injury which makes it difficult to sleep comfortably without pain but this Holiday Inn Express mattress made it possible - perfect firmess not too hard or soft, no pressure points, and you can rest in one position for hours, so good Im buying one for myself. Thank you Holiday Inn Express for such an incredibly comfortable stay!

I read the reviews before staying here about the bad water pressure, slow WiFi and shuttle service issues. I did not experience any of these things, so hopefully they were isolated issues. In my experience, the shuttle service driver was friendly, helpful and picked me up at the airport exactly where I was told to wait. The front service staff... More
