We used the shuttle to and from the airport which was very good and quick. The staff at the hotel were very helpfull and friendly. The room was large and a very comfortable bed. The buffet breakfast was fine and everything was clean. The only problem at night was the only resturant within walking distance was the Macdonalds next door.

The hotel is very near the airport and they provide shuttle to and from SFO International. The hotel staff are courteous and very accommodating. A typical self-served breakfast at the lobby cafeteria provides variety of choices...and I love the pancakes! Laundry is not a problem because they have two machines available. For budget conscious traveler who would like to do... More

This is purely our experience & what we went through with this particular hotel. Management refused to change our booking after we incorrectly chose the wrong Holiday Inn Express from the web site which was very confusing. Even though we picked up "OUR" mistake within minutes after payment was processed we experienced red tape as soon as we spoke to... More

We stayed here for our trip to visit San Francisco and napa. We were pleasantly surprised with the rate compared to staying downtown with parking downtown 50/60 dollars a night. I would suggest renting a car if you're staying here though it's about 20 minutes from all of the sightseeing. We decided to stay a second night here instead of... More

Now that my credit card reversal has been completed by AmEx, I feel able to describe my experience with this hotel. I booked a same day reservation at a very nice rate, received my confirmation letter and went on with my day. When I arrived at the hotel to check in, the front desk associate (who was incredibly rude), told... More

Unless you are a walking traveler be prepared to pay ten dollars to park your car in their parking lot -even if you stay for the night at their hotel. The price of the hotel room was significantly greater than the quality of the room. Not to demean Comfort Inn, but the room was in same quality range but at... More

We stayed there the other night on our way back from San Francisco to London as it was conveniently close to the airport. We checked and were greeted by very friendly, cheerful and helpful staff ( the three Ms) who put us in an upstairs room overlooking San Francisco Bay and the southern landing approach. The good news is that... More

While researching parking options for a 7 day cruise out of San Francisco I discovered this Park, Sleep, Fly hotel to be the most economical option. Not having stayed at a Holiday Inn in many years (and with the cost being so reasonable for a one night stay that included up up to 9 nights parking) I wasn't expecting much.... More
