We travel and stay in a fair number of holiday in express accommodations. We especially like complementary breakfast including the cinnamon rolls. We selected this location for breakfast as well as the park and fly option, for a reasonable additional fee. This allowed us to leave our vehicle and take A complimentary shuttle to SFO. We called in advance to... More

I stayed for two nights for a business trip. The hotel is near SFO, which was the main driver to stay there. It is close to 101 and with good access to 280, which makes it accessible to bay area and Silicon Valley. In addition, it is close enough to SF to explore the area in the evenings. My king... More

Sad location north of the airport next door to a McDonalds. Room was clean & had a mini fridge & microwave. Sheets were scratchy. Pillows were lumpy. No real restaurant within walking distance. Costco down the street. Standard breakfast (pastries, toast/bagel, yogurt, cereals, turkey bacon). Pricy for what you get & where it is.

I stayed at this location because I used my United miles to get a free room. I thought it would be a decent place. The pros are that the front desk staff are friendly and the hotel is clean. The cons are that the lobby smelled like garbage and there were gnats in the room. The pillows were old and... More

We stayed here due to the convenience of the airport shuttle which we used to access BART to get in to the city each day. The hotel is clean, and the staff was absolutely first rate. They were very helpful. We thought the breakfast was good, & we had no issues with them running out of food during our stay.... More

Whenever we went to SF, we stayed at this hotel which used to be a bargain. This time we were a bit disappointed. The bathtub was well used with stain. The towels were off white. They always managed to run out of breakfast items. First, English tea, then banana, followed with bacon and 2% milk. Parking used to be free... More

This Holiday Inn Express is very clean and while we were there people always seemed to be cleaning .All the staff are very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is quite basic and on the negative side if you arrive at this hotel at and need food, it isn't ideal for that. We had a car and were able to drive... More

It is right off the highway. 1 hour 45 min. to Monterey by car. 20 min to get right to downtown San Fran. Less than 2 miles from the airport, but no... More

Minutes away from the airport SFO by shuttle that runs every 20 mins. & conveniently stops at each terminal within about 10 mins or so. Make sure you get the Holiday Inn Express shuttle which is different from the shuttle serving the nearby Holiday Inn. Strange mixture of up & down market. Rooms are quite pricey at 200-300 USD but...
