I arrived at the airport at night, so I could get to the hotel in a few minutes. The room was clean, but the bathroom was old. The staff is very friendly, they helped me even on planning my route. If you need a stay for one night and go to San Francisco by plane, then I recommend this hotel.... More

I stayed in this hotel for a business meeting. Although my handicapped accessible room had a lowered closet rod it had a standard tub. The morning after I arrived I went to the sink and brown water and sediment poured out. I contacted the hotel and attended my meeting. At our am break we discovered the ladies' room was out... More

I arrived late and this was very close to the airport. There weren't a lot of parking spots available but it was well lit. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Even though it was close to the airport, it was quiet. I was expecting to pay for parking, but it wasn't on my bill when I checked out. The hotel... More

This hotel is totally overpriced and is horribly dirtyand probably the worst Holiday Inn I have ever used. There was mildew in the shower and on the walls and ceiling. Some of the grommets on the shower curtain were ripped and the shower curtain had burn holes. (It was a non-smoking room). The decor looks like it is from the... More

Okay it is an airport hotel and it is in San Francisco, so you are expecting to pay, however the facilities just do not live up to the expectations. Yes it is clean, yes it is close to the airport, yes check in was quick however it needs an UPDATE.

As far as airport hotels go, this one is clean and generally ok. They take advantage of their position and charge exorbitant rates for their rooms and for anything they possibly can charge extra for. We asked for a later checkout and were told we could stay an extra 2 hours for $175 (50% of their rack rate) - we... More

Last minute decision to go away for our anniversary. Arrived late but was greeted politely and professionally by the friendly lady at the front desk. Room was nice and quiet and relaxing. Went down to the restaurant where the service could have been a little better - had to wait for one of the three bartenders to serve us. Next... More

Let's start with the positive. The room itself was nice. Nothing overly special - but nice. The beds were comfortable. Pricing was confusing. The room was booked by my niece; so I wasn't involved. But the pricing was all over the map. We stayed for 5 days. For our Wednesday night stay we were charged $276 plus the proverbial taxes... More

we arrived very late/ early morning after a very long drive. Hotel staff was very polite and professional. Room was nice, bed was very comfortable. He was knowledgeable when I asked him how to get to and how long it would take to get to said venue. Would go back
