The property itself is old but it appeared to be recently renovated so the room itself was okay. Check in could be improved as it took a while to get my key even though it was 1am. Wifi was okay and included in the rate. They charge $10 a night for parking but the parking lot is not gated or... More

We live in the Central Valley so flying out of a Bay Area airport is easiest if we spend the night before and park for the week or whatever at the hotel. This place filled the bill well. Just after our checkin I got a text from an employee who asked me to text her if I had any needs... More

Wifi not free in the rooms. Only at lobby. Car parking is not free. Renovation time had come. But still clean tidy and very good location. I have stayed here last year for a week. This year one day only. Price is fluctuating. If you can get it around 65, 75 band great deal.

I stayed at this Holiday Inn on January 13th, 2016. Well stayed would be a broad term, I was only in the room for a couple of hours. I travel 2-3 times per month for work and stay in a variety of hotels. The first thing I typically do is check the bed for bed bugs. Upon checking the bed... More

I am semi frequent travel and stay at the Express quite a bit. If you are driving to this location be aware that the Express is not this hotel. And it is located 2 blocks south. This threw me off and I saw a flight crew make the same mistake too. I had thought that the Express would be the... More

I work under the ihg brand at another hi express and have never experienced such shady behavior. I called immediately after I left because I had left my Nixon watch in the room. They reassured me they had it and would send it to me being that I don't make it to the bay area all that much. It never... More

Great parking package for extended trips. Have used many times and always receive fantastic service. All staff were smiling through out our stay and were very approachable. Will use again but bathrooms are showing their age and could do with upgrading.

Comfortable Holiday Inn with no surprises. Friendly staff and a good location if you arrived to SFO late or are departing early. Holiday Inn does not offer free breakfast or concierge lounge for frequent travelers so their might be a better deal close by but overall this was a decent hotel that served the purpose of a good night's sleep...

It's a Holiday Inn (one of the better ones) right near the SF airport, so not much that at needs to be said. But the woman at the e front desk who checked us in was GREAT. She straightened out a problem with our reservation that would normally have been fatal or expensive, and she did it with great aplomb... More

This is an old property which was relatively recently (as of December, 2015) halfheartedly updated. While the paint was literally pealing off of several surfaces in the room, the carpet was seriously worn, and the bathtub cracked and missing a drain plug, the TV (and accompanying console with desk and AV inputs) was very modern and updated. Similarly, the room's... More
