Most of the recent reviews panned this place but it was much better, and more professional, than we had been led to believe. The public areas were nice, the room was quiet and clean, and the staff were very helpful. It was a typical Holiday Inn business type hotel.

2 out of the 3 days we attempted a shower, there was no hot water. I called and the hotel staff the first day and they said they would send someone up? Up? To my room? Why? The hot water heater does NOT reside in my room? We decided to leave after waiting for some time, unshowered, yay. Refrigerator Door... More

I let my company book my accommodations for a function we were having nearby. Might not have been my best move ever. Way below average for cleanliness. The next time somebody attempts to clean the grout in the bathroom will be the first time it has been cleaned. Greeted by over an inch of water in the tub due to... More

We stayed at this location while on our trip to Napa after just landing at SFO. The hotel is extremely conveniently located by the airport. We checked into the room and had a laundry list of issues that were wrong with a number of things. I have stayed here before and although it was not great before it has certainly... More

The service was great, getting checked in and out. I got a room that smells like death, It literally reeks of cigarette. It is like someone smoked an entire carton and it was never cleaned for years. Once you turn on the ventilation in the room and it gets a lot better. Its literally an airport hotel there isn't anything... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn near the international Airport for 4 nights. The service was very professional and all of the hotel staff were extremely helpful when we had questions. The room was fine although the bathroom was a little cramped. The hotel is not updated, but for the price we were happy with it. The hotel restaurant is... More

This hotel is fairly standard and had the mod cons like a work desk, coffee maker , flatscreen TV and upgrades like marble bathroom sink. The room's decor with red and dark wood was from the 1990s, although the lounge area on the 1st floor was airy and bright. Downstairs is Houlihan's sports bar which again felt like the 1990s...

The Holiday Inn San Francisco Airport it was for a work trip recently as the couple of days we were in town coincided with a baseball game and a large conference resulting in exhorbitant accomodation prices in the city centre. Coming in after a weekend at Napa Valley, the pylons surrounding the hotel didn't make a good first impression. However,... More

I booked the hotel through Priceline and received what I thought was a very decent price for this type of hotel in this area.
