After a horrendous travel experience with United Airlines, we ended up at this hotel during unexpected overnight stay while in transit from Hawaii to Vancouver, Canada. We are frequent travelers so a bit jaded when it comes to hotels but we were pleasantly surprised. Despite a deluge of travelers in the same circumstances, staff checked everyone in efficiently with a... More

Wow! Joey welcomed us and treated us like dear friends. He made some exceptional efforts to make certain we were comfortable and included other eager and helpful staff members in that quest. The rooms are clean and well appointed. There is clear evidence that this venue is tattered. When first in the room, the window unit A/C would not work.... More

After enduring the worst customer/travel experience from United airlines I checked in at the Holiday Inn at midnight, It was refreshing to be met with such good hospitality and someone who was able to help me and make me feel welcome. The rooms were standard, but everything I needed for an airport overnight was provided. The on site restaurant is... More

I stay in hotels 300+ nights yearly. I wanted to leave after seeing the room, but the cancellation policy prohibited me from doing so. I am an ING member and I have never seen a Holiday Inn in this condition. Peeling paint in the bathroom, an a/c unit that does not work and furniture that was grubby. Bypass this one.

We had an event at Candlestick Park and this hotel was very convenient for us. It was great to have the restaurant and bar open every night when we got back to relax and have some decent food. The front desk staff was very helpful in getting some group billing issues taken care of. The decor is a bit old... More

It's a hotel close to the airport...For that, it has what you need including a pretty good restaurant attached. Comfortable, clean, and a good price for what you get (well, considering it's San Francisco and it's close to the airport). I didn't have much interaction with staff so not much to say there. My only complaint is the internet! It... More
