“Nice place to arrive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2008

Perfect for arriving to SF cause it's very near to the airport. The bedrooms are very clean. It also has a wonderful dinner in the motel.

My wife had to catch an early flight from SFO to Miami and we decided to stay at an inexpensive hotel close to the airport the night before. The Red Roof Inn was an excellent choice as we had our little dog with us and this is a pet friendly motel. We were very happy to find the room clean, quiet, and comfortable. We were also pleased that a free shuttle to the airport was available every 20 minutes, and was punctual for our stay!
We would definitely stay here again.

It was reasonable for what it was. Close to the airport and quiet at night. I am not sure whether I got a cold or the room was dusty I had hay fever all nite! The room reminded me a bit of My Name is Earl - Earl's room with Randy type of room

This is one of the lower end options at SFO. I was booked here through United when we didn't make a connection. We (with a 10 year old) waited for 45 minutes for the shuttle huddled at SFO after midnight in the wind. The hotel has exterior corridors, which means one has to wander the halls open to the public. There were men lurking around the stairs in the parking lot while we were there. We went through the elevator. The corridors have bright lights, that shine in the rooms, around the curtains. The beds had questionable bedspreads, with a thin blanket. Neither, the sort of thing that is laundered between guests. We had breakfast at the cafe, which was no cheaper than the airport, but very good. I have stayed at SFO many many times (Westin, Doubletree, Sofitel, Crowne Plaza, Sheraton 4 points, Clarion etc.) and would recommend Hotelres.com (specifically for San Francisco) for finding good rates to better hotels. Hotwire is also very good at SFO, as is Priceline. There is no reason to stay at the Red Roof Inn, when for the same money one can do better for the same price or less.

  • Liked — Nothing
  • Disliked — Exterior doors, terrible linens, bright lights outside room, and late shuttle

I stayed in this hotel even though I had all my appointments in downtown San Francisco,the reason being very good connections to the town by BART and substantial savings on daily rates as compared to hotels in San Francisco.
This hotel lived up to all the expectations. Very friendly staff, punctual shuttle service to the airport and clean rooms added to the comfort. I would definitely stay here again.

Having missed our flight to the East Coast, the airline offered this hotel with a voucher and I was very suprised and happy with things overall. The room was newly redecorated and clean and very nice. The shuttle was great and the dinner connected to the hotel offered the best breakfast I have had in years.

We were looking for a nicely priced hotel closed to San Francisco airport for just one night. Although it's a bit far if you're planning to visit San Francisco, we took advantage of the hotel shuttle to go to the airport and we caught the BART to go to the city. On the other end, since we wanted to catch an early flight back home, it made more sense to stay close to the airport. We were pleasantly surprised by the newly renovated rooms, with very comfortable beds and plenty of drawer space. Although there's no closet, there's an open area that has a railing with hangers. It had a nice pool, but we were not able to enjoy it. The reception area was clean and the staff was very friendly. They had an automatic coffee/latte/hot chocolate machine in the front desk that was very convinient as well. I don't usually expect a Red Roof Inn to be a place I would recommend, but without any doubt, this particular location was very desirable and would defintely do it again.-

  • Liked — Comfort and clealiness
  • Disliked — The shuttle driver to/from airport was not a safe driver
