Traveling all the way from the East Coast to San Francisco can be exhausting, so I look forward to a smooth, pleasant experience at check-in, good advice on nearby places to eat, and tips for getting around efficiently and safely. The hotel provides a free shuttle round-trip from SFO. It is also less than a 1/4 mile walk to BART. Besides offering convenience, the hotel is staffed by excellent personnel. In particular, desk staff Maria, Monalisa, and Michelle were very helpful. Clarabelle, the breakfast hostess, was pleasant and worked efficiently to ensure the dining area kept clean and well-supplied with fresh breakfast items. Housekeeping did a fine job keeping my room straight and clean. I plan to stay there again on my next business trip to the San Francisco area.

We were very pleased with the accommodations, location and cleanliness of the hotel. The bed was very comfortable, room was clean, nice size refrigerator, the A/C worked great, set up was really nice, and a daily complimentary breakfast. There are two tvs....one in the living room area and one in the bedroom area. The hotel is ideally located in the downtown area of Millbrae and about a mile from the SF airport. There are many restaurants and stores (CVS, Walgrens, Lucky grocery store) within walking distance from the hotel. Directly across the street from the hotel is a very nice farmer's market which is held on Saturdays. One disadvantage: parking in the hotel garage is $8.95/night. This should be complimentary to hotel guests.

We reserved a block of rooms for a family gathering. We wanted a larger area other than our room to visit with each other and play a game in the afternoon. We were allowed to congregate in the eating area where breakfast is normally served. It was very nice and convenient. We agreed to keep the area clean and left it exactly the way it was originally set up. We were extrememly grateful that the hotel personnel allowed us to do this.

Would we return to the Fairfield Inn again? ABSOLUTELY! Thank you for making our stay at the Fairfield Inn a very memorable and satisfying experience!

After a 10 hour flight from the UK, we were picked up by the regular shuttle bus from SFO and arrived at Fairfield Inn and Suites about 10 minutes later. Our room was well appointed, with an ensuite bathroom, a sitting area, and a king bed. We found the hotel very pleasant for an overnighter after a long flight before picking a car up from SFO the next morning. The setting of the hotel is on the main strip of Millbrae, and about 5 min walk from the BART station, from where it is about 30 mins into the centre of San Francisco. We found the staff courteous and helpful, and the shuttle reasonably frequent back to the airport. The hotel supplies a basic continental breakfast which is a mix of hot and cold, and tasty. There's also a really good Vietnamese restaurant about 5 mins away in Millbrae, or local Chinese places if you want an evening meal.

Excellent choice for business or leisure. Easy walking distance to the train station. Great local restaurants are conveniently just accross the hotel. Free breakfast is very decent and offers some variety of choices. The rooms are immaculately clean with a small living room to boot. The hotel staff are nothing but friendly and professional. Noteworthy are Debbie and Maria at the front desk. Everything about this hotel is homey. The only thing that is not good is that parking isnt free.

We've stayed at this location a few times in the past when we visited S.F and it was great. The price keeps going up more and more each year but good thing my hubby was able to get some discounts from through his work but we still paid about $110 per night not including parking. So let me get to the point. The room is nice and clean and the hotel offers free breakfast. A little disappointed that they didn't have a waffle machine and the selection was very limited.
We stayed on the third floor and every time someone right above us walks, we can hear the creeking sound from the wood floor. Very ghetto! It was loud enough to keep me awake and woke me up early in the morning. I called to complain and the front desk lady seen rude and no apologies what so ever. Not to mention that she was coughing loudly over the phone without saying excuse me! Anyways, her responds was they only have a room available that we can switch to but in will be on the first floor which she said would be even louder! She then said if we do decided to switch, then give her a call back.
Overall, this hotel is at a great location. Close to the airport, Bart station and a whole bunch of Chinese restaurants within walking distance. Just make sure to request to stay on the top floor which is 4th floor.

Room Tip: Choose top floor!

Stayed at this hotel by chance as my flight was cancelled. The hotel is 3 minutes away from the airport and provides a free shuttle. The shuttle took around 30 minutes to get to the airport as it had to go through a couple more hotels. The Hotel itself is nice and clean. It was my first stay at a Fairfield Inn so I have to say that the furniture looked kind of cheap. The bed was comfortable but the AC was very noisy. I had a room that was facing the airport so it was a bit noisy but not annoying. The hotel is a minutes walk from BART which takes you all the way downtown for $4.10. That was the pleasant part. The area has a lot of restaurants and one interesting good Chinese place (the Kitchen) just across is worth being checked out.
