“More than was expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Located within a South San Francisco waterfront neighborhood dominated by attractive, recently developed mid-rise offices and warehousing facilities about 10 minutes north of San Francisco International airport; a little tricky to find on the east side of Rte. 101 near the end of Oyster Point Boulevard; very friendly staff; ample off-street parking; very nicely appointed, over-sized, quiet rooms with a bay window sitting area overlooking a large marina and the Bay; relaxing; minibar; gas fireplace; large flat screen TV; over-sized work area; in-room breakfast; in-hotel dining available until 9:30 p.m., otherwise nearest restaurants (Chinese and Italian) are about a 10 minute drive away; large, well lighted bathroom with tub/shower; very fairly priced considering the quality of the facility and what you’d expect to pay at nearby airport lodging; highly recommended

My boyfriend and I stayed here Oct 26-29 as we did not want to stay inside the city due to the high parking rates.

I normally do a lot of researching and comparing before I book anything and I must say the reviews about this place were right on! The rooms are very spacious and have a great view of the marina. The decor and colors of the hotel gives off this positive energy and it really helps when you have had a long day in the city and want to lay back and relax. It is very quiet around the area despite being close to the airport. The concierges were all super helpful in helping us find the closest routes into the city attractions and parking locations. They always had a smile on and acknowledged us entering and leaving the hotel. Free self-parking! During our stay, there was a couple getting married and had their ceremony and banquet right next door in their banquet hall. Although we could hear the music and people talking (our room was next to the banquet), the noise level went down dramatically around 11pm. I thought that was very considerate of the hotel to keep in mind of hotel guests.

The only downside of the hotel are that the doors tend to slam really loud if you do not close it yourself. We stayed at the end of the hallway and heard all of our neighbor's doors slam. I know it is a hotel safety to have the doors close behind you, but it was a tad loud in my opnion. Also, the restaurant was not the greatest. It wasn't bad, but it was only average at best. The service was good, but the taste and texture of food was blah.

All in all, we would definitely stay back at this hotel and recommend it to others!

We enjoyed this friendly Inn. The view of the marina was lovely. This property is not fancy but comfortable and clean. It was a great value and near the airport for early morning flights. The staff could not have been more helpful with locating the BART to head into San Francisco for sightseeing.

We were full of demands and the Inn at Oyster Point spoiled us. We arrived at SF with our bikes and our panniers, and we were going to set off to the wine country on bikes. But we needed to leave our bike bags somewhere. As we were going to stay at the Inn at Oyster Point two weeks later, we stopped by to ask them to store them for us while we were touring. They agreed immediatly, and even gave us advice on the safest route into the town.
When we finally arrived back at the hotel, we had our bike bags waiting for use in our room, the most welcoming staff in the world, and a beautiful view from our window.
The decoration is bonkers, but extremely interesting way.
They took us to the airport at the time we needed even if it meant that the van had to leave in an time that it wasn't scheduled to.
We forgot to tip the van driver, and even so we had no cash left, and we had already paid the bill (on our credit card), they didn't hesited to do every again to us in order to include the tip.
They simply don't know the word "No". They will do everything they can for you!
What an amazing place!!! If we ever come back to SF, we will no doubt be staying there.
One thing I find it is fair to say is that the restaurant, despite having a very friendly and professional staff, its food its a little bit ordinary compared to the great hotel its located within. It's not to say that the food is bad, it's good and honest food. Just not as mind-blowing as the hotel itself.

You cannot beat this location, shuttle service and the option for long term parking while traveling. We have used this hotel for years for our annual European trips when we leave the country for 5 weeks at a time. The value for safe parking is unmatched and makes the overnight stay worthwhile. The rooms are spacious, have fireplaces, and we have always been lucky to get a nice view of the marina. Breakfast included. If your flight is super early or late and is outside of their shuttle service, they will arrange for a cab and reimburse you the cab fare. A hidden gem when flying out of San Francisco!

It was such a quaint hotel. Totally worth the price. Everyone was so nice to us. When we checked in they gave us a card to fill out of what breakfast we would like brought to our room in the morning and at what time. We couldn't believe it, coffee, OJ, cereal with fresh fruit, pastries, bagels with cream cheese. We felt so special. Loved it & would go back just to stay there. We have already recommend it to 6 of our friends who plan on visiting San Francisco. Thanks!!

The Oyster Point is a friendly hotel with very quirky decor but free wifi and helpful, obliging staff. We used it for an overnight stay, as it is close to the airport but doesn't have the feel of an airport hotel. They run a shuttle between the hotel and the airport and the shuttle driver dropped us off at the car hire pick up point, which saved us time.

Room Tip: The waterfront rooms are more expensive but have a great view.
