This is low budget hotel. Rooms are from the 80's. WiFi is slow at best most of the time it has to little no power to stay on the internet. No food outlets within walking distance. If you stay here I am sure you can find other problems. The staff were nice...

I stayed with two adults and two kids. We went to visit San Francisco but had to fly in through Oakland Airport So we had to use BART (train) which we took to SFO and from there used hotel Shuttle. The hotel was clean for the most part, Watch for elevator door as it blends in with rest of hallway doors. Breakfast is Juice, Coffee, and Danishes. No hot breakfast served here. You can usually get a cup of coffee at any time but Juice machine is shut down right after breakfast. The staff was friendly and the shuttle service was on time. I'd say it is worth staying in if really on a tight budget, worked for us great.

Chose this spot due to good price (online) and shuttle. Rooms were small-seemed clean. Noisy-airplanes and hallway most of night.
Biggest dissappointment-morning shuttle over 25 min late-had to take taxi. Would not stay here again.

I sincerely apologize that your scheduled shuttle service did they did not arrive on time.
Had my desk staff known, we would have gladly secured you a taxi at our expense. Our contracted shuttle service is extremely reliable, and I am meeting with their owner today to discuss this unique instance. I will be very happy to take your call so I may personally apologize as well as reimburse you for the expense.

Please contact me (650 877 0770) at your convenience.

The Hotel Focus is in a great location and we are happy to offer real value in the San Francisco Airport locale. Our housekeepers do a great job as you stated. In an ongoing effort to ameliorate the noise of air traffic, we have installed soundproofed windows that are double pane and glazed for guest satisfaction. It has been another in a list of upgrades to the hotel that is in response to customer feedback and we invite suggestions for improvement from all our valued guests.

Thank you for choosing us based on value, customer service, and cleanliness.
We do apologize for this most uncommon and important service that did not perform to your expectations.

I use this hotel because of transiting through SFO. All I needed was an economic hotel close to SFO with a shuttle service. Hotel Focus met what I needed. Shuttle is a 10 min ride to SFO and runs every half an hour. Very convenient. Room was nice and clean. Front desk was friendly but did miss my wake up call. Breakfast included was boring. Should include at least bakery baking goods instead of packaged ones. Overall it's fine for an airport hotel

Stayed there for 6 days. Near by shopping mall and very near to airport and car rental. And very friendly staff. My mom forgot to take her handbag at reception counter. Very friendly staff kept it safe and returned to us. Had a pleasant and nice stay with very good staff.

I gave this motel full stars, for the dollar, do not go past it......it has had a few bad reviews....but
the room was clean comfortable and nice and warm (Febuary) They have a free curtesy bus and the breakfast was available at about 5.30am, we also signed in at 11.30 am which worked well for us from a long flight from New Zealand.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floors if you have allergies to animals as they do allow pets, but put them in the low...
