I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years. It is convenient to the airport with great views of the bay. The room was very nice with a towel shaped like an animal and chocolate. I felt special after a long week of business travel. I will stay again on my next trip.

Be aware that the driver often does not speak fluent English so make sure that you are in the correct bus going South. The shuttle bus is shared with other hotels but on both our stays we had no difficulty getting on the bus. First stay. As a Spire Elite we were upgraded to a suite which we really appreciated....

One of late mother’s favourite sayings was “don’t judge a book by its cover” and this is certainly true of the SFO South HIX. When I pulled into the car park on a warm September evening my heat sank a little - the exterior of the hotel would never win any awards. However check-in was friendly and efficient and I... More

Clean rooms and quiet atmosphere. Not in the best area but if you're on a budget or just need to stay close to the airport then this is a good start. Friendly staff, free breakfast buffet and wifi. Family friendly.

We stayed here for one night. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The bayside rooms offer a view of the planes landing at the airport, you are that close. Strangely, you can't really hear the noise. We had a room at the end of the hallway, close to ice machine. It produced more noise than the landing planes. One... More

This hotel is not 3 stars and not 3.5 stars as listed on Price line. It is 2, maybe 2.5. To begin with the carpet is very worn and dingy, my room carpeting was wet, the entire room not just one area. The room smelled moldy. The bathroom door barely cleared the toilet. To get to the shower you had... More

Location of this hotel made an easy commute to the airport and Bart station. We had a Bayside view and also would see the jets take off and land.
