Stayed here for 3 nights (mandated by my employer). The Good: If location to SFO is important- this property as well as several others are your ideal location, maybe 10 minutes to SFO. Free shuttle service but the van also services other hotels, so delays possible. Free breakfast, 2 hot choices, some fruit. Nice medium sized outdoor pool but it... More

The quality of my experience staying for several nights in this hotel has been trumped by the fact that a billing mistake of over $1000 has not been remedied in two months. My employer paid for my stay, yet my personal credit card was also charged (a mistaken amount, I might add) and despite two months of asking for a... More

Waited over an hour for a hotel shuttle that never came. The front desk lied and acted poorly when questioned about it. I ended up taking another hotel's shuttle that was close and walking the rest of the way. Then when I complained I was verbally assaulted and threatened by their van driver.

When we need a place to stay near San Francisco airport, this is our preferred hotel. Friendly staff, well organized, clean, simple, inexpensive. Their complimentary breakfast is a half notch better than most and they have room service arrangements with nearby restaurants.

Great place to stay close to the airport. They have free on-site parking and free wi-fi. The room is comfortable with modern amenities in the bathroom. There was a complimentary breakfast, typical of most Holiday Inn Express Hotels. This 1 was a bit more filling with omelets and breakfast meats. The commute to the airport is convenient and they also... More
