Had a very good experience at the hotel. The staff is very courteous and professional. The room was well appointed, and the furnishing were good. Bed was very comfortable and noise level was excellent. The carpet needs to be updated, but that's about it. The breakfast in the morning was very nice. It included scrambled eggs and cheese omelets, along...

My room was comfortable, excellent both for relaxing in bed and watching TV and working at the desk. The staff--everyone, from each and every desk clerk, to the janitors, the chamber maids, the kitchen staff--were all genuinely kind, courteous, and professional. The morning breakfast was sumptuous and varied, on a weekday no less, with eggs, bacon sausage, toast, cereals, oatmeal,...

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...

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.

There is NO free parking. 9 dollars a night. Front desk was ok when we arrived but my daughter asked about the laundry and the girl at the desk said dryer doesn't work. This was the last day before my daughter drove to college so it was important but she was not helpful and didn't care. Breakfast was the worst...

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...
