I have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed (except when there was no vacancy). While downtown San Francisco hotels are always very expensive the Dylan is moderately priced. It has a 24 hour shuttle to/from the airport and is walking distance to the metro. The rooms are not opulent but nicely appointed for a 2-3 star hotel.... More

Free Shuttle to/from SFO. Drug stores, gas stations, eateries, etc. all within a 1-3 block walk. 10 minute walk to Mills-Peninsula Hospital. Reasonable rates, call or website for the best... More

This hotel, with some renovations now underway in the reception area, has a boutique hotel kind of vibe. It's an easy five minute walk from the Millbrae BART station, and they share a reliable airport shuttle with several other nearby hotels. Be sure to check on the hotel website for discounts before booking through a third party. Breakfast was okay.... More

I stayed here for one night whilst travelling from San Francisco to Las Vegas. For what I paid the room was really comfy, the TV was big and had loads of channels available. The staff were really helpful and there was breakfast included in the morning. (Which was fairly basic, but better than nothing) There are loads of resturants and... More

Accessible from BART/Caltrain. Anna Page was also very accommodating. She gave tips on places to visit and how to go around the city. Highly recommended who wants to travel between san francisco and san jose. Near restaurants and convenience stores.

We stayed one night en route elsewhere. Good proximity to the airport and handy free shuttle. Room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff were efficient, but not welcoming or friendly. Breakfast buffet style was nice with a fair selection. Also close to Bart to get downtown about $10 return per person and 30 mins to Powell St.

I stayed here for a night for a baseball game. This is a clean simple hotel would be better if the rooms were around 100.00. Rooms were small but good. Bathoom had good water pressure. Breakfast room looked nice I did not partake in it. Free parking

This non-chain, inexpensive motel (including free parking, wifi, airport shuttle and breakfast) is just one block from the Millbrae BART station and a 10' drive from SFO. This is a GREAT option if you need to catch an early flight (they don't do park and fly, though- I recommend the non-chain Inn at Oyster Point for that). The rooms are... More

We stayed here when we were in town for an exhibition game at Levi's Stadium. It is right next to the BART station and that is how we chose it. Great location between cities and free parking. Breakfast was good just had a lot of people so food went fast. Rooms were good and hotel was easy to get to.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This family owned boutique hotel with newly remodeled guestrooms (2014) is conveniently located 1 mile from the San Francisco Airport (SFO) with free 24-hour SFO Airport shuttle bus service to and from the SFO airport. They offer free parking for your night of stay; however, no car is necessary as they are within 100 yards of the Millbrae BART (rapid transit)/Caltrain station-your gateway to San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. Aside from Their superior location, there are other perks that will make your experience with them even more special. Every morning guests will enjoy a free deluxe continental breakfast featuring hard-boiled eggs, ham & cheese, tasty in-house-baked goods, freshly made granola, fresh waffles and so much more. Come back to the front desk in the afternoon to enjoy freshly baked cookies, tea and coffee. Talk to their friendly front desk staff about San Francisco tour recommendations, they are happy to assist you with planning. The Dylan is proud to offer free high-speed wireless Internet throughout the hotel, making it easy for you to catch up on work or emails. Lounge by the fountain in their relaxing Tuscan themed patio complete with comfy seating and lantern lighting. They recently completed the remodeling of their guestrooms in 2014. They took an artistic approach to their new room designs and worked with famous surrealist photographer Thomas Barbey to select each piece of his dreamy artwork to display in their guestrooms. Look closely at the art and you'll begin to recognize icons from all around the world, including San Francisco. Each room is stylized to highlight the beauty of his work. If you enjoy unwinding in front of the TV, you'll love watching HBO on the 40 inch LCD flat screen TVs that they've provided in each guestroom. Their modern all American made furniture adds a touch of sophistication to their room design and unlike most hotels, they've incorporated ample USB ports and electrical outlets into every headboard and desk as they know the importance of staying connected to loved ones and colleagues. Their stunning new bathrooms feature spacious showers with imported Spanish porcelain tile, frameless glass shower doors and relaxing rain showerheads. For over 2 decades, they have been committed to offering their guests a quality stay at an extremely competitive rate. Their excellent reviews and awards, including the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, attest to this. Stay with them and see how easy and stress-free traveling can be. ... more   less
