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.

Absolutely love this place. So comfortable and the new remodel is perfect! Will definitely stay here whenever I'm in San Francisco. When you see the price, and then walk into your room... awesomeness. The breakfast they serve is great. There is no way you could leave here hungry, as there is something for everyone! Definitely adding this to my list... More

The Dylan was a wonderful surprise. With a 1950s motel exterior vibe (and they are renovating now) the rooms are lovely and homey, the bed is great, the shower is wonderful. A great free breakfast and a friendly and slightly boho feeling (the wifi, which was terrific, had the password "peaceandlove"). The hotel is very near the airport (bring earplugs)... More

We go up to visit family in the Bay Area often but decided to stay at a non-major chain hotel this time. The hotel is along a major street but was very close to my brother's house which is why I picked this one. The room was a bit small but very clean and nicely decorated. They also served a... More

We needed a hotel relatively close to San Francisco International airport and one that gave easy access into the city. The Dylan was perfect for this.The rooms are a little small (for 3 adults) being old motel style but were clean and the beds comfortable. The hotel is undergoing some renovations to make the entrance more appealing. The breakfast was... More

Stayed here 2 nights in mid-June. Not that impressive from the outside but the room was spacious, newly-renovated and VERY clean. I believe this is a family-run operation and they're currently renovating the exterior and front office area. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. You can tell this is a labor of love for them. We were... More

Stayed overnight at this hotel whilst en route to Miami from Australia. We chose it for its proximity to the BART train system. It was a 2 min walk and so great for getting in and out of the city on our 1 day stopover. The reception staff are very friendly & helpful. Our room, which was a deluxe one,... More

Wonderful location: airport transportation and walking distance to the Bart. Despite current renovation to the exterior, The Dylan's room/bathroom are completed. While small, both rooms have all the necessary amentities. An added bonus was the full breakfast. They have eggs, potatoes, fruit, yogurt, and even make your own waffles.

Small hotel with friendly staff. Good location with easy access to the BART and Caltrain. Room was dated but clean. Comfortable enough for a night's stay before the next day's flight. Breakfast was a simple combi of hot and cold items but good enough for business travelers.

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
