I stayed at this hotel for business in April 2013. The hotel is very easy to find, has easy access from the freeway, and has ample parking. The hotel is exactly what I expect of a Holiday Inn Express - nice breakfast, clean room, and very comfy bed! One downside was the lack of good wifi - it did not...

We stayed two nights here and drove into the city each day. It was convenient to the airport and the city. This hotel seemed brand new. Everything was in perfect condition! The beds were super comfy and the breakfast was delicious! I didn't love the extra costs to park or the sound of planes out our window, but I could...

Overall nice place. The towels are scratchy and the buffet not so good. But other than that nice place. I would stay there again. Much better then some of the other motels. Hard to go wrong with a chain motel.

I would NEVER recommend staying at this hotel. The General Manager Raj set the tone for an unimaginably awful experience when I made my reservation. I should have known that based on the fact that he never returned calls, was inflexible, showed no customer service what so ever, that I should have made a reservation at any of the number...

One of the better airport hotels we've come across. Rooms are spacious with nice comfortable beds. The location is right down the street from the airport. The hotel breakfast is VERY good. Little cheese omelets, bacon, sausage, waffles, fruit and cereal. Unlike most hotel breakfasts, this one was well stocked with everything.

We used this hotel for easy access to airport. It served our purposes. Shuttle begins at 4:30 AM, and runs every 1/2 hour. Very short trip to airport. Clean, comfortable rooms. Not much dining choice without a car. McDonald's next store. Costco within walking distance.

On behalf of the entire staff at the Holiday Inn Express SFO North, we would like to thank-you for your stay and comments. We appreciate the compliments and positive feedback. We apologize for the cinnamon roles; however, our distributor did have the item back-ordered for a week due to increased demand; therefore, we have modified our inventory of emergency stock....

It's pretty close to SFO, driving takes 10 minutes or so. Of course you hear plane noise at night. The hotel is really standard. Nothing better or worse. It's quite new and well equipped. The only thing I don't feel so good is that it doesn't provide things for platinum members. At least I got no benefits at all for...

My stay began very well. I arrived prior to check-in time, but the management team of Raj and John assisted me by storing my bags, providing me access to the business center and actually checking me in 45 minutes early. My room was kept immaculately clean, the bed was very comfortable and everything in the room functioned perfectly. I was...
