45 minute wait for the shuttle from the airport to the Holiday Inn...the AIRPORT Holiday Inn! 1 or 2 miles, maybe? 200 bucks for a really nice room, you'd think coffee would be included. Honestly, it was--ONE K-cup of caffeinated with 3 K-cups of DECAF! You want to see an addict go crazy--I drank the one cup of caffeinated (sorry... More

I stayed at this hotel the night before flying out of SFO. The location is convenient to the rental car center which is helpful if you have a rental car to turn in before the flight. However, good luck finding a place to park that car near the hotel. Most of the parking is not near the hotel entrance. Check... More

This is a nice property if you get stuck at the airport or don't want to spend the bucks to stay downtown. It's easy to access the airport BART line by using the shuttle back and forth or by calling UBER to send you back and forth (about 12$ each way). The hotel is nice, not luxury, but well maintained...

Stayed our last day in California here to make flight easy. The room was very clean and up to date. The location was convenient and actually surprisingly quiet. Houlihans restaurant also surprised us with excellent food and great service.

My husband and I intended to stay here for 2 nights of our week-long vacation to San Francisco. Ultimately, we elected to only stay one night and book a different hotel for the second night because we could not imagine staying there for another night. Immediately upon entering the hotel, there is a very foul odor throughout the entire hotel.... More

I loved my hotel room, it was very clean and modern. I am not sure why it was a three star only because we were happy with everything. The breakfast in the restaurant is nice, and you can get to all the SF sites and sounds easily from its convenient location.

Not far from SFO with a very good shuttle to the airport. The staff was helpful, the room was very nice and well appointed and a nice place to eat was next door. We found this just the place we needed to get an early flight the next morning.

The Holiday Inn Express in South San Francisco is soooo convenient to the Int'l Airport. I had a hire car to return and that was on the same road. It is straight off the Freeway, the check-in was quick. They even waived my parking fee cause I had to wait 20 mins for my room (I was early!!!). The staff... More
