Don't expect anything fancy from this hotel, but it is a perfectly acceptable place to sleep if you need short term accommodations. Parking is $10 and there seemed to be plenty of it, at least when we stayed last weekend. Room was clean but modest. Very basic. Not the greatest shower pressure but again, acceptable. Friendly staff. Short drive to... More

10 minutes from airport, free shuttle from/to airport. A lot of restaurants in 5 minutes walk distance. Lobby doesn't look too attractive but room was very clean and well maintained. Breakfast is very basic. Friendly staff. From my point of view - for such low price it's very good hotel. Best way to go to the SF Downtown - Lyft/Uber... More

This hotel was a delight. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were excellent with a good choice for the guests. The gardens outside were elegant, and quite pleasantly surprising for a 'budget hotel' near an airport. Clearly the owners had a design team on this one...peaceful rock gardens with swaying grasses and red cape cod chairs to... More

Free shuttle from airport. Good price. Place needs some additional upgrades but it was clean and has friendly stuff. Good breakfast - includes cereal, juice, tea and coffee and fresh bagels. Cons: this place has zero-sound proofing. Seriously. If you don't want to hear people talking when they pass your room then bring noise cancellation headphones. However, windows block noise... More

Looking for a hotel near the airport it was not easy, too many choices but when I saw the hotel website, I was impressed by the garden. I booked a room and I made a request to have a room facing the garden. During the two days that I was there, I had coffee and breakfast outside. I believe, Oscar... More

This hotel is inexpensive & okay just to spend the night. I would not want to stay longer than a night. The sink is literally right next to the door. The bathroom is separate. Surprisingly it was quiet being on the second floor. The tv was large and worked fine. The air conditioner worked great! I like that the window... More

As for the least expensive hotel in the proximity of SFO airport I didn't have my expectations set up high. Still, for over $150 per night, one would expect something a little better. I stayed there twice, for overseas connections, and at least the staff was better the second time. But both rooms were old and tired, with frayed, old... More

My four kids and i spent one night here for a layover and it was perfect- especially for the price. the beds were super comfortable. the staff let me store our obscene amount of luggage behind the counter and when we woke up too late for breakfast the next morning, they still gave me food for the kids. thank you...

三藩市之行,住宿的安排是一個令我們好頭痛的問題,因為我們要安置自駕遊的汽車。在三藩市市區內,好多酒店都好貴,就算有停車場,收費都不便宜。當時,我只懂把目標轉去橋對面,勇士主場所在的城市 Oakland。不過,對面岸的酒店也不便宜,而且是 Oakland 的市中心區,也是市中心,而且來回要過橋,不化算。 之後,由熟熟地地方的 Brother-in-Law 給意見,我們把目標轉移都三藩市南部的衛星城市。細心找,我們在一個名叫 South San Francisco 的城市,也是三藩市機場的所在地,找到這一間有 car park 的酒店,名字叫《Hotel Focus SFO》。 來的時間是晚上,drop off 了家人在酒店的 reception 門口,我便駒車前往酒店 complex 內的露天 car park。酒店佔地雖大,但因為酒店旁是高壓電纜,而且電纜的巨柱就在座落在酒店的停車場,所以,大空地,只能夠做 car park。此外,別以為泊車免費,酒店收左我$8 美金一天的停車費。 那天大家都疲倦了,所以一辦好入住,全人類都立即入房。因為是大城市,土地問題,房的空間比起之前一晚的 motel 實在地小,但設施配套,相對起來,就比較齊全。 我本人逗留得最多的地方,其實是 reception,因為辦理入住,辦理停車場,拿地圗,問旅遊資訊,房間修理 (我們房燒左個燈膽),都是由服務態度110分的 reception 員工處理,更好的,是日班同夜班的工作人員,都十分之友善。 兩天,我都有在 reception 處理當天的行程,而 reception 有航班的資訊。畢竟,這酒店好近三藩市國際機場,有住客就是在三藩市玩完,住在這酒店,之後,由酒店方代叫的士,一早去機場。 我們選這酒店的原因,是因為這酒店包早餐。早餐,其實只是無限量供應的 cereal、咖啡、麵包及奶茶。 早上,酒店內的所以住客的聚集在早餐的地方,那時候才知道,這酒店幾乎晚晚都會 full house,而且我們留意到,大部份的住客都同我們一樣,是自駕遊的旅客。 我的簡單早餐,就是一杯咖啡,一份 cereal,第一天的早上,沒吃那麼多,而第二天的早上,因為大家要爭取時間駒車回西雅圖,我們一早就打算食到飽,在路途中,全程輕食為主,而我,在臨離開三藩市的一天,吃上了4碗的 cereal。 說酒店地方大,只有那 car park 大,算是對了一半,我在早餐後在酒店的前前後後行了一圈,我發現酒店原來有一個後花園,在仲夏的日夜,在 garden 中噗噗啤酒,看看天,看看遠處的飛機升降,應該是一件幾 relax 既事。 兩天的住宿,感覺可以。
