Fairfield Inn & Suites San Francisco Airport/Millbrae
Ranked #7 of 7 Hotels in Millbrae
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stayed here overnight as we had to take an early morning flight from SFO. The hotel is only a couple of blocks walking distance from the BART station and the complimentary airport shuttle picked us up seamlessly the next morning at 4 am. The check in /out was quick and efficient - the room spotless. The beds were really comfortable -super !

We stopped here and stayed one night before picking up at rental car the next day at SFO. It was clean, convenient, would recommend to others for a quick stay. There didn't seem to be much in the area for a longer stay.

Don't stay here; there is none in the bathroom sink. And don't forget quarters for the guest laundry. The front desk runs out of change and you are left holding the laundry bag until they can get to the bank to get you some. And $3.50 for a wash to boot.

As a frequent Marriott traveller's found this Fairfield Inn and Suites lacking. The price is reasonable but the product is inferior. Even the breakfast is below par, lacking the limited basic breakfast staples, such as the waffle station. Never saw a hotel with a whirlpool but , no swimming pool either for that matter - kind of strange. Only one working elevator for a four story hotel didn't make for the easiest trip up and down either.

A quick 5 minute walk to the Millbrae BART station and then about 30 minute ride to Embarcadero station. I loved the free coffee throughout the day and the free breakfast in order to get our day started. Room was clean, free wi-fi and great selection of TV channels. San Fran is so expensive that I didn't mind staying a little further away and riding the BART in order to get good accommodations.

We used this hotel as a stopover point to and from Hawaii. Free shuttle 2 miles from SFO Short walk to Millbrae Trans center with BART and Caltrain 30 minute ride to the downtown attractions w/o the hassle and expense of parking a rental car. Rooms are large and clean with comfortable beds and two flat screen TVs. Free wireless in rooms. Hot breakfast with everything except waffles. They accommodated our early arrivals to and from Hawaii. All this at a great AAA rate. Will stay there again on any return trip to this area.

Room Tip: We have 1st and 3rd floor rooms and both were fine.

We recently spent 7 nights at the Millbrae Fairfield Inn while visiting San Francisco and were quite pleased with the hotel.

Pros -
Location: The hotel is situated 1.5 blocks for the Millbrae BART station (30 minute subway ride to downtown San Francisco) and about 1.5 miles from SFO with a shuttle running every 35 minutes from the Hotel to the airport. Additionally everything you need is nearby; plenty of restaurants, grocery stores (Trader Joes is two blocks away), coffee shops, etc. Millbrae is a safe, clean, inviting area and felt safe and secure walking around at night. A lovely area to stay.

Rooms: Rooms have been remodeled, are clean and include (2) 32" LG HDTVs with High Def DirectTV. Free wifi (with hit or miss speeds)

Staff: Overall the staff was pleasant. We arrived early for our reservation on the day we checked in. They gladly stored our luggage for us until a room was available which allowed us to get out and explore Millbrae and get something to eat. Same was true on the day we were flying home and checking out. Our flight was a redeye at 11 pm, we needed to return our rental at 4 pm and had time to kill and the front desk staff kindly stored our luggage after we checked out of the room around noon. The only minor complaint is that there was one front desk clerk (there was always only one clerk at the desk) who every time we passed she was surfing Facebook on the front desk computer - not too professional.

Cons-
Rooms: About the only issue we had with the hotel was with our room the first night. We did receive a 4th floor room which was nice, BUT it was right next to the Taco Bell and the late night drive through is NOISY. They moved us the next day. TIP - if possible request a room on any side that is not by the Taco Bell.

Continental Breakfast: We have been spoiled with Residence Inn and their hot and cold breakfast buffet items, so we were greatly disappointed in Fairfield Inn's selection. To their credit they coin it as a continental breakfast - and they do offer some additional hot items like the world's most thinly sliced bacon and scrambled eggs from a bag. They do have your standard fare; bagels, muffins, yogurt, juice, coffee, milk and cereal. We actually stopped down most days and at least had a bagel and some juice. In the end it allowed us to save our stomach for better offerings in the San Francisco area.

Conclusion - Clean, nicely renovated hotel with friendly staff in a fantastic location. Would definitely recommend and return to next time we are in San Francisco.

Room Tip: Request 4th floor and any room not near the Taco Bell drive through next door.

SF is like NY, there really isn't an "affordable" way to stay in the city, particularly when there's a major conference or event. That's why I look for hotels that have easy access to public transportation. Fairfield Inn in Millbrae was an experiment that worked great.
Free shuttle service from SFO, a decent little fitness center (emphasis on little), nice "suites" with separate workspace/TV areas from bedroom. Courteous and professional staff.
The place is across the street from several Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants. I ordered take-out from The Kitchen (great reviews) and then walked down to J&J Cafe Bakery for dessert. I had a great meal in my room watching the NBA Playoffs. Then caught the BART right into downtown the next morning. The BART station is 2 blocks from the hotel. Overall, very good experience.
