Although you are located around 45min from downtown SF, the BART station is 2 blocks away the Hotel entrance, therefore you would reach SF very quickly....The hotel has a good room, great bed, not so spacious, and not all the rooms has refrigerator nor microwave....nevertheless the breakfast is very good, and their most precious asset is without any doubt the personal...they are ALWAYS available to help you either with a transportation issue, attractions reviews or just a simple tourist help...Free parking also offered....Good place to stay

We had a former smoking room and the bed, bed sheets and pillow were terribly smelling. I asked for changing and every thing was done without any problems. Very friendly.
Changing the carpet could be also a good idea!
However we found the rates very hight! The styling of this hotel is nice and friendly.

travelodgesfairport, Owner at The Dylan at SFO, responded to this reviewResponded October 6, 2012

We appreciate the reviews of all of our guests. We are glad that this guest found our front desk to be extremely helpful and that this guest enjoyed the styling of our hotel. However, we were one of the first properties at SFO to become 100% non-smoking, more than 7 years ago. We realize how sensitive guests are to smoke. So we do not allow any of our guests to smoke in the room. We make each of our guests sign on our registration card that they will not smoke in the guest rooms. If ever a guest would smoke in a room we put it out of order for 24 hours in order to clean everything in the room. Our longest tenured housekeeper cleans this room. It had not been smoked in. Regardless when this guest asked to have all of her bedding changed, we obliged immediately as we want all of our guests to be happy at our property. Also the carpet in all our guest rooms is less than 3 years old. We shampoo our carpets on a regular basis to insure its cleanliness. Prices do vary at our hotel from week to week. This guest happened to stay during the busiest week of the entire year when prices were the highest. We feel that our prices were still quite competitive as we always want to provide a great value to all our guests. Of course, in the end it is choice of each guest to decide whether they want to book a reservation at our property.

We needed a Hotel close to the airport and happened upon the Dylan. Not a single negative for this Gem. Close to the Airport, Bart, the 101 and anything else one would need. 20 minutes outside the city but was a breeze heading in and out. Will be a definate stay again if we are in the area.

We stayed at The Dylan for one night before flying out of San Francisco and found it to be very comfortable and only minutes from the airport. The front desk employees were very helpful. When we checked in the man at the desk discussed with us the pros and cons of dropping our rental car off that night and taking the complimentary shuttle to the airport the next morning. He gave us a printout with detailed instructions for returning rental cars (one exit north of the main airport exit). The beds were comfortable and the shower was huge by hotel standards. There was free wifi and a very good continental breakfast (hard boiled eggs, ham, cheese and fruit in addition to the usual bagels, muffins, toast and cereal). We would definitely stay there again.

We spent our last night here since it was so close to the airport. I wish we had spent the entire San Francisco visit here. The price was exceptional. The hotel has the BART right outside the door. They have a great breakfast, fabulous service, it is very clean and comfortable. They even let us check in at 9am. We would have spent a few more $'s on the BART but the savings on the hotel would have been a bundle if we had spent the entire stay here.

An older style Motel but perfect for commuters using the pick-up and drop-off service to the Airport and a simple short walk to catch the BART into San Francisco. There are eating outlets on either side and a small shopping strip over the road to cover ones every need. Breakfast was good and inclusive and best of all was the FREE Internet connect, vital for any traveller. Excellent value for money.

To avoid the extremely expensive down town hotels my wife and I decided to find cheaper hotels that were close to the subway or lightrail systems during our travels along the pacific coast. We picked the Dylan for this reason ,it is a two minute walk to the light rail system. {B.A.R.T.} The trip into the heart of San Franciso takes about 20 min. The trains are safe and clean and very inexpensive. The hotel was an older building but fairly well kept, the rooms were clean the staff was helpful and the included breakfast was ok unless you are looking for a full sit down meal. I was satified overall and would use this hotel again. hope this helps.

The Dylan at SFO, proud winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2016, is a newly remodeled 58 room boutique hotel. They are conveniently located just 1 mile from the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and feature a free SFO Airport shuttle bus to and from the airport. They are within 100 yards of the Millbrae BART/CalTrain station, gateway to downtown San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. Our delicious complimentary breakfast features hot items that change daily, including: bacon, sausage, eggs, omelets, casseroles and potatoes. We also offer other tasty options: fresh waffles, fresh baked muffins, scones, danishes & cinnamon rolls, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels & cream cheese, toast, hard-boiled eggs, ham & cheese, juice and freshly brewed coffee. Complimentary fresh baked cookies, coffee and tea are available the afternoon. In 2017 The Dylan Hotel at SFO brought back mid-century modern with contemporary vibes through their recent remodel of the exterior, lobby, reception and breakfast room. The entrance is encased with eco-friendly siding and accented with a retro-feel hexagon patterned coreteen steel. Step into the lobby to the sound of subtle electronic jazz music quietly playing overhead as you take in the natural elements of the living wall and tree trunk table. Head to the reception, and enjoy the San Francisco murals behind the smoked glass and wood-grained shelving while checking in with our guest service agent. We offer complimentary Nescafe cappuccinos to enjoy while showing off your Scrabble skills on the giant wall game. In the morning enjoy a buffet breakfast featuring housemade granola, fresh baked muffins, waffles or some eggs and sausages along with many other goodies. While enjoying breakfast or waiting for our complimentary SFO airport shuttle, sit and admire the bigger than life sixties vibe wall art with starlet beauties and super heroes or just watch the wall mounted tablets streaming hip, retro movies. Their newly renovated guest rooms display the dreamy artwork of famous surrealist photographer, Thomas Barbey. Each guest room features all American made furniture with built-in USB, plush pillow top beds, 40 inch LED and much more. The newly renovated bathrooms have imported Spanish porcelain tile and rain showerheads. ... more   less
