“Convenient to Airport”
Reviewed August 11, 2009

Convenient to SF Airport. Shuttle service available to arrivals and departures. Comfortable rooms and beds. Continental breakfast features bagels, cheese, ham, toast, cereal, fruit. juice, coffee and tea. Reception clerk on initial registration was generally disinterested and seemed annoyed with questions regarding car rental drop off and shuttle service. Walking distance to In and Out Burger an several restaurants.

We booked last minute and wanted somewhere close to the airport as our flight got in really late and all we wanted to do was go straight to bed... the Travelodge was perfect for this! It was about a $10 taxi ride from the airport, but if you call them they have a shuttle service which is free (just a tip for the driver required...)
Check in was easy and quick, our room was on the ground floor and although it was small it was clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed - wifi, cable tv, laundry, toiletries, etc... The bathroom was a little old looking but the rest of the room had been recently done up.
Only downside we can think of is that the breakfast room in the lobby was too small so we had to sit outside, and the selection wasnt great - just muffins, cereal and fruit really, but was adequate and fresh.

Attending a local family function, we chose this location because of its reasonable price and close proximity to everything. We had a corner room w/2 Doubles ... huge! Room was clean and looked to have been recently updated. Little musty but my handy Febreeze spray took care of that instantly. View was of the Cal Trans train station. At first worried that it would make for a noisy stay but the windows where double pained resulting in a soundless sleep. Free internet pleased the kids. We didn't use the Cal Train or BART but others in our group where impressed with how close it was to the Motel ... literally steps away. For a short stay, this is a perfect place. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Cute court yard for catching some fresh air or reviewing the day’s agenda ... however, be carful when sitting at the table as it has a residue that will dirty your hands and clothing in a heartbeat! We are always in the area for one family function or another and will definitely stay here again. Could go on but you'll have to check it out yourself

The location is the jewel in this Travelodge hotel. You can shuttle to the airport or take BART (that is just across the street) to San Francisco. There is a grocery store across the street and 15 restaurants within 3 blocks. The rooms are not big and they have full size pillowtop beds. Some might prefer queen, but alas they have none. Breakfast was fine for a deluxe continental. The bathroom has the best shower we have had on our trip. At the price I think it is the best value at this time, but check Trip Advisor for an update.

I stayed at this motel because of the BART station. As advertised, it is literally a 2 min. walk.
I rode BART every day and it was easy. Room was quiet, easy to get to, with dvd player, cable tv. AC/heat. Office had computer you can use for internet (great for boarding pass).
Only concern was limited parking for rental car. Had to park in street 1 night but no problems.
BART is extremely easy to use and this Travelodge's location makes it a no-brainer to book this motel. Will stay again for sure. Manager Cynthia a great help!

I read the reviews and thought, what? it's a Travelodge! If you have to spend a night on a stopover and look for a cheap hotel outside SF don't look any further, I am very allergic to noise. The Travelodge is on a pretty busy road opposite a railway station. It was quiet! The breakfast was great and the bed very nice. All that in SF for 85$.

The close location to BART to reach the city and the airport was great. Shuttle to and from airport was prompt and courteous. Rooms were very clean. All staff encountered were very helpful and went out of their way to assist, in particular Cynthia at the front desk. Breakfast was more than adequate with reasonable variety. The availabiltiy of tours which pick guests up at the hotel was another bonus. We were so pleased with our initial stay of 3 nights that we returned for 2 nights prior to our return home. Easy access to small plaza across the street was useful and numerous restaurants in walking distance.

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
