“Easy to recommend”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I used this hotel for an overnight stop after flying transatlantic, and was so glad I did. The shuttle runs from the airport every 35 mins, so not too long to wait, though you have to keep your eyes peeled for the sign on the side of the bus.
The hotel has a nice feel, even though it is so close to the airport - the layout and the plants make it feel more homely. My room was clean, pleasant, and (joy) the bed was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was good.
You can walk from the hotel to the BART station (if you really want) or just get the shuttle back to the airport, and there is plenty of free parking space. I felt very comfortable at the hotel and will definitely use it again.

Hi Ruthie,

Thank you so much for recommending us on TripAdvisor. Knowing that you felt at home in our room is the best compliment. From our amenities to our helpful service, it's our goal to be a home away from home! I appreciate you keeping us in mind for your next trips to San Francisco, and I hope to see you back again soon.

Take care,

We were a bit hesitant to stay here, as we are more accustomed to staying at larger chain hotels, but we are sure glad we took the risk. It was one of our most pleasant stays in a hotel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. But what really sold us on this place was the incredibly pleasant and courteous staff. Customer service is huge for us, and we sure got superior customer service here. The receptionist welcomed us upon our arrival and throughout our stay called us by name. We were early for our check in but just wanted to drop our bags off so we can enjoy the town during the day. The receptionist not only stowed our bags, but invited us to enjoy their complimentary breakfast before we headed out. The breakfast they serve is not your typical hotel complimentary breakfast. They had quite the spread from warm waffles and omelets to bacon, sausage and fruit. All in all, a very friendly hotel with exceptional service. A great value!

My daughter and I drove down to get her settled in SF for a new job and I flew back. I looked online for a place near the airport which wasn't a big chain. The Millwood Suites came up with such good reviews that I took a chance and we really enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a room with a little sitting/ TV area and our beds were extremely comfy. We were also close enough to travel out to Half Moon Bay for a quiet dinner. The staff was very friendly and everything was very clean. The breakfast was really above par for a continental breakfast . Also the hand-held/or wall mounted shower was very nice. I'd stay again.

A well-appointed room with a comfortable bed, free parking, free breakfast, adorable little property, nice proprietors, quiet sleep and within walking distance of stores and restaurants. All at a great price! I can't say enough good things about this little place. About 10 minutes from the airport .... we'll be back!

Brought the family down to enjoy the city and other parts of California - always know where to go and where to stay when making the trip. The Millwood is conveniently located, the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and have everything you need, the beds are extremely comfortable, and the continental breakfast is a great way to begin the day. The suite was perfect for our party of five. Book a room at the Millwood and you won't be disappointed!

Sort of picked this out of a hat because: price was good, I like independent establishments and I really like vintage motels. What a real treat this little place was. My sister and I did a stay-park-fly with them last week and were gobsmacked with how wonderful a place it is. They must have used a top flight designer to totally remodel and redo the decor and amenities. We had breakfast at the airport before leaving but they set out a very comprehensive buffet breakfast every morning beginning at 6:30. I went over at 6:30, heated 2 Danish in the microwave, slathered them with butter and brought them to our room to accompany the fresh, single serve room coffee. Linens were impeccable, bathroom small but everything in place, and not a single odor, whiff, or trace of cigarette smoke anywhere - or cloying room freshener. We slept with our window full open rather than use the A/C and it was quiet throughout the night. Nights in Millbrae being close to the bay and ocean, are cool and perfect for sleeping. Can't say enough about this Inn. It is a gem.

Hi Mary,

Thanks for staying with us last week. I'm thrilled to know you were 'gobsmacked' by us and enjoyed a wonderful stay. From our interior design to our varied amenities, we put a lot of thought and care into our inn. It's nice to know you appreciate it.

As a small business owner, I appreciate you supporting independent establishments. Thanks again for your review. I hope to see you again the next time you're in the San Francisco area.

The Millwood Inn was a great play for park and fly. Their park and fly package is a great deal since you can leave your car at the hotel for up to fourteen days. It is close to the airport on a main road in Millbrae with easy connection to highway 101. The room itself was great. The amenities were upscale and the bed was very comfortable. The desk lady was helpful and efficient at her job. To find a variety of places to eat you have to go down the road a bit. There is a Waffle House at the end of the block that serves home made food at amazing prices for the amount that you get. Also there was a Japanese and a Chinese eatery within walking distance.
