“GOOD NIGHT STAY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Arrived in San francisco after a long flight and found the hotel near to the Airport. This Hotel is confortable, clean, well equiped and well laid out with a nice lounge bar and resturant. The location of the hotel made it quick and easy to get on our way out of the city to our Lake Tahoe holiday destination .

If you need to stay the night before traveling from SFO and leave your car while you are gone, then this is the hotel for you. The room rate includes parking for free for 14 days and only charges $5.00 each day thereafter. In the morning they have a free shuttle to the airport and they pick you up when you return. The onsite restaurant is not only convenient but very good. If you want something more like a sandwich or hamburger, you can eat in the bar. In the winter we like to sit in front of the fireplace in the bar to eat. Excellent overall value. Ask for a room in the 200 or 300 sections.

We selected the hotel via internet and using tripadvisor. It was a bit of a dissapointment entering the room. It was not very large. The bathroom had only a shower. The complimentary airportshuttle was slow, we had to wait for nearly half an hour, music in the bus was very loud (we travelled nearly 25 hours from Amsterdam, via Houston to SFO). The driver was helpfull but not very polite. On the other hand, the ride from SFO to the hotel takes only minutes. Front desk staff was very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room

We've stayed here 3 times and have never been disappointed. The hotel, itself, isn't new or all that fancy, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the restaurant is wonderful. The offer a great breakfast as well as an airport shuttle which makes for easy traveling, and their parking option cannot be beat. The staff are friendly and helpful. For long trips, we usually stay here the night before and the night we get back; it's almost become our home away from home when we travel. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Because it's on a busy street, try to chose a room in the back (which is easy, because most of t...

Park and Fly feature is an excellent idea. Does away with airport parking hassles. Restaurant on premises with good variety of food items. The airport pick up was quick and convenient with very polite and helpful driver.

Pleasant surprise. Friendly staff. Airport shuttle. For long trips it is less expensive than long term parking near SFO. We will be staying again in September. The only negative was that the return shuttle was a little slow for pickup but other than that the room was recently remodeled and the bed was comfortable!

we use the park and fly at this hotel 3-4 tunes a year. The early breakfast and the airport shuttle are very helpful. Having a full menu restaurant is an advantage. There is a feature for staying overnight on the return trip that really is worthwhile when returning from a long flight.
