“Great airport hotel”
Reviewed March 31, 2007

I was a bit apprehensive about this place given some of the reviews, but we had a very positive experience here. We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of our trip to get over jet lag and one more night at the end of our trip before flying out, each time sharing a 2 bedroom suite with my mother.

The complimentary shuttle arrived at the airport promptly, and the manager accepted us for an early check-in as soon as the suite was ready to occupy (11 a.m.), which was fantastic after our overseas flight. The desk clerks were all friendly and knowledgeable, sending us off to a great local diner for breakfast when we missed the complimentary buffet (they gave us a ride to the diner and came to pick us up). The suite was clean and well-appointed. Lots of towels and pillows, complimentary tea and coffee, TVs in all of the rooms, no problem with noise (yes, the occasional airplane went by overhead but HEY, it's an airport hotel...). We enjoyed the pool and whirlpool and even shot a few hoops on the basketball court.

The complimentary evening meal (pasta one night) was nothing to write home about, but the breakfast was adequate. We ate there each morning and were all well fed with fruit, various kinds of bread and pastry, hot oatmeal, even do-it-yourself waffles if you were so inclined.

There were some long-term guests, some were tradesmen I gathered, and looked a little rough around the edges, but they didn't bother us, were not noisy and kept to themselves.

If I had to say anything negative, it would be that the area wasn't GREAT ... a little rundown and I certainly wouldn't go out alone at night.

However, we would definitely recommend this hotel to other airport travelers and would stay here again should we find ourselves in need of a place to stay close to SFO.

We choose the Staybridge Suites in San Bruno to stay for a wedding being held at the nearby Westin on the other side of the airport. We ended up paying a $135/night, which wasn't bad since a family of four can easily stay in a two-bedroom suite. It was not the cleanest place on Earth, but it was effective. Also, all rooms have exterior entrances (which was a problem when lows are in the 20s).
The location is good since you are in between San Fransisco and Silicon Valley, near the 380 and 101. The hotel is near a mall and soem other shopping, so the area feels nicer than it probably is. The BART station is nearby and we did use it to go into San Francisco. Overall, the hotel is worth the price and not more or less.

We stayed here in early October for 4 days over a weekend in a 2 bedroom unit on the 2nd floor. First, the positives. The rooms are decent and a good value for the money. We requested a crib, and it was set up when we got there. Unlike many other hotels they don't give you a flimsy pack n play, they set up an actual crib that is very sturdy. The units were clean and functional, and parking was plentiful each night we were there. The front desk staff was also very friendly.

However, several things you should be aware of:
(1) The hotel is directly under the flight path for SFO. Every night beginning around 9 pm until about 12 am, it literally felt like a jet plane was going to crash into the unit. The windows are dual paned but even so the whole unit shakes and noise is very loud. It is not like this most of the day, but when the planes do fly over, it is really loud.
(2) The breakfast buffet dining room is way too small for the number of people trying to use it. When we were there, numerous people had to stand and wait for others to finish. Also, the selection of food is OK, but not very varied.
(3) The kitchen is clean and adequate. However it is not really furnished that well. Not many cooking pans, utensils or other kitchen items there.

  • Liked — Good value; low price; availability of 2 bedroom suites
  • Disliked — Noisy jet planes flying overhead

We have stayed at this hotel several times now.

Price: I don't think you can beat the value. The suites are huge, clean and well equipped - especially if you plan to stay for more than 5 days. Internet (wired) is free, breakfast is free (and reasonable), laundry facilities are free, and you do not pay to park your car there (although parking can sometimes be tight).

Location: Ideal for the airport (SFO) and it is close to the BART, a mall (Tanforan), cinema and supermarket (Albertsons). If you are planning on day trips North or South it is very handy for the freeways. If you plan on heading downtown you can walk to the Bart station and use that rather than driving (20 mins) and trying to park downtown, which is a nightmare.

I would definitely stay again. There is no better value for money if you do not mind not being downtown.

We chose this Staybridge Suites hotel because we know the brand, found the location great as it was an easy drive from SFO, and one could easily walk to the BART station to get into San Francisco. We had reserved a one bedroom suite for our 4 day stay, and were "upgraded" to a two bedroom suite on arrival. The suite was huge with two full bedrooms and bathrooms and a hide-a-bed in the living area. It was much more space than my wife and I needed. The hotel had previously been a Summerhiils Suites hotel, and it was showing its age, but it was clean and the staff were very helpful. The windows did not open, probably for sound proofing reasons as the hotel is very close to the airport, but the A/C was OK. The in-room internet access was wired, and did not work for the first two days until they changed their hardware, but the wireless worked in the main reception and dining area.
The breakfasts were very good as were the evening manager's receptions.
Our only issue with the hotel was that we did not receive our Priority Club points for the stay as it was deemed ineligible because the price we paid for the upgraded room was less than the 30% discount threshold to receive points. If they had mentioned that on check-in we probably would not have opted for the upgrade.

Nice value. Location is close to highway system, and hotel is clean. Those criticizing the parking and airplane noise are exaggerating. There was plenty of parking. You could occasionally hear a plane, but at least on the first floor, it was no big deal and we lost no sleep over it. For the money, this was a good stay for our family. The biggest criticism we have is actually the beds, too soft.

However, a good value.

My family and I stayed at this hotel because my wife wanted access to nearby shopping before we left SF. While we found the facility itself to be above average, it was the attitude of the management and staff that really impressed us. They went out of their way to be helpful to us and made our short stay there to be a wondeful one. We would return there in a minute!
