Hampton Inn San Francisco-Airport
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 18, 2008

Stayed here the night before an early SFO flight back east. It works out very well to dump the rental car the night before and use the hotel shuttle. The shuttle runs from 4 am till very late. Since it drops you off in front of the airline it saves a lot of time in the morning.

The staff was very nice and very helpful with scheduling of shuttle and flight times - the shuttle runs in a continual loop so there is always one on the way.

Due to the shortness of our stay we didn't get to try out any of the amenities - but the alarm clock and wake up call were terrific.

The Hampton Inn in South San Francisco California is picturesque, clean, and comfortable. The hotel staff is friendly and approachable. We enjoyed our one-night stay there complete with a complimentary breakfast buffet that served hot items, such as sausage and eggs, and a free shuttle ride to the airport. The only drawback to staying at this hotel is the unavailability of food after breakfast. We arrived late on a Saturday night. We received a complimentary snack box, but it does not make a meal for two weary travelers. The gift shop and vending machines had paltry offerings. We called two local pizzerias in an attempt to have something delivered, but were met with appallingly rude customer service. If you happen to stay at this hotel and you're without a car, be prepared to take a cab to forage for food before you get too tired.

We were in town for a family wedding and found the hotel to meet our needs. We had a fabulous room close to the breakfast room, pool and fitness room. We were provided with a variety for breakfast. Eggs, sausage, biscuits, variety of breads, juices, fresh fruit and cereals. Our room was impeccably clean. That's very important to me! The beds were comfortable and had beautiful white duvets. The room kept a comfortable temperature and it came with a microwave/fridge. I have 3 young children so it was great that I could utilize their guest laundry room. My kids enjoyed the indoor swimming pool too! We also recieved wonderful service from all the friendly staff. We all enjoyed our stay at the Hampton Inn and would definitely stay there again when we visit our family.

I was very surprised at how nice our stay was. I booked this place off of reviews from tripadvisor members at the last minute because we were going to the bay. It's close to major attractions in San Francisco ( Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Downtown ). We were also going to Burlingame to see the PEZ Museum, which is a must see if you are in the bay.
I booked a room with 2 queen beds and it wasn't ready so they up graded me to a room with a king and sofa bed which was fine and didn't charge me extra. The room was spacious, there was free internet service, a refrigerator and microwave in room. There is a inside pool and weight room. Breakfast had a nice variety, eggs, ham, muffins, bagels, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and more.
Check-out and in was quick and easy. Plenty of parking. Not to much around except other hotels, there was a gas station and restaurant a little ways down the road and a small drive away takes you to town where there are plenty of places to shop.
I really can't think of anything negative to say, we will stay here again.

We stayed here after finding the Marriott opposite to be too pricey. This place was clean and newly done out.

The room was very spacious and quiet considering you are right under planes taking off.

The door to the bathroom was (as another review mentions) annoying in that it kept slamming shut. Our room was right by the lift which seemed to make an irritating beeping noise everytime the doors shut or opened which was pretty frequently.

Most of the guests here seemed to be on business rather than pleasure. The breakfast was the usual cereals, muffins, toast, fruit, coffee, tea & juice and there was plenty of choice. The area for breakfast felt more like a foyer than a restaurant.

There was free internet access which was pretty unusual in hotels during our trip and was great for booking the hotels which we were planning on staying in further down the coast.

Stayed with my family the night before an early flight. The airport shuttle runs every 1/2 hour and from our experience, was on time. The room was small and the air conditioner leaked on the carpet. I didn't find the bathroom exceptionally clean - it was small and because the vanity area was in the main part of the room, it was not possible to get ready without waking others. We left too early for the breakfast but the coffee was fresh. The people at the front desk were helpful. I would call this a very average stay that was a bit pricey for the accommodations - we paid $170 with tax. I'm sure we could have been just as comfortable at a much lower pricetag.
