Hampton Inn San Francisco-Airport
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We spent only one night right after Thanksgiving, but did not know lobby area would be totally under renovation. Even the staff had to reassign our room number after discovering we could not get to it due to construction. We had reserved an upgraded room with a jacuzzi. Obviously it had not been used for some time as the on/off switch barely worked, and when it finally came on all kinds of brown bubbles appeared in the bath water.

Room Tip: You might want to ask if the hotel is still under renovation.

The lobby was being remodeled while we were there. But they are working quickly and it should be completed by the end of November. Overall a very decent place to stay. Not really in walking distance to anything. But it is very convenient to the freeway. The breakfast was really quite good though not as good as an Embassy Suite, but far better than most chains. Very quiet, nicely decorated, excellent shower pressure. Manager was very accommodating.

Stayed here for 3 days in November. Typical Hampton - Clean, comfortable beds, free breakfast, free parking, and good price for value. Would stay here again when in SF. Hotels in downtown SF charge $40 and up for parking.

I stay at Hilton brand properties about 60 nights a year; first time at this property. Overall, looks very new, nice staff at the desk. Rooms are the normal ones for Hampton Inn, no surprises. Location is very close to the airport, great for early morning departures and noise was not a problem. Breakfast was as expected, parking was easy, no complaints.

The one thing you need to know if you are not getting a rental car, is there is a shuttle from the airport, it runs about every 20 minutes, it will be the only Black Shuttle bus with five hotels listed on the side. You can also use this shuttle to ran from the hotel to the Bart Station at the Airport, you need to get off at the international terminal. Plan on getting Downtown about an hour after you leave the hotel. It is less than $10 oneway, using Bart to get into town.
The breakfast area is small, and is not ready at 6, more like 6:15 before every thing is out. You will hear the planes taking off from the airport.
There is a place to eat close by, just ask at the front desk.
The hotel is located in a business park, so there is no worries about having to put up panhandlers like in San Francisco.

I was a little concerned about the location of this hotel. It is about 10 miles south of the city. But highway access was very easy and it is a straight shot to the city.

I REALLY liked the lady at the front desk (forgot her name, but she is Asian). Very helpful. I had two rooms and my guests checked in before I did and she was very accomodating.

Rooms were nice. Pretty typical Hampton Inn. The pool is closed so be aware of that. My kids were disappointed but we didn't have time anyway.

They do have a shuttle to Fisherman's Wharf on Fridays and Saturdays. I was planning on using it but it fills up fast. May want to have a Plan B.

I would definitely stay here agin.

Room Tip: Shuttle to Fisherman's Wharf fills up fast so have a backup plan to get downtown.

Traveling with 6 people-two rooms on the first floor. Refrigerator and microwave came in handy. Everyone was pleased with the complimentary breakfast. Plenty of free parking. A great spot to jump off from to visit SFO. The staff is outrageously fabulous!!! So friendly and accommodating. No airport noise. Beds were great. Plenty of restaurants in the immediate area.

Room Tip: King suites are very nice and comfortable.
