We chose to stay near the airport when visiting S.F., because it was much less expensive than the hotels in the city. We arrived late, after their free shuttle was done for the night, and they reimbursed us for our cab ride to the hotel (Get a receipt from the cabbie!). That was cool! Our room was very nicely decorated and a decent size for our family. The breakfast served every morning until 10am was decent and had a good variety, hot and cold. The seating was tight though. The hostess was very accomodating. There was an indoor pool and exercise area, which we did not use. Our only complaint is the shuttle. We decided to take the BART to downtown and needed to take the shuttle to the airport in order to catch it. They share the shuttle with several other hotels and when it got to our hotel, there were about 15 people waiting for it and only 4 seats available. We were lucky to get them, because we had no luggage, since there was no more room for luggage either. It created quite a commotion and there apparently is no "backup" plan to run another bus when they are full, even though Hampton Inn had there own bus in the parking lot. The bus was supposed to make one more stop after the Hampton Inn, but just skipped it because we were full. It runs every 20 minutes during peak times and every 40 minutes at other times until midnight. When we returned to the airport from downtown via BART to catch the shuttle at the airport, it took about 40 minutes for it to come. In all, it is a quality hotel. I think if most ideal for those with a car.

Would definitely stay here again. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet -- perhaps it wasn't on the airport side. Took the free shuttle to the motel and back again the next morning.

Our family of four recently booked a night at the Hampton Inn because of it's proximity to SFO and the long term parking it offered. We also chose this hotel because we wanted an indoor pool for our teenagers to use. We found our room to be very nicely decorated and quite clean. Unfortunately the TV reception did not work for the local channels and we couldn't watch my husband's favorite show, 60 minutes. When I complained to the man at the desk I was told that we could just watch the show in the lobby. We also found out the pool was out of order. When we went next door for dinner at the Embassy Suites we asked if we could use their pool and they were very accomodating. (Yeah!!!! Embassy Suites!!!) Hampton Inn did allow us to switch rooms where there was a working TV but we had to insist. This room was also very clean, quiet, and up-dated. Hampton Inn, make it a priority to keep your amenities in good working order!!!!!
