Hampton Inn San Francisco-Airport

Everything went well during my stay here. Front desk clerk could tell I had serious back pain, so she offered me a jacuzzi room since I was an HH member. Hotel was clean and rooms had nice amenities and good beds. Wish I had been there for breakfast -- but my flight left so early that I was on the 4:20 am shuttle. Ouch! They gave me a breakfast bag to go, though I'm sure it's nowhere near as nice as the real deal...

This Hampton was perfect and served us well. The room was clean, fresh, updated with flat screen TV's. Typical comfy Hampton bed and breakfast was a good spread. Staff were all friendly and very helpful. Just a quick walk to the Cal train station to get downtown San Francisco. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Stayed at this Hampton Inn in preparation for an early morning flight from SFO. Everything was well done, as usual for a Hampton Inn. The room was clean and comfortable, and the service was good. The airport shuttle was timely and efficient, although if you are catching a flight, pay close attention to the schedule (i.e., the time it takes to get from the hotel to the terminals). The shuttle stops at other hotels on the way to the airport, which is not a problem, just be aware of the schedule (which can be found at the front desk) and plan accordingly.

We did not have the breakfast because of our early flight, but no reason to think it was different from any other Hampton Inn. Some minor complaints......the toilet flushing was very loud (not kidding - this thing sounded like the space shuttle launching), and the shower head is mounted very high (my 5"3" wife could not reach it).

One mistake on our part which we will not repeat, but beware of......we booked a room with a whirlpool. At other Hamptons in which we've stayed, this meant a two person tub in the room. At this hotel, it means a standard one person tub with some jets. We will ask next time to be clear.

Best place to stay in SF!
PROS: Reasonable price for SF... delicious HOT breakfast... In-door pool... FREE parking... FREE shuttle to airport (you can take BART into downtown- NO hassle of paying parking fees, driving thru crowded streets, getting lost, etc).. comfortable beds... large rooms... nice views
CONS: By airport (can be kind of loud- it didn't bother me though since I was out & about all day)... need car to go get food/ not close to restaurants.. kinda of small bathroom

We brought a group of high school students from Montreal to visit San Francisco, Los Angeles and the Grand Canyon. For our 2 nights in San Francisco, we stayed at this Hampton inn near the airport. Since we had a coach bus at our disposition, it was easy to get to the city to do our sightseeing. However, they have a shuttle to the Bart Station if you want to get to the city.

This hotel was perfect for our teenagers. They had a plentiful and excellent breakfast. Some of them were so impressed with their waffle machine! They were also happy with the 2 computers with free internet access and the free wi-fi.

I was with 2 of my colleagues and we were impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, the comfortable beds and the quiet of the hotel at night.

Overall, I recommend this hotel chain to anyone. They have excellent prices and delivers on all fronts.

This hotel was typical of all Hampton Inns, which, as another reviewer said, is a good thing. My husband and I think the beds at Hampton Inn are the best--in fact, I think we'll order one when it's time to buy a new bed for home! The breakfast here wasn't great, but the lobby area was large and the breakfast area was separated, which was nice. The refrigerator in the room was handy for keeping beverages cold. Overall, a great stay.
