“great hotel for great price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

Super comfortable bed!!! Friendly staff!! Great price! Awesome location if you want to be near downtown SF without paying SF hotel prices. We usually stay at the Crowne Plaza, but Larkpur Landing is more spacious, comfortable and cheaper and includes free parking. They even offer a complimentary shuttle to Pier 39 on Fridays and Saturdays if you don't have a car. From now on, Larkspur Landing will be our hotel when we come to the Bay Area to visit family and friends!! Trust me you won't be disappointed! One last thing, if you are afraid of animals/ don't like animals, and are worried about staying here because this is a pet friendly hotel, don't worry; I didn't even realize this was a pet friendly hotel until I read the other reviews. We didn't see or hear any animals the whole time we were there. Can't wait to go back!

The good.....

1. Price point is reasonable, not great but ok for what you get
2. It is located in an area close to 101 freeway, near airport and candlestick park
3. Check in was friendly and speedy
4. Rooms are nondescript with a small kitchen area, furnishing is on the level of a courtyard or holiday inn express.
5. Provided me with a little welcome basket with coffee pack, tea bags, trail mix, kasha bar and small ghiradelli chocolate square


The not so good...

1. Fitness facility is a sleeping room packed with 1 recombinant bike, 1 treadmill, some dumbbell weights. The pic they use on the website is not that of the room, so a little deceptive advertising. The spa is a small whirlpoolt outside the fitness room. It can probably fit 3 people at most. The equipment was full of dried sweat and didn't appear to have been cleaned in awhile
2. Breakfast was included in my room cost. It was adequate, but was set up in the lobby, so there is limited seating. It includes bread, cereal, whole fruit, yogurt, pastries. It is your typical edible but not high quality continental breakfast.

This is a nice, clean hotel at a reasonable price.

I booked through TravelNow.com and called them on the phone to ask about my pet to make sure there wouldn't be any problems. There was no mention about any pet fees even though I asked about them. When I checked in there was no mention of pet fees. However, when asking to have no maid service just to make sure there wouldn't be any problems while I was at my meeting the desk clerk mentioned they would have to charge me a $75 pet fee. When I informed the desk clerk I had asked about pet fees when I booked the trip and was told there would be none, she said you'll have to take that up with Travelnow. I could have saved money if I had kenneled my dog.

The hotel website lists the kitchen as a full kitchen. There is no stove and only two plates and bowls. Plan on doing dishes after every meal.

Perhaps they would like to change the kitchen from full kitchen to kitchenette and make it clear they have a substantial pet fee to Travelnow and Expedia.

Larkspur Landing, South San Francisco is a pet friendly hotel. Many of our guests and their pets take advantage our pet package which is design to make you and your pet feel right at home. The package for your pet includes a few healthy snacks, a dog leash, Tennis ball (to keep them fit and happy) and bedding based on request. Additionally, the convenience of having the first floor dedicated to pet owners makes it convenient to access the outdoors for all of your activities. There is a pet charge of $75.00 dollars per stay to cover additional cleaning. If you have any special request or questions please feel free to contact the hotel directly.

Bummer I couldn't stay in San Francisco on my last trip, but I did find a comfortable hotel in South San Francisco. This is an all suites hotel with kitchenettes and my room had a separate bedroom. They do have shuttle service to and from the airport and the staff said their driver could take me into South San Francisco for dinner. Since I needed a car to commute into the city for work, I was relieved that the parking was free. The hotel was rather quiet, even though the airport was nearby - good job soundproofing. Breakfast was included but it was not worth wasting calories on. Thankfully I had leftovers from the restaurant the night before (see review on Buon Gusto, yum!).

Room Tip: My room was quiet and comfortable but not a good view, if that's important to you.

Great pet friendly hotel, Room is very clean, spacious, bed is very comfy, bathroom was plenty of bath towels. Conveniently included a kitchenette with fridge, stove and microwave. Complimentary continental breakfast is great with varieties of healthy food such as multi grain toast, pastries, yogurt, fruit, juice. Most important super pet friendly.

We have stayed at Larkspur Landing many times when visiting family in San Francisco. We enjoy the kitchen facilities with each room, but always have a difficult time making ourselves at home because of the bedding. Both my husband and I have allergies and I am even allergic to pets. We always try to ask for a room without down bedding and preferably a room that has not had a pet. First of all, they don't differentiate their pet friendly rooms from those that are not. That makes it very difficult for those that are very sensitive to dander, which can get on walls, carpets, into the bed itself (not to mention the pillows and other bedding). Secondly, they have always had the down comforter on the bed no matter how much we try to get away from it. They advertise that they are willing to get new pillows and bedding for those that need hypoallergenic supplies, but it is nearly impossible to actually get them. So, when we stay there we have to go to the additional pain of bringing sleeping bags and our own pillows. It seems like a lot to go through when we're not actually camping!

In addition to these issues, their breakfast has been lacking. Great for a snack, but don't expect it to last long.

We chose Larkspur Landing hotel because it closed to airport and Candlestick park (we were there for NFC championship wknd.) Room is very clean, spacious, bed is very comfy, bathroom was plenty of bath towels. Conveniently included a kitchenette with fridge, stove and microwave. Complimentary continental breakfast is great with varieties of healthy food such as multi grain toast, pastries, yogurt, fruit, juice...

The only complaint is, somehow, our room didn't cleaned on Sunday (we stayed here Sat & Sun).
We highly recommended this hotel to everyone, specially, to family travel with children.

A 24hrs INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PANCAKE is nearby.
