Larkspur Landing South San Francisco
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Other than the location & price being Ok, the room was small & not too comfortable. The breakfast room was not set up for eating. Only one table and some couches. They could do a MUCH better job with the space they have. I would rather gone to Hampton Inn for a little bit more. Also, lots of airplane noise.

Nice rooms and staff
Good beds and clean
They do need to add electrical outlets like other business oriented hotels but relaxing stay that was convenient & well priced! There are several hotels in this chain and I also liked the other one I visited!

Im going to start with the bad stuff:Upon entering our room you couldn't help but notice the smell. I'm still not sure what it was from but it was just unpleasant. Our pillows were terrible. The second day no one ever came to clean our room, so we had no clean towels etc. Upon bringing this to the front desks attention he didn't seem bothered by this as if it happens all the time. We literally ran out of toilet paper twice and I mean stuck on the toilet with no more paper. Again we went down to the front desk to ask for more toilet paper. You would think they would leave a spare roll when they service the room. The bedding kind of smells. I'm not sure what it is, kind of like the smell when you don't dry things thoroughly. They do offer a continental breakfast until 9 am. You really have to beat the clock while on vacation here because it stops at 9 and even 8:50 one day. Oh well, you snooze you lose I guess. It's not very good anyway. The location is near the airport but there is nothing decent to eat in the area so you really have to go into San Francisco to eat. It's mostly an industrial area. They do have a jacuzzi but it only fits 2 people so we didn't bother.
The good news: they do have cookies at check in sometimes but its a hit and miss to get one. And they usually have apples. There is a laundry area to wash clothes and its free. All in all we just really didn't enjoy staying here and won't be back. The location alone is kind of a bad deal and I really feel like we paid too much for what we got.I don't mind paying these prices, I just expect more for these prices.

Room Tip: If you stay here its really noisy to stay on the first floor because you hear people walking around...

Excellent customer service. Free laundry service was such a nice surprise. Friendly hotel staff, comfortable beds and rooms. With a rental car, it was easy to get to and from SF. And we were able to avoid the high hotel prices and crowds in the city. Will be back!!

The two things that appealed to me about the Larkspur Landing in South San Francisco was the free parking and the available laundry room for guests (free!). I then realized that prices were really reasonable, so we went ahead and stayed here for 3 nights.

Check-in was a bit clumsy and slow, but the man at the desk was nice. The room was more than adequate--full kitchen, clean, comfy bed (I do hate those strange flat fluffy hotel pillows, but that's a personal preference), and an adequate bathroom for two people.

There was one point where we smelled marijuana coming from one of the rooms on our floor. Can't pick your neighbors.

There was always fresh cold water with fruit downstairs, and at times, warm cookies (you have to catch them at the right time in the afternoon.) The breakfast was very simple, but will probably fill you up if you're not picky. If you're on a low carb diet, or need gluten free foods, you'll probably have to go out for breakfast. I was able to put together a nice banana, peanut butter, and greek yogurt breakfast one morning. That was really healthy. The coffee was always great. We brought it back to our room to eat, as there's only one little table to eat.

There's a little spa big enough for two people, and I utilized the exercise room once. It was sufficient.

Overall, this was the best bang for our buck we could find near SF, and we would definitely come back.

This property will undoubtedly be my home base for any future visits to SFO airport. It was a terrific price, with excellent decor, easy (and close) parking, a beautiful lobby/breakfast area, and incredibly spacious suite rooms. Breakfast itself was among the best we've had. We really, really enjoyed it.

Room was very spacious, comfy and close to the airport. Has a pool and a fitness room. Internet was fast and free. TV was flat and big and had all important channels.
Would recommend it to anybody, and will surely stay again if I need an airport hotel in SF. In-house
