Great service is alive and well at Howard Johnson Express in South Sanfrancisco. The Management and staff work diligently at making you feel at home. Everyone goes above and beyond to assure your stay is the best possible. Their professionalism and willingness to assist with all of your travel needs is evident. The free shuttle service and other modes of transportation make this location very convenient to get around easily. The rooms are kept clean, free breafast and many additional ammenities make this hotel a "must to return to". Thank You, Adam C.

I had to travel to SF for my sister's wedding, and was extremely strapped for cash. Needless to say, I picked the cheapest motel I could find. I was expecting it to be your average run-down cheap motel, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got there! My experience started with the check in process, which blew me away!

Jerry helped us out, and was extremely helpful and friendly. He had a great sense of humor (which was great after our 7 hour drive!) and went out of his way to make us feel at home.

The room was great! It was nothing special, but considering the price it was a great value. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable! I slept very well, and didn't want to get out of bed in the morning.

I'm glad I did wake up, however, because I was able to catch the free breakfast. I love food, so this was easily the best part of my stay. When I heard they serve continental breakfast, I wasn't expecting much, maybe a packaged pastry and stale coffee at best. They actually had a pretty impressive spread, though! They had freshly cooked eggs, oatmeal, bagels, muffins, juice, and most important, FRESH coffee! :)

The girl working the front desk in the morning was awesome! I believe her name was Anjuli. She was ridiculously helpful with everything, and had a very warm personality. Definitely a great way to wake up in the morning! She made us fresh coffee when we asked, and seemed very happy to help us out.

Overall, I was very satisfied with my stay, and would highly recommend this location to anybody who wants great value for a low price.

Thanks HOJO!

Great place for what my budget was , I like how it was closed to everything I needed shops and stores.etc. service , complementary breakfast was a plus! Parking at night should have more spaces... Other than that OH... Free WiFi! Nice.

I heard of this Park-and-Fly package from my colleague and it was excellent. I took a vacation to China for 19 days and used this service and I have nothing but all the good words to say about the service and the friendness of the staff. Vicky in particular, she booked our room, took care of our rides to and from the airport and safeguarded our car the all time. We were one day late back from China but she showed a lot of the understanding for us, international travellers. We felt very welcome back. I recomment this hotel to everyone.
