We discovered very quickly that San Francisco is a very expensive city to stay in. We were there 4 days and wanted something reasonable, clean, free breakfast, and close to a BART station. This hotel fit the bill. You are literally 5 minutes from the airport. The BART is a few miles away with ample parking. The breakfast is good...

As mid-westerners who travel to the West Coast for conferences, we find ourselves in the position of taking a very late flight and arriving in SF around midnight before the meetings begin the next day. We're generally looking for a place to sleep and to do some prepping for the next day. We prefer not to pay downtown prices for...

We chose this hotel because of its location. We were heading home and just wanted to get near the airport because we had a very early flight. They offer a shuttle service. We returned our rental car to the airport and called for a shuttle back to the airport. It took way too long (45 min). I had to call...

Stayed here for only two nights while on a business trip, and with my family joining. The building like most of the other hotels in the area, is old and aging. Some renovation must have taken place long ago, but the rooms and general layout make the place feel extremely old and dull. The rooms are okay, but nothing beyond...
