I arrived late 5/19, they gave me a room on first floor at end of hallway. Didn't think much because I was tired from delayed flight. In the am when I checked out, I walked though rooms that's have numerous mattresses. It was odd to me but I was rushing out to the city. The next day, these red spot...

We had a good rate (despite the fact that parking is charged an extra 12USD + tax), so it suited us fine, but the place isnot worth what it asks for at full price. The toilet was running in our room and the coffee machine not working. We asked for bith things to be fixed, but nothing happened for 3...

Clean room and common area. Comfortable bad. Quiet room, and comfortable bed. A bit lower than 3* hotels, and some touch up or renovation would improve the appearance, but if you are not fussy, you have a decent hotel for a better than average price in San Francisco. I order some food from a restaurant in the area (plenty of...

This very nice hotel in South San Francisco is right next to the airport (rental car return) and shopping areas. We spent one night in those good and quiet rooms with a very nice bed and well adjusted air conditioning. Some very friendly receptionist welcomed our small group and requested unnecessary 12 $ for parking over night. In our motel...

I spent 3 nights at the Hotel Focus in SF while at a conference. There was a issue with my billing but the hotel took care of all of it. George (the Assistant GM) was especially helpful and personally called me to let me know the issue had been cleared up and to make sure I was satisfied. The hotel...

A nice find! Looked at SFO hotels $250 to $450 per night plus parking at $40-$60 per night. Older motel that has been completely refurbished, with benefits not found at upscales, and only $96 / night. Desk clerk, Oscar, EXTREMELY accommodating and helpful. Free WiFi with strong signal and multiport charging Station. Elevator worked well but is very vintage. Everything...

Close to the airport and a Denny's - so really - what more do you need? Oh well, good price, simple but sufficient breakfast, good service and actually a very nice room with wifi and all in shampoos etc. Would book again for an SFO overnight. Shuttle service works great.

After 6 hour drive from Tule Lake, needed a place to stay before I caught an early morning flight the next day. Chose this hotel for it's proximity to the airport and price.
