“Excellent stop-over”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

Stayed 1 night after arriving in evening from Europe. This is an impressively well managed hotel, and it shows. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and tidy and the staff are helpful and friendly. Spacious room, comfortable bed with choice of pillows and useful amenities incl. coffee maker, hairdryer, fridge, desk and office chair, free wi-fi. Enjoyed the new cotton sheets and ample towels. Bathroom fine, with good in-bath shower. Modern building, light and airy with view of bay & airport on one side and manicured garden to rear. Didn't use spa/gym facilities but we took an interesting walk along a water-side path with birds and wildlife that runs by the hotel. Breakfast was good quality and copious. Airport shuttle runs every 30 mins and takes 10-12 minutes. Not the height of luxury but a very comfortable place for a short stay and great value at the advance purchase rate.

What a great hotel. Staff was so nice and accommodating. Everything was clean, and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub
every night after a long day in the city. Quiet hotel. Loved having a fridge. in the room. Restaurant food was quite tasty, however, one night we were looking forward to their great hamburgers, and they were out of hamburger. Ice maker by the elevator always had ice. Nice hotel for kids, my daughter "Loved" this place, especially the pool, and top floor view of the bay from our window. Very convenient to the airport, and we drove into San Francisco every day. We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 days in SF. Can't wait to come back. Thanks for making our stay in SF wonderful!!

Room Tip: Top floor has better view over other buildings to see the bay. The GPS of our Android google maps...

This is a nice Hilton hotel with very nice grounds and lose to the airport. The room is clean and staff friendly. When I took the free shuttle from the airport to the hotel, the driver got lazy and told me to get off at a nearby hotel and walk to the garden inn. I reported it to the front desk and hey immediately apologized and then called the driver and chewed him out. I recommend this hotel.

The garden inn hotels by hilton are as fine as any of the major hilton hotels we have stayed in, from palm springs to san francisco. For a couple of nights we look for a decent price, good location, clean and quiet. This meets all our needs plus microwave and fridge. Check in service was smooth and fast. I asked that our room not be next to the ice machine or elevator due to noise. The desk lady said "sorry, but the only room available is next to both." A man assisting her took over and immediately found another room. That is the kind of service we look for. We don't need large rooms with fancy bathrooms. This is a successful formula they use..good price, clean, quiet; meets our needs 100%.

We over-nighted there because we had an early check-in for a 08.00 flight to Europe and didn't want any delays getting out of the City due to the Marathon.

Nice friendly staff, clean room, nice desk for work, do-it-yourself laundry facilities (it was nice to go home with CLEAN laundry!), quick and efficient room service.

I was getting some laundry change at the front desk and I overheard one of the desk agents tell a walk in what the rack rate was - which was $60 less than the price I booked online (thanks, Hilton 'best rate'). I mentioned this to the agent helping me, and she immediately offered the lower rate. That was nice, still - check your pricing, folks.

I ordered the 'B&B' option when I booked...it was about $10 additional (total) for two of us. I think if we had ordered our breakfast a la carte, it would have been about $40 total...so B&B is a good way to go, when offered.

The place was packed with folks headed to the 49er game (even at 06.00)...it was a fun atmosphere - yet still quiet.

Overall, a good experience.

Room Tip: Elevators can get busy...try the ground floor.

Very consistent w/ HGI's all over the country. Clean, comfortable. The service was competent (if a bit distracted). Free, fast internet. Clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Surprisingly little airplane noise!

The rates were a bit on the high side, but hey, it's the Bay Area...

Location is very good. Near SFO (5 min). Easy trip into the city (drive to the BART station at Millbrae and take an $8 round trip + $2 for parking).

For food/fun, drive over the 101 into Burlingame (< 5 min). Nice small town feel. I suggest the Steelhead Brewery on California. Park across the street in the Caltrans parking...

Room Tip: High-floors on East side have partial views of incoming/outgoing aircraft - pretty cool if you'r...

Although the room rate is higher than in other hotels in the same area, it is excellent value for money. The hotel is in close proximity to SFO and provides free bus shuttle connection. The rooms are clean and spacious, beds are comfortable and wifi is free. The hotel has a small Laundromat, a good gym and a small pool. Our dinner at the restaurant was also fine. Service was friendly and efficient. I would definitely choose this hotel again.
