Reviewed 3 August 2012

Great locale to SFO. We were leery, seeing that the hotel is on a main drag, but were more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Super 8. Convenient to a luring Mexican restaurant, easy driving access to parks on SF Bay to get in some exercise, a well stocked breakfast bar, and friendly staff. Safe parking in the back, easy in and out to SFO car rental drop off, and a bargain. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Have only stayed in one room, it was more than comfortable.

BaHotel is located right on El Camino Real, a busy commercial street in the west Bay Area. Had a room on the second floor. With window closed there was some street noise but not too bad. Room amenities include microwave, small frig, iron and ironing board, flat-screen tv with Dish satellite stations. Free wifi, with good signal in room. Clean, comfortable room. Location is not close to much of anything - you'll need a car to get anywhere except SF Airport (hotel has a shuttle). If you're looking for ambiance in the hotel and/or location look elsewhere, but for reasonably priced accommodations this is not a bad choice.

We stayed at this hotel after dropping off a hire car for a place to rest before getting on a very early morning flight from San Francisco.

The hotel is located close to the San Bruno Caltrain Station and about 2 minutes from the freeway that runs past San Francisco Airport.

The hotel was easy to locate on the main street of San Bruno. The staff were very helpful and very easy to deal with.

The hotel itself is basic, but clean and comfortable. The rooms are large with a very large bed. The bed was comfortable. The room has a TV with many channels to choose from which was good considering there isn't allot of places to visit in San Bruno and perfect for a nights rest before heading off to your next destination.

The bathroom was large with a combined spa/shower. The only real criticism is that you may have a little difficulty getting in and out of the spa so you may want to be careful and ensure you don't slip particularly if you're taking a shower.

They do offer breakfast, however as we had to leave early the next morning we left before breakfast opened. There is a shuttle bus to the airport that runs from very early in the morning and was very easy to catch and the driver helpful and friendly.

The main street of San Bruno does have some restaurants but ensure you leave early for dinner as the nice looking mexican place about a block away was closed when we went out.

I would happily stay at this airport hotel again, however given the basic nature and location would not recommend for long stays. Good price, friendly staff, very easy and excellent hotel airport.

We stayed here for one night before going into San Francisco and found it to be a great place. The staff is very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. There is a laundry room on the main level and free breakfast as well. We walked to the mall, about 20 minutes, for dining options but opted for the Chili's along the way. There is a Mexican restaurant right next door to the hotel. It smelled great walking by and it was busy inside but we didn't feel like Mexican that night. We would stay here again.

This hotel was clean, comfortable & pleasant. The front desk staff was very nice upon arrival and the hotel grounds & lobby were clean & inviting. Our room was clean & fresh, even the hallway had a nice fresh scent. The room could have used a deep clean (a few scuffs on the walls) but overall it was a very nice room. The bedding was soft and smelled fresh and the pillows were fluffy. The hotel parking lot is fenced and behind the building and seemed very secure.
Next door to the hotel is a fabulous Mexican restaurant. We (unfortunately) went into the city for dinner, but ordered to-go dessert from next door. The food smelled super yummy and we will be trying it next time. The overall neighborhood of the hotel is nice, there is a Walgreens at the corner and San Bruno Ave a few blocks away is a nice few blocks to stroll with lots of food & cute shops.
I come to SF Airport about 6 times a year and I am glad to have found this spot! I will be staying here from now on :)

I've sayed at this location on several occasions because it was close to my Aunts home.
The staff are pleasant enough, breakfast was good but very small eating area with not many tables and chairs.
I was disappointed the last time I stayed as I forgot my wrist brace that I wear to bed at night. After many emails and phone calls....hard to get an answer as to wear my brace would be, the blame seemed to be on me!!
The way they took care of this situation I will definetly never go back to this location!!

This review is a comparison to the San Bruno HoJo, another highly rated local hotel.

I stayed at the HoJo San Bruno 10 days prior due to the tripadvisor ratings and this hotel puts that one to shame.This hotel is WAY more updated (flatscreen w HBO Vs tube TV w limited selection), has more amenities, has a bigger parking lot (less covered spaces but more spots and easier to maneuver), has a better breakfast (can you say Waffles!), and is closer to the airport than the San Bruno HoJos.
Very impressed with the cleanliness of this place as well. The best part? Ended up costing me less than the HoJo's! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were on 2nd floor. Only one elevator and its slow so you might want to stick to the ground floor...
