Perfect for the airport and a neat out-of-city overnighter. Past experience of HoJo's was mixed but this place is excellent in every way from the spotlessly clean and fully equipped rooms, the new comfy beds and bedding to the extremely helpful and professional staff. Secured parking, airport shuttle and walking distance to downtown restaurants and 24-hr Walgreens. Would absolutely recommend this particular HoJo's as the best value in town. The owners and staff are clearly, and quite rightly, proud of their hotel.

My wife and I travel to the San Francisco area about five times per year for medical issues. We stayed at this Howard Johnson several months ago as we searched for a compromise between value, location and quality. We have stay at various hotels in Half Moon Bat, Pacifica, Daly City and South San Francisco and have returned to this facility in San Bruno for the second time. The search is over and we will make this our home away for all future trips to the San Francisco area.

This was our second time in HOJO hotel in San Bruno. Did not disappoint us this time either. Would come here again.
Room is huge. Ammenities coffee maker, micro wave, fridge are good and clean
Bathroom is very clean and shower has good water pressure.
Rooms are silent and beds huge and firm.
In the morning you have opportunity to have breakfast bananas, apples, toasts, coffee, muffins etc. Basic but ok.
Staff at the desk are helpful and the hotel has its own carage. Convinient I would say!

We were in town over the weekend for a family function. Everything was good. Was bummed there was no pool or fitness center, but I knew that upon booking so I was ok with it. The parking kinda sucks, especially if there's a full house. The location was convenient because it was about 10 mins from the airport and 5 mins away from where we needed to be. There were only minor issues. Overall, we enjoyed our stay :)!

Joe who checked us in took very good care of us during our overnight stay. He recommended a local restaurant for us to have lunch. He provided transportation options for us getting to and from Oakland. We were traveling via BART to the Oakland Coliseum to see a ball game this evening.

Continental breakfast was okay, just he basics, no real hot breakfast food.
