The only good thing to be said about this facility is it is close to the rent car return at SFO. Although this location is convenient to the airport, nothing else such as good restaurants, is close. They tried to charge me the rack rate when I checked in even though I had reserved at a different rate. The room was clean but needing renovation, especially the bathroom. The AC dried out the air rather than cooling it. Breakfast advertised as "deluxe" was good enough but was more continental than "deluxe" and served in the very small lobby with only two small tables. We would not return to this facility.

Yikes where do i start. The front dest worker Chris was the start of a great experience and a great stay here at the Howard Johnson express. As a student who travels quite often due to conferences i have stayed at many motels, hotels, holiday inns, you name it, but this place tops them right from the start. Chris had a great spirit, open personality, and did not show any annoyance when we asked him questions. He answered them to the best of his abilities with a conversation style feel as if we built report with each other.

The room was nice, very clean, and offered a very simple shuttle system to and from the airport while all other transportation support went through Chris. The room was past standard in my eyes. For less the $90 my room came with the normal setup (tv, beds, at least 4 walls) but this room came with a microwave, ironing board, fridge and much more.

To say the least it was a great experience

Room Tip: Buy your rooms early you can get good deals on rooms because they get $$$$ fast

Chris who works at the front desk is amazing. He was extremely friendly and helpful, he provided us with information about local restaurants, the transportation systems, and activities we could do while in downtown SF. Without his help we would have been clueless of the best ways to get around without spending a fortune. The hotel itself was nice. The room is clean and not cramped with unnecessary furniture. The location is nice, free shuttle to the airport/ BART station, walking distance to nice restaurants. Due to the hospitality of Chris and the other staff members as well as the comfort of the room and location, I will plan to stay at this hotel again. I was very pleased with this experience.
