Comfort Inn & Suites San Francisco Airport North
Reviewed 7 June 2011

Stayed here with girlfriend for vacation. Ideal location if you are planning on renting a car; easy access from the airport, just off of the highway, and fifteen minutes on the freeway to downtown SF. Hotel staff was courteous, and the early starting continental breakfast (starts at 6:30am every day) was convenient to get day underway. Also, $4 for parking beats the majority of hotels in the downtown core, many of whom either offer no parking at all or charge through the roof for whatever is available. Rooms were clean, with outdoor access right outside your door. Great value for the rate ($70/night) and will definitely stay again!

Room Tip: If light sleeper, ask 4 rm away from railway side

I stayed at this hotel with my parents (their choice) because it was cheap and had a free shuttle to/from SFO airport.

Even though it was inexpensive, it was NOT a good deal! There were other hotels for similar prices yet that were way nicer in the area.

Also, the free shuttle to/from the airport was supposed to come every 30 minutes. We waited 55 minutes AFTER calling the hotel (technically the shuttle is just supposed to come/doesn't need to be called) before the shuttle finally came. This was frustrating as we saw about 4 of each of the other hotel shuttles in the time it took for our shuttle to finally arrive. My parents took the shuttle to SFO airport and it took them so long to get there (the hotel is the first stop and it proceeds to pick up passengers at about 5 other hotels FYI before taking you to the airport and the shuttle goes to all of the domestic terminals first before the international terminal) so since my parents were going to the International terminal it took them over 90 minutes to get to the airport and they were glad they left early otherwise they would have been late!

The hotel is right off the freeway and next to the train tracks so you hear the traffic and trains at all hours of the night/morning. Also the hotel is old and has horrible sound proofing so you hear the people above and on either side of you as well as the people walking by to get to their rooms. Despite being exhausted from our flight back from Europe, we were only about to get about 4 hours of sleep despite going to bed at 9pm and finally getting out of bed at 7am (so we should have had 10 hours sleep instead of 4)!

The hotel doesn't feel that safe and had I been traveling alone or just myself with another female I would have felt very creeped out. Our room was on the ground floor (as are 1/2 and the others are on the 2nd floor) and there are no interior corridors nor gate around the property so anyone can just walk up to your room. Also, the hotel offers a park & ride service however the parking where you leave your car while on vacation is not secured and did not seem safe to leave the car in. Luckily, we did not have any problems other than the car being filthy dirty upon our return.

There is a complementary breakfast that offers apples, bananas, toast, hard-boiled-eggs, sausage and a make-your-own-waffle station in addition to orange & apple juice and coffee. The selection is nice however there is limited seating in the lobby and there was not a table available to us to sit down at so we had to take the food back to the room.

The room itself was dated and the heating/cooling unit (controlled on the wall but comes out of an air-conditioner type wall unit mounted under the window) was extremely noisy and took a long time to warm up (it took about 10 minutes of blasting cold air before we finally got some warm air which was uncomfortable and we had to keep our winter coats on inside of the room).

Positives are it is conveniently located and the staff are very friendly & professional.

I would not stay here again as there are many newer/nicer hotels in the area that offer more dependable/frequent airport shuttles.

This place needs some work. The furniture needs to be cleaned, and the linens need to be updated. The rooms are accessible from the outside and there was about 1/2" of space between the door and the door jam. They have a free continental breakfast and there are no resturants or stores nearby. It is right off of I-101, and the only good thing about it is its right at the Caltrain station. Even though we had a no smoking room, there was someone standing right outside our room smoking and jabbering on a cell phone for hours. We had to call the front desk to complain about it three times before anything was done. I would not stay here again. We stayed here only so we could take the Caltrain to the Giant game at AT&T park.

So we stayed here for 1 week. The first night was a disaster in terms of noise. One small part of the hotel backs onto the rail yard. Nonstop noise and a terrible night's sleep. It is like 10 rooms total that have this exposure. We went to the front desk the next morning and they were more than happy to move us to the other side. After that, no noise, and great value. The breakfast provided is fresh and delicious. Rooms are very clean, staff is also quite friendly and accommodating. Printers and computer allowed us to print boarding passes free. They have a shuttle to the BART and airport, but WARNING: you pay a 10.00 bart surcharge for leaving at the airport. A 2 minute drive to san bruno station has safe parking next to the police station. 1.00 a day parking saved us 20 bucks for the BART train.

I would definitely stay here again, but make sure to tell them I won't take a room that faces the rail yard. Google the map to see what I am talking about. Great value and friendly staff which is not common for the cheaper hotels. We paid 60 a night.

This was a great place to stay as a stopover to San Francisco! The continential breakfast is great and includes things like: made fresh belgian waffles, sausages/bacon, cereal, danishes and more! You can't beat the price for the room!

Our family of four was very comfortable in our room of 2 king beds and the location was easy to find. A great place to stay!

Rooms were adeqate and clean. The breakfast was really great and the free shuttle to airport was a bonus. The staff were not very friendly or helpful when we checked in. They gave us a map of nearby restaurants but they are really far to walk to at night and in a deserted area. God place to stay if you have an early flight or have a car to get around. Would not recommend for people wanting to see san francisco without a car as it is too far away from everything.

We stayed two nights in a very comfortable room. I didn't care for the square bed pillows, but my companion liked them. The front desk and breakfast room staff were very efficient, knowledgeable and helpful. Wide variety of food for breakfast includes fresh fruit, waffles, hard boiled eggs, sausage, pastries, orange juice, apple juice, coffee, milk, cereal, English muffins, toast, etc. The hotel has a shuttle that from the airport, that ran every half hour or so, between 4:00 AM and 1:00 AM. The hotel is also very convenient for walking to the local train (12 minute walk) and the local bus (15 minute walk). The lobby looks worn, with soiled carpet, but I figure there are a lot of guests passing through it. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
