Booked a deluxe room with balcony. Building is a ~50 year old former Travelodge that has recently been updated, remains in pretty good condition and is comparable to a nice Hampton Inn. Breakfast and parking is included in room rate. This is my third stay at this hotel and prefer it to the hotels on the other side of US101...

Have stayed at the Dylan (formerly Travel Lodge) often coming from the Central Valley for a weekend in SFO as it provides parking, and the BART is over the road. the rates used to be favourable, but a bit of embellishment in the foyer and an outside paint job seems to have put the screws on this. Appreciate it's close...

Helpful but not necessarily friendly reception staff. Breakfast wasnt too bad. Usual north American selection, nothing special. Fun touches like a massive scrabble board game. Definitely try go to the Hong Kong Flower Chinese restaurant near by, great find and recommendation! Good location I reckon with the BART nearby - only 30 mins into town.

We stayed here for a weekend. We picked it due to price and location to a wedding. This is a remodeled motel. It's decent size and the room is clean. Has a coffee area in room, safe, blow dryer, iron, big flat screen TV. Only draw back with the room is it didn't have a refrigerator. Crucial for left-overs. They...

The only thing more surprising than the following story is how high the reviews of this hotel are: In early February, I was leaving Hawaii for Chicago. Our flight was delayed four hours and we were going to miss our connection in San Francisco so we decided to book a room at The Dylan. After conflicting reports from the airline...

We stay at the Dylan frequently when leaving on overseas trips due to their reasonable Sleep & Fly package, which includes leaving the car for up to ten days, and one night on departure or return. A full breakfast is included, along with espresso coffee.

Sometimes an early departure or late arrival from SFO makes a nearby hotel a good choice, though they are usually either expensive or a bit bit worn or both. What a pleasant surprise to find this very convenient airport hotel! Updated, clean, and spacious rooms with a comfortable bed. The front desk person was very friendly and helpful. As advertised...

This place is the bomb! Most convenient and affordable hotel to do SanFran. I'm not going to blab too many details, because I don't want to blow up my spot, but I had to give these guys MAD PROPS!

I'm seriously almost afraid to offer my honest review, because I hope the rates won't skyrocket the next time I have the opportunity to stay at this fine establishment. Nevertheless, I must say that I was thoroughly impressed and had a very nice overnight stay at a rather affordable rate. When the need arises for me to work in SF...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dylan at SFO, proud winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellenece 2016, is a newly remodeled 58 room boutique hotel. They are conveniently located just 1 mile from the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and feature a free SFO Airport shuttle bus to and from the airport. They are within 100 yards of the Millbrae BART/CalTrain station, gateway to downtown San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. Our delicious complimentary breakfast features hot items that change daily, including: bacon, sausage, eggs, omelets, casseroles and potatoes. We also offer other tasty options: fresh waffles, fresh baked muffins, scones, danishes & cinnamon rolls, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels & cream cheese, toast, hard-boiled eggs, ham & cheese, juice and freshly brewed coffee. Complimentary Fresh baked cookies, coffee and tea are available the afternoon. In 2017 The Dylan Hotel at SFO brought back mid-century modern with contemporary vibes through their recent remodel of the exterior, lobby, reception and breakfast room. The entrance is encased with eco-friendly siding and accented with a retro-feel hexagon patterned coreteen steel. Step into the lobby to the sound of subtle electronic jazz music quietly playing overhead as you take in the natural elements of the living wall and tree trunk table. Head to the reception, and enjoy the San Francisco murals behind the smoked glass and wood-grained shelving while checking in with our guest service agent. We offer complimentary Nescafé cappuccinos to enjoy while showing off your Scrabble skills on the giant wall game. In the morning enjoy a buffet breakfast featuring housemade granola, fresh baked muffins, waffles or some eggs and sausages along with many other goodies. While enjoying breakfast or waiting for our complimentary SFO airport shuttle, sit and admire the bigger than life sixties vibe wall art with starlet beauties and super heroes or just watch the wall mounted tablets streaming hip, retro movies. Their newly renovated guest rooms display the dreamy artwork of famous surrealist photographer, Thomas Barbey. Each guest room features all American made furniture with built-in USB, plush pillow top beds, 40 inch LED and much more. The newly renovated bathrooms have imported Spanish porcelain tile and rain showerheads. ... more   less
