Very close to airport and car rental return, place needs some TLC, would have liked to stay another day, not cheap but you get what you pay for. Free breakfast was OK should have been better. Parking was a little tight but construction / renovation was going on.

My accommodations, services and the staff at the hotel could not have been better or easier. It was great to have a restaurant on-site. The room was quiet, clean, roomy and comfortable. I did not expect an early breakfast to have so much variety available. I felt confident with the conveniences of the transport to the airport and the organized...

Best place to stay if you have a morning flight out of SFO. Rooms, service and proximity to SFO make it a no brainier. The morning breakfast take away is a winner. It is the only place we stay before going home when visiting San Francisco.

This hotel was pretty good. Clean and comfortable, though it is a bit noisy. They fail to mention that there is an active train track behind the hotel. It took leaving the air conditioning on all night to drown out the noise. It looks a bit dingy on the outside but I thought it was good for a Best Western....

Landed at SFO and wanted a place to spend the night. This place is clean and well-kept. It has a restaurant and bar. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful about travel and sightseeing suggestions. Would stay there again.

This hotel is perfect to park and fly. The shuttle picks up at each room. upon returning the shuttle has our car keys waiting. If we stay the night our car is parked in front of our room and we are given room keys. No need check in. Also nice restaurants and Easy departure snack for those on the go.
