I'm here on a airline layover, I'd never pay to stay here. Loop door lock somehow slid shut after I exited room, scary part was I was able to slide it back open. Water tastes terrible but that may not be the hotels fault, it could be California water. Room keys and shuttle van say Holiday Inn for some reason....

Reviewed 26 March 2016

Our flight to Denver was cancelled and we were steered by United airlines and airportglobal.com to "discount" rates at this hotel. The "discount" rate was $135 and we only found out later that the same room could be had for $90 by booking directly from their website. On top of that, the women at the desk was rude and unhelpful,...

Nice hotel close to SFO. According to the staff, the Holiday Inn next door is under the same ownership so parking was ok on either property. I was there with a 45" bus and i was told to park anywhere i saw fit, on either property. If cars are parked close to the corners of the property it will be...

I wasn't what to expect for a 2.5 hotel but in San Francisco you can't beat free hotel parking, free breakfast and free wifi!!! The hotel is a bit older but the rooms are very cozy and the restrooms are very nice. I was very pleased with our stay here.

Well sorry to say I'm going to give this place a nice solid 3 star. And no more. It's clean enough, nice enough, it's so aging, but the maintenance seems to be in place, the entrance and exit are a little tight. It's easy enough to find. The blankets are a little lacking for me, the breakfast from 6 to...

Hotel need to be updated but was clean, and breakfast was good. WiFi was good and free shuttle service to the airport. Staff was very helpful as well. I got a good deal for the money, otherwise I would have passed on this hotel. It reminds me of a old military hotel and I had a suite room. Most things...

I've never travelled with my mother since she started using a walker. I booked at the last minute and explained our needs. The price -- for SFO -- was awesome. $139.

The staff could not have been more accomodating. I flew in on a redeye from Costa Rica for a funeral and they allowed me to get into my room in the morning so that I would have time to get ready for the funeral that afternoon. Conveniently located to the airport and shopping. Great breakfast.

I had to make a last minute reservation due to an airline error,so I called TripAdvisor to help me find a room. I didn't realize I needed to call the hotel to have the shuttle pick me up at the airport, so by the time I called the hotel I was tired and wanted to get to my room. Mickey...
