We emailed them with a question prior to booking but they never bothered to reply. We felt that any hotel which values its potential customers should at least reply to enquiries sent via their website.

Room was nice. The hot breakfast items were exactly the same all 3 days we were there. There were none of the famous cinnamon buns we usually expect here and they really need to change up the hot breakfast items so it’s not the exact same food choices every day. Also, the last

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your recent stay us, we are pleased to have satisfied your accommodation needs at SFO so well. However, we are disappointed to hear that our hot breakfast buffet that features over eighty items including eggs, bacon, omelettes, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, oatmeal, fresh fruit and bagels did not fully please you. Our industry-leading brand standard complimentary breakfast is very popular with most of our guests nationwide, and it is a shame that our cinnamon rolls had run out before your breakfast time. This does not generally happen, but can occasionally, during a very busy breakfast. We hope that you will return for another great stay with us when you next require accommodation at SFO. Best Regards, Holiday Inn Express SFO Customer ExperienceTeam

I’ve had a long flight and was exhausted. I’m so appreciative of Tess at the front desk. There were many people arriving in the lobby and she made sure others didn’t jump in front of me to check in. Nice amenities and clean feeling throughout this establishment.

I Just checked in by STEFANNY and she was the sweetest Front Desk at this hotel. She was very helpful and accommodating. I requested a room away from elevator and I got it, she gave me a lot of information on what to do in the area for my one day visit. Friendly staff. She made

checking in late....eating options?
About the only restaurant that's probably going to be open late is an IHop at 316 S Airport Blvd. It's a quarter of a mile north of the hotel on the same road
