This motel is in a fantastic location, great staff, continue to update the location and improve the service and rooms. Good Breakfast. We feel as if we are part of the family and return now for many years. Pick up from the airport and return if needed. Walkimg distance to restaurants, Bart, train, bus or easy leaving and going to the freeways. Will continue to return to this location.

We needed a Park and Fly option for our departure from San Francisco Int'l.  This property offered a competitive price, free parking while on our trip, free airport shuttle and free continental breakfast.  No problem, right?  What they didn't tell us until we arrived was that there was a conference and all parking spaces on their lot were full and to park our car on the street in front of the Wendy's next door, leave our keys with them and they would move it before 9 am the next morning (hours after we were to leave on our trip).  This made us quite nervous as the neighborhood was marginal, and who's comfortable leaving their expensive car with unknown individuals to drive??  On top of that, the desk clerk was not especially friendly or apologetic about the circumstances and acted like it should be no big deal.  He told us we could go out into the parking lot that night at intervals to see if any spaces opened us, and move our car ourselves,
before we were to leave, otherwise they would do it.  No spaces opened up and the happy ending was that
when we returned from our trip, our car had been moved into the lot, no dents, scrapes or extra milage that we could see.  But from now on, we will ask if there are enough spaces at the time of arrival on their property, and we will not use this establishment again.  (Free shuttle was ok, as was the small breakfast:  oj and coffee from a vending machine and fruit and packaged bakery items.  Room was average.) I would not recommend this place to anyone.

I booked the Travelodge Millbrae because I wanted a cheap option for an in/out interview trip at UCSF/SFGH. It was perfect.

For visiting UCSF/SFGH, to avoid renting a car or taking a cab, being a block from the Millbrae BART/Caltrans was key. There are free shuttles that circulate between the campuses and pick up at locations like the Caltrans depot and 16th/Mission BART station. You can find the routes/times on the UCSF website.

Just like prior reviewers have mentioned, the airport shuttle was pleasantly fast, property clean, staff helpful, and the continental breakfast nice to put something in your stomach before heading out. Booking on the hotel website was $1-2 cheaper than the best price I found on Expedia.

What I did not know beforehand was that the hotel is also walking distance to a handful of restaurants, fast-food, grocery story, coffee shop, and most importantly, In-N-Out.

I first stayed at this hotel in June 2007. My daughter was leaving from the San Francisco Airport and I reviewed hotels on the AAA website and found this one. Since then I have been back 3 other times. The owners of this property pay special attention to details and have made the property a pleasure to stay at. They have a wonderful morning breakfast in their lobby starting at 6:00 am which is very important to me as I am an early riser. They have refurbished and beautified this hotel with good taste and much thought. The hotel is within short walking distance to stores and places to eat. Also a very short walking distance to Cal Train and BART. My sister just had surgery at the hospital in Redwood City and we stayed at this hotel in Millbrae even though it was a little bit of a drive to go to Redwood City because I knew what to expect from this hotel and I knew I liked it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Dylan at SFO, proud winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 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 Nescafe 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
