Reviewed 1 week ago

Was really great experience and nice rooms, great shower. Very enjoyable experience. Have coffee and tea in room, nice tv and Wi-Fi. Was expecting a queen size bed but think it was a double, we made it work however and still slept great, barely any noise from planes.

Good enough for one night stay near airport. Quiet than I expected and good for jogging around. Enough space well maintained bed with clean linens. One thing might be improved is the poor response and not clear screen of TV.

I had a large room with a king bed and a sleeper sofa. The room and furniture was fine. The heating/cooling did not work properly; no matter what the digital thermostat was set to, the temperature in the room stayed at 75 degrees. Fortunately the windows open fully (despite being on the 5th floor with no balcony!) and I was...

My room was old and tired. Bathroom has seen a better day. Common areas poorly maintained. Service was average. The chain restaurant was load and needs a rehab. On top of that, they charge to park your car. Not pleased and would not return. Not a good brand representation.

The hotel is good, there are extra fee's though like you pay for parking and there was a 50 dollar room deposit. Other then that I had a great time and room was clean and no smoke smell but it did have a bit of a musty smell. The room is modern as you can expect and the bathroom toilet...

If you like old worn out furniture and stained drapes this is the place for you. You even get to pay to park while you stay. Imagine that, someone traveling on business with a rental car and the hotel here thinks that they are so special they can charge to park. Maybe next they will start charging for hot water...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Airport prior to flying out of SFO. The hotel appeared to have been recently updated. The facility was very clean, the decor contemporary and the staff very friendly. I utilized the airport shuttle service both to and from SFO and the driver was courteous and on time.

This is for the HOLIDAY INN, not the Holiday Inn Express, which is right down the street. I really enjoyed this hotel....I ended up staying here for two nights while my east coast destination was experiencing a blizzard. I had a day to walk and explore the area. I found the Bay Trail a few blocks away, which was a...

Upon arrival we were supposed to be met by the shuttle bus but the driver kept insisting that we were not his responsibility. We discovered that our agent had mistyped the street number (75 instead of 275) but our driver still insisted we were not from his hotel. After an hour and a few more phone calls to the hotel...

I picked this location because it's very close to SFO and I didn't want to deal with the morning traffic. Highly disappointed with this property. The television wasn't working properly when I arrived in the afternoon so I contacted the front desk.
