Real Great Hotel for the price, very clean . Staff was top notch and very helpful ( especially Sam, who showed us around the property and directed us on transportation to San Fran ).I would recommend this Hotel to anyone visiting the state. Very close to the airport, has shuttle service also.

Was in San Francisco for a weekend, stay in Focus Hotel, clean and quiet , only 7 minutes from the airport. Very convenience , breakfast room is kind of small since the weekend was busy, didn't really enjoy the breakfast.

Will only clean room till 2pm, after that they do not clean or replenish towels, so do not sleep in. Breakfast was just cereal and toast. Ice machines are only on first floor. You have to pay to park at $11.00 a day. No fridge or microwave in rooms. Parking is hard to come by, buses park taking most of...

Don't expect anything fancy from this hotel, but it is a perfectly acceptable place to sleep if you need short term accommodations. Parking is $10 and there seemed to be plenty of it, at least when we stayed last weekend. Room was clean but modest. Very basic. Not the greatest shower pressure but again, acceptable. Friendly staff. Short drive to...

This hotel was a delight. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were excellent with a good choice for the guests. The gardens outside were elegant, and quite pleasantly surprising for a 'budget hotel' near an airport. Clearly the owners had a design team on this one...peaceful rock gardens with swaying grasses and red cape cod chairs to...

Free shuttle from airport. Good price. Place needs some additional upgrades but it was clean and has friendly stuff. Good breakfast - includes cereal, juice, tea and coffee and fresh bagels. Cons: this place has zero-sound proofing. Seriously. If you don't want to hear people talking when they pass your room then bring noise cancellation headphones. However, windows block noise...
