I had intended to stay in this hotel at the start and end of our California trip this summer . With SFO closed due to the crash at the start of July , I ended up sleeping in Newark Airport instead – NOT recommended ! Spent the last night of our holiday here and found all the previous reviews true...

I'd read several positive reveiws about the Dylan, but it was completely been booked when I traveled in the spring and again when I planned to visit my Mom. However, I had a change of plans and then lucked out and got a last-minute reservation for the night before an early morning flight out of SFO last month. I was...

Great hotel just outside SF (25 min trainride) and very close to SF international airport, with very knowledgeable and super friendly staff. Clean and nicely decorated rooms with big flat screen tv & wifi. Easy access to trains as well as restaurants and shops. Hotel provides free shuttle bus to airport. If you go, you sure will not be dissapointed.

As a female business traveler, I'd never stay anywhere with an outside corridor entrance. The Dylan has a little secret - a small set of rooms with an inside corridor! This was my second stay this month. While the carpet is a little dated, loved the space and amentities - frig, micro, coffeemaker, art, reading lights. But best of all...

If you need a hotel near SFO and BART and Caltrain this is the place. Although a motel style (outside corridors and room entrance) it's very clean and comfy. Breakfast is the usual coffee muffins bagels juice cereal waffles hard booked eggs ham and cheese but is fresh. Reception was very courteous especially Mike on checkout. Shuttle is free and...

A bad hotel can significantly detract from an overall positive vacation experience. The Dylan is not that hotel. Close to SFO and even closer to the BART station, we were able to easily access San Francisco without having to worry about freeway traffic or parking. The housekeeping staff were pleasant and efficient and the recently-upgraded but still retro room gave...

To get to the combined BART-Caltrain station platform, it took me only about five minutes to walk from the hotel. It seemed as if the hotel was barely a mile from the Milbrae exit on the 101 freeway—which is the first exit south of San Francisco International Airport. Adding to the convenience of its location, the hotel is just about...

I stayed here with my wife on 2 separate nights last month & chose Dylan because it was my idea of an "airport hotel". First off, breakfast starts at 6am. You can make your own waffles, there's hardboiled eggs, fresh fruit & cold ham, pretty good for "continental". The overall ambience is small & cosy but the kitchen staff work...

We found the Dylan a perfect spot for a three-day trip to San Francisco. Hotels in the city were either out of our budget or appeared to be of questionable quality. Having had one bad experience in the Marina district I checked carefully this time for a place that offered a reasonable price, a good room and a convenient location....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This family owned boutique hotel with newly remodeled guestrooms (2014) is conveniently located 1 mile from the San Francisco Airport (SFO) with free 24-hour SFO Airport shuttle bus service to and from the SFO airport. They offer free parking for your night of stay; however, no car is necessary as they are within 100 yards of the Millbrae BART (rapid transit)/Caltrain station-your gateway to San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. Aside from Their superior location, there are other perks that will make your experience with them even more special. Every morning guests will enjoy a free deluxe continental breakfast featuring hard-boiled eggs, ham & cheese, tasty in-house-baked goods, freshly made granola, fresh waffles and so much more. Come back to the front desk in the afternoon to enjoy freshly baked cookies, tea and coffee. Talk to their friendly front desk staff about San Francisco tour recommendations, they are happy to assist you with planning. The Dylan is proud to offer free high-speed wireless Internet throughout the hotel, making it easy for you to catch up on work or emails. Lounge by the fountain in their relaxing Tuscan themed patio complete with comfy seating and lantern lighting. They recently completed the remodeling of their guestrooms in 2014. They took an artistic approach to their new room designs and worked with famous surrealist photographer Thomas Barbey to select each piece of his dreamy artwork to display in their guestrooms. Look closely at the art and you'll begin to recognize icons from all around the world, including San Francisco. Each room is stylized to highlight the beauty of his work. If you enjoy unwinding in front of the TV, you'll love watching HBO on the 40 inch LCD flat screen TVs that they've provided in each guestroom. Their modern all American made furniture adds a touch of sophistication to their room design and unlike most hotels, they've incorporated ample USB ports and electrical outlets into every headboard and desk as they know the importance of staying connected to loved ones and colleagues. Their stunning new bathrooms feature spacious showers with imported Spanish porcelain tile, frameless glass shower doors and relaxing rain showerheads. For over 2 decades, they have been committed to offering their guests a quality stay at an extremely competitive rate.
