If you prefer to avoid these typical old, US hotel chains, the Villa Montes hotel is a good option. The design of the rooms and the interior is quite interesting. If you prefer prublic transportation, the San Bruno Caltrain station is only a 7 minute walk away.

After flying all night we found the desk attendant, Michael, very patient and helpful. Even though the hotel was full, he paid specific attention to each guest 's needs, even phoning our room with suggestions for nearby restaurants. As our cell phone did not have service in the US, he lent me his to change my next-day airline reservation. The...

It's not a cheap one, but worth it. Located on El Camino Real it is within walking distance fron CalTrain and a shot drive (or a longer walk) from the bart station. San Bruno seems to be a safe area, so a family with children can go out with no concerns. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the...

With a flight arriving into SFO at 12:30am, we needed a good hotel close to the airport with transportation but that didn't break the bank. Villa Montes fit the bill. We called the hotel after picking up our bags at baggage claim and the front desk arranged for a cab to pick us up at no charge. The cab arrived...

It's hard to believe the great reviews this place gets after my recent stay. Yes, the free taxi rides from and to the airport are a nice touch, as is the nightly wine and cheese offering in the lobby. Other than that, it's difficult to find another aspect of the hotel that is praiseworthy. When I landed at the airport...

Overall it was good - free cookies and wine in the evening and free breakfast (although it was limited), in the morning. The rooms could use a bit more lighting. The conference I was presenting at had booked my hotel room and apparently got the last room available - room 101 which is literally in the parking garage. It's one...

Thank you again for a great stay. Very nice, local restaurants are great, close to the airport. Rooms are clean and kept up. Microwave, and mini refrigerator, beds are heavenly! I always stay here when I am traveling to the area. Staff is always courteous and greet you with a smile.

Flew to SF from East Coast and stayed here overnight before flying overseas. Clean, convenient to airport, fair price, good value, friendly and helpful staff. Mike recommended a good Mexican restaurant nearby. One minor criticism : the a/c in the room was a little weak and never got the room as cool as we wanted. Would stay here agai

The Villa Montes is a beautiful boutique hotel near San Francisco Airport. The decor is very high end. It is very quiet. I would suggest requesting a rear room to avoid the street traffic sounds. There was a simple, free breakfast with good coffee, and complimentary taxi to airport. Great, restful experience.
