Was in San Francisco for 3 nights and booked this place. The place is only 1.5 miles to the airport which is handy. The hotel offers a shuttle service to the airport every hour. The fisherman's wharf is about 20-40 minutes depending on traffic from the hotel. Prices ranged between $20-$32 on a Uber ride depending on the time we...

nice folks at front desk. Room large and clean. Bathroom had some rust and peeling walls. Location good and they offer airport shuttle to SFO but unlike many other places no breakfast offered. The facility was compact and room for a number of cars.

Good location and Inexpensive rates, this is what I love about this place. It is not too far from San Francisco or the SFO airport. Public transportation (Cal Train) is in a walking distance from the hotel. The hotel is 10 minutes away from downtown Millbrae where there is a wide selection of restaurant as well as the bart station....

Good location if your going to SFO, but otherwise--not great. Poor selection of restaurants close by unless your only looking for Chinese or Mexican. Room was okay but the PARKING is terrible. No where near enough room and if you don't have a space they tell you to park on the street--which is a main thoroughfare. Check other places nearby,...

It is near to the SFO airport (15 min). You can get free shuttle service. There are lots of restaurant nearby in walking distance. Even you can go in midnight for walk because area is very safe. Rooms are very clean and quiet.

After a horrible Air Bnb experience in SF, our clan decided to book a night at this place before our flight back to LA. Wasn't expecting much, so it kinda exceeded my expectations. For one thing, there was an elevator! And that's an amazing thing after our not-so-pleasant experience at a motel in LA. The room was quite spacious too....
