Stayed here for 1 night on business. Front desk did not appear too interested in dealing with customers. Was not greeted as IHG Spire, did not get bonus points, seemed to be bothering her by checking in. Not a big deal, just an FYI. Room was OK, clean and comfortable, breakfast was decent as well.

If you're looking for a pleasant experience, you better ensure Tess doesn't check you in. Upon arriving at the hotel (around 9:30am) I was obviously told that there were no rooms available. Understood. I was, however told that I could pay $50 to check in before noon and to have housekeeping rush a room. I agreed to pay the $50,...

Stayed here for one night and stay was average. The property is old and rooms are manageable. Bathroom/shower was very small. Located close to the airport, finding it initially was not easy. The lifts are not that clean and could be better.

My husband and I spent one night here. We were flying out early the next morning and this hotel is located conveniently near the airport. It is very clean and check-in was quick. Ask for a top floor room. (We had very a noisy group above us.) There is a free shuttle service to the airport that runs 24 hours....

We stayed here on both legs of a trip to Hawaii. Although the property is older, the room was quiet, the shuttle was convenient, the breakfast was free and well-stocked, and the staff was helpful and courteous. It was within walking distance of a top-rated taco truck and Houlihans, where we had dinner.

This HIE is one of the most charming locations I've been to (and I used to work in one!) The staff are super friendly, greet you in the hallway, and just make sure you have a great stay. Anytime we needed something, front desk was very knowledgeable and there was even a book with brochures and pamphlets for local attractions....

Let's start with what was bad. Upon check out, I was informed I was charged a bottle of water. I told the staff that I had not consumed it and I was very sure as I was the only person staying in the room. She mentioned she will check with house keeping and revert the charges if they found an...

The hotel and staff were great. Free shuttle from the airport. Staff located my can after I left it on the shuttle. There is a McDonalds and an IHOP nearby. The breakfast in the common area is great with some hot foods. You are still far from from downtown SanFrancisco. It can take 45-90 minutes to get there depending on...

We stayed here as part of a park/stay/fly deal. The hotel is fine, rooms clean and comfortable. There is a McDonald's next door and a decent sit-down restaurant/bar right across the street in The Best Western. There is also a regular Holiday Inn just up the street that has a restaurant on the premises (we know because we mistakenly stopped...
