This remodeled HIE has a great location right next to the SFO airport, CalTrain lines to the city and Highway 101 for easy access to all parts of the Bay Area. The hotel staff including John the manager, Tess and all the other front desk personnel are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Rooms are clean, as are all the other areas...

I booked the park and fly program through this hotel for a trip that was 5 days over the 14 days included in their package. I booked it through the main number for Holiday Inn which quoted me $9.99 per day for each additional day. In addition the confirmation also had $9.99 per day on it as well. When I...

Due to some serious back issues, my first priority is ALWAYS the bed...which is why I like Holiday Inn Express in general. They never disappoint in that area. HOWEVER, the staff at this particular hotel is wonderful. We needed to check in early so we could attend our daughter's graduation on time. I was fully prepared to beg and plead...but...

After a long day flying from the east coast, got to SFO late and stayed close to the airport just to unwind and not have to fight the traffic that night. When we checked in, we were upgraded to an executive suite and also got late check out. The desk staff were as good as I find anywhere in my...

I needed a place to relax at SFO after a long evening flight from the east after a long day in the east. Even though I was already a fan of Holiday Inn Express in general, I was very pleasantly surprised by how nice the remodel was of this location. The modern, comfy, and convenient atmosphere was fantastic and really...

Was only here for the night before an early flight. New rooms, linens, and furniture....walls are solid, and room was very clean. Stay here instead of the other Holiday Inn property down the road, and you will pay less and still be able to hit Houlihan's specials!

My husband and I love staying at the Holiday Inn Express hotels. Clean rooms, friendly staff, free breakfast (love the cinnamon rolls), free Wi-Fi, and courtesy shuttles all for a great price!

Big room with King Bed that was extremely comfortable. We arrived late after missing numerous connections from Newfoundland and missing our embarkation for Cruise in LA.

Big Rooms, just ideal for night stopover very close to Airport and complementary breakfast was just select items which would serve the purpose. Don't expect lavish breakfast and don't expect lot of amenities during the stay. Be very careful with the free Shuttle coaches from the Airport there are so many Holiday Inn busses picking up guest from airport there...
