Stay was okay. Had to ask for pillows. Come back from vacation to find out my battery died due to my alarm going off for who knows how long. Now waiting for AAA. Parking lot completely open not protected at all. Wish we would have spent a little more for parking...

Very basic room. Not inviting but it seemed ok clean. Just dark and dreary in hallways. Don't expect a typical bathroom. Small sink outside the bath and toilet. Basic yet tolerable. Unsure how clean the sofa was but just used to hold suitcase. FYI they do not have king size beds in the hotel.

Perfectly clean room, really service minded staff that are ready and willing to help you with anything you may need. Saved my life when my flight got cancelled and I didn't know where to go for the night. Would definitely visit again!

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. Quiet close to the airport. It took us about 40 minutes to get to the heart of San Francisco to all the touristic scenes. The breakfast was very basic, help yourself style, but ok for the price. The elevator was not always worked, so if you have any mobility issue, make sure to...

The manager, Claudia Gales, has made rennovations to the hotel. She assures excellent customer service, clean and tidy rooms, and they ensure that all of their customers are fully satisfied with their service. Because of Claudia Gales' management we recommend Hotel Focus because of its reasonable rates, clean rooms, and excellent customer service.

The hotel is very close to the airport and offers a free shuttle which is the main reason I choose it. The rooms were motel style and are old fashioned but functional and if you need a place to sleep with no frills this would be a good option.

The room is clean and large enough. The shower is too low and could use a bit of love. If you want to head into town you might want to get a hotel closer to the Caltrain station. It works for a night but that's it.
