    Not Recommended


    Worst hotel I have ever stayed in my whole life. I travel a lot!! The staff were rude and not helpful. Breakfast was not that great. Rooms smelled like mold. Had plumbing issues. Had to move about three times until I had an alright room. Near a busy highway which was really noisey. Carpet in the hall ways were extremely dirty! Over all the best thing of the hotel was that they had free parking unlike stay in SF City.

    On A Budget. Then maybe.


    Reminds me of Soviet-era housing. Big. Block-like. Sterile. Crummy neighborhood. Look out the window: the runway aims right at the place, which is a little disconcerting. But, surprisingly, a great salad bar.

    A pretty good value I think


    We stayed at this hotel for three nights last week. I think it was $73 plus tax per night, and I would recommend the place because it's a good bang for the buck, in my opinion. There is a free airport shuttle (which I didn't use since I rented car), and a great breakfast, which is also complimentary.

    The desk people are okay. The young oriental men working it are nice and professional, and helpful. There was one middle-aged, white woman there who could perhaps consider retirement or a career change. Also our beds were hard, but overall, not a bad place for such a price.

    Nice Hotel


    We stayed at the hotel from Sept. 16-19, 2004. The hotel was clean and had a pleasant surrounding when checking in. We arrived early and the hotel staff was very helpful and was able to get us in a room quickly after a long flight. Room was clean and what I expected in a real 3-star hotel. The location is close to the airport but 20 minutes away from downtown San Francisco. Your only choices to have lunch is at a McDonald directly across the street. The hotel provided breakfast which was okay a little more than just a continental breakfast for one day you had eggs and sausage and ham and waffle, etc and it was free. Dinner was good but a little pricey. We went on sightseeing tour and the bus came and pick us up at the hotel so we really didn't use the rental car much. After sightseeing all day it was nice to come back to a quiet area and we did venture out to other areas to eat and shop some nights. I really like our hotel stay and definitely would consider staying there again.



    I was glad we only stayed here one night. After checking in, we went out for dinner & came back & could not find parking. We actually had to wait until someone left. Parking at this hotel is free for guests but do not give up your space in the evening.Room did not have a microwave or small refrigerator so if you are looking for this, stay elsewhere.Hotel was clean & comfortable, so it depends what you are looking for in a place to stay.

    OK if all you need is a place to sleep before or after your flight


    This hotel is bare-bones, but secure and relatively convenient. Front desk staff is harried and rather unfriendly, and lobby is not gracious. This said, the shuttle to and from the airport was reliable in my experience. I found the best price by going to the hotel's own website: --------------------- $54/nt. + tax.

    A good experience...


    The Best Western Grosvenor is fine for a short stay near the S.F.

    airport. I spent one night there in late January 2004, and the price was reasonable. The rooms are large and comfortable, free parking, and an easy free shuttle ride to and from the airport. The area is not much to look at, but it was quiet. The only draw back was a restaurant open for breakfast and dinner only, no lunch. There is also a full bar at night.

    An interesting alternative to downtown hotels for the budget-oriented traveler


    This hotel is located in South San Francisco, close to San Francisco Airport. I have stayed there in December 2003. I had previously experienced several hotels in San Francisco downtown, so I can compare what I've got at the Best Western Grosvenor. For a lower price, I got a larger room, excellent service and free parking. My room was clean and comfortable and I could even see the bay in the background from my window. The only little criticism would go to the bathroom which could have been renovated, but it was perfectly clean. There is a nice restaurant at the hotel and a complimentary shuttle service to the airport. As to the negative aspects, I must say there is nothing to see around the hotel, but the location is safe and surprisingly quiet. The main drawback is certainly the distance to San Francisco, but if you drive, or if you are not in a hurry, it may be worth the experience. It takes about thirty minutes to go to San Francisco by car. Alternatively, there is a bus-stop across the street or a BART station at the airport. I've once tried the bus: it was cheap, but it took me nearly an hour to reach downtown because of the numerous stops. The BART is probably faster. Overall, I would say that it is a real 3 stars hotel, in a safe location, with very reasonable prices and free parking, which is an interesting combination. The next time I go to San Francisco, I will consider staying at this hotel again.

    Nice shuttle service


    Very efficient free shuttle connection to the airport. Nice rooms. Ice machine too close to the rooms (if you find the person with ice necessity at 5am...).

    Storm Nika forced us to change our 5pm flight to 8am - Bob made the smart decision yesterday late afternoon and we were lucky to be able to change it. We did not get much sleep last night as I was scrambling to get everything ready, mostly the stuff about the dogs, etc. We got up at 3:15am and left the house at 4am. Made it to Logan around 5.

    ... Knowing how good the clam chowder at Boudins is it was a obvious choice for lunch. The chowder is poured into the freshly baked bread bowel and ticks all the boxes if you like your bread. The prices not including tax is really starting to get frustrating. To me it doesn't make sense not to just put the entire prices on everything.

After driving back over Golden Gate to the Hostel, I met up with the Navy Lads and we went to the bar for a few drinks, we set off out much earlier this time at around 9pm, knowing that the bars closed early. Was a good laugh and checked out a few cool bars.
