Comfort Inn & Suites San Francisco Airport North
Travel Blogs from South San Francisco
Before heading west we had another look at the Lake, from Tallac. It was still and hardly a soul was on the beach. Still, despite its picturesqueness I don't think I'll be back. We gradually descended into the Sacramento Valley, the twisty and forested road giving way to duller, flatter and more arid landscape. Fortunately the roadworks did stop as …
Today started with a very short trip to the car park (next door) and a waiting bus to take us to terminal 5. Due to the current terrorist threat the American authorities are insisting that all America bound flights should undertake additional security ...
... majorly distorts the size of this park!! Bloody hell it is large, and we try see a lot but the exhaustion cold and serious amount of homeless people cap our park time to 2 hours. We walk uphill to get the bus back to the hostel.
Chinese food in the Hostel and a film later and we are ready for a much needed sleep. Thankfully we have the room to ourselves.
San Francisco is a great city.
... floating houseboats including one that looked like and was called the Taj Mahal. We left Sausalito and went towards the Golden Gate Bridge. We entered the cloud/fog but carried on anyway and passed under the bridge with the fog horn going. I went out on deck even though it was windy and cold and took some pictures. We headed back to port and although it had been cold outside it was still a really good ...
... I also get a picture of the Ghost Tree--with a trunk bleached white from wind, this unique Monterey cypress has a sinister silhouette.
We leave this area and get back on the road; we end the day at a hotel just south of San Francisco. I'm ready to crash but it sure was a fun day!! Sweet dreams everyone!!!

Best stay of week
made reservations for this motel last week for last night before flying home the next morning because of its location in regard to SFO and cost...was less than $60, and within 2-3 miles of rental car return...found out they had high speed internet free if requested, large rooms with very large bathroom...wish we could have packaged up this room and took with us on our journey around California...it is right on side of Hwy 101, and commuter train runs right by, but noise was not noticable..hard to locate as it is not visible when you first turn off Hwy 101, but when you go past and turn around it is visible...has couple of gas stations very close that is convenient for returning rental cars..
They double billed me
The stay was ok, I prepaid with travelocity. When I got home the hotel also billed me. I'm fighting it now. Watch out for prepays.
In need of updating and repair
I thought I'd scored another deal on Hotwire, but this has been my greatest disappointment to date. I paid $47, but it wasn't worth it. In a recent stay my king "suite" had worn and dirty carpet, a sagging mattress, marked up walls in need of a paint job, tired old bed and window coverings. On the upside the front desk staff was very pleasant and the lobby was clean and decorated nicely. Bottom line take your money elsewhere.
I've stayed here several times, "winning" it on Priceline. I would never choose this hotel intentionally, not even at Expedia's $45 rate.
Our family stayed there for 5 nts in Aug 03. We paid $59 per night for 4 persons. At that rate we were a little concerned when we booked the hotel (too good to be true?). The airport shuttle picked us up to take us to the Comfort Suites. Upon arrival the staff made us feel like we were part of the family. The rooms were over-sized with plenty of room and the amenities were above average. We had one minor problem with the small refrigirator but upon reporting it to the front desk it was replaced immediatley. The Hot Tub was fantastic! The hotel was able to book all of our city tours for us and the staff was able to provide us with many ideas on how we could spend our spare time. The breakfast was average but for the value very acceptable. My only suggestion is that you try to make it for breakfast between 7am and 8am before it gets too crowded. All of the other guests seemed to enjoy this hotel to and I have already reccommended this property to friends, family and business associates!
I loved my stay there!!!
I stayed there in September 2002 for 3 nights,and I enjoyed every minute I was in my room.It was very clean and comfortable.I will definately stay there again on my next trip to San Francisco.I did run into one kind of rude guy at the front desk,but I over-looked it,there are rude people every where you go!Nothing to call management about.I stayed on the 3rd floor and had a great view of the courtyard.I highly recommend this place.
My mother and I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of May and had the most horrible stay there, starting from the rudeness of the front desk personnel from the room itself. Then to find out that after we checked into our room, I went to go get ice from the ice machine on the 3rd floor that we were on and I noticed that the machine was not working so I went back to the room and called the front desk and was told that the only machine that was working was on the first floor, so I went down there and only got about 10 ice cubes out of the machine. I then walked to the front desk and asked if they had any ice and she told me that they had alot of people here and I would just have to wait for a couple of hours for more ice or else there was a gas station down the road that sold bags of ice if I needed it immediatley. The "deluxe" continential breakfast is a joke also, not much food on there and also they person who works the breakfast bar doesn't use gloves to put the food out, while we were there she put her hair up in a ponytail and then started to put out some bagels. I had emailed the Comfort Inn Suites and continued to play telephone tag with the manager for over a week and finally gave up on even talking to him and explaining our dissapointments. He would leave messages at my house telling me times to give him a call and tell the front desk to page him since he would be waiting for my phone call and they refused to do this, so I have never actually spoken to a person regarding this horrible visit to this hotel. The best hotel to stay in is the Holiday Inn Express at Fisherman's Wharf!!! It is very clean and very very friendly and courteous employees. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Potentially good value
This hotel often has rooms available on internet booking sites for $50/night or less. Each room has a king bed and a queen sofa, sleeping 4. Good value. Can't find a hotel for 4 in San Francisco proper for under $80, if not more like $100. An easy 12 minute drive from the hotel to downtown San Francisco. The complimentary breakfast has gone downhill over the past year - now just basic cereal and bagels (disappointing in that regard).
Great Value For The Money
This hotel is a great value for the money. It's Clean, the staff was generally friendly and helpful, it's right on the Caltrain line between San Jose & San Francisco (although you have to hike up a high overpass to get to/from it). I stayed there around Labor Day 2002, and I have booked another stay there for the near future. That said, I have only two minor quibbles: (1) Free shuttle from SFO runs only every 30 minutes..can be a long wait if you don't time it right. (2) Breakfast nook real small and gets a little bit chaotic to get through. So, of a possible 4 stars, I give it a solid 3. Good enough, however, to earn my repeat business!
We booked 6 days for mid-september, 2002 at CS-SFO through turbotrip. Room cost $45/nite with a bit over 60 days advance notice. Traveled via personal car. I was a bit suspicious about the low price, but since it was a national chain we took a chance on it.
