Convient to the airport
We spent the night of August 13, 2005 prior to a 7:15 a.m. flight the next morning. I specifically booked an airport hotel so we could drop off our rental car that afternoon rather than doing a super early drop off in the morning before our flight. All went well. The yound lady at the desk of the hotel gave us clear directions on locating the free shuttle at the airport back to the hotel. The drop off operation went off like clockwork. After returning to the hotel, the same young lady made our reservations for the 5:30 a.m. shuttle the next morning and gave us directions to restaurants within walking distance. We left too early for breakfast. Four others joined us on the 5:30 a.m. shuttle and they also had returned rental cars the previous days. Obviously, this is a common situation. We had an excellent night's sleep. The hotel was extremely quiet although it was 100% booked. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. I was offered an upgrade to a king suite (Hilton Platinum Honors), which I declined. The rate was $93 including taxes and we were very satisfied.
Not as good as expected
We booked this hotel for 2 nights on June 22nd. Our flight arrived early and were unable to check-in but that was not a problem. We went across the street and took a walk along the bay. It was a lovely view. We returned at check-in time and found out that the 2 rooms we had booked were on 2 different floors. After involving the manager, we agreed to keep the one bayview room and take a smoking room on the same floor. The manager gave a discount on the bayview room because of our inconvenience; however he charged us the bayview price for the smoking room which was a cheaper room and would not take anything further off. If we had known the rooms were not together when we booked them, we would have taken the 2 standard rooms at the cheaper AAA price at that time.
None of the key cards worked on the side door which we tryed to enter with all our luggage. And the smoking room had requested 4 key cards and only 1 worked to enter the room.
When we arrived at the bayview room, the maid was still cleaning it which was approximately 45 minutes after the official check-in time and the front desk had not made us aware of this.
With our rooms we were given internet access to the house computers, however one quit working right after we arrived and the other stopped working shortly therafter. Neither were fixed upon our departure.
The breakfast was hot but just OK. They had several items but not much variety.
The trainee at the front desk was nice; however she was not familiar with the area and could not tell us where the BART Millbrae station was located. (It was less than 2 miles from the hotel)
The rooms were clean and the hotel is quite for being close to the airport; but on our return flight we stayed down the street at a nicer and cheaper hotel.
If you do book this hotel, be sure to confirm your reservations and also where your room will be located especially if you have more than 1 room.
Great price, great location, & great quality
My wife and I spent (1) night at the Hampton Inn Burlingame while visiting San Francisco. As we were only in the city for about 20 hours, we wanted a comfortable room, in a good area, at a good price. This hotel was perfect. Before tax, we paid $55 using an AAA discount. The hotel is in a good area on Bayshore Highway, which runs along San Francisco Bay. It's directly across the street from a Marriott and down the street from a Hyatt and Westin, among other hotels.
Even though we didn't arrive until midnight, the hotel was quick to reward my Hilton Honors Diamond status, complying with all of my room location preferences as well as having my freebies (i.e. bottled water, light snack, etc.) ready. Our room (no. 105) featured all standard amenities (i.e. TV, bed, iron, hairdryer) as well as some items I'd consider premium (i.e. free high speed wired and wireless Internet). The rooms were nicely appointed and in good condition, not surprising considering the hotel has only been open for 1 year.
The morning after our stay, we stopped by the hotel's breakfast on the way out - very standard for a Hampton. It included a few hot items, a selection of coffees, as well as other breakfast items (i.e. box cereals, fresh fruit, muffins, etc.). As my wife was one of the first people to arrive that morning, a nice young man from the hotel helped her get a tray and find everything she needed. We were able to bring our food back to the room and enjoy a nice breakfast in bed.
For those going into San Francisco, the hotel is about 20 minutes south of Downtown using 101 & 280. It's a nice ride past the redeveloped area around SBC Park and into Fisherman's Wharf. Given the great room rate, free parking, and free breakfast, this hotel was an absolute bargain as compared to staying directly in downtown San Francisco. I'd highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
Highly recommend for a reasonable, clean airport hotel
For an airport hotel in a major metropolitan area this is a nice Hampton Inn. The AAA rate of $56 and $98 were very reasonable. I stayed here coming and going. The airport shuttle is free and they dropped me off at the Airport-Bart terminal so I could continue my trip the next morning into San Francisco. The staff was very friendly, hotel clean, newish, free internet-computer terminal, free breakfast with a great selection. Very nice wait staff. As a female traveling alone I felt safe. There is nothing around the hotel so this is just a good pitstop for the beginning and end of your trip. It is quiet for an airport hotel.
We stayed here Sept 4, our last night of a week stay in California. It was a nice clean room with friendly staff. The location and price can't be beat. We did hear the planes at times but they didn't bother our sleep. The Mexican restaurant a block away was bad so try one of the other restaurants within walking distance. It took 10 mintues to drive to the airport and return our car. Great location!
Great Deal for San Fran/SFO Area
Stayed here in June 2004. Great hotel for the money and perfect location near SFO. I couldn't hear the planes from my room, and barely could hear them outside. Nice continental breakfast and they will take you to the airport in a real limo, no extra charge. I will definitely stay here again.
Best Value & NEW !!!
We stayed at this hotel from 6/3 to 6/6 & this is the best value of all the hotels of my California trip.
The room is comfortable with refrig., mini sink, microwave, couch & FREE breakfast. The non-smoking room is 100% clean & odor free. (When we stayed at RI by M... in San Diego, the previous occupant has smoked in the non-smoking room.) Hampton Inn will have $100 penalty for smoking in the non-smoking room.The location is near the airport b/c we have a early morning flight.
Most convenient airport hotel
Wonderful service and staff; the rooms were comfortable and quiet. It will become our portal hotel when we travel from SFO.
New, A+ Service, nice stay
Stayed here a week on business in April 2004. Quite new, clean, very friendly staff - would definitely stay here again.
> airport side rooms a little noisier - consider further back.
> 'bay view' room not really much to see in the way of view. They are nice rooms, however, because they're on a corner with windows all around.
Definitely a good stay.
Beautiful Hotel !!!! Personal limousine service for free.
I stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites at Burlingame. It is a beauttiful hotel. I love the staff, they are very personable and friendly. If you make reservation, ask for the corner rooms. You will get the stunning view of the airport and the bay. Get this, the hotel has personal limousine service. You will be picked up and dropped off at the airport in style. I love it !!!
