Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express San Francisco Airport-North South San Francisco
We just returned from a trip to San Francisco. We decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Express San Francisco Airport North. It is a wonderful property with very clean, large rooms, friendly staff, great amenities, and an excellent breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to business or leisure travelers. It was a terrific hotel for our family vacation!
We got a AAA rate for $75/night and were surprised what we got for the money. The room was quiet and very spacious with all the amenities one can expect. The staff is helpful and there are several restaurants nearby. The only drawback was the complimentary airport shuttle. It was by far not on time - neither on the way from the airport to the hotel nor from the hotel to the airport. Additionally, you had to make a detour to collect and drop guests of the Travellodge and the La Quinta Inn. The hotel should definitely change the shuttle service company. Besides from that, everything was very nice.
Very nice hotel property-close to the airport. The room was lovely. Very good breakfast. However, the front desk was totally inefficient and irritating. I waited twenty minutes to be checked in only to be told my reservation wasn't in the system. After waiting for the other patrons behind me to be checked in, the clerk finally double checked and found my reservation. Checkout was equally frustrating. Hire more (and friendlier) front desk staff.
Great stay close to the airport
The foyer of this hotel makes you feel like you are in an expensive hotel. We had a very clean room and lots of choices for the complimentary breakfast. This is a great stay for a great price and very close to the airport.
Convenient to Airport and Highway 101
We spent one night here on a return trip from the coast and found it very clean and comfortable. The rooms are spacious and visually appealing. Be sure to have dinner at the Hungry Hunter right down the street!!
Don't mistake with another Holiday-Inn nearby !
Great stay, quiet, pretty new room, and staff was very professional. Good for the price. WARNING: When you reserve online, do double-check to make sure you didn't reserved the "other" Holiday-Inn 2 blocks to the north, with a similar name. My partner made this mistake and he was stuck in a smelly-old motel complex from 70s. Check the street address on the printout and if it says "275 S Airport Blvd", then you are recommended to cancel the reservation as he did.
Good hotel, far away from San Francisco
It's a very good hotel (clean, big room), close to airport, but far from SF. It has a lot of good extras: free fast internet, delicious breakfast included, parking included, free airport shuttle.
It's not convenient for travelers that come to SF for tourism, especially if you don't want to drive. Hotel is 20 minutes away from Caltrain station (plus a 25 min train trip to SF center). Also, you can reach SF by bus (45 min).
But hotel itself it's ok. Very clean, looks as new, well noise-isolated, not very expensive. In the middle of a industrial estate, thay are some restaurants around, but any other sign of life.
Great end to our holiday!
We stayed here for 2 nights early June 04 and found the hotel to be extremely pleasant. Location wise it is near San Franciso Airport (few minutes drive) and about 20mins drive to Downtown San Fran.
We had a what seemed to be a newly deocrated room, very large (which was great as this was our last hotel before we came back to England and meant we could spread ourselves out to pack). The room came equppied with a huge bed, safe (we think this was free to use but didn't use it ourselves), tv, coffee maker, hairdryer, fridge and microwave. There is free Internet access but only to those that bring their own laptops. Additionally there was a door from the car park (parking free for hotel residents) straight to the lifts which made manoeving our luggage very easy.
The breakfast was pleasant and staff were very friendly. For dinner we walked (probably best to drive) down to the 'Hungry Hunter' steak house which we thought was great! (They also do room service for you if don't want to make the trip.)
All in all a great end to our 3 week trip in America.
Both Visits Were Great!
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Airport North in October 1998 and October 2003. The room is comfortable in every way (firm bed and perfect room temperature), the restaurant is convenient and serves delicious meals, and the staff is friendly. We enjoyed our workouts in the fitness room. We also appreciate that the parking is free. We will definitely stay here a third time.
Loved the Wingate!
A great price performer this is! For business traveller in need of good hi-speed internet access, the T1 bandwidth gives you top grade performance in this hotel! Very tastefully decorated, simple with big projection TV at the morning breakfast foyer! It makes one feel so at home with lovely and helpful staff all the time. I had a wonderful time in San Francisco for business and pleasure with the Wingate!

... we took the ferry boat back across the Bay so we could have dinner at Fisherman's Wharf (at Boudin's - yumm!)
Greg and I spent a lot more time on our feet than our backs and feet like, but tomorrow we'll be heading back into the city (by car this time), to do a bit more looking around before we go see Beach Blanket Babylon.

He'd rip a button off his shirt and throw it hard against the ground, and then see how long it would take him to find it in the absolute darkness.

... into the restricted zone and had it out with a security guard who couldn’t even tell me exactly how to do it either LOL. We finally figured it out and rode across the bridge. It was windy and very very high up. There was a lot of noise from the cars too. Will told me later that there was a crew that worked year round to paint it nonstop! It seemed pretty rusty to me. After we crossed we rode up and down hill to a nearby town Sausalita ...
... an unique experience. It feels kind of sad to be there, but it's nothing like the legends about it. It's true that it was impossible to escape it, but the conditions in the prison weren't inhumaner than they are right now in modern US prisons.

The bridge is of course one of the main attractions in SF and a national landmark. You have the best view on it from the Baker Beach. The bridge itself is accessible by car, ...
