    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express San Francisco Airport-North South San Francisco

    Wonderful Hotel!


    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!

    Excellent value!


    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.

    Good Stay


    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!

    ... last stretch left--toward San Francisco. As we got closer it got busier still and all the joy Mark experienced while driving across country for almost eight weeks quickly evaporated. Seriously, what a difference a day makes! In the first twenty miles after our lunch stop, we saw four accidents, one of which was a four-car pile-up. "I want my, I want my route 50!"

    On the bright side, we ...

    ... a weird guy on the bus who kept saying random things like "Can't this bus go any faster?", "Welcome to San Francisco, the wild west" and "Anybody got some pot? I'm buying". It was quite entertaining. With little time to spare, we had a quick look in some shops down the road and had dinner at a place called Super Burger - delicious veggie burgers but horribly flat cokes. Grabbed some necessary American junk food for the night (Whoppers, Cheetos Puffs). Got back to our ...

    ... I met Emilia*our manager who showed me to my room and gave me a mini tour before we met up with my ship roomie Debbie*, my spunky 71-year old seasonal coworker from California. We were brought to the linens where we picked up our uniform shirts and were shown the youth center. It's much smaller on this ship, but they make it work.

    We were given our schedules and I was sad to see I didn’t have San Diego off (I ...

On the other side we rode to Sausalito where we caught a ferry back to Pier 1. It was about a 15 minute ride back to Fisherman's Wharf to drop off the bikes. Took about 5 hours or so to do the ride.

The front of the restaurant is very dark and occupied by a large circular bar with long wooden casual tables at the side, then tables in the middle area with their collection of sake displayed in a tall cabinet. Then at the back half is a brightly lit area with a large circular sushi counter and normal dining tables occupying half of the space. We ordered some sushi, uni and mushroom risotto, two simple grilled vegetables with ...
