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!

... of the island and round to the parks which overlook Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, the most iconic bridge ever made, it was so cool to see it in person when we've seen it so many times before.
It's weird how these places seem familiar to us, even though we've never seen them in person, because they're so often depicted in movies and on TV. We walked up and down the hills and long, steep streets that we've seen so many times ...

It was amazing crossing over to California - everywhere was brown with the heat and my god was it hot especially passing by Sacramento - about 35C, I reckon. The 6 lane highway was stacked up and Bridget got a bit hot and bothered at one point (so did I) but we got through it and ...

Approximately halfway, we stopped for lunch in Auburn, California at Ikedas, where they claim to sell the "best burgers in California." Now, they wouldn't be saying that if it weren't true would they? They were good burgers. Once home, we intend to be virtual vegetarians for at least a few weeks because there's too much meat while on the road.

The odds were very long though many dies in their attempts, most others were swiftly recaptured. One escape remains unsolved - the 1962 attempt by Frank Morris and brothers John and Clarence Anglin, immortalised in the 1979 film starring Clint Eastwood Escape from Alcatraz.
