    We didn't stay for long, but the hotel was nice. It had a really big and deep pool. The rooms were very clean, and the staff was very friendly. The wifi was also pretty decent. It was near a highway, which made it easy to get places. There was plenty of parking. There was also 24/7 hot chocolate, hot cider, tea, and coffee, as well as cookies, fruit, and candy, for the residents of the hotel, which was nice.

    Cons: Very small laundry room, it was only one washer/dryer. Also the bathroom in our room was pretty tiny.

    But overall a good stay, and great value compared to other hotels with the SF region.

    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!

    After Disneyland, we drove about 4.5 hours, well more like 6ish hours with all of our stops and California traffic to San Francisco for the night, just as a stopping point before heading to Yosemite National Park.

    This will probably be a bit on the shorter side because we didn't do much or spend much time in San Francisco.

    Driving Even the bloody gps had trouble finding its way through the San Fran city centre. It often plotted the car inside skyscrapers or told us to turn after passing the street. Sometimes it got confused and refused to calculate a route leaving us trying to 'wing it' in unfamiliar territory. Got free parking at motel 6 which was the only good thing about that place. Had the familiar scent of Hindley street on a Sunday morning. Driving down the one way streets somewhat resembled the ...
