Comply bed and good continental breakfast, shuttles run every 30 minutes to the airport.

Millwood Inn Impressions
I stayed at the Millwood Inn for six nights in March 2006 as part of a United Escapes package while doing some training for my company.
The hotel is actually an old-fashioned motor lodge, which is to say that it has outdoor parking and access. However, the hotel has been completely remodeled and refurbished.
It is very quaint and low-key, which I liked as opposed to the typical high-rise hotel style.
You must have a car to get around, as it's on the El Camino Real which parallels 101, very close to the SFO airport.
The Millbrae neighborhood seemed safe enough, and there are lots of restaurants and shopping places nearby if you're so inclined.
The hotel does not have a restaurant, but has a small dining room with a few tables for a continental breakfast. Contrary to literature, there is not a "hot breakfast", but burritos and rice and the like are available if you don't mind microwaving. The rest is typical continental breakfast fare. By the end of the six days, I must admit I was tired of the selection, and longed for some sunnyside up eggs or an omelette!
There is free wired AND wireless internet as well as free local and 800 calls, and even FREE printing, which I thought was great.
The room I had was a king suite; it was clean and well appointed. It included a refrigerator, microwave, iron, and coffee pot. The bathroom was clean but only had a walk-in shower. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in at a hotel.
In short, I would highly recommend this hotel, especially if you are weary of the monolithic (and dare I say boring) hotels that have become the norm.
If you have business in the San Francisco South Bay region, this is definitely a place to consider.
What a treat to find a hotel, very close to SFO, that pays such exquisite attention to every detail...from providing THE most comfortable bed and linens to the discreet recylcing containers in the room...everything is provided for the discriminating business traveller...and, the best part is it's incredibly reasonable.
Great amenities, great value.
Imagine Motel 7 sized room with top class amenities. WiFi/wired high speed internet (printer in the lobbey), fridge, nice cushy mattress, so many pillows, curved shower curtain rail, first class bathroom fixtures, pants presser, in-room recycling bins, walk-in closet, DVD player, the list goes on and on, for this price? Value can't be beat. However, the breakfast was far from what promised from the picture on their website (pictures to prove it, take a look) but having a steamed rice was nice touch for asian folks. Rooms appears to have solid walls, but you hear upstairs. Just a short drive to SFO. Overall it was very pleasant surprise. My credential? I wake up in a hotel room over 280 days a year from Motel 6 to Ritz Carlton around the world. Judging by my standard, this place is way above average. Thanks and Mahalo.
Great, Inexpensive Place
After reading previous reviews of this Inn, we decided to book the King Suite and we were very pleased with the accommodations. Having a micro and fridge in the room was a plus. The continental breakfast was better than expected with the opportunity for pancakes (frozen), make your own waffles (loved this!), hard boiled eggs and then your general continental food/beverages. All personnel we came in contact with were very friendly and helpful. The location is good as it's right off the freeway, about 2 miles from the airport and about 20 minutes from downtown San Francisco. We would definitely stay here again.
Pleasant place to stay
Great location, just off the 101 Fwy and a short distance from BART transporation system. The rooms were a little small but very clean. The hot continental breakfast was a nice added feature and the customer service was excellent. And if you would like to attend church services, St. Dunstan's catholic church is conveniently located, only a block away. Would definitely stay there again!
Simple, but pleasant, convenient, and comfortable
We stayed at the Millwood on a tourist trip to San Francisco. It was a quick car trip to the center of the city and a slightly slower trip (25-30 minutes) by the BART(the station is about a mile away). The Millwood provides an excellent complimentary breakfast. The rooms are cheerful and large. The only drawback is the setting; it's a one-story strip motel on a commercial roadway, but it's not noisy and the convenience to the Bay area and the airport stands out. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the price, for San Francisco, is a bargain.
Great Motel close to San Francisco airport
We enjoyed our one night stay at Miilwood Inn in Millbrae, CA. Clean, recently redecorated room with internet access. Very friendly staff willing to be of help and a great breakfast area and menu included. Highly recommended and only five minutes to San Francisco International Airport.
Wonderful accomadations including "Park & Fly" provisions
The PARK 'N' FLY arrangements were terrific along with above average accomodations, including taxi arrangements to & from SFO, and an adequate cont'l breakfast.
We were so surprised so find such a well appointed, CLEAN, and most resaonably priced room by the San Fransicso airport. I can not stress how clean and sparkly the room and bathroom/shower were. The breakfast was delicious and had so many choices. The desk person was most helpful both when we called ahead to reserve a room and when we were at the Inn.
Thanks you for a fine experience.

... came out and had incredible views of the bridges and Alcatraz. We even saw a rainbow. Good omen for the cruise. Started unpacking- we have two big suitcases, a suit bag, two small rolling bags and two totes. The cabin is fairly small with a queen bed, desk, sofa, and three closets. The night stands have a couple of drawers in them also. The bathroom is tiny but is adequate. I will need to be creative to get all my clothes unpacked and put away. ...
... how long we were going to be waiting. Hard for a certain little person who was suddenly desperate for the toilet but wasn't able to go because we might take-off at any moment! We landed in San Francisco at 3:30, splitting up to collect luggage and get the rental van sorted. This time we have a massive 15 seater, plenty or seats but no boot space which makes it a little awkward to get the bags in the back seat but there we go. Our flight being delayed ...
... to it, the people were super friendly, and it was just really fun to be there and hang out with my tour family.
After a couple of drinks we decided we'd better head back, seeing as we we had all decided to meet for breakfast to say our final goodbyes. Unfortunately we had to settle for taking regular taxis back to the hotel, but we got there nonetheless. All in all a fun, fantastic, fabulous evening with people who I hope to be friends with forever. Peace out from San Fransisco ...
... establishment which was different and every table had games to play like monopoly or trivial pursuit.
We decided we would eat there as the menu was interesting. I decided on the Cajun Gumbo and by jeez was it off the Richter scale for me had me sweating and wishing I had ordered something else , very tasty but way out of my comfort zone. Woody you would have really loved this, meanwhile ...
... to people who are trying to still make their connecting flights...some are not going to make it and others need to RUN! The attendants move up all of the people who need to get off quick to the front of the plane and we wait to land. The attendant also tells us to log into United and tells us we are being compensated for the plane from hell (no she didn't call it that) Can't wait to see what we are getting...who thinks a free ...
