We had to return the car today so it was an early start. It wasn’t too bad until we approached San Francisco [in the rush hour]. it was mega busy. We arrived at the hotel at about 10:30 couldn’t check in till 3:00 but they stored our luggage. The Bart Station is a short walk so we headed for San Francisco [it takes about 30 mins. We had …
... to ask, so what are we standing in then if not a tunnel?
We wound our way briefly along Chinatown which borders North Beach. The Chinese seem to be slowly taking over the area, but the Italian community should stay strong. Glancing up a steep staircase to Telegraph Hill, our hearts stopped - but alas our guide had a solution of another vantage point of San Francisco - atop the parking garage above the Central San Francisco Police Station! ...
... much to his annoyance obviously but it felt good to hold our heads high and walk past like seasoned travelers (or *****es which ever way you want to look at it) Get on the boat which is crammed with people. It's only a short ride over but we are super lucky to have a clear day so we get a few good pics of the City and the Golden Gate Bridge. Arrive on Alcatraz and we are the first group for the day so we have to wait and listen to some guy ramble on before we are allowed up the ...
Pretty boring three days as working all day in Bay of Islands and had patients all day. At sea for the next two days, had Carmen's leaving do on formal night and went to watch British Invasion (Well they did, I watched the last five minutes because had an inpatient) Gave her a card and a picture frame with a picture of all the girls in which she liked, really going to miss her. Then because the clocks went back we went to the crew bar for ...
... subway to a sea of homeless people milling around the entrance. We walked several blocks. It didn't feel the safest place in the world but we were ok minding our own business and not really engaging anyone. Our alertness rose when the sun started to go down, and we were careful not to look too touristy. A local white guy told us it would be wise to put our camera away because gangs often come out after dark and they would 'rip it off your shoulder'' given an opportunity. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn & Suites San Francisco Airport Millbrae
We enjoyed the location of this hotel as we were so close to the BART station we easily walked to the train and back each day feeling quite safe and avoided renting a car while sight seeing in San Francisco. The cooked to order breakfast was somewhat limited (We could never get there in time to get a piece of fruit) but the hotel and breakfast was fine for the price. The room was great as we traveled with two children and the two TV's and two separate rooms were great!!! The limo picked us up from the airport just as promised. The limo was quite old and worn, had dirty glasses with cigarette butts floating in them that was a turn off...but hey, it was a free shuttle to and from the hotel. The worst thing was the unfriendly, curt employees. Even the staff in the breakfast room seemed not to like the Qualitity Inn or it's customers. The hot tub really looked discusting and got greener and greener during our stay. Thank Goodness we didn't plan on using it, actually didn't see anyone else in it either...no wonder judging from the color, it was not appealing. I tried to break the employees during our 6 days, 5 nights there but just couldn't get many sincere smiles. The hotel was fine!!! There's a Taco Bell/ Pizza Hut right next door and a Burger King just a block away so that was convenient for a quick fast food meal. Maybe, the staff will get a bonus for Christmas and smile more.
August 2005. We decided this trip not to stay in downtown San Francisco and settled on the Quality suites in Millbrae, close to airport. This hotel was great. There is a new Bart station a block and half away, very safe area. Each morning we were treated to a fully cooked to order hot breakfast and upon returning in the evening (week nights) there is a Mgr's reception in the lobby with a table set up with appetizers with complimentary beer and wine. A very nice touch after a long day trailing around Fisherman's Wharf. The rooms are extremly nice and clean. We had a nice sitting area with a couch, two arm chairs, desk and TV. A little area with fridge, microwave and coffee maker and in the bedroom area we had a second TV. What a great holiday, I didn't have to wrestle the remote away from my husband, I had my own!!! The train station also has the CALTRAIN stop there, so you can hop a train to San Jose for a small fee. Nice trip.
Located just steps away from the Millbrae Bart Station, we found it very convenient to take the very comfortable train ($7.20 return) to San Francisco (runs every 15 minutes).
I stayed here during a San Francisco convention in March 2005 because my return flight was very early and this property was near both SFO and the airport's rental car return area. Given the location and the outside traffic, it was suprisingly quiet inside my room. I had a third-floor suite with a bedroom and a sitting area separated by a bath. And I was close enough to the hotel's wireless access point to be able to use the Internet in my room rather than in the lobby.
Stayed at the Quality Suites Millbrae for 3 nights. The room was clean, staff were polite and the free cooked to order breakfast a bonus.
Adequate but not again
Convenient resting stop from SFO but don't go out of your way to stay here. The breakfast is limited and served in a room that reminded us of a grade school cafeteria, i.e. practically windowless and you watch dishes being washed as you order. Also we were upgraded to the "Safari Suite" which is a cheezy theme room gone wrong. Not over the top enough to be campy but low end Vegas enough to be weird. The view from our room was scruffy at best. Staff was pleasant, room was clean, and we never tried any of the nearby restaurants. Parking is a problem if you arrive late, we had a "your car will be towed" note from the hotel when we left the next morning.
We stayed at the Quality Suites Millbrae for one night, prior to a morning flight out of SFO. We were able to stay for one night and leave our car for 2 weeks while on vacation. We found this hotel to have the best priced stay and park package. The hotel is clean, and the rooms were nice. Breakfast was good, but you could only get one plate full. The food was served by employees and you had to have a ticket to turn in. There is a free shuttle, which is actually a limosine that provides transportation to and from the airport. We returned after midnight and there was no driver to pick us up. The hotel had us take a taxi and they paid the bill! We will stay at this hotel again when needing a stay and park package. I am willing to answer any questions you might have about the hotel
Great deal and convenient location
This place was a bargain, considering you get a suite for less than the price of a room in SF. The interior corridors are a nice change from the exterior corridors you find at most of the other hotels/motels in that area and pricer range. Right across the street are some great restaurants (Chinese, Thai, and Italian, all of them very good!). What's best is that there is free underground parking, but there won't be enough space if the hotel is fully booked. Room was big, and had a nice separation between living and sleeping areas. There were hor's doerves in the evening in the lobby. Breakfast area was small, and the complimentary breakfast was so-so.
My daughter & I stayed here in March 2004. The suite was clean & comfortable. It had two TV's, king size bed, pull out sofa bed, microwave, and a small refrigerator. Breakfast was included & you had your choice of eggs, etc. There is an outside jacuzzi that faces the street but we still enjoyed it, even at night with the wind blowing!
Parking is underground & it is FREE! Price was reasonable and I would definitely stay here again.
Shuttle to the airport is also free & so convenient.
One caution: We ate at the Seafood Restaurant across the street & were very disappointed with the food & the prices.
First Class Location All The Way
From the moment we arrived we knew we were in the "Best Place" . Great park and fly package. Covered underground parking. Cooked breakfast and clean ample room. Limo service to SFO 24/7. Reasonable rates. We'll be back!
