Very convenient for one night stopover between flights. The room was quiet, clean and very comfortable with a good hot shower and a bed for sleeping. Adequate breakfast included and shuttle to airport is also very convenient. Good price as well.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Dylan at SFO Millbrae
Good location, good service
I stayed at this lodge for 4 nights. This is one of the best lodges which I ever stayed. 24 hours airport shuttle and wireless internet are complimentary, and all staffs were excellent. The location is 1-2 minites walk from Millbrae station and circumstance is safe. It is good place to go to Silicon Valley (by Caltrain), San Francisco (by Bart), and Airport, even though you don't have a car. Rooms are clean and everything I needed were there and free.
Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff
This property is very nice for an airport budget hotel. It is located just a few minutes from the airport with the Millbrae hotel shuttle. I stayed at this hotel at two occasions in June and July of 2005. The property is rather dated, however it is well maintained and clean. The service is friendly and efficient. At both occasions I was checked-in by front desk clerk David, who was very nice. He was also the one who gave me instructions how to get from the luggage claim to the shuttle stop when I phoned the hotel after landing at SFO. I was surprised that this hotel is so quiet. It is very very close to one of the runways, just a block from highway 101, across the street from a BART station and at a very busy intersection. However I had a very good sleep both times. The hotel also has plenty of complimentary parking, covered and uncovered and also a complimentary continental breakfast. There are only two things that could be improved - the breakfast area is tiny, it only has 3 tables, so you often have to wait to be able to sit down. Perhaps the management should consider sacrifying a hotel room on the lower level and changing it into a larger breakfast room. At the same time I also found it strange that breakfast only starts at 6am. Airport hotels usually start breakfast at least at 5am.
Guest rooms are old, but well maintained and clean. They are also comfortable and spaciuos, although a bit too dark for my taste. All in all this is a nice, reasonably priced property for an overnight stay right off SFO.
Love the Cappuccinos
I stay here for the Park and Fly convenience. I come in the night before my flight to stay and park my car in their lot while I am away. They offer a free airport shuttle to and from SFO. Cheaper then the lots, plus I do not have to hassle with getting up extra early and drive 45 minutes to make my 6:00 AM morning flight. I have never met more helpful front desk staff. The rooms are well maintained and very clean.
I have stayed here several times. They have just added a breakfast room very similar to the ones I find in Europe. They now offer a variety of bagels, toast, cereal, yogurt, fruit, etc... The best part is the cappuccino machine. Press a button and you get a freshly brewed cappuccino with fresh steamed milk.
I definitely recommend this place.
Great Customer Service
Great find next to the airport. We had a late flight that was delayed and their shuttle picked us promptly, even at 2 AM. Tired and irritable the front desk staff was kind and efficient and had us in our room within minutes of arrival.
I had my laptop with me and I was pleased to find that they have free, high-speed wireless in all of the rooms--unlike the big hotels that charge you.
Overall we were very pleased with the cleaniness of the room and the outstanding customer service. We plan to stay here again.
Hideous, Did not honor Internet rates either
I had the displeasure of staying at this hell hole and wanted to express how I was treated by the management. I was quoted a specific rate through United airlines hotel system, but when I got there this hotel refused to honor the online rate and I was put into the awful position of having to pay their higher, full priced rate. The other hotels in the area were booked and I was stuck staying there.
And whatever you do be aware of the cockroaches in this place. But given the run down look of the place I guess I shouldn't have set my expectations too high.
If this guest indeed stayed at the Airport SOUTH T/L in MILLBRAE and not the South San Francisco Travelodge, (often confused with Travelodge Airport South) we urge him to contact us and we will address his concerns immediately and make any and all amends required.
Location was key
Stayed here for final night before leaving SF, due to its proximity to airport. Very nicely priced and the location was great. Right off 101, and one block to Bart station. 35 minute train ride to downtown and it cost about $3.50 each way. Room was clean, parking was okay too. Good value for location. Great place to stay for your last night if you rented a car and must return it in the morning.
Exceptionally clean, convenient and a great value.
The San Francisco Airport South Travelodge is exceptionally clean, convenient and is a great value. It's easy getting to the airport via a 24 hour shuttle. Cal Train and BART are right next to the property and that makes it easy to get to a Giants game or the City. I like the variety of good restaurants nearby and the friendly staff. I come here 3 or 4 times a year amd am pleased to see they have added DVD players with movies in some of the rooms.
Very Clean and reasonably priced!
I am always weary of staying at cheaper hotels because I am a stickler on cleanliness. I read the reviews on this hotel and decided to give it a try. I stayed there in July, 2004. It was very clean! Another plus is that it is very close to the airport. So close that the shuttle stops here first after collecting people from the airport for various hotels. It is also the last stop on the way to the airport. The shuttle ride is about 5 minutes. The breakfast was skimmpy, but nice. Juice boxes, pastry, and coffee. There is an all night diner across the street. For close to San Francisco, and the price, this is a nice hotel!
Convenient airport location
The Travelodge in Millbrae has a great park and fly program. They are only 1-1/2 miles from the airport, offer free 24-hour airport transportation and you can leave your car up to 10 days (additional days there is a nominal fee). The rooms are clean, well decorated and the raspbery twist danish is very tasty.

... 14km per hour whether it be on the flat, up or down a hill. Interesting to watch the operators as there is a driver and a brake man. It was truly a pleasant experience to be able to not have to walk. Riding along the side hanging onto to the rails appears to be the done thing and for many the preferred option. Sanity prevailed for us and we chose the safer option of being inside.

... the housing and volume. Each home it appeared shared a common wall there were no gardens to talk off. The Golden Gate Bridge that lite the sky like a beacon. After making our way to the Sheraton we headed out to get our bearings on to Fishermans Wharf! Boy what an eye opener people every where including the homeless, and that aroma you associate with weed! Quick late nite pizza at Boudine the home to bed, more tours ...
Well today was our last full day in San Francisco. The day started with our usual early morning walk. One thing we have noticed is the amount of homeless people in the city. This morning a pregnant lady asked us for food, she wasn't after money just food. She was certainly happy when we walked out of Starbucks and gave her a bagel and cream cheese for breakfast.
After meeting with Deb & Rob and Geoff & Sherrill we ...
... prison. Famous inmates include Al Capone, George Kelly and Robert Stroud and there are numerous movies and rumours about escapes from Alcatraz. Many of the buildings are in poor repair after partial demolition in the 1960s after the prison was closed. The main prison block is still intact with some cells and admin areas furnished as they would have been when the prison was in use. No woman were ever imprisoned on Alcatraz, blacks were segregated from whites, Mexicans ...
... Girls wanted to go to a candy store they spotted yesterday and for my own sanity I agreed just to get them to stop asking. We did our usual shopping for Christmas ornaments and a spoon for my souvenir spoon collection. And no I'm not in my 60s I just don't really like souvenirs and a spoon is small and can be displayed in one little box so I like it. Will bugs me but oh well.
Right now I am looking forward to sleep time. The girls ...
