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.

... off bus at Golden Gate Park and buy hot dogs and pretzel for a picnic lunch. 6) Hire bikes and cycle to the kids' playground and carousel where we chill for an hour whilst the kids blow off steam. 7) Catch bus back via hippy quarter and Japantown and get off at Union Square ready to freshen up before dinner. 8) Eat dinner at the Grill attached to hotel.

... and half what we paid yesterday Booked an SUV, called the bell boy and then checked out. Had a debate about Internet charges but won the argument and saved $105. Off in the SUV at 12:30 and headed to the airport for our 16:30 BA 248 flight to London, Heathrow Airport. Checkin was interesting.... Reminded attendant we were One World Qantas Frequent Flyers and he said ok, two bags each, so avoided all excess baggage charges, another saving this time $200, ...
... the bottom then walked the 200+ stairs to the top and took some more photos. We have never seen anything quite like it and I thought it was fascinating. Apparently the idea of the windy road started because it was too steep for people to walk on but I don’t think that street is any different from some of the others we have been up. The hills around San Fran are ridiculously steep. We drove up one road that seemed almost vertical. You wouldn’t catch me trying to walk ...
... up eating at food trucks. It's a blooming concept here in the US so it was another typical thing I could check off my list. Loved the atmosphere, the food and the concept! At night we went for drinks with our Sunday-hike-crew and before I even realized it was Tuesday, my day as an uber-tourist! Except for an actual visit to Alcatraz (it was too cold for a boat trip seen my tragic choice of clothes) I checked off pretty much all ...
Day 13 – The drive from Salinas to San Francisco was a treat through Wine County. Between the rolling hills, the vineyards and the farms, we didn’t tire of beauty of this part of the country. On the other hand, now writing almost a week after the fact, we’ve seen so much countryside the vistas have a tendency to blend in my mind. Thank goodness for electronically dated photos. Putting those together first help me a lot.
