Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by David1155 Great stay over near SFO
I had a great time staying at this HI Express. Shuttle was easy and convenient, the staffs are friendly and the breakfast was great. All in all, this is a good value for the money and a relaxing stay over while catching connecting flights via SFO. Highly recommended!

All was good, except there could have been atleast 1 hot vegetarian breakfast and secondly internet connectivity (wifi) was very poor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Helen42 Substandard holiday inn express
The paint was peeling off the shower wall and the bathroom was so small the door could hit your knees while you were sitting using the facility. Overpriced for the quality of the room.

Within close enough proximity to the city of San Francisco to make it perfect for our needs. The cost is well within our price range, along with the many extra features which are offered. Looking forward to return again later in the year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GusC Great for night before AM flight and car parking
Sleep, park, and fly package is great. Next door restaurant excellent for dinner. Included breakfast more than adequate. Every half hour shuttle service to and from airport is very good - this hotel is the last stop on the way to the airport. At the back of the parking lot you can walk along the bay and watch the planes landing at SFO - far enough away that there's no noise, just a fine view.

Our air unit was having trouble and the front desk changed our room immediately.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AnonymousTraveler Room and Overall State of Hotel Very Disppointing
The property is in desperate need of repair. Hallways were very dark, room had a slight odor, heating/cooling and internet didn't work. Linens seemed clean but thread worn. It was so bad that I didn't spend the night and booked at a different hotel down the road. I rarely stay at HEI's and this experience reaffirms why.
I would not recommend this hotel and am working with my corp travel agent to get it removed from our recommended list.
BTW - front desk staff was very nice but hotel really needs to be updated.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 98BYT unpleasantly shocked
Holiday Inn use to mean cleanliness, comfort and quality! This particular hotel is one of the dirtiest and most outdated hotels that I have ever had the misfortune of staying in. I was traveling alone when I stayed there (thank God) and am a military man who is used to less than "Nice" conditions sometimes but this place is sad and disappointing. I will have to say I was embarrassed when I saw all of the foreigners standing in line to check in because I knew they were being handed a key to a room that was well below what we are use to when we chose the name Holliday Inn, at least back in the day. The breakfast was ok and the staff was friendly but aside from that, this place should be avoided at all costs. Oh yeah, the police type crime scene yellow tape blocking the stairs in the lobby was a nice touch too~
Great job Holiday Inn :(

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by storyteller First choice for park and fly
Priority club benefits and reasonable rates. Long term parking rates are better than car park rates. This is my number choice when flying out of SFO.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TKwith Already someone checked in the rooms
When I checked in this hotel, the front man gave me first room key (room #126). When I opened the room 126, someone already in this room. Then I went back front, then he gave me next room key(#216). When I opened the room 216, someone already inside the room. I went back again.... and again....
Totally, three times it happened, then the front woman checked the room #125 before I go there. Then I can go inside the room.
The management the room is the one of the most important thing in the hotel business. However, they couldn't.
I will never go back this hotel and will not recommend to my friends.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by QmanScituate OK Place.
The room was great! I guess if I had to find fault I would say that the fact that there was some construction taking place and worn carpet threshold would be something to note. Also on my second night there, when driving around back to look for a parking spot, there were a bunch of young people hanging around a car sorta having a mini parking lot party. Made me a little nervous about leaving my car back there.
With that said I can say that when I stay at a hotel I understand that I am not at home and that maintenance has to be done periodically so I still think that it is an ok hotel.
Thought it was a little pricey for being an airport hotel compared to some of the other hotels I stayed at but again it was a nice stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GardeninginCO Looking forward to update
The San Francisco South property is under renovation. Great news. Currently the rooms are tired and dated, but happily were clean. The lobby was updated and nice. Wider breakfast options than I've seen at other HIEx, which I appreciated.
They did not acknowledge me in any way for being a Priority Club Rewards member. Maybe they aren't doing that any more. Pity, because it was nice.
Overall, the property was "fine." But it will be much better once the reno is complete.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PamC Like part of the family
I stayed at this hotel for 2 1/2 months that right there tells you something about the hotel. The staff was friendly and called me by name, they were extremely accommodating when I needed anything, staying at the hotel I felt like we were one big family. They are in the process of renovating and the choices for coloring and materials is wonderful I can't wait to get back to the hotel. The bed was comfortable and always clean and there was no stuffy smell like some hotels tend to have. I will always recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by regulartraveler12 Needs an upgade.
This hotel clearly needs an upgrade.Apparently the heat was on the on the whole night and no way we could turn the heat off and start the air conditioner as it was not controlled in the room.Very uncomfortable.The breakfast was average with very little room to accommodate guests in the breakfast room.There was an automatic pancake machine which took forever to make two tiny pancakes and hardly any fresh fruits.One of the nights there was so much noise and it took an hour for the staff to get them to quiet down but to give them credit they were trying their best to stop the noise.The hallways are gloomy as there were very few and dim lights..This place definitely needs an upgrade and definitely not worth the money we spent.But some credit to the hotel staff who were courteous and explained that the hotel in going to be upgraded and apologized.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ecurranrx will be nice to visit once construction is done
Good value stayed here on our first night in town, got here late in the evening. Shuttle from airport was very late compared to what desk clerk told us when we called. Airport south holiday inn express came once and the north hotel had a shuttle that came three times in the time I waited for this shuttle. There was construction going on so it seemed like we entered thru a back door which was very cramped. Value was good at just around 100.00 for the night. Breakfast foods were not very tasty but edible. Had a wide variety of foods, cereals, hot eggs, bacon, toast, sausage etc. Cinnamon rolls were yummy. Able to get some instant oatmeal and bananas which were good. Other guy checking out in front of me had asked for a wake up call that never was called, not good...Room was sort of outdated, needs some updates which are probably next on the list after the remodel of the lobby. Would stay here again for a night before or after a flight just due to the extremely low pice and the ease to get on the shuttle going back into the airport. There was a schedule in the lobby which was better on track for returning to the airport to pick up the BART the next day.

Room too hot, no A/C and fan useless. Noise from airport big but we expected that. Under construction, new lobby, could use better windows and a/c is necessary. Room small compared to other Holiday Inn Express...hope they redecorate it next...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jtbless Under Construction
The reason I would not recommend staying at this hotel is because the hotel is under construction and this is not noted ANYWHERE on the holiday inn express website. Upon arriving at the hotel, there are signs guiding you to the "lobby" in the back of the hotel. There is limited parking in the back of the hotel due to the construction and the entrances in the front are not usable during the construction. We were told the hotel has been under construction since some time in January.
There are taps and paper covering the floors of the "lobby" area leading to the elevator.
Upon entering the hotel room, there were 2 sets of earplugs on the end table next to the bed. I do not know if this is due to the construction, or to the noise from the airplanes flying overhead.
In the mooring when we awoke, the noise from construction truckers and machinery was very loud. We booked a pool view room, which obviously we did not have because there were cranes and other sorts of construction equipment blocking the view. When looking out the window, I do not even remember seeing a pool at all.
If you book this hotel, I would call and find out about the construction work and make sure to check the noise of the room where you will stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chicz Awards to Camillia
I stayed at this hotel for their Park-and -Fly service. When I returned to the SFO airport, I was told that the bus had just been there and I was notified by Camillia at the hotel that another one would be there in about 35 minutes. I was very upset and asked if she knew how much a cap would cost to the hotel to get my car and she told me that she would gladly pay for the cab fare if I wanted to get one. I told my wife that were were going downstairs for a cab and that HIE was paying. All of the other people that were standing in the rain waiting for their shuttle to other hotels were astonished and asked what hotel would do that. You can bet that they will be staying at the Bayshore HIE next time!
Many thanks to Camillia....you have a winner with her!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JB52 Renovations under way
While my room and the staff were great, the property is undergoing renovations. While I was not aware of that when I reserved the room, it might have been mentioned but I overlooked it. The rate reflected the renovation construction and I was more interested in saving money for my client then dealing with the inconvenience or complaining. The breakfast room was too small for the number of people that they were serving but it was easy enough to go to the room and eat. It will ease up sometime soon, I suppose, when the entry way is completed.

We stay at this Holiday Inn when we depart via SFO. We park our car and pick it up upon our return. We eat dinner at Maxi's restaurant, go to bed relaxed having reserved either a cab or shuttle for the morning ride to the airport. Great beds, comfortable recently remodeled rooms.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RSSA Not to my expectations for a Holiday Inn Express - mostly cleanliness
In my opinion, this hotel is NOT up to normal Holiday Inn Express expectations for maintenance and cleanliness. I realize the hotel is under construction. If this construction is to raise their standards - great; however, the construction should be completed FIRST before the hotel is marketed with other similarly marketed brands. I am also surprised to learn that I must "agree" to a multi-page, 40 point listing of Terms and Conditions to supply Holiday Inn with feedback. Good grief.
