Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Y1003CHTX Comfortable Bed, WIFI and friendly staff
Stayed here when my flight was cancelled(twice) due to the weather. Picked the location because it was near the airport and it had a free shuttle. The hotel was very nice. Prior to coming, stayed a hotel that was not so good so I did not get any sleep. Slept like a baby at Holiday Inn Express. The room was clean and the nearby restaurant is good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CT311 Nice, clean and comfortable!
This was a very enjoyable stay. Camille was wonderful. We requested a room with a bay view and she took care of us. The room was clean, comfortable, newly renovated and everything worked as it should. I've always been a big fan of watching airplanes takeoff and land so it was enjoyable having that view. I didn't mind at all hearing the low sound of the planes engines. We had easy access to the freeway and downtown was just 15 minutes away. The complimentary breakfast was good and the snacks in the lobby were great. I definitely give this hotel 2 thumbs up!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joe707 Undergoing Rennovations
This hotel is in a decent location, has fairly comfortable accommodations, and has a friendly staff. That being said, it is currently undergoing renovations and this has affected the hotel. My room did not have a functioning heater for either night of my two night stay. This was during cold weather at the beginning of December. The hotel responded by taking some off of the price of my room. I appreciate their responsiveness. I would stay at this location again once they have finished renovations.

Out first experience w/ Holiday Inn Express was in Seattle. We enjoyed our stay so much that when we needed accommodations for San Francisco my first thought was Holiday Inn Express. It was the best choice! The hotel is clean and comfy. They're currently renovating and updating which is all the better. It is conveniently located right near a freeway on/off ramp. Continental breakfast was amazing! A quality HOT meal to start the day. 24-hour coffee station, complimentary cookies at night, a convenient fitness center, nice firm bed, TWO pillows per person, and Bath & Bodyworks complimentary toiletries! We definitely plan on going back!

Great place to stay. Make it a point to stay in this hotel, when in CA. Its a place wherein the staff are courteous. The new makeover is an added bonus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EmperorDawei1 Love YOU guys BUT
I have stayed at this hotel about 25 times and have enjoyed the room and services provided and the staff especially the manager Mary and assistant Leyla. They are wonderfully gracious hostesses. But since the renovations have given a new and brighter face (well appointed ) The cost is being increased to cover the expense of remodeling which is perfectly logical. But The number of hotels that I have to stay when I am traveling, some 30 days at a time. I have to conserve my out of pocket expenses. If I were going for 1 day or a couple of days it would be great. But The International traveling I do, is just getting out of hand.and getting hit with the going rate just isn't going to cut it.
I have to keep my lodging some times 6 hours in a room, traveling alone, it just isn't worth it to me. For an airport hotel it's .
great. But, I would recommend the hotel especially since the improvements are in process of beautifying the property.

This particular Holiday Inn is not only aesthetically pleasing as the layout is gorgeous but the staff are incredible! They worked hard to meet all my needs and looked genuinely happy. The location is perfect! Easy access to transportation, great food and morning walks by the waterfront! I felt so comfortable and well looked after, especially with the complimentary water bottles and breakfast! Thanks Holiday Inn! I can't wait to come back!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by T12345 Issues Staying at this Location
Normally I find Holiday Inn Express as a great place to stay and am a Platinum member.
This one is different and may be due to the fact that it is an Independent and not part of the Franchise. So they have the name but not the quality.
My first stay had someone already in mu room when I tried to enter it. I went back to the desk and they said that was inmpossible but there was the person.
My second stay resulted in a unforgivable issue. I made a Wake Up and made sure that my room number was taken down correctly but I never got the call. Whe I called in the morning and ask why, i was told that I didnt have a request.
There are very few things we really count on in a hotel and not having to worry about a wake-up call is at the top of the list

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrZeus Our "go to" place when traveling SFO
This was probably our 8th or 10th time at this property. We do the park and fly package when traveling out of SFO, and it works well every time. The staff, room and breakfast are always excellent. Reliably good value, thus our repeat stays. Everyone, from the front desk staff to the shuttle drivers seem upbeat, welcoming, and the breakfast choices are great - substantial, fresh, with fruit, yogurt, eggs, rolls, etc., it just does not get better - a little crowded, but you can understand why.
We'll be back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mizmary Great pre departure rest and laundry facility.
Stayed night before early morning flight home. Desk clerk was very helpful with boarding pass issue. Early 5 a.m. breakfast hit the spot and laundry facility enabled us to pack clean clothes. Love HIE travel/park convenience. Our car was parked at another HIE during our 2 week vacation. Their shuttle service was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EnglishTraveller78 Just what is needed after a long flight, or just as you leave!
My wife and I have stayed at this hotel several times now and we find it excellent, and just what we need after a long flight from UK, or the night before we return.
Staff are excellent, friendly and helpful, and nothing seems too much trouble. There is ample car parking, so there is no problem bringing the rental car after landing.
A programme for refurbishment is progressing, and the newly decorated rooms are very good.
The views over the Bay are good, and there is a lot of wildlife to watch, as well as the planes landing at SFO.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SM4767 Great location and thoughtful "extras"
Enjoyed our one night stay. Convenient free shuttle from airport and very nice lobby area. My newly remodeled room was very comfortable and attractive with free water bottles, microwave, refrigerator and coffeemaker...nice surprise at the price.
Great breakfast and 2 big meeting tables off the lobby as well as free access to the internet with 2 desktop computers and printers in the lobby ... nice 24 hour coffee bar and iced tea and iced coffee urns were put out in the afternoon as well as fruit, snacks and cookies. The manager even came around to distribute ice cream and beverages to all the staff and guests as a special treat. I especially liked that he seemed to treat his staff with great respect.
They were obviously still in the last stages of their remodel as some areas were still unfinished but overall the experience was very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Red403 Always stay here when we travel
We always stay here when we travel from SFO, the staff is great and the service is wonderful. We always fly very early in the morning so do not get to try the breakfast so cannot review. Shuttle service is always prompt and we never have a problem getting to the airport on time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by outthere Due for an upgrade
This property is in need of an upgrade.
The lobby is quite nice and presents a very favorable first impression. Then you go to your room. Really beaten down with wear and tear. I understand from some of the reviews that some rooms were updated; unfortunately not mine.
On a positive note, the service desk was very helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VacationerFromIndiana Clean, comfortable, and a great value.
I really have nothing bad to say about this particular Holiday Inn Express. We only stayed here one night, but I was impressed. Honestly, because it was a hotel near the airport, I expected it to be run-down, not very clean, etc. But, this Holiday Inn was a great surprise. It was very clean, the room was more modern than I expected (I think it had recently been renovated), and the hot complimentary breakfast in the morning was way more than I expected. For the inexpensive amount we paid, this was totally worth it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Danny63 Everything is in good condition but the service could be improved
There were a few little things but I thought they need immediate attention:
1. Since the WIFI password is changed daily and I stayed there for 3 nights, so I had to ask for a new password every single day. And there were 3 separate occasions that when I asked for the password they were giving the wrong ones. So I had to call several times just to get the right password. And this happened in 3 different nights.
2. There were 2 days that an English language newspaper was not available. There was only Chinese newspaper still available.
3. My reservation was prepaid for 3 nights but on my last evening my magnetic key card could not open the door, and when I asked the receptionist to change the card, it took almost 5 minutes just to get me the new card.
