I needed a place to relax at SFO after a long evening flight from the east after a long day in the east. Even though I was already a fan of Holiday Inn Express in general, I was very pleasantly surprised by how nice the remodel was of this location. The modern, comfy, and convenient atmosphere was fantastic and really...

Was only here for the night before an early flight. New rooms, linens, and furniture....walls are solid, and room was very clean. Stay here instead of the other Holiday Inn property down the road, and you will pay less and still be able to hit Houlihan's specials!

My husband and I love staying at the Holiday Inn Express hotels. Clean rooms, friendly staff, free breakfast (love the cinnamon rolls), free Wi-Fi, and courtesy shuttles all for a great price! Can't say enough goo things about this place! Very close to the SFO airport. Courtesy shuttle dropped us off and we were able to catch BART to explore...

Big room with King Bed that was extremely comfortable. We arrived late after missing numerous connections from Newfoundland and missing our embarkation for Cruise in LA. We chose to stay here because we had been travelling all day and we were picking up our cruise in the port at San Francisco. A quick check in, an great nights sleep and...

Big Rooms, just ideal for night stopover very close to Airport and complementary breakfast was just select items which would serve the purpose. Don't expect lavish breakfast and don't expect lot of amenities during the stay. Be very careful with the free Shuttle coaches from the Airport there are so many Holiday Inn busses picking up guest from airport there...

Who would have thought this Holiday inn Express would turn out to be the perfect place to meet interesting people and establish business connections but indeed it has.

We've stayed here several times in the past few years because of its proximity to the airport and great value in general. Staff are friendly, competent and accommodating (hi Tess!). Rooms are fairly good sized, always clean and the breakfast is just enough to get us going in the mornings. It would be great if the chain spent a little...

Tess and Fran are very friendly staffs. They always carry their smile when helping customers checking in. Hotel's lobby is very accommodating and I like the ambience. The room is very clean and smells good too. The free breakfast is not the best but tastes good and good enough to satisfy your craving for morning.
