The pictures are VERY good at making this look like an ok place. The location is great for heading to the airport, with that the shuttle does not run early in the morning so if you have a flight your finding your own way there. The check in the process was good, the guy at the front desk was very...

If you want a clean, average hotel room with Wifi and airport service, for a cheap price come here! It's great if you have a layover, they do have a continental breakfast but I had an early flight the next day. I reserved a room on Expedia after I got my luggage and came on the shuttle. Staff very friendly...

This year for Valentine’s Day I decided to surprise my husband with a 3 day trip to San Francisco. I spent about 4-5 hours looking at the Expedia.com site through the military.com site and planned our trip. Needless to say we were both excited about this trip. We flew to San Francisco, picked up our rental car and headed off...

Ants in the room everywhere. Rooms untidy. Dirty. Small. Dark and dingy. Poor lighting. Was very unimpressed. Was nothing like the pictures. The rooms looked like they hadn't been vacuumed in over a month. None of the lights were plugged in when we got there and I had to reach down in the knot of electrical cords mixed with dust...

I stayed at Hotel Focus SFO for a one night stay. My boyfriend was leaving the states for a 1 year contract job in Baghdad. He booked his flight to connect at SFO and had a layover in SF for 7 hours before flying out. To make the commute easier and for us to spend as much time together as...

Look -I can appreciate a 2 star budget hotel and have stayed at many. I also get that SF hotel prices are generally high due to demand. If the case of Hotel Focus SFO however, what we have is a completely unacceptable and inhospitable scam that's unlikely to please anyone at any price. To begin with, the hotel is perpetually...

Very basic room. Not inviting but it seemed ok clean. Just dark and dreary in hallways. Don't expect a typical bathroom. Small sink outside the bath and toilet. Basic yet tolerable. Unsure how clean the sofa was but just used to hold suitcase. FYI they do not have king size beds in the hotel.
