Geno from Cincy

Good location next to Milbrae BART station, plenty of good places to eat in easy walking distance and 10 minutes from the SF airport. Very good for short stays.

Quick Business Trip

This newly renovated motel is a great value and close to the airport. The rooms are surprisingly modern and was the first hotel of this trip that had ample outlets to charge electronics AND it had USB ports! I would definitely stay here again.

Some shortcomings

While this hotel sounded great in the description, I found it to be in a very noisy part of town. The building next door is under construction and adds to the regular traffic noise. The room was much smaller than what was pictured, and there was no bathtub, shower only. On the upside, the breakfast was decent, but not a great variety. Overall, I think the hotel is overpriced for what you get.

Good experience, Fantastic value

I had to overnight by the SFO airport. Complimentary shuttle buses on the half-hour, very close to the SFO airport and fantastic value. I'll definitely stay there again if the situation arises.

Good value, great staff

The Dylan was an excellent choice for its price level for a hotel near SFO. The staff was very friendly and helpful and allowed me to check into my room almost 3 hours before check-in time with no hassles. The rooms are not luxurious but they have the basics and are clean and comfortable. The proximity to the BART station (a 5-minute walk) allowed me to forgo renting a car. My only complaint is that the shuttle took way too long to pick me up at the airport. (35 minutes from when I first called them). They should consider contracting with a different bus company.

Excellent place if you do not mind the travel from SFO to the city

Its a nice quiet, clean and comfortable place. The room was large. The free breakfast was better than most places I have tried. The only drawback is that its close to SFO. So if you need to go to the city, its about 40 mins of commute. But since BART train station is only a block away, its no too bad.

One business night

- Front Desk - very helpful - 4AM pick-up for airport - lobby open and coffee /food available - this is exceptional! - 100+ TV channels - excellent - location - walking distance to restaurants - great - bathroon sink - quickly filled with water - drained extremely slowly everytime I used it - how does this happen when housekeeping must use it?
