Personal at front desk was a little rough.i understand the situation we are living but breakfast was barely nothing.

Good price very a nice decent hotel right next to McDonald's for late night munch. Airport is not that far. Staff was nice. Only thing is you have to pay for parking.

Great location & Free shuttle to the airport. Very helpful friendly staff, including the driver of the airport van. The breakfast was good.

All was Very good. Our flight arrived after 1am, YUNEZ at front desk made adjustments to our check in to make our stay a great experience. The entire staff was top shelf.

First room assigned, the door key wouldn’t turn green, had to get a replacement key card. Then once door key worked, the door’s dead bolt would not recede, so couldn’t shut the door. Second room the key card also wouldn’t work so had to get a replacement card. TV powered up but I had to be a genius to figure out how to get it onto the correct HDMI input to see anything, as desk failed to answer the phone call for help. A single coke from downstairs lobby shop was an outrageous $3.99; there was no vending machine on my floor, as had been stated in the hotel info booklet in my room. Never been so disappointed in a HIExpress site. Express is normally my first choice. But never again at the one identified as SFO airport North, 373 S Airport Blvd, South San Francisco.

Renovations! Great location and breakfast. Easy checkin

It’s convenient, close to the airport. The room was mostly clean (besides the stained curtain). The service at the front desk was ok.

Very friendly staff. Comfy rooms. Very clean. Close to airport

Close to Airport and close to for gas and close to McDonalds for dinner and close to exit off 101🌞😻👍😎😍⭐️😜👏😃😊

Friendly staff;noisy in the early morning; breakfast didn’t have gravy for biscuits and gravy; pancake machine was broken.

The property is right next door to some type of warehouse that drops dumpsters and has back-up noises (beep-beep-beep) starting at 7 in the morning. Can't sleep with all that racket going on. The property itself is okay, but the location is not acceptable. Also, the check-in staff was severely lacking. Only one agent made for an agonizing and slow check-in. At 10 at night, you just want a quick check-in and to get to your room quickly--not a 30 minute wait with no one to help.

The noisy warehouse next door is a BIG turn off. Also, only one person to check in for a hotel is bad. One slow check in has the people lined up out the door.

Super clean and location is great. Staff was really dry during the check-in process. Handed my key and said thank you. Provided no sense of direction of where my room was located (i.e., second floor, to you right, take elevators, etc.).

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. We strive to deliver a great guest experience, but it sounds like your time with us did not meet your expectations. At Holiday Inn Express SFO, we usually receive numerous compliments for our professional, friendly, and helpful staff, and we are disappointed to read your comments in relation to your experience. This is not the usual feedback that we get, and we will ensure that our front desk personnel is aware of your impression and see to it that our staff endeavors to make sure that each guest has the positive experience that we aim to provide. Your comment about breakfast is duly noted. Please know that our breakfast offerings have been reduced to ensure adherence to safety standards in the wake of the pandemic. Also, certain items have been temporarily suspended due to C19 health concerns. We sincerely hope that these aspects of your visit will not deter you from staying with us again. We look forward to an opportunity to redeem ourselves with you and delight you with the top-notch stay that the vast majority of our guests usually have with us. Best Regards, Holiday Inn Express SFO Customer Experience Team
