This Hotel is a little but outside of SF downtown but to save the extra few bucks during peak season is well worth it. Front desk was good and rooms were clean. Everything you expect from a Holiday Inn.

This hotel is average at best. The world's slowest elevator! Woke up in the morning to find a spider swimming in my water glass. Called the front desk, the response was "sorry want us to come up and look at it?" No apology or another word from the staff. Last time I will stay there!

I recently had an unscheduled stop in San Francisco and needed a hotel near the airport. Booked the hotel on hotwire and got a decent rate but was overall disappointed in the property. The hotel itself was decent enough but the area around it is rather grim and the restaurant in the hotel was terrible. Both myself and my companion...
