Positives: The room was large and nice.

Negatives: We tried to order room service but they closed earlier than stated and forced us to go elsewhere.

Comments: Overall the experience was okay, but I wouldn't say that it was excellent. We tried calling room service at 10:30 (our plane arrived at 9:30 and the room service was supposed to be open until 11) but no one answered the call. However, the room was nice and it worked well for our cat.

Negatives: Understaffed.

Comments: Very close to the airport, friendly staff, but it seemed understaffed in my opinion. There was a line at check-in and also the restaurant staff seemed a bit overwhelmed. That being said, all in all I would recommend the hotel to others.

Positives: Convenient location to the airport. Friendly staff.

Negatives: $12 to park at hotel as a guest. Elevator smelled bad.

Comments: Overall, the staff was very friendly and the location of the hotel is excellent in relation to sfo. It is, however, a little noisy due to air traffic and you have to pay $12 a night to park at the hotel even though you're staying there as a guest. The elevator smelled awful, but the room was clean and I have no major complaints.

Positives: The room was nice and large.

Negatives: The pool was not heated.

Comments: For being so close to the air port it feels quiet. It was easy to get to down town S.F. It has a nice open court yard and pool area that is nicely shaded with mature trees. The entry off of the main road is not well marked and only says Clarion airport parking by the parking lot ticket gate. So I kept driving past it.

Positives: How nice the hotel and its amenities were.

Negatives: The daily parking fee.

Comments: This hotel is great if you want to fly out of San Francisco's airport because the hotel is next to it with free shuttle service. The hotel has a steep parking fee. The hotel itself was very attractive and nice at the price to stay on a Friday night. However, I wish I had not tried to reserve a hotel near the airport. At the time, the hotel seemed like a good deal and it was only 16 miles from my real destination, San Francisco. I could have stayed in San Francisco for that much and I would have been closer. This is a warning for those like me who do not realize not to stay near the airports when it is unnecessary.

Positives: Near the airport, easy access to freeway, rooms is big, cheap internet access.

Negatives: Hear the planes taking off due to being beside the take off. You have to pay for parking in the hotel lot. Hard to find a parking space, spaces small.

Comments: For the price including the parking fee it is almost the same as the better hotel in the area and might not have to deal with airport noise, due to being beside the plane take off area.

Positives: Comfortable bed.

Negatives: Lousy restaurant. Parking not free.

Comments: Very close to the airport. The room was clean and bed comfortable. Not a good location for those without cars. Car parking was not free. The restaurant was not fully open when we were there, only seating available at the bar (which was full), so we had to go to the Westin (next door) which was more expensive.
