My wife and I had an early flight from SFO so we started looking for bargains near the airport. Unfortunately, there are no "bargains" so we took the cheapest of the well known hotels closest to the airport which was the Hilton Garden Inn. It's very easy to get to. Good menu in the restaurant in the hotel. Rooms very clean with all the amenities. Shuttle times were not posted on their website but they run starting at 4:00 a.m. and on the half-hour. Unfortunately our shuttle had several grumpy travelers who didn't cut our shuttle driver much slack ("Can't you go any faster?", "Be careful with that bag. I paid a lot of money for that thing!" etc...) but he took it all in stride.
Solid thumbs up and I only wish it was a little cheaper, but then, after all it's San Francisco!

The Hilton Garden Inn San Francisco Airport North is just two miles from SFO Airport, off Highway 101, and is only 10 miles …More

First of all just the enviornment and ambiance of any embassy suite is worth the stay! Spacious room, includes a living area. Free amazing breakfast, free drinks/cocktails from 5:30-730pm. (Make sure you take advantage of all the amenities offered! You will definitely get your money's worth!) The only downfall which is not a big deal was the pillows for me they were extremely thick and hard but that is just a personal opinion. Also in this area there is another embassy suites with bay views I would recommend you stay! It is a little nicer :)

SFO airport is only 3 miles away, and there's a free trolley to downtown San Francisco on Fridays and Saturdays.More
