Hotel is small, but clean. Rooms are decent size. On busy street in San Bruno, but quiet. Airport shuttle is only once per hour, not super convenient. Not much nearby to walk out. Cost about $200, which may be OK in this area.

You need to ask the hotel about this. I don’t work for them. If you have a car I would strongly advise you try to check in early and then go where ever. If you don’t have a car, then I would say go do your things first... More
