(Guest Review by Canuckyogi) Terminal C - gates 96-100 you will find some space age comfy chairs to rest up in as well as large free form padded lounge couches. I slept here undiisturbed by anyone except for the 'announcement' regarding not leaving your luggage unattended. There was 1 other traveller at the other end of this 6 metre seating area, we both had our shoes off & I managed to get 4 hrs in till my 4am check in. Safe, clean & a bit chilly so remember to have a jacket or large scarf with you! A pleasant 4 hrs.

Not bad at all, just very average.

(Guest Review by @airportfotos on Instagram) the Delta Terminal at SFO is fairly small compared to the United Terminal and International Gates. I have had to sleep here 5 times just in 2016, the most recent being last week. The window sills are elevated and very wide, nearly the size of a queen sized bed between each concrete beam holding up the terminal, however those window sills where you lay are 100 marble or some sort of tile, and a very good conductor. So the already cold terminal and make you even colder if you don't have some sort of blanket to put down on top, as well as cover you. So if you do have to sleep in the Delta side, I recommend coming prepared with 2 blankets. Or else it will be very very cold. There are no 24 Hour eating options on this side of the terminal, so be prepared for the as well.

Good airport, rip-off shower service

(Guest Review by Aussie) We found services, paid and volunteer helpers, BART access, and organisation at this airport efficient, friendly and comfortable. But the person running the (paid 25 each) showers at the International Terminal seemed rude to us, interested in the money but not in helping people, refused to allow my partner to wait in the empty waiting room while I showered. No chair inside the showering room, or hooks to hang clothing on. I'd recommend they give this service to another company.

A great night sleep

(Guest Review by Hal) Thankfully I packed light and did not have any checked luggage. We landed around 11:50pm - some of the latest flights to arrive. Nothing to claim landside, so I decided to stay airside at the American Airlines terminal (although I did fly Delta, and they have smaller and uninviting terminal). Remember, everytime you come to a fork in a terminal, always pick left for quieter area (people gravitate to read left to right, so at a fork, they tend to go to the right, thus left is generally quieter). The padded seating unfortunately have individual armrest (all of them), although they are not deep enough to the edge of the seats. I managed to laydown sideways and did not fall through the night. I had a pillow and sleeping bag, as well as earplugs and eyecover, so I came prepared. Yes. The lights were bright, and to my delight, the announcements did not come as frequent as everybody else describing here. Around midnight, the cleaning crew started to make their way around clockwise, leaving some of the areas clean and inviting to stay. They did not say anything to me, and I saw two other airport surfers at the same vicinity. Around 5:30-6:00, passengers started to arrive and when I woke up, they were within my gate, so there was lack of privacy. Again, I should have pick a different gate, as the row of gates in the leftside of the terminal actually stayed somewhat quiet until around 8. One of my best experience of sleeping at the airport!

(Guest Review by AC Eddie) I had originally planned to sack out in a Yoga Room but when I arrived at 11:30 PM to the Yoga Room between Terminals 1 and 2 the cleaning lady was locking the door. I thought they were supposed to be open 24 hours, but she seemed uninformed. I asked if she could tell me if the one in Terminal 3 was open and she said sh didn't know. Not much help from her. I was a bit dazed and confused at that time of night after a full day of travel. I started to make my way to Terminal 3 but lost my way and exited past the Security Area and was not able to get back air side. I asked the Security person and she said people who intend to sleep at the airport usually find the Peet's Coffee place a very quiet area. I made my way upstairs to the third floor and found several people sacked out already occupying the two best padded booths. Having planned ahead I unfolded my exercise yoga pad and sleeping sack and placed them behind a conveniently located quiet column for privacy and fell asleep in about 20 minutes. Nice to wake up to the smell of fresh roasted Peet's Coffee the next morning, refreshed by a decent sleep at SFO
