Back again!

by hs98 (April, 2015)

Reason for Stay: Just for the fun of it
Pros: Great spot
Cons: Construction

Back again for another round! Things went great. We were to our sleeping spot above terminal 3 landslide by about ten. Only two other sleepers all night. Construction workers tried to be quiet, but it's construction. Was cold! Also the Subway is now gone, so plan ahead on food. Security hung out in the area, cleaners came by, but left us alone. Overall, I felt Ike there were people around, but they weren't bugging me. Pulled a table over to our booth to box us in and help us feel safer. Peet's coffee starts getting stuff ready for the day (loudly, and I'm pretty sure that is in purpose) at about 4:00. Overall, another good experience.

(Guest Review) Thanks to a previous review, I headed to the arrival level of SFO's terminal two -- and instead of finding the expected padded chairs without arms, I found large flat ' shaped benches, pushed together, that made the for the perfect sleeping surface!

A few good Hours of Sleep in Terminal 2

by mattap74 (November, 2014)

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Airside
Pros: plenty of places to layout
Cons: All services are closed by Midnight

I slept in Terminal 2 Post-Security. It was on a padded bench with a back in the food court near a place called Burger Joint.The bench was not real wide but I am 5'10 200 lbs and I could lay on my back but most sleep on my side. I choose this place because it had tables and chairs in front of the bench and my bag fit under the bench. In short it felt safe. Last place to get a beer is Burger Joint or any food or drink for that matter. It closes at midnight. aka if you think you will need a water or late night snack buy it or else you are waiting til 4:30. There is a Subway pre-security 24/7. Recommended items to bring are: Blanket, Pillow, Earplugs, and Mask. The last two are most for if you are a light sleeper. I found the Temperature was just right. I slept from 12:15 to 4:30 with no issue. However,the only rest room continued >>

Worked so great!

by hs98 (January, 2014)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: Comfy booths, no one bugged us
Cons: Comfy spots fill up fast, Loud group near us

We, my seven year old daughter and I, flew from SLC to SFO kind of on a whim for an event. Flew out Friday afternoon, got on the Bart train, attended event, and rode Bart back, and then took Air tran to Terminal 3 since I'd heard about the 24 hour Subway from this site. Noticed that the front and back of each Air Tran car would make a good plan B for sleeping arrangements. It was about 10:30 when we arrived, and our flight left the next morning at 6:00. I didn't want to pay for a hotel, plus I thought it would be kind of fun. We got some subs (the employee was really struggling. We were the only customers and she messed up three things with our order, and took a personal phone call while serving us) and scoped out a booth. Good timing, because by about 11:10 they were all filled with sleepers! There are plenty of other tables for customer continued >>
