Good airport

by web-administrator (July, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Stranded overnight due to delayed connection and fog- apparently delays are pretty common with this airport due to weather. Terminal 3 has great food, with many shops that are open quite late (yes, you do have more options than Burger King!), lots of people even at 4 am on the airside, clean bathrooms and public areas, comfortable albeit bright sleeping spaces. It's also not uncommon to see quite a number of people sleeping on the airside. If you're flying w United, you can also go to the United info/ help and ask for extra blankets and an overnight kit that comes with toothbrush and paste, comb, shaver, and I forget what else. The best place may be the yoga room if you want a quite place to chill, sleep, or do some yoga. Do be mindful and courteous to others who also want to use it though!

United Club Lounge

(Guest Review by KarenDell) My husband and I were flying United Airlines from San Francisco to Boston on a red eye flight. We arrived at the airport early after a hard days work and checked into the United Club near gates 80-88. We were hungry and thought to go out to dinner but decided to check into the club first to see what was available. The food was delicious and nutritious - no need to find a restaurant. We had a great salad and hot mushroom brei soup that was so good. Most important for us was a kind lady at the front desk in the lounge named Linda. She was a great help in changing seats and giving us other pertinent information.

One of the best airports in the US to spend the night

by web-administrator (April, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) SFO is a great airport to spend the night in. I had a flight to Chicago at 8am. Hotels in SF are not cheap. The airport offers free unlimited wifi. I spent the night in terminal 2 where I found a great sleeping spot and had my pilow and blanket with me. The bathrooms are clean. A bit noisy but by 1am it starts to calm down. You will defenitely find other people doing the same. If you want to save some money, SFO wont disappoint you.

Ear buds are not enough

by web-administrator (June, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by John R) The seating is mediocre, all the couches are out in the open, under bright lights. I couldn't find any place to sleep where there was furniture and where it was not obvious. The staff are fine, they had no problem with me sleeping there. The biggest issue was the constant announcements. Absolutely killed any chance of sleep for me. Even if you have zen level calm or are extremely tired you will still be really surprised by these announcements. Noise cancelling earphones and earbuds are barely enough to quiet them down. I'm not sure if it's because I was exhausted or because there were no announcements there but I eventually collapsed and got three hours sleep in the hallway connecting the international terminal to terminal 3. Hard surface and gets pretty cold. I'm not sure what has changed since 2015 but this is definitely not top 5 US status.

I wanted to rip the speaker out of the ceiling

(Guest review Tired and Cranky) I was stranded at the San Francisco airport last night. At first, our flight was delayed, but it kept getting pushed back and the gate kept changing. Security was fast, and the airport was clean. There were a few restaurants to choose from, but it was not a great selection. The trouble came when our flight was moved from 5:45 pm to 9:30 am the next morning. The hotels were all filled and we couldn't change our flight. We were stranded in the airport. We found some couches in between terminals 1 and 2 to sleep on. The other terminal were inaccessible unless we wanted to go outside of security. The couches were okay. The problem was there was there was a speaker right above us that blared automated announcements all night long. Very loudly. I wanted to rip the speaker out of the ceiling. In case you were wondering, there is a USO lounge, you shouldn't take cab rides from unsolicited drivers, and you should inform the police of any unattended luggage. All fine information, but I did not need it yelled in my ears all night long. We would have moved, but there just were not many sleeping options. It was also freezing cold in there overnight. I never want to be in this airport again.
