The San Bruno center is approximately the area of Downtown San Bruno and 2 miles west of San Francisco International Airport.

Welcome to San Bruno, the “City with a Heart.” Whether you're hoping to book a room in an upscale accommodation or you prefer something more low-key, San Bruno offers a wide variety of hotels for anyone visiting the Bay Area.

In its early days, the San Francisco Peninsula was home to the Ohlone people. By 1775, Spanish Captain Bruno Heceta had explored the area, naming the largest land mass on the Bay's western shore “Mount San Bruno,” after his patron saint. By the 1880s, much of the area's wilderness had been transformed into ranch land in order to supply San Francisco with meat and milk. Neighborhoods sprang up through the early 1900s, resulting in San Bruno becoming an official municipality in 1914. When the city formed, it was named after Captain Heceta's mountain.

Today, San Bruno is a bustling airport city thanks to its close proximity to the San Francisco International Airport. It's often the first stop for visitors flying into the Bay Area, and is a popular location for corporate travelers looking for accommodations close to the airport. Besides that, San Bruno features a revitalized downtown that continues to grow, making it a worthy destination in its own right. Whatever your reasons for visiting San Bruno, it's important to do your research so you can find the right hotel that allows you to experience everything this city — and the Bay Area — has to offer.

Best Time to Visit San Bruno, CA

The prime time to visit San Bruno is in the fall, from September through November. Temperatures are warm throughout the season but you'll be faced with fewer crowds, which will make getting around town more pleasant. Hotel rates also drop, which is nice considering that the Bay Area can be a costly place to book a room no matter when you visit. While many locals and visitors do head to the beach in the fall, don't be surprised if you have to contend with chilly breezes. It's always best to pack some light layers, just in case.

If you don't mind those cold bayside winds, you can save a lot of money during your trip to San Bruno by planning your vacation in the wintertime. December through February offer the lowest hotel prices of the year, which is a smart trade-off even if you have to pack warmer clothes. The Bay Area also features some popular events during this season, including Dine About Town and the SF Sketchfest Comedy Festival.

Spring offers a fine opportunity for travelers to beat the tourist rush while still enjoying average highs in the mid-60s. Although it's generally too cold for a swim in the Pacific, the weather is pleasant enough for strolling about town and visiting the region's many state parks. Not only will you enjoy lower hotel rates than during the summer, but you can also visit the Other Minds Festival, the San Francisco International Film Festival, and Carnaval San Francisco.

The most popular time to visit, summer marks the Bay Area's peak tourist season, resulting in more people and higher hotel rates. If you don't mind either drawback, you'll be rewarded with a bustling city that offers pleasant temperatures and plenty of water recreation. If you're trying to save on your summer getaway to the Bay Area, be sure to book your trip months in advance to take advantage of early seasonal savings.
