Reviewed 14 September 2014

This hotel was amazingly clean and staff fantastic. Suggestions from Yaritza the front desk clerk for dinner included her offering different coupons for pizza. We didn't use the coupons but had the best pizza ever from Nino's Ristorante. Easy drive to San Francisco. Would stay here again.

Hello Jacky Jack R, Thank you for allowing us to host you during your recent visit to the Bay Area and for taking the time to share your words about our hotel and staff.

I had to go to a convention in San Francisco last week and found the rooms there to be outrageous in price. Found this hotel down in Redwood City which was near downtown shops and most importantly the Caltrain station. This made being going into San Francisco easy without a rental car while still being able to grab food and...

This hotel is truly a hidden gem. It was tricky to get to, even with GPS, because there are a few awkward turns off the highway, and it's partially obstructed by the adjacent Comfort Inn hotel sign. It has its own parking garage, but it's a tad tricky to get to the front lobby area from the garage. Once inside,...

I stayed here with a couple friends for 3 nights. It wasn't even open for a month when we were there but it ran smoothly. The breakfast was included and was pretty good!

When we pulled up to this hotel, I wasn't expecting much. It is sitting right next to a comfort inn and the hotel is above their parking garage. Surprisingly the rooms are nicely appointed and the hotel is very clean with a friendly staff. Though our room overlooked the lobby entrance of the Confort Inn, that was the only minor...

The hotel recently had a refurbishment and the rooms are fine. The room is very spacious with a large bathroom space too. The breakfast is not great but okay, it is served in a very small room.

The hotel was under renovation, there was no main lobby, no pool- indoor or outside- no where to go but to sit in the room. The room was nicely done, but we kept hitting our shins on the newly designed bed frames. Multiple times, and getting bruised, the shower curtain was too short for the shower and left large puddles...
