This hotel seems really nice. It’s close to the airport and the rooms are extremely huge. They don’t have breakfast at the moment because of the COVID situation but the front desk people are really helpful and friendly. The rooms are well lit and sanitized. I would highly recommend this place over those expensive small rooms.

The place was situated on busy El Camino Real. You'll hear vehicles and what's bad is, drivers drive faster in the early mornings and you'll hear them. The room's layout is okay, however while the housekeeper was cleaning out the garbage, she uses the same gloves/hands in touching towels to replenish the old ones. That's very unsanitary and due to Covid, who knows where she put her hands or what else she touched. Coffee cups? Bedding? Door handles? Elevator buttons? Good thing I caught her using the same gloves and told her I'll be getting my own towel from her cart instead of her touching the new ones but she does not understand English. So I went ahead and got my new towels from her cart. Who knows what they do if guests/customers aren't around. Using gloves that's been in the garbage then touching clean towels is a very unsanitary and unsafe. Due to Covid-19, wearing gloves is safe but cross contamination isn't. My room also wasn't cleaned or my bed fixed. I informed the front desk about the cross contamination and my bedding and also informed the clerk I'll be giving them this feedback and she said go ahead. There are other motels/hotels within a few blocks/miles to choose from.

Hello Manny, Thank you for your feedback however we are implementing very strict cleaning protocols. Housekeepers take out trash as well as can give you any needed items you ask for but cannot fix your bed due to covid19 protocols. It looks like you stayed with us for quite some nights and its disheartening to see that you had no issue with any of the service but the day you wanted to check out you wanted to leave your luggage at the front desk which was not possible due to lack of space and we apologize for that. We cannot hold any personal belongings for guests as we are a small hotel and we do not have the space for it. Our housekeeping staff is trained to follow cleaning protocols as follows; Sanitizing high traffic spaces and surfaces such as: Disinfecting- Doors & door knobs Vending machine & ice machine Guest key cards Elevator buttons All counters, cabinets, handles & windows Hairdryers & all restroom hardware Phones, remotes, thermostats, alarm clocks, lighting controls & closet hangers Sanitation of housekeeping carts & supplies are done daily All members of the housekeeping staff are instructed to wear masks & gloves while carrying out these tasks. However, we have still spoken to our housekeeping team about this issue to reiterate all of the policies so they are aware. We hope that you reconsider your review as we felt that all in all we did our best to give you a good experience. Thank you.

There was a big stain on the bed and sheets. Informed the front desk about it. Lots of street noise especially in the early mornings. The only thing positive was the front desk clerk, room layout, and nearby restaurants and stores. There are other places within walking distance, Ramada, Super 8, Comfort Inn and others.

Thank you for bringing it to our attention, we have resolved this matter promptly after you informed the front desk. We are glad to head that you liked the room layout and well as our staff. Its unfortunate we cannot change that we are in-fact located on the strip of busy El Camino Real.

I travel to San Francisco every few weeks for business and love this hotel. It is conveniently located just minutes fro SFO airport and the hotel offers a complementary shuttle service. The front desk staff is always friendly, welcoming, and makes me feel at home while away for work. The recently upgraded rooms are fresh and clean. IHOP and Starbucks just walking distance for a morning bite! Highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the San Francisco area!
