1st start reading Bren S. “WARNING” posting on 3/16/13. I agree with her post 100%, I was with her. The SMPD Event was nice but the hotel a disaster. Here’s the additional information that was missed. They have a sign with an AAA Diamond Rating at the front desk. What happen to this place? Was this AAA sign real or...

MERCY ME where do I Begin. This place was HORRIBLE!!! I wouldn't have even given it a 1 star but had to choose. Stayed here to attend a San Mateo Police function. Firstly if you book online be prepared for them to charge your credit card immediately. We booked a month in advance, bill comes & we hadn't even gone...

unfriendly staff, dirty room, nothing like the photos, orange juice machine not working for breakfast, don't stay here, fight in the parking lot sounded like staff, long black hair on chair in room, decent room, location good, good restaurants available nearby but staff refused to offer suggestions, bedskirt topsy turvy, the old tvs are still on the balcony.

The hotel itself is standard and customer service is nice but no staff available on certain time like early morning or mid night. The room is nice flat screen TV, Fridge, microwave. The cons : Hotel is next to trucking company for metal supply, 1 block away from a crossing rail road intersection , and some construction company right next...

We stayed at Stone Villa Inn at the end of December, 2012, and the place was great. Management very responsive (including mailing back a charger we left), and the place was clean and convenient. Obviously they had just upgraded to flat screen TVs and other amenities, because the old TVs were stacked up on a balcony ready to be taken...

This place looks ok on the outside. However, it is dirty on the inside. We booked several rooms that varied from ok to horrible. The best room was large fairly clean but smelled like chemicals. The other rooms were dirty. One room had wet carpet and the other had black mold on the wall. The owner is defensive and not...

We stayed here after a long drive from Santa Monica. It looked nice and the room (Queen) was a very good size with a large very comfortable bed, big flat screen TV. A few niggling problems. The shower head is very low. I'm tall so it's not a complaint as such but I havn't had the problem in other places....

I was to California on vacation for 1 week and I stayed in 4 hotels (Candlewood, Holiday Express, Stone Villa Inn and Red Roof). I have booked Deluxe Queen with Stone Villa Inn. Everything was excellent and way better than the other hotels I stayed, with the price being nearly half compared to other hotels I stayed at. Even the...

Everything is overpriced in the Bay area, but this place is actually reasonable. The rooms are updated and some other posts talk about the beds being very firm, which they are. The walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors all around. I would recommend a room upstairs. The second story walkway is impossible to walk on without being...

I stayed here on business.I travel frequently. This review is based on my experiences in the bay area. Curb appeal was very nice. the flower gardens are a nice touch and well taken care of in the front of the facility and also throughout the common areas, new parking lot which was freshly painted along with the entire building ,...
