I stayed a weeknight here recently, and arrived very late (2am PT). They were very accommodating, and the room was large, clean, and nicely appointed. Parking in the front is a little tight, but there are spots on the side that people often miss. Very convenient from 101 North, though going south and following GPS from SFO had us go...

I stayed here for 2 weeks whilst on a business trip. Whilst not bad value for money it is a typical hotel of this type, and a bit soulless and sterile. My room was spacious and clean, and the service was good. I had a fridge in the room, and a desk to work from, and a good bathroom. The...

What a great property! The rooms were nice and big. Facilities were clean. Parking was available and free. I had a nice time relaxing in my room and enjoying the many TV channels. The hotel is very convenient to the freeway making this a great choice to explore both San Francisco and San Jose. The bed was comfortable and everyone...

My wife and I were visiting my daughter and son-in-law in San Mateo so this was close to their apartment. We had a suite with a very comfortable king-size bed. There was no traffic noise although it was just yards from Rt. 101. The restaurant was nothing special but very adequate and very good service. We will stay there again...

Very close to the airport. The room are bigger than I would expect, especially for the bay area and are well equipped. No problems finding parking. Room service is quite slow at night, but I think the solo receptionist is doing everything by herself.

Nice, spaces room, very well equipped., wifi, TV, fridge, microwave, iron, and coffee brewer. Easy parking on ground floor. Great location for us, who was visiting family in SAN Mateo. Easy access from 101, but no no noise even though it's so near the highway.

We wanted 3 nights in San Francisco, but the prices were exorbitant so decided to stay outside the city & get the train. We chose this hotel following a conversation with Jessica on the front desk. She was lovely, welcoming & she gave us good advice about the shuttle which runs between the hotel, the airport and the Bart. The...

Our trip was fine, just could have been better given choices with other hotels for near same price. Yes - the hotel is just off the freeway (convenient) but the area is not one you want to go walking in. Rooms were very large and spacious. Very clean. Bathroom left room for improvement. The toilet is VERY low to the...
