Stayed for a night as leaving for early flight. Its good value but the room was soo noisy thought i was sleeping right on the freeway. Its quite clean but old style refurbishing... Downside was that you will need to pay for parking which wasnt stated on the website.. Meh

Lied about me smoking in the room and charged an extra 100 dollars. The room was booked through Hotels.com. Once I got to the motel, they take $100.00 deposit which was never credited. I was never notified, never did I get an invoice for this charge. Once I got my credit card statement, I investigated and was told that I...

If I had not paid a hugely inflated price for what this property turned out to be, I might have given a full 2 stars. It was worth 1/3 of what was charged. Make no mistake, this is a MOTEL with all rooms facing the parking lot and noisy commercial street. How can they call it Hotel? There was also...

A typical motel type. Close to the airport. Rooms are clean but simple. Free shuttle van starts at 4AM to SFO. Very close to South SF where you have lots of restaurant choices. From our room we can see the busy highway but not much noise.

We booked for a full week and then after staying one night our plans changed due to an emergency. They would not refund us our unused nights and indicated that they had clearly explained their "policy". Totally untrue. Beware....do NOT STAY HERE.

They cancelled our booking (made three months ago) via email as I was flying transatlantic. Then didn't respond to four email sent from stop over.

This was a cheap alternative for our weekend stay in San Francisco. It is within walking distance from a bunch of eateries and really close to the airport. Don't expect too much but it was a clean location and I would visit again.
