Trying to find hotels on the SF peninsula were expensive so I stayed across the bay. The price was great and the hotel was very clean and quiet. It was close to several amenities. I was able to jog as well without any worries for safety. This was a nice little find and saved me lots of money.

Stayed here for 1 night while I was in Fremont on business. Clean hotel with a nice selection of breakfast in the morning (cereal, cinnamon rolls). They will even give you a to-go box if you don't have time to eat breakfast. Would recommend to anyone.
