The location was great for getting around. The room was a bit smallish but good for someone on business. It was very clean. It was remodelled and very tasteful. The management of the hotel was great. Since it is a small hotel, they know who is staying there. They seem to look out for everyone. Stay here is you like... More

Hillside Lodge is my home away from home! I always stay here when I am in town. Easy access to Caltrain and plenty of restaurants in the area. I recommend this place highly if you are in the bay area.

I had to wear shoes inside! 3) The air conditioning unit was old and noisy. 4) Nowhere to set toiletries in bathroom. Very sparse with pedestal sink, toilet, and shower stall - that's it! 5) No...
