Non smoking room reaking of smoke and deafening noise from starting/landing planes (bring earplugs if you want some sleep!). Arriving late and leaving early the hassle of trying to change room was not an option. Rather run down room but surprisingly OK breakfast and convenient shuttle to/from the airport.

We stayed one night to catch our flight back to the East Coast after visiting Yosemite. Accommodations were more than comfortable. Much better than I had expected. So close to the airport - great location with several restaurant choices within walking distance. The staff were so friendly - check in was great and when the desk attendant saw that I... More

I needed an overnight room convenient to SFO for an international flight the next morning. This property is older, heat/AC is antiquated, and my room was hot but did eventually cool off so I could sleep comfortably. I prefer central inside corridors when traveling alone and this property opens to the outside but I did not feel unsafe with an... More

This hotel is a great value when staying near the airport. The problem is that there is no place to hang as the breakfast area has only two tables inside. There is no place to sit and look at the bay unless you pay more for it. It's old and tired. My bed was comfortable, however. The plane noise from... More

As other reviews have stated, this motel is not new. However, our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. The walkway behind the hotel runs along the bay between the hotel and several restaurants. This is a very nice place to take a walk and enjoy the view of the bay as well as the San Francisco... More

The stay was terrible. I checked into the room and we saw three mosquitoes! We caught two in the end (lots of blood...someone had already gotten bit!) but one was in the room all night buzzing in our ears. We asked for a different room but the hotel was absolutely full and they could not do anything. The lady at... More

We apologize for the inconvenience of mosquitoes in the room. Had our hotel not been full, we would have gladly moved you to a different room.

This hotel is not very nice. The bathrooms were very inadequate, old and small. The carpeting, drapes and walls had mold that was visible. I requested a room with a view on the waterfront. What I got was a room on the first floor (it did face the bay) but there was a large retaining wall that completely obstructed the... More

Because of convention season, better hotels were sold out. While overpriced, was the least expensive room I could find near the airport, now I know why. At least I had a place to sleep. Thats the best thing I can say.

We stayed at this hotel because it was close to the airport. We were picking up friends early in the morning and did not want to fight all the trafic. Nice hotel, clean and safe, great location near SFO. The only problen with this hotel is the air conditioning system. There is one central system for all the rooms so... More
