To start, I always stay at cheap motels and am not a picky person. I'm mostly greatful to have a roof over my head. However, I think sleeping on the sidewalk may be preferable to this. I'd expect this type of hotel for $30 a night, but the almost $100 that I paid made this experience even more bitter. The... More

I recently stayed at this hotel a few months ago with my company. we were there a few weeks needed to move rooms because the room was substandard. We were moved to room 319. when we brought the bed bugs in a jar to the front desk. They first try to say that they weren't bed bugs and then to... More

This place is there best in the area! We enjoyed luxury accommodation for a great price! The people are so warm and the rooms are clean! There's even an exercise room! Will definitely come back! And it's close to San Francisco and the bay area! Free WiFi and free parking!!

In the immortal words of Bette Davis, "What a dump!." This place is filthy. On the first night I quickly discovered how unwise it was to walk around in the room in socks as there was something on both the over-worn stained carpet an bare spotted floor either sticking to or tearing at the material. Not long after this some... More

First off please listen to these reviews, and dont be like me. I made that mistake and will never do it again. Now where should i begin.... The checkinn process took nearly 20 minutes. The man behind the desk was in no sort of uniform, and seemed to be on a serious depressant/drug. He did every thing in slow motion... More

This motel is worn out. The staff is not very attentive, the rooms are dirty, the furniture is old and torn, the rooms smell bad, the air conditioning is really loud (too loud to use), hookers bring tricks in from parking lot, there is drinking in the parking lot, there are truck parked behind it and they start in the...

Needed a first floor room (noted on my reservation)-mobility impaired. Pool...paved over. Bathroom mold. Remote didn't work... It is the worst Choice Hotel I've ever stayed in and I travel alot for business and pleasure. Dirty...really dirty. I agree with Steve R....I'd rather sleep in my car.

The location was perfect for our busy trip. We only needed a place to park, sleep, shower and perhaps eat. Free lighted parking was great and close to the door in the pouring rain..Everything looked clean and well kept. However, when we went into our clean room, as my husband opened the closet door, it came off the track. Then... More

My husband and I stayed here in 2008 on a trip to San Fransisco. We loved the place and stayed for about three nights then as well as our recent stay of this week 8/29-9/1. We take the Bart system into SF. The first time we stayed in 2008 we were on the first floor and the place actually won... More

This is one of the filthiest Choice Hotels I've stayed in, and I stay in this chain 5-10 days a month across the US. OK, there were no bed bugs, I always check. The bed was made although I'm not sure the sheets had been washed. They were old. The floor had not been vacuumed and you could see pieces... More
