I would like to recommend the Homewood Suites for your next visit into the Bay Area. Our stay there was truly wonderful. We couldn't be happier with the choice. The amenities were well cared for, the staff were both cheerful & very helpful. There are a host of fabulous restaurants within walking distance & the harbor is always inviting. We... More

The entire staff is friendly and helpful. Some guests are completely rude and intolerable while others are simply rude. If the staff moved to a different hotel, I would stay at that hotel instead. They make it a point to know my name and greet me whenever I come or leave. The hotel is what I would expect, but the... More

This hotel met every expectation we had when we arrived. The rooms were clean, fresh, and very spacious. The staff was more than accomodating. The complimentary breakfast left something to be desired, not many choices and basically frozen entrees served. Coffee, juices, cereals, etc were normal service items and kept filled. Overall, a very relaxing and pleasant experience.

We got the two room suite as we were visiting our daughter and she was able to stay with us. The breakfast was great and saved both money and time in our day. Nice setting as well by the water. Room was very clean and the kitchen area was nice to have.

Room faced busy highway was extremely expensive for the price. Though there were rooms facing the water available the additional cost was extremely prohibitive. Very little purchase from the in house store. Hotel took us to the local store in a bad neighborhood to purchase for free but left us standing in a bad neighborhood for 30 minutes waiting for...

So…I had a really pleasant stay at the Homewood Suites in Newark, CA and was really happy with guest services there and was looking forward to this stay because I’d booked a water view room and the hotel is on the harbor and I figured I was in store for a relaxing weekend. Unfortunately, from check in to check out,... More

The location is not the greatest, but there is water and boats right behind the hotel. The hotel has tables and chairs where you can sit and enjoy the view.

The area of town seemed very sketchy, and the road it's on is very dirty. The food was nothing special, the tables were often very dirty and you have to put your own dishes away, often having to touch other peoples dirty plates. The elevator often started to move before the door closed. The suite was spacious, but the bathrooms... More
