After spending two full days in the hotel, our room had not been serviced as my son was not feeling well. At the end of the second day, he requested a roll of toilet paper. The staff at the desk chewed him out saying he was using too much paper, and he would need to purchase his own. The next... More

For those who would really rather stay in Palo Alto but can not find a reasonably priced option, this motel in nearby Redwood city will do nicely. The room was very spacious and had a microwave, empty refrigerator, hair dryer, and coffee maker. The staff was helpful and prompt. There is a small swimming pool with lounge chairs that was...

The room itself was clean and comfortable but pretty much average. It was the staff service that put this experience over the top! We arrived mid morning with an 8 month old who seriously needed to sleep after flying all night. Even though check in time was mid afternoon the staff immediately set to preparing and cleaning a room so... More

We really enjoyed our stay at America's Best Inn. The staff is super nice and friendly. The location is great - literally right next to the best Whole Foods I've been to with food and soon they're going to have a happy hour bar too. Its right next to downtown Redwood city with a live music club called The Fox... More

I booked for my 2 boys and myself. When I showed up at front desk, they said its only for 1 person, and needed to charge extra $30. I paid but called in hotel.com to double check, and the record is for 1 adult and 2 children. The front desk admitted its a mistake, but still refuse to make a... More

Thank you for your review. What happened here was that you reserved a room with a Queen bed thinking you had reserved a room with 2 beds (which costs more). The reason for the charge was because we gave you a rollaway bed which costs $15 per night (you stayed for 2 nights). We were out of rooms with 2... More

I made a reservation over the phone because the webpage didn't work. They never sent me a confirmation email, even though I called them a couple of times. Even with the reservation number, their "innsight" reservation site would not locate my reservation. Even worst when I had to cancel. I called the call center, they finally managed to locate my...

This hotel is within a 5 to 10 minutes walk to the Redwood City Cal Train Station. However, the room I stayed in was marginal at best. The wall lamps on either side of the bed were hopelessly skewed. Overall lighting was dim & the wifi signal was weak. The ac/heater blew the curtain window up every time it came... More

It was clean and acceptable until around 6:30 in the morning when they began roof construction. Insanely loud, and before 7 AM. I was livid, I'll never ever stay here again. We felt they should disclose something like early morning construction. NEVER AGAIN.

I am terribly sorry that we did not inform you that our roofers were going to start working in the morning. Our roofer originally told me that he would start working at 8:30, but started early without consulting me. I had a talk with him and he said he would not do it again. Luckily roofing only happens once every... More
