The customer service here is terrible. Breakfast attendant was incredibly rude. Came back from a long day at work and realized my key was no longer working sat in lobby for over 30 mins to a sign that said "back in 5". Traveling here on business and I would never book here again.

Very friendly staff, nice pool, Science Journal in the lobby (never had this before). Everything clean and tidy. Redwood City downtown is in walking distance. The pool is nicely arranged in a courtyard.

My shower was missing a shower curtain, used the phone in the room to call the front desk to let them know and the phone was super dirty with makeup. The pool was full of leaves and looked very dirty. Makes me wonder what else was overlooked. When the staff was told about these things, an Indian woman who did... More

The motel was a litlle disappointing because it is supposed to be better than the average BW. The room was almost crowded for 3 people. It was clean and we had everything we needed. It was quiet. The price was high for the quality but everything may be like that in the area.

The hotel was great, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The pricing was reasonable for the area. The hotel is near San Carlos so it was great for me meet up with friend. I highly recommending checking out Stack's restaurant next door.

Not all stays are in beautiful places. Sometimes you just need a clean, comfortable room that doesn't blow out the budget. This place is nondescript, but there is a nice pool. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast (I know they say on the web it is continental, but here they also serve what looks like Smart & Final... More

When we arrived there was no one at the desk, there was a piece of paper that said "Back in 5". Room was clean. Pillows were small and too mushy. There were two light bulbs burned out. There was no guest binder in room to detail when continental breakfast was served, area attractions, etc.
