We spent four nights here in a nicely renovated, spacious room. Had to move furniture around a bit to get access to outlets. Internet was slower than at home, but we are spoiled by a lightning fast system so it's not fair to whine. Bed was new and therefore very comfortable. Freeway close without the noise. We thought the wall-mounted... More

I have to admit, I haven't stayed at many hotels in the San Francisco area and I do realize that prices here are higher than many other cities. But I was not impressed with this place. I'll start with the positives. The guy behind the counter was very friendly. The rooms seem to have had some renovations done and were... More

We found this hotel on the internet, and we really didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised! The rooms are newly renovated, nice big tv, and good WiFi! Not a really big room, but very clean! The sink however was really small, and they seem to have a budget policy on towels; we had to get extra!... More

Rooms renovated and spotless. Some minor glitches....room phone didn't work, towels a bit small, but you can ask for extras. Located adjacent to a freeway interchange, but plantation shutters and the hum of the AC drowned out most of the street noise. Ninety-two bucks, including taxes and fees, for a room with two double beds....much cheaper than SF. I should... More

I stayed here for a month while relocating for work. While initially I was worried I would hate this place it's very livable. My room looked and smelled clean. There is someone in the office 24/7 and lots of security cameras which made me feel safe. The cleaning staff does a good job of keeping the property nice. They have... More

I have stayed here in the past due to availability...it has never disappointed and seems to have gotten a little better over the last 2-3 years, so I figured I would take the time and do them a solid. The first thing I noticed was that the rooms that I normally stay in were remodeled/upgraded...so, now, the non smoking rooms... More

(TripAdvisor doesn't allow amending of posted reviews, so I deleted the original one so I could write this update, at their suggestion.) About a month ago, I posted a lengthy negative review, detailing how my stay at this hotel was sub-standard in many ways. Horrible bed; missing lamps; upstairs bathroom leaking down into mine; etc. I ended my review by... More

I have stayed with this hotel several times in the past few years. The hotel has upgraded their services by many-fold without hiking up their rates. I travel to San Francisco for business but stay in Richmond because of the great prices this hotel offers. Moreover, the hotel is just 20 mins drive from the city. In my most recent... More

Hi Mike, Thanks for taking time out to write a review and also mentioning the upgrades. While we don't have the space for a breakfast room, we have made every effort to provide a 'break fast on the go.' We listened to our guests. One of the major complaints was about the coffee served for breakfast. After trying different brands,... More

When I arrived I was a bit worried due to the area and the external of the hotel, but all was fine, the room was clean bed comfy and had hair dryer fridge and microwave, the only downside was that Breakfast wasn't put out until 9 am.
