This place is located very close to SFO airport so it's a good choice for an overnight crash before an early morning flight. If you arrive early enough (before 6pm) the hotel offers free coffee, cookies and a glass of wine in the lobby every evening at 6pm. Pros: Clean room, bathroom provides good selection of amenities (shower cap, mouthwash,... More

I found this hotel because I was traveling from San Jose to San Francisco and wanted something nice but not super expensive. The Villa Montes Hotel fit the bill perfectly. We arrived at about 9 p.m. and the lady at the check in desk was very nice and the cookies were a plus. Parking was underground and free! (one of... More

Stayed here one night between flights. PROS: free taxi pick-up/drop-off at airport (although the taxi took 25 minutes to arrive after we called the hotel); had a suite which provided lots of room; robes included in room; the bed / bed linens were really nice; and the front desk person was quite friendly (although they didn't have record of us...

Oftentimes when it comes to hotel choices, particularly when traveling on a budget, one tends to choose familiar banners/chains to avoid surprises... In turn you get a room that is basic and bland, sometimes poorly cleaned and heavily worn. However, alternative choices can sometimes provide outstanding and rewarding experiences like this place does. Rooms are nice and spacious, much larger... More

I was part of a group who received a nice group discount from the hotel but I had made my reservations separately, through priceline. Because of this I had the ability to see a few rooms, other than the one I stayed in. My husband and I were in probably one of the smallest rooms they have, as there was... More

This hotel was a great value but what made it work was a staff that was friendly and helpful. Breakfast has no protein such as eggs or sausage, that was the only disappointment. However it was available until 10:30. Later than most places. Rooms were nicely appointed. Complimentary wine at night was nice.

The Villa Montes is a well priced, well appointed hotel just a short cab ride from SFO. I've stayed here about a dozen times (usually night before flying out of SFO) and it is consistently comfortable, affordable, and attractive. I feel I owe it to them to give a comprehensive review. It's quiet and beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms nicely... More

I was shocked at the prices in better hotels in San Francisco and parking was not included, so decided to look outside the city a little to save some money. The Villa Montes is about a 30 minute drive from most of the city. This was our first time staying in an Ascend Hotel. We were highly impressed by both... More

We spent 3 days in San Francisco, the hotel was nice and clean. Breakfast was complete with a variety of choices. It has a whirlpool very nice. The staff was friendly. The room was very nice decorate, but because we were at the front was noisy as well.

We spent a week at Villa Montes so that we could be close to family for Christmas and found the hotel comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and the breakfast included in the room rate was a pleasant surprise.
