This property was fairly clean and well-enough maintained. Proximity to SFO is probably the best thing the property has going for it.

We stayed here due to its location and an early morning flight out of SFO. We found the hotel clean, friendly and quiet. They offered complimentary airport transfers and breakfast but due to the time of our flight we missed breakfast.

rooms are noisy on the street side, breakfast was a joke, wireless was fine, bed was marginal. Manager wouldnt change room when complained of street noise, said would be fine after rush hour. It actually got worse. I would not stay here if I had a choice.

The room was good, clean with walk in shower. The parking was under the motel. It was located right in amongst the business and the room overlooked the street below so there was some road noise and sirens, etc. Breakfast was included and was a modest motel style. The room was good enough for our needs and was the least... More

Although the immediate area surrounding wasn't favorable for taking a walk etc, the place was clean, 15 min away from wharf, and a mile down the road from restaurants and shopping... Clean and conveniently located

Nice place for the money, very clean and very attentive staff. Very close to the airport. We needed a roll-away bed and they got it to the room 30 seconds after we got there. Underground garage and free parking and wi-fi
