Hotel was easy to find, free covered parking, free breakfast with good choices for this type of hotel. I had a king suite room which is larger then a standard room and bathroom-shower were good. Room was clean except for under the bed which had coffee cups and spoons under it. Had a microwave, icebox, and coffeemaker. Sound proofing not... More

This is not a bad hotel. Overall we were happy with our stay here. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is free parking under the hotel (a little tight). Couple things to be aware of regarding the hotel: The walls and ceilings of the rooms are not very well sound proofed. You can hear footsteps above you and... More

Clean and very close to the SF International airport. Very friendly staff. Comfortable bed and very clean room. Close to downtown and shopping centres.

Stayed here 1 night between arrival in SF from UK & travelling further into California. Very clean & room in good order. Lovely beds & pillows. Lady on reception OK but not very smiley & welcoming. Generous all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast.

Nicer and newer than the other in the area. My only complaint is that you hear a lot of mechanical noise, more so if the room next or above you is using the bathroom, loud gushing water. You can also hear the footsteps of the people above your room. A bit more sound insulation would have made it perfect.

Very helpful staff. Within 15 minutes of SFO and shuttle every few minutes. Hotel was full but did not hear other guests. Breakfast needs a protein source like eggs to go with the waffles. On El Camino which runs parallel to the 101 and goes to shopping and services in cities south like Palo Alto. Will stay here again.

Great staff, comfortable room, convenient to airport. Very poor choices in walkable dining and entertainment, but fine if you have a car or just crashing before/after your flight.
