I checked in around 9:30 p.m and was greeted by a nice person. I had booked through Kayak, so he just needed to see my ID and credit card. I went to my room. I did notice that parking in the front of the hotel is pretty limited. The back lot parking is lonely and a little worrisome... There is... More

I stayed here because I had a workshop to attend at the Holiday Inn next door. This hotel was cheaper by about $60-$80/night. It's small, but clean. The bed was really comfy & reminded me of the beds at Hampton Inn. (White duvets, great pillows.) You can tell it's been updated with new wallpaper & furnishings. It was cute! The... More

This hotel has the best and most comfortable beds ever. We stayed here only one night on our trip around California and the next time we are in the area we plan on staying here (just because they have the most amazing beds). Overall the room was very clean and spacious.

First of all, this place is in no way a "hotel", but is a clean "old-school" type of motel (in a good way). I noticed a couple of negative reviews complaining about pricing and "safety" issues. I can guarantee you will not find a less expensive alternative in this area (at least, not one you'd want to stay in). As... More

It was a king and very comfy, we don't stay in our room much when we travel, but want a comfortable bed to sleep in after sight seeing all day,... More

My husband and I stayed at this property after attending a family event--actually between all of us at the event we had four rooms in the motel and each of us were pleased with our visit. The motel is currently in the process of being renovated and several of the rooms were closed for renovation--the workers were quiet and clean... More

Not as new as the country inn down the street, but it has updated, clean, comfortable rooms, and decent prices. As housing on the peninsula gets tougher to find, it's nice to find a reliable value priced option. The breakfast is typical motel danishes and cereal, but at an Expedia rate of $139, I didn't expect much more

We had a room here for one night in October. We found the room clean and the bed comfortable. The place feels dated, but was quite fine for our needs for a one-night stay. The continental breakfast included cereals, packaged pastries and waffles you can bake yourself, as well as fresh fruit (apples the day we were there). The coffee... More

I read some of the reviews on this “hotel” prior to booking a one night stay for a very early morning flight out of SFO and I thought to myself, it was a 2 ½ star hotel and I was being charged $140/night so it must be a decent place…I was wrong, very wrong!!! The first room given was right... More
