All of these great reviews must be bots.. place looks clean from the outside but there are mice.. don't bother! filth beneath the new shine. lots of maids too- working hard. that's a plus. the rest of the staff was lackluster though. unfriendly manager, under qualified to even smile or pretend to give a crap.. such a shame- great city.

Business trip. Clean room. Quiet room. They had breakfast available with a good selection of quick options. Staff were friendly and helpful. No issues with check in process. Walking distance to a grocery store and a couple of places to eat.

We've stayed here multiple times, and always had a spacious room, comfortable beds, excellent service, and a good breakfast. It's close to CalTrain (for Giants games), and many restaurants. Close to the freeway, but quiet rooms.

Nice rooms but could use a table and chairs to make in-room dining a little more convenient. Professional, friendly staff. Wi-Fi was fast. Good breakfast served from 6 to 10. Overall, a good experience.
