This is a very reasonable, functional place to stay. We use the chain on both the west and east coasts. Very comparable experiences. Breakfast is not terribly exciting, but the overall value is very good.

The staff was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Even though the hotel was completely booked we heard no noise. Room was quiet. Great selection for breakfast in the morning. Internet access in the room was easy to use and no issues with connection.

Close to great restaurants. Close to CalTrain allowing trips to SF and all of the South Bay. Parking was great. The breakfasts were more than expected and monitored by the friendly staff. I would stay again but a heated pool and a spa would be a very attractive addition.

But...the breakfast made me sick. :( Other than that, the place is really nice and the staff gave us toothbrushes and toothpaste because we forgot ours. Also, was able to make use of the business center and print documents for free. So that was nice.

Great hotel approx. 20mi outside of SF in the hip town of San Carlo, which has many great restaurants. Well furnished hotel, good sized rooms, reasonable breakfast choice. Must mention Lawrence from front of house for excellent customer service and friendly advice. Stay here if you need a good hotel outside of SF or a hotel for an early flight... More

Stayed here for two nights recently. Wasn't sure of what to expect because of some mixed reviews. I was pleasantly surprised - we really liked this property. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with tons of electrical outlets for devices. Internet was good too. The other thing we liked were the common areas. Business center for printing out boarding passes and... More
