Overall the hotel is nice, safe and a good location. It's nothing special, like a nice Holiday Inn. It's a bit old and out dated and the rooms smell like old cigerette smoke a bit. But overall clean and nice

This is a great hotel, clean, very nice & modern with a really cool water feature in the dinning room, all of the staff were friendly & caring - however they do not except gift cards unless your name is printed on it ( what kind of policy is this ? ) they would not even run the card to... More

This hotel is beautiful. Very nicely decorated with the standard CI&S amenities, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, plugs everywhere for our electronics. We were even upgraded to a whirlpool room. The rooms all circle a beatiful atrium that serves as the breakfast buffet and lounge. The only complaint I have is the noise. The atrium echoes with children playing and people... More

The staff was very accommodating. The room was very spacious. The breakfast went over and above what we were expecting. A must stay. We were expecting it to be noisy but never heard a sound. We would definitely come here again. It is centrally located by most fast food places too

This is an ok chain Hotel like you get it everywhere and basically from all the Major chains. maintenance Status and General Quality is good, but not excellent. Rooms are quite up to date. beds are perfect. Breakfast typical, niot fancy, does the Job. Hotel is rather expensive ... probably due to Sillicon Valley/San Francisco area pricing.

Hotel has recently been remodeled- room decor, common areas, downstairs lobby, etc. very nicely done Free parking, free internet, free breakfast. Some road noise on that side- I tend to turn the fan on the thermostat to "Fan On" so the fan drones out noises...at any hotel I go to. (A pet peeve is hotels that have occupancy sensors that...

Good for one night of sleep thats it. Ample parking space and its right across to a Mcdonalds if you are hungry. And a gas station near it too. Breakfast was nothing too special. Its about 25-30 away from San Francisco and 10-15minute away from the airport.

The hotel is clean and quite. Our room w/2 beds was just right (plenty of space) and the beds were comfortable. I booked my reservation via hotel.com so I've got 20% discount. Great place to stay. BTW - the cookies at the front desk was served fresh and continental breakfast was good too.

Stayed here for a business trip. Price was lower than usual because of the pre-Thanksgiving lull, so I decided to try them out. I can see why they command a price premium - it is definitely a nicer property than most of the other properties in the area.

The room, business center and attentive staff made this an outstanding wedding anniversary weekend adventure. San Francisco dining and dancing venues were just thirty minutes away. And, couldn't help but visit "Max's" in Burlingame for lunch! And, breakfast was thrown in, too ... A real breakfast, not just a croissant & coffee!
