I've stayed here a few times and my last stay was the best. I upgraded to a bay view room and it was well worth the minimal charge. My own balcony facing the bay with a great view. The bed and linens were great too, not to mention having a keurig, free bottled water, microwave and a fridge. Great simple... More

Phenomenal spot. Great staff. The hotel is 30 years old and was totally redecorated 10 years ago...yet I would have thought 2-3 years ago. We checked in at 10 p.m. yet were treated as if we had checked in at 10 a.m. The night crew was fantastic and funny. The room was beautifully decorated and equipped with a microwave and... More

Wonderful stay here for a half marathon run on Valentines Day. The hotel was tastefully decorated for Valentines Day. There was a small lounging area with comfy chairs and a fireplace adjacent to the reception desk. Reception desk had red apples and warm cookies and milk when we arrived, AND very nice and professional staff. Our room was extremely clean.... More

Beautiful spot. Friendly staff. Lovely breakfast. There was a misunderstanding and it was handled with absolute diplomacy, no fuss whatsoever. A beautiful nature walk and park next to Hotel. Horatio's restaurant a little expensive......but worth a visit. One of the best places we stayed in our 5 weeks in the USA. Wished we had more time there. Could have an... More

While San Leandro is not a usual destination location, this hotel has much to offer. There are two excellent restaurants close by, free transportation to Bart, free breakfast, free wifi and easy Bay Area access. There is also a golf course across the street with great driving range.

Friendly and fast check-in. Clean and comfy rooms. Bathroom nice with a huge shower. Easy access car park. Everything you want for a quick stop motel / hotel. Reception staff were also very helpful with advice on getting to places. Free cookies and milk a nice little perk. Their in-room service is provided by a restaurant next door, which is... More

It’s not a fancy hotel but it’s always clean, comfortable with great customer service. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast has a large assortment of items. It’s on the bay and next to a park and restaurants. Just a short walk down the street is a walking path that I always feel safe while walking in... More

Tucked away in the marina/harbor area is this little gem of an inn. With a great restaurant next door and a beautiful view of the bay I was more than satisfied with my stay here. Make sure you count for a little congestion on the main arteries getting in and out of Bay Area.

We were welcomed warmly and even shortly after noon our room with balcony and view on the marina was prepared. Enjoyed a ride on their bikes on all the trails and the Spa and pool which were outside and heated. Great breakfast with waffles, fruits and eggs. Thanks for the late checkout!

The rooms are your average hotel room. Very small bathrooms that have been updated and good water pressure. The staff were some of the nicest I met while in San Fran. They went the extra mile in directions, taxi companies and saving me my favorite cookie. They had a great -free- hot breakfast with Belgium waffles, eggs , bagels, patisseries... More
