Breakfast was always good, and having the cookies out for the afternoon was a nice treat for the kids. The halls of the hotel have a lot of strange turns, I never got fully oriented to the layout of the 3 days we were there, not that it's that big of a deal.

Tienie, We are glad to hear you enjoyed taking BART into San Francisco. Isn't that better than wasting time driving in an area you are unfamiliar with. Next time you visit us you will have to unwind by going for a nice bike ride around the marina. Thank you for sharing your stay with others. Kind regards, Janise More

This is a wonderful place to stay when visiting San Francisco. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Shuttle service available to BART station. Breakfast limited choice but fresh! boiled eggs and fresh fruit (so not sweetened!). LOVE THE FRESHLY BAKED COOKIES. With a family of 4 we would certainly visit this hotel again.

We were visiting San Francisco, but didn't want to stay in San Francisco. This is a great hotel! Very nice! Our room was huge and very comfortable. The shower had glass doors instead of a curtain...which was a BIG plus with me. Our room had a balcony overlooking the bay. We would drive to the Bart and ride into San... More

Dena, We are happy to hear you enjoyed staying on the other side of the Bay while visiting San Francisco. We try to explain to guests' that we are on the quiet side of the Bay with easy access into the city. Thank you for illustrating that fact so succinctly. We eagerly await your return. Kind regards, Janise More

We stayed one night before our flight to Maui and used their park & fly service. Our flight left at 7:30am so we took the 6am free hotel shuttle to OAK and got there in plenty of time. Unfortunately, the shuttle doesn't run late so we had to take a taxi on the way back (about $20--pick up a hotel... More

We had a lovely balcony overlooking the marina and the room was huge and really comfortable. The staff were super friendly for our whole stay and, on... More

Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and good breakfast. This hotel us also very close to the harbor and a trail nearby where you can see the bay and airport. They have a nice little workout room and outdoor jacuzzi and pool. I highly recommend it!
