Upon checking into my hotel room, there was an odor which was unacceptable for me. After notifying hotel staff, I was moved to another room. The quality of the room was okay but far smaller than I was expecting for an extended stay. The hotel is essentially a remodled "motel" type hotel, farely dark and only one window in the... More

In case of a late arrival, make sure to have a cell phone that will work for a local call (especially international travelers). They post a sign with a phone number on the door to call someone working in laundry. If you are unable to make the phone call, you will be standing outside for a long time. We had... More

I've stayed in this hotel for a night while on a business trip. It was a motel like joint. The rooms were clean. And the kitchenette was ok. The air conditioning was very loud though. But once I've turned it off I was able to get a good night's sleep. There was plenty of parking space included in the price.... More

Simple and good - No bells and whistles. Front desk staff were most helpful. Very clearly told what I would get and got what was told. Close to Foster City offices of Visa, Oracle and IBM - ideal for those on business at these establishments. Calm - tucked just at the right distance from the hush and buzz of vehicular... More

Stayed for 1 night, and couldn't have ha a better experience. Night check in for extremely helpful and pleasant. For the price, a surprisingly nice little breakfast area. Clean, quiet location. Comfy beds and pillows. Nice, clean bathrooms. For the price, couldn't ask for more.

I have been staying in the hotel for more than 6 months. I would rate this is one of the best hotels in its category. Front desk crew is very helpful and courteous.

I have been working closely with this hotel for the 5+ years I have been with my company and I have nothing but excellent reviews about them. Our company utilizes their business for our project employees that we house here from India. The hotel provides extreme excellence in service, treating our employees more as family then guests.

Come on, no turndown service? I get it that you have to get extra linen, shampoos and soaps at the front desk, but four nights with no turndown service? I can take my business elsewhere. The kitchenette is pretty much ok, the a/c is ok, the staff is nice.

Good place for a longish stay if you have your own car, or your place of work is walking distance. For me it was the latter. Not many restaurants nearby, so if you can cook your own food, you'd be much better off. There is a grocery about 5-10 minute walk away. Ok if you're not buying too much stuff... More
