If you are planning to visit San Francisco but love a cool place to stay the Extended Stay America, San Mateo is the best place to stay.

Rooms were nice and cosy, Bathrooms clean and Coffee in the mornings were great. This place is near all the offices in San Mateo so for it is great for people like me who travelled for business. There is also a big mall with decent number of shops just across the bridge. Overall nice experience.

Excellent place to stay with a very friendly and attentive staff. Has an open courtyard in the center which I find to be better than the dull closed corridors in most hotels. Parking is never an issue here with lots of space available. Rooms are neat and clean. It is a short drive from many stores like Costco, Target, Safeway,... More

This ESA property has a great location, central to many corporate office locations, shopping, downtown San Mateo and the surrounding area as well as various restaurant and transportation options. The location is quiet, well-kept and I've found it to be a welcome option to the high-priced chains in the Bay area for all of my business travel. I have never... More

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.
