Stinky rooms, mattresses like futons filled with cement, and a parking lot full of sketchy characters. Unless you HAVE to stay in this exact area, go a couple miles away to a better crib. NOW, if all you have to spend is $100, this might be your only choice in the area...so there's that....

The hotel is good for your last night in SF area. Close enough from SFO, you can stay there before your flight without risk of being trapped in the morning traffic. Clean rooms, quiet despite of Camino Real's proximity. The staff could be a bit more friendly.

My boyfriend and I live some distance apart so we have been meeting in the middle for months now and trying different hotels. We arrived around 9:00 so we rang the bell. We were given a room by the attendant who took quite awhile with my credit card and license. He was also quite rude. The room was just ok.... More

If you are looking for basic services: clean; towel and sheet services; breakfast room with strong coffee, juice, cereal, breads including croissants and bagels; pleasant staff; and convenient location on El Camino Real, this is the place. Guests appear to be tech guys rather than families. We had a pleasant stay.

Noisy place, sound transparency excellent !! particularly between first and second floor. Sloppy maid service - trash bin not emptied - soap not replaced - bathroom floor not cleaned. Unfriendly staff. Particular disturbing: a cockroach made its way into the tiles of the bathroom floor - I killed it and left it there for the cleaning staff. The next day... More

The people were really friendly and the room was clean. But you could hear every step the person in the room above took. You can also hear the traffic anytime a car drove by. Inexpensive and clean but not good if you actually want to sleep. My company made the reservation based on location and price.

Puter: We are extremely sorry that you had trouble sleeping due to your room being near the El Camino side of our property. We recognize there are a couple rooms that might face some traffic noise which some guests may find troubling. Please give us another chance and we'll place you towards the middle of the building where we are... More

Bathroom sink never drained. When told front desk, suggested I use plunger, never would fix it. No towels in room, couldn't understand when I went to get some. Finally got one, after many minutes of trying to get them to understand English.

Ivan: We are terribly sorry that you had a poor experience while at The Stone Villa. We are sorry that our housekeepers mistakenly forgot to leave towels behind. We do hope that you give us a second chance to make things right. Thank You, Kiran Owner More
