After a long day of travel I finally arrived at the hotel only to be told I could not checkin. I would have to wait 15 minutes until the manager returned. So I sit in my rental car waiting for the manager when to my surprise the clerk who could not check me in tells me to move my car.... More

First they were very rude checking us in. The rooms were run down. The beds are super hard like bricks. The shower only put out hot water and it wouldnt drain. I went to the office for help. They gave me a plunger. The plunger didnt work only brought up guck. I asked for another room. They were resistant to... More

It was late in the day we were simply looking for a place to rest. (A relative was at a hospital) We arrived at the hotel late but the gentleman opened the lobby to welcome us. The hotel was easy to find and had free parking. The hotel reminded us of the 50's vintage 2-story motel...but obviously renovated recently. The... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced, clean place, close to the airport for a one night stay. This place fit the bill. It's a motel, 10 minutes to airport (no airport shuttle), free parking, clean with very basic amenities provided. The stay included breakfast which we did not partake of. Helpful desk staff, helped us print out our boarding... More

We stayed at this place in June because the airline sent us there (and paid for the room) after a missed connection. We got there at 2:00am and were told checkout is at 11:00. We asked if we could check out a little later, like at noon, but they would not negotiate. The room was clean but it could definitely... More

I know that the Bay Area is expensive, and I surely wanted something basic. I got a comfortable bed, a not too noisy area, free wi-fi and proximity to freeways, stores and restaurants. On the other hand there were areas that needed some dusting, hot water that worked only if you followed the verbal instructions of the hotel owner (it... More

The hotel was clean, bed was comfortable. Breakfast was decent for being included in the price.. good location. We had 2 pillows on the bed and called to request additional. No problem if we went to get them when the front desk was open. The room wasn't spacious. Small walkway between the end of the bed and tv stand (be... More

This is a terrible place to stay. I had a horrible experience. Our room was a good size, but not so clean. No counter space in the bath room. The towels did not smell clean. The beds were rock hard. The toilet was plugged up when we arrived to the room. When I called the front desk, the manager told... More

in May 19-out May 21, 2014: This is a mostly well-redesigned and renovated 2-floor older motel. We were on the first floor and could hear every step and squeak in the room above us. The room had 2 comfortable leather chairs, still in good condition. The bed was firm and comfortable. We thought it odd that there was no top... More
