Absolutely terrible customer service!! Rude staff- blatantly ignoring my request for a room that was available as I was standing right in front of him- answered a phone call and gave the room to someone on the phone. When I confronted the desk concierge regarding the situation, he ignored me and "shooed" me away with his hand. Unbelievable disrespect. DO... More

Visited Stone Villa Inn last year. Location is very good. Caltrain station and Hillsdale shopping center are located not far from the hotel. I was there without a car so it wasn't very convinient to go there, the only way - by bus. Rooms are big, everything is clean, bathroom is clean. Bead is very comfortable. Light breakfast is served... More

I had to give one star in order to write this review, but please let it be known this hotel deserves no stars. I checked in, went to my room, and checked right back out. For some reason San Francisco and SFO hotels are out of control this week, however I would rather spend $200 at The best western than... More

After reading all of the reviews from 2009 about how great this hotel was we decided to book here. First of all the hotel tried to double charge us for the reservation which was prepaid. The room was stinky like cheap air freshener. The hotel was noisy from the trains and the rooms were very outdated with the absolute minimum... More

After reading the reviews, I was skeptical, but the exterior, the reception and the room was quite nice. There were a few issues: the lock didn't work well, the sink had a slow drain and a few cosmetic issues. Great for one night.

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
