Great place to rest and call home base if you are visiting on a budget. Only 20-30min drive to San Francisco and sightseeing. Breakfast is a nice touch & staff is helpfull and nice. Mattresses are pretty old but will do, rooms are quiet large size and have mini fridge in them.

We stayed there for one night on our way to take our plane at the San Francisco airport ! The hotel is located very close to the highway and is right beside a Chinese shopping center (Liquor Store available) and a Denny's restaurant . Our room was surprisingly big with a lot of storage space , TV and WIFI had... More

booked this place online, based on provided feedback. It was definitely better than sleeping outside. That said, it's in an ideal location, if you want to go to the mall, or hit the freeway. This place was sandwiched between the two. No less than three garbage trucks showed up through the night, and there was a nice abandoned Delivery truck... More

We stayed here for 5 nights to attend a family reunion. The rooms were spacious and clean. People were friendly and kind. Breakfast was good and quick. Location was close to all the major highways. Convenient.

No frills, just what you need for a quick layover - in my case, a room for the night before I proceeded to Seattle. It has improved a lot since my previous stay years ago when it was still a Best Western. Room was delightfully clean and surprisingly stocked with essential toiletries. Staff was very helpful in getting me a... More

Very close to San Francisco airport and car rentals. Clean, hospitable, laid back place. Free parking and wifi. Used by Singapore Airline for staff. Check out the best Lebanese food at Touraline restaurant in San Mateo. Will charge $10 corkage fee. Food is excellent, way above average.

The hotel is what you need. Clean room, Parking, and breakfast. Staff is so nice and helpful. Erwin and Elle are so helpful. This place is such a great place as you are near everything you need to be at.

I'm use to staying at nice hotel. I am having to make several trips per month due to a sick family member and needed to find something more affordable. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable. I have a very sensitive nose and my concern about staying here was that it would smell musty or old and it didn't. I recommend... More

This is by far the worst hotel that I have ever stayed at. I paid 4 times as much as I would for a Motel 6 and a Motel 6 is much better. The room smelled the moment I walked in. The electrical plugs wouldn't hold any of cords even after spreading the prongs out. And many were loose. And... More

With an array of rooms available across the property, we're disheartened to hear that your initial placement missed the mark so significantly and that we lost the opportunity to provide the guest service that you were expecting from us. It would be a pleasure to speak with you more regarding this stay. We hope that you'll consider reaching out to... More

I arrived to that hotel after a review at Tripadvisor, and it's short distance to the family I visited at Foster city. A nice hotel, clean, fair maintenance, close to main roads. The room I got was at good shape and size but with low pressure and flow at the shower. Stuff are nice and helpful.
