Staying in San Francisco is very expensive so we opted to stay outside the city and commute in for our sightseeing since we had a car. Overall our stay was fine since we were using it as a base and not hanging around. The rooms seem to occupy a series of well worn buildings scattered around the property which can... More

This motel was perfect for our requirements, although there was a 15 minute walk down to the seashore (this suited us but may be too far for some people). It was easy to find, just a few yards off Highway 1 and therefore easy to access other places along this interesting route (Point Lobos, Big Sur, etc. In particular, the... More

I was one of the artists showing at the Foster City Art & Wine Festival and located the San Mateo Inn while there setting up my display. I was not aware it was nearby and made a last minute reservation. It was conveniently located, quiet and provided me everything I needed at a VERY reasonable rate, I highly recommend it... More

As I said before, everything was good. I don't know what more I can add to this question, but everything at the Hotel and staff was very good. Also the location. So glad to see a Denny's close by. The directions given to us to find the Hotel were perfect for us.

There are plenty of restaurants nearby to offer variety of food to enjoy. So so room area and the breakfast items and layout. The fitness area is not accessible unless you request for it so a separate card can be issued for access.

This is a great hotel south of SFO at a fair price and short drive to airport on Route 101 direct. Breakfast was very good. Bed was excellent. Enough room in the room. Bathroom was clean and nice. Staff was very good. AC control is on the wall and not on the wall unit and we missed seeing that -... More

Very helpful and efficient staff. We are a special needs family that travels to the bay area a lot, so finding a comfortable hotel that suits all of our needs is really important to us. Thanks to all, and we will see you again soon.

Great place. I would recommend this hotel and the surrounding area is nice as well whether on a business trip or on a trip for leisure and kicking around. Staff was nice and went of their way to please the guests.

Centrally located in the SF Bay Area and priced reasonably. Very convenient to everyplace we needed to be ranging from San Jose area to the East Bay. The breakfast offerings were more than adequate. Located next to a Denny's and a Shell Gas Station. Right off Highway 101. Convenient to San Francisco International Airport.
