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.

After a long day at a soccer tournament all my family and I wanted to do was warm up and rest. We were so pleased with our short route to our hotel.

My wife and I, stayed at Los Prados in San Mateo, CA on 1-18-15. Clean lobby and rooms, but the air conditioner/heaters were loud. It really took away from being given a four rating. After turning off my very-old wall unit, the next room's wall unit clicked on and off all night long. The price for this place was reasonable,... More

Our family had a wonderful stay. This hotel is close to the airport. Although they said Continental breakfast, they had waffles, eggs, and sausages also. Since breakfast closes at 9am, I think you need to go earlier to get the good stuff. Need to check out the Japanese restaurant around the corner too. The rooms were clean and spotless. Staff...

The stay at this hotel started out ok until we found out that they are no longer associated with Best Western. When I made reservations, I was told that due to the special weekly rate that the reservation could not be cancelled. Arriving at the hotel the disaster started with being put into a room that reaked of cigarette smoke.... More
