Very nice motel with large enough rooms for our family and small dog. Hard to find a pet friendly location but this was perfect with a lot of walking area between buildings. Plenty of parking near units. The motel is right off Hwy 101 so good access but still a drive into the city. Pretty simple drive into downtown San... More

My husband and I are living in the Netherlands, Europe. We have been traveling a lot in the United States for more than 20 years. We have been staying in the Residence Inn San Mateo several times. It is ideal located for exploring SFO, the coast (Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Rockaway Beach), the Skyline Boulevard, Big Basin Redwoods State Park,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during a visit to my son's family. This is a very nice Residence Inn with great furnishings. We ate breakfast there on 2 mornings and they had a wide variety of choices. We used the pool one day and it was not crowded at all. I was concerned about it being on Highway 92... More

Thank you for the very nice review, Nebraska Fan! Yes, the 92 isn't very loud at all. I've worked at several other properties next to highways and this one is by far the quitest, by comparison. I'm glad you enjoyed the variety at breakfast and the pool as well. It's tough to sit in my office sometimes, looking outside at... More

(this is cut & pasted from my personal review on Expedia, so forgive me for not retyping) Booked the hotel based on previous reviews... was very satisfied with my selection.

Last year I stayed at the nearby Fairfield Inn. When booking a trip this year, I noticed the Residence was priced the same. I figured Residence is a better quality hotel so I booked it.

Thank you for taking the time to submit this review. Though "mediocre" is not our goal, it indeed serves as an area of opportunity for us. I understand the layout not being a positive in your eyes. Quite honestly, like many things, some guests like it, but some prefer interior corridors - and it's completely understandable. I'm sorry about your... More

Spent one night there. I arrived rather late from the airport and struggling with a luggage that has just lost a wheel. Obviously tired.

I was expecting the worst as the combination of close to the highway and San Francisco airport was not giving a great feeling. The hotel was booked by work so I was prepared to just grunt my teeth for 2 nights. Well I did not have to worry. The Inn is really easy to find, just off the motorway, there... More

Very friendly staff and was a great location to the bay area. I think they gave us the worst room and it was not that bad.

Great long-term stay option that I have used more than once. The in-room equipment: fridge, microwave, plates and cutlery is a life-saver. Walking distance to Safeway, centrally located and close to the freeway. Solid breakfast. Easily my favourite place to stay in the Peninsula.

How can a thinking person check in a group with a multitude of small children (six by latest count) and place them on an upper floor. Between them and the barking dog last night we were wakened at 3:30, 5:00, and 6:15 A.M. Usually we find this hotel quiet and convenient, but this trip has been singularly unpleasant. Even when...
