Adequately located. 15 minutes from the airport with multiple restuarants and stores within 10 minutes of walking distance. The complimentary breakfast is nice with a variety of options. There are evening snacks as well in the evenings from Mon to Wed. Overall a nice place to... More

We felt right at home in this all suite property. Room was nice and clean. Staff super friendly and efficient. Yummy breakfast, tons of food and convenient times. It was so quiet at night, we slept soundly (and late!).

Pros: Clean, large rooms, lots of amenities (including a happy hour?), blackout curtains Cons: Noisy from thin walls and lots of children who stay here, cheap bedding, isolated location It is a decent motel, but unfortunately, we got stuck underneath a family of giants who apparently liked to run marathons all day. Not good for sleeping or working. The staff... More

If you like a quite place with home feeling in a good location, this is a great choice. The room is spacious, the staff was nice and the breakfast has decent choices. I suggest the hotel consider Foli app and remove the newspaper which nobody reads. I used Foli app at another nearby hotel and I can read digital magazines... More

Thank you very much for the nice review and for the suggestion to use the Foli app. I completely understand what you are saying, though we do still have good demand for actual newspapers, looking at becoming more green is always a viable option. We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks again for the compliments! More

The Residence Inn in San Mateo/Foster City is the old style Residence Inn's where the rooms are like little apartments. Personally, I like these as they offer a little more privacy as opposed to the new ones that Marriott is currently building. The staff was helpful as we had a large group. We had rooms all relatively close making it... More
