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

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

Cute place, nice studio rooms with nice full kitchens and large bathrooms. Comfortable, but short bed. Sofa bed for the kids. Very Quiet, but still fun for the kids. They have a small pool that is a good temp, but no hot tub. Great free breakfast. Great location for travel to San Francisco and Half Moon Bay! We would definitely... More

Just returned from a weeklong stay here with a school group of 20 students. It was an excellent choice. Each group of students had their own suite and each chaperone had their own studio. Students loved having their own kitchens and spaces to relax. Rooms were very quiet. Hotel is conveniently located to Bridgepointe Plaza, where there is a Target... More

Great hotel. Stayed here for five months in 2014. Had an excellent experience. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is great. The breakfast and the dinners had limited choice but they were excellent in terms of quality. The hotel has a small swimming pool, basketball/tennis/badminton/volleyball court along with a gym. The added benefit was the multiple barbecue areas... More

I stayed there for 30 days, relocating to SF bay area with my wife. We had nothing more than our suitcases with us, but the Residence Inn provides everything you need. The rooms are fully equipped, including the kitchen (I was cooking every night and had everything I needed). There are plenty of storage areas. The room and all hotel... More

It reminded me of the apartment I lived in when I was in college. The apartment and the Residence Inn are very functional. Everything was there - the bed, couch, bathroom, small kitchen. Completely livable. But not a luxury experience. The elements were a little worn, the carpet a little dingy, the exterior in need of repair, clunky upstairs neighbors.... More

I like the Marriott brand, and I like Residence Inn's for their spacious suites, full hot breakfast, social hours and fitness facilities at a typically reasonable price. As far as this Residence Inn goes, it hits all the marks and is exactly what you would expect from a Residence Inn. I had a second floor room (there are only 2... More

Thank you for the succinct and detailed - as well as overall positive review. I've read quite a few reviews as general manager for this hotel but I think if guests were considering staying at our hotel and could read one review, yours would hit the nail on the head. Certainly we have some areas of opportunity but you highlighted... More
