We stayed here after getting a great rate on Hotwire. It's regular list rate is too high for the quality, but at a discount rate it was a good value. The room was nice and had newer furnishings. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was in need of remodeling. The paint was peeling off the walls and the toilet and... More

I arrived with trepidation as there were so many bad reviews of this property. Sadly, they were right. There was some good. The room was spacious and looked clean and room service from Houlihan's was tasty (though the entree was not hot when delivered). And their General Manager, David Cotla, to whom I complained, was nice and seemed concerned. But... More

I stayed only one night at this Holiday Inn, as I was attending a conference in the convention center across the parking lot. The location is great as you can move easily back and forth from the convention center to the hotel. The hotel is really busy, which is explainable because of it's proximity to the convention center. It appeared... More

Surly manager made this visit regrettable. The hotel was physically okay except for the overcrowded "not free" parking. The guest service associate on the desk at arrival & departure was very nice and the housekeeping seemed on par with IHG standards. Trying to communicate with the Operations Manager was as bad an experience as any I have ever had. Still... More

I had an okay stay here. The staff was nice enough, and the rooms are good for a quick overnight by the airport. But I do not think it was a very good value for the money paid, and the free wi-fi was unbearably slow. It was so slow it was almost unusable. I am a business traveler, and absolutely... More

The room was itself was very clean and felt modern. I like that were was a large desk area, a place to put bags out of the way, a fridge and room to move around the room. The beds were a little soft and the pillows a smidgen lumpy, but we all had a good nights sleep. There is some... More

Arrived at 830pm. A line to check in--why the short staffing. No thank you for being a platinum elite member (a small thing that I always appreciate).

I used to live up this way and now travel for work, so have a lot of familiarity with this area. I'm conflicted on my review, because there are some very good things about the property and some not very good things, and one thing I simply could not tolerate, so I imagine it depends highly on what you (reader)...

We stayed here for one night before an early flight out of San Francisco. I wasn't sure what to expect because it received mixed reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised. First, the hotel is very easy to find off the 101 North. Second, the front desk staff was friendly and made sure to point out to me that we had... More

Because of our itinerary, we needed a hotel close enough to the city, and somewhat in between Sacramento and San Jose. This hotel and location worked out well for us. It was clean and comfortable, but nothing special. Parking was $10, so it's a little cheaper than staying at one of the hotels in the North SFO/Burlingame area. They do... More
