We would like to register our deep dissatisfaction over the mismanagement and complain about the racial discriminatory treatment being given to Asians (particularly Indian) families in the St. Francis Arms Apartment at Sunnyvale. The property manager treats us as if we are staying here at Free of Cost and talks very rudely even with our families in our absence, when... More

Very peaceful and beautiful place to stay. Manager is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious, affordable and cheap when compared to nearby other hotels. Kitchen is having dine-in place so no need to buy dining table separately. Pool is cleaned everyday.

All the amenities are there, including corkscrew. Plenty of towels and the extra pillow always comes in handy. Was able to check out late without difficulty. Conveniently located, there is a 24 hour Safeway and a couple of restaurants. The staff was friendly. Overall, very handy and a great find in the bay area.

This is not a hotel. This is an apartment complex that apparently rents out studio apartments as hotel rooms. My internet didn't work, no phone at the desk, dismal water pressure. Step up three flights of stairs to get to a long hallway...looks like a hostel. Old and musty...and so was the manager. Not very helpful. I got out as... More

Would like to find more of these types of accomodations. Apart. was hard to find initially with directions from front desk but it was a great stay. I would recommend... More

Lost a necklace during my trip and when I called to follow-up to see if maidservice had found it no one got back to me. When I called for the second time front desk person was rude and defensive.

The room was hot and smelled of mold or mildew when we arrived. It looked like a studio apartment from the 70's that has never been updated with popcorn ceilings and low sinks in the bathroom and dirty white walls. The carpet looked dirty as did the blinds, walls, etc. The a/c unit was so outdated - it took hours... More
