Nice hotel. Great hospitality. Delicious breakfast... A little loud during the night kept waking up bc of noise levels by other guest. Beds were very comfortable and pillows were very soft .... Cozy in Al aspects. Did slip in the restroom like if I was five again. Was very slippery but they do have a unplaced mat to prevent that... More

On the good side, the motel was nicely laid out, close to a shopping mall, and convenient (by cab) to the train station. (We were on a layover between the Amtrak bus from Northern California and the train heading east in the morning.) The breakfast was good. On the down side, the smell of smoke was in all the public...

I read all of the reviews of this hotel so I was a little leery but decided to try since we were getting in relatively early (2pm). I read the reviews about the smoke smelling and dirty rooms but I found that this was really a pretty decent place to stay. Now a lot had to do with getting in... More

Actually reserved in advance, stayed a night to avoid a possible DUI---after a nearby 70th birthday party. Quiet, so slept well. Clean, and kept up. Ample parking; close to freeway, but well-sound proofed.

Staff were very helpful to assist with my handicap issues. There is a lift into the pool and a lift into the hot tub. The lobby and breakfast areas are clean and were easy to navigate with my scooter. Staff were always offering to help me get food or assist in any way they could.

Carpeting was stained in many places, ice machine was out of order as was the vending machine. There was no place close to the hotel to have dinner unless you wanted fast food, and there were no recommendations of places to eat. Paint was peeling in our "suite".

We arrived at 6pm, to check in. Our two rooms were booked by AAA for over a month. We were put on two separate floors. One was clearly a smoking floor. It was terrible. Within 30 minutes our eyes were watering and I had started coughing. When we asked for a different room, it was clear the desk staff did... More

Great hotel with very clean rooms, nice lobby, and clean pool. Continental breakfast was very satisfying. Stayed 4 nites with a 25 min drive to San Francisco. Also, BART system is available 5 min drive away, if you dont want to drive downtown SF. Shopping square across road for your goodie needs.

It's not a bad place if you are in the area. Shopping is very convenient, right across the street. The motel looks nice from the outside, a little dated on the inside. It is clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

Not very comfortable for two when the only chair in the room is straight-back with no padding. We were there three nights. I asked for an extra chair. "I don't if we have one," was the reply. I guess they didn't, since we didn't receive one. Adequate desk work area. No TV channel guide. Bed is OK. Bathroom linens are... More
