I stayed here three nights, ostensibly for a conference but involving some business travel as well -- and so used it as a base. From that perspective, it's OK as the location is quite good (close to airport -- as one might expect -- and also quite well placed in terms of the California central valley).
As other reviewers have pointed out, the Piccadilly Inn Airport does need some major overhauling/refurbishment. The interior is just looking tired. Still, there are some nice touches. The fresh flowers in the foyer were appreciated, as was the action of housecleaning staff turning on welcoming lights for me on my return from a long day. Front desk staff were accommodating, helpful and friendly. It was a nice ambience, and that can be hard to achieve, especially when I have encountered my fair share of sullen, bored and indifferent desk clerks.
The restaurant is quite good -- especially the friendliness of the service, but you may want to avoid the pasta dishes, which are not particularly tasty and, on four occasions (two from my own experience, two noted from my conference colleagues) the pasta was dry and unappetizing.
I did have a rather unfortunate experience at the hotel: on one of the evenings when dining in the hotel I found that I was the only person in the restaurant (including, it seems, the waiting staff). A random homeless person wandered in to the restaurant and approached my table. I was so surprised that I just looked at him, speechless. "You don't speak English, do you?" he mumbled, before coming closer to the table. At that point, one of the waiters (finally) appeared and assisted the homeless person to the restaurant (and hotel) exit. Although the waitstaff apologized profusely, it was an unsettling experience that should not have happened.
The room itself, as indicated above, was dated but comfortable and clean enough. There was a fridge, but no microwave. On asking the front desk, I was informed that one has to request in advance a "room with a microwave" -- so they do exist, one just has to ask for it at the time of booking.
Ask for a room with a microwave.
