“If you clean your car on a regular basis you'd probably be better off sleeping in it.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012 via mobile

This is one of the filthiest Choice Hotels I've stayed in, and I stay in this chain 5-10 days a month across the US. OK, there were no bed bugs, I always check. The bed was made although I'm not sure the sheets had been washed. They were old. The floor had not been vacuumed and you could see pieces of someone else's history stuck everywhere on the carpet. The table/workspace had not been wiped clean. The dishes had a greasy residue... etc. You get the picture. Worst of all, when I tried to wash a cup there were human hairs stuck in the dishcloth and drying towel. Holy $#@%! Stay away from this one. I wouldn't stay here again if they payed me their going rate. When I checked out early and told the front desk person why I was leaving sooner than planned (her hotel was a rat hole) she asked me if I wanted another room. Really?

Not clean at all. Grossed me out. I feel very dirty being in the room. I wish I would have brought cleaning supplies with me.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

I travel to the Bay Area a lot for work and was looking for a place I liked and would like to return to when I am in the area. The photos of this hotel looked nice. In reality it was among the filthiest hotel I have stayed in 15 years. And I have stayed in a lot of hotels. I was booked for 3 nights this trip. I stayed only one night and if it hadn't been such a long day I wouldn't have stayed at all. It is awful.

Room Tip: My tip: Don't stay here/ You will regret it. Filth abounds.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2010

This is a hotel for people on a budget. It is designed for extended stay. With that in mind it is a secure budget hotel, with a staff that tries to make your stay pleasant. The rooms are small but you have a stove, mico, refrig, work desk chairs, lounge chair and bed on in a small room. My room was clean and comfortable. When on a budget I would not hesitate to stay here

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2009

I stayed here in Sept. '09 with a girlfriend on a leisure trip. Then it was just okay, but we were told renovations were underway. So when hubby and I planned a trip to visit family in Dec. we chose this since it was convenient and had the mini kitchens. We stayed 5 nights. The place is STILL undergoing reno, hardly any rooms were filled, and the one we had was way below average. The room above us had people in it for the last two nights of our stay and the noise was TERRIBLE!! The floors in our unit (#108) were filthy. The carpets made my feet/socks BLACK and there was visible dirt in the corners of the kitchen and bathroom floors. The wallpaper was torn and dirty, light switches were grubby and dirty, and the loveseat/sofa was dirty, tacky and full of stains. I re-washed all the dishes before we used them as I found the flatware sticky and greasy upon arrival. We had to call the manager to help get the closet door open. The bed was placed right up against the closet wall and the only way we could get the door open was to put the bed at an angle to barely open the door. This was POOR planning! The manager who was on duty when we checked in was excellent. He was helpful and friendly and was the only redeeming factor in our trip. We will not stay here again, even if reno is done.

I enjoyed my four day stay here. It had a more personal feel to it , not overly large like some. The suite had and unexpected bonus for me.. A fridge , microwave, stove w/ kitchen ware and dishwasher what more can you ask for !.
I will be back !
