“Really Not That Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

$279/night for this place? Seriously? Rooms are small and old. Bathroom sink was rusty. Train went by and shook my room. And not a great location either.

I don't plan to stay here ever again. The front desk staff was nice...that's about the only good thing I can say about this property.

Free airport shuttle. Big room (#320) for 2 (2 queen beds, a separate living room with own TV, desk). Slept very well on the bed, 4 pillows each bed. Wifi is fast. Free breakfast is sufficient. The hotel is a bit old but everything works and does not appear worn down. Shower water pressure is comparably low.

Room Tip: Room 320 has 2 queen beds and a separate living room. Comfortably fits 4 adults. There is a good Ca...

Just stayed at this hotel overnight for an early morning connection at SFO. The hotel is relatively new and is very clean. It is a great alternative to the much higher priced large hotels such as the Marriott or Hyatt. Only issue I had was the shuttle ride from the airport. It runs every 30-35 minutes so if you miss it you will sit for a while. There are 2 groceries stores within walking distance and 2 chain pharmacies (Walgreens and CVS) as well. Most of the immediate restaurants are Asian and a Pizza Hut/Taco Bell right next door. The small hotel exercise room has 3 treadmills, all new Lifefitness models, along with a small assortment of dumbbells.

Stayed here for work for two nights. One elevator was out of order. The person at the front desk was friendly, but it did have to wait a while every time I went there. I was concerned about security since you could go up to the hotel floors from the parking lot. And the train noise was really loud. All that for $227 a night. I will not be returning.

Got this place Via priceline for 95$+tax, and then I have read the reviews....

So - the staff are friendly and helpful (even after midnight).
Room was just great (402). obviously it can be updated - but all was just perfect to me.

2 minor cons - 1. parking is 10$ a day.
2. water in the shower could run better.

But it is just a great place to land - after or before a flight.

Room Tip: 402 was good

I found that this hotel is very close to the airport and I had a room that meant I heard the aircraft taking off from late at night to first thing in the morning. I'm a reasonably light sleeper so it wasn't the best choice.

The staff were friendly and the room was good. The breakfast was free and v similar to the likes of the Holiday Inn Express. The location was okay and I could get a real coffee from Peets Coffee a couple of blocks away.

It was quite expensive considering the noise from the airport so I wouldn't stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that minimises the noise from the airport

We chose this hotel from the reviews & was very satisfied upon arrival. The hotel was very clean & updated. The continental breakfast was very good. We had a side view that showed construction but it was very quiet. The staff was helpful as well. Yes, we would stay here again
