This is a clean hotel with friendly staff located not too far from San Francisco across the bridge to Oakland. We chose to stay here while visiting San Francisco. The toll to SF is $4. Parking each day in SF ran about $15-25 for the day. The breakfast included eggs, bread items, fruit, cereal, yogurt, juice and coffee. During the week, they offer a light snack such a taquitos and then beer and wine. This hotel is pretty isolated with no restaurants close-by. The waterfront side of the hotel is very pretty, but the other side is a noisy highway.
When we made the reservation, we called the hotel to specifically ask if the outdoor pool was currently open and heated. They were purposely deceptive and said the pool was heated and useable. What they purposely left out was that it did not open until May. After we checked in, we inquired why the pool was locked. The front desk lady laughingly repeated the deceptive answer we were given and said it is useable, but not until May. By the way, it is a small pool.
The only other problem we encountered was the noise from above. The person above us did not appear to sleep and we heard them moving around all night. So, make sure you request and verify an upper floor room by the water to enjoy this hotel.
