We booked this hotel because we needed a stopover near the airport before continuing on our trip. Our reservation was for 3 people and we were placed in a room with only 1 bed .. allegedly because the hotel computer program doesn't display how many beds are in the room . Unbelievable that the clerk would make up this excuse instead of just saying there'd been a mistake. Our room was facing the street and it was pretty noisy; the beds were reasonably comfortable but the room itself was in need of updating, everything seemed worn and dingy. We were in the main building. We used the shuttle service to get to the BART station to go to San Francisco, the service was good and the drivers were professional and courteous. However the BART station is in a bad neighborhood and pretty scary especially late at night. There seemed to be little to no security so we were thankful the driver arrived promptly to pick us up. While this is a convenient location if you need to get to / from the airport quickly, there are probably better hotels in the same price range in the area.
