Stayed here with family on a road trip from Seattle. We spent two nights. One thing I like about Residence Inn is that there is a separate bedroom and nice for a family to spread out after a long day of being together. The location is about a 10 minute walk to the BART station. BART is a 45 minute ride to San Francisco and costs $11.50 per person to the city. Also walking distance is a mall with a PF Changs and California Pizza Kitchen.
The room itself was good. It was clean, good lighting, and plenty of outlets. Free wifi and free parking. The pillows are huge and the bed was not very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was standard hotel/motel hot breakfast. That said, I would definitely stay there again and would recommend the Residence Inn as a good place to stay if in Pleasanton.
