I found this hotel while driving and checking tripadvisor on my mobile. I was in a hurry to find anything that's decent. Little did I know that I will find the best hotel around SFO.
This hotel is so underrated, even with an average 4/5 review rating. I called in and was greeted by this super friendly guy named Taylor. He gave me a special rate since I was checking in late and planning to leave early next morning. I still expected the hotel to be so so judging by my experience with "boutique" hotels in the Bay area.
In short, the hotel was super clean. New. Big elevator (although it was only a 3 story building). Underground parking (Free). Finishing was very high quality. Carpets were like new. Baths were clean and spacious. Bath and body works were quite comparable to 4-5 star big brand hotels. Beds were very very comfortable and clean. You could tell they were new. The hotel in general was very quiet even though it was almost fully booked. They had chocolate chip cookies every evening at the reception desk. They were so good I used to walk down just to have some.
Intending to only stay a night, I ended up extending for a total of 7 nights because it was so nice, clean, friendly, great price and location. I stayed in 3 types of rooms because it as a last minute booking and I extended twice, so they didn't have the same room type during my entire stay. I stayed in the single room, the twin room, and the premium suite. They all had the same standards of quality.
The only negative was the not so sound proof door between one of my rooms and the adjacent room. It got really annoying when some guests checked in but the noise didnt last more than 30 mins.
I will definitely stay here again in the future whenever I need to book near the airport.
