I was surprised how nice this place turned out. We had a room facing the back which is residential area with SFO in the distance. SFO changes it's flight path so yes at times you will hear the planes, but an hour later - nothing. If you walk approximately 5 blocks to the rear of the hotel, you are in historic San Bruno - plenty of places to eat. Beds and pillows were so comfortable, provided a good night's rest. Free WiFi was fast, the provided computers in the hallways were dated, but useable. The staff were all very friendly and tried to do everything to make our stay the best. One evening the hot water was lacking, it took one phone call and the staff was on it. The maintenance guy at this place is outstanding, he is working in the kitchen in the morning, doing laundry during the day, and getting the hot water fixed in the evening. The continental breakfast is limited if you are there for a few days so we opted to rotate eating out - Jack's is a good option. Free parking was a big plus too. Good value.
