My husband and I recently traveled to the SF Bay Area for an emergency visit to my mother-in-law. Our 'normal' hotel accomodations were not available. We had recently come to know of the America's Best Value Inns in WA/OR/CA, had been pleased. Hence found this hotel on the border of Redwood City.
I have Nothing but praise for these accomodations: in an excellent part of town, close enough to major freeways but Not with gas fumes outside the window:) - large, clean, well-priced rooms with fridge and microwave and (glory be!) jacuzzi tubs in selected rooms!
Above all, however, the hospitality of the host, Mr. Bipin Patel, was extraordinary. He listened literally to my request for a non-smoking room for 2 seniors, one queen-sized bed. Didn't have that. We went to leave. Sat looking for other motels. He came out to our car, said, 'Would you mind a King-sized bed? I do have one - non-smoking - with jacuzzi...' --
He insisted on Showing us the room - a first for us both (no one else has Ever shown such care, diligence, attention to details and desire to meet our smallest need.) We not only took that room for the 2 nights needed, but have his card in hand: we come to the Bay area several times a year from our home in Medford, OR - will now be permanent repeaters with Mr. Patel - know the room to ask for -- could not Have a better place to relax!
Thank you so much for this opportunity to share. It's the first time I have ever filled out a form such as this. Probably the last. But Mr. Patel deserves this and more --- if possible, a raise and a Promise in triplicate for a steady job for many, many years to come...
Ask for the jacuzzi room! Great opportunity!
