“Hilto Garden Inns are always a safe bet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at a Garden Inn in St Louis a couple of years ago so I was looking forward to my stay in San Mateo. This hotel met all expectations--incredibly clean, friendly and helpful staff, great location close to many eating places. Highly recommend. Stayed for 3 nights.

Hilton Garden Inns (HGI), wherever I've stayed in Canada or the U.S., always seem to get it right. Room and bed choices, value, amenities and service have been consistently good. The San Mateo HGI may even come out slightly ahead just because of the cheerfulness of its staff during my recent stay.

I know there are worse "value" hotels (because I've stayed in them), but I may never find better because I'll book an HGI if it's available.

The Hilton Garden Inn in Costa Mesa/Foster City is the perfect place to stay if this is the area you are searching for. Plenty of shopping and restaurants within walking or short driving distance. Great service. Spotless. Friendly staff, easy parking, loved the breakfast. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. And only 10 minutes from SFO and 30 from San Jose Airport.

If your traveling with your family on a budget, this place is a good selection. This place is Comfortable and very affordable stay, Noise level is not bad despite it is close to SFO airport (10 min). Rooms are somewhat outdated. There is a shopping center near by and several restaurants as well. Room was clean.
Downtown San Francisco is about 20 min. So if you want to save on lodging, this is the place.

It is a nice, decent hotel, very clean, many amenities. Maybe I was expecting a lot more from a Hilton, but it was a very decent stay for half price special rate. The breakfast is not included, it is $14.95 per person. The average price for this hotel it seems to be around $200 which I would say is quite overpriced, the walls are paper thin, you can hear everything from next door neighbors.

Room Tip: Definitely top floor!

Comfortable stay. Somewhat outdated room, but the service was good, the amenities were above par, and the room was clean. I would definitely stay there again. Also, it is in a very convenient location.

Just a wonderful visit. Every member of the staff I interacted with was professional, pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast was outstanding and the cook was excellent (definitely above par here for an HGI). I even stayed in for dinner one night and it was really good.

Great location in a corporate/suburban area with sidewalks, trees, apartments – good place to walk. Lots of shopping and restaurants close by. 10 minutes to SFO.

And the Room Attendant folded up my towels into little animals! How cool is that?

Great stay and will definitely stay there again.
