Checking in felt like I was interrupting the staff. I did not get the friendly welcome I received at the other 3 best westerns I stayed during our week long trip. I asked direction to the train station they listed on their site. They state it was only 1 mile away, but offered no direction how to get there. I asked a couple of time too. They told me only that it was close enough to walk to. Actually the train station is 3.3 miles away. My room was dirty with someone else's hair in my bed. There was a nasty used tissue on the side of my bed along with a dirty cup. Our toilet plugged up and instead of repairing it the staff member threw the plunger up to the step platform. My friend had to walk down the stairs to retrieve the plunger to repair the toilet herself. I went onto the balcony to witness a drug deal. There were 6 semis in the parking lot. It seemed like this hotel was more like a truck stop than a best western. I did enjoy the hot waffle maker for breakfast even though the food and eating area were very dirty. This property is behind an Asian strip mall which received deliveries very early. Between the semis, deliveries, and being located along side the freeway the noise was too much. If u are visiting San Fran as we were I recommend staying much closer. It is really far out. They say its only 15 minutes out, but actually it's an hour round trip. If u are looking to stay outside of San Fran to save money as I was try Millbrea or near the airport. The train station is very close and takes u straight into San Fran. Parking there is awful, so the train is the best way to get there.
