“San Fran on a budget”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2009

Stayed at this hotel for three nights in order to save some cash while visiting San Francisco (got a great deal at Expedia). Nothing special about this place, except that it is very close to the city (about a 15 minute drive into downtown), and that it has free parking (God knows you can spend a bundle on that alone while visiting SF). It does have a business center but the internet is super slow.

This hotel located near sfo is a good option for those who wish for an affordable location near San francisco. Rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms. The hot breakfast buffet is somewhat ok but not everyday. Staff is good to down right dumb (depending on the day on shift). If your going to a 49ner game book a bus ride on friday before the game (ask at the desk). When going to Sanfrancisco go burno parking lot
BART system and take the train to the Powell station. From there it is very easy to catch the cable cars to fishermans wharf. Its a lot easier than driving down there and having to find a parking spot.

We stayed here for 2 days and 2 nights this September and overall had a very plesant stay. The breakfast was good (not on par with Embassy Suites) but it was still a good hot breakfast so I can't complain. The rooms were comfortable with all the usual ammenities of a Best Western except there was no mini-fridge which was sort of dissapointing. The only other complaint that we had was the smell of smoke in the bathroom everytime someone above us in a smoking room lit up. We were told by the manager however, that come November the hotel was being converted into a 100% smoke free building. There is easy transportation to downtown SF from the San Bruno Bart station which is only about 2 miles from the hotel. This is how we commuted into the city everyday. Also, we did not have a problem with aircraft noise and we were located on the 8th floor.

This place was great, was everything and more that we were looking for. Hot breakfast everymorning, coffee in rooms, large rooms, very clean, restruant on site, fitness area, heated pool, close to running trails, and close to airport, which by the way did'nt not effect us in any way.. never heard any of the airport noise.. Only about 20 -30 minutues from San Franscico and about an hour away from Santa Cruz.. Easy access to the major freeway 101..

Parking was plentiful, staff was very helpful, have a happy hour in the sports bar with specials every night. Resturants within walking distance, IHOP and Mc D's..

It was everything we needed, and wanted our stay could not have been better and I would defianitatly stay there again in the future..

Good location for the airport and the City. Swimming pool is a puddle between two motorways. ....its a bit windy too but doubt anyone will ever bother you or steal your deck chair. Seriously though the hotel was fine clean and comfortable. Not bad value for money restaurant is expensive breakfast is fine and quite vaired

I asked to switch rooms, because we were initially facing the freeway, and could hear it very clearly. We got a room on the same floor, facing the bay, which was a nicer view. But there was still plenty of noise -- everything from auto traffic, airplanes, to interior hotel noise of doors slamming, people yelling in the halls, could even hear the dinging of the elevator from our bed.
