A relatively small hotel located right on El Camino Real in the heart of Belmont. The room we had was small (to say the least) but perfect for our needs. The property is recently renovated and the rooms (at least the one we had) was very clean and up to date. Nothing fancy but an excellent value. We would definitely... More

This is an older motel that was recently renovated with a nice modern/beach feel to it. The room I had was great for one as the rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. 4 pillows on the bed, refrigerator, microwave and writing desk. The bathroom had been remodeled with a modern sink and barn door type door. Nothing fancy, but... More

The room was clean and modern, bed was fairly comfortable, but the wifi was unusable. There seemed to be only a couple other rooms occupied while I was there so oversaturation was not the issue. It was just really really slow to the point of being unusable. Which is kind of hilarious considering that the hotel just changed its name... More

I recently stayed here for almost two weeks on business. I am in the area once a year, and the hotel is not selected by me. First, I agree with the reviews that the remodeled rooms are very nice. While I was there, the exterior was repainted. If you are staying more than a few nights, opt for the larger... More

Dear guest- Thank you for your insightful comments. We are pleased you enjoyed our recently renovated rooms and hope you enjoy our exterior enhancements in the future. It is true that the train station across the street offers direct access to San Francisco and San Jose just steps away. We will work on your suggestions to improve family friendly amenities... More

My rating of "terrible" is not because the motel was terrible. I never made it to the motel. I received a call from the manager around noon on the day I was supposed to check in. I had booked through Expedia and the manager said that the motel was fully booked but Expedia would help me find another room. To... More

Had a great 4 night stay. Reasonable rates very close to the Caltrain, only an hr ride into the city. Close to a little shopping plaza. Rooms recently renovated and they are currently working on the outside. It is not that loud. Only noise is the train

I stayed here based on my fellow reviewer's ratings. Rates are very reasonable for this area, rooms are very comfortable and seem to be newly remodeled, wi-fi is free as is parking. Noise is another matter due to busy El Camino Real road next to the motel. The sound of cars, trucks and buses lessens somewhat between 10 p.m. and... More

Stayed here for a night in early November after reading great reviews online. Reviews were 100% accurate as place is extremely well kept, rooms have wonderfully new, crisp white linens + big flatscreen TV + wonderful high pressure showers. Location is terrific. And family running the place is super nice. Strongly recommend staying here!

This motel fit the bill when I flew in after dark, convenient to the highway and just far enough from the airport to be reasonably priced. The room was small but fine for one person, and I appreciated how nicely appointed it was after an obvious rehab (including quality bathroom fixtures). An easy walk to McDonalds for breakfast, so I... More
