And they come in and go through your things. We would not recommend this place especially if you are traveling with your family. I thought prostitute hotels were illegal? They should at least let you know before you book. There are many other hotels in the area. Check Yelp as well. Terrible experience.

I stayed at the Highlander for a night and I really liked my room, apparently they rooms there are new. When I got there I was really regretting booking a place there but as soon as I got inside the room I calmed down. The staff was very helpful too.

Wifi didn't work. Had all basic amenities though and for what u pay it really isn't so bad. The family running the joint are really sympathetic and always willing to hear u out. Location is ok also. It's about a 30/45 minute drive to central SF including traffic.

To check in, you had to have yourself buzzed in by a not so friendly desk clerk. The room was clean but very shabby. The bed was as hard as a rock, but the TV worked well. The neighborhood was pretty rough, so we left nothing in our room while we went to our event. I would not recommend this... More

I've spent two nights in this motel. Very good price for what you get. Also, the staff was very helpful, the owner drove us with his own car to the train station, when we went to visit San Francisco;)
