The Villa Montes Hotel was a good mid point for us between Yosemite and Big Sur, so we stayed for one night. The decor is beautifully appointed, the beds are comfortable and the staff at the front desk is extra friendly and customer oriented. It is probably the best property in San Bruno. There is really nothing around, although we... More

We chose this hotel because it had good reviews, and was an affordable option to spend a few days in the San Francisco area. Our drive into the city, or the Fisherman's Wharf area was only about 20 minutes, and we actually loved staying outside of the city. The hotel offers free underground parking, which is rare in this area.... More

Spent 5 nights at the Villa Montes Hotel on a family vacation in late June, 2016. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the room was spacious and comfortable, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the daily breakfast had a great variety for all in the family. Would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the San Francisco area.

On a recent return visit to the Bay Area, my wife and I decided to locate lodging in and around the San Bruno / South San Francisco area. We had previously stayed in Pacifica and really enjoyed the area however this trip was unfortunately not for pleasure. In any event the location was convenient to Interstate 380 (Quentin L Koop...

I was expecting good things from reading Tripadvisor - sadly this was not my experience. This hotel is has a known problem with it's aircon system. After some time, the fan creates a low level thrum that is a bit like having a bass-bin in your room. Our first room, 303 was so bad, even the guy at the front... More

granite floors, stone column portico, French/Portugese vocal music playing in the background, this hotel is reminescent of an European (in my imagination, Italy) small hotel. room (off of the portico) was smallish but the stonework in the bathroom gave the room and elegant touch. A/C did not work well but tolerable. we had a room facing the main street (and... More

We were so pleasantly surprised with this boutique hotel on El Camino Real !! Their attention to detail was appreciated , clean, comfortable, & friendly staff. Do not let the price make you question. They are less expensive than most chains, and 10 times nicer. I would stay there again over any chain hotel in the area !!

We were wary at check-in, given the cost savings over other hotels in the area. But had decided to gamble because it was so close to the Golden Gate National Cemetery (the reason for our visit) - we won the jackpot with this gamble!! Villa Monte's is amazing; beautifully decorated; clean; quiet; wonderful staff; very nice continental breakfast - can't... More

We were departing from SFO early the next morning and booked this hotel based on comparison with other properties close to the airport. Hands down, it's the best I've yet to find. Friendly staff, quiet and spacious room, and close to dining. I couldn't ask for more.

I stayed here as I was looking for a reasonably-priced stay near SFO, and was generally quite pleased with my stay. The Hotel is an older building which has been extensively renovated to the point of being like a new hotel. The location is excellent, as it is very close to the airport, yet is very quiet. Some other hotels... More
