We had a cancelled flight and decided to stay for a night. Hotel was clean and free breakfast. The hotel even had a shuttle that took us to the airport for free. Very satisfied with the staff, will stay again.

Everything neat and clean. The room was comfortable and the mattresses were just right. Staff was very friendly. It only took 15 min to drive to SFO. There are plenty of restaurants in every price range close by.

Super location, great under hotel parking, a hotel where pictures don't lie. Rooms comfortable and modern. Easy access to the city, airport and southbay. Used hotel as a base while driving up and down for meetings. Small size of property actually nice vs. mega hotel/huge hallways. To go food options or delivery in room avail. Owner on site.
