I traveled to San Bruno/San Francisco on business and this hotel seemed like the best choice price wise as well as location. I didn't expect too much with it being an independent hotel but to my surprise this hotel was more than what I expected. The front desk staff was quick to

Disclaimer Notice : I admit my homework preparation for this property was NOT as good as it should have been. That being said it was not totally awful but not good either. So buckle up, and I will tell you my tale. First the shuttle runs every hour at 10 minutes past the hour.

Airport shuttle is timely, location is a bit of a walk to Tanoforan shops (aka a shopping mall), Bart Station and a few restaurants. Hotel is a solid 2-star. Clean, tidy and meets the needs. Friendly staff. We would stay here again.

I needed a hotel to stay overnight on the airport. Rooms were hard to come by. This place had space for which I paid about $325. The place is OK, but not at this price. So a low rating is payback. At $150-$200, it would be just fine. Close to airport, but on a questionable

Dear Guest, It is very unfortunate for us to hear that your review is simply based around 'payback' for the rate you paid. Our rates are highly comparable and highly competitive in the San Francisco area and we are still one of the lowest priced hotels in the area even at our busiest times of the year. We offer an airport shuttle that our front desk staff is always happy to assist with at anytime as well as a shuttle schedule posted at the front desk for all guests to see. We strive to make every guests stay an exceptional one and are disappointed that we couldn't do the same for you.

Always have loved the location. Downtown San Bruno two blocks down which has a variety of restaurants, a laundry mat that was 5 minuet walk, and a convenience story. The building is well maintained, loved the soft plush blankets and the cute red classic alarm clocks!
