Overall it wasn't a good experience. The bedspread was dirty-large food stain or something(?) on the inside of it. I was going to report it,but we just took it off and put it in the corner. Kitchen had dead ants stuck to the counter and wan't clean. Floor in kitchen/bathroom was sticky/dirty so much that when you walked on it... More

I stayed at this hotel from June 1st- July 5th 2014 with my dog. This hotel is in a great location. It is very close to Target, Safeway, CVS, the 101, and downtown San Mateo. I felt safe and comfortable during my entire stay. The staff were always very friendly and helpful. The room had been newly renovated. There was... More

I stayed here for 12 weeks, April-June 2013, The title says it all, they give you exactly what they advertise and what you pay for. The one area they did good in for me was the customer service. Very nice group, always a smile and always greeted me with respect and called me by my sir name. No ones fault... More

We stayed at this hotel from Feb. 18-April 3,2014. My husband was having radiation treatments at UCSF. Staff became friends during our stay. Very nice accommodations. Everyone bent over backwards to make sure all guests felt welcome. Nice kitchen area so we were able to cook a wide variety of meals.

My review is based on the 2+ week stay and I hope this review will help others to make the right decision when choosing the hotels.

I booked here for 2 weeks and I will put in my 2 weeks then go someplace else that is worthy of more than 1 star, which this place barely deserves. I wonder how many yard sales they needed to visit to collect the pots, pans, dishes, and utensils in this place. These places largely attract spouses who have separated... More

Since other people will comment on the other hotel features, as usual I'm going to comment on the IT aspects of the hotel. And the news is not good. Let me list my complaints - I reserved through the chain's web site. At NO point in the process was I told what the tax burden would be, only the usual... More
