To the Hotel Manager. I write to thank you and, if I may, through you, to thank all the staff and personnel at the Stone Villa Inn for your superb hospitality and service during my stay in San Mateo last week. Everyone at the Stone Villa Inn really was outstandingly helpful and I can't praise everyone enough. My stay was...

There is an expression "you can't polish a turd" but these folks are trying to. Give them credit for that they are to make it better, but it's really just a Motel 6 with a little lipstick. The staff were very friendly and they try hard I will give them credit for that. The remodel is coming along slowly in...

Nicely renovated. Comfortable bed and pillows. Good AC unit with a fan-only option which I don't normally see. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Only complaint is the Eco-friendly packing for body wash and shampoo is hard to open without scissors, nail clippers, etc.

Location is great close to sfo airport, for the price it was good. Old but they tried to modernize it. Great great Value for your dollar. Bed was a little hard and had to call front desk for hair dryer.

I have stayed here a lot this year for work, the remodel is coming along nice, the service is pleasant, and the rooms are clean. There are several places within walking distance to grab some food. The only negative is they don't have breakfast or coffee yet due to the remodel.

Very clean, good location and very polite service. We stayed for one night only in between our San Francisco travels catching up with friends in the local area. This is a good hotel to see Belmont, San Mateo, Foster City. Would be good to stop off if heading to San Francisco.

It's a good thing they are staring renovation soon because things are literally falling apart....But that happens with time and thankfully they explained that to me. Unfortunatally my room didn't have basic things like a phone, alarm clock, and even a lamp. I was very patient with them but I think not having a phone is a safety concern. Given...

I stayed here last night. I have written reviews for this motel in the past. Somethings have improved, but not by much. I never have used the breakfast room, but my spouse does and was greatly disappointed. I think management could add hangers in the room, we had 2. There is not enough lighting in the room. Only one table...

We stayed here recently after staying in Marin County for 2 weeks and we needed a hotel close to the airport for an early morning flight. We were a little surprised at the prices for "average" hotel rooms in this area and decided to try the Stone Villa Inn as the price was in the $200 range per night. To...

We ended up here by mistake as some local friend of my friend organized a San Francisco getaway so, he booked the room for us. I didn't know we were very far from San Francisco, about 30 min. Drive. When we arrived, the beds were extremely wrinkled and seemed like a kid made it, no consistency, and barely tucked on...
