Nicely located and quiet, this is a friendly inn and after getting free upgrade to room 312, I'm pleased at the room- the chairs, lounge area with microwave, fridge, great bathroom and a very soft comfy bed. Free breakfast from 7:30- 9:30 amwith free parking, it is a nice place to stay for 4 nights. Do add in slippers and... More

as ordinary goes. Clean to a fault. The chairs in the rooms may not have been designed for sitting, but the internet was quick. Motion sensitive lights. You must add a star if you like seaweed, kim chi and spam, because there was no skimping there in the ample free breakfast. The staff were kind but not so strong on... More

The location is very convenience for me to travel to my office. The room is nice and the price is little bit expensive. I spent 4 night and had good sleep until the lats day, the people on third floor direct from me make a lot of noise. Other than that everything is OK.

Room was huge and nicely furnished. TV reception was variable, some channels were unwatchable including the 3 HBO channels that are supposedly included. I was here on a day with record breaking heat and it took several hours for the air conditioning to make things comfortable, but it got there. Everything very clean. Bathtub was older and had chips in... More

This is the cleanest hotel I think I have ever stayed in, with nice decor and furnishings. I disagree with some of the comments about noise. Even though it is located right on the busy El Camino Real and our room overlooked a muffler shop, I didn't hear a thing all night. The breakfast offers made to order eggs along... More

First, the hallways smell, the beds are not particularly comfortable, the air conditioning only works intermittently, and the walls are paper thin. My bigger problem was that they didn’t honor my Orbitz reservation claiming “They turned the Internet off, but Orbitz made the reservation anyway.” Huh?? The young woman at the counter, Lisa, said they only had one room left... More

the room was clean, and they offered custom-cooked eggs at breakfast, plus cereals and Asian breakfast items. However, the acoustics were poor (especially the water pounding into the tub upstairs or next door at 2:30 AM prior to someone's shower), the sheets were too small for the beds and came undone during the night, making a lumpy sleeping surface, and...

Friendship Inn has the some of the cleanest rooms & the nicest staff of any hotel that I have ever stayed in. (I am pretty sure that they clean the rooms with a toothbrush). The staff was beyond wonderful.....they could not have been more friendly and helpful! I will definitely stay here again!

I tried this out and thought it was fine, given the location. Best part was free access to a health club down the street. Excellent breakfast for Asian travellers, the manager was very nice. Perfectly fine for business travel, especially those from Asia.
