          It was very loud, dirty, smelly...there has to be a better option around. I certainly wouldn't go back thereif I was offered a free week. I didn't have terribly high expectation, but it was pretty bad.

          We stay at this hotel every time we have to visit the Moffett Cancer Center. Our visit is always stressful but everything at this hotel helps us relax. The staff is very friendly and efficient and the hotel is conveniently located near the hospital.
