“Decent, But Not Perfect”
Reviewed August 12, 2010

I think this is a pretty typical Homewood Suites arrangement, so you get much of what you expect here. Good sized room with kitchen, microwave, refrigerator, stove-top, dishwasher, sofa, separate bedroom, and a bath/shower. The hotel also offers complimentary hot breakfast and an evening meal; I think the 'dinner' is just for weekdays. Free Wi-Fi is nice if you're toting a computing device or smartphone.

Price was about $120 per night which is not terrible for the Bay Area, and it includes shuttle service to and from SFO.

On the down side, the free breakfast is a free-for-all. Just not enough space in the dining area for the number of people in the hotel - so it's constant crush of bodies, too few seats, waits for food and drinks when they run out. The arrangement is so cramped that there is just no way to navigate this area without running into people. My guess is that they were counting on the outdoor seating, but since you're 100 yards from the Bay, it's cold and windy outside!

During our stay, one of the two elevators was inoperable - so we had long waits or took to the stairs. Only problem is that the stairs are really far from the elevator so it can involve some pretty long hikes depending on where your room is. To make matters slightly worse, the ice machine didn't work on our floor. So we had to deal with the elevator waits or hikes even more often. Just not idea - and not really up to par for a Homewood. I guess I'd say it's just "okay"; I'll probably look around a bit more before our next trip to the Bay Area.

This is a great hotel to visit with family. Clean, about 20 mins away from SF and 15 from airport. Clean, breakfast is great and good overall value.

We are a family of four, and we stayed in the 2 bedroom suite for more than a week. Our sons are 22 and 15. The suite was clean and comfortable with very comfortable beds. We took advantage of the complimentary breakfasts and also the evening meals that were available Mondays through Thursdays. The breakfasts were as advertised, if crowded (hotel was full the week we were there) and the evening meals were better than we have come to expect in such circumstances.
We found the location to be a convenient home base for our San Francisco area sightseeing, as long as you have a rental car. My only complaint was that the "high speed" internet was often very slow or not working at all.
This was a great value for the money and I highly recommend it.

We arrived late and the first thing I did was open up the pull out for my youngest son... and found at least a dozen mouse droppings on the underside of the bed, the part that you see first when you go to open it. Fortunately none actually IN the bed. We would have walked out right then, however, it was the holiday weekend and I knew we had nowhere else to go, and we only had to survive three nights. My partner found mouse feces on TOP of our bed. They were in the kitchen cupboards, on the table, the floor had not been adequately swept up and I found them in a little missed, unswept pile, as well as under the cushion of the chair in the bedroom. While the beds were comfy, the thought of critters running everywhere was not too sleep-inducing. We did not hear any, however. I have to say that the staff were actually all very friendly, and they do up a good breakfast (though, again, the mouse factor is less than appetizing). We only stayed here because the Residence Inn at Oyster Point, where we usually stay, didn't have a two-bedroom suite available, but we will NEVER stay here again. It doesn't surprise me that suites like this with kitchens do get infested from time to time, however you need to clean it up so it's not quite so obvious.

Everything is good, including the free simple dinner and beverages from Monday to Thursday. Modern furniture and well equipped kitchen. All the staff, except one reception girl, are happy for their work and eager to help you when you need.

The Homewood Suites is only about 10 minutes from the airport, and about 30 minutes from downtown. The large room was clean, comfy and quiet. The only thing that was annoying was the bathroom door opened into the sink/closet area, so we had to be very careful when coming out of the bathroom. Otherwise, a good choice for the money.

Everything about this hotel except the adjancy to the noisy freeway and railroad is perfect! The people are great, the location to the water-the city-the airport are all great. The rooms are nicely appointed. Fred, in the front of house staff is so outgoing, helpful and cordial that remembering him will be a pleasure. Only problem is the rooms on the side of the building where the trains/traffic goes by. So just ask for a room on the other side of the hall and have a great vacation or work stay!
