You will hate this place if you don't like beds that feel like you're sleeping on soft, fluffy clouds. When I plopped down onto the bed, I kind of expected the typical "meh" kind of motel bed where it's just barely comfortable, and on the firm side. Instead, I sunk down onto the kind of bed that makes you want to go to sleep even if you are wide awake. Huge points for that because I'm pretty sure the majority of guests staying here are doing so before or after flights and need a good night's rest.
Also, a big plus for sleeping: the room gets nice and dark. Good curtains, and decent sound proofing. I never heard our neighbors, not even a toilet flush. Our room was right in front of the paved ramp, so aside from a few roller suitcases going by, that wasn't an issue.
You can tell the place has been around awhile, but it is kept up very well. The bathroom was nice and even the toiletries were decent. I liked having the mini fridge and microwave. They both came in handy when we stored our lunch leftovers to have after a late night return from a concert in Oakland.
The staff at the desk were great and very helpful with directions.
We did not get to have the complimentary breakfast though. It is served from 6:30-9:30am, but we slept in after being out late and had to pack up for our noon flight. Had the breakfast been served a bit later (10:30-11am) we would've been able to take part. I guess that's my only "complaint."
If we ever need to stay near the SFO airport, this will for sure be our first choice of hotels.
Lunch tip: The Sandwich Spot is very good. It's right off El Camino Real on Park Place.
