It was with trepidation that I booked two rooms at this hotel. When I looked at the online map, in one direction it faces the water--aah, lovely. In the other, Interstate 880--oops. But, seeing how I needed rooms with two beds and where dogs were allowed, I booked it. But I assumed it was going to be a rough night's sleep from the blare of traffic so close by.
I was wrong.
I don't know how they do it, but even though our room faced the freeway side of the building, we didn't hear a thing. In fact, we both had one of the deepest sleeps ever.
The grounds facing the water are gorgeous. There are picnic tables where you can sit and eat their plentiful free breakfast and gaze at boats. The staff is fun and extremely helpful. There is a Starbucks just next door.
A final advantage...it took but 10 seconds to get back on the freeway when we departed.
