Reviewed April 23, 2012

We had to check into this hotel around 1 am, and had to make the online reservation (using points from Choice Hotels) at the last minute, and this hotel was wonderful! Small lobby with locked door where you check in that late at night, but the manager was johnny on the spot, right there to open the door and check us in immediately after we arrived. I didn't even have to ring the bell to notify them I was there! Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The beds were soft and luxurious! All in all, we had a wonderful experience here and would definitely stay at this hotel when on business in the area again!

Room Tip: No tips to add - we stayed on third floor - it was quiet and more than adequate!

Heater in room did not work and it took over an hour to take care of. It went out a second time and never got fixed. We also left our camera, by accident, in the room. We called later to be told that it was turned in and in the office. When we went to pick it up they couldn't find it. They promised to get to the bottom of it, but 6 weeks later after a promise to reimburse us and not returning phone calls we have given up on a good-faith solution.

Not a horrible place to stay if one has business down on the peninsula and doesn't feel like driving back into The City. Positive item is that it's in a great location there on El Camino. Another plus is that the staff are helpful, especially Rema.

As for the facility, it's pretty worn and on the rough side. Not dirty really... just old. Rooms are of a good size and the linens and towels are decent in shape and quality. What this property requires is a complete renovation to bring it into the 21st century.

At the end of the day though it's perfectly fine for a limited time and they will toss you a decent rate.

Room Tip: Either side of the hotel seems to have the same noise level.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn in Redwood City for a one night stay last week and it's adequate for what you pay for.
Check in was good, but computer troubles seemed to befuddle the clerk, the beds were comfortable and it seemed quiet enough except for music blaring from somewhere in or perhaps near the hotel.
The pool is located near the back of the parking lot and wasn't all that inviting frankly, but there was a sauna which was nice and the Wi-Fi strength was good.
The breakfast room is located beside the main lobby and was spartan but good, hash brown patties, eggs, yogurt, toast etc, no complaints there.
However the hotel is in the middle of a renovation and I was dismayed at the amount of debris in the stairways, hallways and in the parking lot. If I had known about the extent of the renos and the construction noise early the next morning, along with the loud yet kinda catchy Mexican pop tunes, I would have demanded a better rate.
Truth is the renos are needed as the hallways are horribly dated.
Overall a tentative thumbs up.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms facing the parking lot

overall this probably used to be a decent place to stay for business; there appeared to be an effort to upgrade the room I was assigned, but overall, the hotel in rundown and needs a refresh.
Hallway carpets were worn, walls need paint, rooms are very dated. everything in here looks to not have been updated since the day it was installed.
Thankfully, no bedbugs.

Room was very nice, clean and fresh with fridge, microwave and TV. Comfy beds! The pool area was nice as it was fenced off from the carpark with plants and shrubs around. Dry Sauna was also nice. Continental breakfast served, waffles, bread, pastries, cereal, juice and coffee.
Free WiFi.
Our flight home was 6.30pm so the night before we asked if we could have a late checkout. We had to pay $20 due the time that we wanted to stay until, but it was worth it.
Hotel is situated well, 10 miles ish from Half moon bay, 15 miles from SFO and it only took us about 30 mins to Downtown San Francisco. Also nice restaurants & shops within walking distance. All round good place to stay - even the 13 year old liked it!
