Stay overnight at this hotel because it is located near SFO airport and they provide free 'sharing' shuttle bus. We arrive in SFO around 9pm and call their shuttle for pickup, waiting around 15 minutes. Hotel is not too bad, but it is no cheap $150 for 2 star hotel. But, note that all hotels around SFO is not cheap, so this hotel consider pretty ok. And they also provide simple breakfast for free.

Friendly reception and for problems or questions was soon a satisfactory solution. Also during rest of stay super service. Rooms are neat and still look fairly new. Spacious bathroom, good beds and tv Breakfast is truly in american (bagels, bread for toast, butter, jam, sour cream, cereal, 2 kinds of fruit and coffee, tea, milk and juice) but it is fresh, there is sufficient and after by a friendly lady always refilled. It is located about 25 minutes drive from fishermans warf.

Nice hotel, near everything we needed. Stayed with our three kids and everything was great! very clean, confy and very nice service. Breakfast was good and complete. The cafeteria is a little small and very in front of a couple of rooms in the 2nd floor, so be aware when reserving to ask this. If you get to have breakfast before 8am is ok. Travelled July 2011

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that are not in front of the cafeteria, as when you open your door to go out, you...
