Hotel was nice, clean, staff nice, breakfast weak, but parking poor. Had to park off site on street one night. Parking lot is miniscule above ground and had underground parking which is a nightmare if one doesn't have a sub-compact car. Freeway noice irritating in rooms. Trucks shake room occassionally disturbing rest.

Wouldn't stay here again. The hotel does not have an airport shuttle so you must take a $20 taxi ride each way. The savings on the room price are completely wiped out by the expensive transportation to and from the airport. There are many more choices in hotels with similar rates that provide airport transportation. Also the rooms face the freeway and do not have insulated windows so you get freeway noise all night even with the windows closed. We stayed here after an exhausting 14 hour plane ride back from Europe and did not spend a very restful evening due to the noise.

Ditto to what everyone else said regarding this hotel. Great value, especially if you wish to stay and leave your car when you fly out of SFO. Why park at the airport when you can stay at a nice hotel? The hotel also will comp your taxi ride using one of their partners to and from the airport. NO waiting for those crowded shuttle buses that make frequent stops.

Stayed 2 nights for some family events in the area and were very happy! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Rooms have everything needed - fridge, microwave, hairdryer, iron and board - and we needed them all. Appreciated the sofa and coffee table in the room. The only problems: The bedding had some holes, it was hard to control the room temp and the TV reception was poor (although we were offered a different room for that). Waffles at breakfast were excellent (but maybe my husband was just good at making them!) Some rooms overlook part of a golf course, but the hotel is RIGHT on 101 (major highway). It was a little tricky to get back on the highway but staff gave good directions. You have to drive to get to anything, as it is located in a sort of residential/commercial area.

You can get excellent deals online and we had an even better corporate rate. Can't beat it!

we have been here in jan. 2004, after having read the reviews here and as we got a good rate. the wingate inn had been our first stay directly after arriving at SFO from a long and rather stressful flight (from germany).

it was relatively easy to find and not far to drive from the airport.
first plus was the free parking (although relatively crowded as we were arriving late - but in case: underground parking lot and possibilities in the neighbourhood).

check-in was friendly and fast.
the long corridors and the elevator areas looked ok, but when we opened the door to our room we were amazed. hughe.
very comfortable, very clean. nice bathroom, good beds.
perfect to recover from the long flight.
the free internet was another plus, as we had our laptop with us and we needed to check emails and arrange things.

the included breakfast was ok too.

on our way back we booked the same hotel again for the last days before departing. great! we will come back in a few weeks.
the only "disadvantage" might be that it's a bit off SF, in case you want to visit downtown.

The hotel lived up to the reviews. My room was good sized and well decorated. The room had a coffee maker, microwave, and mini fridge. The staff was responsive. It is well located although it is a little tricky to get to going southbound on 101. The hotel is close to 101 so I recommend getting a room near the back of the hotel. The rooms on the north side of the hotel face the San Mateo golf course. There is not much going on in the immediate vicinity but it is close to San Fran and Redwood City. Can't beat free internet access and you can print to a common printer. The TV channel selection was a little limited with more options via pay per view. The hotel has a sauna and a small exercise room. The continental breakfast includes do it yourself Belgium waffles.

Stayed here for one night in August. Was amazed at how clean and nice it was for the price. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel. The bed was wonderful, there was a fridge, microwave, and hairdryer. The room was spacious and immaculate. The TV was huge, the room was quiet, and the breakfast was nice too. It was worth the little bit of extra driving, rather than staying right in San Fran. Word of advise, it is worth the extra money to park in San Francisco than taking public transport. We almost missed out tour of alcatraz, because it took forever to get into town and the cost was $20.00, 10 each way for two people. We could have driven and parked in SF for $30 or less. Great hotel though. You will not be disappointed!
