“Modern inn for the budget-minded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2010

Looked like a typical motel when you pull up but the rooms have a modern feel, looks like everything was renovated recently. Everything is very clean and price is very reasonable for this area. Very close to SFO airport. Free breakfast of cereal, bagels, juice, and muffins. We were on first floor and could hear footsteps creaking all night so moved to the second floor the next day and was nice and quiet.

Me and my husband stayed at Stone Villa Inn in San Mateo for four days, and we loved the location of it - very close to the fast train going to SF, off of the highway that takes you to SF in 20-25 min but still very quiet neighborhood. The room was spotless, very clean and all the furniture looked very new. The only negative about the inn was the breakfast, no variey at all - just a cereal, milk and bagels and very bad coffee. Fortunately there is a Starbucks right around the corner.

Very clean, updated room. Big plus: Large separate storage room with door is part of room. We came with motorcycles and had lots of space to store side cases, gear, helmets etc. Bathrooms nice. Fridge and microwave a big plus. Safeway about a 20 min walk away.

I stayed at this place back in June and didn't think a moment to reserve it again this trip..
Both rooms i stayed at are very luxurious, clean and comfortable..i booked it for a week and extended it for another one. Manager has been very friendly and helpful. This time i am staying with my mom so we are two female and didn't feel insecure for a moment. It is walking distance to shopping mall and public transportation. Wouldnt ask for anything more on our stay. If i come back to the area i would stay here again with no hesitation..Definetely recommend..

This place is wonderful! I never like staying at any inns but this one is an exception. I fell inlove with my room---so cozy and very clean! i love the bathroom too!!! Staff (owners) are soooo nice and accommodating. Also, this place is close to shopping centers, good restaurants, etc. I highly recommend this place because i've been here and i give them my thumbs up!

Nothing provided to set your luggage on- no place to hand towels or clothes in bathroom- no counter top in bathroom to set your items. biggest complaint- electrical outlet wouldn't work in the bathroom- manager came down- couldn't fix it - gave us an extention cord to run from bathroom to outlet in other room- asked for a different room and he said no- he didn't have it- but at that point- the parking lot was very very empty- Didn't feel like the manager was very helpful- breakfast not very good.

We had planned on a 6 night stay, but checked out after 2 (and would have checked out just after arrival but couldn't). The area is undesireable and we worried about our car getting broken into. Rooms are nicely decorated, but the sheets don't fit the bed and the bed frame is larger than the mattress so we kept banging our shins when walking around. No telephone numbers on the telephone, no directory, no information in the room at all. Had trouble turning on the shower and then couldn't get it to turn off. It nearly burned me with scalding water and I couldn't get anyone to answer at the front desk for 20-30 min. The clerk told me no one could fix it but finally came to the room herself with a wrench. After another 20-30 min, the shower was off and we had to move to another, smaller room very late at night. They would not accept my cancellation of the remainder of our stay and kept telling us to call a non-toll free number, which we did. The manager gave us a hard time when we did check-out, so we will NEVER recommend this hotel. We moved to the Crowne Plaza for only $8 more a night!
