My wife and I enjoyed the stay. The property was easy to find and located close to the family members we were visiting. We found the breakfast quite adequate and the area clean.

I stayed here for the SE exam at the San Mateo Event Center. The room was newly painted and pretty clean. And the breakfast in the morning consisted of cereal, bagels, Svenhard pastries, coffee,and oj. The only complaint i have was the car alarm that kept going off up until 1am, which was bad if you had to take a test at 7am the next day. And the other complaint is that the room needed more power outlets next to the bed. There was only one, which was taken up by the lamp and an alarm clock.
