“The Price Was Definitely Worth It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This hotel was very clean, beds were comfortable and we didn't hear any noise beyond our room which was a very pleasant surprise. We were so tired when we arrived, we decided to just eat dinner in their dining area. Our meal was good and we felt the price we paid was fair for what we got. Do agree that their bar is quite limited in alcoholic drink offerings. But we were able to get something that was OK.

All of the staff was friendly and quite helpful. We would definitely stay at this location again.

Great place, great amenities, would have used more of the facility if I was not so tired from working and running from the Travel Lodge at 1707 Market , in San Fran. They had wino's, pimps and oriental massage all within eye shot of their place. If it were not for the Bed Bugs, oddly damp sheets, needle disposal containers in the room, unlock-able windows, and hoodlums hanging in the stoop waiting for you to leave your car - it would have been ok. The Hilton GARDEN INN was literally paradise after that little experience. It is only 20 min south of the city and was a great value considering the prices around San Fran.

Attended a family function in San Mateo and booked at this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews. It lived up to all the five-star ratings - clean, lovely staff, good breakfast, well situated. I would stay here again if commuting to/from San Francisco or visiting the area.

I really like it here. It has superb customer service, and it's in an ideal spot, straight shot to SFO and just a hop away from the East Bay. The food was great, and the whole air of friendliness of the staff was invariable. It was a great experience staying in this hotel. We also had my daughter's graduation in one of the rooms, had the food catered by the hotel, and even decorated by their staff. We were very impressed. Thanks to Maribel and her staff.

We come here for a yearly event and have been very pleased with all the staff here - everyone has been friendly and helpful and the property has a relaxed feel - but maintains very professional service. I totally messed up our reservation and the guy on the phone was very understanding. BED COMFORT WAS HORRIBLE because of the *@#! new Hilton beds - supposed to be adjustable but are total crap - but that's not the staff fault - but really - I hate these new beds - and I stay at Hilton a lot. Anyway, everything else was great and ample free parking is a BIG plus. Location is very close to many restaurants and necessity shopping, area is pretty quiet, too. MY APOLOGIES for forgetting to tip housekeeping when we left - they do a great job, and I don't want them to think we weren't happy with the rooms' condition! (night of 5/18/13 second floor) THANKS!!

Stayed here for the Maker Faire 2013 and had a great experience. The restaurant had a great full breakfast with cooked to order eggs and waffles and the hotel is in a safe, clean area within walking distance to several places to have lunch and dinner.
