“Convenient location, spacious rooms!”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

We visited SF for 3 days and decided to rent a car, stay in San Mateo and drive to the city. The hotel was conveniently located, just off the major highways. Our room was very spacious and comfortable for a short stay. The refrigerator didn't work but not a big deal as we didn't use it. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast could have been better, but for what you pay and considering the location, it is decent. There is not much to do in San Mateo, but if you plan to drive around, this shouldn't bother you.

Great place to stay near the airport. We flew in early morning. Staff was very nice and helpful. My mother liked the fact they had glass cups and glasses. Room was comfortable and very clean. I would stay here again to be near airport.

Booked this hotel for a business trip because the price was right and the location was okay. Hallway smelt funny, room was okay. Window was tough to open, microwave was at least 30 years old, loud fan in bathroom, motion sensor lights in bathroom so whenever you walked by the lights and the fan came on, got annoying. Asian strip-mall next door, but no restaurants open past 7:30. Hotel breakfast wasn't good, only other place for breakfast close by was Denny's.

Minimal hotel. Nice staff, OK breakfast, small and dingy room. Lobby smelled old, room smelled OK.

Had made a reservation via the 800 Best Western. When I got to a Best Western which was reserved they had no park and fly. However, I was sent to this hotel and paying the same price.
Staff were very helpful. Clean room. Left for airport before breakfast was served. Hotel provided a taxi to the airport because I left before the hotel shuttle began service.
Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the main floor.

This is a low-end motorlodge located behind an unattractive strip mall. The freeway noise is very audible in the rooms facing the road. Smelly hallways lead to small rooms (with their own funky smells). Buyer beware when purchasing through Hotwire; they list this property as a 3-star hotel... when the Best Western's OWN website ranks this property as 2-star. Even after calling Hotwire to discuss the misrepresentation of this property, they refused to allow me to cancel my reservation. This is the second time I have been screwed by Hotwire. I won't be using Hotwire again!

Room Tip: Request a room facing away from freeway on top floor

I stayed at this hotel for few days for my business trip. The staff members that I encountered were very friendly. Rooms and facility are excellent to what I paid for. Will want to be back for sure..........
