I booked a deluxe king suite and stayed at this Extended Stay hotel for 8 nights with my husband. We were hesitant and unsure of what to expect in regards to the quality, cleanliness and noise level at this property. I am happy to report that our concerns went away quickly after checking in and seeing our room. We had a corner suite on the 3rd floor with windows on the side of the hotel. Even though you could hear some road noise, when turning on the air conditioning at night, I never noticed any noise outside. Our room was surprisingly spacious with seemingly new furniture throughout. The kitchen appliances (stove & fridge) were not new but worked completely fine. The granite/solid surface countertops were a nice touch and seemed to be newly updated. The bed comfort was just okay – a little bumpy and uneven. I would recommend asking for a corner room on an upper floor as these floor plans seem to be significantly larger than the rest.
The location is great. Very quick and easy access to the highway as well as the Larkspur ferry that takes you straight to downtown San Francisco. It is also not too far away from the start of wine country. We especially enjoyed the close proximity to the bay. There is a bay trail in the back of the property (just about one or two “blocks” behind the hotel). This trail is fantastic and leads right to Target which has a full grocery section to stock up on food/wine for your room.
Finally, as for other features of this property, we did not use the indoor pool but did make use of the laundry room (remember to bring quarters) which was helpful. Also each morning a small table is set up by the front desk with a couple baskets of granola bars, muffins, and fruit so we made sure to grab something on our way out each day.
Overall this property does not offer luxury accommodations; however, if you are looking for an affordable and spacious room with a full kitchen this is a great choice.
