This is a typical Silicon Valley hotel - practical, functional, no frill, no personality and located in an area devoid of retail activities. There's an IHOP right next to the hotel and then some diners right across the street (Mission College St.), but not much variety and no pharmacy nearby. The hotel is perfect for business travelers looking for convenience and competitive rates. The rooms are basic, spacious and clean. Two things I didn't like were: 1) The closet space (no real closet) is in the bathroom. While the bathroom is quite big, I don't like hang my clothes in a high-humidity area. 2) The daytime staff (two women) didn't appear very professional - rather lackadaisical and more like cashiers.
