“Friendly, affordable hotel with only few minor problems”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2005

FIrst, the staff is WONDERFUL!!!! After we checked in and got to our room we realised right away that the a/c wasn't working. We called the front desk and she was very sweet and said it was her mistake and she gave us the wrong room. She had maintenance run us up a key to the right room immediately. Then we got into our new room and played with the wireless internet (which is free and great!) but we were on the far end of the building on the top floor so we weren't getting connected. We again called the front desk who was once again very accomdating and moved us to another room with the warning that we would be facing the train. No problem, my husband and myself don't get bothered much by noise, but internet is a MUST. We did hear the train alot on that side of the building so if your a light sleeper than you probally want to face the courtyard.

From 9-12 on 3 of the days we had some former employees with signs and megaphones picketting outside the hotel. The staff is aware and apparently has been dealing with this since April but they are court ordered that they can have their picket signs and megaphones only from 9-noon. (I guesss the city allows this). It wasn't that bad and I wouldn't let that be your decision on whether or not to stay here.

The hotel seems to be in a fine location with lots of other nice people staying here. The rooms are fairly clean - few burn marks etc. but for the price it is expected.

We love the wireless internet was free, the continental breakfast was free, the staff was great, and rooms fine. Oh, the a/c in the room we stayed in did not seem to really cool things off but we didn't complain - me and my husband were sick and it could of been our fevers. The rooms are very nice sized and there is a fridge and microwave in the rooms (super bonus).

Would we stay here again? For the price, yes. Just as long as the a/c was working a little better.

Perfect place for leisure travel.

I had to leave this hotel after 1 night..Definitely not a 3 star hotel. The room were not remodeled at all...My room smelled strongly of mildew and stains in the carpet... The outside courtyard is appealing except it has all these chairs around a small whirlpool ..seems as if this is wasted space and should be a pool there...However is very convenient to the airport and price is reasonable, but could not handle the mildew smell...
I left and went to the Best Western down the street now this is a 31/2 star hotel.....

We loved the free Wi-Fi Internet access and newly remodeled rooms. The staff did a great job showing how to get around and arranging our tours. The free breakfast was average but for the price we paid it was good. We will be back next year!

Spent a week here between 7th. and 14th. August. Despite location near to freeways which meant you had to speak up if breakfasting in the courtyard its benefits were considerable.

Free complimentary breakfast was excellent with wide variety of food fruit and drinks which could set you up for a day of sightseeing. 15 minute free access available for internet users in the lobby contrasted with places we stayed in LA and Yosemite where breakfast often cost $10 per person on site and internet access was 25cents a minute.

Staff were pleasant and courteous though agree with another reviewer that soundproofing would help between walls of the rooms. Rooms were spacious and clean. A problem we had whilst there was dismissed staff protesting outside the hotel early in the morning with megaphones.

Good location. Close to airport. They have a shuttle, but we didn't need to use it. A few reasonably priced restaurants nearby in South San Francisco. One of the larger Comfort Inn complexes we've stayed in. Our room was very quiet. Liked the layout....plenty of room for two people. Nice sized bathroom with counter space. Hair dryer, iron, microwave/fridge. Room was clean and front desk personnel were friendly. Free internet access. Had an outdoor spa which we didn't use. Queen size bed and a sleep sofa. Breakfast was very basic, but all we needed. Breakfast room wasn't very big for such a big motel. We ate early and it wasn't a problem. Used our Choice Privileges points so the room was free, but would stay here again even if we didn't have a free room. Prices were comparable with others nearby.

The hotel is pretty easy to miss from the road off the interstate, so keep your eyes peeled.
After driving by it once, we found that the front desk was friendly, the high-speed internet service easily available in the lobby (with printer) or in the rooms. They have a nice courtyard here with a very large, beautiful outdoor whirlpool. Honestly, it was picturesque. That was surprising for a hotel near the airport.
It was easy to get to fisherman's wharf, too. Maybe 15-20 minutes.
What stops me from giving the hotel a 5 is that the room was really, too "full" and too cramped. Not very big at all. Also, there was a tear in the wallpaper and cigarette burns in several places in the bathroom even though this was a non-smoking room.
I would stay here again. The price we paid was also reasonable.

Did not like this hotel at all. It is false advertising by claiming this is an all "suites" hotel. This is NOT a suite by any stretch of imagination (scumb-bag trial lawyers listen up, here is another opportunity for your class actions). A very cramped room with a small coffee table height divider separating the "living room" from the "bed room". It is actually smaller than you would expect from a regular room. Furnitue is very run down. Beds are uncomfortable. If you want to save a few bucks, don't do it here.
