“Clean and comfortable.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Check your credit card statement when you get home. I found an extra $350.00 fee attached which they said was a smoking fee. Neither my husband or I smoke.

We slept in so we were unable to rate their breakfast service.

Arrived on the hottest day of the year. The common areas were very warm but the room air conditioner worked well. Room was fine and location was good for me. The view from my window was of a warehouse. The staff was friendly but I felt the room was overpriced.

We were familiar with the area, but this was our first stay and we were there for five days. The room was large. The bed was a bit firmer than my sleep number at home, but a good sleep. The breakfast options were the best I have seen for number of choices and service. Janus, Tony and Eppie kept the coffee going and the food trays freshly filled. I also liked the coffee being available all hours. Never had to use the room coffee maker. Free newspaper during the week was nice too.
I do have a problem with the HI corporation though. The two month early charge on the credit card after making an early reservation and the no refund policy caught me by surprise. I won't make the same mistake again.

This was our first stay, and we were very, very pleased with everything except, perhaps, the parking. I say that, because the garage is large and it was difficult for us to figure out where, exactly, we had left our car in relation to the elevators leading into the inn. Other than that, we thought everything was great. We were especially pleased that the A/C was so quiet and the rooms well soundproofed from outside noise. The courtyard is lovely, and we appreciated that it was completely separated from the pool area. The staff was GREAT! Since we have family in the area, we will definitely stay here again when we come to visit. Wonderful location as well.

Room Tip: We loved our room overlooking the courtyard.

The room was wonderful but parking a full sized pick up truck was very difficult

This was a really great stay! We stayed here when we went to see a Giants game in San Francisco. It's an easy drive to the BART station if you want to go into the city. The rooms were spacious, clean, and updated. The hotel is well built because there was constructions going on right outside our window and we couldn't hear the crew in the morning. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are no restaurants within walking distance but it's a short drive down Main Street to shops and restaurants. The breakfast was great! They had a big breakfast room plus a variety of food including eggs, bacon, and cinnamon rolls (which were delicious!). It's also close to the freeway and easy to find. The only thing I would have liked is a fridge and microwave especially if we were staying longer. We only stayed one night but it was a good night.

Recently had the experience of staying at THIS Inn. Staff Could not have been more courteous and respectful. As far as stars are rated, there should be more.

At the reception desk, Jairo Cisneros (had to get his full name) treated my wife and I that we were truly welcomed. If a plaque is warranted, he should be entitled to one.

To all interested, this is the place. I also heard that there is one in Concord.

If ever we are in the area for overnight stay(s), this is what's up.

Respectfully submitted,

Cal & Linda Elam

Room Tip: Just go!!!!!
