As others have observed, it's not "By the Bay," but that's not the issue.
There are better places to stay at comparable prices.
Please check my other reviews - I'm NOT all that picky.
If you DO stay here, ask the management to remove the charge for the safe from your bill. You probably thought that scam went away years ago, but it lives on here at $1.50. Ok, a small charge, but who actually USES an in-room safe?
The shower felt like pin pricks with no adjustment to fix that.
The slide lock channel (replacing a "chain" lock) to the inside hall door was barely hanging on by one screw. Not real secure. The steel door to the parking lot was peeled up on the corner. It looked like it had been opened with a can opener.
There are six tables in the breakfast area for about 80 hotel rooms. Most of those tables are for two people. The cute sign says that they call it "cozy," but you can be the judge. There ARE trays so you could take food out of that area. Hint: Trays are hidden below the counter, you wouldn't normally see them.
Room was clean, but smelled a bit musty.
Bed was OK.
Bath was redone and huge, but strange in that the inside hall entrance is through the bath.
WiFi worked fine.
