Perfect for a two family vacation

The hotel was clean and they provided every toiletry you could possibly need. The restaurant was excellent-just like home cooking.

Perfect Location!

Needing to stay for one night after a late arrival from Europe to SFO, this was the perfect location close to the airport. Spacious rooms/suites and very friendly staff.

I will stay here again

I really like this hotel. The location is good for the airport. That is the reason I stay there to catch early morning flights. It is very clean, the staff is great. Here are a couple of things..it is near railroad tracks and the train goes by a few times a night and does blow it horn. The second there are not elevators in all of the buildings so carrying my heavy bad to the second floor bothers me. I will ask for 1st floor from now on. But those two things will not stop me from staying there again.

It's in the details

This hotel far exceeds expectations for a low-to-mid priced hotel, primarily because of attention to details in design, amenities, and service. Just a few examples: the airport shuttle picks you up at your door, not the lobby; the free breakfast starts at 4:00 am and features gourmet pastries; the shower head is high up for tall people; great lounge in the breakfast area with working fireplace, comfortable sofas; very appealing paint colors and art. I could go on. This hotel is the choice to stay near the airport in SFO. Go for it!

Easy Layover

Between dead of night flight and early morning departure this hotel/motel was a nice fit. While the reception is a touch tired, the room was up-to-date, with pillow top beds, hard and soft pillows, and a small but nice bathroom. There is a departure snack and the shuttle was on time. All in all, if you are looking for your basic quick layover between flights this is a good value choice.

Roomy and convenient location

The room is big with two queen beds. Clean. Location is good (just 2 miles from the SFO airport. It is right next to a railroad track but the train noise is not too bad at night time.
