Excellent cleaning staff

Room was spotless every time we came back to the hotel. Bartenders were nice enough to open our wine and give us glasses. Other then the shower flooding the bathroom every time we used it, the hotel was great.

Great for the price!!!

Aside from the location, there is not much I can say bad about this hotel. The rooms are spacious and the beds were oh so comfortable. Stay here on business or whatever you need to do in the area. The commute to San Francisco is about 50 minutes.

Easter weekend

I had a late check-in Saturday night, took a shower and just wanted to relax and watch a movie. The on-demand feature did not work, front desk had an engineer come to room, stayed an hour and TV still didn't work. They offered a free breakfast but when I returned home, the "free" breakfast was charged on my credit card. Had to call the hotel and get it taking care of. But staff are friendly.

Business trip

Overall it was an "ok" experience. I had a late checkin. When I checked in the staff was very accommodating. I caught to my room, had a nice shower, got into bed and ondemand movies didnt work. I called front desk, they had an engineer come up to the room, he stayed for an hour, trying to fix the t.v. instead of just giving me a new room. It was late and at that point I just to go to sleep. After he left, t.v. still didnt work right. They did accommodate me with a free breakfast the next morning.
