Difficult to find, especially at night. My room stank horribly I had to turn ac full blast and freeze the heck out . Attendant was fast from friendly. Their idea of continental breakfast was cold cereal, toasts, and waffles ughh. I would not recommend to anybody. Perhaps someone I want to have a bad time.

Nightmarish - Never go there!

I am a trans woman. I was having serious surgery nearby and reserved a handicapped room. Arriving terribly swollen and seriously in danger of bleeding to death if I didn't get off my feet, I entered the tiny lobby that was at around 90 degrees in temperature. When I slowly limped in, hurting and barely able to walk, the Innkeeper "Sir"-ed me, and then refused to give me my handicapped room, blaming the internet travel provider for "not telling him" about it. Even though I was very obviously hurt and just out of a hospital, he gave me an upstairs room! I was in no condition to not take it. I had to carry heavy suitcases upstairs! The room TV control didn't work. The shower drain plug was broken and rolling around in the tub. The aircon sounded like a diesel truck. The room was nearly out of toilet paper. I needed to leave early as it was so bad, so I scheduled a follow up appointment two days early to go home, when I was still in great pain. Returning from the doctor, when I limped in to check out and asked them to pro rate the three hours I stayed past check out, a female innkeeper now, (wife?) with a sneer of disdain and also "Sir"ing me, tried to tell me I had to pay for the whole future night! They ended up charging me a whole lot more than they should and I couldn't do anything about it. I was illegally not given a handicapped room, and then I was treated horribly! As business people, why were they so poor in their treatment toward me? I wish I could get my money back. One of the worst experiences of my life.

One Night Stay

I stayed here because it was cheap & close to the airport. Couldn't find my reservation but because I brought my confirmation print out they gave me a room anyway. Not the nicest but served it's purpose.

bottom of the line

Not good. Arrived very late and was given a room on the second floor - no elevator, had to drag my heavy bag up a long flight of stairs. The room had not been cleaned! Bed unmade, bathroom a mess. Dragged my bag back down the long flight of stairs to the office, where the unfriendly owner didn't even apologize. She gave me a room on the ground floor, after telling me previously that there was no room available on the ground floor. The room was ok, hard bed, whole place a bit shabby and depressing.

Decent Enough Place, Decent Enough Price.

Most of hotel furniture, decor is fairly modern, whole hotel non-smoking, which is nice. Breakfast isn't anything to write home about, but the fridge in the room means it doesn't have to be. Only complaint was that during my initial check-in I was assigned a room which already had someone in it, which I then proceeded to enter, to a very awkward meeting with a stranger.

Decent value but lousy area

Overall not a bd place. Queen size room was pretty small and the tv has an annoying constant popup add that they said was supposed to be there. Front desk are a bunch of numbnuts and not friendly at all.

Average place

Spent one day here and it was fine. Location is about five minutes from SFO, a few minutes from downtown san Mateo with some great restaurants on 3rd ave. the staff was okay, helpful when asked. The room was very clean and had a large flat screen, mini fridge and microwave. The bed was comfortable.
