What travelers to San Mateo are saying

Next time I'm there I want to visit the Air Museum. It's right off US 101. Next stay I will ask to stay above the second floor. I didn't seek out restaurants close by but didn't see any either, might have to go out further for that.

I had business in Redwood Shores, and lived in the area for many years -- I enjoy and miss San Mateo, Belmont, San Carlos, Redwood City/Shores, and the other wonderful cities on the Peninsula -- 'just can't afford to live there!

Within a 10 minute drive I was able to find a street which had many different restaurants to choose from. There was also a recreational park near the hotel. Finding the hotel from the airport was not hard.
