This hotel/motel is ok for a one night stay and thats about it. We checked out after the first night, it would have been sooner but didnt want to lose our money after checking in. This place didnt appear to be in a safe area as the staff reminded us not to leave personal items in the car. I would not recommend a stay here. The tv didn't work the sliding closet door was broken the tub drained slow carpet was dirty it had cheese on the floor so it may not have been cleaned properly before we arrived.

Front desk was rushing us out of the breakfast area at 8:45 indicating they close at 9 am. At exactly 9 am they closed the lights on us as we were finishing our breakfast and left us in the dark. When asked to please wait a few, she said No They Are Closed. Very rude customer Hospitality. She need to not work in hospitality setting and work as a time keeper.

I was very surprised to find that we had to pay $12 per day for parking. The parking lot was a standard hotel motel parking lot with plenty of room, cannot understand why they wanted $12 per night. Just be aware of this when booking the property. Otherwise everything was OK.

Nice for the price. $12 parking charge was strange for motel style set-up. If I had known from Orbitz description, could have shuttled or ubered to save most if not all of that fee

Cleanness. Very good service. Very convenient close to SFO airport.

Appreciated the airport shuttle; decent rooms, clean, friendly and helpful staff. Place is not new but we would stay there again.

Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Hotel staff was very friendly. Continental breakfast was a little light on choices, but filling. Good for a 1 or 2 night stay, but not recommended for longer stays.

Hallway is dirty , need to upgrade, poor cutomer service .

It was a clean bedroom with a comfortable bed! Great service at reception .

I didn’t like the door to my room being in the outside, I didn’t like the air conditioning system, I didn’t like the hint of sewer smell in the air, I didn’t like the small cups for morning coffee or the breakfast provided.

Needs major updating. Could not Hang Clothes in Closet as they were so shallow. Original room 307 Had no bed skirt and outlets were worn so as power for devices were intermittent. Middle of our stay the vent in the bath room air vent leaked tinted water. Had to move to another room. I don't blame staff but please rooms are not up to par.

staff got our reservations a little mixed up. I was part of a larger party and we had asked for double rooms and got single. they apologized and corrected the measure with a roll away bed. their staff was VERY helpful and accommodating.

The room had a broken lock & dirty lamp shades!! It was very run down & felt icky!!!

The rooms smelled like new carpet glue. Way too strong gave us headaches. The breakfast was mediocre.

They do not mention that they charge a $12 per night parking fee

Near the airport, spacious room, big bed, has most of what I expected.

Good location, good people in the counter. Really bad rooms The air condition was like 70’s air condition it made a lot of noise and didn’t work properly, the doors on the bathroom were broken, I will understand that and a $70 hotel but in $150 hotel it is crazy.

It is clean and nice. Price is very reasonable, but it is a little noisy.
