2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Woke up at 6:30 am to strong smell of burned onions coming into room from heating system and or windows and doors. We were on 3rd floor above breakfast area. Couldn't eat breakfast due to overcrowded conditions and strong odor.

Least expensive hotel in the area. Easy access to airport and BART. Right on the bay. Decent free breakfast. Good value for the money.

It is a regular hotel near airport. Nothing special.

hot and old but at least it was expensive.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Wasn't too bad of a hotel but I had a few minor complaints. The first being we were for 3 days and not one time did housekeeping come and empty our trash bins or change the sheets our trash was overflowing and I had to take the bag out of the trash can and put it on the patio because the trash was starting to smell. I kicked my shoes under the bed and noticed when I went to go retrieve them there was a bunch of trash and old food under there. First room we were given the toilet was clogged. I called the front desk and she stated there was nobody on site to fix it and that all she could do was give me a plunger to fix it myself!? After I gave her a huh!? She offered to give us a new room. Now for the good. There breakfast was pretty good and the staff was friendly. Room was nice and the bay view was awesome. Be warned that you can hear every plane land because it's close to the airport but I had brought my box fan with me because I can't sleep without it so it didn't bother me too much. Rooms were decently sound proof. I would stay here again if I couldn't find anything cheaper because the price was right.

If you want to enjoy your beauty sleep I would recommend not to book any hotels near an airport. Our sleep was interrupted by the airplane noises all night and it wouldn’t stop. I see why the hotel offers complimentary earplugs. But the overal comfort and cleanliness was great. Actually one of the best comfort bed, pillows and blankets out of my 3 night stay in San Francisco.

Spent one night there enroute from Munich to Albuquerque Good price, comfortable bed

Good hotel for the price. Vincent was especially helpful at check-in, and worked hard to meet our needs. Thank you, Vincent!

Picked this hotel for its proximity to both SF and Stanford University. Nothing fancy. Comfortable bed (which I usually cannot say). Simple but good breakfast.

Close proximity to the airport five minute shuttle ride, staff was very pleasant rooms were very clean

Great place for late arrivals or early morning departures. Or vice versa.

Good Buffet Breakfast & Place to Crash after Working the weekend at the SFO Airport

Arriving late and tired, unfamiliar with the new timezone in SF, requested a 5am wakeup call not to oversleep and miss the morning flight the next day. Also, given a room on the last floor, end of the hallway with no staff to help with the heavy luggage. The staff FORGOT to make the requested wakeup call, and when confronted, dismissed it as not a big issue and not even an apology was given. Luckily had alarm set at the right time (despite confusion on different time zone).

The guy at the front desk was nice. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast hot and yummy. The view was beautiful. Overall we had a great stay with a good view of the ocean.

Very enjoyable to sit in the room and watch planes take off and land. The windows could have been cleaner. We were on the second floor and the people in the room above us were very noisy.

We were woke at three a.m. by the phone ringing with no answer. Then someone trying to get in our front door.stopped for awhile then tried again. Called the front desk which was busy so we used our cell and it went through. He said it was him and he thought we were in a different room so he made more cards for another couple and came to help them when they couldn't get in.

Way much better hotels for the price they offer. Since I need to fill more in this block or else I cant submit my review, ill just copy and paste point mentioned above. Way much better hotels for the price they offer

The hotel was ok, although it is dated and I believe overpriced.

Excellent accommodations and staff. Only drawback is the airplane noise...price you pay for great convenience! Very good restaurant (elephant bar) next door, also.

A/C barely worked, could not keep the room cool. Cheap hotel, will be spending a littl more to get a better place next time.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience of the smell, our small kitchen is located in the front lobby and the smell may reach up to the top. We are aware that our breakfast area is on the small side, however, we do have couches in front, tables outside and we do not discourage bringing meals into the rooms.
