was a nour stayice stay,very clean. Enjoyed our stay

Very suffocated air quality in room. super loud AC, noisy outside , very basic amenities , only 1 super slow elevator, lousy room, no utensils, poor equipment in room. Only good thing is people are nice.

sound proof is really bad. I could hear the next room clearly and the airplane passing from the above. the air conditioner is really loud. all of these made it difficult to sleep at night

Staff was great. The grounds were nice. Close to airport and walking distance to a small mall and Levi field. Room very smalk/tight with much noise from road and other people staying at the hotel. Hotel needs to keep guests quiet at night. Disappointing selection of restaurants nearby. Would be nice to have a microwave in the room.

Nice location to Levi Stadium.. staff was wonderful ..

Super friendly hotel staff. Got a free drink during happy hour which is when we checked in. Nothing like getting a free drink at check in. Overall this place was great.

We had a fast check in and were set up with a clean and nice sized room.

Great price near the Levi Stadium. Walking distance to a few eateries & convenience store.

Love staying here on Niners weekends. We're from Portland Oregon and don't know the area well so the hotel is perfect. Only recommendation is have check out like noon at least on game day. We can't all tailgate 😁

Great location, plenty of parking, comfy beds, pool was wonderful... only complaint is the size of the room. Very little space to move around other than straight to bed. Staff was awesome.

In December we booked a stay with 2 double beds for myself and my 2 children (7,9) for Saturday May 12th . A week before our stay I received a call from the manager because they overbooked their rooms with double beds. They needed volunteers to change to a king with a sofa bed. He was nice about it, offered free breakfast and said he couldn't offer additional discounts because we booked through a 3rd party site. He offered to throw in a bottle of wine. I asked specifically, if there was room for 2 children on the sofa bed and he said yes, they're double beds. After that I decided to be nice and take the offer. This was a big mistake. The sofa bed was a TWIN NOT A DOUBLE. There WAS NOT room for both kids in the bed. We decided to stick with it because the entire reason we were in the room was that the rooms with doubles were sold out. Also- that bottle of wine, I would find out a couple days later was supposed to be given to me anyway because of my Orbitz status. So he offered to throw in something that I was already supposed to get. My reward for trying to be nice was sleeping with my kid in our bed kicking my back and keeping me up for half the night. This is something I was specifically trying to avoid. This is not worth free breakfast at IHOP! I was mislead to believe that my kids would still have a bed big enough for BOTH of them. My advice, do not trust the manager if he calls asking you to change rooms because they made a mistake.

Other than the elevator was out of commission the hotel was fine.

The hotel needs to be maintained in better shape. Outside hallways leading to rooms are dirty. The rooms look nothing like the pictures online.

Bizarre place. Poor attempt at flipping an old building into a "modern" hotel however, the cheap retro furniture could not makeup for the tiny cramped spaces, old plumbing and unmotivated staff. There's no room service so its more like ado it yourself motel.
