Not the best neighborhood, right off a busy road, the breakfast was not impressive.
It was clean and the bed was comfortable.
The bed was too soft and a bit used. The safety doorlock was broken and of no use, so this gave a very unsafe feeling.
The room was nice and clean, with a functional working desk. The bath room was small but functional and very clean
Marque de Sade shower. Impossible to adjust shower temp. Broken non existent rusty soap holder.on sink.
You do have to watch for the entrance. Signage is a little on the petite side. Otherwise, very private.
It was very clean, grounds are well maintained and accessorized, nice morning brunch, quiet in the evenings, friendly staff, room was as pictured, bedding was clean and in excellent condition, easy access to freeways, beach, city, shopping, restaurants and airport. Excellent for the price. Some covered parking with wider parking spots. Nice touch
very thin walls, you can hear people's snoring or talking. heating is by an outdated, noisy electrical device.
Some paint chipping in bathroom.
Clean, small refrig & microwave, free wifi.
I loved the wood flooring. Andthe room was up to date and modern.
Renovated, very nice room for the price.
King bed was a little too soft. The small refrigerator is boxed in a cabinet. It looks great but the result is excess heat which keeps the contents warm. Should remove cabinet door or cut ventilation holes.
Staff, clean rooms and property, safe feeling. Really a nice place!
- No real breakfast - Room not welcoming - Facilities are you the newest
- Easy access & Location - Simple functional room - Good staff
Night window for check in Internet would not connect (free) No hot water (luke warm at best for shower) Front desk shrugged off no hot water complaint. Lost my biz
Good location off 101 Park in front of your room Rooms recently renovated
The room seemed small. The shower head was not good.
The TV was nice flat screen.
Floors are dirty - they have vacuumed floors well but not washed so the floor was despite vacuuming dusty. Use shoes in the room! Despite excellent bed there was impossible to sleep at least to 1-2 a.m. because other guests made loud noise and shouting to each other. We suspect that there were some prostitute-meeting or that kind of rooms above us. We are not sure but so it seemed to us. So do not take rooms at the end of the property!
Very comfortable bed, nice room and bathroom, well equipped, nice buildings and decoration, good breakfast. Everything good but neighborhood.
People fighting in the middle of the night
Internet is almost unusable at night. They use economical showerhead which gives so tiny amount of water that it feels like a joke. Room was also a little bit smelly (humidity).
Easy parking, people are nice, bed is confortable.
Everything cheap. Cheap. But they want money like for Hillton
The room was very clean and the facility was very great!
It was quiet, clean and well located. Breakfast could have been better. But value for money
really poor breakfast selection, slow running hot water, skimpy towels.
room decor, bed quality, wifi was excellent
Noisy. Bed hard as a rock. Door lock barely locked
Noise of outside aircon/ice machine Outside lights that shine into the room at night
Size of room Freshness of everything in the room
poor bed and wifi.. overall very disappointed even for $110..
Rooms were small. Dark carpet seemed dirty...they could use a facelift.
Compared to other options at this price and above. It was good for the money...just to crash the the night. Free Breakfast was a nice feature.
The only call out was tons of short hairs on the sheets when we pulled back the blanket. We did not sleep under the covers and brought our own personal blankets.
It was a good room in a close proximity to San Francisco.
1.the breakfast very poor 2.the pool dirty and cold 3.lift not working so had to carry heavy bag upstairs 4.wifi very slow 5.coffee machine did not work
1.convenient close to main roads and airport easy to get into san francisco 2.parking and it was free 3.wifi free
