- Easy access & Location - Simple functional room - Good staff
- No real breakfast - Room not welcoming - Facilities are you the newest
Good location off 101 Park in front of your room Rooms recently renovated
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
The TV was nice flat screen.
The room seemed small. The shower head was not good.
Very comfortable bed, nice room and bathroom, well equipped, nice buildings and decoration, good breakfast. Everything good but neighborhood.
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!
People fighting in the middle of the night
Easy parking, people are nice, bed is confortable.
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).
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
room decor, bed quality, wifi was excellent
really poor breakfast selection, slow running hot water, skimpy towels.
Noisy. Bed hard as a rock. Door lock barely locked
Size of room Freshness of everything in the room
Noise of outside aircon/ice machine Outside lights that shine into the room at night
poor bed and wifi.. overall very disappointed even for $110..
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.
Rooms were small. Dark carpet seemed dirty...they could use a facelift.
It was a good room in a close proximity to San Francisco.
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.
1.convenient close to main roads and airport easy to get into san francisco 2.parking and it was free 3.wifi free
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
Staff was great at the front desk the rooms looked clean and beautifully decorated The main dining area was Nice also
The price was too expensive and it's too bad they change prices and isn't offer a better government or military discount
coffee machine in room actually worked! good parking. close to several restaurants, coffee shops, and businesses.
breakfast was a like a freeway rest stop- shrinkwrapped pastries and stale bread. ick.
Room was comfortable, large king bed, great AC, comfy blankets and pillows, nice TV, nicely decorated, functional bathroom, clean towels
Pillows smelled like they had been used, something splashed on the floor in front of the TV, no snacks in the vending machines, front desk person had a thick accent (not a problem by itself) and spoke a bit too fast for me to understand.
spacious room and good facilities.
The bed was comfortable.
The refrigerator was too warm. The floors were kind of dirty and the toilet had paper in it (not flushed.
Bang for your buck. Very inexpensive but it was clean and cared for. Nothing special but for the price you get everything you need.
They weren't consistent about letting me print stuff for free the gentleman at night didn't have any issues while the gentleman in the morning said only a few printouts were free.
Front desk staff excellent, friendly, helpful.
Loud partying Fri night until after 2a.m. Stale bread & bagels, old fruit, incomplete offerings for breakfast.
close to where we were going
We stayed here before. the price seems reasonable but the room was small, parking tight. Nothing exciting about this place. We get there and the clerk says our credit card is no good. I said run the same card again and it was fine. I don't like this place.
