It smelled very strongly of cleaning fluid and it was overpowering to the point that I had to change hotels. Whatever they use to clean the room was like paint stripper...I slept under the covers because of that smell.
The room was nice enough and it was clean

a little rude

We booked a room with a bed and a pull out couch. When we got there there was no couch and we were told we had to pay an extra $40.00 for a roll away bed or they would cancel our reservation because they had no other rooms. Not Happy

The fridge was turned off but we were not told when we checked in.
The location was easy in relation to the San Mateo Events Center

The noise from El Camino was a bit louder than we expected. Also could hear the footsteps in the room above ours. Perhaps the desk clerk could stagger bookings so that wouldn't happen. Couch in our jr. suite was soiled.
Good location, good access to San Mateo and Foster City, where we spent our days. Very comfortable bed. Nice to have breakfast included--cold cereal, toast w/ condiments, waffles, fruit, juice, coffee/tea. In-room fridge, micro and coffee maker.

Feeling is far from top. Expensive for a so-so hotel. More of a motel plus. Breakfast is not worth taking.
OK room, large and spacy.

It would be great if there were a ramp or elevator to make it easier to get up the stairs with heavy luggage.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was nice to be able to have a quick breakfast before heading out, although if you want something heartier, the Omelette House is right next door. It was also great having a coffee pot, microwave and small fridge in the room. There is ample parking, including an additional lot that is well lit at night. Although located on the busy El Camino Real, it was quiet in the room. I would happily stay here again!

Internet is kind of slow.

I arrived at the property at 10:55 Friday night and the office was locked and no one was behind the counter. I called the property number twice before I got someone to answer. The person was somewhat difficult to understand because of his accent. Otherwise the check-in process was OK. I did not like that there was no elevator to the second floor. I have difficulty with stairs and hauling a suitcase and briefcase up two flights of stairs was not pleasant.
The room was very clean and reasonably modern. The bed was one of the best hotel beds I have ever slept in (I am a fairly frequent traveller). The property was quiet also. The coffee in the morning was good by comparison to other hotel properties. Overall, this was a good value property.

Nothing just perfect very nice people work hard to make your stay comfortable.
Staff are very helpful and go out of their way to help and make you feel at home whilst away on your trip.

Most comfortable bed I've experienced at any hotel. Clean and fresh room. Good heater/heating.

Poor lighting if you want to read in bed.
The bed was extremely comfortable. Our room 215 near the back was quiet. The room was very clean.

I requested a room where I didn't have to climb any stairs and when I checked in at 5:00 PM all the bottom floor rooms were taken even though I made the reservation for a room on bottom floor 2 months previously!
The bed was so comfortable and I didn't hear any noise during the night.

Breakfast mediocre, but was as expected. Shower head placed low.
Excellent value for money in this area (regular web price was much higher). Location excellent for our purposes (visiting family in San Carlos)--but not if your purpose is to visit San Francisco. Refreshing to be in a family owned hotel instead of a chain. Great bed. Clean, very comfortable room. Ask for room on end (we had #211), window will face outside rather than to walkway. We will definitely stay here again.

No complaints at all.
Nice location and staff. Beds are very comfy. Coffee maker, fridge and microwave in the room. I have stayed at 13 hotels during my last stay in US, this one has the strongest Wi-fi.

Close to train station. Gave us an early check-in.

It is very centrally located and it was quiet. It had a fridg, which I liked. The breakfast was coffee, juice and wrapped bearclaws with a waffle machine. I bought yogart at the Trader Joe's just down the El Camino. I will stay here again.

We had a room above us and heard a creaky floor every time someone above us walked.
Stayed only one night before heading up the coast but would make this my go-to place if planning a longer trip in the Bay area.
