If You Want To Save Yourself A Headache Do Not Stay In This Hotel. Absolutely WOST HOTEL In California. Its Filthy and The Staff is Extremely Rude. They Do Not Care About Guest And They Will Be Glad To STEAL YOUR MONEY. The Manager has no Integrity. This Place NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN.

Mix up between internet service and motel resulted in maximum check in and following interaction unbearable.-----The Room: No windows made it feel like a jail cell. Black mold covered 90% of the grout in the bathroom floor. Mattress cover had blood stains 2 inches in diameter and many cum stains. Awful! Slept on the floor. Room for 2 had only...

I pulled in at 2am and the check-in experience was fine but I didn't really look at the room until the morning because I just fell asleep as soon as I got into the room. The next morning I noticed that there was paint and chunks of the door missing, presumably from someone trying to wedge the door open. The...

A few in the office are rude, which is not the first thing we look for as paying guests, right? But alot of evenings there's a nice man there that's a pleasure to deal with. The rude staff, though, tends to keep the decent guests away and what's left over is a hoodlum-rich guest population.

My partner and decided to stay here a well needed rest. We had stayed here before, and the thought the rooms were adequate and reasonably pleasant. That was not the case this visit. We thought we'd book the bridal suite. It promised many things that simply were not there. The first faux pas was the fireplace. It did not function,...

Bruce, I'm really sorry about the various issues. I completely understand how unsatisfied you are. We will be taking care of these issues soon. The grout will no longer be tinted black, carpet will be replaced with wood flooring, bathroom tiles, furniture, and curtains will also be replaced. -Jae

To be blunt I wasn't expecting much, but needing a much needed mental margarita, my husband and I decided this place would do. Well....surprise, surprise,surprise. We had one of the best nights sleep we'd had in a while. I suggest you bring your own towels, the ones provided are best used for exfoliation....they're a bit "brisk". Overall I say go...

Thank you for the kind review. I'm glad we meet some of the more important expectations and I'll see what we can do about getting a better selection of towels. Should you return you may always call the front desk and request a new set of towels. Maybe you got an unusually rough set,,, Too many construction workers not staying...

I had a room over the lobby. It was noisy. Woke up every hour when a door was shut. Bathroom was full of mold on the tile. Located in a nice part of town from what I could see. Won't stay there again. It was the cheapest we could find but overall not good.

Although, I don't agree that we had mold on the tile, but we are doing the work. rooms are getting a complete overhaul this year. Same rates, but guess will receive a much higher quality experience. -Jae

Pros: a quick drive to the Golden Gate Bridge; easy access to Hwy 101; close to restaurants; friendly receptionist, beds weren't bad Cons: questionable location; sketchy people loitering in the parking lot (I was trapped in my car!); not much of a breakfast (muffins cut in half, some juice, no coffee) I probably wouldn't recommend this hotel to females travelling...

I am so sorry you felt uncomfortable. Please do return as we are making major upgrades and renovations. Safety is our main priority and we do not want women to feel trapped.

Priced too high for a less than Motel 6 experience. Very hard mattresses, I have never slept on a more uncomfortable bed in my life, and I like to camp in the woods.

I guess the saying is true; any room with a good shower, is a decent room. We're phasing out the unexpectedly hard mattress early. Sorry for the inconvenience, Jae

Reviewed 7 July 2015

Pros: Booked a room for 7/4 and 7/5 two days prior; permitted to check in an hour early; reasonable rates; spacious room; small fridge; pretty view from slider. Megan was extremely accommodating. Cons: Concrete block (aka: bed). The floor would have been softer and more comfortable. Strong smell of cigarette smoke when I walked in the office.

Thank you for the fair review. Yes, several of our beds from a particular vendor are incredibly hard. We're definitely trying to phase those out early. We'll also try to air out the office more if we notice someone has been smoking. thanks, Jae
