I styed for three nights. I felt safe, even as a woman traveling alone. The room was clean and comfortable, a large refrigerator, microwave and big TV. Wifi was free and worked well for me. The only negative is that the room never had maid service for the three nights I was there. I was gone all day each day,... More

We stayed he two nights during our trip through San Fran area. At first we were worried. Arrived late at night. A couple of rough looking characters standing by thier car in parking lot, a faint smell of you-know-what. But the staff was kind and courteous. Our room was not fancy but was clean with a working microwave & fridge.... More

When I stay in hotels, I usually don't sleep well, but the bed was soooo comfortable, I had no choice but to sleep like a baby. It also helped that the place was clean & quiet. Staying here didn't break the bank either, you can't beat that!

On a road trip to San Francisco to visit my son and his family we normally had been staying at a motel nearer their home in Berkeley. Due to the graduation at UC Berkeley our usual motel was booked. We started looking around for an alternate where we could stay until the graduation crowd left town. After staying at the... More

We spent four nights here in a nicely renovated, spacious room. Had to move furniture around a bit to get access to outlets. Internet was slower than at home, but we are spoiled by a lightning fast system so it's not fair to whine. Bed was new and therefore very comfortable. Freeway close without the noise. We thought the wall-mounted... More

I have to admit, I haven't stayed at many hotels in the San Francisco area and I do realize that prices here are higher than many other cities. But I was not impressed with this place. I'll start with the positives. The guy behind the counter was very friendly. The rooms seem to have had some renovations done and were... More

We found this hotel on the internet, and we really didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised! The rooms are newly renovated, nice big tv, and good WiFi! Not a really big room, but very clean! The sink however was really small, and they seem to have a budget policy on towels; we had to get extra!... More

Rooms renovated and spotless. Some minor glitches....room phone didn't work, towels a bit small, but you can ask for extras. Located adjacent to a freeway interchange, but plantation shutters and the hum of the AC drowned out most of the street noise. Ninety-two bucks, including taxes and fees, for a room with two double beds....much cheaper than SF. I should... More

I stayed here for a month while relocating for work. While initially I was worried I would hate this place it's very livable. My room looked and smelled clean. There is someone in the office 24/7 and lots of security cameras which made me feel safe. The cleaning staff does a good job of keeping the property nice. They have... More

I have stayed here in the past due to availability...it has never disappointed and seems to have gotten a little better over the last 2-3 years, so I figured I would take the time and do them a solid. The first thing I noticed was that the rooms that I normally stay in were remodeled/upgraded...so, now, the non smoking rooms... More
