I have stayed here a lot this year for work, the remodel is coming along nice, the service is pleasant, and the rooms are clean. There are several places within walking distance to grab some food. The only negative is they don't have breakfast or coffee yet due to the remodel.

Very clean, good location and very polite service. We stayed for one night only in between our San Francisco travels catching up with friends in the local area. This is a good hotel to see Belmont, San Mateo, Foster City. Would be good to stop off if heading to San Francisco.

It's a good thing they are staring renovation soon because things are literally falling apart....But that happens with time and thankfully they explained that to me. Unfortunatally my room didn't have basic things like a phone, alarm clock, and even a lamp. I was very patient with them but I think not having a phone is a safety concern. Given... More

I stayed here last night. I have written reviews for this motel in the past. Somethings have improved, but not by much. I never have used the breakfast room, but my spouse does and was greatly disappointed. I think management could add hangers in the room, we had 2. There is not enough lighting in the room. Only one table... More

We stayed here recently after staying in Marin County for 2 weeks and we needed a hotel close to the airport for an early morning flight. We were a little surprised at the prices for "average" hotel rooms in this area and decided to try the Stone Villa Inn as the price was in the $200 range per night. To... More

We ended up here by mistake as some local friend of my friend organized a San Francisco getaway so, he booked the room for us. I didn't know we were very far from San Francisco, about 30 min. Drive. When we arrived, the beds were extremely wrinkled and seemed like a kid made it, no consistency, and barely tucked on... More

I booked through Hotel Tonight and was promised "free breakfast to keep my hanger at bay." I am pretty sure they meant hunger. There was no free breakfast and the nearest food option is several blocks away. To top it off there was no coffee service in the room. An unidentified mechanical was vibrating the night stand all night long.... More

If you are not spending any time in your room except to sleep, this motel is fine. The parking was a bit challenging and the breakfast not worth eating. The front desk ( a family) were very nice.I stayed 3 nights. I spilled on the duvet cover the first day and the bedding was never changed. Not the cleanest place... More

First, I just wrote this review and my smart/dumb phone blinked and I can't find it. But the people here are so great they deserve another effort 😁 Jessie bent over backwards to accommodate us on short notice. The rooms have recently been remodeled. The bed is soooo comfy, king size. The pillows are fluffy. Linens are clean. Towels are... More

I guess the new management must be doing a good job because there is nothing wrong with the place. For the price (cheap) and location (nowhere) it is fine. After reading the reviews here, I was almost afraid to open the door, but the room was perfectly acceptable. It looks similar to the pictures on their web site. Not exactly,... More
