    The front desk was friendly and tried to be accommodating The paint and general appearance of the hotel was ok I like to be able to open the windows for air.

    The car wash dryer next door sounded like a hurricane when it was running. The free breakfast was one of the worst I have ever seen, very poor and meager choices, messy area, and they stop at 9:30 which is really too early. The free soap is laughable, and shampoo in small & inconvenient foil packs. No hand cream. The a/c control on the wall doesn't control anything (although it appears to be working), and we had to use the manual controls on the window unit which doesn't give the option of constant fan with heat or a/c at the same time (which is very desirable, especially with the car wash next door. You have to choose either fan and not A/C-heat, or have the fan kick on and off. The plugs to the hair dryer and coffee maker stopped working (they did get that fixed). The parking spots were extremely small, making getting in and out of the car a real effort. The room appeared fairly clean until you look under the bed or behind anything. The towels were the thinnest I have ever seen, and they only supply the bare minimum. The light controls on the bed reading lamps were hit and miss and hurt your fingers, and the lighting in general was not enough. The one switch in the bathroom turns on both the small light and the loud exhaust fan, so there is no choice, and there no heat lamp or fan available.

    The hotel is located close to the airport (about 8 minutes away by car). The hotel provides a free shuttle service to and from the airport. The room was big, quiet and clean. The front desk employees were very friendly.

    The breakfast was terrible. If the price was cheaper, I would not complain about the breakfast. But the fact that we paid 223 us Dollars for 2 nights and didn't get a decent breakfast was extremely disappointing.

    Fabulous

    Hotel room was large and clean. there was a microwave and fridge and coffee maker in room, very useful. Bathroom was very clean. I stayed in this hotel because I had an early flight from SFO the following morning. The free shuttle was very convenient (departed once every hour and took less than 10 minutes). Hotel was very comfortable, staff were helpful and the rate was reasonable. I would stay there again.

    1. Asked for a wake-up call so that we could get the shuttle to the airport; didn't get it, and so missed the shuttle. 2. description on website is waaaayyy exaggerated. Not that great - small hotel, minimal services. 3. description of room was incorrect - did not have "separate seating area" in King Suite. Was just a couch right next to the bed.

    Fabulous

    The size of the king suite was great and the bed was fairly comfortable. The price was excellent.

    On our 4th day, the staff did not service the room- no towels, bed not made or replenish the coffee.

    Good

    Free WiFi, when it works. Decent value for money. Free hourly shuttle to/from airport.

    Furniture dated. Rooms are not properly sound proofed, so get some earplugs to avoid being woken up by various neighbours' activities.

    Superb

    The hotel was exceed my expectations in positive way. I expected lower quality of everything but I get more from everything. The stuff on the reception is very polite and all time on service, all my demands and questions were executed at the moment I asked. Room service were effective. They did their job on time, and they clean without affect my things. Hotel is not so big, but room were big, equipped with all necessary equipment even more like micro oven, fridge with frosting department, coffe machine jacuzzi bath.

    The breakfast were very poor, I eat just one time.

    Fabulous

    The location was great, walking distance to everything, restraunts, bars, bike rental, etc. supper friendly staff and very helpful with directions and suggestions!

    I thought it was over priced. It was ok but certaintly not new, the toilet paper holder was broke off the wall. There was rust on the door frame in the bathroom, I know this is being picky, but we spent 200 for the night and I would expect things just right. All that being said, I would stay again, but I would try to Booked.net it thanks

    The room is clean.

    The service was bad. They didn't provide enought supplies in the room even though we asked. E.G. Towels. They did not provide or respond to our needs. There was no writing pad or pen available in the room. Although they claimed they provide C. Breakfast, there were not enought food. Food run out at 8:00. n they didn't refill.

    Loved the location and the shuttle - absolute bonus. The front desk people were really nice, my room was perfect. Definitely had a great experience.

    The price, I know its in Cali, close to the airport, but it was still too expensive.

    Good

    The room was basically clean and free of stains on the carpet. Nice to have microwave and fridge.

    Their continental breakfast could use some upgrade with say fruit, waffle iron, ice water, hot water.

    Exceptional

    On a budget best kept secret in bay area. 10 minutes from san francisco airport. Service was great and room was clean. Very impress with the free wi- fi. And speed downtown san bruno one block away Again great for the price and the service will return again and recommend to friends

    The carpet in the room could have been updated and it was not advertise that the hotel had a shuttle service to the airport.
