Nice hotel. Close to San Francisco airport.

We rented two rooms and they offered us both room right across from each other. It was very convenient for our family.

Pleasantly Surprised

Posted Jul 31, 2015
Pros: Lovely room, courteous staff
Cons: Keep the vending machines stocked, consider adding another waffle iron to the breakfast setup so people don't have to wait a long time.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the room I had booked a month earlier was a suite. Everything was neat and clean. Breakfast wasn't overwhelming, but I was happy with juice, cereal, a waffle, and peanut butter (for protein). My only gripe was that the vending machines were out of the drinks that I wanted to buy.

設備に不相応に値段が高く思えますが、でも

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Pros: フロントの人はいい。エルカミノ沿いで分かりやすい。
Cons: この値段ならタオルはもう少しいいものを置いてほしい。
Location: エルカミノ沿い
最近のこのエリアの宿泊料金は驚くほど高い。通常では考えられない相場なので、一見、施設に不相応に高く思えるこの値段でもこんなものなのかも。

In de buitenwijk San Bruno vlak bij San Francisco

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Goed voor de overnachtingen vlakbij de luchthaven. Ook een makkelijke uitvalsbasis om San Francisco te bezoeken. Op 10 minuten lopen kan je om het half uur met de Calltrain (kosten 2.25 dollar per persoon) naar hartje centrum van San Francisco.

We had a room facing backyard - very silent, good for rest/late sleep. Very good beds/mattresses. Very clean and large room. No smell of any kind (cigars, mold, old furniture). Basement garage very convenient. Very close to SFO and SF as well.

Easy access to airport

Posted Jul 18, 2015
Cons: Access to breakfast before 6.30 am for those early departures.
We spent the night there prior to a flight out and found it to be clean, quiet and convenient with free airport transfers in the morning. Staff we friendly and helpful. The only down side is that breakfast starts at 06.30 am and we left the hotel at 6am so missed the included breakfast.

Very friendly welcome by staff. They were helpful with their knowledge of SFO. Breakfast was also very fresh, waffle maker, bagels, yogurt, muffins, cereal. All that you need for breakfast. Would recommend this hotel. Free car parking.

Great place for a night's rest.

Posted Jul 4, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, nice big room and breakfast.
Location: There are plenty of food options near by and a small supermarket. Probably wouldn't stay here if visiting San Francisco city - too far away.
I stayed here after a flight from NZ, before picking up our rental car the next day. We booked a 1 King Bed room. The room was really large, clean and comfortable. The hotel is a little bit old and on a main road but I did not find it noisy and I am quite a light sleeper. There was a free shuttle from the airport which we used when we landed and to get back to the airport to pick up our car - no hassles. The shuttle driver and the front desk staff were friendly. Breakfast was included and this was simple but plentiful - cereal, bagels, toast, pastries, fruit and yoghurt. There was a fridge and microwave. Free WiFi was excellent. I would stay here again.

A little loud because of airport, found hair in bath tub. Breakfast was okay. Bed was too firm. Easy check in and out.
