    For an older hotel I was impressedClean NON-musky old smell and both bar and restaurant on site. Small rooms but it is the old style hotel. I noticed that the halls , elevator floors were clean. It shows that the management is paying attention to their open areas. WE TRAVEL CROSS COUNTRY SEVERAL TIMES EACH YEAR AND THIS OLDER HOTEL ...

      Bay Landing Hotel SFOI enjoyed staying @ this hotel even just for one night. I’ve stayed @ a lot of hotels before but this one is the nicest so far that I got. The room was big, clean, quiet, & I like the arts on the wall. I would definitely stay here again next time. Thanks

                  Great place to stayI was pleased with the room, staff was nice. It was a bit warm, as the thermostat only goes to 65. Nearby bars and restaurants were fun and it was easy to get to. Parking at the hotel ran us $60 for a night, so that's a bit steep.
