Good breakfast next door at sister hotel lounge. Enjoyed waterside room. Sunsets too! Felt COVID ‘safe’ because of extra cleaning and disinfecting protocol. Could detail vacuum more. Have made several trips there. Am a local, Love it there! I find it quite peaceful. TV selection is good with Premiere channels. Soaker tub a must do.

We agree. It's the best view of any Bay Area hotel if you can believe that. How was everything else during your stay? It appears we can improve, so let us know. Thank you

Helpful Staff

Pros: Location on the bay, cleanliness, friendliness of staff, and breakfast! Also offered a complimentary shuttle to and from the ferry.
Location: Right off the highway, but never heard the noise. Not a lot of food options within walking distance. Took the ferry to San Francisco - plenty to do!
Although more expensive than our other hotels, this was by far the nicest. The hotel staff was helpful as we were first timers to the area and weren't sure about how to get around. Breakfast was good and offered many choices including hot items. It was also nice that we were able to enjoy fruit, juices, and yogurt through out the day if desires.

Extra large rooms & everything you'll ever need!

Pros: The hotel was perfect, the room was perfect. There were snack & drink in the lobby, even at night. Wish we had more time to explore the pool, etc.
Cons: How to fill tub without shower head turning on. Parking spaces were very limited/lot was small.
Location: It is next to a freeway, but I did not notice the road noise as an issue as other reviewers noted being their biggest complaint.
We were in SJ visiting family & had a wedding to attend on Sunday, so I thought it would be easier to book a hotel nearby the wedding venue. We checked in about 10pm, but I called the hotel prior at 5pm to confirm our reservations because I had read on other sites of hotels giving away reserved rooms if you didn't check in on time. The front desk clerk told me our room would not be given away as long as we checked in before 3am. A very large room. There was even a small foyer area with a table. The bathroom was extra large, had plenty of lights, a single sink with granite counters. The tub/shower was standard size, but it had an area to sit at the end of the tub. Great for shaving legs. We were not able to figure out how to fill the tub without the water coming out of the shower head. There was a large desk with a newer, cushy office chair, plenty of lamps & lighting. There was a luggage rack that was made out of wood, so it served as a little bench for putting on your shoes too. The closet had plenty of hangers, an ironing board/iron, a soft robe (which I wish I had time to use), a safe. The bar area had a coffemaker with sugar, creamer, tea, full size mugs, tumblers, paper cups, fridge, microwave. The beds were firm & full of support. We always worry about beds being too soft & old, but these were very comfortable! The pillows were great! Maybe feather pillows, which I don't normally like, but they were dreamy to sleep on. Most of all, I LOVED the blanket. Thin, soft & warm

Water view, but freeway noise

Location: Tour the USS Potomac at Jack London Square, it was used by FDR and the guide we had was very informative.
We stayed here for three nights on a family trip to the bay area, the hotel is very nice one of the best Best Westerns we have stayed at. Breakfast was pretty good except for our last day when they did a poor job of keeping things stocked and there was only one choice of hot items (I don't think we should have to ask for butter and syrup). The hotel does have a pool, however it is located at the hotel next door which was not disclosed prior to our visit. Work out room was very nice and well stocked with towels and bottled water. This hotel is designed for the business traveler but works will for families also, the only complaint the kids had was that there were no kids channels on the TV.
