I had a good stay at this hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
It's like a small family owned hotel. No fancy staff, but they have what you need for a hotel. No restaurant onsite for dinner (you can order & deliver), but there is free breakfast. Nothing to complain. There is some noise, e.g. train, in the evening. But I guess it has nothing to do with the hotel. The service is good. I forgot my Amazon kindle in the hotel. Called 2 days later to ask. They are honest. I provided my CC information and asked them to ship it back to me. I got it within 3 days. So far they didn't even charge me anything yet.

Very cozy and comfortable

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
Excellent service, comfortable hotel near San Francisco. Manager was amazing, very accomodating and helpful. He kept the pool open for our grandchildren, after we arrived late; when we asked for extra towels, he gave us a stack of them!

Best value for the money

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
The Best Western Plus in Redwood City has a friendly staff, central location and clean rooms. The breakfast exceeded the average hotel breakfast menu with good waffles, scrambled eggs and sausage plus the ordinary fare. Security is a concern with outside access and its location on El Camino. It isn't elegant or sophisticated but it is a clean room and a value.

Good enough for the price, good location.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy, sub standard internet
I searched for quite some time for a hotel with a good location, good price and decent reviews. Best Western Inn lived up to all of these, although I can't say it was outstanding in any particular way. Just an average hotel at an average price. I liked that I could walk a few blocks and be in downtown Redwood City, which gave me a few choices of night spots and restaurants. The Stacks restaurant next door shares a parking lot with the hotel. The food there is very good, but parking can get crazy when it's open (only in morning and early afternoon). Two complaints: first of all, the internet connections, both ethernet and wifi, were slow and prone to dropping off for a minute or more. Second, the walls were paper thin. I could hear the guy in the room next door snoring at night.

This hotel was just right for our vacation.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
This hotel was just right for our vacation. We intended to do a lot of sightseeing, so paying exorbitant money for a fancy room that we wouldn’t do much more than sleep in was not reasonable. This hotel was a decent price, included basic amenities (including breakfast!) and we were pleased with our experience in the time we did spend in our room. The clerks at the desk were helpful and friendly once engaged, but only proactively greeted or offered help on occasion. We also appreciated the food selection in the area, and that we didn’t have to drive all the way back into the city to grab some dinner after a long day out. We had a really spectacular Mexican lunch at a little restaurant within walking distance. While next time we may take into consideration the distance from San Francisco, the experience we had in this hotel definitely helped make this one of our best trips.

Very Smelly

The room that I stayed in smelled real bad, so bad it made me sick to my stomach to the point of puking. I was not very pleased. It seems they haven't changed they're carpet or wallpaper since it went non-smoking. It was an older motel. The loby smelled like someone had just been smoking in it too.

On Business

The staff was very nice. Went out of their way to give us a good room. This place has a rather strange looking exterior but it is built around a lovely pool area. The rooms are roomy and well appointed. Enjoyed our stay.

Awesome!

This place was spotless, even the bathroom. Great neighborhood and stacks next door has great food. The pool was a pool. Breakfast is included, but just cereal, bagels and juice. The shower is awesome. Right off the freeway, don't worry you can't hear it. Just 20 miles south of downtown SF.

Very poor customer service - Non-Responsive Mgmt

On my first night at the hotel the heater did not work in my room. The hotel staff kindly changed my room the next day, but since then I have not been able to secure a discount for the inconvience. The manager has not been available and has not returned my calls.\n\nVery poor customer service - I had spoken to the manager about a discount while at the hotel, he said he would look into it and had plenty of opportunity to adjust the rate while I was there and never did.\n\nIgnoring the issue does not make it go away!
