Check in was fine, the lady was friendly enough. Dragged all my stuff upstairs in a frenzy to use the bathroom. Got in my room, lifted up the toilet lid to a lot of urine and short dark hair on the toilet seat! Called down immediately for someone to come clean the room. The lady on the phone said house keeping would not be in until 7 pm (two hours from then). Did not offer any other solution. Said she'd have to call me back. A few minutes later she called and said I could move rooms and she would run a key up to me. Fifteen minutes later I was using the restroom in my new room. Questionable whether the room was cleaned or not, sheets changed? Who knows!

Great Hotel

Pros: Location was good, there was plenty of breakfast options across the street
Cons: Nothing, thought is was great and priced well
Location: Noah's Bagels, Jamba Juice, and Starbucks are right across the street, close to Fashion Island, and not to far from San Francisco
This was a lovely hotel, nice amenities, good décor, comfortable beds

Nice Hotel and Enjoyed Our Stay

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
This was a nice hotel that was close to downtown San Francisco but not in the middle of all the crowd. Our room was nice and comfortable. We especially liked the fire pit in the courtyard in the evening. I would recommend this hotel.

Very good hotel

Very good hotel. No charge for parking. The clerk was very friendly. At first I thought I was going to hear airplane noise. Very quiet.

Great value!

This hotel isn't fancy, but for providing a nice, clean room in a very central location to the Bay Area, its great! The room was clean and big, with a desk and small sitting area. The bathroom was clean and functional. The hotel is located just south of San Francisco airport, making it roughly half-way between San Francisco and San Jose. We had no trouble getting to sites in either direction, and the staff was happy to provide directions and maps. Definitely a good value and place to explore the Bay Area from.

great hotel!

Our stay in this hotel was phenomenal. For the reasonable price, we didn't expect much and were extremely impressed with the hotel. The beds are so comfortable with a feather down blanket and very nice interior design. The hotel was very clean and the staff was courteous. We went windsurfing in the area and the hotel was a great location to stay to travel to San Fran and San Jose within a short distance to each. Highly recommend the hotel!
