Superb staff
Great service clean room and bathroom and the bed was super comfy. I had to stay an additional night unexpectedly and the manager gave me the same rate that I got the first 2 nights for through this site. Only negative is that it’son the approach path for SFO and so they might inquire with the airport if there are funds available to remediate the acoustics Otherwise I’ll still return to this hotel Thank you to all of the staff

A nice place
Fine. Small squeak from heater. We suggested graphite powder on the belt. Sounded like a baby screamed when it stopped.

The hotel is lovely and clearly they’ve done some updating. Beautiful patio area and room was very quiet. My only complaint was the noisy heating unit.

San Francisco trip
Not a bad place to stay if going to visit San Fran. Stayed here and it was updated but I still get motel 6 vibes . All in all though it was clean and alright. The outside is very nice.

Exceptional 10.0
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for work. It was very clean and accommodating for a business trip stay. It’s very close to all things. Beyond everything I am so grateful to Ben, the general manager, that was beyond understanding in my need for work space and allowed me to remain and finish my work in my room on my departure day. It was the biggest help since no sit-down coffee shops are open due to COVID. The staff was incredibly nice and understanding anytime I approached the desk with a question. Looking forward to staying at this hotel for all future work trips into town.

Good 6.0
The fire pit as depicted in their pictures was the selling point, and why it was the main part of all their pictures. The rooms have been repainted and had been furniture, but it is just and old motel six type building with some lipstick and rouge. The old wall ac/ heater units have been dressed up with a lattice type cover that just creeks all night if your have the heater on due to the plastic heating up and expanding/contracting My stay was during covid... so expecting a sanitary room is a given, but then opening a drawer and finding a previous guests bra in it..... tells me that these rooms weren’t throughly cleaned
