The America Best Value is the last step before taking the plane at the airport. The hotel is just near the highway and there is the noise of the road. We hear too very well the people walking above in their room and the fridge is very noisy. A very bad soundproofing at all levels.

I have stayed at this lodging for some consecutive years for an annual Aug function. I have rated it on other feedback-requesting sites to be 3-4 stars. It has always been adequate to satisfactory. This year's visit and room was a major reversal and letdown.


Microwave was unused this trip.
There is a balcony overlooking the street (which could be categorized bad, if one cannot tolerate street noise).
The bathroom has, not a tiny window near the ceiling for venting moisture, but a counter-height bedroom-sized window. It has no screen. One can see outside and some of the buildings and the street to the north, as well as allow others to see in.


There is a mini-fridge. It is not the short-, but medium-height type. There is above average refrigeration room for a weekend stay.
Within the fridge is a small 3" height non-closing freezer.


Small pastries are no longer offered.
Cereal offered are 2, and are tasteless.

The lodging price/night increased from past years.
Additionally, reviewing my payment card status, I discovered management overcharged me, from previously specified and agreed-upon amount as set via booking agent Priceline.com.

Climate Control:
There is none, as found in other similar rooms I have previously stayed in at this lodging. (A close friend family traveling with me for the same function stayed in the room right across the hallway. It still has the hotel room climate control unit we were expecting and familiar with from this lodging. The family resided in the 2-Queen with Kitchenette layout room.)
A mini portable tower fan and a mini portable heater are provided.
The heater was insufficient.

The mirror was 1¼' wide. It is like a discount store hanging-style mirror cut to the height between the counter and ceiling. It is mounted on the wall over the sink counter as one would regularly expect, but also flush against the side wall to the corner. When brushing, flossing, shaving, etc., a right-handed guest has to lean to the right and twist one's torso to see one's reflection. A left-handed guest may keep the right arm by one's side and lean to the right a little bit.
The lighting is inadequate for when one is showering with the curtain closed.

Upon initial entry, the room smelled like someone had entered and cooked and stayed to eat curry.
After airing out the room successfully on Fri night-Sat morning, I left for the function.
Upon return, the room was cleaned, but the smell of someone returning to the room and cooking and then staying to eat curry returned.
It takes some hours to air out the room.
Upon departure, I left the balcony glass door and bathroom window open and turned on the weak bathroom ceiling fan to try to air out the room again for the next guest.


The room needs to be updated, as other rooms have years ago, to have a proper hotel room climate control unit.
The bathroom mirror needs to be much larger.
The bathroom needs better lighting.
Finally and most importantly, management needs to ascertain why this room has a returning smell.

This room should not be open for stay at this time.

Establishment is somewhat outdated but is perfect for us due to its nearness to our son who lives in Pacifica. Very basic at a good value for the area. Won't impress anyone but it does the job nicely.

Rooms are clean and nice. But the beds are hard and the pillows are flat. You can hear traffic from the 101 all night. It is close to the beach though and u get free wifi, a fridge and microwave. Also the breakfast is kinda weak...just cereal, a pastry, fruit and coffee. I guess I was expecting more for the price I paid.

We should stay on the hotel 2 days in the beginning of juli 2018. Wrong date when booking online, So I called Booking.com. Booking.com called then the hotel, but the hotel refused to move the date. But the hotel informed Booking.com, that we should only pay for 1 night. Never ever again this kind off missing service.
