The room and bathroom were neat, clean, and looked just like the photos posted by the hotel. It had obviously been recently renovated and I liked the style they went with. The bed was big and comfortable, the towels were soft and fluffy, the wifi was fast, and the TV, cable, and remote worked as one would expect. Both of...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 November 2016

We stayed here for three nights recently. This is a small (maybe 15 rooms) motel on a busy street. Recently it was completely refurbished. All new floors, walls, plumbing, and furnishings. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable, and the towels were fluffy. The staff was friendly (we had little contact with them). They provide a 'box breakfast'...

Clean, cozy, an excellent recent renovation of an older building. Hotel staff was very friendly. We stayed on the ground floor, and there was some noise (not much) from the surrounding rooms and quite a bit throughout the night from the adjoining parking lot and nearby highway. Nice and well-priced for a short stay; just bring earplugs.

The room was comfortable and had a decent sized conference room where I could do some work do with some coworkers. The hotel stays relatively quiet with easy parking and walking distance from Caltrain. Ricardo, the main front desk person was absolutely wonderful.

Hotel is an old building that has been renovated. Room are nice, but small. Bed was very comfortable. A lot of train noise. Hotel advertised 70 Premium TV channels, which I assumed would be HD. They were SD which was disappointing. You have HD TV's, why not provide HD signals, especially in this day and age.

Awesome price for a great room. Definitely coming back. Risk was awesome and made sure I had breakfast to go (hard boiled egg/Greek yogurt, donut holes, orange). Sweetness! Check out The Office for grub and a good beer.
