Located about 10 miles south of SFO airport and firmly mid-Peninsula, this hotel is about halfway to everything in the Bay Area, although that can still mean long rides in traffic. It's also a 20-minute walk to the Caltrain station and several restaurants.
Depending on your preferences/needs, ESA Belmont has both pet- and smoker-friendly rooms. It is also priced less than many of its competitors and is a reasonable way to save some money in a very expensive area. WiFi, parking, and a very minimal snack for breakfast are included. We did not buy the WiFi upgrade as the normal creaked along at 3 Mbps. Housekeeping is once per week, although you can get as many towels and toiletries at the front desk as needed (and pay extra for daily housekeeping if you require it).
While I expected our room to smell like cigarettes (it was the last room available), it actually had this funk like smelly feet that even Febreze could not dispel! There was no comfortable public area in which to sit and work and escape the smell either. Too bad, because I've never before written a hotel review fussing about an odor! Another guest said she'd bought Febreze too.
We had neither a pot nor a pan in the kitchen, and I hope the housekeeper was just too short to see the sticky mess all inside the kitchen cabinet (and no paper towels with which to clean up). So the kitchen was a waste except for the fridge and microwave.
Ending on a positive note, I must say Victor at the front desk was amiable and helpful over a several-day stay.
