Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2013

This hotel is a great place to stay with any sports team because of their large and spacious rooms. The property manager was great to work with when booking rooms for 2 different soccer teams and helped accommodate all of the special requests. I definitely would stay at this hotel again.

The location was very convenient for my purposes. It was an easy drive from SFO International Airport. The king bed suite was clean and spacious, more than enough room had my family of 4 been traveling with me. Omar, the manager, was so very helpful, attentive and gracious after I stupidly locked myself out of my room. He and a maintenance worker also worked quickly to unclog the sinks in my room and in an adjoining one.

The complimentary breakfast was simple and convenient; hotel room also had a coffeemaker, mini fridge and microwave.

Overall, it was a very well-kept hotel in a good location, with excellent service with a smile.

This one of the cleanest hotels we have stayed in. Has a convenience area that sells different food items including microwaveable meals , nice touch. It has a hot tub but it was out of order during our stay. The only real problem I had that there were no room darkening curtains in our room , 403 , which is on the front of the building to block out the afternoon sun and the spotlights shining on the building. The breakfast was very good.

My husband and I went on a road trip from Seattle was to Disneyland and back up. We stopped at this hotel because we wanted to be near San Francisco without having to stay in the city. We called to make reservations three hours before our arrival and there was availability. The women on the phone I believe her name was chandrea or something like that was wonderful and when we walked in a couple hours later she remembered our conversation over the phone.

She was professional attentive and very nice! She gave us a brief idea of the area, restaurants, Bart and surrounding cities. The hotel was clean, VERY CLEAN! rooms were big and comfortable, all staff members were professional and really cared about our comfortability and stay.

The breakfast in the morning was great! Not like other hotels where breakfast is dinky. We had our choice of eggs, sausage , donuts, bagels, waffles, yogurt, cereal, oj, apple juice, coffee. The breakfast area was clean and neat.

We stayed for two nights and for only 140 a night it was WONDERFUL! I would highly recommend!!!!! The only downfall is that they have no pool BUT a 24 hr gym and everything else made it worth it! I was stay again!

My wife and I stayed here for 7 weeks during and after my son's hospitalization in December. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but what sets this place apart is the staff, all of whom were wonderfully courteous, attentive and helpful.

I especially want to acknowledge Front Desk Manager Omar Ansari, who helped us enormously during a very difficult time. Omar is really the person who manages the whole deal at this location, and he is amazing. Omar treats every staff person with respect and cordiality yet he demands a high level of job performance, which he gets in return from everyone. Most importantly, he treats every guest like he would a guest in his own home, and we appreciated it.

We went back to visit our son again last month for 3 weeks, and even though he lives in Oakland, we came back to this Comfort Suites, just because of Omar.

Thanks, Omar. Hope to see you and the rest of your great staff again soon.

The manager and all of the staff were extremely helpful in arranging for a group a rooms for the weekend of my son's wedding. There were singles, couples, and families and all found the rooms very comfortable and the breakfasts very good. Even my pickiest guests were pleased with the accommodations. I appreciated the staff's help in the set up as well as their service the day of the guests' arrival.

Our team from Hawaii of Na Keiki O Ke Akua hula ministry were so blessed spending our time at this hotel! The room was clean, spacious, and so comfortable! It was a blessing to have breakfast EVERY morning! The staff were even more of a blessing. They were so accommodating and people-friendly! In fact they displayed the "Aloha" Spirit and they don't live in Hawaii! I highly recommend you consider booking your hotel with Comfort Suites; their name "comfort" says it all! To the staff of Comfort Suites.........from our hearts to your hearts, mahalo nui loa for "serving" and "blessing" us throughout our stay...........and "ALOHA"!
