“Horrible Hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

My company booked me a room here, i canceled upon entering the room, I dont know why best western would allow them the franchise, mold in bathrooms, sheets seem reused, looks nice from the outside, but dont judge a book by its cover...

Room Tip: dont rent here, plenty of other better hotels in the area... dont trust the name,

Not all stays are in beautiful places. Sometimes you just need a clean, comfortable room that doesn't blow out the budget. This place is nondescript, but there is a nice pool. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast (I know they say on the web it is continental, but here they also serve what looks like Smart & Final scrambled eggs and sausage) is decent--the coffee good. And then you are back on the road again.

When we arrived there was no one at the desk, there was a piece of paper that said "Back in 5". Room was clean. Pillows were small and too mushy. There were two light bulbs burned out. There was no guest binder in room to detail when continental breakfast was served, area attractions, etc.

great hotel! Very clean and neat. Great service and breakfast. It was just noisy because of loud commuter train across the street. specifically enjoyed certain room that has adjoining basins by the bathroom. The beds are high quality and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful at all times.

In this area the hotels are expensive. My husband had a medical appointment in Atherton so we drove up the day before. The lady that checked us in was very friendly and nice. She helped us locate a restaurant for dinner. This hotel is two story and we stayed in room 216. It was a CLEAN comfortable room with a king size bed, couch, mini refrigerator and microwave. Free parking. Plus, we were given two bottles of water and a granola bar when we checked in. The courtyard is fenced with a pool. No elevator but one flight of stairs is no big deal. We were quite happy with are stay and we would stay again. There was a free continental breakfast but we went next door to Stacks for breakfast.

Room Tip: Request a first floor room if stairs are hard to manage.

The exterior of the hotel seems dated and the carpet in the second floor hallway appeared well worn. I was a little concerned before I saw the room. However, the rooms were in excellent shape, as good as I've come to expect at all the Best Westerns.

First impression was depressing pulling up. There is a blacked out section that is actually scary and something must be going on downstairs because there were no first floor rooms available nor elevator, which the desk attendant quickly apologized for. I had to make 2 trips upstairs with luggage and business luggage. I was grateful for the working amenities i.e. nice TV full channels for the news & weather (it was our first real storms), microwave, and a frig. It's really noisy make sure to ask for a room as far off the street and train tracks as possible. The open areas feel really unsafe. Surprised this is under the Best Western properties. Probably the least appealing of all BW's I've stayed at. I expected more from a BW. Like you know what your getting - NOT.
