Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Great staff, comfortable room, convenient to airport. Very poor choices in walkable dining and entertainment, but fine if you have a car or just crashing before/after your flight.

Good - short distance from SFO airport, free WiFi, complimentary breakfast (make yourself hot waffle), clean room & good beds, fridge, microwave....etc

Bad - bit pricey for 2 star motel (we paid $149/night), tiny underground parking space

Ugly - open your window curtain only if you want see what your next door neighbor is eating for dinner

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor rooms facing the main road (El Camino Real), unless you are curious to see what...

Not the best but it serves it purpose. A/C unit had to be replaced after arrival. Walls are paper thin. The room space is average. It comes with a fridge & microwave. Convenient to many restaurants & the Tanforan mall for shopping. Parking is very limited & tight. Most times the driver have to back out to allow the passengers to get into the car. Hotel does provided shuttle services & free wifi.

I was very surprised since my last stay at this motel. From Christmas time to the recent visit the room rates were 50% higher than seven months ago. I have noticed that travel and booking guides reflect rates much different than are actually charged. I remember that AAA used to reflect seasonal variations in rates. In the last few years their rates are useless.
