Reviewed 11 October 2013

I know it is cheap (£50 for a night) but I just hate hotels where you don't really want to let your skin touch the sheets on the bed.
I don't know what it was - everything just felt dirty, including the shower.
The room had no windows!
It was fully booked so is clearly popular.

As I was checking in a woamn came to the desk with a handful of room keys saying that she couldn't get in. The woman behind the desk asked if she was paying tonight and she said no - not sure what that was all about!

Location is perfect for catching an early morning flight from SFO.

This is a small hotel (23 rooms or so) located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area that is run by very friendly people. In addition to being centrally located (close to the San Francisco Airport), each room has a Color TV (with HBO), an air conditioned/heating unit, fridge and bathroom, nice beds, and accompanying furniture.

The staff and owner are both friendly and helpful.

Whenever I need a place to stay in the area, The Ritz is my destination.

If you need a place to stay near the airport, because of an early flight or getting in late, the wife and I would definitely recommend The Ritz (not that it's ritzy). As most reviewers have noted, it is clean, the price is a fraction of nearby equivalent places, our bed was comfortable, it was quiet, freshly painted, the bathroom was functional and there was hot water in the shower with good pressure (I see none of this satisfied our reviewer from New York. Feh...). We even walked to the very good barbecue place late at night, a couple blocks up, stopped for beers, and brought it all back for a dandy in-room feast. No problems, no one bothered us. If you have $150 or more to spend for a night, I pat you on the back and suggest you look elsewhere. The rest of you 99 percenters, enjoy the Ritz.

Our flight got in very late, and the manager kept our room for us, though he appreciated being informed (they were full that night and could have given the room to someone else).

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room.

The rooms are anywhere from 2 star to 5. Depends on the mood of the front desk when you check in. The maids are efficient and thorough,but dont talk to them,they will ask almost demand a TIP. The area is okay. The parking is very limited. Dont bring your Brand new vehicle here, it might get scratched. The local area has some undesirables nearby.

Room Tip: How you dress when you arrive, will determine what room you get

Stayed here as part of a roadtrip, and was very happy with our room.
It is very clean, spacious, Peter and his wife at the reception were very kind and helpful with whatever we asked.
The bed was VERY comfortable, and there is a fridge and a micro in the room.
It is close enough to the Bart (the local train) and you can go to San Franciso with that.
There are restaurants and other services nearby.
Also it's not too far from the SFO airport, so you don't have to travel hours after the flight.
I would recommend this place over the nearby overpriced accomodations, and definitely will stay in the future.

Room Tip: Clean, safe, budget, basic

Overall, we were happy with our accomodations. Rooms were certainly not luxurious, but we didn't expect that with the price we paid. The rooms were clean and we had a bed & shower, so we were good. The hotel manager even helped us with finding a taxi when we weren't expecting to need one - and had them hurry in order to get us to a tour site as quick as possible.

Room Tip: No elevators, so if you get a 2nd floor, you have to carry everything up steps!!
