My fiance and I were first given a room that, when we entered, realized had not been cleaned since the last couple stayed there, because the linens were pulled off the bed and the toiletries in the bathroom were all used, but when we went back to the front desk to complain, he immediately gave us a new, bigger room with two beds (he had nothing else ready at the time).
Our new room was clean and really nice. We loved the decor, it looked like a really nice apartment. The beds were insanely comfy and plush and the leather armchair was a nice touch. The bathroom was clean and nice. My only complaint was that the refrigerator wasn't working when we got there, but then we realized some dolt had unplugged it to plug in the TV so we just readjusted that and we were fine (we found another outlet for the TV so were able to still use it).
There's free parking, the hotel is within walking distance to a bunch of really great Chinese restaurants, a mall, and a Trader Joe's. And the drive to Half Moon Bay took less than 30 minutes, although watch out on weekends! - traffic gets intense and you can get stuck for closer to an hour. The breakfast was the biggest letdown - dry cereals, no hot water for tea, some bagels (no wheat) and no fruit or eggs. We were hoping for a banana at least, but that's why it's so nice to have a Trader Joe's nearby!
For the price, these are small complaints. And we really just wanted a nice place to rest our heads and get some much-needed shuteye. For that, this place is top notch. We'd definitely stay again.
