I have been frequently visiting redwood shores for business and prefer to stay in this hotel. Very nice hotel and service. From front desk staff Rema has been very supportive. She very intelligently handled my queries and I booked this hotel for coming 2 weeks in advance.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which suited our family of 5 very well. The staff was very accommodating & friendly. Pleasantly surprised by the restaurant. We save well over $100 per night by staying here vs. San Francisco. It was a 35 minute drive in traffic to Pier 39 which we really didn't mind. I would have given this hotel 5 stars if the wifi & cable wasn't so terrible. The hotel doesn't have a pool but seeing the area tends to be usually chilly it didn't matter much to us. Although an indoor would have been wonderful.

We recently utilized the Holiday Inn San Mateo as the base of operations for a family reunion. The sales manager, Mr. Ray Gonzalez, did an excellent job of coordinating during the months leading up to the event. I was able to easily arrange 10+ rooms and multiple group meals prior to arriving in the Bay Area. The rooms were in outstanding condition, and the dining facilities exceeded expectations. I highly recommend this facility to anybody planning a group event.

Room Tip: The Presidential Suite on the 4th floor provides ample room to host a group of 20+.

We ended up here after deciding not to stay where our original reservation was locate (The comfort inn.) Its about 100 yards past the comfort inn but a world of difference. It cost us $36 more to move over here but was worth every penny! The staff is nice and helpful, the rooms are clean and roomy, the atmosphere in general is good. I would stay here again. (Don't go the cheap route and stay next door, if you are considering it read my post and look at the pics)

the room was very clean and spacious. The air conditioner unit/heater was not as precise in controlling the temperature as I have experienced in other hotels but was good once I figured it out. There is no bellman service to watch your bags securely but the front desk and housekeeping staff watched our bags for the day while we checked out the city without any problems. We appreciate them doing that for us; it saved us having to pay for storage at the airport or another hotel night but be aware that it is not as secure as a real bell service for storage of bags. The free shuttle to the airport was helpful and the drivers were courteous and flexible.
