I recently stayed at this hotel on business and found the hotel had a few issues but none that would prevent me from staying at it again. In an effort to keep my review short I will just simply list the plus and minus of the property.
Plus: free breakfast, free light dinner, free high speed internet, free internet service in the lobby if you do not have a computer. Free coffee is always availble. Complimentary news paper (US Today and San Francisoco paper). Fruit was always available in the lobby with no extra charge. Complimentary shuttle service from 8-8. Free pick up from the San Francisco airport. The room as a stove, large refrigerator, sink, microware and dishwasher. The room is set up like a suite but there is no privacy between the living room and bedroom. The room is set up more like a studio with a sleeper sofa. Oh, did I say free wine and beer in the evening.
Minuses: I would not recommend this property for a single female that is vacationing or traveling alone. There were just way too may bushes around the property that anyone can hide in. Housekeeping sometimes will ignore the magnetic sign that says "no service" that you can place on the outside of the door. I would recommend that you call the front desk or housekeeping to let them know directly that you do not want houskeeping service that day. This hotel is too far away from San Francisco if you plan on taking public transportation.
Other than what I listed above, my stay was very pleasant. This was one of the best Residence Inn's I have stayed at. The breakfast was outstanding and the keg of beer hit the spot the day they prepared hot wings for the light snack in the evening.
