Residence Inn San Francisco Airport/San Mateo
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in San Mateo
Reviewed 16 March 2014

This hotel is located about 10 minutes south of San Francisco airport, in sort of a industrial park/wooded setting. Our room was next to a highway but we never heard any noise. The staff was excellent and very friendly and suggested a great place to eat (BJ's bar and grill). The hotel has a OK free breakfast in the morning. I will be staying here the next time I visit the San Francisco are!..Great job staff..keep it up!!

Room Tip: We had a room next to a highway and it was quiet, so I think all room locations are good.

Located about 10 minutes South of SFO next to CA92 at the west end of the San Mateo Bridge. Convenient on/off highway location without being on the highway. Configured like a town home cluster with walkways, ivy and plantings throughout. Room has a nice small kitchen with breakfast bar. Living room has a TV, work desk and fireplace. WiFi worked well and free breakfast was good with both hot and cold dishes. San Mateo and Burlingame have some excellent restaurants and the hotel is also a few minutes from shopping and a Mall. I stayed here in the 1990's and it has been upgraded nicely since then. We stayed here on New Year's Eve and it was nicely quite!

We have several relatives in the Bay Area so this serves as a central location for us when we are staying over south of San Francisco. At first, it seems difficult to find as it is surrounded by apartments and freeway overpasses and approaches but it turns out, once you figure out the location, that it is quite close to the west and east bound ramps to the freeway to the East Bay and to cities on the west side like San Mateo and San Francisco. The hotel is actually located in Foster City and not directly in San Mateo, but it is not far from many restaurants and shopping centers.

Our downstairs room seemed to have a bit more noise than the upstairs units we usually reserve, but it was tolerable and not prolonged. The front desk staff was very helpful and the staff taking care of the breakfast buffet were also very good. The room was very clean and everything from the television to the internet worked well.

We have also stayed at the Courtyard, about a mile further into Foster City, but the Res Inn is much more practical if you need the refrigerator and stove. This appears to be one of the older model Residence Inns which has been upgraded in the interior and it looked just fine.

If you stay here, make sure you have a good street map of Foster City/San Mateo or program your GPS to locate the hotel and sites you wish to visit. It will come in very handy late in the evening or when you are tied up in rush hour traffic when all the tech-com businesses close down for the day.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms may be a bit quieter, but we had no serious sound problems in the first floor unit.

Pretty good location and close to good dining locations. The property is comfortable, secure and very clean but slightly dated and can be noisy if on a lower floor. Overall a pretty good experience. I normally stay at this property when located near this site.

Nice and friendly hotel with plenty of complementary parking.
Good internet coverage is also complementary.
We even use the heated pool in December - it's awesome!


Several shopping destinations nearby as well as our favourite Fish Market restaurant.

My experience with this property has been quite consistent for my trips over the years.
The staff is very helpful and property is maintained very well.

They can improve their breakfast by changing the menu, else it gets very monotonous.

Overall it is a nice place to stay!

I stayed here for a training workshop. I checked in at night. The night manager was very friendly and recognized that I'm an elite member. She gave me a top floor suite on the corner which was quiet where the bedroom is. There are local menus where you can order from for dinner so I did! I had a chicken flat bread that was huge but was very good! In the morning they have breakfast just behind the lobby. Overall I would stay here again!
