Great clean room for a great price. The room had a great bathroom!

Free parking, friendly, all restaurant around never have to travel long distant to eat

The King room has a small comforting office space.

The walls are paper thin. This place is an absolute dump and was some of the worst money spent on a “cheap” hotel. Don’t make the same mistake we did

Nothing special. It felt kind of run down, but just clean enough and maintained enough to be passable. Bedding looked ok, but the pillows were lumpy and the comforter was thin.

Nice pictures on the wall - is a plus. Red color of the bed accent - is a plus. Not working toilet - is a minus. The room service half done - is a minus. The "free breakfast", which is a frozen egg and mini-donuts, mini-apple and a yogurt - is a huge minus, because it misleads the customers. Absence of the outside of the building pictures - is a minus - you would see right away that it is a simple 2-story motel, which has long way to go to become a Hotel.

Loved the uniqueness of this cozy little hotel. The staff was ESPECIALLY FRIENDLY, welcoming and helpful. (Thank you Josh!) We took a short drive back to the quaint "downtown" where many lovely dining options awaited. The bathroom and towels were great. Loved the black, red and white. Close to SFO. Not a "high-end" hotel, but that's not what we wanted. Perfectly comfortable. Good coffee in the lobby. I recommend it very much!

Great location, lovely staff, appreciate the comfortable room and sleep.

It seemed more like a motel than a hotel but I liked it anyway. The only thing I did not like was the train noice

Quiet. Comfortable bed. Economical. Only negative was lack of business center

We are very happy with our stay. Friendly front desk. Cute, cozy and up-to-date room. Love our beds!! Very comfortable. Definitely stay here again our next trip in the area.

Great customer service, modern design, tablet in the room, overall great service. Highly recommended. These people really care about their guest experience.

Perfect except heater wasn't working as expected and not enough blankets on the bed for that.

Nice hotel and the price was right. A little noisy and the shades can't be drawn all the way so outside light comes through. Very clean and obviously just remodeled. The minor negatives wouldn't keep me from returning.
