Place conveniently right off 92. Depending on traffic within 30-45 min from Golden Gate Bridge, pier 39, and other wonderful sights. Walking distance to target (10-15 min.) Pool is on the small side. Kids still loved it thou. Very comfortable beds. Would most definitely stay here again when in the area again.

Clean room, pleasant staff, great breakfast. Only small problem was having to rearrange the furniture in order to open up the fold-out bed.

Great stay. Already booked another stay there. Staff is wonderful, rooms are comfortable. home comfortable. You do have to pay for overnight parking but very reasonable $10, most hotels in area that charge ask for $25+, esp near the airport .

Housekeeping left something to be desired. Courtesy shampoos, etc were not left on one day, an unplugged lamp was not fixed and we had to move a heavy sofa bed/couch and do it ourselves (we are in our 70's!), a clean saucepan was placed in the dishwasher...nothing else in there...and we couldn't find it for a day. There seemed to be no pride in making the room comfortable for us....at $250+ a night this is not acceptable.

Good stay with family and friends. Stayed here for s wedding.

We have stayed at this hotel 2 now and each time is amazing. The only this that sticks to my mind that I did not really like was that the room smelled like curry. When my partner went in to check us in he was informed that there was a long term resident who was staying in that place and had a light smell. When we walked in, it was like a curry bomb hit your nose and even with the windows open and the air fresheners could not take the smell away. But besides that the place, staff was great.

I will stay here again if in the area, the price was very good considering our other option which was to stay in SF. Ok, outside is a bit old looking but I have to say we were pleasantly surprised on the size of the room, mini-apartment size, with full kitchen but small..separate dressing / bathroom area from the bed area. Nice (but small) flat screen TV and small coach. Nice change from the single 4 wall hotel room you typically get at this price range or higher. Bathroom was very clean and shower good water pressure / hot temperature. Parking was close to the room. Price / value was pretty high considering the very nice free breakfast & free wifi. Downside, as mentioned a bit dated looking, it could use some new paint on the outside door frames which look a bit moldy. Location was perfect for us..1/2 between our destinations of San Fran and Half Moon Bay...easy access to the highway and stores.

very comfortable, clean, spacious and friendly staff. I was in town for a conference, one evening, and it was ideal. I asked and received a room that was situated furthest away from the freeway as I like to have windows open at night and a good amount of quiet. If you are EMF sensitive, it would be worth noting that the property is situated in close proximity to high tension power lines. To some that matters while others not so, just thought I'd mention. Whole Foods Market is within 7 to 10 ten minutes away.

We were able to do an early check in. The staff was very helpful with everything. Breakfast area was clean and well stocked. Would recommend this hotel to everyone

This was an airport hotel with shuttle service. When I called upon arrival I was informed that they did not have shuttle service. When I arrived the shuttle bus was sitting in the parking lot. I am not sure if they use it anymore. An airport Hotel requires a shuttle service.

The kitchen and extra space were very helpful for taking care of the baby and eating in while he was a asleep. Staff good about providing a pack'n'play. Breakfast decent.

The Residence Inn in San Mateo is so comfortable and convenient. The rooms are lovely, the staff is so friendly, and it is in a great location. They serve a wonderful breakfast too. I highly recommend it.

Before having a family, I used to stay at 2 star hotels trying get the cheapest hotel for myself. But with a wife and daughter, I pay more attention to reviews and how safe the hotel is. I read several reviews on hotels near San Francisco. I noticed I had to get something 3 stars and above. I chose the Residence Inn. Great quiet spot for the family. It had the amenities we wanted. Free wifi, breakfast, and parking. And an extra that we didn't need but appreciated was the full kitchen. Overall, a very good experience and will go there again.

We stayed for 1 night with our two children. The pull out was perfect for the kids. The kitchen has everything we needed to make dinner. Lots of parking. Staff was extremely friendly. Housekeeper neatly arranged our kids stuff animals on the pull out. A great surprise for the kids, which made our day. Highly recommend.

First time at Residence Inn by Marriott at San Mateo, room super clean, kitchen included, will stay again soon, great price...

I like more than a room. Residence Inn is that and more. Friendly, efficient staff, apt style complex with nothing higher than 2 stories. Quick access to highways 92 and 101. Book far enough in advance excellent rates. Stay here again in a heart beat!

Spacious room . Very useful kitchen. Continent parking in front of house. It is like home.

Thank you for your review! We are reviewing ways to mitigate the odor problem caused by our long term guests. We apologize and appreciate that you stayed despite the odor. We'll continue to work hard and hopefully we'll find a way to eliminate the curry smells.
