The proximity to the airport is great, and the location of the hotel overall is convenient for a lot of those traveling for business. The rooms are large. Staying on the first floor is incredibly noisy. Good water pressure. Limited hours for the "bistro". The room's furnishing are not pleasing but that doesn't matter to everyone (just me). Free wifi...

We stayed here because my son lives close by. The hotel is located In a business district that may be busier during the week. It was very quiet, close enough to SFO and restaurants. We had an issue with our next door neighbors and the hotel took care of us and moved our room.

Stayed here one night for an overnight quick volleyball tournament at the San Mateo Events Center. Super clean. Super quiet. Super safe. Literally 90 feet from a Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Noah's Bagels, and a Pieology. There in house lounge/restaurant looked good and reasonably priced but we weren't in the mood for that. The fitness center is small but clean. Dumbbells...

My daughter and I stayed here over the weekend when she had a dance competition in the San Mateo area. The hotel itself is located in a fantastic area. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and even some that are only 5 minutes away by car. The staff seemed friendly enough but we really didn't interact with them much, other...

Stayed here a week for work recently & had an amazing stay. My single king room was large, clean and the bed comfortable. It had a nice sized TV and channel line up, small fridge, safe in closet & a nice sized bathroom. The free wifi was dismal, but the paid wifi was extremely fast and reliable. There was a...

We stay at this hotel on our visits back home (living overseas now). Location is convenient with Jamba juice, Noah bagel close by and easy access to Rte 92 and 101. Most recently, they jacked up rates due to a conference in SF, which is annoying. Somehow $400+ per night for these rooms WITHOUT any breakfast or other amenities (shuttle...

We have stayed here numerous times and the experience has always been pleasant. The front desk staff is amazing and makes you feel valued from check-in to check-out. The rooms have been remodeled and they are very nice and quite serene. Marriott has merged with Starwood so the prices seem to have gone up.

Minimal on the extras. Old rooms but clean and serviced. Nice lobby. No breakfast included. Ground level hotel. At about 200$ for a night it was relatively expensive for the value. Not sure of the alternatives but would prefer other.
