When all the Silicon Valley hotels were full, I ended up here for a couple of nights at the last minute, still paying $200/nt+ ... The room felt dingy and old... WiFi was completely garbage and unusable. Overall, I felt like I was staying in a $39 roadside motel. The room was dusty and dirty.. I was just so relieved...

Friendly and helpful staff. They were so helpful that I feel bad I can't write much else good about the hotel. The room furniture, kitchen attachments, bathroom things show a lot of wear and tear and need a major renovation. The room was small with no work desk. The iron pad had some stains on those and they took some...

I travel a lot to this area on business. I found this to be one of the hotels I liked the least. I typically stay a couple of weeks at a time and I found this hotel a little lacking. The price was pretty reasonable, but the service was unacceptable. The room was clean and smelled Ok. The bed was...

I got a job nearby and for one year and 3 months this hotel was my home. If you are here to stay, but not for years, then this is more convenient than to rent an apartment, especially since I was single away from home. (My husband works in San Diego). You don't have to buy furniture and other things...

I booked this place for 3 nights using booking.com and they put me in a smoking room (yes you can still find smoking rooms in California) pretending that I asked for it when using booking.com. I accepted as I was too tired to fight (10 hours flight from France). After 1 awful night, I told them I could not stay...

The bed was clean but everywhere else was dirty. I would go to another hotel if I could find an available one in the area. All the hotels were booked up due to a very big conference in San Francisco. I purchased cleaning supplies myself and cleaned the areas I would be using. The toilet seat was so old that...

check in was smooth. House keeping was done on time and nicely.Any complaint was promptly attended. Even helped to take emergency printouts ( of course few pages).Last minute request to extend my stay was honored. Special thanks to Ilsen and Ruby. This review is for my stay during 4-Aug till 18-sep.

This place is disgusting. I had no idea when I booked that it would be so bad. It's so disgustingly smelly that I'm keeping my clothes zipped up in my suitcase to avoid them absorbing the reek of the place. Piles of furry dust all over the place, so bad that I ACTUALLY WROTE MY NAME IN THE DUST. Smears...

The room was clean, but small for a suite. The mattress squeaked whenever you moved. You had to call for what ever cooking utensils you needed, but they brought them right away. The breakfast was not worth getting, just apples, coffee and cheap granola bars. I had a handicap room and the bathroom was large with a walk in shower...

Booked two nights here . The day before we traveled. It was a last minute decision I grabbed the first hotel with a reasonable price. What a big mistake. Front desk lady was ignorant. She knew nothing about the job. The room was very nasty. Smelled bad . Dirty, stains every where. Like a fool we were tired so we...
