During check in I requested to check out 1day early. I was told no problem, my travel agent even called the front desk to confirm the change, and I received an updated itinerary. Later that evening I was told I would still be charged for the cancelled night. The carpet was worn and torn, no toilet per holder, the toilet...

After reading the reviews I was skeptical. I even thought about canceling my reservation and finding another pace to stay. I am a business executive that needed a close place to the airport to get some work done after a full day of meetings. The room was spacious, well appointed, clean, had a full walk in closet, flat screen TV,...

We have to travel to San Mateo for my CPE, this hotel is quiet, free Wifi that actually works. The room is big and clean. The bed is great for a goodnight sleep. The price is great for what you get. Breakfast isn't great, but it is food. Stay on the second floor, since you can hear the overhead walking.

This place has a lot of potential. The rooms are off the street, so noise *should* be limited. Pros: Good location. Great water pressure in the shower. Cons: S-K-E-T-C-H-Y. NOT clean - hairs all over (not mine). Holes (burns) in the chair. Towels and sheets were dirty and/or stained. Phone, TV remote, light switches are disgusting. Carpet is stained all...

My wife and I were in SF for the Diva Half Marathon last weekend and I opted, based on travelocity reviews and a price about $30-$50 less than big name hotels chose to go with the Stone Villa Inn. Okay so this place is reminiscent of a dated motel ... you know on those shows on TV where the guy...

We always stayed at another hotel in front when we go to town, but how the price is more affordable, we decided to change. Bad choice!! They reformed bedrooms, bathroom, but beds too soft, pillow horrible and flat, hears all the steps from the upper room and the tv in the next room. The breakfast is very poor, do not...

Found this place online with intentions of only staying one night. I had such a great experience combined with the cool neighborhood that I called to stay another night. The rooms are clean and simple but with all of the amenities you need. WiFi is free as is parking. I'd highly recommend this spot

I had a terrible experience at this place! Do not stay here. I stayed overnight on 3/6/13. In the early hours of the morning, I was woken up by what sounded like construction going on in the room above me. When I looked at my watch it was just before 5:00 a.m.! I called the front desk to inform them...

I rarely pick non-franchised motel-type places because there is usually a reason why they don't have a franchise. This hotel however had a location close to the airport and their pictures looked great, but our one night stay was marred with multiple issues: lobby smelled strongly of exotic foods, check-in staff was impersonal and unfriendly, we were given a room...

1st start reading Bren S. “WARNING” posting on 3/16/13. I agree with her post 100%, I was with her. The SMPD Event was nice but the hotel a disaster. Here’s the additional information that was missed. They have a sign with an AAA Diamond Rating at the front desk. What happen to this place? Was this AAA sign real or...
