Trying to find hotels on the SF peninsula were expensive so I stayed across the bay. The price was great and the hotel was very clean and quiet. It was close to several amenities. I was able to jog as well without any worries for safety. This was a nice little find and saved me lots of money.

The air conditioner was broken in our room, but the staff was very quick and helpful in getting us moved and it was only to one room away. Typical HEI, next to a mall, so convenient to many restaurants and a movie theater. Hot tub was nice, but the outdoor pool was freezing. It is located in a courtyard, so...

Stayed here for 1 night while I was in Fremont on business. Clean hotel with a nice selection of breakfast in the morning (cereal, cinnamon rolls). They will even give you a to-go box if you don't have time to eat breakfast. Would recommend to anyone.
