This is a well located and relatively cheap hotel, but it has ups and downs.
The rooms are a good size and the beds comfy. A desk is provided. There are plenty of power points, and also some phone/usb charging points which is a nice touch.
The bathroom is perfectly functional and in good condition (there's no bath, only a shower - but that's fine for me).
The staff are nice. Checkin was efficient.
The fitness room is basic but clean and functional.
The free wifi worked fine for me, no issues and I was able to VPN back to our UK office fine.
There's plenty of parking.
The inroom fridge/microwave are a nice touch.
Keurig coffee machine is in the room (and tea is also provided).
The breakfast buffet is 'okay'. The hot choice is not great - as another reviewer commented, the 'scrambled eggs' are made from powder and not at all appetising. You can at least get cereal and a good cup of tea.
No crockery or cutlery is provided in the rooms, making the microwave less useful!
The lovely picture of a bowl of cut fruit labelled 'complimentary breakfast' on the hotel's website, unfortunately, a complete lie. The closest you get is some canned peach slices in syrup and whole bananas/oranges. This was the biggest disappointment for me and I dropped my rating by one point because of it.
The lift is very slow and badly in need of an upgrade, and unfortunately you essentially have to use the lift as the only set of stairs I found was not accessible from the ground floor.
The public transport in the area is pretty poor (like much of America), so you'll need a car or to make heavy use of uber/lyft. (An uber from SFO airport is around 45 USD.)
The in-room air conditioning is unfortunately rather on the noisy side.
You can hear the people in the rooms above you walking about sometimes.
