    We stayed here two consecutive nights (see my other review).

    Very good

    We liked it here, the hotel staff were friendly, the room was clean and the room facilities were good. There was a small fitness room just along the corridor from our room and there was a small pool on the premises although at the time of our visit it was being used for a private function so we didn't get chance to use it.

    Our room has a connecting door to the adjacent room, unfortunately the 'guest' in this room snored like a wild warthog for most of the night! This obviously wasn't the hotels fault directly, but the fact the volume of the snoring was like being in the same room spoilt an otherwise problem free stay. There was some traffic noise from the road that runs past the front of the hotel.

    Booked.net's rate was far better than any other source. Hotel is conveniently located on the SF peninsula. Helpful staff, very comfortable room with nice touches. Easy chair and ottoman, desk with cute compartments holding candies, office things, even a tension relieving (or provoking) yo-yo. Would gladly stay here again.

    Superb

    Quiet, friendly atmosphere, with staff who were available and willing to help our with any request. Room size was good, beds were comfortable. Nice breakfast with varied items, including hot itiems - could have had a waffle iron to make your own waffles. Free wireless internet was appreciated. Was able to get a great rate ($69/nite) for a standard king bedded room with Booked.net. Would certainly stay there again at this rate.

    Refrigerator in the room did not have a small freezer, but the staff were helpful in putting our ice packs in the hotel's kitchen freezer for us.

    Nothing, we had an awful experience and would never stay there again!!!

    Everything, staff was rude, first room was filthy hair in the bath tub and around the sink, stains on comforter and floor wasnf vacuumed. Moved to a new room cleaner but not as nice as expected. Breakfast items werent fresh nor stocked andwe ate at 8am, called front desk multiple times from 1am on about noisy people partying in the room above us and it didnt appear they did anything about our complaint. Awul staff, awful hotel, awful food

    The staff is excellent. We were greeted with a glass of wine. They were busy at the time. People before us and people behind us in line, we were checked in quickly and made to feel comfortable.

    Great breakfast, great advice from the front desk who were all very friendly and helpful, located in greater San Jose area, lots of available free parking on site, really warm and homey room furniture/decorations, effective blinds for keeping the sun out, clean/modern bathroom, and easy to work air conditioner that was really strong if desired.

    Fabulous

    Nice hotel, pool, jacuzzi, workout room and very good breakfast. Front desk very helpful. Excellent choice of a hotel, my wife was happy, that sums it up!

    The only downside is very small room and not a very good bed, too soft.

    Fabulous

    Rooms were great, and price wasn't too bad. Comfortable

    I showed up at noon to check in. They said the room wasn't ready. I needed the room soon because of having plans. They told me the room wouldn't be ready for three hours. I thought that was kinda rediculous

    The staff were very friendly and kind to us. We especially liked the water jar that was available as you entered the hotel. Small thing yet really nice to have a cup at the end of a hard day (the water was cold with lemon and/or orange slices in it). Really nice breakfast too. Very clean and comfortable.

    Great value and very nice accommodations. The location is very convenient for those taking in a concert at Shoreline. We will definitely stay here again.
