  • Family with children

    Good location to the airport; Airport shuttle; All the conveniences needed for a short stay; The pool and jacuzzi was very nice;

    The beds were not very comfortable. Also the loud music from the night club did not make our stay very relaxing while trying to enjoy the pool nor in our room. With the pool next to the night club, it lacked privacy of trying to enjoy time in the pool why passerby's "checked out" who was in the pool.

    Location is near to my son's home so it was convenient. I liked the airline check in service.

    It was all fine

    Location and convenience

    We stayed in room 452. On Saturday and Sunday evenings (until 2 AM!), you had loud, pounding music below our room, which kept us awake -- and very unhappy! You compensated us by reducing your room rate, which we appreciated, but we would have much rather had a good night's sleep each night! Incidentally, we asked if our room was going to be a quiet room upon checking in and were assured by your front staff that it would be. This was not true and we felt like we were "lied to."

    Location is close to SFO airport, staffs are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good. Room is very clean, and comfortable. Hotel design is eco-friendly, relaxing. The small swimming pool is good for body flexing after long haul flights. Free internet is reasonably fast.

    Some noise from the quiet street still !

    Very clean and quiet.Love love the coi fish I only wish I could have stayed long enough to eat or try a Cappicino.

    I was disappointed for the money I paid I had no breakfast included in my stay. I am only one person how much could I really eat. When I was checking in they would not take my aaa discount and they were not extremely welcoming. I have stay at a lot of different priced hotels and I must say this one doesn't rate customer friendly very high. I cannot say I wouldn't recommend you because it was clean and I felt safe for traveling alone.

    The location is good, easy to find. Hotel is very well maintained.

    The noise from the freeway is unrleenting - would recommned asking for an inside room.

    It is a cool place and affordable

  • Single
    7.0

    Good hotel for Foster City but there are closer options for the airport. Shuttle only runs once an hour and invariably has a 25 minute for pick- up (and fairly grumpy drivers). Rooms are good but restaurant and bar selection is pretty average (with a $10 cover in the sports bar after 9pm). Enough good options within walking distance though.

    The staff was very friendly. The hotel is easy to find while driving.

    It is near a highway. The windows do not open. The staff was accommodating in switching rooms at 5am.

    Reasonably close to the airport, which was our only reason for staying. If visiting San Fran, then not a great location.
