A bit dated in the lobby etc but I'm a fan of this hotel. Rooms are fine. A bit generic and average but not at all bad. Lobby is huge and there is a giant area for breakfast w a koi pond etc. All good although something about it reeks of the 90's. There is a very large sports bar...

I work in both SF and Sj when I go up to northern California and this hotel is at a great location for me. Near the airport and halfway between the two expensive Cities and I get a great rate. Free Parking, Free Breakfast (when you book the right package) and I stay in executive suites that have breakfast served...

This is my second time staying at this hotel, so I knew what to expect. It's fine for a mid-range business hotel. The rooms are quiet, the beds are comfortable, the locations is OK, and the free parking is appreciated. Where this hotel is lacking is customer service. When I arrived, there were two people at the check-in desk. One...

Located right by the beautiful bay, but don't expect to see it. Views from this hotel include the parking lot, the street, the freeway. For the first 30 hours of our 48 hours we couldn't get over the smell of bleach that inhabits the lobby and hallways. We couldn't eat there, again the bleach smell. We booked this hotel based...

We travelled on an extended family vacation. Didn't feel like dealing with rental houses to took up 4 rooms at the Crowne Plaza. Great hotel staff. Easy driving to various area in SFO area. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. Breakfast was pricey for 12 people. Overall positive experience

I was trying to decide where to stay after arriving at SFO, and decided to head south. I ended up here after booking on Hotwire. The hotel was fine, there was no charge for parking. The front desk staff was nice, and the hotel had an interesting setup (with a waterfall). The room was clean and comfortable. The wifi also...

Room was clean with a decent bathroom. The walls were a little thin if you have loud neighbours in the adjacent. Wifi was OK but could slow down at times but it was possible to work from the room when needed. The restaurant in the hotel was nice enough and there was a small gym which was handy. The pool...

We stayed 1 night so my wife could attend a High School reunion. The room was very comfortable, clean and quite.
