The hotel looks good and clean. Although a little old, the rooms are clean and well organized. Hotel staff were being very polite and friendly. The only thing I didn't like was the breakfast part, otherwise I would be completely satisfied.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 December 2016

We got to the hotel late at night, 12 pm, and with our reservation we got the last room in which they saved for us. The place was very busy with a special reunion going on. We did have a room way in the back and on the backside not courtyard. We put our luggage down and then went and...

We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us even though it was a brief visit.

Have stayed here often enough to know some of the staff by name. Always a great deal, very clean and fresh, and safe. I often travel for several weeks leaving my car and never a problem. Great food and fun in the restaurant and lounge; not to mention the super early get away breakfast. Shuttle is also very reliable.

We called the night before and confirmed we'd be able to check into the hotel when we arrived at 8:30 am the next day. When we got there we were able to have a bite to eat. We had a “departure snack” consisting of croissants, small cupsized omelettes that they’d preheat for you, hard boiled eggs, bagels, muffins, banans, apples,...

We just stayed here on night because we had a very early flight out of SFO. Unfortunately, we didn't get to take advantage of the amenities, which looked lovely. However, our room was clean, the beds were comfortable

This hotel has stay and fly down perfectly. Great value and effortless execution. It makes dealing with the airport and flying experience much easier than any other hotel we have tried. Clean, comfortable rooms, a great pre-flight breakfast and painless parking.

We've stayed in this hotel over a half-dozen times over the years and having a Best Western "membership" has its perks. While waiting to check-in this afternoon, we overhead the guest ahead of us being told he had to wait at least an hour before rooms would be available. This was around 1 pm and officially check-in starts at 3...

24-hour shuttle bus easy to order from and to come to airport hotel shuttle bay Door 7. Fast check-in despite late hour at night. Homely feel to my bedroom, with clean fluffy towels and bedding. Special coffee machine. Efficient, professional and friendly staff. Basic breakfast was just right before departure with shuttle bus. Highly recommended.

Attractive, efficient, helpful, clean, quiet, and reasonably priced. You can park you car here while you travel cheaper than at SFO. Perfect if you have an early A.M. flight. The staff is well-trained and quite pleasant.
