We spent one night at this hotel (really more like a motel) on a Sunday night. Checking in was difficult as the lady didn't speak much English. The hotel is right on El Camino Real which is a busy and noisy street. Their complimentary breakfast is a joke. Stale muffins and no juice. Also, we found grapes on the floor,...

My brother was at Kaiser for 2 days & I paid for 2 days. It was so bad that I only stayed the 1 night and drove the 2.5 hours home & returned the next day. It smelled bad. It was the worst hotel I ever stayed at. It was very dirty. I had problems with the key & had...

Spent one night here during Stanford's graduation weekend which made for very pricey rates in the area and chose this hotel on price and location. It may possibly be the cleanest hotel at which I've EVER stayed. Tired, yes. Dated, yes. But the room was incredibly clean, the bed was comfortable, the staff friendly, and it had what we needed...

I really enjoyed my 9 day stay at a ground floor single room in this place. Very good service, clean, quite and located in the heart of South Bay. Clean rooms, adequate parking and reliable wifi. Breakfast is minimal but good quality. Small reception area, you have to avoid peak times. Will definitely visit again.

Got horribly sick from residual smoke in our "nonsmoking" room. There was a burn hole in the chair, the furnishings were old and dingy. We had reserved a king bed in a nonsmoking room and got two queens in a room obviously used as a smoking room. Also very loud train noise as the tracks are right across the street....

Very standard accommodation but clean and with all the amenities you'd expect in a hotel room. Overall a good experience for a budget hotel. Parking is limited at the front of the hotel but extra parking is available to the rear. Could do with being redecorated but this didn't take anything away from the stay.

The rooms here are always clean and well stocked. Also, the owners are very friendly people who try to accommodate and assist you with getting a room even when they are booked and busy, by checking which patrons are leaving and which ones are staying. Lastly, the owners keep the place safe with no signs of riff raff or questionable...

Rooms are nothing fancy but they are clean, bed was comfortable. there is an Amtrak type of train that flys by often, but the building is well insulated and unless you have exceptional hearing, you probably won't notice. Staff was friendly. Lotd of good food in the area, New York Pizza, The...

The owners are terrible! Very racist towards blacks, not enough parking for the rooms. The continental breakfast is cereal and coffee. Not worth the money and the hassle. Bath tub broken, you only get 2 towels per room. The mattress is stained in blood...really not a good hotel!!!
