We were both pleasantly surprised with the comfort, convenience and amenities of the Hilton Garden Inn in San Mateo. The rooms were comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. We paid extra for the buffet breakfast on our two day visit but it was worth every Penny! The selection was excellent and the made-to-order omelets, pancakes, eggs, waffles plus a... More

Great place to stay outside of the city. Friendly staff, clean rooms and great breakfast buffet. Added bonus-free parking unlike in the city! Would definitely stay here again in the future. Easy drive to the airport and the city!

Stayed here for family flying out sfo nearby. Modern hotel, spacious rooms with a high ceiling. Stayed on the ground floor & it was convenient! Plenty of friendly staff on site throughout our stay. Excellent buffet breakfast & complimentary shuttle. One of our main go to spots when flying out of sfo. Keep up the great work!

Not baby friendly. Outdated room design. Outdated air-conditioning made my family sick. Man in a suit and glasses just left me to get the luggage cart myself, stood around made jokes instead of helping and making further effort to help with luggages. Don't even know what his role was. When asked reception for cleaning utensils for baby bottles. Reception said... More

This hotel is perfect for business travelers. It's not super fancy, but it gets the job done well. Had a spacious room, with a nice desk to set up my laptop and one of the better desk chairs I have ever found in a hotel room. Lots of convenient outlets to charge gadgets. Found it very easy to work in... More

Rooms are nice. Average size, love the microwave and small fridge. Huge fan of Neutrogena products, and that was what was in the bathroom. Nice touches like lemon... More

I would have given this a higher rating, but we had a busy day and wanted to soak in the bath before bedtime. The tub is not set up to do this. For us, it was a big disappointment. Staff was friendly. Room was clean and bed was comfortable.

I have stayed at the hotel for a SFO flight. This hotel is so nice and attended by a great and friendly staff. Convenient location with plenty of shops and restaurants close by. Their breakfast is also good! The pool is quite small.
