After 6 hour drive from Tule Lake, needed a place to stay before I caught an early morning flight the next day. Chose this hotel for it's proximity to the airport and price. Since my room was only $87, I was a bit apprehensive about staying here. My fears were quickly swept away when I was greeted my Maria at...

The hotel is good, lots of amenities and very close to SFO but the real thanks goes out to George, the acting manager, who provided top notch customer service in resolving an issue for us. My husband and I travel a lot and most of our focus is on the hotel accommodations themselves. We have dealt with our share of...

Due to my flight changes I arrived not as expected. I was warmly greeted by a front desk Associate Mrs. Lita Wheeler. Mrs. Wheeler was very nice, professional, helpful and kind. She was making sure to accommodate me ASAP after my long flight and before another even longer Intl. flight next day. THANK YOU SO MUCH MRS. WHEELER! Your kindness...

First of all, phony pictures on website. When we checked in, we were told we had to pay $13.00 a night for parking. UGHHH We were on 3rd floor and had to take this "old fashioned" tiny elevator, which could not fit us all with our baggage. In our room the TV was unplugged, had to call someone. The toilet...

I was stuck booking this place after some flight cancellations and got a reasonable rate of 89 dollars a night. Honestly, this place is maybe a step above a really bad Motel 6 in quality. The bed room was dark and dingy. The bed was hard as a rock. The whole property was just kind of strange. That being said,...

The pictures are VERY good at making this look like an ok place. The location is great for heading to the airport, with that the shuttle does not run early in the morning so if you have a flight your finding your own way there. The check in the process was good, the guy at the front desk was very...

If you want a clean, average hotel room with Wifi and airport service, for a cheap price come here! It's great if you have a layover, they do have a continental breakfast but I had an early flight the next day. I reserved a room on Expedia after I got my luggage and came on the shuttle. Staff very friendly...
