We came here for our honeymoon. Being newlyweds and on a budget, Stone Villa Inn was our choice because of the price. The neighborhood seems kind of sketchy at first although there were some delicious Asian restaurants around. The hotel was clean but the best amenities were the tv and the shower. Big table near the closet made it hard...

A little pricey for San Mateo but Stone Villa is in the last stage of a really thorough overhaul. Maybe they left vestiges of the packaging on the tv, lamp and clothes iron to remind you of it, but everything in our twin room was clean and worked well. The walk in closet, about 8' square,allowed plenty of bedroom floor...

A reasonably clean and centrally located motel - one is better off to skip the free breakfast and walk three blocks north to Heidi's Pies restaurant. Good Mexican and pizza restaurants across the street to the south of the motel. For those without a car: Shuttle Express from SFO airport was $23 with tip, but Adam's cab was $10 more...

Stayed there for two nights; it was a clean hotel, but the beds were hard and traveling with my two teenage daughters the bathroom arrangement was inadequate and there was not an area outside of the bathroom with a mirror and outlet. The pillows were also very thin and the breakfast was ok, but the room inwhch to each was...

Not sure what everyone is complaining about....the room was very clean, very nice. Smaller then most rooms, but very adequate. Bed is pretty firm, could use a nice latex topper. But still it's a great room at a great price. The staff isn't upbeat and perky, but, they get the job done and very well I might add. If you...

Fine for a stay of two days or less. It's clean and comfortable but very small and the pillows were very very thin! TV was also a tube style TV. The internet connection however, was very good.

I recently stayed here for 3 weeks and this place was exactly what I was looking for! Very clean and comfortable room, with breakfast every morning from 7-9 AM. Cable TV and a nice bathroom for an extremely low rate! Very close to the Hayward Park Caltrain and Safeway, as well as buses in and around San Mateo. Plus the...

My fiancé and I arrived at Stone Villa Sunday night from our trip to Seattle. We looked up different hotels and such but nothing satisfied us, due to location, ambiance, and the "feel for it." Finally, we checked out what Stone Villa was all about. I had called in and explained our situation. The woman on the phone was VERY...

The Stone Villa Inn is within short walking distance of the San Mateo Showground, which is why I chose it (I was in San Mateo for the Maker Faire). Friendly, helpful staff - I shall stay here again. If you like South Indian food the new Dosa restaurant a few tens of yards east of the hotel (next to the...
