Looking for an inexpensive stay because we had an early flight and arrived late for check in. After reading the reviews we opted for this motel. Unfortunately, it was not as clean as was expected. We felt somewhat uncomfortable. For ex., the floors were not swept and were gritty. This I can put up with. But the bath room was...

Dean guest, thank you for sharing your concerns with us. We try very hard to make our guests stays as pleasant as possible and it is always a disappointment when we learn one of them has left with a less than first-rate experience. We wish you had mentioned this to our team, we would have switched your rooms, which should...

Stayed here in October to close to the airport. Room was clean and reasonably priced compared to others in the area. Is it fancy? No. Is it functional , yes. If airport proximity is an issue I'd stay again.

I researched a lot of Hotels, motel's, etc before booking with America's Best Inn San Mateo, they had a nightly rate in our budget and the Hotel was quite decent. It's undergoing remodeling and it appears to be going well. My sister in law is blind and we had no problem getting a downstairs room that was easily accessible. The...

Truthfully, no complaints. Everything was right within expectations for this style of Inn. The check-in process was easy, service was friendly, the rooms were clean, the AC worked and the room had a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Certainly the towels and amenities aren't high end, but they work just fine and meet expectations. Good location, easy walk (or cheap...

Excellent customer service. The staff was extremely accommodating. They provided a free breakfast in the morning, and the parking was very conveniently located. Just a short drive from SF, the airport, and Bart Stations.

Needed to stay near the airport and, because there was a big convention in SF, everything was full and prices sky high. ABVI seemed reasonable at $134. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The TV had lots of channels. The WiFi was fast. They say it includes breakfast, but we're talking about toast and juice.

When it comes to hotels I can not say I am a fussy person as I use them only for sleeping and showing, but I have to admit this hotel is far the worst I have ever been in USA. We paid $100 for the night, they should pay us $100 to stay for a night!! It's very very bad!...
