We drove 14 hours, one member of our party became quite ill. When we arrived, we had been stuck on a bridge for 2 hours. Suffice to say our trip was not starting out well. We drug ourselves in to register and check in to our pre booked room. They had no room! "Sorry, we tried to call you" the...

We were looking for an inexpensive place to sleep while hiking in Muir Woods National Park. We spent two nights at the North Bay Inn and it was perfect. The rooms are clean, the location is convenient, the rates are very moderate, and the property is extremely well maintained. It appears to be run (perhaps owned?) by a family, and...

I read all the reviews that had trouble with reservations, but my experience was just the opposite. Maybe I'm more careful? On a trip to surprise Dad for Father's Day, my sister and I drove up from San Diego/LA and Nina made the trip much easier. She confirmed my reservation by phone (there may be a delay or disconnect in...

We came here because of prior T.A. reviews. We were not disappointed. The room was small. but comfortable. it was clean and bright, with pictures on the walls. We had 2 double beds, microwave, refrigerator, HD TV, a small table (with lamp) for my laptop, and a land-line Internet connection. There was an abundance of 20W CFLs (about 100 Watt...

I had not stayed here before, but it was in the neighborhood where I had a business meeting, so I took a chance. I found the front desk people friendly & helpful, and was frankly surprised at the value. Very pleasant, clean room. Not noisy. Free breakfast, HD TV. All-in-all, Excellent Value! I recommend this place without exception!

I am recommending this hotel because it's a very nice and amiable place to stay and not to mention the price are resonable, the place is sparky clean and stuff is helpful. What most impressed me was how clean it was and I mean even the closet was dusted. The rooms are stylish decorated, the beds are so comfortable, you...

For a two star motel it was just fine. I stayed there for 3 nights and my room was cleaned each day. The morning instant coffee in the lobby was the best instant coffee I ever had. The staff was very polite nice and friendly. The location is not the greatest, but if you just want an affordable place to...

From the moment I saw this place I had a bad feeling about it. From the outside it looks like a cheap, rundown motel, and it's in a rundown area, separated from the freeway by only the street and a chain-link fence. The "lobby" is the size of a postage stamp, and is poorly lit. The staff isn't "staff", it's...

My husband and I spent a great 2 weeks in the Napa Valley and decided last minute to drive to SFO the night before our flight home. We usually stay in Holiday Inn Express or similar but we couldn't find any availability and booked this place through a visitor centre. The room cost $80 + tax. We arrived and were...

I made a reservation through Hotels.com and got a 'confirmation' for the requested date. When we showed up, we were told by this woman/owner that Hotels.com had made a mistake and in fact the booking had been closed when reservations were made. However, Hotels.com has already sent an email to me and made arrangements for our stay at another location....
