Convenient location to the 101 freeway and San Francisco. Rooms were nicely equipped. I would say that lately I am having trouble with the Mattresses at Holiday Inn Express locations, this one was OK. AC in the room was older, noisy, and blew directly on the bed. Small Balcony was a nice surprise. Due to the heavy California Rains, We...

We visited friends in SF this past weekend and stayed at the hotel. Although our first assigned room seemed to have left over pet smell, management quickly assigned us another room that was odor free. Breakfast was better than average with three kinds of breakfast meats and two types of omelets as well as having the "standard" options. Three types...

Quaint + Comfy! The hotel feels like my home away from home. The beds are ridiculously comfortable and the staff is super friendly. It is wonderfully located to many amenities, especially with the newly opened Good Earth Natural Food store...just a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Joanne is part den mother and part tour guide who is the heart...

I use this hotel exclusively for it's fabulous location, good value and wonderful service. Joanne, at the front desk, makes sure we have everything we need. She feels like family, adding a warm, human touch that makes this place so very special. When you're at the front desk, ask Joanne for a just-baked cookie. Tell her Mark sent you.

I had a very good experience and stay at this hotel. The front desk staff was very pleasant and one agent particular (I think her name is JoAnne) went above and beyond, she was great. The hotel appears to be a little older but it's clean and is in a great location right off Shoreline highway. Would stay here again.

The staff always makes me feel like home, this was the second time I stayed here in the last few months. And I want to especially thank Joanne and Rolando, for their warm welcome, stellar service, and overall hospitality. I would suggest this place to anyone to stay!!

Joanne Forame (at the front desk, one of the Guest Service Agents) was outstanding. I walked in when she was busy with another guest and I just didn't have time to wait, so I breezed right on past her. I was rather rude about it (I'm sorry). Joanne was the consummate professional, courteous and helpful, never acknowledging how rude and...

Stayed twice in a week or so period. Room 114 - the bathroom overhead lamp sounded like a freight train and I never used it for fear it would wake the neighbors. TV channels were wildly limited. That said, the bed could not be more comfortable, the pillows divine, the breakfast was perfect. Great staff...even with the electrical outage due...

This was a good location for doing a day trip to San Francisco. Because rain was in forecast, they were not doing the smores in the evening, nor was the hot tub working.

We often put up family and friends in this motel. Clean, good location and located next to a walking/bike path. It's not luxury, but it's safe. Great, high end restaurant, Frantoio, is next door- not a part of the hotel.
