We've stayed in this hotel a few times over the years--it offers a convenient, safe location at a reasonable price (for the area, which is exorbitant). On our most recent stay, however, we felt that there were a lot more negatives, despite the location and price. Here's a list of the pros and cons: Pros: - Good, convenient, safe location... More

Make sure you book a month in advance to get a good rate. Prices could go above $500 per night if you do not book in advance. They have a light snack in the evenings Monday through Wednesday and they provide breakfast for free. Breakfast includes eggs and bacon and a variety of pastries.

This hotel is right in the middle of El Camino Real so it is very convenient, but we were surprised at how outdated it seemed. The customer service was excellent though, and they really made our stay as comfortable as possible.

The staff at this Residence Inn are the reason to stay at this hotel, they are friendly and helpful although the maid staff are English language challenged. The rooms are about 10 years into the room renovation cycle and the word "tired" is dead on. My daughter says the carpet smells like feet. This hotel is very popular with business... More

For a $150, had a very clean suite on an upper floor off a courtyard. It was like having our own condo, and very nice to come home to from a concert at the shoreline. Bed was comfy, kitchen well stocked, and good sized vanity area. Some nice touches too, such as welcoming coffee and cookies. Diana at the front... More

I stayed here because it was the closest hotel to a graduation I was attending. The check-in was easy. My room was clean and very comfortable. It was a bit small, though. We opened the sofa sleeper and had to move furniture around for it to fit. But, the room had a very nice kitchen and comfortable bed, etc. The... More

I stayed at this property while in town for business. If you've ever stayed at a Residence Inn before, you know what to expect. My room was a ground floor studio suite, with a small kitchen, living area with flat screen TV, and a queen bed. Unfortunately, the ground floor location I was in made the room feel very dark...

Before getting into this, I want to give the folks here *all the kudos* for their landscaping. Residence Inns resemble apartment complexes more than the average motel, and the view right outside my door is just plain *lush*. It makes a middle-of-downtown motel seem a lot further removed, and lends itself to a calm atmosphere. Now the usual breakdown: SLEEP:... More
