Palo Alto, California
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

I fell in love with the place. The staff is super friendly. Sarah took such good care of me. I will defiantly come back and recommend it to my friends. Now, I have a new spot to hang out at, have a glass of wine, and decompress. Thanks again Sarah for making my stay enjoyable!

Adorable, great renovations, but the rooms need a little pop of color. The mattresses are extremely hard, so if you want a nice comfy bed, this is not your place. Website said you get a free glass of wine when you check it, but this was not offered to me and when I asked the guy he said "the bar...

Sarah recognizes me when I arrive, takes good care of my each time and the cleanliness is unmatched. I love the energy and ambiance at the nest. The mini breakfast bar is perfect, the rooms are always clean and chic. I love this place!

The day of the hotel stay (3/16/17), while I'm in flight to San Francisco, I receive an email saying they had to cancel my reservation due to overbooking! Mind you, this is the same day as my arrival! I inquired as to how this could happen, and they said they only have a few beds and fill quickly. They said...

Macau, China
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Hip remake of older motel with modern, glass-walled reception and bar and outdoor heated conversation areas. Room makeovers cool as well. But some of the maids either considered cleaning rooms beneath them or outright lied about of having left "Do Not Disturb" sign in the door. Which we did not. Management and reception staff were topnotch and made up for...

Reviewed 20 February 2017 via mobile

Pro: good location, proximity to good restaurants, 35m from airport, decent bathroom Con: expensive, very noisy esp if on ground floor with guests above (more soundproofing required) Recommendation: slightly underwhelming. Priced at hotel prices but somewhat lacking in facilities to justify it. Suggest the hotel adds additional soundproofing to ensure a good night's sleep.

Vienna, Austria
Reviewed 15 February 2017 via mobile

However it turned out to be a remodeled motel. On the positive side the well designed patio and the new bathroom, on the downside the cold laminated floor, extremely thin walls (I heard my neighbor pat on their mattress!) and overall motel flair. Breakfast could be added for 9.95$ and was not worth more. Only filter coffee, only blueberry yoghurt,...

Basically converted from a motel, the rooms have been modernized with a clean white and dark brown look. We stayed in a single level unit so did not have an issue with noise fm neighbors but the A/C retained from the original motel was noisy. Convenient for short stays especially for business travelers.

Stayed here in January. Nice lobby (per the pictures), but my room was a bit small, cold and noisy. Ear plugs on the bed side table were needed. Bathroom was nice, bed was comfortable. Breakfast was quite nice

Oakland, California
Reviewed 2 January 2017 via mobile

The reason the rooms are $108 on Hotel Tonight is because this is a tech nerd version of a Super 8. Granted, $135 with breakfast isn't bad if you're on a budget but Airbnb is a better deal if you need a good night's sleep. Most rooms are on noisy parking lot, and while toiletries and gym are solid, they...
