I booked this property on behalf of multiple colleagues for business. After months of patronizing the hotel, I realized that they overcharged me by over $4000!!!!! I have spent countless hours trying to get my money back and still have not!! On top of that, my colleagues had to pay extra to get working internet, there aren't enough pots and...

I agree with the Theft by foreign Hands review. They sure take but the quality is cheep and the attitude is poor! The Handicap room was not ADA compliant for starters and not one safety bar in the bathroom or shower. Was a regular room with a doorbell is all. Not even a larger bathroom for someone in a wheelchair....

Tricky as they come. Once the Asian/Indian managers have your bank card, they will use it like their own piggy bank! WITHOUT YOUR AUTHORIZATION, they will continue to remove large sums from your bank account - until you are out of large sums, then they will go after what is left. I have been forced to cancel my CHASE bank...

DO NOT STAY HERE. Food crumbs on bed spread, dust all over, toothpaste dribbled down the bathroom cabinet, long hair attached to filthy hairdryer, grease all over kitchen cabinets... filthy. When I complained they moved /"upgraded" me to the King Suite. Far from a King's suite. Similar circumstances, but this time I found dog food on the floor from the...

After reading earlier reviews, I was hesitant to stay at this hotel, but I was presently surprised by both the staff and the room. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the staff provided all the necessities for my two week stay. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel manager made ever effort to make sure my...

I stayed overnight because I had an 8 am ultrasound at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation down the street. I chose the hotel mainly for it's location. Marriott and Embassy Suites properties had better decor, bedding, and finishes. It's an old, tired property despite some refurbishment. I hope that long-term guests are paying less than I did for a night!

This is a budget hotel in Silicon Valley, It is just off 101 highway, where prices of other properties are over the roof. Most hotels nearby are extremely expensive. The hotel is in an industrial area. Few shopping options like Best Buy, Ross, TJ Maxx are at walking distance. Redwood City downtown with lot of restaurants are also 5 minutes...

After reading other reviews, I wonder if anyone understands the type of hotel this is. I had a nice, clean room with a kitchen. The guy at the front desk should probably have a better mastery of the English language, he is extremely difficult to understand, but he does try to be helpful. Everything I needed to know about the...

The stay was horrendous from beginning to end. We were given no information about the room, or the fact that we had to request all of the items we wanted….
