Clean motel, friendly staff. Location seemed extremely safe. If you are looking for a budget motel, there is nothing negative to say about this place. A bit pricey for what it is, but all hotels and motels in this area are more expensive than would be the case elsewhere.

Me and my husband stayed at this hotel for one night. It had a large king sized bed but not a very thick comforter. The heater worked well for the colder night. Very conveniently close to stores and restaurants, and stationed on the famous State Street. Happy to have no issues with cleanliness with the room. The continental breakfast was...

This hotel seemed very old. It was nice however. It seemed like every hotel i passed had seemed like they had been there forever. You can pull up right to your room which is different that what i was use too. Breakfast was free. Paid about 100 bucks for one night which i thought was very pricey for the type...

This was an overnight stop on our way from Los Angeles airport to San Francisco, so we were not pushing the boat out. The room was fine, with all that one needs, air conditioning, refrigerator and two beds. The Wi-Fi also worked. The breakfast in the morning was very acceptable, with coffee tea, bread with peanut butter and jam available,...

This place was a cleaner, nicer version of the stereotypical motel: on a main street, surrounded by other motels, etc. That said, the two-bedroom unit was perfect for our group of friends--and would also be great for families. The main room (the room you walk into) included a king bed and the detached room included two full beds and the...

It's decent, carpet needed cleaning and they are in desperate need of some bug zappers in hallways outside of the doors, never seen such big mosquito..yikes! Breakfast was nice, nice view, and the pool area clean. Stayed here 2 times, A bit noisy, and had a problem w/room cleaning 2nd time ... but overall .. enjoyed our stay.

This time the wifi was working well and I had no problems getting connected to the internet from anywhere on the property. So I'm giving the hotel a 4 now rating. The parking lot is a bit tight tho and I've noticed that many guests go over the lines in the parking spaces so that their cars use up a...

Had an overnight stay at Sandpiper Lodge. Fairly decent motel all in all. The breakfast was decent with omelette and choice of bread. On the downside, walls are not as soundproof and you can hear a lot from other rooms; not the State Street in front though. Parking was plentiful and fairly safe.

Very nice hotel; it is a little bit further from downtown, but it has everything you need for a night rest. They have family rooms, with two sleeping areas in the same room; they have a coffee machine in the room as well. The offer a very good breakfast, and parking space.

This is a reasonably priced hotel, not too far from downtown State St. Friendly staff, nice sized rooms. The beds weren't the most comfortable, but I'd give them a 7 out of 10. Good breakfast and awesome that they have Keurigs in the room! Nice Jacuzzi :).
