The hotel is very close to the airport and offers a free shuttle which is the main reason I choose it. The rooms were motel style and are old fashioned but functional and if you need a place to sleep with no frills this would be a good option. I booked the hotel on expedia where says 24 hour airport...

The room is clean and large enough. The shower is too low and could use a bit of love. If you want to head into town you might want to get a hotel closer to the Caltrain station. It works for a night but that's it.

It was a last minute booking, and we got the last available room. When we arrived at the hotel, I was hesitant to go out of the car because the parking lot is a bit dark but when I was finally inside the reception, my check in was a swift. It only took like 5 mins then I got the...

Basically, hospitality is non-existent at this establishment. The validity of my ID was questioned by the night auditor in a extremely rude manner.
