Check-in was faultless as always including the fact that we had pre-selected a room location, which was available to us. Parking can't be beat - underground and connected to the hotel, readily accessible. The room is, as always, spotless. Our pet peeve is that the bathroom is equipped, on check-in, with one bath towel, per person for the two of... More

Stayed here because it was walking distance to the BART Station (about a 1/2 mile). Room was clean but overall the Hotel is very dated and worn. Managers reception on Wednesday was a very pleasant surprise after driving all day. The burgers, chicken, brats were all very good and done right there in the court yard grill.

I'm teetering on giving this hotel a poor rating, but beings as I didn't see the other rooms and can only comment on my room, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and up my rating one level.

Staff was amazingly friendly and helpful, especially the guy who checked us in and provided us with driving directions to the BART station. Room location was perfect, quiet and near the elevator (a tough combination at most properties!). Breakfast also exceeded expectations. Property was attractive, well laid-out, well maintained. Bed was divine.
