The Mermaid Inn (the actual homepage is hiding under www.mermaidinnmotel.com) is a basic equiped hotel, with nice size rooms and a very convinient location. For the prize you pay you recieve a good value. Except a lot of other places there is no charge for wireless internet access. (However in some rooms the signal might be less good.) Especially for long stays the location, close to a supermarket and nearby a laundry shop, and the train station, is convinient. The AC is a little bit loud and the windows not the newest once, but that is not a big problem. You wouldn't like to stay there for a "romantic trip to California" (spend more money on that, its not elegant and compfortalbe as a 5 star one!), but otherwise I can recommand it if you need a place to stay overnight or even for longer for work or as a starting point to explore the Bay Area. I was satisfied with the place, the service does only get 3 points, but only on default because that there is no restaurant or nice breakfast area within the hotel. On the other hand you don't need it, the supermarket and several restaurants are nearby. The staff is friendly and does help you with your questions.
