The rooms smell of strong cleaning products. I left the windows open and the smell was still bad. Beds are uncomfortable. Staff is friendly.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The front desk clerk was very rude during our check in and barely spoke a word or acknowledged us. He also had his mask pulled down around his chin, despite the several signs announcing the mask requirement taped to the plexiglass around the front desk. Our room was god-sized, but we were not impressed otherwise. The lock was broken off the window so we couldn’t open it, there is mold all over the bathroom ceiling, the bathtub looked really dirty, and there was even a large beetle in one corner of the ceiling of the main space. We didn’t ask for another room because the staff had already been rude and we were in a hurry to get to a Sharks game. The only reason I would recommend anyone stay here is the free parking and close proximity to SAP Center.

The gentleman that checked us in was very very rude! We’ve stayed at this hotel many times in the past and we will not be back. He practically threw our room card at my husband. He never acknowledged us with a hello or anything!!! I will be calling management today
