It was a great stay. I love the fact that it’s right next door to a beautiful Catholic Church, and that it has an IHOP at the hotel.

Affordable no frills hotel. Clean. Great location
Spent the night after an event at Levi’s stadium. I didn’t want to soend too much. This hotel was very affordable for the area where it is located. It is walking distance to the stadium (aprox 0.8 miles).
