Hotel Aura SFO, San Bruno
Not great for longer stay
Stayed here for 3 nights and would definitely choose another location for long term stay. A quick one night stay is about all its worth. The housekeeping is very disappointing. They would come in our room and take all our towels, even the ones that were still hung up and replenish nothing. We came back to a room with all towels missing, trash still in all cans, beds unmade, and toiletries empty as well. Never had an experience where the housekeeping does not actually clean and replenish the room. This becomes very inconvenient during a longer stay. Walls are paper thin. Very noisy, doors slamming, street traffic etc. Breakfast was pretty sparse. They say they brew Starbucks coffee, but only have tiny coffee creamers and sugar packets. We headed out for breakfast after the first day. Located on a busy street, limited parking under building. Many other hotels on this street; will try other locations next time due to the quality of service here.

Great stay
After some of the experiences I have had traveling with mother who needs to have a ADA accesible shower this is the first time i have made reservation and when i got there everything was as promised. The young man at the front desk was very helpful at check-in trying to help anyway possible binging a luggage cart and asking if i needed any help getting to the room. There was also a very nice free breakfast and they did a great job having someone there during the breakfast to restock anything needed. Only downside to Hotel was a little outdated and not the best neighborhood. But overall a great stay and would reccomend to anyone and will stay again if going to this area.
