Lee Vacation
It was a great hotel for the amount of money. Exceptionally clean. Free breakfast. The staff was very professional and friendly. Of all the other hotels in the area, I would definitely stay here again if I come to San Francisco. Would definitely recommend.

For Business Travel Don’t Stay Here
Was woken up every morning at 5 am with hard stomps on the ceiling. So much noise in this hotel! If you want somewhere quiet do not choose this hotel.

Free carb load breakfast with a waffle maker from 6:30-9:30 AM. Room had a weird odor to it to the point we had to keep the A/C on all night. Free parking however if you come back at 1:30 in the morning you have to run inside to the front desk to have them open the garage for you.

Awakened at 3 am by conversation in next room - through wall at head of my bed! I have never had this happen in a hotel. Inadequate sound insulation. Also, vending machine did not deliver bottle of water. Clerk did refund, but only alternative was his suggestion that I could walk across the very busy, main thoroughfare to a liquor store to buy water. No offer to provide water or to check operation of the vending machine. It was 9 PM, in a bit of a sketchy neighborhood.

Why stay in city or by the airport...
The hotel never fails to deliver, and is my 1st choice whenever I am in town. It is close to everything, knowing all too well to stay in the area, and not in the city. Service is easy and trouble free, parking even when busy is ample. No issues. Decent breakfast, only gripe and I am really nitpicking is no meat options. Just your usual bread, bagel, cereal and waffle (but the waffle is good). Easy check-in, clean and comfy rooms.
