2/10 Poor

No kitchen supplies at all in full kitchen you have to provide your own everything. Cheap towels sheets, everything was broken or didnt work. Bed was uncomfortable. Owner and all office staff are extremely rude and dont care about guests. All they care about is money. Do not stay here.

Room not as shown
States full kitchen on website. It is not. Small fridge, no freezer. No utensils, no plates, no cookware, no paper towels. Person that checked me in ran my credit card incorrectly and declined my stay 5 times. It took over an hour to figure out he was putting in the wrong expiration date.

Love this place!
I always book here when visiting family in the Bay Area. I love the Exectuative Suites as they are roomy, comfortable, have a large bathroom and a full kitchen. Remember to bring your own set of cookware and dishes and you are in business for a wonderful homey stay!
