Nice Stay
The room had modern decor, via a recent renovation. It also had everything you would need for a stay, including refrigerator and ice machine. 'Hotel' is a bit misleading, as the door is open air, not within a hotel...but the surrounding area seemed safe. If you are looking for a place to stay in close proximity to Redwood City, I would recommend you check this out.

Not a's a motel.
Very loud at night with nearby construction and trains. There are no on site amenities.This is a motel not a park outside of your room. It was clean and updated and the staff that I dealt with was friendly. The WIFI was out for more than 50% of my stay..."being repaired" according to the staff.
