good hotel outside the city.
if you want to go on a cheap but not dingy trip, this hotel is right for you. you'll never find a hotel of this standard and inexpensive downtown!
we did not mind the ride downtown, it was only 30-40 minutes. the bus station is right in front of the hotel and a BART/airport shutttle leaves every 20 min. the buses even operate at some night hours (1-4am) so that going out at night was no problem (they only leave once an hour though).
the hotel itself was good, the staff nice and the rooms clean and roomy with enough storage. it was really quiet as well. we had free internet access in the lobby.
the only "bad" thing was the breakfast: only toast and cereal. but it was included so i don't want to complain!
