    « Wonderful Stay »

    My wife had surgery at Stanford and I needed a place to stay near the hospital that was both nice and affordable. We got lucky and found this place. The hotel is super clean and the staff is amazing. My departure dates kept changing due to my wife's discharge dates changing. Vanessa at the front desk was very helpful with all the changes in my reservations. I didn't have to worry about where I was staying, I could focus on my wife. The manager Mike and his crew are doing a wonderful job with this hotel. I can't thank them enough for working with me during this week. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel to anybody. If I'm ever in the area again I WILL be staying here! Thanks again guys! PC

    « Nice Hotel »

    This is a gud hotel to stay for business stays,well maintained by the staff,staffs here are really helpful to guests,location wise it's gud and easily accessible to the downtown..overall a pleasant stay.

    « mr. & mrs. dave c. »

    excellent stay ! large room with sofa and refrigerator. right off el camino road. easy to get to the highway 101/. the breakfast was the best we have had any where in the usa. scramble eggs , bacon to dye for, sausage , toast, home made waffles, hash browns,donunts muffins, three kinds of juices, milk and get my drift. they had 2 ladies on duty making these items . very,very friendly. we can't say anything about the bed as we use egg - crate's on top of it. we will be back !!!

    « Excellent stay »

    Stayed here during a soccer tournament. The staff was extremely easy about having an early check-in and late check-out to better match our game schedule. The beds were extremely comfortable, and the decor was pleasant. They made good use of the small space they had for their breakfast nook, and the fitness room was nice!

    « Great Customer Service »

    Jose was a wonderful help and very accommodating. We had problems with reservations prior to our stay but he made it amazing.The Jacuzzi is out of date and needs to be updated.The food was decent a variety to meet all needs.

    « Okay place »

    On a busy corner, with lots of people all night long. The black out curtains are placed too far away from the window and my room had 3 windows which let in a lot of light. Two which faced a busy street. My room was also 95 degrees when I checked and took awhile to cool down.

    « Summer travel »

    The rooms are small and the lay out not very good. I am not sure what made this executive suites. We had to change the room as their was a west bathing suit in the bathroom, I guess housekeeping was not done. They did have water bottle for us at the front desk when we checked in and cookies. The room has a ref and coffee maker . Breakfast included oatmeal packets , fruit , waffle maker , yogurt , coffee tea etc... There is a grocery store across the street and a nice neighbor to go walking it. The place was pricy for what you get, may just be red wood city. We only stayed one night so it was ok .

    « Great Place to Stay! »

    Great location. Easy to locate. Good amenities in area for meals and shopping. Easy access to Stanford. Comfortable beds, good breakfast daily, clean rooms. Staff are warm and welcoming and do whatever it takes to make your stay enjoyable. Will definitely stay here again......and again.....

    « Run, do not walk, from this place. »

    Terrible, old, dated, run down . This is an ancient hotel that does not warrant the Best Western branding. I have relied on Best Western for 60 years and this shattered my confidence in their oversight and branding of independent hotels. This place really needs to be taken off their books. I was desperate to stay as close as possible to Stanford University hospital and ths was the closest place that was not full. NO WONDER. Horrible.

    « Loud, Unsafe, Scary »

    The location of this hotel is not desirable. While Redwood city in general is a nice town there are safe areas for travelers to stay and unsafe areas. This hotel is in an unsafe area. There were police constantly around the place with sirens going all week. There were also people running up and down the breeze way yelling at each other and fighting in the parking lot and across the street. I will never stay at this location again and am asking that it be pulled from the list of options. The room had a musty smell and there were bugs that I never could identify except that they flew and easily squashed. This was the worst stay I have ever had at a Best Western or any hotel. One other note I would, this is not an airport hotel as it is about 25-30 minutes away from SFO without traffic. The only positive was that the staff were quite friendly and nice.

    « Top Notch »

    Spotlessly clean room, excellent service at front desk and housekeeping, quiet section of the city, very reasonably priced, near to lots of restaurant options, convenient to San Francisco/South San Francisco.

    « Deceptive description. Sketchy part of town. »

    My family and I needed a hotel for an over night layover in San Francisco. I searched for airport hotels and this was a moderate priced option (as in over $300 for the night) so I felt safe in booking it. The pictures do not adequately provide the viewer with full detail of this motel. This "airport hotel" turned out to be over 20 miles away from the airport and a motel. I am not sure how Best Western can qualify this site as an "executive suite," as I would say it was far from business friendly. There was no easily accessible elevator to carry our luggage up stairs. The bathroom has molded, peeling wallpaper and looked absolutely nothing like the photos online. The "buffet breakfast" was closet sized and held about 8 guests total with minimal food selection. Upon waking in the morning, the street outside was crowded over 30 men soliciting work. They called out to me and my children repeatedly as we loaded our luggage in our car to the airport. I was concerned for our safety in this area. I felt completely misguided in my selection for this stay and would NOT recommend it.

    « Bit far for a SFO airport hotel »

    Booked through expedia, and they listed this as a airport hotel... In my opinion that is a strech.. Checked in very late, after midnight, no staff in sight, but he appeared fast, friendly man. Rooms are good, roomy and clean Parking free, and enough space

    « Lifesavers »

    We were staying at the hotel under sad circumstances: our child was undergoing long term treatment at Lucille Packard. The entire hotel staff became our extended family for six weeks during our stay, and we felt cared for, protected and downright loved. Angie and Vanessa at the front desk were especially wonderful to us, but we can't praise the whole staff at the Best Western enough. We'd recommend this hotel in a heartbeat.

    « Great Hotel for the Money »

    Have stayed at other Hotels in the area and for the money this is a very clean property. The rooms, the parking lot and the lobby all present well. Our room was very clean, could not believe how clean the shower stall and over all bathroom area! It so clean for a hotel I couldn't believe it. I'd stay here again, felt safe not to far from Stanford Hospitals and Pal Alto shopping center. Grocery store across the street was convenient.

    « Better than first impression »

    As we drove up, we felt like we were in a bad part of town. Neighborhood might not be the best, but the hotel room was clean and comfortable. I actually slept really well even though my sheets were a little scratchy instead of soft. The breakfast was good, but it would be nice to have a little more room to eat. It's very cramped. I loved having both a microwave AND small refrigerator in the room. Very nice when on business. The exercise room was adequate, but the weight machine was broken. Instead of a weight machine, I'd suggest some simple free weights and a bench. All in all, it was better than I thought it would be.

    « Clean and convenient, solid place to stay »

    Very courteous staff, free bottled water, cookies and coffee in lobby which is nice and rare. Older facility recently updated with comfortable beds, pillows and comforters. Shower had low pressure and products provided were standard fare but the rooms are furnished with a coffee maker, fridge and microwave (though the fridge never got very cold). Breakfast a small step above a continental with eggs sausage and bacon that we're just ok but good variety of pastries, yogurts, cereal and the like. Yummy Seattle's best coffee always flowing. Barely enough spaces for the number of cars there which was a bit of an issue on one of the days I was there. Free and good wi fi, and cable selection. Tiny hot tub but decent little sauna in a small but adequate gym area. The price point was fairly high but research showed was on par with or a little less than similar hotels in the area. About 5 miles and10-15 minutes from Stanford Medical center and offers a discount for patient families. I was there 5 nights while family was in Stanford Medical Center and it worked well for my needs. I would use again.

    « Roomy Suite »

    The neighborhood is mixed industrial but the Mexican Food across the street was convenient, inexpensive and decent. The double suite was enough to spread out and all I need is quality internet, a meal and a good bed. The hotel has been painted recently and parking lot paved, everything is clean and breakfast had an extensive menu.

    « Good place to stay »

    It is well located in Silicon Valley. Breakfast is good. Had very good night of sleep. The bed and restroom are keep clean but the room general appearance need a major refresh. It is very convenient to have a market right in front of the hotel.

    « not so great »

    water temp was dangerously hot. No way should "executive" be a part of this property's name. Not great on the parking, some rooms smell of the Jack in the Box next door. You have to decide between the over perfumed cleaning products used on the room, or the smell of french fries and stoner smoke before opening a window

    « Good value for location »

    Good value for location - most other hotels more expensive. Rooms were clean and bright, breakfast was substantial (although not great for vegetarians). We had to move rooms during our stay which was inconvenient. We forgot some of our belongings in the first room (children's toys, mobile phone charger) but these were not subsequently found by cleaning staff....which was odd. There is a supermarket across the road which is handy, and a very nice Japanese restaurant close by.

    « Don't bother »

    Didn't get the right keys the first time, had to walk all the way back and get them coded correctly and then walk back. Would not provide a printed receipt and never emailed me one, causing me to have to chase it down, and delay my expense report. I'll go somewhere else next time.

    « Hotel Clean and People very Pleasant »

    We discovered this hotel late in 2015, and we have stayed there ever since when going to Stanford Hospital Clinics and Hospital. All of the people we have dealt with are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms have all been clean except for spots (not many) on the carpets. The location from Stanford is not far; the hotel is quiet; and there is a large hispanic grocery across the street if you forget something.

    « Surgery Stay »

    Being from out of town and having surgery at Stanford University Medical Center, I needed to stay in town for two nights. Our request to have a first floor room was taken care of immediately. We often stay at Best Western Inn because they have a solid reputation, clean rooms, fresh smelling, and comfortable. The Best Western Executive Suites in Redwood City did not disappoint. Very solid and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was great. Very pleased.

    « Decent price, location, rooms, breakfast, and fitness center. »

    For the area the price is ok, especially for the size of the rooms. But our bathroom door had a nice shin-high cut-out so the door would make it by the toilet. And one of the tv remotes didn't work the volume. But the breakfast had good variety and there's a small fitness room with a treadmill, recumbent bike, elliptical, and weight station (and tv, air conditioning, sauna, & hot tub). I would stay there again.

    « Robbed in Redwood City »

    I travel for business. A lot... And this was by far one of the MOST expensive hotel rooms that I have reserved for work, EVER... Unfortunately, it was also one of the worst I've ever stayed in. Not worth it for $100/night, let alone whatever insane price they are charging. Next time I'd prefer to sleep in my rental car...

    « Best Deal around Stanford »

    I have stayed at many Hotels/Motels in the area over the past 1.5 years during a prolonged move. This Best Western quickly became my favorite place to stay due to its 1) cleanliness and well kept property, 2) short and easy drive to Stanford, 3) friendliness of the staff and 4) much lower cost/night than equivalent quality Hotels/Motels in Palo Alto. The manager, Mike, always went out of his way to accommodate any request from me and my family. He was exceptional. I now recommend this Best Western to all my colleagues visiting Stanford.

    « Fine place to sleep »

    I thought this was an oddly situated hotel, but the rooms were nicely decorated and the beds comfortable and clean. It was fine for our purposes, which were basicly to land, prepare, sleep, have breakfast and depart.

    « Bay Area Trip »

    Family visit to the area and was looking for a decent priced Best Western near our son & daughter-in-law. This one fit the bill and was just a mile away. Spent Friday & Saturday night. Looks like it has recently been remodeled and it was done right.

    « Best Western Stay »

    We only stayed one night due to a birthday. The property was neat and clean. The staff was very pleasant. They answered any questions I had. I read on another review that this was an iffy location. I found that not to be the case. I felt comfortable during the stay. Though next to a major highway (El Camino Ave.), I was not disturbed by any traffic noise. The only criticism I had was the parking. The lot was small but doable. If we had come during peak season, being able to park may have been questionable. This, however, is not the fault of the property owners. I would stay there again.

    « Surprised »

    In town for business - so the location was great - just worried that their would be a lot of noise on a Friday night in a collage town - no issue at all - very clean - comfortable bed. Mike and the entire staff were friendly and helpful - even recommending a great Seafood Restaurant - The Fish Market - We were very happy to find that particular restaurant as we often dined at the one in San Diego - we would stay here again if we found ourselves in Redwood City again -

    « nice staff and clean motel »

    I was here overnight preparing for early admission to stanford for surgery. Clerk was very helpful. Stanford less than 15 minute drive away. Did not appreciate other guests smoking in corridor outside our room. But over all this is a nice clean friendly Motel.

    « nicely decorated, friendly staff but dreary physical property »

    Carlos was very helpful and friendly and gave us all giant pumpkin cookies,which was an especially welcome treat for the teenage boys traveling with us. The rooms were very nicely furnished and comfortable. The property itself however leaves much to be desired. I don't think it should be rated as a BW plus because it is misleading--typically BW pluses have been more attractive and have some sort of a lobby area.

    « Plus really means quality. »

    We always know we will have very comfortable beds, high quality decor and nicer bathrooms. The Plus makes us feel they are rated and earned this distinction. We are often in areas that we do not know, so this Plus gives us a good guide to what we can expect. We have been very satisfied, and found some unusual areas we would not have tried.

    « Best Place to stay in the Menlo College area »

    Always my first & only choice when visiting my daughter who attends Menlo College. Rooms are always clean, breakfast available, great internet and close to San Francisco and many things to do in the heart of Silicon Valley. Staff is the best and Mike will always make sure your visit is perfect while staying at this facility.

    « Good choice not far from Kaiser hospital »

    My husband had an early morning appointment at Kaiser Permanente in Redwood City. Rather than fight the morning commute from Pleasanton, we chose to stay nearby the night before. This was a very good choice--nice suite, clean and comfortable, quiet, very good coffee with nice breakfast. The only minus was the too fluffy pillow--I need a flatter one. It would be nice to have an option. But we'll definitely return when we stay in the area.

    « motel 5 »

    worse than a motel 6. nothing worked, the room reeked, puke stains on the carpet. room stank so bad it gave me a headache and i couldn't sleep. hvac inpo, wifi inop, bath fan inop, etc. i'm calling my bank card and claiming fraud.

    « Expensive, run-down motel »

    This is basically a motel that has not been renovated in quite some time. I paid close $400/night and while everything was functional it was a run-down motel. I realize it's the Bay Area but this is still way too expensive.

    « Very Friendly and Most Accommodating Place to Stay »

    Usually you don't think of Best Western in the same breath as Hilton, Marriott, Hyatt, or Sheraton and the like, but after this stay, we will include them in the mix. We were very pleasantly pleased with the nice reception and wonderful service during our weekend stay in Redwood City. It's much more affordable than the hotels closer to Stanford University but we don't think we compromised that much by staying at this hotel. The building is a little older, but in good maintainance and more importantly, very clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was big. The only complaint is that it can be a bit noisy if you are on the ground floor (ask for the 2nd floor). Also, the plumbing is a bit noisy, but otherwise, a great stay. The daily continental breakfast had nice choices of food and drinks. The drinks are available all day long, too. Plentiful water is supplied at the front desk. The service at the front desk is great. And parking is easy.

    « Emergency Stay »

    We were looking for a possible vacancy and found one here by chance. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. This hotel was located near where we had to be the nest day and made it easy for us to get there on time without having to rush.
