Positive Reviews

Location Is Absolutely Unbeatable

You will be blown away by this hotel's fantastic location. It is right in the heart of everything, which means you can walk to it all, from the downtown area right to the event center.

Wonderful Pool On Site

For those warm, sunny California days, you will love the hotel's on-site pool. It is kept sparklingly clean and in great condition, so you can always count on taking a nice, relaxing dip in the sparkling waters.

Lovely Facilities Throughout

With charming wood floors, air conditioning and heater, and large windows, you will love the hotel's accommodations. It has everything you need to ensure your stay is one to remember.

Negative Reviews

Rooms on Smaller Side

When you first walk into your room, you may not be too impressed by what you see. While the rooms are full of everything you need, they are on the smaller side, which can make it tough to spread out and get comfortable.

Internet Isn't Stable

Though there is an Internet signal available for you to use, you may find it is pretty unstable. There are long periods of time when it is completely unavailable, making it near impossible to use or count on.

Breakfast Is Limited

You may not be too impressed by the breakfast options at Howard Johnson Express San Mateo. While everything is served fresh and delicious, there aren't that many options to pick from. You may have to go elsewhere to get more choices or to find something you like.
