4 day site seeing and NFL football game.
My son and I had a great stay at Holiday Inn Golden Gateway. Our room was fantastic, fridge, safe, air, huge tv, beds clean and comfy, bathroom clean, including towels and bath robes. Breakfast buffet was excellent, food and service. Great location, tons of great restaurants and shops. We walked all over day and night feeling very safe. 30 min walk to the bart, also safe day and night. Hotel personnel very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!! Thank you for a wonderful stay. David Livingston

Simple. Clean. Nice
Nice accomodations. Friendly staff..disappointed that pool was closed. I had phoned ahead to ask if it was open and was told that it was only to discover that I had spoken with a customer support that was misinformed.

Safe and secure
Better than expected - comfortable inside. Didn’t realize there was a frig. Upon arrival, recommend to park on lower level so bringing in bags are easy. Liked the security of the parking structure. Should be highlighted in the pics. Safety is always appreciated

Jessica, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
This is my third time at this hotel. I booked a corner King room. Upon arrival I noticed flying bugs and a dead bug in the tub. I requested a different comparable room. The next room was outdated with no where to hang your towels, hand controlled shades. The other room had electric ones. There was a red stain on the white comforter. I have pics to attach. They also charged me an extra $50 and could not justify what the charge was for. I was told that the $50 would be taken off. Only $34 was taken off. The positive was a three corner room with a view of the bay and the city.
