After breakfast and a brief visit to the Hard Rock Cafe we got a bus to the top of Telegraph Hill which overlooks Fisherman's Wharf and is the site of Coit Tower. Coit Tower has been an emblem of San Francisco’s skyline since its completion in 1933. The simple fluted tower is named for Lillie Hitchcock Coit, a wealthy eccentric and patron of the city’s firefighters. Coit died in ...

The highlight was seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, and for me driving through the Italian part of the city- seeing all the Restaurants with the tables on the side walk.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Zico Mountain View
There are much nicer places to stay
I too am amazed at some of the reviews this place has received. My non-smoking room reeked of cigarettes. The police came by in the middle of the night to arrest a guest down the hall. The walls are thin so that you hear whatever is going on in the night (like the cops busting your neighbor.) The hotel retains a dingy early 80s look and the walls look dated. On the plus side, they do short order breakfasts and the coffee is good. High speed internet works great. Consider this place a notch above the worst Motel 6 you have ever stayed at.
A very pleasant stay
Clean rooms, good service. Special thanks to Jim the Night Manager who was courteous, helpful and professional. I will look forward to staying at this Best Value Inn on my next trip to the Bay Area.
The Best of the Best
My stay at the Best Value in has been very enjoyable. I have had surgery during my stay here. I found the staff to be very helpful during my recovery. I have had no problems that couldn't be resolved in a short space of time.
This hotel has a hot breakfast every morning and the staff are happy and helpful, they even smile. :=)
I even recommend this hotel to my friends.
Good Place to Stay
I am a corporate traveller and I stay at this hotel few times a month and for me Best Value Inn has worked out the best. I am not sure about the couple of bad reviews this hotel got -- employees are friendly---the full cook-to-order breakfast in the morning is a huge plus--ya I agree the room decor needs some work, but for the price and all the values they offer I am willing to pass on that. Well try it out for yourself and hope your experience is a better one---I highly reccomend this place.
I checked out of this property October 1st. This had to be one of the worst experiences I have ever had. The room left a great deal to be desired in decor and ombience but since I just needed a clean, quiet spot to sleep, I was hopeful this would be suitable. One of the many issues I encountered was finding a fairly new blood stain on the shower curtain which housekeeping should have noticed but obviously didn't...I felt this was pretty important so asked the desk clerk to speak to the manager and she informed me she was the manager - one person runs the motel (desk clerk, manager, etc.)... & I was told "the real manager" drops in once a day! Along with much needed maintenance & security, the worst episode concerned noise. I returned to my room on 9/30 at about 11:30pm totally exhausted from a full day of work - dropped into bed and that is when it started...From that moment until I finally fell asleep at 4:45AM there was loud noises from the room above me - sounded like a herd of elephants walking around. My calls & finally a visit to the front desk, at 3:00AM, (where the night cleak was sound asleep on a sofa) to ask for help brought no results. He did try to resolve the problem, however, he was unsuccessfull. A nice young man but obviously not prepared to deal with any out of the ordinary issues. On checking out this morning I informed the day desk clerk of the noise and all she said was "no one else complained" - I responded that it was the room above me so maybe noone else heard it! There was no "I'm sorry or anything"...Not sure if they rent by the hour but stay away from this place. It is bad news with no or poor type management & no concern for their customers. I could not move because I had reserved/prepaid this through Expedia. Live and learn but beware of Best Value Inn in Mountain View, CA.
Not so hot
I can't believe some of the reviews I've seen on this site. This place is barely mediocre. My room (108) was depressing....badly in need of a paint job, and just one small picture to break up the monotony of the white walls. I felt like I was in an institution. The room badly needs a renovation. The bathroom sink was stained. The bed was comfortable, I'll give it that. But I found the Quality Inn & Suites in Mt. View a FAR better value. For just a little more money during the week, you get a much newer, better room. And on the weekends the price is the same. My advice is to spend a few more bucks and stay at the Quality Inn.
Cannot praise this excellent motel highly enough
I cannot praise this excellent motel highly enough. By far the 'best value' of my 2 week trip, at $59.
It is worth staying here even if you have a distance to travel, as you will be completely satisfied with the rooms and service from the staff.
Big room, air-con, fridge, microwave, TV and bathroom. Free use of internet in lobby- this is being extended to 6 stations!
Fantastic choice of restaurants and take-aways a short drive away on main street.
Check this out!
I arrived in mountain view with my dad to help move in for a job in the area, and picked the Best Value Inn via a listing board service. The deal was very good, 280 for a week and breakfast included.
Great Place; firendly people
The people are great, the rooms large and clean, cooked breakfast, and super convenient location. The price is more than reasoable. This will definately be our place to stay when we are in the central Silicon Valley area.
