The Rock

A travel blog entry by lisamcinnes


... Chad at this point is thrilled he is finally here. I remember quite a bit, but his excitement gets me excited too. Anyone reading this, can you imagine Chad excited? We do our self guided audio tour and it is still unreal. The small cells, the stories, the attempted escapes and one successful one too. The 3 who made it off the Rock were never found, and nobody knows if they made it to freedom or not. If you don't know anything about ...

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

... features many loops. Dad and I didn't like this though as we had our head banged side to side and hurt our ears. All three of us did a family coaster called Cobra. It was fast but tame - mummy liked it. Then daddy took his turn to bottle the sky screamer. This was swings going round like a carousel but the whole thing moved up so the swings were 100 feet off the ground. We saw a dolphin show ...

Beating the streets in S.F.

Interesting fact- In San Francisco, the Police will not ask to see ID, and check if you are an illegal overstayer, or have a green card.

So it is a good place to come if you sneak into the country.

San Francisco is the Gay capital of the USA - possibly the world.

There is the biggest rainbow flag I have ever seen, proudly flying just down the road from where we are ...

    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.

    Worst Place Ever


    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!

    Incredibly friendly, warm, and courteous


    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.
