San Mateo, Silicon Valley, California

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located near downtown San Mateo
  • Extra-spacious closets are great for extended stays
  • Rooms come with mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers
  • Free continental breakfast
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free parking

Cons

  • No pool or fitness center
  • Room conditions are hit or miss
  • Outdated tube TVs
  • Tiny bathrooms
  • Street noise can be bothersome

Bottom Line

The 45-room Stone Villa Inn San Mateo is a decent, no-frills, motel-like property near downtown San Mateo. The rooms are hit or miss -- some are cozy, clean, and appear recently remodeled, while others are shabby, lack a proper desk, and have stained linens and hard mattresses. The spacious closets and free Wi-Fi are a plus, but the tube TVs and tiny bathroom countertops need to go. The inn offers a free continental breakfast, but it’s just the basics: cereals, bagels, milk, coffee, and juice. Luckily a number restaurants are nearby, so dining options aren't terribly limited. There's no pool or fitness center, but extremely low rates may be all a traveler wants -- making Stone Villa Inn a so-so option for value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located right off El Camino Real near downtown San Mateo, and about 20 miles north of Silicon Valley

The Stone Villa Inn is nicely located along El Camino Real near downtown San Mateo, part of the San Francisco Bay Area and one of the larger suburbs along the peninsula. The city has a downtown area with shops, restaurants, and nightlife action. It’s also home to the eucalyptus-covered Coyote Point Park and CuriOdyssey (formerly the Coyote Point Museum for Environmental Education). San Mateo is about 20 miles north of Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley, considered to be the center of the late ‘90s dot-com bubble, has grown to become the home of some of the most innovative technological companies in the world, such as Apple, Google, and Adobe. Located in the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley remains a hot spot for venture capitalists, too, making it the ideal place to be if you’re a digital startup.

  • 13-minute drive to San Francisco International Airport
  • 6-minute walk to San Mateo County Event Center
  • 15-minute walk to Hillsdale Shopping Center
  • 4-minute drive to San Mateo Public Library
  • 6-minute drive to Poplar Creek Golf Course
  • 7-minute drive to Coyote Point Park
  • 26-minute drive to San Francisco
  • 28-minute drive to Silicon Valley
