Clean, good breakfast, very helpful staff
During my stay at the Zen I enjoyed the large flat screen TV, the firm comfortable bed and the convienant front door parking. I accidentally kicked the wood corner of the bed frame and left with a large black and blue bruise above my ankle. Following day, my boyfriend kicked it too! That characteristic of the bed might lead to others getting hurt too.
Quiet; View of golf course; Fireplace & pool area; Breakfast TV reception was variable - some channels poor.
The front desk and housekeeping staff were fantastic. Inability to control the room temperature other than using the ceiling fan. Also, the noise from the child in the adjacent room woke us in the early morning.
The location is extremely convenient - right next to a Safeway, Whole Foods, several good restaurants and bars, a Caltrain station, and of course it's right on El Camino Real, within a quick drive of the 101. It's about 25 minutes from SFO. As noted by other reviewers, the room did not have any unpleasant smell and even has a filtered water faucet in the bathroom. Its low price and great location make it perfect for the business traveler. To be sure, it's not a sexy luxury hotel in any way, but it's not trying to be. It's cheap and clean; that's it. I found the wi-fi shaky, and at times it would cut out and be unavailable for a while. But, if you don't intend to work out of your hotel room for part of the time (like I did), you may not notice.
Reasonable price for the area, clean.
