Dear Jerry, Thank you for your review. We appreciate the time you took to write about us and we look forward to your return. Another way to express our location is that we're right in the middle of everything. The Airport (OAK) is only 10 minutes away, Downtown is 10 minutes away, Oracle Center (Warriors and Athletics) is only 10 minutes away and Jack London Square is only 10 minutes away. Our shuttle can get you to all of those every hour and sometimes more often. Thank you for your comments and we look forward to your return.
