      Noisy

      Too close ro The freeway 101. The traffic noise it’s so intense that is difficult staying asleep. I guess heavy trucks also make the building shake like an earthquake. The walls and door are so lite that voices came in like nothing. The lady at the front desk was very discourteous. The cleaning crew also got in the rooms 2 hours before check out… we couldn’t rest.

      Everything you need for a business trip!

      This was a much need surprise. They day prior I stayed at another place found on hotel.com and that was a disaster. North Bay Inn was the place I changed to…well, it super clean and comfy. Room was on the large size and best part is it had a work area. Nice people working here too!

      It was good. Except for the trash truck that came at 5:00 in the morning. It looks like it's in a type of industrial area so it was kind of alone on its own, but adjacent to the freeway. Very convenient and absolutely clean

      Room was nicely updated. Neighborhood a bit sketchy. Mostly quiet, with occasional loud noises from the nearby freeway.
