Rated 1 out of 5 by Nowifi1234 A hotel with no wifi
This is probably one of the worst hotels to stay in for the average business traveler.
Wifi is critical to work and play - the wifi at this hotel simply did not work - would not connect across multiple devices. I had two colleagues traveling with me and between us we had 8-9 devices - none of which would connect to the wifi satisfactorily.
My colleagues attempted to contact support - one of them never received a call back and the other was put on long holds and an hour later still did not get his device connected.
My experience with the breakfast service was even worse - a $18 breakfast with a $4 additional charge for a poorly brewed cup of cappuccino. Breakfast quality and spread was mediocre - no wheat bread. Very poor service.
I will ask for a different hotel next time I travel to Pleasanton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patches Simple, Easy, Fresh and Clean!
Everything was perfect ! Nothing lacking and the simplicity, clean, fresh look and feel was excellent.
Loved the shower amenities - again - so simple and easy AND you can READ
the contents on the containers!
Sadly, we were unable to experience the bar, lounge and restaurant due to family commitments - but it all looked so inviting and especially the patio set up under the trees in the morning.
This was our first PLEASURE (vs, business)stay in a FOUR POINTS and we look forward to our next one in Portland on

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lynn03 Not suitable for wifi needs...
After 2 calls to the front desk, I was on the phone for 45 minutes with the hotel's network contractor. I was told the issue would be solved in a few hours and I would receive a call back. No internet the 3 days I stayed. I went off the hotel grounds to conduct business.
Secondly, housekeeping knocked on door at 8:01am (waking us up) to hand me the newspaper (instead of leaving in hallway outside the door).

Rated 5 out of 5 by GILL63 A MUST STAY
Situated less than 10mins walk from the station and surrounded by beautifully kept gardens. This hotel is a must if you are in pleasanton. Just 40mins into San Fran on the train and 5-15 mins drive either to Stoneridge mall or downtown.If you fancy chilling out at the hotel, then you can take a dip in the heated pool or lounge in the spa. Breakfast is a must, the choice is extremely good. Staff are very helpful and our room was clean and well presented.This is my second stay here, would recommend every time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Joseph83 Busy but underwhelming
Front desk was very busy and not overly helpful. Room was not made up at 4:30 in the afternoon when I returned. Food and service in the restaurant is poor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DACumpston FOM+staff needs a customer service refresher
Good: Room + amenities, although the rest of the upgrades need to be completed in order to justify the Category 3 SPG rating
Room for improvement: Training the staff to act quickly and appropriately when the pool rules are being violated, which impacts the experience of us paying guests.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MI22 The hotel needs some improvements
It lack a private computer area which is really important for a business traveler, there were only two desks in front lobby. They had to do some painting right where I was sitting which became very unconfortable. The initial room given to me was gross, stain rug, and smelly. Staff moved me to a cleaner and nicer room at my request. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and very accomodating. The breakfast buffet was very good, one of the better ones I have seen from other hotels.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wsugocougs Won't be staying at this Four Points again.
This was my second stay at this hotel, and will likely be my last.
- decent rooms for a Four Points
- I booked a King room and got two queens. Why give me a choice if you're not going to give me the room I actually book.
- The night crew at the front desk is not very friendly. I also had to ask for my SPG amenities instead of them just giving them to me.
- I never received a bill under my door or via email.
- The breakfast is okay, but the service is non-existent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Eric71 Terrible experience
We booked two rooms for 3 nights here as part of a soccer group in town for a tournament. We did not have hot water two of the three days. There was a really loud pipe/HVAC issue all night the second night that we had to complain 3 times about. Finally we were moved rooms with out any luggage help or offer to compensate us on the bill. The bar was out of almost every beer on tap as well. We will be back in Pleasanton next year for the same tournament but not at this Sheraton.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TravelingToo Slept well
Positive: We slept well
Toilet dirty. I lifted up the toilet seat and there was BM underneath it.
Maintenance had to come and unplug the tub drain, because after turning on the shower, water filled up the tub about 3 inches. However, we give thanks for this being taken care of in a timely matter.
It would be nice to have a bottle water for both of us, but was told only one water bottle per room.
Room did not have a refrigerator. It would have been nice to have one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WeeklyVisitor Fine hotel, Internet connectivity needs work
Overall, the hotel was fine and met expectations for a Four Points property. Two main improvement areas: (1) the Internet connectivity was horrible. The front desk sent the tech to my room and he reset two routers, but connectivity remained very spotty and ineffective. (2) a two story hotel with no elevator is a big pain for business travelers who live out of rolling suitcases.
Other than these two points, the hotel is comfortable and relatively attractive for a Four Points.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sunshine04 Terrible Bed
Staff, facilities and room service was good. However, the room accommodation was terrible. It was a very uncomfortable bed; it was lumpy and was sagging in the middle. We woke up a few times during the night feeling very uncomfortable and our neck and backs feeling very sore. Air conditioning was too loud. I was very disappointed, especially considering for the price paid for the room. This experience did not live up to other Sheraton hotels that I have stayed at previously.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KBLAW Never Again
My wife and I stayed here for one night after a business event nearby. The room smelled like a used litter box, cold air blew from the HVAC system all night (outside temp was 30-40 degrees Fahrenheit), the door to bathroom would not stay open and there was no exhaust fan or vent so the bathroom was freezing and stayed steamy after a shower. The bedding (sheets/blanket) had holes and cigarette burns on it. Overall it was a terrible experience and I will not stay there again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Urbi Needs improvement
The rooms are (very) old and clearly need improvement!
The door to my room jammed and it needed a kick to open. Cleaning service had a similar problem with it as I found my room WIDE OPEN when I returned at the end of the day. Unacceptable of course!
After reporting it to the reception they mentioned the compaint was passed along but NOTHING was done to fix it.
Worst hotel I've seen in a long time and should really not carry the Sheraton label.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sunshinenov2013 Been there a few times
Overall, it's good, but a few compliant areas that could be fixed.
* Staff was two weeks new, didn't know where the workout facility was
* Cold days, breakfast had cold syrup and pancakes. Really, very cold syrup...?
* Cleaning staff always cleaning the front entrance area between 7:30am and 8:00, high traffic morning time, yellow signs everywhere that the floor is wet. Can they not wait until a non high traffic time?
Everything else was very nice.

Bathroom can use a painting ,mold all over and calking was moldy too. pillows smelled like mold. outsisde grounds (bld 200) area dirty ,weeds no up keep. In service dishes sat outside a door foyr 2 days. Funny how the lobby and front hotel area are so clean and once you get to the rear, OUCH seems to be forgotten about -you dont think hotel guests see this????
Especially for rates, should be CLEAN.
parking area in back too litter, below standard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by becbec Excellent for the Price
Everything about our stay was very pleasing and comfortable. If we had any negative comments it would be about not being able to access the internet. It was the slowest connect we have ever encountered and once connected it would go in and out so if you need to have internet access you might want to stay elsewhere. One other problem was that the pool felt like you were in the hot tub. Not good if you swim laps but if you have kids then all right.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DCV1099 Beware of bar/restaurant
We sat at the bar the first night of our stay. when we ordered our beers they were $6.00, when we paid for them they were $6.50. When our friends came an hour later and ordered them they were $7.50. All Bud Lights. The bartender took two of our beers before they were finished. I thought the food was overpriced for the quality. I would rather go to a hotel where I can trust the bar/restaurant service and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by plateshopper Best night's sleep!
This hotel is an older property..but kept in very good shape. The rooms were spacious and the beds were amazingly comfortable! (...and I am very picky about the bed I sleep on).
I appreciate the style of this hotel. it's a two story bungalow style with beautiful grounds...a little oasis amidst a sea of corporate buildings. It was quiet, comfortable and felt very safe.
All the staff I encountered were top notch...not a grump in the bunch!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ann12 Dissappointed
The hotel rooms are dated and did not look anything like the pictures on the internet. When I checked in they stuck me in the back of the hotel and I did not feel comfortable since it is in a industrial area and the room also had a connecting door to the next room. They were kind enough to put me in another room. In the morning the maid was knocking on my door at 7:00 am and then all the maids were outside my door having a conversation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ssn5 Some great things and one not so great thing
Overall I would recommend this hotel because of the friendly staff, extremely comfortable bed and nice landscaping with trees and a little river. Very peaceful.
The only con was that my room smelled like smoke, so we had to open the sliding door and air it out. I'm sure I could have requested another room, but we were just too exhausted by that point.
They recognized my gold status at the front desk and were very gracious and helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NoCal Housekeeping needs improvement
This hotel certainly met all of my business needs and was mostly clean and comfortable. Two areas need improvement, however. When I returned to my room at the end of the day, I noticed that housekeeping did not pick up or remove dirty towels from the bathroom. They also left the shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel containers in the bathroom completely empty. Also, in order to use the coffee maker, you have to unplug the refrigerator.
