As other reviewers have said, security is non-existent. Anyone and everyone comes and goes as they please through the facility during the day, from the auto dealership right next door. Storage blocks are left wide open during the day with zero attendance from manager and zero patrolling staff. Storage units have gaps near the ceiling that would allow contents to be photographed with a simple selfie stick. All it took was a pair of bolt cutters and a similar padlock, and our storage unit (which we'd had for many years, and which was full to the ceiling with expensive collectibles that can't be replaced) was completely emptied out. The police officer investigating the robbery was even told by staff that the "security cameras" around our storage unit were, amazingly enough, "not working"!

Not that secure...

Good location, easy access to storage, etc. Only problem is, storage unit doors super flimsy the way the bolts are exposed. Could easily open one with a crowbar.. (Though who would want to?) I would not store anything super valuable here other than personal effects... That works for me...

close and convenient

nice people running place, hard to get in touch with. Lots of cars parked in isles where you need to drive a truck to move your property makes it challenging to get to storage lockers.

Minus one star for a change of office hours that wasn't posted, so initially went to sign papers but couldn't raise anyone in the office. Went back the next AM and all was good-- Edgar very helpful. Clean and well-managed place overall.

Helpful front desk staff. Good, clean storage area and a nice view to boot. Be warned though that there is also a lot of monthly parking and large trucks have a hard time navigating the area.

Recommended: Yes

Victor Feb 14, 2016

Great storage at a great price.

I've rented storage space at this facility before and was glad to return this time. The folks at the front desk are always professional and on point with policy and procedure. Storage units are simple and perfect for a quick drive along the 101 to pick up or drop off stuff.

Methodological service. A good thing for safe keeping of "stuff"!!

Hi, William the manager follows procedure to the T. Sometimes that means one want can't bend policy, but in this case I appreciated it. I feel my possessions will be safe and secure and as long as my autopsy doesn't fail, I'll be in great shape. El Nino is coming and I asked for a locker away from a drain spout and he was very accommodating and showed me several options. I als asked for permission to place sandbags in front of my locker. He called the owner who understood the benefit and approved it on the spot.

Temporary storage, no long term

For the price, I wasn't expecting something fancy, the doors are a bit stuck, the lighting is very limited, but the place is generally secure. There could be better accommodations, but again, for the price, you get what you pay for. I wouldn't keep items in this storage for a very long period of time.

Recommended: Yes

Lisa Jul 28, 2015

Glad I found this facility!

I did a lot of searching online and went to see quite a few facilities and I was fortunate to find Bair Island Storage. This facility has the best price for storage units. The manager William is very helpful and makes the process of renting a storage unit extremely easy. It's been a year now and I am still happy with my choice to rent a unit at Bair Island Storage.

Renting space was quick and unit was very clean.

Monday morning I rented a space very quickly. The price for the unit is good, and they have automatic billing so I don't have to worry about paying each month. I was very happy with how clean the space was, and the service was excellent. It seems to be a very secure facility, too.

From beginning to end (moving=in) EXCELLENT !!!

From beginning my search for a storage facility in the San Mateo area I went on line finding very few facilities that would fit my needs. UNTIL I came to the Bair Island Storage site. WOW everything in a storage facility that I could want. Location, hours, customer service (both on the phone and in person), price, security as you see I can go on and on. I immediately knew this was the storage for me. I reserved a unit on line and also made a call to the facility. William was so friendly yet professional and he explained the entire process with ease. I could picture the facility in my mind just from his description over the phone. When it came my day to move in I was running behind I had made a call "No problem" said William we are here until 5 p.m. When I did arrive on moving day took me on a tour of the facility he did not rush me through or have me sign anything until I was satisfied with the unit. We completed the paper work with ease and I was able to move my belongings in without any problems. The hallways are well lite, wide enough for the larger boxes and the temperature is very mild for those many trips back and forth. Thank you for the EXCELLENT customer service and such professionalism the entire process was so smooth. I plan to be here for a while.

The gentleman at the service desk was very clear and honest. The space was clean and was free of dampness, etc. It was little hard to negotiate a truck because of all the buses and RVs parked in between building. The prices seemed reasonable. There is a problem though: the company isn't honest about the size of the space; I am not sure this is true for all size storage spaces, but I rented a 5x8 unit. however, on arrival, i was told it was actually a 4x7 space, and that all spaces designated that way were 4x7. The clerk was kind enough to let me know that up front, so that i had time to recalculate before I signed the agreement, whether my storage items would actually fit in it, but why does the company lie about that? It doesn't make sense to me,

Recommended: Yes

Thomas Aug 07, 2014

Well-priced and secure with great service.

William was very thorough and efficient in his explanation of the terms of the leas. He let me examine the unit prior to signing any paperwork to make sure it would meet my needs. The facilities are plain, but clean and adequately maintained. Security seems strong with gated access, cameras and night patrols. Finally, the pricing of the units is excellent and well worth the cost.

Recommended: Yes

Space is 72 cubic feet smaller than advertised and not secure at the top, where a gap between walls and ceiling could allow someone to enter.

Great deal and great service, very accommodating.

This is an awesome storage facility in an awesome location. The man who runs the place is there all the time to answer questions and offer assistance. He was great in setting me up with my unit. This place is super convenient as there are many ways you can pay (in person, cash, credit card or even reoccurring monthly withdrawals from your account). I would definitely recommend this storage unit to anyone in the market.

Shellie P. Oct 11, 2013

Best value for your money

It's the best price I could find in the area. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the storage facility has a 24 hr on site manager in addition to restricted gate access. The unit itself was suitable, clean, and on the main floor. The facility is not temperature controlled, but is not necessary for the mild climate on the Peninsula. One note: the move-in can be tricky with a extra large moving truck due to the tight corners of the furthest three buildings of the facility. The manager was courteous and super helpful with the move-in process.

Nic Sep 05, 2013

Super Nice Customer Service

This is one of the cheapest facilities on the peninsula. Everything in California is pretty expensive, so I can't necessarily say it is cheap. The guy at the front desk (William) was super helpful and very friendly. I wish the access hours were extended, but they are open as long, if not longer than other facilities in the area. It's not top security and the storage unit isn't exactly a gun vault, but the building is well maintained and clean. My stuff hasn't been stolen yet, so I guess the security is pretty good.
