The extended stay America hotel, situated on Circle star way, San Carlos, deserves a 3 to 4 star rating. We read the reviews and thought we would take a chance as we were looking for a budget stay. We had returned from a cruise, Southampton England to LA, and wanted a hotel room with catering facilities, and to be near... More

I've never stayed at an Extended Stay America property before. It was better than I thought, but would need to be better for me to stay again with the chain. The location was great, close to the 101 and easy to access locations close to Palo Alto and Menlo Park. The positives - the ladies at the front desk were... More

Staff was accommodating when I made a mistake with my reservation and got me a 'no smoking' room. Easy to walk to a shopping area and close to some key roads in the Palo Alto, Stanford, San Jose area. Good value and nice rooms.

Stayed at this hotel for a week in January and had a great stay. The hotel is modern and my room was clean and had helpful amenities like a kitchen and a nice flat screen TV - excellent hotel for the price. Clarissa at the front desk was amazing, always smiling and helped my family out on several occasions with... More

Rooms were clean and the staff was very accomadating. The hotel has a supermarket very close . There are plenty of places to eat all within minutes of the hotel. There is easy access to the freeway in either direction. There is a self service laundry facility on the premises.Great value for the price.

I stay at this area weekly for business and this is by far the worst experience I've had. All hotels in this area are overpriced, but at least I don't have to worry about basic accommodations. - My bed had someone's hair in the pillows, bed sheets, covers, and it was disgusting to say the least. - Bathroom had no...

This is my second stay here, due to arrangements made by my company. The WiFi is unusably slow, and every time I go near the front desk someone is complaining about it. However, when you sign in to WiFi, you are given a $5 option to "upgrade" your WiFi. But, you can't charge it to your room; you have to... More

Stayed for only three nights but paid for it for two weeks. Turns out the bed was infested with bed bugs. The typical groups of three bites don't show up for up to 9 days and they are much worse than mosquito bites. Mine began showing up on Christmas day, at least 40 in all. What a present! Once I...

We had to have our house fumigated so we chose this place because it was in-between our two places of work....our mistake. I have a hard time imagining a business putting an employee up here without the employee feeling like that business must hate them. Where to start? Our bath didn't have a stopper, which seems minor but it was... More

The hallways had bits of paper and other trash all over, as if they were never properly vacuumed. The room smelled bad. It was on the same floor as their smoking rooms, and I think they'd sprayed something to try to overpower the natural smells. Ick. Nobody bothered to tell me the thermostat on the wall doesn't actually do anything.... More
