I visited this property for a week of meetings at a nearby software company and I had selected it based on proximity and negotiated rate. The location was better than I expected since I can go between this hotel and the office without getting on the 101 (huge advantage at some times of the day.) Another advantage is a couple... More

Close to SFO, about a 15 minute drive, close to San Mateo, spotlessly clean, super friendly desk staff, and a great variety of breakfast choices. Needed a hotel in this area for a long weekend work trip, and gave this hotel a try. The Air strip within very close proximity could be a downer for those who find an occasional... More

I stayed one week at this hotel in September 2014. The overall experience was a good one. I wasn't impressed by the breakfast ( American style), but they had waffle station and they were yummy. Let's start with minuses: 1.it is located a little bit remotely. For example I forgot to get some toiletries and I wanted to go to... More

Fairfield is located next to San Carlos airport and the 101 Freeway. Expect to hear the freeway rumble in most of the rooms facing the highway. I had the additional misfortune of having somebody pacing up and down in the room above me for most of the night. Rooms seem to lack adequate noise insulation. Bedding is fine for property... More

Dear 22000FT, Thank you for writing a review on the Hotel. I apologize that the room you were given had poor noise insulation. I can't imagine what that was like and how you were able to relax through it all. I hope you did ask the front desk to be transfered to another room. If you would like to discuss... More

I stay at Marriott's all the time.. This hotel was very basic and I didnt get a Marriott vibe. Rooms were clean, breakfast was totally basic, and nothing special about the location... Service was good. Not really impressed with hotel facilities... There are numerous better hotels in close proximity...

Hotel is decently maintained and decently cleaned. I do agree its not super fancy but I would stay that our stay was fair and the price was great. I travel a lot on business and personal trips and nice hotel at value pricing is definitely what I have an eye for. They did earn my money. No major issues.Check it... More

The Fairfield Inn is my least favorite Marriott brand (TownPlace and Spring Hill Suites are better value brands by Marriott in my opinion). I travel to Redwood City area for business and I usually stay at the Marriott or the Residence Inn. So I was disappointed that I had no other choice but the Fairfield Inn San Carlos. I was... More

I should start by saying that I always stay at Marriott hotels, and so I have come to develop a standard for what Marriott properties are like and maintain. I stayed for four (4) nights at the Fairfield Inn in San Carlos in March 2015, and I can say that the hotel did not meet the Marriott standard. The hotel... More

Thank you for your Hotel review. I apologize that you did not have a memorable stay at the Hotel. Did you report the mold, air conditioner & room location to the Front Desk? We would have been able to resolve the issues if they were brought to the attention of the desk. The Hotel has free parking and has it's... More

This hotel is surprisingly quiet. I would hear no sound from other guests in my room, however upon stepping out in the hall I appreciated just how busy the hotel was. My suite was spacious and very functional for my short business trip. I did not care for the breakfast, if I were to stay here again I would skip... More

A poorly managed, poorly kept property. The first room I was given (231) smelled like an ashtray. A room deodorized-soaked ashtray. They clearly knew it reeked of smoke, so tried to cover it up. I had the front desk manager come up. I'm a platinum with Marriott and this is the room they put me in. I can't imagine from... More

Dear Mr. Ken M., Thank you for the review of the Hotel. Thank you for your loyalty to Marriott. I apologize that your stay was not favorable one. Unfortunately, I was not informed of any room that was smoked in because we do not sell rooms with bad odors. I did check the room and you were correct. It will... More
