This Fairfield Inn was clean, quiet and comfortable. Great location easy on Hwy101 or a quick jaunt to San Carlos downtown where there are nice little shops and places to eat. We were concerned when we first arrived as the small local airport is adjacent to the backside. We were on second floor with our window facing the airport. We... More

We reserved 2 rooms same day. Staff was very accommodating and ensured that we had connecting rooms with our children. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. Only hiccup was that the air was not working in our room. They tried to fix, but were unable to. The hotel was completely booked and we were unable to move rooms.... More

I stayed at the Fairfield inn in San Carlos for a couple of nights on a recent business trip as our usual hotel was fully booked. The hotel is next to a Burger King and the airport...Rooms are clean but basic. Breakfast is high fat, high carb, self service...The staff are so noisy - my room was quite close to... More

Dear Smartie777, I would like to thank you for writing a review on the hotel. I can't imagine how you felt concerning the staff noise. I apologize that you were distressed during your stay. I have since spoken to all the staff about your experiences and want to inform you that this will be an isolated issue. Sincerely, Tony More

Stayed 6 nights. Much better than some Courtyards. Beds much more comfortable and hot and cold breakfast and fridge and microwave included. Nice touch. No onsite restaurant tho. Staff - front desk housekeeping breakfast - very friendly. My room faced the 101 freeway and was fairly quiet. Pool closed tho during my stay. Obviously 101 freeway convenient.

This Fairfield Inn is just a standard-issue Marriott hotel. It is affordable and comfortable for sleeping, but aside from that, there is simply not much else going on. The breakfast is somewhat sub-par (no fresh fruit, limited selection) but still works considering its free. TV has nothing interesting except for HBO (no movie rentals, etc.). We couldn't get Wi-Fi to... More

Super clean property, but not within walking distance to very much of anything. Good: Rooms and common areas were excellently cleaned. Much better than some recent hotels we've stayed at this year. A/C was great, and not very loud, even at full tilt. Though next to a municipal airport (San Carlos Airport - SQL), we rarely heard aircraft, and didn't... More

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

Dear GoneOffTheGrid, Thank you for writing a review on the Hotel. I notice that you had a good stay but had some serious issues. I apologize for not having safes in the room but we do have security boxes at the Front Desk. There was a false fire alarm that went off and the elevator doors did not revert to... 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
