This is a welcoming and convenient place to stay, obviously very popular with families whose children play on soccer travel teams. The rooms are a good size, the housekeeping excellent and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was hearty: fresh fruit, homemade waffles, eggs, sausage, yogurts, cereals, breads & rolls, etc. There is coffee, tea and ice water available... More

I stayed in this hotel in June 2014 and reviews are here: Rooms are very spacious. Breakfast served is very good. The rooms are very quiet and bed mattresses are comfortable. Though a bit far from shopping centres or eateries, there are couple of places to eat outside the hotel.

There is a good but pricy steak restaurant next door along with a Burger King. Nearby, but not walking distance, there is a strip of stores and highly rated but reasonable restaurants. If you like planes, there is an Airport Museum next door as well. Many top IT folks stay here as well since MarkLogic employees stay there.

Thank you for writing a review concerning your stay. We were delighted have accommodated your group. Unfortunately, due to the location of the hotel, Izzy's Steak & Chops Restaurant and Burger King are the only restaurants within a few yards. There are other restaurants within a mile and the San Carlos downtown does offer more than 40 restaurants to cater... More

Stayed the night of July 4 at this hotel. Clean and comfortable room with excellent wifi. Made good use of the laundry but wished for more than one washer and dryer. Breakfast was ok - seating a bit tight Kids enjoyed the outdoor pool and the fact we were right beside airport. Burger King next door has a helicopter outside... More

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

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
