Average business hotel with a 10 min drive to reach Informatica Corp or Google seaport blvd, Redwood City, CA. Room ok, bath old but clean, simple breakfast included. Fair price for Bay Area between 100-200 USD. Free wifi. Bring your own bath equipment :-) No luxury but overall a place to stay for some business days.

Make sure you dont get a room facing the airport - can get noisy in the morning Otherwise standard Fairfield Inn hotel. Everything is decent but no charm. Good staff and service very pleasant. Only good for business - would not take family there. Good for runners - just minutes away from the bay trail.

I have been staying at this hotel off-and-on for over a year. It's a Fairfield, so no frills. The rooms are clean, well insulated and quiet for a hotel that's pretty full. These folks get it right. The staff is friendly, the cleaning service is very effective and efficient. Things that are not right are made right in the moment.... More

Marriott hotels are generally reliable, so they are my go to chain. San Carlos Fairfield was a great price in comparison to the nearby hotels. Lobby was clean, front desk clerk was efficient and friendly, hallways to the room looked clean and with new carpeting. When we opened the door to our room, the first thing we saw was the... More

I had a meeting at Oracle which is only a 5 minute drive away, so based on location alone I was very happy. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. No "extras", but up to date and the usual Fitness Center and basic hot breakfast. Good restaurant next door called "Izzy's" - a dark comfy mid to upscale steak/seafood/lounge place -... More

The standards at the Fairfield product line are well known, and this one falls into the realm comfortably. But the staff service for our two grandkids was above average. They made sure our request for extra sleeping needs for the kids were in the room before we arrived, and everyone was welcoming in each encounter. The pool was wonderfully warm,... More

We stayed here 1 night using a Marriott Rewards Redemption certificate (20,000 points - category 4 property). Safe and clean Fairfield Inn. Very nice front desk staff. Quiet night. 15 minutes tops from either the last BART station on the line (with easy parking there) or SFO car rental return. This hotel is just off the 101. I recommend this... More

Not fancy, but clean, comfortable & quiet & 15 minutes from the car rental return area at SFO. The airport is only 10 minutes away. Breakfast choices included hot scrambled eggs, bacon, cold cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice & coffee, a lot better than some hotels which offer only continental type breakfasts. Other hotels same distance from the airport would... More
