As they say, you get what you pay for. In this instance, however, we think you get more bang for the buck, considering the Bay Area hotel prices. The rooms are your standard Fairfield room, breakfast your slightly better Fairfield fare (we suspect Food Services of America having something to do with it; yes, it is tough to eat it... More

This hotel ticks all the boxes. Clean, quiet, fridge, microwave, good lighting in the room, AC, breakfast, and it's the right price. If you don't have a rental car, then its a bit out of the way. But otherwise, great!

Reserved a room here for my family when they visited over President's Day weekend. The agents at the Front Desk were very courteous and friendly each time we interacted. The location (south of SFO) is right off the freeway. Very convenient to San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Right across the freeway is San Carlos, which has a cute downtown with... More

The Fairfield Inn and Suites offers great value for families with a nice hot breakfast included. The mattress shows wear and tear unevenly, so unless I sleep in the middle of the bed, it felt like I was going to slide off. There are signs on the bed and a couple in the bathroom about helping preserve the environment by... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Given the overall price, it was a good value. The breakfast was good, although there was not enough seating unless you got there when they opened (or before). We were on the backside and the San Carlos airport is right there. The planes did not run in the night but we ran the fan... More

This is definitely not one of the nicer Fairfield Inns I've been to. It seems older, the lobby/breakfast area is not too nice, there is only an outdoor pool and the "gym" consists of one treadmill, one bike, and one elliptical machine. Also the motion detector lights in the rooms were annoying/confusing to use. At almost $200/night, this place seemed... More

Staff was very pleasant and accomodating. Hotel rooms were just average. Bathrooms were very small and no real closet available. Beds were very comfortable which was a nice surprise. Breakfast in the morning was better than anticipated with warm scambled eggs, sausage, waffles, and much more to choose from. Close to the airport and if you want a real meal... More

I stayed at the Fairfield Inn and after a long business day I get to my room late at night hoping to fall asleep to a good movie. I often need to watch a little TV to sleep when traveling. Well the TV did not work frustrated I call the front desk to complain. within minutes a nice young lady... More

We stayed here 3 nights on a business trip. The staff was very welcoming and made sure that we had everything we needed while we were there. The room was very comfortable and the bed was one of the best we have ever slept on in a hotel. There was always coffee in the lobby. The breakfast was the typical... More

My fourth stay in 12 months and again a pleasant experience. Friendly staff, clean room and a shuttle (new). My only complaint could be the small breakfast area and the gym is a bit small too. Everything else is well organised. Keep it up!
