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

For a Fairfield this one has comfortable beds, clean modern rooms and typical breakfast. The breakfast room is small but some ate in the lobby. The waffle batter is horrible. It like eating rubber. The pool is very small and one family would occupy it entirely, that's why I didn't use it. The staff is friendly and helpful. I only... More

Nice Quite rooms, comfortable beds, free breakfast with lots to choose and friendly staff. The kids liked the pool. Would stay here again. Also the Burger King next door is designed to look like a control tower at an airport. Thought that was cool.

Compared to the other hotels in the area, this one is more affordable. Nothing stands out as truly amazing, but I will say that the staff/manager is attentive and cares about your stay. So all in all, great place to stay.

I visited San Francisco for vacation and decided to stay here since it was in the direction of my vacation destination (Drive on CA-1) and helps me avoid morning traffic in Frisco. Great friendly staff and a very clean and comfortable place to get a good night's sleep. Very convenient location on route 101. Highly recommended!!
