The owner is a wonderful individual and the accomodations are very comfortable. The location is extremely convenient to downtown San Carlos and close proximity to Menlo Park and Burlingame. Very well run operation.

This is small inn but an enjoyable stay. It is located in San Carlos between San Francisco and San Jose and not far from the san francisco airport. The staff was friendly and the parking was free. The television had a lot of channels and the room/bathroom were big compared to other hotels. It was nice and clean inside the... More

One of the best values in hotels in the city. A small hotel [15 rooms] with very spacious and clean rooms. Service top of the line. Very safe with a gate and 24hr guard. They welcome your arrival with a no-charge a drink. Be sure to ask if you can get a drink of your choice in case you don't... More

Found this place last minute online. It was very basic, no frills, clean, quiet, the cheapest we found due to a conference in the SF area, and it was about 11 miles to the SF airport (our destination the following morning). The TV had plenty of channels, and the staff was friendly. Check in/out was quick.

This very small hotel was among the cheapest in the SFO airport area and had some good points: 1. Free WiFi that worked 2. Good shower 3. No bad smell in room 4. Reasonable location in that it is not noisy and close to shops and restaurants. However: 1. The staff (who appeared to be family owners) were very unfriendly,... More

Unfortunately the system doesn't allow me to rate is as 0 point, otherwise I will definitely make it 0 out of the 5. It's the worst hotel I have seen in the United States. I am very surprised that it's marked as 2 star and got good customer rating. It's way too off from my expectation. The room has terrible... More

When arrived to check in on a pre-paid reservation found that the our room has been given to someone else. Management then asked us to come back 3 hours later so they can relocate the tenants into another room and get it back to us. Once we were able to get into the room found that it was "superficially clean"... More
