This is a great place to stay in the San Mateo area. It's clean friendly and quiet. The gentleman at the front desk was more than helpful when I left my wallet upon check out. I called in a panic and right away he checked the room for me, retrieved my wallet and held it safe for me at the... More

This hotel is clean and appropriately appointed. The hotel is old and as a old hotel there is not adequate sound proofing. The hotel is suitably located and easy to get to and from. I do think the price is expensive. I would think the price should be about 30% less than they charge.

Nice, quiet, little find with quiet rooms, soft beds and great staff. I really can't find fault with it considering the price, breakfast isn't spectacular but they've got cereal, toast, pastries and a waffle maker. The staff were useful and a pleasure to be around.

The Hotel San Carlos is neither flashy nor luxurious, but it is squeaky clean, spacious, and convenient to 101, and a short walk to Caltrain and downtown San Carlos. Apparently once a 1980s motel, the building is remodeled and the rooms are updated (digital heat/cold controls, bathroom fixtures, interiors), the pillow top mattress was very comfy, and there was a...

This hotel has been nicely renovated the beds are super comfy and I love the décor. The breakfast was not the greatest but there is a diner walking distance that was good. I did not have any issues with the traffic noise in fact the beds were so comfy I slept great! I would definitely stay here again.
