My husband and I stayed at this property after attending a family event--actually between all of us at the event we had four rooms in the motel and each of us were pleased with our visit. The motel is currently in the process of being renovated and several of the rooms were closed for renovation--the workers were quiet and clean... More

Not as new as the country inn down the street, but it has updated, clean, comfortable rooms, and decent prices. As housing on the peninsula gets tougher to find, it's nice to find a reliable value priced option. The breakfast is typical motel danishes and cereal, but at an Expedia rate of $139, I didn't expect much more

We had a room here for one night in October. We found the room clean and the bed comfortable. The place feels dated, but was quite fine for our needs for a one-night stay. The continental breakfast included cereals, packaged pastries and waffles you can bake yourself, as well as fresh fruit (apples the day we were there). The coffee... More

I read some of the reviews on this “hotel” prior to booking a one night stay for a very early morning flight out of SFO and I thought to myself, it was a 2 ½ star hotel and I was being charged $140/night so it must be a decent place…I was wrong, very wrong!!! The first room given was right... More

Husband and wife managers unbelievably rude, unprofessional, and discourteous. I made a phone reservation. When I arrived I wanted to see the room before checking in. The manager didn't want to show me the room. When I insisted he demanded that I go somewhere else. I had to beg not to be kicked out of the hotel just for wanting... More

We stopped in this motel when arriving in San Francisco airport after a long flight. We needed somewhere inexpensive and a short distance from the airport. The motel is sufficient for a single night stop off, but I would not recommend it as a base. Bed was quite soft, shower and bathroom clean. There is a small pool which we... More

Traveled with my Mom as I just had shoulder surgery in the area. The woman at the front desk, not sure if she was the owner or not, was very accommodating. She allowed us to check-in early and gave us a room on the ground floor as to not go up a lot of stairs. She also allowed us to... More

I had checked in and quickly checked out of Hotel San Carlos in San Carlos, CA. When I first went into my room, I told the hotel staff that it had a smell/fume in the room. I asked one of the hotel staff to turn the A/C on, to see if that would dissipate the smell. After 30 minutes there,... More

Great price for what we needed. Vacation to San Fran, so we were up in the morning and out until late evening. Clean rooms, the staff was very helpful when needed, and breakfast was ok for us. The breakfast is just simple stuff--the usual coffee, danish, toast, and cereal. Small eating area with only two tables, but ok for us.... More
