I have stayed here in the past due to the price, cleanliness, and proximity to my sister. I never expected the Soup Nazi from "Seinfeld"!! Knowing that plastic forks were provided at breakfast I went to the office to request two one evening. After a barrage of 9-10 questions about my room and intended use he yelled "No!" For the...

The husband and wife owners are very nice. The room, 104, was big, had good furniture with no dings, like new bedspreads, flat screen Vizio TV, a 4 burner electric cook top and small sink, fridge, microwave, single serve coffee pot, table with 2 chairs, desk with 1 chair and a dresser. The tub is a deep jacuzzi type tub.... More

Upon entering room, a foul odor was overwhelming. It smelled like a combination of smoke/dirty socks! Carpet badly stained in several areas. Continental breakfast is vy limited. This wasn't worth $155.00!

America’s Best Value Inn, located at 1562 El Camino Real in San Carlos, offers an economic room within your budget. After driving for many miles, we decided to stop to rest. We were enjoying our 4-day weekend, due to Veteran's Day Holiday and a school holiday added in our school system for convenience. At first when I entered the lobby,... More

Not a bad place at all. I've been staying here through the week on and off for the last 2 years. The manager is great and the maids actually clean unlike other places in this area. Parking is available and you don't have to pay for it.

We stay at this hotel like our home based. First of all the location is great. It is close to Laurel Street, where life is beaming. The hotel is a few steps away from Trader Joe's and Walgreen. The staff try their best to accommodate and complaints are dealt with accordingly. There is free breakfast with croissant, bite size muffins,... More

I was there for four days, room was clean but staff was useless, I reported my room safe didn't work, no one ever showed up (it looked like it just needed a new battery). While checking in I asked to use a rest room, no dice. Internet was iffy.
