We really enjoyed our stay in the biggest room in this hotel. The service and room were higher than our expectations – a lot of space, kitchen, bathroom and indeed King size bad. There is a shop and Baskin Robbins not far if you want to get some snacks at night :) D & A

Great Motel, clean and comfortable room. Good price for san francisco area, easy to find and parking available, friendly service. Breakfast is included with bagels, rolls, cereal and coffee and just 30min drive from San Francisco. AA+++

My daughter and son-in law live in San Carlos on Howard Street. I planned the trip prior to baby's arrival and felt that it would be best to give the new parents some time for rest and not stay with them. My daughter researched the hotels in close proximity and indicated that Americas Best Value Inn would be a good... More

The room is a nice size. The were a number of issues, but most were taken care of immediately. The safe did not work, we had to have pest control come in -- ANTS. I could not sit on the the bedspread, nor did I want my clothes. The bed was comfortable. The best thing at it was the location... More

I stayed at ABVI, San Carlos for 4 weeks and it was a good experience. This is managed by hardworking, hospitable and polite couple (Bipin Patel and Vibha Patel). They take care of your convenience and always greet with pleasant smile. They make sure your room is clean every day and you do not have any problem during your stay.

Italo/Australian Couple. Just spent 11 nights here. Central location with easy access to 101 and 92 and access to San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Santa Cruz Monterey, Muir woods and Columbia, Half Moon Bay were all within easy day trips. Plenty of eateries nearby. Especially recommend those around San Carlos and Palo Alto both very close by. While it isn't a... More

ABVI in San Carlos is an excellent location for my business trips. I have been staying here every week since January of this year. As I am in the construction business and am managing night crews as well as day crews, I am coming and going at all odd hours. Bipin and his wife Vibha have been very cooperative with... More

Americas Best Value Inn in San Carlos, CA is an excellent value. Although the hotel is $20-30 less than other hotels in the area, this hotel is clean and well kept. Everything works, the manager is available and friendly, and it's convenient to local restaurants and to Starbucks.

I can't believe that this place is rated number one in San Carlos. We stayed two nights here in April, 2014, What a mistake!! On the positive I can say that check in did not take very long. It was after we got to the room that the fun started. The safe was high on the wall above the closet... More

ABVI San Carlos is hosted by Bipin & his lovely wife Vibha. I say host as they make you "feel" like family. Each is outstanding! I have stayed with them for almost 6 weeks & it has been a great experience & pleasure. Nice room, fast wifi, refrig, microwave, newer flat screen with a ton of channels including music choice....
