very reasonably priced, convenient location on El Camino, within walking distance of cute restaurants in downtown San Carlos and convenient to San Francisco. complimentary breakfast similar to other hotels; nothing great, but is healthy with eggs, fruit, waffles, and juice.

Pleasantly surprised with the level of quality of this hotel. Beds were clean and comfortable, free internet (although a tad slow), and great breakfast spread which even included waffles and oatmeal. Enjoyable stay. They even cared for my luggage all day while I was at the office when I showed up really early before my check in time. I recommend.
