Starting with the extremely gracious service at the front desk (Michael on our first evening, Lawrence the next morning), and continuing with a clean and comfortable room, an overall pleasing physical facility, and an above-average breakfast, this was an excellent stay.

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the last three years. I have stayed here for booth business and pleasure. The rates are very good for Nor Cal hotels and it is located centrally to many touristy areas, and for me, close to where I need to do business in Nor Cal. The staff is excellent and accommodating.

Hotel is very nice as it is very near to shopping places in San Carlos. Caltrain and BART stations are nearby. Breakfast served is good. Rooms are clean. Hotel is perfect for families or solo travellers.
