I stayed here June 26 - 29, 2015 for an event at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. It was a great location between San Francisco, the venue, and the coast. The staff was super helpful...especially Lawrence. The rooms were very clean and quiet and the continental breakfast, while nothing fancy, did the job well. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Due to a reservation controversy prior to check-in, we were told we had to change rooms for the remainder of our recent stay at Country Inn & Suites in San Carlos. When we voiced our displeasure to the hotel staff, the General Manager, Parry Bir, told us there was nothing he could do about the situation. He told us it... More

He canceled our last three nights and we are now in San Carlos/San fransisco looking for a place to... More

We recently stayed in San Carlos for a family event and were very pleased with our stay at the Country Inn & Suites and will return again if the need arises. The rooms are nicely decorated with quality furnishings and amenities. The hospitality was great. Generous breakfast and snacks provided at front desk.

Stayed here on business for 3 nights. It is well situated near the freeway but not so close you can hear it. It is also very close to the San Carlos Caltrain station which is very handy if you want to go into SFO or the AT&T Park. It's a small three story hotel that is nicely maintained. Check in... More
