We arrive from the inland at 10pm and decided to stay in this hotel after a check of three others around the corner. We wanted to stay in Redwood City but San Carlos is prettier. It is a new hotel, very good decorated, good breakfast and good parking. It is mainly used by executives that visit Cupertino zone that is... More

This hotel offers modern interiors and clean. There are good dinning options in the surrounding areas. Front desk person (when checking in) could have spoken better as he was just mumbling through. Although the hotel is nice as it is, for the rates you paid, it's average comparing to other hotels in this rate level.

Well it wouldn't be your first choice for a vacation. While plugged in between El Camino, Taco Bell, a gaz station and Caltrain track - this place is just fine to crash on your business trip to the Valley. They have parking, the Caltrain station is 5 min walk, free coffee 24h and 50 Mbit Wi-Fi. The free breakfast is... More

Very clean and modern hotel. Bathroom was big. Plenty ot towels. AC worked well. Mini Fridge. Good internet. No issues. Free parking. Not much around location but close to SFO and Stanford. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

I was impressed with this place overall, from the service the decor of the room and look of the building and location. There are fast food and upscale restaurants right outside of the hotel and others within a three minute drive. They serve a complimentary full breakfast every morning which surprised me. There is a mall and all sorts of... More

Excellent value, great location and nice and clean hotel. I was totally enjoyed by the employees and atmosphere. Right in the middle of where you wanted to be in San Carlos. Hotel was clean, quick and efficient!

I wish the hotel would have been closer to Palo Alto, which is where my son lives , but the experience made it all worth it. This is the third time we have been to san Francisco and by far the best place. We have stayed at other hotels for approximately the same amount but this value is by far... More

very good Location, The Hotel has been improved a lot over the last year. The rooms are modern and the breakfast area is more efficient. Variety of items served is better. People working there are very friendly and always eager the help. When we need extra pillows or have to check out late, they gave us an extra hour (at... More

I found the hotel to be comfortable, clean and modern. The staff was friendly. The TV and internet worked well. The hotel is about 12 miles south of the SF airport. The drive to the airport did not take long at 6:30 am on Sunday. Breakfast was good. No complaints at all.
