The room, business center and attentive staff made this an outstanding wedding anniversary weekend adventure. San Francisco dining and dancing venues were just thirty minutes away. And, couldn't help but visit "Max's" in Burlingame for lunch! And, breakfast was thrown in, too ... A real breakfast, not just a croissant & coffee!

This hotel had all the expected amenities and it was located in a convenient place for activities in San Carlos. An area with restaurants was just a few blocks away. The breakfast area was p,easing and the food was good.

I would recommend this hotel. It is clean, comfortable, good hot breakfast and a wonderful staff. The staff went out of their way to answer our questions and provide us with great service. The only downside is that their is some road noise and we had to sleep with our window closed.

We enjoyed this hotel very much. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was very good. The afternoon snacks are also a plus. San Carlos is a great city and this hotel is located right next to the main area.

A comfortable, clean, friendly hotel that is located between San Carlos and Belmont. It is recently remodeled and has upgraded the lobby and breakfast area. We have stayed there often and will continue to do so.

The staff is completely disengage as if to do the minimum effort required not to get fired. They double charge my credit card. When I called the person on the phone was dismissive. She said she will talk to her manager and that he will call me back asap. Still waiting for his call back...

Dear Renzo Z I apologize for any inconvenience caused, however I was not in office when you had called and since my staff cannot make the decision in the case of no-show and crediting or waiving any charges without my authority. They had no option but to get your name and phone number to call back and which I did... More

Around 40 mins in stopper train to San Francisco. Close to station (5 mins stroll). Close to restaurants (10 mins stroll).

Breakfast was excellent. Only drawback was they did... More
