The facility was spotless. The room was clean and well maintained. Dish TV provided. Great selection in the breakfast bar many choices we available from scrambled eggs , waffles , cereal. The location was perfect, close to freeway access. We had a good dinner near by on the water.

Stayed here for business as our offices are in Menlo Park and Redwood City. This hotel was a short drive to both locations. Hotel is clean, staff are great, breakfasts were yummy. Location is awesome, you can walk to numerous bars and restaurants and the train station is a short walk also so you can go into San Fran quite... More

Good hotel and very good breakfast. Why do they need 200 characters for the review? I am writing just to fill it and never reach 200 characters, never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever

A mc donalds across the street but to my knowledge not much else around within walking distance . On a busy street close to the hwy 101 . Small pool... More

I would most certainly recommend this hotel! I had to fly in for a business meeting, and needed a place to relax before and after the meeting, so driving by I saw this hotel and decided to stop by. The hotel was very welcoming, the front desk agent came running as soon as he saw me walk up to the... More

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
