Great hotel approx. 20mi outside of SF in the hip town of San Carlo, which has many great restaurants. Well furnished hotel, good sized rooms, reasonable breakfast choice. Must mention Lawrence from front of house for excellent customer service and friendly advice. Stay here if you need a good hotel outside of SF or a hotel for an early flight... More

Stayed here for two nights recently. Wasn't sure of what to expect because of some mixed reviews. I was pleasantly surprised - we really liked this property. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with tons of electrical outlets for devices. Internet was good too. The other thing we liked were the common areas. Business center for printing out boarding passes and... More

This was a nice hotel in which to stay. I appreciated the sleek, modern lobby, atrium and room. It was very clean and bright. The staff was helpful, and the breakfast was a very nice buffet (no custom cooking) with hot and cold items, including fresh fruit salad. The room was nice with a sleep number mattress. The price was... More

We stayed here for five nights, and found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. Despite the Cal Train running behind our room, we didn’t have any noise issues. In fact, we found the place to be very quiet. Our room was big and had plenty of lighting and outlets for charging all our electronics. There was a microwave... More

If you have an early flight out of San Francisco or San Jose airports, consider this hotel in San Carlos as a convenient stop the night before. We were so impressed with the cleanliness and comfort provided here. Hotel must have been designed by a frequent traveler because the room layout is one of the best I've ever seen. Free... More

This was the first time staying at a Carlson property. The hotel is clean and the staff was good. My only complaint was the plastic glasses in the room. We did ask for wine glasses and they had them hidden! The breakfast was average and what i would expect for this type of hotel. The coffee was actually pretty decent.... More

Very adequate hotel - nothing fancy but clean and had everything you would expect from a US chain. Great location for catching the Caltrain into San Fransisco (under 10 min walk) or to the nearby shopping mall if you do not have access to a car.
