“Great value, excellent management”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2011

I have stayed at this hotel several times and hope to continue doing so, as my needs dictate. The manager was flexible and accomodating, giving me a late checkout when I needed it. The room rates are very reasonable for the area and for the quality of the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and clean. I really like this hotel and the management.

Nice and clean, convenient location, courteous and attentive staff, and a great value. No complaint at all. Just nice and smooth. Definitely recommended.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2011

I chose this place as one of the easiest to reach places from the Kaiser Permanente hospital in Redwood City where my sister was having surgery.

The places closer in didn't seem as "safe" and user friendly.

Room was obviously clean and had been renovated in the recent past but had some minor wear.

Minor wear including: chip in bath floor tile, significant wear/staining at drain in plastic sink, swelling and warping of bath door.

Bed was surprisingly high, firm with some soft topping. Slept well.

this is the sort of motel/hotel that you drive up and park right in front, so I turned the heating unit up high on fan only and used earplugs and didn't hear a thing.

They have a pool in the parking lot and also a continental breakfast with a surprising number of choices-not just rolls and coffee.

I can't imagine staying here for a week of vacation, but if you just need a clean convenient place to sleep, it's worth the $80.

We were very pleased with the Hotel San Carlos. The room, while on the small side, was comfortably furnished and had everything we needed. There is a wonderful pool.. Most impressive was the service from Front Desk the Housekeeping Staff when I realized I had left my Blackberry and charger in the room. I called from the airport in a panic and spoke to Andy( Front Desk) who ensured--that same day--that the phone was sent back to me. It was a great relief to have such professional service when I really was in a panic.Very nice neighborhood,lots of options for restaurant near Hotel San Carlos in San Carlos Downtown.The plus was ALL ROOMS ARE NON-SMOKING. I will stay at the Hotel San Carlos again and would highly recommend it. It is a nice hotel that manages to have a high level of personal service. Bravo!

Me and my girlfriend came here on a road trip through Western USA and we have seen already a lot of Motels. This one had for the acceptable price of $80 Dollars really a very high quality - and especially what we were looking for a very high cleaning standard. For trips to San Francisco (with car) this served us really good. This is actually the first time we write a review - since we tought that they deserve it and they deserve a lot more customers. The parking was free (not like in most of the airport hotels) and the staff really nice. The continental breakfast was ok. We had some toasts and espically coffee. Its a safe area but we sadly didnt have time to enjoy the flat-tv with dish network.

Anytime again !!!



oh and the cleanlyness....even outside the patio the hallways....everything very clean

the hotel was ok.. we checked in late, around midnight.. though we called ahead of time that we will be late.. when we arrived, we had to wake up the hotel staff so we can check in, he was pleasant though and accomodating.. it was just awkward that we had to wake him up just to check in.. the room was clean and functional.. beds were ok..they had a microwave oven (thats a must for us since we travelled with a baby).. ok location just a short 5mindrive to san francisco..
