We had to stop next to San Carlos airport so we knew about the "bad" location of this hotel, but the noise was not that bad after all. The rooms were standard American rooms, just like an holiday inn. It was clean and well maintained. My main disappointment was the wifi wich was slow as hell. Took me almost 15... More

Staying here from time to time based price and availability. 2 needs for business are ok. Don't like the bath setup. Beds are too soft. Positive thing is if your travel for work, you can get what u need with included breakfast: coffee, juice, scrambled eggs, toast, fruits, bagels, yoghurt. It is a average hotel. Ask for room on the... More

This was a perfectly nice hotel for our very brief stay after leaving San Francisco and before traveling to Santa Barbara. My daughter and I used the fitness center and appreciated the cleanliness. The location was easily accessible from the freeway and we enjoyed our breakfast the next morning before getting back on the road. The room and entire facility... More

I'm a loyal Marriott Platinum member so have come to expect a level of consistency across properties where I travel for business or vacations. This hotel was very disorganized. I knew it wouldn't be a typical experience when we checked in late at night and front lobby was closed and had to call the manager to come from somewhere to... More

As part of our family California road trip, I picked up this hotel as our San Fransisco hotel and we stayed there 3 nights. It is a very good selection for the price and location. It is a short drive to everywhere you would choose to go : downtown, airport, Silicon Valley, The Great Mall (outlets). Rooms was clean, good... More

I stayed for a week for business and the staff was very helpful with directions to local dining and fixing issues with my billing. The location is great because it is close to areas north and south on the 101 as well as local businesses, so it was easy to get around to different areas of town. Downtown San Carlos... More

If we go back to San Francisco, no doubt we will stay here again for the price and location . Central to everything, SFO airport, downtown , and tech companies in San Jose area . We are here for our son's basketball tournament and all the hotels near SFO airport are very expensive. But I have to admit, I was... More

The San Carlos Fairfield Inn is tucked between the 101 freeway, a heliport and a general aviation airport, but I was never bothered by any noise. The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating -- even calling to remind me that I had a shuttle scheduled to my meeting. The basic room is basic, clean and had a refrigerator ,... More
