Reviewed January 7, 2017

This hotel is easily overlooked because San Carlos is not a well known city. However, the location is great if you have business, or want to do some sightseeing, in mid-peninsula area. There is easy access to the freeway as well as to surface roads when the freeways have heavy traffic. The hotel is close to San Francisco Airport yet...

I was disappointed as most Marriott properties, even budget level, are well run and clean. As others have noted, this hotel is noisy. It is next to a busy highway, rooms are not soundproof, doors seem to slam shut with a vengeance... When I arrived, the intercom for late night entry had been unplugged! So, at 11 pm, I'm pushing...

This place must be popular with the hookers. Close to the airport. Staff that are mainly absent. Rooms with windows that open all the way. Beds that made me fear to sleep in them. And the bathroom. UGH. Luckily there's a laundry on each floor. Easier to clean the extra bodily fluids from your stripper wear. If I wasn't here...

You are forced to listen to your neighbor's TVs, phone conversations, and whatever they're doing in their bathrooms (gross) at all times. I could hear someone clearing their throat in their sink at 6am as if they were inside my room. At 12:00 midnight the next room over had their TV on at what seemed to be a normal volume,...

Dear Graham W, Thank you for writing a review on the hotel. We do apologize for the inconveniences that you encountered during the stay. The room must have been a connecting room.

I'm impressed that you have changed to all paper cups and plates for breakfast. It's so unfortunately that people don't pay attention to the recycle bins you put out in the breakfast area. Thank you for the great cookies in the afternoon. Nice to come back to a warm yummy snack. It's time to flip those mattresses. In my room...

Overall very clean and friendly hotel. Next to the San Carlos airport. It's of the freeway and down a side road. Has a Burger King next door. The rooms were clean and no issues. Limited free breakfast which was nice. Eggs were just ok and sasuage patties were tasty. Juice, cereal and other items were available. Free parking available.

There isn't anything particularly special to say about the hotel. We stayed here because the airline put us up here. Burger King and a Steakhouse within walking distance. You'll have to taxi/Uber to get other places if you don't have a car. The room was clean, breakfast was included.

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...
