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

Hotel staff is very helpful and courteous. Rates are decent for the area given the demand. Rooms are clean and setup well. It's right off the 101 freeway, so there is some noise. The breakfast bar is included and basic. Wi Fi is included and works well. Located close to downtown San Carlos which has good restaurants. In N Out... More

It was a decent hotel. Rooms and common places were clean. Staff was polite and friendly. I wished swimming to be an indoor swimming pool because it was windy but I guess many people like outdoor pools. Breakfast is included in the stay charge which I liked. As compared to other elegant hotels charging the same amount (279 for day... More

We stayed here with a group for a discounted rate. The whole building had a weird smell, both in hallways and rooms. Had to open the window to get some relief. Very cramped small room for 4 people. People in the common hallways left dirty socks and a half eaten burrito or taco on the floor for anyone to step... More

Thank you for writing a review of the hotel. I'm sorry to read about your bad experience at the property. I'm not sure why a guest would leave stuff in the hallways which is inconsiderate of other guests. The rooms are standard rooms with 2 queen beds. We are one of the few hotels that actually offer 2 queen beds... More

Nice hotel as all of the ones from the Marriott chain are. Room 319 has a really nice view of the airport. Hotel staff was courteous and nice. Rooms are well-kept and clean and comfortable. Breakfast is your normal fair. Nothing out of this world or nothing negative either.

This was a standard Fairfield Inn. It was very clean and well maintained. The staff were exceptionally nice. The bed was comfortable, if a little soft. The AC was only moderately noisy. I was on the third (top) floor, but the shower pressure was still strong. The hotel is adjacent to the San Mateo Airport, but the planes' noise was... More

This was more a motel than a hotel, but it was functional and the staff were very helpful. Everywhere was very clean and the breakfast was adequate with a selection of cereals, bread/bagels, waffles, fruit, yoghurt, scrambled and hard boiled eggs and sausage patties, juice and coffee. The pool is outdoors so not usable in the colder months. The room... More
