“Decent Place for just Sleeping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2007

Not a bad place to get some sleep if you are close to the airport. The fitness center is just two machines, but the breakfast is free. The beds are a bit uncomfortable, but in general a decent place if all you are looking to do is get some sleep. they have an outdoor pool that can get a bit rowdy at night.

Convienient location, relatively new construction, helpful front desk, good complimentary breakfast, very clean....but right next to a small airport located at the end of a runway! The days we were there, we were awakened by small prop planes warming up their engines for takeoff. Ask for room facing highway instead of airport.

  • Liked — the complimentary breakfast
  • Disliked — the noise from the airport
  • Stayed May 2007, traveled with family

I needed to make a last minute reservation for a quick business trip to the Bay Area (San Carlos Area). This was my first visit to Marriott's Fairfield Inn, having been to their Renaissance, Marriott, Residence Inn and Courtyard locations this year.
The staff was friendly and courteous. The room was simple with no frills, but it was clean, roomy and included a refrigerator which is a nice feature to have. The bed was comfortable. The rate included a Continental Brkfst which was okay. What I liked about this property was that it was quiet while being right next to the Bayshore 101 freeway. For the rate, it was better than expected and I'd stay there again.

The Fairfield Inn in San Carlos, CA is a decent budget hotel located next to the San Carlos Municipal Airport. It's location is convenient to the Peninsula cities south of San Francisco. Our room with two large queen beds was clean and comfortable with good lighting. Amenities included free high speed internet (wired) in the room and wireless internet in the lobby, a medium-sized refrigerator and a small microwave. The TV included a reasonable selection of cable channels as well as the usual pay-per-view fare. Our room was located on the side of the hotel adjacent to the airport runway. The airport is a fairly busy general aviation field, and operations start about 7 AM so this hotel is not a good choice for day sleepers. However, there is essentially no airport activity at night, so the room was quiet after dark. The free continental breakfast was adequate, but not great. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall, this hotel provided very good value for the money.
