just what we needed, simple, quiet and clean
Tammy, us1 night trip with friends
Hotel San Carlos, San Carlos
Not so friendly front desk. Super comfy bed. Loud people above us every night at weird hours. Great daily service in terms of accommodating my requests ie: more towels and coffee creamer. Pool looked gross. The room and bathroom weren't as clean as I'd like but not dealbreaker and our feet got dirty from the carpet if we walked barefoot. They do have Wi-Fi which was good. They claimed continental breakfast but didn't see much of anything. Great location to walk to places. Good price. Would not stay there again though.

Convenient location, decent updates inside
This hotel (really, a motel) was convenient to meetings and Caltrain, and owners have updated the rooms fairly nicely. Good mattress; clean, modern bath. The exterior is quite old and even the balcony decks are slanted from age. In expensive Peninsula area, glad to find it for sudden business trip, but it's very difficult to EVER call a room a "good value" for the money in this area. $190 for a mid-quality motel built decades ago. P.S. Front desk service was efficient, but cold, not very welcoming. Free breakfast is minimal.

Would come back again
A little dusty. They did not change the bedsheets in my 3 days stay. Other than that it is comfortable and quiet.
