LiA Hotel, San Carlos
Horrible for the price!
Rundown motel with slight renovations. It certainly is not a hotel. Hair on pillows, mold and mildew in the shower, floors looked dirty. A bathroom towel was still spiked with dirt. Another towel fell on the floor- when I picked it up it was covered in black from the dirt on the bathroom floor. Filthy!

Awesome Art Vibe
We were very impressed with the theme, the decor, and the friendliness of The LiA. What a lovely hotel. The Buddha Board was super cool, and our son loved painting on it!

Less than wonderful experience.
Good service. Property was renovated to an extent but the building is very old, and right next to industrial buildings with very little privacy short of blacking out the one window and light source to the room. Neighbor’s tv and shower very audible through the walls. I was woken up at 2am by a garbage truck working right outside of my window which woke me in a startle.

Wow!!! I’m a first timer to stay at Lia Hotel and that was my reaction, when I checked in, deep down to cleanliness was an awesome first impression. I usually don’t take a bubble bath unless it’s in my own tub, but I couldn’t pass up a bubble bath as the tub was so clean and inviting. Great hotel!!! 👍
