Good enough

We were there for only one night and it served the purpose. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Negatives: very limited parking, we left and came back and had to park in the back where there was an alley. Breakfast was very limited and not fresh, we did not eat.

San Carlos visit

Train & traffic noise even with double windows. Parking can be a challenge, not enough spaces & very tight. Good for very short stay.

Ok place.

The hotel is ok but lots of noise from street. Breakfast is nothing more than coffee and cereal w some yogurt. Good wifi and decent amount of channels on tv. Place is ok if you get a good rate. I paid $48/night with a promo code. Wouldn't pay their book rate for what the place is.

Cutting corners but tolerable

Good: Clean room, good mini-fridge and microwave and TV. OK breakfast for the price. Meh: Thin bath towels, you can almost see through them. Bad: Front desk closes at 9pm! If you have an issue to address after 9pm, forget it. They won't answer the phone. IT ISN'T A REAL HOTEL UNLESS SOMEONE IS MANNING THE DESK 24/7. Things happen at night that need to be addressed when they happen. Like late luggage delivery. Or cancellations and rescheduling.

Decent Stay

Overall a decent hotel. Right next to El Camino Real so potential to be noisy but I noticed they double windowed the street facing windows, with shades between the windows and curtains inside as well...good idea. Room was OK, clean, bright bath area which I like, free wireless, limited parking, good value.

Staff could have made the stay better

So as you might guess this is just a motel, no frills which is fine. I was given a room one of only two that sits right on the busy and very loud street, El Camino Real. When I checked out in the morning I was greeted by a nice man and I asked him, "were you sold out last night" in which he replied no. I asked, then why would you ever actually put someone in that room right on the street if you didn't need to? He just said I should have come in to request a change of room. I did check in at a normal time but just dropped off my bag and didn't make it back to the room until after midnight and didn't want to be outside ringing a bell alone at the walk up window. Point being please if you get this room 101 or 201 Do Not accept it, you'll regret it I promise! Other than this it was clean and served it's purpose just with a little less sleep than I'd have liked.

Americas best value...

Clean but dated motel. Give three stars b/c it was very close to where we were had an appointment (downtown San Carlos) and b/c it was 80 bucks...a great deal in the Bay area. Otherwise, an ordinary motel.

Probably got my money's worth

Towels were thin, room not very clean. Glad the fan would stay on all night and not come on & off, so we had "white noise" to drown outside noise out. Probably wouldn't stay there again. The breakfast was a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT--o.j., coffee, and packaged Danish. Never had a poorer breakfast at a motel.

three day trip

Location was not bad, bathrooms were dirty and the carpet had stains. Parking was an issue late at night as some of their spaces were taken by some construction stuff. Staff was friendly.
