San Carlos Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

unusual Inn experience. Looks like an affordable place but because of it's Silicon Valley location it costs quite a lot a night. No in-room coffee maker, no shampoo, had to share 1 towel. Management was , er, different. Seems to be a husband and wife team where the husband is guarding and sentry, which was great, and His wife calls all the shots. Wife phoned me at about 10 am telling me I had to get the room serviced when She says so. Hmmm. When I checked in, there was a half finished can of cola behind something, made me wonder about how well cleaned the place could have been. Room was small, parking limited to one car. Bed was comfortable, fridge worked well as did the TV. The air conditioning unit works, but kept me awake cycling off and on all night. The second night I was ultra tired and left off the AC and slept quite well. The neighborhood was quieter than expected. I really liked that! I also liked the fact that management was farming vegetables in the flower beds, seems more intelligent that way.

Terrible hotel with dirty linens and unsafe neighborhood

Motel-style inn with about 10 rooms and off-street parking. Room was older but clean with a softer bed and foam pillows. The price was the lowest around and check-in/out was fast and friendly.

The San Carlos Inn is not a spectacular place to stay but is not terrible. It is cost efficient. The staff was accomodating and nice, but the amenities were either non-existing or poor. If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep at night, while doing other things during the day, than I recommend staying here.
