You not only get to see San Carlos but also Redwood City as well. The location is great far as shopping, site seeing and wonderful places to have a meal. If you're into historical monuments both city have fascinating landmarks to see for free.

For the price, definitely not worth it. They will try to nickel and dime you to death. Average to poor service. Poor quality of kitchen supplies. Expected much better for the price and area it is located in. I had to go to lobby to get my own kitchen supplies, they had only spoons and forks, no knives. Looks like...

This is a very basic hotel and if you are not getting a phenomenal deal I would not pay the rack rate. The interior is in need of upgrades and housekeeping is lacking. I checked in for a four night stay and given a room facing the parking lot. The location of the room was very quiet which I liked....

I walked in the lobby and said to the clerk "I have a reservation. Without asking my name, or confirmation number, or even looking at the register, he said "No you don't". I said, calmly, "yes, I do". He replied "No you don't! People think they have reservations all the time and they don't". I said my name and asked...

This hotel is awesome. It is very easy to get to from the freeway. But what really sets the place apart from other Extended Stay's are the employees. They truly do their best to make sure that hote guests have a comfortable stay.

Hairs inside fridge, disgusting!, one of the hairs was curly, which origin I can only guess, a few ants invading the kitchen, restroom then moved onto my luggage, that is not something I look forward to dealing with while traveling and paying for lodging.

Incompetent front desk at check in where manager was trying to juggle supervising new staff while answering phones and helping check people in. He said he was "multi-tasking" but in reality he was just frustrating all parties involved.

I booked this property on behalf of multiple colleagues for business. After months of patronizing the hotel, I realized that they overcharged me by over $4000!!!!!

I agree with the Theft by foreign Hands review. They sure take but the quality is cheep and the attitude is poor! The Handicap room was not ADA compliant for starters and not one safety bar in the bathroom or shower. Was a regular room with a doorbell is all. Not even a larger bathroom for someone in a wheelchair....
