I'm impressed that you have changed to all paper cups and plates for breakfast. It's so unfortunately that people don't pay attention to the recycle bins you put out in the breakfast area. Thank you for the great cookies in the afternoon. Nice to come back to a warm yummy snack. It's time to flip those mattresses. In my room... More

Overall very clean and friendly hotel. Next to the San Carlos airport. It's of the freeway and down a side road. Has a Burger King next door. The rooms were clean and no issues. Limited free breakfast which was nice. Eggs were just ok and sasuage patties were tasty. Juice, cereal and other items were available. Free parking available.

There isn't anything particularly special to say about the hotel. We stayed here because the airline put us up here. Burger King and a Steakhouse within walking distance. You'll have to taxi/Uber to get other places if you don't have a car. The room was clean, breakfast was included.

Antonio G, General Manager at Fairfield Inn & Suites San Francisco San Carlos, responded to this review

Dear CGINCG, Thank you for writing a review on the hotel. I'm sorry that the airline put you up at this hotel. I will be contacting the airlines to better screen their customers so that other hotel guests will not be experiencing what you endured. Thank you again and have a good day. More

We had to stop next to San Carlos airport so we knew about the "bad" location of this hotel, but the noise was not that bad after all. The rooms were standard American rooms, just like an holiday inn. It was clean and well maintained. My main disappointment was the wifi wich was slow as hell. Took me almost 15... More

Staying here from time to time based price and availability. 2 needs for business are ok. Don't like the bath setup. Beds are too soft. Positive thing is if your travel for work, you can get what u need with included breakfast: coffee, juice, scrambled eggs, toast, fruits, bagels, yoghurt. It is a average hotel.

This was a perfectly nice hotel for our very brief stay after leaving San Francisco and before traveling to Santa Barbara. My daughter and I used the fitness center and appreciated the cleanliness.

I'm a loyal Marriott Platinum member so have come to expect a level of consistency across properties where I travel for business or vacations. This hotel was very disorganized.

I stayed for a week for business and the staff was very helpful with directions to local dining and fixing issues with my billing. The location is great because it is close to areas north and south on the 101 as well as local businesses, so it was easy to get around to different areas of town. Downtown San Carlos... More
