ABVI in San Carlos is an excellent location for my business trips. I have been staying here every week since January of this year. As I am in the construction business and am managing night crews as well as day crews, I am coming and going at all odd hours. Bipin and his wife Vibha have been very cooperative with...

Americas Best Value Inn in San Carlos, CA is an excellent value. Although the hotel is $20-30 less than other hotels in the area, this hotel is clean and well kept. Everything works, the manager is available and friendly, and it's convenient to local restaurants and to Starbucks.

I can't believe that this place is rated number one in San Carlos. We stayed two nights here in April, 2014, What a mistake!! On the positive I can say that check in did not take very long. It was after we got to the room that the fun started. The safe was high on the wall above the closet...

ABVI San Carlos is hosted by Bipin & his lovely wife Vibha. I say host as they make you "feel" like family. Each is outstanding! I have stayed with them for almost 6 weeks & it has been a great experience & pleasure. Nice room, fast wifi, refrig, microwave, newer flat screen with a ton of channels including music choice....

This isn't just a typical hotel, it is a great hotel with great customer service and the manager here is great! He will go above and beyond just to accommodate needs and he called me when I had a dollar left on change and personally came up to my room to drop it off. This hotel isn't out to scam...

I'm staying here for a week, but I've been here for a full day already. Let me tell you that when I read the reviews, I wasn't too sure about what I might run into. You can say it is a typical "Indian" run hotel, but it really is not like other "Indian" run hotels I have stayed at. It...

Excellent service by the management staff. They make you feel like a person not a dollar sign. Rooms are updated and clean. It is very convenient to shopping and several restaurants. Great selection on cable and the wifi is quick and responsive. I have to brag on management and the staff again...awesome

This is the only hotel I stay in when I come to the Bay Area, and there are three reasons why. The first is how warm and hospitable the manager and his wife are. They manage a clean, well run motel. The second is that you can always count on a clean room, comfortable bed, good TV, and a great...

If you are looking for the Hilton, this is not it, but it is 1/3 the price of the Hilton as well. It is clean, and has a decent bed. It is on the main drag in San Carlos so you do get some traffic noise during rush hours and the commuter train goes by a lot during that time...

Booked this on Hotwire and it was a deal, however, it is on the main drag in San Carlos and the train tracks for commuter trains is next to the road, the noise level is very high. The room is very worn. It was clean enough but needs painting and a lot of repairing and updating. Also a parking problem....
