Its a very small hotel/inn. Very clean, free WiFi, free simple breakfast with freshly brewed Starbucks coffee, assortment of tea, orange juice, friendly & helpful staff especially Melite. We were so impressed how knowledgeable she Is, She gave us all the places that we should visit according to geographic location with corresponding places to eat. Since we mentioned that we also would like to go to Napa, she mentioned Sterling Vineyards & Castelo de Amorosa as one of her favorite wineries. Very good recommendations and we had a great time visiting those wineries. We commend Melite for her professionalism, friendliness, helpfulness , & very charming, a great asset to the company. We definitely recommend this hotel/inn.

Good clean rooms. No major amenities other than TV in the room unless you get a kitchenette room. Near Cal Train tracks and right on El Camino Real so it can be noisy. Very friendly staff. Rica always has a smile and a great attitude. Ricardo and Eric are always helpful.

This motel has been modernized with an art theme, Life is Art. Convenient location with wide choice of restaurants and stores on nearby Laurel Street. Staff is very friendly. Room was clean with newish tile floor and updated bath. Good light, tv, and outlets. It could use more clear flat surfaces for luggage and stuff. Maybe another luggage rack. Train noise but not bad for us and no horns. Noisy shower in neighboring room and construction behind building. We would stay here again. Box breakfast was very nice. Yogurt donut apple egg. Coffee tea in room and lobby.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with family

Good and basic hotel in the San Carlos/Redwood City area. Rooms are not big but comfortable and clean, and certainly enough for 1-2 people. The hotel is easy to get to and from, and located a few minutes walk from San Carlos's main area of restaurants and coffee places. Instead of breakfast, they provide a box with minimal food (a yogurt, a an apple, and some pastry), which is not really an alternative for breakfast, but I didn't expect much anyway as the hotel's rate was relatively low.
