I stay here primarily because I have family in San Carlos. I hang out with them after work and I can stay late since the hotel is close by. It's a fairly nice room with a comfortable bed and pillows.

I stay here when I come from out of town because I can't find a decent hotel, at a reasonable price in the city I am here to visit. It's convenient, in a safe area and very reasonable priced. Rooms are nice, comfy and I'm only there to sleep and eat breakfast.

Good hotel in decent area with some good restaurants nearby. Kabul restaurant is 2 mins walk and was amazing! Breakfast was okay but porridge (oatmeal) was badly made which was a shame. Hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. Rooms and lounges weee clean and comfortable. Outdoor pool was filthy so neither I nor the children could use it....

My favorite place to stay in the Bay Area. The beds are so comfortable and the rooms are quiet so you can get a good nights sleep. Breakfast has a wide variety to choose from and there's always coffee or tea available 24-7.
