      Very friendly management, room was clean, value for the money.

      Caltrain is just over the street - so train noise but decently blocked by double windows.

      The room was fine for the price.

      Breakfast. Continental Breakfast included . Coffee was terrible, did not have fresh milk, and all they offered was cheap,sweet, individually packaged pastries . But for the price it was still worth it.

      Price . location, decent value for money, close to train tracks!!

      Close to train tracks, windows were not able to open, room kind of stuffy.

      Location was not as posted with internet site. Which shows it near the city limits between Belmont and San Carlos. Reality is 1 to 2 mi south on El Camino Real. When called for directions the hotel staff seemed only able to give directions as if we were coming from the south.

      Location and friendliness of staff.

      Do not like having a first floor room where I can't have privacy if I open curtains.

      Booked.net showed this hotel as about 10 miles from Half Moon Bay, where I was working. Turned out to be more like 30 miles. It took 45 minutes instead of the twelve represented in the listing. Very angry with Booked.net.

      Nicely decorated retro room. Problem bathroom window left open by staff. It had no screen and we didn't notice it till next day. Staff should point out locking windows for sake of safety.

      I love being able to get a truly nonsmoking room (because the entire city of San Carlos is like that) without paying 5-star prices. Spa was clean, hot, didn't have strong odor like some (amount of chlorine was just right to kill germs without beibg overwhelming), with strong jets. Great for someone on bicycling tour. Location was super too, on major bus line and half mile from train station, easy to get to on transit as well as by car (I don't drive), very convenient to groceries and restaurants. Remarkably quiet for being on main drag. Free Internet in room worked fine and is really free (no gimmicks). Fullsize iron and ironing board, hair dryer, in room.

      Don't bother saying "free breakfast" when it's just weak coffee, small pre-pack oj, and tiny! Commercial brand pastry; there are other motels in the area that are dirtier and less comfortable that have full breakfasts, but I prefer a good night's rest at a motel which I got because of the cleanliness, quiet and comfort. Play up your superior lodging if you cant compete on the real breakfast level. Encourage guests to buy breakfast items at nearby Trader Joes for microwaving in room. The cleanliness of room, lack of strong, allergenic scents, convenience to many excelkent dining options, quiet and comfort including a high quality indoor spa and sauna, are sufficient selling points. Play up the all-nonsmoking and spa, proximity to bicycling routes as "for health enthusiasts"; if you want to offer breakfast, make it yogurt and muffins or something with a "health" reputation. Walking distance to dozens of dining options. Don't bother deceptively trying to compete on a secondary service you're not really set up for.

      Convenient

      The staff was rude and ungracious. After telling the clerk I needed a ground floor room, he said there were none left. And then he said he had one for $10 extra. Does that make sense?

      I liked the amenities like the frig, micro, table & chairs, sauna and whirlpool. Next door to Trader Joe's which was convenient. Clean and realitively new carpet counters etc. Desk staff was accommedating.

      A little noisy with busy street and train tracks. Breakfast was weak. Thin walls..

      Had to stay out of my apartment one night, so I was looking for somewhere close (San Carlos) and inexpensive - this fit the bill. It's not real pretty and there was another guest who was rather loud. But even though I had the room next to the loud guest I wasn't able to hear him once I was in my room. Lamp shade was all cracked inside, bathroom was just ugly, no screen on the bathroom window ... but it was clean like a hospital and the people running it were just really really nice. Satisfied.

      Needs a new lampshade in the overhanging light fixture (one there was all broken inside). Needs a screen on the bathroom window. Tub stall is one of the worst installations of the ugliest faux, dark, putrid, tan and blue marble I have ever seen. The tv, microwave, frig. Stand looks like it was about to fall over. Pictures on the walls looked old and faded, so they added to the drabness of the decor instead of brightening it up. The faucet was difficult to control. It went from nothing to full force even with me trying with all my might to control it. Had to fix the toilet several times to keep it from running.

      Too close to the train station, quite a bit of train horn noise. Also, the sliding glass door was broken and could not be closed. I did not notice this until the third day. I was lucky that no one entered my room while I was away.
