First of all, this place is in no way a "hotel", but is a clean "old-school" type of motel (in a good way).
I noticed a couple of negative reviews complaining about pricing and "safety" issues. I can guarantee you will not find a less expensive alternative in this area (at least, not one you'd want to stay in). As for the "safety" issue, well, just read the most recent negative review, and decide for yourself. After staying at this property, the complaint seems totally without merit.
Though the San Carlos is located on a busy street, we did not experience any issues with traffic noise. The room was pleasant, and the furnishings seemed nicely updated, along with the overall decor. Everything worked well. There is only a desk, so if you bring your own food to the room, be aware that there is no table to utilize (only the desk).
The only complaint we had during our stay was that the ceiling above us seemed poorly insulated from the sounds of the travellers upstairs. In the morning, we heard constant footsteps, and so we weren't able to sleep in as long as we might have liked. If/when we return, we will ask for an upstairs room, or one near the lobby (where there is no second floor).
In summary, this place represents a fair value, and you can tell the managment is making an effort to provide a pleasant place to stay.
