“Very good value”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

I'm always a bit leary of certain budget motel chains like ABVI, but I stayed here three nights last week and I was very satisfied. Driving into central SF (25 miles) can take nearly an hour during rush hour but for me that was a fair trade-off for such a clean, inexpensive room. (SFO is a 20 minutes drive.) Light sleepers might find the sound of street traffic and commuter trains a challenge but otherwise this is a decent location, especially since a Trader Joe's is just 100 yards away. TJ's great for stocking up the mini-frig and avoiding the sad looking continental breakfast that's offered here. I really can't speak to the front desk service but the housekeeping was good.

We got in almost close to midnight and an Indian guy attended to us. He was not friendly at all. He sounded pissed at being bothered at that time of the night to attend to us. His tone when explaining where our room is was not something one would like to hear after a 12-hour flight.

The room is clean and beds are comfortable. Bathroom smells good and also very clean. Carpets looks like its being cleaned everyday.

Location is great as it's close to the freeway. Easy to go north to San Francisco, or south to San Jose.

It's a great place to stay . The staff is so professional and house-keeping is of top class. Being so close to the Redwood shores makes it a best place to stay for an official trip. The manager and his wife make me feel very comfortable with their hospitality and family type spirit.If you are looking for an affordable, comfortable, quiet hotel close to restaurants, shopping, parks and freeways this is the place for you. To me it was almost a second home . I stayed over here for 15 days with peace of mind and pleasure.

I got to my hotel room on Wednesday Janury 30th, found a very nice suite with jacuzzi tub and a large king bed, the room was excellent and very clean, the manager was outsatnding in providing local information.

This is by far the best hotel I have stayed in and the value makes it even better.

Thank you for your hospitality Mr. Patel it was much apreeciated.

The Americas Best Value Inn San Carlos is the best bang for your buck in the area. If you are looking for an affordable, comfortable, quiet hotel close to restaurants, shopping, parks and freeways this is the place for you. The location puts you in the middle of San Francisco and San Jose, close to the San Mateo Bridge as well as the Dumbarton bridge for East Bay travel. The Managers /Owners and staff are friendly, helpful and always accommodating to me on all my stays throughout the years. Free WiFi, flatscreen TV's and a sauna. If you like low-traffic, quiet, clean, comfortable and affordable, then this is the place for you.
