2.5 star hotel
Area: San Carlos
2.71 mi from Hillsdale Shopping Center
Best Rooms: The Inn is surrounded by its parking lot. Therefore the rooms at the Inn offer limited views. The pool is to one side of the Inn therefore not visible from any of the rooms.
Best Rooms: The property doesn't really offer any nice views, as it's right next to the freeway and another hotel.
