      The people on the desk helped us get a shuttle to the airport when I was about to give up. The pool looked inviting, although we didn't use it.

      There was noise from children playing in the pool at 8:00 a.m. in the morning.

    • Older travelers

      Reasonable rates clean and quiet. Pool and grounds excellent. Location close to family in Menlo Park.

      Up front empty lot and chain link fence unattractive. Basic budget breakfast

      nice, helpful staff. comfortable facilities, well-laid out. obviously an older hotel, but nicely redone. set back among large trees; a pleasant departure from the big box monoliths we are accustomed to seeing these days. first floor units have small patios that abut the pool. very nice indeed.

      We really enjoyed the king size bed and the outside pattio from our room.

      A simple motel style Inn- nice location and helpful staff.

      clean quite rooms, good location,friendly staff

      small rooms, breakfast items not replenished

      Good location and off street so the room was pretty quiet. I also liked the patio off the room and the lovely pool (although I didn't swim in it).

      They forgot to clean my room! I came in late that night and didn't bother, when I mentioned it to the desk clerk when I checked out she didn't even care! There aren't that many rooms at red cottage and I left very early that day. There is no excuse and a "sorry" would have been nice. The buffet breakfast is also quite forgettable. It's an okay hotel, but I wouldn't call it "wonderful."

    • Family with children

      The hotel is elegant and clean. The rooms are big and the bathrooms new and pretty huge. Classy facilities, polite staff that can also help you plan your trip to San Francisco if that's something you might find intresting.

      No elevator, if you have a lot of suitcases that might be an issue but you can always ask for a room on the ground floor. No big deal

    • Older travelers

      Cozy and comfortable with everything I needed at an affordable price.

      No on site restaurant. Internet was slow, especially when trying to watch Netflix on my iPad.

    • Older travelers

      Very nice interiors. Fresh colors and design. Very like what one would expect in Silicon Valley. Includes breakfast! Convenient. Very "California"

    • Group of friends
      8.2

      Good quality rooms with a personal touch, the Red Cottage Inn was located well for us as we were visiting family in San Carlos and driving into San Francisco itself on a couple of days. Not too far from anywhere. The railroad was a bit disturbing on the first night but having had long days each day after our arrival, we were far too tired to notice them!

    • Single

      Location, good use of older building to install more uptodate facilities, helpful staff.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      The staff was friendly and the rooms were quiet.

      The entrance is extremely hard to find and to enter is almost impossible in traffic. The sign is hidden until you are almost upon the entrance.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Comfortable beds and pillows clean rooms, breakfast snacks.
