Rename the place, install a new sign, and paint. It doesn’t change the ambience of 1940’s motor lodge; water cascading through pipes from a flushed toilet, guests walking on squeaky floors above, trains passing in the night, a bed that sounds like newspaper with tiny...More
Good location, near Laurel St. So that you can go out of dinner or walk around. Room had a work area which was useful as I needed to work. Still the place a little depressing. Remodelling had only gone so far and parts of the...More

Inspired by the unexpected beauty found in life's everyday experiences and interactions, LiA Hotel is a breath of fresh air for travelers who seek to infuse their lives with art. An acronym for Life is Art, LiA …MoreHotel takes its mission seriously, featuring original photography of San Carlos as well as canvases for guests to use (coming soon!) and in-room Buddha boards for bursts of unbridled creativity. A handful of LiA guest rooms are creatively equipped Inspiration Spaces, where bright ideas bubble up as if by magic. Add comforts like complimentary continental breakfast and free coffee round-the-clock and it's easy to see why LiA Hotel is San Carlos' favorite new hotel. Less

Yes! Absolutely. The San Carlos CalTrain station is about a 10 min walk from the hotel. From there you can take CalTrain to Palo Alto easily. There are two Palo Alto stops - one in downtown Palo Alto near Stanford and one on California Ave. TripAdvisor won't allow me to post website links but if you search Caltrain you can view the southbound schedules on there.
Hope to see you stay with us! We've got newly and fully renovated rooms and host of free ammenties!
