Have stayed here now for two 3-day trips in the last month working in the South Bay. Rooms are very good - clean, very quiet and comfortable. The rooms are a little small, but fine for 1 or 2 people. Bathrooms might stand a little updating, otherwise no complaints! Beautiful courtyard for relaxing after work, sharing a take-out meal or...

I have stayed in this hotel at least 5 times, and will again this month. Location is wonderful, it is in downtown Los Gatos, and it is so easy to walk everywhere. Front desk staff is helpful. Could do better on breakfast, what is available is basically granola bars and coffee, but with so many good breakfast places nearby, it...

Delightfully old fashioned style. Our room was clean and pleasant and we couldn't ask for a better placement in Los Gatos. We originally hoped to stay closer to our Sunday brunch with friends in Aptos, but things were either booked or over the top price wise. The Garden Inn does in fact have nice plantings around its charming collection of...

My wife and I attended a wedding near Ben Lomond and wanted to stay overnight in the general area after the reception. During peak season the hotel rates are ridiculously high, but the Garden Inn offered a room rate that was far less than half of the other options we could find. The inn has a nice feel to it,...

Comfortable, quiet, well equipped room, great customer and housekeeping service. Lovely location, lovely patios and gardens. We always stay here when we visit our home town. This is a family run hotel with history. A modest hotel with loads of charm and calm, near to everything. They have great coffee all day long, and around the corner are coffee shops...

The Lamborghini dealership is across the street and Bentley is next door. But it's just a basic old-school American motel. Rooms are comfy, Internet just fine. No breakfast, but “Southern Kitchen” is just across the street, and is just fine for that.

Nice hotel, great rates considering we are right downtown. We are in town for the weekend to see some wineries. Nice grounds, nice staff free parking and close to walking paths. Rooms are average - but what more do you need to do other then sleep when so much is so close at hand?

“We had Room 42 which is at the rear of the complex. It was surprisingly quiet.”

“The only thing wrong is they don't have king size beds so I booked two adjoining rooms”

“Read the description of the rooms to ask for the style and location best suited. Reserve early. See website photos.”

“I loved my room with the full kitchen because I was staying almost a week. And the lovely rose garden right outside my door totally made my day each morning! Air conditioning worked great, all appliances were in good repair, and there were plenty of clean linens -- If I needed anything, I just asked one of the housekeepers, and it magically appeared! At $154/night for their most expensive fully-equipped room, you won't find a better deal anywhere in the area! I am a very light sleeper, but my room was exceedingly quiet. I slept in nearly every morning past 7:00! The parking at night can be a challenge, so I had to park in a handicapped spot twice because I came back to the hotel quite late. But I would just get up early and move the car before 8:00 a.m. when other spaces would open up as people left.”
