We are staying at the hotel due to medical visits at Stanford Hospital. This hotel is very quiet and clean and we have already stayed here 3 different times and will be staying at least another 2 times perhaps more.. Feel safe and secure with this hotel.

The room was very clean and well maintained.

Staff was friendly and very helpful. Because my luggage was accidentally left in Europe, the reception guy even offered me a razor and shaving creme, "not that I am saying you need shaving, but IN CASE you want them, I have them right here" :)

One minor nuisance. One morning I was still in bed at about 10am and the chambermaid knocked, then she tried to unlock (unsuccessfully). Then she knocked again and asked something in Spanish. I shouted that I am still in bed and I don't need service. She kept knocking and speaking. I shouted again. Eventually I leapt out of bed and opened the door, only in my underwear. She continued asking me something and after a few seconds we agreed on "no servicio". This needn't have happened. Not a big deal though.

The nights and especially the mornings can be a bit noisy due to the location (El Camino Real) and the hotel rooms being located around the parking area.

MartinPP, Thank you for taking the time to tell other travelers about your recent stay with us at the Best Western. I am glad to hear the staff was helpful and friendly. However, I do want to apologize for the inconvenience you experienced when housekeeping attempted to service your guest room. I have addressed the issue with my staff to prevent this situation from occurring with future guests. I hope you will consider returning to the Best Western when you return to the area. If I can be of any further assistance, please contact me back at your convenience.

Kind regards,

Easy access from El Camino Real, nice big bed with lots of pillows. Great breakfast in big room = waffles, yogurt, eggs, chopped fruit (on weekends). Fridge, microwave. The room was clean but not too large.

The staff was quite welcoming and very helpful when I needed assistance.

Only one washer and dryer.

This it the place we always stay in this area as Whole Foods is a short walk away where we buy a lot of our meals (for cheap compared to restaurants). The San Antonio Mall is also a short walk away for anything you need.

We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Get a room on the main floor with parking right outside your room. The staff was helpful with this...

The rate charged at this property was 3 times what I have paid for the same quality of accommodation at other Best Western Plus properties in the past. The staff was friendly but it seemed that since I was not a corporate customer no special attention was needed.

We stayed one night during a trip to visit family. Our room was on the first floor, facing the parking lot, which was supposedly an "upgrade". The room had an odd odor, which did not air out, and was small. Parking was limited, and we had to park quite a distance from our room. The front desk person was courteous. It was adequate for our needs.

I called the evening before - around 11:00 PM to cancel due to illness. Was told that they would not cancel because I needed to call before 6:00 PM. I do not believe this is a fair way to treat a customer. If you reserve a room do not attempt to cancel after 6:00 PM the previous day for any reason.

We recently stayed two nights at the Best Western Plus Mountain View Inn, while visiting family in the area. We stayed on the second floor on the backside of the motel, this kept us away from the traffic noise on the El Camino Real. Our room was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable, we both slept very well. The free breakfast was reasonably good, all though not kept hot. Staff was very nice and attentive to our needs. We would stay here again. The exhaust fan in the bathroom was very noisy.

Room Tip: Request a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor on the back side of the motel.
