“Great place for the money!”
Reviewed 27 July 2011

We stayed here for 5 nights for business and it is really a great hotel for the price. Free, hot breakfast every morning - it was delicious! The rooms are clean and the people working here (housekeeping, front desk, breakfast attendant) are extremely nice and helpful. I emphasize that the rooms are clean and this appears to be a newer (or at least very well upkept) hotel. Would definitely stay here again if i am in the area. Oh, yes, and they provide fresh cookies in the lobby every evening. Yummmm. Free high speed internet (it isn't the best but it does the trick) and two computers (mac & PC) in the lobby.

We stayed here for a week whilst attending a wedding and visiting relatives and the sights.

Our room faced El Camino Real and turned out to be very quiet in the evening and during normal sleeping hours.

The breakfast was the standard HI Exp affair with the addition of an automated pancake maker . Just push the button and two tasty cakes appear in a minute or so. Best of all, they were actually quite good.

A friendly staff and the variety of eateries nearby caused us to have a very enjoyable stay.

We'd go back!

We recently stayed at this hotel with several other family members and found it a great value. The hotel is recently remodeled and very clean and our room was large and quiet. The staff was fabulous, taking time to be sure that we had everything that we needed. Marisol in particular was most helpful and friendly. The breakfast had something for everyone and as an early morning runner I appreciated the coffee being fresh and hot at 6:00 AM. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to families as well as business travelers.

The room I was in was spotlessly clean, with great furnishings, bed, TV etc. The hotel itself is rather a strange configuration, although one that means that there is no noise going into the room from the central area.

The location is pretty so-so, it's standard business/suburban area, but easy to get to all locations nearby and plenty of free parking. The service was great and the breakfast was standard HI fare.

The hotel was great value and when I had to extend for a day, they matched the rate (which ended up being cheaper than it should have been!).

In Santa Clara for an IT conference. I did rent a car because I was at many customer sites too -- But they have a car that can take you within a certain radius for free!! I am a fussy female executive and everything was perfectly acceptable - good bed, free internet, parking and breakfast all in a central location to all of silicon valley. Don't miss this opportunity to save your company a bunch of money by staying here.

We were pleasantly surprised to find a basket of water and snacks when we arrived in the room. The front desk was very helpful when we asked for an extra pillow. The best surprise was the wonderful complimentary breakfast. There were many options for both vegetarians and meat-eaters, with hot entrees, good biscuits, many kinds of breads, yogurt, cereal, etc. I had the best hotel scrambled eggs I've ever had. The room itself is ordinary, but has all the conveniences - easy chair, desk, microwave and fridge. (I do hate when hotels have this ugly brown carpeting- you can never tell if it's clean). The free internet was easy to access. The hotel is on a main street; traffic noises don't bother me, but if they bother you, ask for a room away from the street side. It was an excellent value for the price.
