Reviewed 14 June 2014

If you're looking for excellent value (the price/quality ratio), with price being about $150/night with AAA discount, look no further. The Best Western Inn is a solid performer--clean decently furnished rooms (lamps with built in electrical sockets perfect for chargers; HD LCD TV, comfortable desk chair), solid breakfast (waffles, fruit, hot & cold cereals, hard boiled eggs, coffee, juices, milks, pastries, etc.),available computer/printer in lobby plus competent free wifi in room, fax service at a reasonable cost, friendly staff. We stayed 3 nights and will come again. We did not use fitness center (across the street), nor is there an associated restaurant. Compared with other "downtown" on El Camino motels, you can't beat the Best Western Inn Santa Clara.

Room Tip: Choose rooms away from El Camino The Fitness Center is across the street and is free.

Located within walking distance to a couple of restaurants. The room was very clean, the grounds were very clean, the pool was very clean. Nice offering of fruit, rolls, cereal, etc for breakfast. Near the Convention Center. We thought the room rate was very good for the location, room, etc. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

The room was very comfortable and the lobby and the grounds were extremely clean! Location was excellent and easy to get to. The staff was excellent and very helpful. Wish we had brought our swim suites as the pool just was sparkling clean!

Very good location & price. Very quiet place. Nothing major to complain about maybe except the breakfast but it appears that all Best Western locations have sort of similar limited breakfast that they offer. Breakfast room was not too small like we have seen at other BW.

I stayed at the hotel for two weeks, while my boyfriend stayed for an entire month. The entire stay was excellent, with no major issues throughout the stay. Amenities included the continental breakfast (included a great waffle maker!) which was well stocked and better than breakfasts I have experienced at other hotels. The pool was small but never busy, and cleaned on a daily basis in the morning. The fridge in the room had a freezer element which was very good at keeping water ice-cold, but not powerful enough to keep ice cream frozen (as we sadly learned). There was plenty of storage available, although there were not enough hangers to meet our needs; then again there were two of us staying for with two weeks and a month’s worth of clothing. The bed was large and comfortable, very satisfied on that front. The TV was quite nice, and having several HBO channels meant Game of Thrones on Sundays and plenty of movies throughout the day.

The only issue I had with the room was the carpet. While it looked clean and new, it must have been of an extremely poor quality because the soles of any pair of shoes that walked across the floor became were stained black. Similarly walking barefoot across the floor resulted in very dirty feet which subsequently ruined socks, sheets, and towels if they were stepped on. Take great care with the carpet and avoid leaving articles (especially light ones) on the floor. Wear black socks or a pair of black soled shoes at all times in the room.

Location wise, being right on El Camino Real means easy bus access to major stations and other cities which is a great advantage. The hotel is also located in the middle of Koreatown so there is easy access to a great Korean supermarket across the street. Other shopping included Luckys, Big Lots, Kohls, and a large variety of small ethnic shops within easy walking distance. There was a large variety of restaurants nearby including tons of Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, and Indian restaurants.

Service-wise Nick was fantastic, and eager to help however he could. One of the nicest perks was the cheap California’s Great America amusement park tickets we were able to purchase from him. At $35 a ticket, you could not get them any cheaper even online (outside of big group discounts or big promotions). Housekeeping did a great job and there were never any issues. Extra towels could be requested from the front desk if needed.

Overall a great stay for the amount of time we spent there.

Room Tip: Corner suite on the second floor had a window that looked over a residential area, rather than the p...

My husband and I stayed here in late April. We first booked a regular room with a king bed as we are both large people and it was available at a reasonable rate (for the area) on their website.

When we arrive I asked if perhaps we could change to a handicapped king room not because we are disabled, but because we were on an extended road trip and had a lot of luggage and stuff with us. The clerk was very nice and said we could change at the same price. The room for a handicapped room was smallish but the bathroom was large.

It was late and went straight to bed. That's when we saw that the bed was not a king or even a queen (which is what we have at home) but more of a double sized bed. The next morning I asked the clerk it the room we had was a king or what? He checked and said it was a king. So I asked him if they charged less for a queen or double room handicapped room? He would not give me an answer. So I told him that the bed in our room is definitely not a king sized bed. Not even a queen. He insisted that it was a king sized bed. So if the bed size makes a difference to you, don't stay here.

Otherwise the motel is spotless, very nice breakfast and the location good if you are visiting the Santa Clara, San Jose, etc. area.

Room Tip: All room are downstairs which is great but 'king' beds are not king-sized beds. Period!

Thank You for taking the time to give us your feedback. This tells us where the improvement is needed. I would like to apologize regarding the confusion about the type of bed. Our hotel has king bed or a queen bed only. We do not have a double bed. The room you stayed was a queen bed. I will communicate with front desk staff and make sure they know the type of bed in our ada rooms for future travelers. Our aim is to provide all our guests a wonderful stay and a great customer service. We hope to see you again in the future.

The stay was very good. The hotel management is very polite and helpful.
The staff take care of the room very promptly and make sure they do not disturb the guests
and adjust the room-cleaning timings accordingly.
They have a decent spread in the breakfast but the best thing was for a few days I could get
Indian breakfast (Idli, Upma). And I was able to get espresso coffee in the evenings also and that is not normally available at other hotels in the same category.
I would definitely recommend this location.
I have stayed at a couple of other hotels in the vicinity but I would definitely come back here.

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms on the second floor and somewhere in the middle
