Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Room was very comfortable, lovely updated decor. Pillows were phenomenal! Even the convenience toiletries were high end. The pool area is gorgeous. Breakfasts were high quality and plentiful. Best of all, the staff were super friendly.

This place is simply charming as they gave it a look and feel of some villa on a tropical island. I had meetings in both Sunnyvale and Palo Alto and wanted a convenient place to stay. Plus the rooms were clean and remodeled which was nice. They even offer free breakfast so I was able to grab coffee on the go.

By the way, the hotel seems more targeted to vacation travelers than business travelers. Regardless, it's a convenient place to stay if you have work around here.

I had a hard time finding a room for a last minute business trip, so ended up at Wild Palms. The decor was nice, it was clean, and conveniently located. The breakfast was about what you'd expect, nothing good or bad either way. The only reason I would not stay here again is that the internet was painfully slow. They tell you you can get faster speeds by paying for it, but I did not find the paid service any faster. As this was a business trip, this was killer. When I checked out, they refunded what I paid for internet, but I couldn't risk another business trip there. Maybe a personal trip would be fine.

While this hotel may not look like much from the street, it is fabulous! Our room was extra clean with great decor. One of the beds was right next to the AC, but didn't bother us. The breakfast buffet had fresh melon, eggs, sausage and pancakes and was perfect. All the staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful. Fantastic place at a great price!

Wild Palms has that certain je ne sais quoi. We have stayed here many times while visiting grandchildren in Sunnyvale and going to the ballet in San Jose. Truly always a fun experience and the ambiance more European with the conveniences of the good ol' USA. Know it's a favorite of many foreign tourists as well as the Silicon Valley crowd. Good restaurants nearby. Great staff to make you feel at home.

Room Tip: Inside rooms around the courtyard are quieter.

I just returned from a business trip to Silicon Valley and stayed here for 2 nights. Believe the pictures - this hotel is utterly charming and full of character. Yes, the exterior and the neighborhood may turn you off. But face it folks, you're in Sunnyvale and the whole city is bland and filled with strip plazas. When I checked in I was told I had been upgraded to their largest suite, which was right off the pool area. The room was huge, with a living room, kitchen, comfy king canopy bed and a spacious bathroom. Ceiling fans were a nice touch! The spotlessly clean pool was such a welcome respite after a day full of meetings - it's just the right size, and there's a nice selection of cabanas, lounge chairs and tables scattered around. The only thing I didn't love about the hotel was the breakfast, but that's easily fixed by a quick trip to Starbucks. I'm looking forward to my next stay!

Room Tip: I loved my suite on the ground floor right off the pool, but if you need more privacy you might want...

I think that is a very appropriate title....Charming place in a bland neighborhood! It is so true, we can't change what is around us, but we can control what we provide. Thank you for the great comments and we too look forward to your return. Sorry the breakfast wasn't to your liking, but great fix going to Starbucks!

Have a wonderful day.
