Location is excellent for using Caltrain. Internet is fast, AC works, fairly quiet considering closeness to railroad tracks. Keureg machine in the room. The interiors are as nice as the expensive hotels along 101.

Thank you for sharing your comments. We have recently upgraded our internet service to make it fast and problem free and the Keurig machines are a new addition as well. We will continue to make improvements and appreciate your feedback!

I travel through the bay area weekly and have been looking for a nice, comfortable place to stay regularly. I thought to try this hotel based on price and reviews. BIG mistake. Read the fine print. Most hotels have a 24 hour cancellation policy. This place has a 48 hour cancellation policy which is ridiculous considering that it is the...

We stayed here for 1 night and we got a good-size room, I would even say it is bigger than average. The room seems to be newly renovated with a minimalist style. The bed is quite big and comfortable, with fresh clean beddings. I like that they have a clothes iron and ironing board in the room, as well. Location...

We stayed at Silicon Valley inn for one night in the end of august. We were very happy with our stay. The room was modern and well-equipped with refrigerator and microwave in the room. Bathroom was large and clean, the bed was very comfortable. Nearby there are several shops and restaurants. We would defintely recommend this place.

A relatively small hotel located right on El Camino Real in the heart of Belmont. The room we had was small (to say the least) but perfect for our needs. The property is recently renovated and the rooms (at least the one we had) was very clean and up to date. Nothing fancy but an excellent value. We would definitely...

This is an older motel that was recently renovated with a nice modern/beach feel to it. The room I had was great for one as the rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. 4 pillows on the bed, refrigerator, microwave and writing desk. The bathroom had been remodeled with a modern sink and barn door type door. Nothing fancy, but...

The room was clean and modern, bed was fairly comfortable, but the wifi was unusable. There seemed to be only a couple other rooms occupied while I was there so oversaturation was not the issue. It was just really really slow to the point of being unusable. Which is kind of hilarious considering that the hotel just changed its name...

I recently stayed here for almost two weeks on business. I am in the area once a year, and the hotel is not selected by me. First, I agree with the reviews that the remodeled rooms are very nice. While I was there, the exterior was repainted. If you are staying more than a few nights, opt for the larger...

Dear guest- Thank you for your insightful comments. We are pleased you enjoyed our recently renovated rooms and hope you enjoy our exterior enhancements in the future. It is true that the train station across the street offers direct access to San Francisco and San Jose just steps away. We will work on your suggestions to improve family friendly amenities...
