Room was clean, staff (especially cleaning staff) very friendly and helpful, but it's kind of noisy (not their fault- it's just on a busy street). The price is right. Close to Santa Clara University- within walking distance. Happy for the free parking!

Nice hotel with plenty of free parking. Room was really clean and neat. Breakfast was just enough to start the day. Juices, hot beverages, fruit, cereal, danish. Staff was nice and helpful. Good value for the money. Would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at this motel for two nights to handle family matters in Santa Clara. The motel offered us a great location near Santa Clara University, along with a very comfortable, quiet room, and free parking. The in-room heating and cooling unit worked efficiently and was easy to operate. The bathroom sink lighting in our room was...

The metro San Jose area is pricey. We found this property to be a bargain. The facility is not new, but the carpet has been recently replaced, beds are decent and everything is in good working order. Location is close to SJC airport is convenient for air travelers. It's very close to the 101 as well. Rooms are spacious. The...

It looked very nice online. It wasn't terrible but not what I expected. The rooms looked to be half way renovated with cheap almost nice things. My room was right next to the housekeeping laundry room. The noise from the machines did not bother me. It was like congregation of employees outside my room late at night talking and smoking...

The room was clean and the property was quiet. Very centrally located in Santa Clara. Close to the freeway and easy to find. The breakfast opens at 6 am. Parking was tight but we found a space every night.

My first impression was of a motor lodge but when I opened up my room, I was pleasantly surprised. The king-size bed was equipped with 6 standard pillows and a towel swan (nice touch)! It was very comfortable. They also left a bottle of water in the fridge for me and different coffees and teas for the Keurig. The furniture...

Wife and stayed here about 18 months ago, and decided to give it a try on our next trip. The rooms have been given a facelift And are much nicer. This property used to be a Days Inn, and was pretty shabby. Two points - access is a challenge when driving south on El Camino Real - it is necessary...

This place is actually an old motel. The check in was fast and the staff was friendly. The room was clean and the decor was decent. There were stains on the bathroom ceiling and the security latch on the front door was falling off. Overpriced for what you get, but that is generally the case in San Jose. This motel...
