The Lamborghini dealership is across the street and Bentley is next door. But it's just a basic old-school American motel. Rooms are comfy, Internet just fine. No breakfast, but “Southern Kitchen” is just across the street, and is just fine for that.

Nice hotel, great rates considering we are right downtown. We are in town for the weekend to see some wineries. Nice grounds, nice staff free parking and close to walking paths. Rooms are average - but what more do you need to do other then sleep when so much is so close at hand?

I almost hate to share this one! But I'm being selfish -- Obviously it has been discovered, because the hotel was fully booked every night, if parking is any indication! I stumbled onto this retro, old-California style hotel while searching for a place to stay for about a week in order to visit and help some dear friends who were... More

Spent a week. Nice, clean, very reasonable rates. Fridge needed service, compressor clicked all night. Staff felt if we changed room the problem would likely reoccur. (????) Staff recommended we unplug fridge at night. Parking is an issue if you return later evening. Take your mini wireless router to plug into their wired service. Hotel has wireless but it is... More

Ask for re-modeled rooms in the back w/fridge and microwave. Clean and quiet with own parking lot. Friendly staff. Located heart of downtown Los Gatos and next to park. Easy walk to shops and restaurants.

Our two weeks stay at the Garden Inn Hotel has been excellent ! We have a room on the end, closest to the carpark, and have found it to be very quiet, in spite of being near cars coming and going, and have heard very little noise from the next room, other than the shower occasionally. We sleep late, so... More

Visiting family in town, this was the perfect choice. A downtown location within walking distance of restaurants and coffee shops. We had a kitchenette unit which was great for a quick breakfast before heading out for the day. Everything was clean and comfortable. Could have used a "road map" to find all the light and ceiling fan switches. Extensive instructions... More

Very good value for the money. We had a cozy room, very clean, very quiet and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The room has everything you need, including a small cupboard with dishes, glasses and cutlery - all set for an in-room picnic. We had been saving up our calories for breakfast at the Los Gatos Cafe, so... More

This is a very retro hotel. Some upgrades in bedding, pillows and furnishings would make this place a great place to stay. That said...it was still comfortable and convenient. The only room left was a room with a kitchen. The dishes were clean, there was a new set of salt/pepper, sponge, dish rack and the area was quite clean. The... More

Clean, nice kitchen in it, heat broke and had to use a space heater but it is a charming older place in a wonderful location. Plan on having breakfast elsewhere, what they put out for "breakfast" is pretty weak. Very nice staff. Laundry on site that is free, how nice when you have been traveling! Internet connection was fine for... More
