This hotel was clean, safe and the staff was friendly. There were no bells and whistles and no free wifi, but it was good place for travelling through Santa Clara. The floors were clean, the bed was made, and the door locked.

I am looking for a clean place to shower and sleep. I found it. One thing that struck me odd with the motel room was the 6"x4' near-wood flooring. The IKEA decor was odd as well. I remodeled my home office like this... I feel at home in this motel room. ;-) Seriously, the room and bathroom is clean. The... More

This a Motel6, what more to say? Slightly strange smell, the second morning only cold water from the shower... Enough space in the room, the beds were OK, the rooms were remodeled since my last visit some 10 years ago.

Motel 6 Santa Clara was the only available lodging at the time of my booking. Recently renovated. Rooms nice but you get a lot of workers, sharing room and it can be very loud. Rooms definitely need better sound proofing. Also paid extra for very bad wi fi service. Front office folks nice. At 80/night, your best deal in the... More

Heat wave in the SF bay area. My apt has no a/c and no insulation so it makes for a very hot place. Booked 2 nights here not expecting too much (except a/c). I was greeted to ants on the bed (in the sheets), ants on the floor, and 2 roaches by the garbage can. Stains on the bed sheets... More

We stayed here overnight at the half way point on a long drive. Check in was very easy, and prices are posted on the wall, so there's no overcharging, which I always feel hotels do. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the room. It was completely remodeled art deco style. Very clean, all new, and no more carpet.... More

this place had chicken wire for an air conditioner vent! the tub enclosure was peeling. a real section 8 housing kind of place. Not for vacationers. I called the main office for motel 6, and offered pictures I had taken. They were not interested in the least. I was sent a certificate for another stay. I

Compared to our last stay in Super 8 at Berkeley the rooms here are not that good. But since we did only sleep here it was okay.

Simple no-frill stay. Nothing special but at US$55 the acco was a good one. However if you need wi-fi, be prepared to pay extra. No gadgets like microwave or refrigerator. I would rate it as a very average accommodation. Rooms were clean and daily cleaning was good.

This was the cheapest rate I could find on the internet, and I was prepared for an adventure. The hotel was in a busy area of Santa Clara with lots of strip malls and fast food joints around. The hotel staff was courteous and I did not have any problems with check in/out or daily room cleaning, except they do... More
