In general the hotel is comfortable and cheaper than many in this area. The room and common areas were spotlessly clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. On the down-side the fridge and AC unit in the room were noisy and I had to unplug the fridge and turn off the AC at night. Also, the lack of a... More

I have stayed here before over the years, being a season ticket holder from out of town, this place is an excellent location for games at Santa Clara University. Checking in was a dream, very friendly, quick and easy. It was very nice to see the upgrades with the rooms, beds and bathrooms. The hotel shop is always great for... More

We stay here when we visit our daughter who is a student at Santa Clara University. The property is clean, and the rooms are very functional for working on business: Wifi, large desk area, lots of electrical plug-ins. The exercise room is clean and well-equipped (2 treadmills, an elliptical, a stationary bike, some rack weights, a TV, and towels). The... More

Location:- In front of Santa Clara CalTrain Station, very conveniently located Room:- Corner rooms are specially very spacious, better to choose rooms facing El Camino, to avoid the noise of the train, but the rail track facing rooms offer a much better view of the Mountains.

Our room was very nice and clean. The bed was comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the room for the price. The hotel clearly caters to a business trade, more independent travelers. The train noise was an issue, so request a room on the front of the hotel. Great location to visit Santa Clara University. Added plus... More

I stayed here because it was on my approved corporate hotel list and although I was a little worried about the train noise, my request for a quiet room was honored and I got a room near the front of the hotel. I'm a very light sleeper but using the A/C system on fan all night generated enough white noise... More

I've stayed here several times now and find the staff to be rather unprofessional. Sometimes rude when there is an issue, sometimes I've reserved a room and called ahead to make sure it was available only to arrive and be told they are on a first come first serve basis. The accommodations are basic and one shouldn't expect anymore.

I was locked out of my room three times. Then they refused to let me back in my room unless I let them charge my credit card - even though I paid (in full) in advance through Orbitz. The first time they locked me out seemed an accident. The second time was quite annoying. The third time they refused to... More

The kitchen facilities are a major plus for this, and so is the laundry and honesty store. The room has utensils for cooking and in-room, a full-size refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher (no oven). The laundry is complimentary, with small detergent packs available for sale. The honesty store stocks breakfast basics, even eggs to cook, and dispenses complimentary coffee all day.... More

Stayed here for four nights and found this to be a very nice hotel. Great location. This hotel offers free washer and dryer which I like, but does not offer breakfast. If you like to prepare your own breakfast and any other meal, this is a great place. The bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were great. The exercise... More
