Comfortable room, good internet speed. Location is very convenient. Good choice for breakfast. Air condition does not make much noise. I did not want to leave the hotel at the end of my stay. It rarely happens, when I travel on business! I'd like to come here again!

Great value, great breakfast. The place was very clean. The only minor issue was the noise from other guests using the ice machine late at night. Our room was just below the exterior ice machine. I would stay here again.

Given the price and since its just an overnight stay, we weren't expecting much. Too our surprise, it was a great hotel experience! The room was clean and didn't feel stuffy as most cheap hotel rooms are. The amenities were great; they had a pool, microwave inside the room, and most useful of all for our stay - an ironing...

The location was convenient, but I was too tired for the check-in process to be the less than stellar experience it was. The rest of the stay was better and breakfast is much improved from a previous stay there.

Great hotel for the area. Newly renovated so everything smelled new. I suggested asking for a second floor room as we did hear footsteps in the morning. If you are not a morning person be prepared to be woken up by the noise of the housekeeping cart in the early morning. We wish the pool stayed open longer and that... More

Hello Autumn K, Thank you for the 4 star review. I appreciate the feedback regarding the housekeeping carts. Our housekeepers normally start at 9am and try to be as quite as possible. Even though we have brand new housekeeping carts, the wheels rolling on our beautiful pavers in the parking lot and tiled corridors does make a bit of noise.... More

I really could not tell if this was new construction or renovated, it was that nice! Everything done to my exacting standards. Super clean. Microwave & refrigerator a plus. Very comfortable. Professional staff.

Stayed here on a visit to Santa Clara University with my daughter and her two friends. The motel is recently very nicely updated. Staff was very friendly, especially Edith. Room was clean and comfortable, but somewhat small. The bathroom was very small for the four of us. The sink area really only accomodates one person and the mirror is not... More
