We were looking for an affordable place to stay while visiting relatives in Sunnyvale, and were pleasantly surprised by the experience at the BW University Inn, Santa Clara. While the amenities are not spectacular, the rooms were neat and clean, the beds comfortable, the hotel quiet, and the staff friendly. My family particularly enjoyed the complimentary lobby breakfast which had... More

Best service I've seen anywhere in a long time. Cannot say enough about the friendly and helpful employees. The room was recently very nicely renovated, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was so convenient with a nice variety.

Apparently this hotel was recently added to the Best Western chain. We arrived earlier than expected and staff went the extra step to find a room that was done so we could check in and rest before our family gathering. The renovations that were done were done in a superb manner. Modern decor, quality grade tile, shower surround, wall treatment,... More

I stayed here on a business trip and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and cleanliness of the room. It really did feel like you were staying in a hotel until you stepped out the front door and found yourself in the parking lot. The bed was very comfortable and provided an adequate night's sleep. The room was appointed with... More

A super large room made it easy for 4 of us to move around. The bricked parking lot and other tile work gives a classy feel to the hotel. Everything seemed new and clean, and the staff were very accommodating. They responded quickly when we found our room not made up upon arrival. The beds and pillows were quite comfortable... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Best Western, the feel of a 1950's motor lodge with all brand new updated amenities. My room was quiet and comfortable, the service was great. Definitely check this hotel out when you're in the Santa Clara area.

I stayed here for a 3 night visit. The quality of service at this location was excellent. Really, not much to complain about. The only thing I would want to improve is the breakfast: it's really just a continental breakfast + a waffle maker, and there aren't any healthy options. It also would be nice to have real cups, etc... More

Hello Jonathan E, Thank you for the feedback and the opportunity to improve the experience for all of our future guests. Breakfast is a challenge in most hotels.

The hotel was terrific. Refurbished but like new. Great furnishings. Great breakfast. Egg sandwich with ham, bagels, rolls, oatmeal, orange juice, all great! Separate toilet/shower from sink area. If we are in the area we will stay here any time!
