This property is fine as long as you request the rooms in the very back away from the pool. (rooms whose back portion face a residential street) These rooms have nice southern exposure, are clean and well -maintained. On our stay there in April, we were put in a different area, the "overflow" section and we found the room to... More

Took a recent trip to Santa Clara for my daughters tumbling meet. We made the mistake of not booking a hotel before we got there and somehow came up with this gem on Expedia. The pictures LIE!!! This hotel is a complete tear down. The beds are horrible, the decor is from the 1980's, it was dirty, it was stinky,... More

Of course Mariani’s is old – it is a historic hotel. That’s its appeal. Mariani’s is like a time capsule that transports its guests back into the past, to the birth of the Silicon Valley in the early 1960s. The facility is well maintained and clean. A good value for guests who stay there.

Close to the intersection of El Camino and San Tomas, the location is great, you can walk to many restaurants, starbucks, and bank. What this hotel needs is remodeling, and it needs it NOW! I am sure residents of the area have good memories of this hotel, but everything is sooo old. Rooms are spacious, especially the "suites". The suites... More

The good: breakfast buffet, extra towels/pillows promptly delivered, overall friendly front desk people. The ok: rooms were decent though the walls are a bit thin. The BIZARRE: after finding out that this hotel has a very reasonable monthly rate, i inquired with the manager who asked me (with some attitude, in front of FOUR other employees) "so what's going on...

There were no hotels available at all and my friend found this place. I was greeted by some very nice reservation desk people who made me feel welcome. Virginia is so nice (and very attractive!) Would stay here again if my regular hotel wasn't available.

Nice location and good buffet. Coffee in room is great. Wi-fi was reliable. Probably needs some maintenance as rooms are not sound proof ( hard wood floors of first floor rooms ) and nullifies the advantage of less sound from vehicles plying on the road outside.

I never write reviews and was looking for a budget place to stay - so it's not like I was expecting much here. But this has to be one of the worst places I have ever stayed. For a cheap hotel it is still very run down, parking is difficult (you should see the spaces near the pool - good... More
