I LOVE HIE. We requested an early check in before heading to the Winchester Mystery House. The room was clean. We had 5 so the 4 adults slept in the 2 beds and the child slept in the pull out sofa. There was a frig and microwave. Down the street (a little drive) was a Subway, In-n-Out, and many other... More

I spent a couple of nights here, last week, on business and found the hotel to be very nice, clean and updated. The equipment in the gym was very good and well kept. My meetings were in Mountain View near the Google campus, so traffic was a bit of a nightmare--45-60 mins. to travel 15 miles--and pretty much expected for... More

We stay here 3-4 times a year as we have family in the area. Most recent stay was a week ago. Great location for easy access to everything! Friendly staff. Very comfortable rooms. Nice to have a quality breakfast to start our day.

I made my reservation late Sunday night, the 27th of July, around 9 PM. When I made this reservation, the only option the website would let me select was a "Standard Room" though it said it still had a room with two queen sized beds available. I made the reservation, called the hotel immediately, and explained what was happening and... More

Stayed 2 nights on a recent visit to family and chose this property due to its proximity to local family. The room has everything you need - a multitude of electrical outlets, phone/ipod jacks, couch & chair, plus a rolling table/desk with desk chair -- nice to use for work or to roll over to the seating area.

This is a budget hotel at $200+/night.

The staff were helpful and attentive. What led me to rate... More

Stayed here for a month when on business visit. Service, cleanliness, staff are all good. But it falls short of greatness and wowness. Rooms are neat and clean but a little more attention to detail would have helped. On the study table there were no other stationary except pen and a small pad! Something I haven't experienced anywhere else before.... More
