Average room with desk, chair with lamp, double pane windows that open, free wireless,free hot breakfast and free parking. Large spa heated to 100 degrees and larger pool heated to 80 degrees. Near a 7-eleven in south Sunnyvale. Although local bus is within a block or two, a car makes it easier to get around the San Jose/ Sunnyvale/ Mountain... More

I recently visited the Wild Palms hotel as I was attending a conference nearby. Staff was very friendly and I particularly liked the uncomplicated and easy-going attitude: no ticking off room numbers when you entered the breakfast room (really good breakfast, by the way - incredibly tasty fresh pineapple every morning), coffee maker in the room and complimentary tea or...

Fantastic! Thank you so much for the positive comments and the feedback. We are so pleased you had such a pleasurable stay with us. I will make sure the team is recognized for taking such good care of you during your visit. Breakfast should be hearty, healthy and happy, no muss no fuss! Sorry about the rain, must admit we...

I was there for work early April, for three nights, and it was a most positive experience, even though pouring rain for two of the days prevented my husband and me from enjoying the pool, hot tub, or outdoors patios. I had asked for a quiet room, and upper floor (because of reviews that talked about "ceiling noise" if you... More

Thank you so much for your fantastic review and the 5 stars. Great tip about the second floor and yes, we are very happy to have all the family stay, even those with four legs. You are correct, the rooms do not have a microwave. We have one at the front desk for guest use or for a small fee... More

Checked into this hotel for just one night and certainly looked for another one almost as soon as we checked in. The card key they issued us kept getting deactivated. The first time it happened, I was carrying a load of shopping bags and sweltering under the California heat, so I was royally pissed at not being able to enter... More

I feel really bad for your experience, especially after reading your other posts of your other travels at other hotels. It seems like you can't catch a break during any of your visits, they... More

Our room was decorated nicely enough, and had a very cool vessel sink and faucet in bath, but two double beds vs two queens made for a very uncomfortable night's sleep. The room was big enough for two queens. The room above us "walked on our heads" til late at night - every footstep very loud. Breakfast was horribly disorganized... More

I'm glad you enjoyed the decor and am sorry about the noise and breakfast room issue. We thought by putting the beverage station close to the door, guest who only wanted a beverage didn't have to go all the way into the room. You might be right that this doesn't work. We will look into it. Thank you for bringing... More

I visit Silicon Valley at least once a month and stayed here recently. The hotel is owned by a company that has several hotels in the area and I have stayed at three of them including this one.

Thank you for so many good points. I also agree that the round shower bar is a great idea. Sorry about the fitness center. I wish it was larger too, but that would involve taking out a guestroom and knocking down walls. We are looking into it, but probably not until next year. We thank you for selecting the Wild... More

We have stayed at the Wild Palms in Sunnyvale 8 times now, and have always been extremely pleased with the service, rooms, pool/hot tub, breakfast, and atmosphere provided. My wife really loves the toiletries. After having discovered that we could bring our dog (at no extra charge), we brought him this time and the staff welcomed him and us with... More

small hotel in general: small breakfast area, small workout area (3 machines), but quaint. Go when it's not full; otherwise it'll be hard to park, to find a place to sit at the cafe. The front desk is very friendly and comfortable.

We had stayed at the Wild Palms in the past but I had forgotten and on our recent trip to visit our daughter at Santa Clara University we booked ourselves at another location.
