Traveled here on military business; the rates for area hotels of national chains were of the typical California rate and far outside of our per diem allowance; the Wild Palms offered us the military per diem rate for our 4 night stay. This is a boutique hotel; while the outside may appear dated to some, just inside the securely gated... More

Room was clean, pool was refreshing and not overly crowded, complimentary breakfast was wonderful - lots to choose from! Staff was spectacular. So friendly and helpful. A wonderful oasis after long work days. Wish I could have stayed longer. Will definitely stay when I return to the area.

I had a nice time at the Wild Palms. They are remodeling right now so I'll cut them some slack for the dust and the drab exterior appearance. My room was clean, the bathroom was spotless, and there were no strange smells. I even tore the bed apart looking for stains and bedbugs but there were none. I was pleased... More

I was in town for work and I stayed at the Wild Palms for one night. The service, was excellent, the atmosphere is very friendly and less businessy than most hostels I stay at, which was a nice switch for me. The area by the pool is great to relax. During my stay they were renovating the gym area so... More

The Wild Palms is remodeling. Even so, the Northern California ambiance and hospitality is very accommodating. The fitness center has new Precor equipment and the interior decorating is looking good. Really, it's all about hospitality and I'd like to mention three front desk personalities who always take good care of me. Cassidy, Garret and Yesi. Thank you and keep up... More

The Wild Palms is an attractive property, and one that's a little quirky and quite a lot of fun. We really enjoyed it and will be back again. This place seems like it probably started out life sometime back many years ago as a more basic motel or motor lodge, but was subsequently acquired by the Joie de Vivre chain... More

Thank you for your positive feedback! We are indeed almost done with our renovation (all noisy items have been completed) and we hope that you can make it back for our final product unveiling as we enter the fall. Don't be strangers, and we hope you come back for another quirky (but excellent) stay! Cheers! More

The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. The stay was nice and this hotel would be my first choice if staying in the Sunnyvale area again. The food was good, and relaxing in the hot tub at night was amazing.

Stayed here for one night with a friend and two 12 year olds for a soccer tournament. What a fabulous find! Hotel is just putting the finishing touches on a renovation done with a lot of love and attention to detail. The vibe is tropical paradise, but still cool and edgy. The heart of the hotel is the beautiful pool... More
