There are lots of hotel/motel options in Silicon Valley and they range from pretty basic to fancy. The Aloft Cupertino is probably on the higher end of the spectrum whilst continuing to offer fairly competitive rates. There were no surprises with my stay - neither positive nor negative, other than parking was quite tight when I arrived at around 8pm and I had to wait for a lot to open up.
The room was large and the bed was comfortable, and everything was clean. Check in and check out was quick and painless though the hotel appeared to be fairly busy. Didn't have the chance to try the pool or the reasonably well appointed gym, but would have if there was more time.
All in all a decent option in Silicon Valley, which I would be happy to return to on my next trip.
