“Get away from Silicon Valley.. while in Silicon Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2011

When you stay at La Hacienda, you get a feeling of what lured all those aerospace engineers, venture capitalists, artists, and Stanford/Cal alumni to colonize this area in the 1950s for their Utopic bedroom communities... before the blight of peach McMansions and conspicuous consumption hit the valley.

The grounds remind me of a photo shoot from a 1960's Sunset Magazine- set in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains where the redwoods begin- quiet, serene and balanced. Mature trees and a peaceful grounds add to the mellow ambience.
We love the staff here- so helpful and as good as any concierge anywhere. They had great tips for us (Montalvo, Hakone Gardens) to take our children. The pool was nice for an afternoon swim. And they offer wifi so my husband could work. The hotel is equidistance from both Saratoga and Los Gatos, so there is no shortage of dining options, though there is the original restaurant and bar on the grounds. It is about a 15 minute drive from downtown San Jose- which isn't the most welcoming of families with young children.

My husband and I, along with our daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandsons, were to Los Gatos for our son and his fiancee's engagement party. We opted to stay at a hotel close to our son's home, and chose La Haciena Inn. Clean, comfortable rooms with a nice, free continental breakfast. Excellent coffee! Jeremy, at the desk, was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

This Inn is comfortable,pleasantly situated and superbly managed. We have stayed here for the past three years and we have always been received with every consideration by Lorraine and all the staff. They have made a number of improvements in the last year and the new beds are amongst the most comfortable we have ever slept in. Located just a mile or two outside the town of Los Gatos it is more than worth the short drive.There was a restaurant next to the Inn but it was closed for renovations a couple of years ago and it never reopened, which is a pity.The ability to eat next door was an added attraction.

We recommend La Hacienda without any reservation.We'll be back next year.

I love my stays at La Hacienda...beautiful rooms with individual character...and always clean...great folks who work there. You feel like you are surrounded by nature yet so comfortable. I marvel at how there is always everything I want available to me.

We stayed here on our wedding night. The management and staff were so accommodating and friendly, and the room was clean and quiet. We had recommended the hotel, sight unseen, to our friends and other wedding guests and we were rewarded for our gamble by everyone really enjoying themselves, poolside or otherwise. Very cool grounds that used to be a Japanese garden (I'd be hard-pressed to find much evidence, though). The restaurant was no longer operating, but the breakfast was more than adequate. They are pet-friendly, kid-friendly, honeymooner-friendly, and in case of romantic emergency there is often a nice gentleman selling flowers roadside just by the entrance. I highly recommend this hotel and the next time we're in town we will be staying at this charming, convenient and friendly place.

My wife and I came to this location to have our wedding and reception. What a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly, courtious and very professional. Lorraine, the Inn manager was great to work with. I recommend La Hacienda for a quiet stay or a catered function.

We've stayed here multiple times for concerts at the nearby Mountain Winery. The rooms have recently been updated, with some luxury touches including flat-screen TVs, up-scale bedding and other amenities. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, quiet and remarkably inexpensive for the quality. Nice staff too. It's pleasant to sit around the pool; in the evening sipping wine and eating cheese, or having a pleasant breakfast (they offer fresh waffles). Surrounding trees range from palms to conifers to deciduous. The restaurant and bar on-site are currently closed but other options are plentiful within a few miles. If you are in the Los Gatos/Saratoga area, this is a find.
