Yes - it has the layout of a motel. But my experience at the Hotel Strata was absolutely awesome -- the best hotel experience I've ever had in Mountain View. Staff was delightful, providing a lovely welcome bag upon my arrival with a bunch of amenities. Room (a mini-suite, located in the annex) was extremely comfortable, clean, and well-appointed -- the giant LCD TVs are a fun touch. The bed was absolutely perfect, with super soft linens. I very much enjoyed the (surprisingly expansive) included breakfast, which I was able to bring back & enjoy in my room. Bravo Hotel Strata! I'll be back!
