My fiance and I recently took a roadtrip up the California coast. Of the three hotels/motels that we stayed in, the Clarion Inn Silicon Valley was probably the nicest. We got a room by the road that featured a microwave/fridge combo, a large sink vanity, a flat-screen TV, and decent furnishings. My fiance particularly appreciated the five pillows on the bed (two different types for whatever your preference). I appreciated the shampoo, conditioner, and lotion set. The other motels only gave us one bottle of a shampoo/conditioner combo. In the morning, they had a continental breakfast featuring varying pastries, juices, yogurt, and a waffle-maker (among other things) that was quite nice. All in all, the accomodations were above expectations.
Unfortunately, however, our stay was interrupted by a break-in in the room next door. While I can't really blame the management for that, I will say that they handled the issue to the best of their capabilities. Luckily, no-one was harmed as the grid structure in the window prevented anyone from coming in the room. The couple next door got an immediate room upgrade, and a glass-repair truck was outside by breakfast time. It was an unfortunate incident, but was handled properly.
