“Not very clean...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Where do I start...I'm not sure if it was wallpaper adhesive or what but most of wallpaper joints were pealing and had red stuff all over them. The night stand had white stuff on it, the walls in the bathroom were dirty, right outside the window there was bird poop all over the ledges. Most of these things could of be easily fixed in my opinion...just by the cleaners doing a better job.

The highlight about the place was the nice lady that let us check in early, she was very nice and professional!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

The room was clean and comfortable, much better than I had been expecting. It seems that it had been redecorated recently. There was a coffee maker and a small microwave oven in the room, although I didn't try the latter.

The receptionists were both extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also a pleasant surprise, with cornflakes, croissants, bagels, coffee and orange juice.

There is a reasonable Thai restaurant and a small convenience/liquor store just a couple of minutes from the motel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Pro: Room was much bigger (including a full-size couch and coffee table) and better appointed than I expected for the price. (I got a deal for $90/night.) Room and bathroom were clean, with a good shower. Free wireless Internet was extremely reliable. Free breakfast was about what you'd expect for a lobby cold-breakfast spread, and I was pleasantly surprised to find both a small microwave and a small fridge in the room.

Con: Pillows a bit lumpy and towels a bit skimpy. Biggest problem, though, is the noise: this motel is located near two major roads. Other reviewers who said this place is quiet need to get their hearing checked - traffic was constant nearly all night, including trucks.

If noise doesn't both you, this is a good choice for the location and price.

When travelling to Santa Clara for business I normally stay at the Mission Inn.

The motel has quiet, spacious, and clean rooms with kitchenette areas. It's close to the freeways so there's easy access to all major offices, El Camino Real, San Jose, and Santa Clara airport.

The room rates are wallet friendly and there's a free morning breakfast spread.

Recommended for budget business travel to Santa Clara.

Stayed here recently for a couple of nights with a large family group. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beds were very comfortable and rooms were clean. Continental breakfast is great! Rooms somewhat recently updated. Used to be a Days Inn. Extremely convenient to University of Santa Clara. Would stay again.

Room Tip: This building is two story, but there is no elevator.

This is a surprisingly good motel: it has been recently renovated and the rooms are quite spacious, clean and quiet. The location is great: right in the heart of Santa Clara. The free breakfast is convenient and has some decent choices as far as continental fate is concerned.

We returned to the Mission Inn, and found it even nicer than it was last year. The staff - especially Anna - were very helpful and friendly. The motel room was very clean and comfortable. Best of all is the location - very close to San Jose airport, and across the street from the Santa Clara campus, and near to nice restaurants and public transportation. We really enjoyed our stay there.
