Great location. newly refurbished.

Really helpful that staff always willing to help. A very pleasant guy on reception when checking in his name is David P really very helpful.

A good selection for breakfast each day and always nice and fresh.

I would recommend and I would stay there again.

We have a daughter attending Santa Clara University, and we visit her from time to time. We have tried several inns in the area: Candlewood Suites, Holiday Inn Express, TownPlace Suites San Jose, Madison Street Inn, Mission Inn Santa Clara, Quality Inn & Suites, etc. None seemed to suit. Finally our daughter told us that other parents liked the Best Western University Inn Santa Clara, and so we tried it. We love it.

The physical plant is up-to-date. The lobby is pleasant, and includes the breakfast room. The parking lot is paved with light colored brick instead of asphalt. The pool is nice and surrounded with chairs and tables and loungers. The rooms are clean and comfortable, equipped with lots of electrical plugs, an easy chair, a desk, and office chair.

The help is very nice. Dave is the guy who checked us in, and he is jovial, efficient, and helpful. The folks who work the breakfast and the maids are also very nice.

The hotel has free WiFi -- just watch out for the rooms on the north side, as the WiFi signal there is marginal to non-existent. I would give it 5 stars but for the WiFi issue.

The included breakfast is very good with a wide selection of foods: waffles, pastries, toast, yogurt, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausage links, potatoes. There is coffee and a couple of kinds of juices, as well as bottled water.

So, this is now our home-away-from-home when we are visiting Santa Clara.

This is a very clean, eye appealing motel. Very quiet rooms. Very nicely decorated. Bed was comfy. Shower and toilet area a little small, but okay. Breakfast was nice and staff was very nice and friendly.

Perfect hotel in the middle on Santa Clara. Close to everything, and a very comfortable location. Once inside the property you feel like you are in a mini resort! Rooms are clean, quiet and the breakfast served prepares anyone for a great day!!

Excellent all the way around. If we go back up to Northern California, this is the Hotel we will stay in. It was just a nice place. Staff was very helpful. Not much else to say about this Best Western. How come I have to have 200 words?

This was a great find for a Best Western. The room and grounds appeared to be newly remodeled, and the beds were soft and cozy. The rooms smelled fresh and were inviting and when we return, we'll stay here again.

Very clean rooms! Very nice rooms especially for the price that i paid very reasonable. Free breakfast. Nice people very informative. Your around everything one hour to go to santa cruz. Hotel rooms are cleaned daily. They can wash your clothes if needed. Your 10 minutes away from levi stadium. Definitely will recommend this hotel.
