“Surprisingly nice place to stay in Silicon Valley but bad WiFi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Stayed here recently on a short business trip and was pleasantly surprised - being right on El Camino and having the look of a motel, I expected shabby furnishings and noise and found neither. My room was very large, about the size of a studio apartment, complete with kitchenette. And despite being right on El Camino it was quite quiet.

It has the standard amenities of a chain hotel - small fitness center, average breakfast, small pool & spa.

My only issue, as reported before, is that the WiFi is very spotty. It's fine when it works but when everyone gets back at 6 PM and gets on the network, it grinds to a halt. This is a no-no in any modern hotel, but in Silicon Valley it's especially bad.

But with this exception I highly recommend it.

We appreciate your time in reviewing our hotel and happy to hear that it was more than you expected. Yes, we agree that in Silicon Valley the internet is a major componet of the stay. We are in progress of changing out the last of our older antennas, that can't handle the high demand at peak times. Unfortunately, you must have been on the older antenna and we apologize for not letting you know that portable antennas are available, as well.

Stayed there for three nights. Spacious room, quiet and convenient locations. Closed to Starbucks, groceries and restaurants. Disables friendly rooms. Breakfast is included and it is ok. Staffs are friendly.
Sound proof between rooms is not good.

WIFI sucks. I had very tough time VPNing into my office network and calling using IP phone.
I don't have any other problem. I gave this feedback to the front desk and the fro desk staff was diligent to note down the complaint

I stay at this hotel twice a year for business. In the past, I didn't see any problem and I was satisfied with the spacious room. But this time, a chair at a working desk has been changed and they use the same chair for the dining table. I am an Asian and I am 5 feet 9. It was too high fore me, and it was so tiring. I usually work for hours at my hotel room. I do hope the desk chair should have height-adjustment mechanism.

We are very pleased that you are a returning guest to our hotel and that you provide a reviews for other travelers. We apologize for the desk chair, we are in the process of replacing the older chairs with new task chairs. In the interim, the dining chairs have been at a few desks. We have no problem making sure that you have a proper desk chair. Always feel free to contact the front desk with any room requests. Again, thank you for your time and patronage.

Thoughtful hotel -- The Corporate Inn owner bought flowers for the bride-to-be!
Breakfasts were delicious. The complementary breakfast room uses real dishes/silverware and the hotel room has friendly reminders to be earth conscious.
The staff was friendly and genuine, the room very clean, and the furniture comfortable. Underground parking is easily accessed.
It's a quiet hotel close to restaurants, a pharmacy, a grocery store and other stores in a plaza.
It's a great nice place to stay in a good location.

We own a tiny house in Sunnyvale and put up guests at Corporate Inn because we know the considerate staff will make them feel at home. We recently hosted our niece and her friend from Bavaria, who enjoyed a studio suite. Though the hotel is centrally-located, they found it very quiet. They used the clean, efficient guest laundry. Within an easy walk they found a coffee shop, a pharmacy and super market, a phone store where they could buy a sim card, and a variety of restaurants. We took them to our favorite restaurant a short drive away on historic Murphy Avenue. Continuing their California tour they stayed in hotels along the coast and in Las Vegas, but said none matched the Corporate Inn. All our friends like the Corporate Inn so well they don’t want to leave.
