3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This hotel is the Sundowner Inn on all the maps and they have a flimsy plastic cover over the signs that at night still show the Sundowner Inn through the plastic. The reason to stay here is that Los Altos is expensive and this hotel is cheap. I paid less for this hotel than almost any hotel on a trip from SF to Phoenix. The good news is that the rooms are large, clean, and comfortable albeit a little outdated. The bad news is that they rent a party room on the Mathilda Ave side which has very loud parties regularly. Ask for a room closer to the lobby side - mine was and I slept fine. The hotel lobby is also the worst smelling I've ever been in - thank goodness the rooms are better maintained. The breakfast was fine and the pool was fine. Overall, my experience was better than many of the reviewers but you do get what you pay for. I would recommend this as a budget option. When I looked for other options this seemed to be far cheaper and convenient for Los Altos.

Room Tip: Stay near the lobby and away from the party room on Mathilda Ave

Thank you for your comments. As we have mentioned to many of our guests the sign on Mathilda has been ordered and will be here by the year end. Monument sign on Ross drive will also be installed at the same time. Roof top signs will say Sundowner only. Inn will be removed. We are working to get the city permit and Wyndham corporate approval. I am told we will get this momentarily. Sorry that we have to cover old Sundowner Inn sign with the Days Inn and Suite bubble sign.

I stayed here with friends for 4 nights the weekend of the Bridge School Benefit. The hotel we've stayed at for years had gotten too expensive for what it was so we decided to give this place a try. The double rooms are large and spacious, bathrooms clean and beds very comfortable. Continental breakfast is basic corporate fare - make-your-own waffles, cereal, hard boiled eggs, apples, bananas, toast, bagels. muffins, etc. but there was a rather large foreign travel group staying there so table space was at a premium. One morning I had to eat out by the pool - not really an option in the rain!

The carpeting in the room could stand a bit of cleaning, and the electrical outlets definitely need some work (all of our re-charger plugs fell out of each outlet unless they were supported in some manner) but other than that I found the Days Inn to be a good value for the money. I didn't have the opportunity to use either the heated pool or the sauna, but appreciated the availability of both. I was on the first floor and had no issue with noise and felt safe at all times.

As a side note, there is an EXCELLENT Greek restaurant across the parking lot if you are too tired after a long day of travel to venture out far to eat. Also management should upgrade the computer in the lobby. While serviceable enough, it was really slow!

I stayed here on a Monday night. I had a very hard time sleeping because of all the noise from the nearby roads. I decided to leave a night early because of this issue.

Also breakfast was only served until 9am which I was not told. I spend about 10 minutes just trying to figure out where breakfast was since everyone pointed me in a different direction.

I chose this place due to price and location. It was barely worth what I paid. It seemed clean, but upon looking for an outlet for my phone, I realized it was not - unmentionable wrappers on the floor. The doors open to the outside, and as a single female traveler, it wasn't comfortable on the first floor. Was happy to leave.
