“Very Warm and Welcome feeling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The main reason I rate this Motel 6 above average is because of the staff. They were warm and friendly and made me feel welcome. The room I got was very clean. There are two diners within view. Easy on and off Highway 101. Nice pool! There is plenty of parking and I got a room I could park in front of the door. Word of warning, though. The road construction crew that apparently has a contract in the area and are staying there are exceptionally loud, rude and inconsiderate. To a point I was almost going to track down their boss and let him know about it, and what they said about him personally. But they're everywhere so what can you do. Good motel. Worth the money and I would stay there again.

This one is IMO one of the better motel 6 locations. Staff is always friendly and rooms are clean. It is a motel 6 so not much more to talk about. That is what they are designed for. clean affordable place to stay. Beds are your average motel 6 bed. nothing spectacular but doesn't keep you up at night. Good value. I have stayed at the north location as well and prefer this one.

The least expensive in the San Jose area , that I have found. Staff was friendly and communicated well. It is a motel 6 but its clean and not too much ruckus. (The opposite of Motel 6 Sunnyvale North - I feared for my safety there)

While we were hesitant at the idea of a Motel 6, this location made us a lot more respectful of the brand. The location is great, the staff is exceptionally friendly and the rooms are VERY clean. I would highly recommend this Motel 6 to anyone looking for a clean place to stay the night.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2009

I stayed in this hotel recently on a trip to San Francisco. To save on the outrageous rates within the city, my boyfriend and I stayed in nearby Sunnyvale and commuted in (about a 20 minute drive). As another reviewer mentioned, this hotel is situated just across the street from another Motel 6 (which looked like it might be in better shape). This hotel was the typical Motel 6 experience with that standard musky smell, thin walls (and in our case a disgruntled neighbor), scratchy sheets and a tube TV with a dozen channels. However, it was one of the lowest priced hotels in the area, and it made a good home to a couple of travelers who wanted to put their heads down and their cell phones on chargers for a night (or four) before going back out. They'll try to charge you for Wi Fi, but there is a restaurant in the same complex which offers it for free. The food is awful, but the Wi Fi can generally reach to the front side of the hotel. I believe the nearby Denny's also offered Wi Fi. Overall, not bad for a traveler on a budget.
