Delightfully old fashioned style. Our room was clean and pleasant and we couldn't ask for a better placement in Los Gatos. We originally hoped to stay closer to our Sunday brunch with friends in Aptos, but things were either booked or over the top price wise. The Garden Inn does in fact have nice plantings around its charming collection of... More

My wife and I attended a wedding near Ben Lomond and wanted to stay overnight in the general area after the reception. During peak season the hotel rates are ridiculously high, but the Garden Inn offered a room rate that was far less than half of the other options we could find. The inn has a nice feel to it,...

We were in Los Gatos for a wedding and one of the hotels that had room blocked was the Garden Inn Hotel. It is only given two stars but it was way better then that. I would give it a 3.5 the rooms were clean, a/c ceiling fan, full kitchen, coffee, internet and quiet. We were just a few short... More

I just spent a month at the Garden Inn hotel and they provided outstanding service. My room came equipped with a kitchen and was fully stocked with Dishes, pots, pans and utensils. Any thing I asked for or needed the staff was quick to supply or assist me in getting what I needed. Lots of great restaurants all within a... More

Comfortable, quiet, well equipped room, great customer and housekeeping service. Lovely location, lovely patios and gardens. We always stay here when we visit our home town. This is a family run hotel with history. A modest hotel with loads of charm and calm, near to everything. They have great coffee all day long, and around the corner are coffee shops... More

The Lamborghini dealership is across the street and Bentley is next door. But it's just a basic old-school American motel. Rooms are comfy, Internet just fine. No breakfast, but “Southern Kitchen” is just across the street, and is just fine for that.

Nice hotel, great rates considering we are right downtown. We are in town for the weekend to see some wineries. Nice grounds, nice staff free parking and close to walking paths. Rooms are average - but what more do you need to do other then sleep when so much is so close at hand?

I almost hate to share this one! But I'm being selfish -- Obviously it has been discovered, because the hotel was fully booked every night, if parking is any indication! I stumbled onto this retro, old-California style hotel while searching for a place to stay for about a week in order to visit and help some dear friends who were... More

Spent a week. Nice, clean, very reasonable rates. Fridge needed service, compressor clicked all night. Staff felt if we changed room the problem would likely reoccur. (????) Staff recommended we unplug fridge at night. Parking is an issue if you return later evening. Take your mini wireless router to plug into their wired service. Hotel has wireless but it is... More
