Stayed there for 8 nights. Good experience, no nonsense hotel, fast/reliable wifi. Staff was friendly, room decent and clean. Location is great for accessing Silicon Valley as it is close to 101 freeway.

Great location. Clean rooms. Good customer service experience. The front desk personnel were always friendly and accommodating. The beds were pretty comfortable and the appearance of the room was up to date and clean. The hotel is not a four star hotel, but it was very comparable to a Marriott or Hilton. I prefer staying here because of the location,... More

We stayed here on our recent trip to CA. The room was very clean. We were assigned a room that had a Jacuzzi tub. This was very nice after walking all day in San Francisco.

After a fantastic holiday to stay the last night here at this hotel was an excellent choice: the hospitality and level of service provided by the staff was perfect!: we arrived earlier in the day with an oversized number of luggage, which was absolutely no problem to store. When we arrived back in the evening, all was in our rooms... More

Wonderful stay! Breakfast is great, room is comfy, lobby is nice, library/business center very welcoming. The lobby has lots of tables and chairs, we played cards with friends and it was wonderful. There is a train that comes through, but not heard much inside rooms
