Overall the hotel was very clean, comfortable, good food choices for breakfast, quiet, great location for highways and restaurants in the area. Cedar Creek restaurant was exceptional and it's location just across Highway 5. Staff were very accommodating, pleasant, courteous, just an overall great experience. I would stay there again and highly recommend.

Our family stayed here and between our four groups we each had problems. Your lucky if you get hot water. Electric plugs may not work. The cleaning staff may throw away items you leave them out and they may take a break in your room while cleaning (saw one cleaner sitting on the bed and watching tv). This might explain...

I needed to be at Saddleback College in Mission Veijo and thought I had better stay in SJC so I could have a chance at seeing the swallows. Too bad it wasn't migration time. I always look for BW first when I travel. I know what I'll get and the rates will be decent. This hotel was a really nice...

Need to be in Capistrano briefly and inexpensively - then this is your place. Close to freeway and downtown SJC. Rooms are clean and the Free breakfast makes the stay. Internet speed (free) leaves you wanting. I would not be able to conduct business at this property. I was in town for a Memorial service and wanted to be close...

Very easy access, classic motel like design. Place was busy and I expected noise but was pleasantly surprised. Room are in good shape, very basic but clean. Breakfast was good with hot selections and plenty of space to sit down. If you are not looking for a fancy place, this is good value for money.

I was working for two weeks in the San Juan Capistrano area. Upon check-in I requested a King room instead of the two queen beds that had been assigned on the internet. The young lady quickly helped me and got my room changed to one that would work for me as I would need to be working each evening. The...

I arrived at the motel for a week, the airline I travelled with lost my baggage, the girls at the front desk were very helpful and sent me in the right direction to get some clothes and gave me some amenities 😊 The rooms were clean, beds were ok, pillows were a little uncomfortable, towels were changed everyday, beds were...

I reported the TV problem and the clerk on the phone told "me" how to fix it. When that didn't work, I called back and she told me she would be right with me. I stayed on the phone and when she came back she said "oh I meant that I was on my way over to your room." She...

Beware that the hotel is at a freeway exit and the roadway is under construction. Altho the listing says walking distance to downtown, walking is impossible through the construction zone. Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful.
