Nice location, clean room, comfortable bed. Parking is limited, but the management works with you. No elevator but it's only one level up. Plenty of food locations within walking distance and the price is comparable to the area.

I moved over to this hotel from the Motel 6 a couple of blocks away simply because the rooms were bigger and more comfortable. This Econo Lodge has been changed over to a Driftwood Inn so don't be confused when you pull up. The Indian family who runs this hotel are very clean, nice and considerate people who will take...

As you read this review, the owners of the Econo Lodge of Santa Clara are transforming their hotel. Visiting this hotel during this transformation stage left us coming away with real appreciation of the work being done. Within a few weeks, based on the rooms we saw, this motel will be as refurbished as the freshly painted exterior. New and... More

Location is good but service is terrible. There was a guy at the front desk that was attending people like he didn't want to be there at all. The price is high for the service and room they offer. I really had a bad time there.

This lodge is depressing, and the people who run it appears depressing. The rooms were dull and we felt completely unsafe. Location is good. Breakfast was horrible. Some expired baggles. Pls look for better place. I saw lot of fishy people staying there.

15 min from San Jose airport, this motel is quiet and the rooms are large. Bed is very comfy. Rooms a bit beat up but very functional. Checking in after 10 took quite a while as the clerk had to keep going back and forth to the computer. Wouldn't be very fun in the cold or rain. Don't expect anything... More

I don't expect 4 star service where ever I go but a certain standard of basic cleanliness is expected. I do write fair reviews based on both the facility and the service. This hotel was booked for me by an agent so I didn't think twice about staying here and had no preconceived notions. When I got there it was... More
