Great location, but that's about all. Good old school Italian resturant across the street. Bare bones, bed/shower/towel. Noisey heater/air/thin window/thin sheet/blanket. Has vending machine tho, so why not?

Located right on El Camino real in Santa Clara. A mile from both HW 101 & 280. Close to many restaurants. It’s a small , clean and quiet place. They also serve a nice complimentary light breakfast. With pastries,juices ,coffee & some fresh fruit.

The front desk people were super friendly, but didn't quite have it together as far as passing message between shifts. Our room was on the far end... great because fresh air and a tree from the side window... but next to the ice machine which did not stop from 5AM to 8AM...

Stratford didn't admit the guest, present at their front desk, but charged a No-Show fee! I don't understand that if Stratford had all the credit card data for charging a penalty fee, why wouldn't they let the guest stay and caused such inconvenience and distress at such late

Dear Hadnani I am so sorry that you had such a negative experience for trying to check in on Aug 1, 2018. I know with credit cards being such a sensitive matter these days, the name on the reservation HAS TO MATCH the name on the CREDIT CARD which has to match the ID of the GUEST. Many guest today have used either a company card or their parents or partner cards and if the booking does not match its very had for us to check people in without those mandatory regulated rules. Please give us another try to show you we really do care. Please make us a part of your future travel plans.
