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... seems there are a lot of construction workers staying there, who fill their containers with ice for the day?? The bed was very comfortable and, while the lighting is dark-ish in the room, there are reading lights on each side of the bed. Also a nice sized desk and really good rolling office chair to get some work done. Internet was good.

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 hour at night. Here is the story: I booked a room at Stratford, guest showed up but they wouldn't let him stay, claiming they needed the physical credit card or card image faxed, which I did and after trying for an hour and not succeeding (red card with white font wasn't transmitting), manager on duty refused to register the guest but reassured that there would not be any charges. Then a NO-SHOW penalty fee equal to the cost of the room was charged to my credit card. I tried to resolve the matter with Doreen, the hotel manager and she showed no interest in researching the matter, and repeated their no-show policy (which is not relevant to this case). They had all the credit card information that they needed from online booking plus their extra form that I had faxed to front desk.

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.

I had to cancel a trip to Santa Clara because I could not find another room in Santa Clara or san Francisco....after they just went and cancelled my reservation with an email....supposedly because they had construction in the room or area of the property where my room was......and that was that. Sorry....good bye! Cost me an airfare because I couldn't cancel that at such short notice. Who does that!
