Just a normal average "Motel". The second room i slept in, it was better, a basic room with double bed, tv, and bathroom. If you want you can use the swimming pool (but i didn't). The first night I slept on a room that use to be a smoking room, so it was smelly...

Needed a place in San Jose near the airport for one night between two travel days. Got a good rate, but brought me right back to "you get what you pay for". Chose this place because it advertised free airport shuttle. Paid for it in advance to ensure rate. Payment was non-refundable. When I landed at 9:30 pm, and called... More

This place smells of mold and possibly rat poison. The air conditioning makes such a loud noise that I had to turn it off and open the window - not a safe option since anyone can come in through this window from the outside. The door does not have a latch on the inside there is a gap between the... More

I had to book this trip kind of last minute and all of the hotels in downtown San Jose were either sold out, or were charging $400/night. My company uses "Concur" for booking travel and this place showed up as a 2 1/2 star alternative with a total price of $185/night. The bed was clean and I actually slept OK,... More

Read the reviews before and still decided to stay here because the cost is high for chain hotels in the area. Was working at night so sleep in the daytime was kinda tough because the rooms are not very quiet and had one hotel employee whistle and not stop for an hour until I told him to shut up. The...

This is a strange review to write because the place is a well-worn motel. The rooms are small (though with big closets), and not well insulated. You can hear through the walls, and people talking outside your room. The TVs are old CRTs. That said, my room was clean and the bed was fine. Everything worked, though the window in... More

As a native Northern Californian, I kind of found it trendy. It looked like a 1960's hotel. Because it was a 1960's hotel. The television is at least thirty years old. 27 inch box tv. The door is so light, it would be easy to punch a hole in it. The breakfast was eggs and sausage. Extremely minimal. But all... More

Showed up 10.30am on a Thursday. Were spooked by not seeing anyone there. We went againts our instinct and sat at the table. Ordered eggs benedict, omelette and pancakes. It was kind of slow to arrive and the waiter said "madam, we are preparing everything from scratch, as it rarely happens elsewhere unfortunately". He was so right. Best breakfast ever,... More

Made the mistake of not booking a hotel in advance. Apparently Silicon Valley gets busy starting Tuesday night. This was our last choice at midnight. (After spending 4 hrs searching) We were happy to have a bed. Bed was horrible. Bathroom looked clean enough. Carpet was gross, they obviously didn't vacuum, there was change on the floor along with makeup.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our history began when Jack Mariani settled in Santa Clara in 1907. After farming his orchards for many years, he was inspired to pull out five acres of prune trees and create the Inn and Restaurant. Ever since, our guests have experienced lodging and dining of the highest caliber in a relaxing, homelike atmosphere. You're sure to enjoy your stay, because we operate the way Jack Mariani designed it - as a family place! ... more   less
