This place is a family run business and they go out of their way to assist their customers. My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in August 2016. We enjoyed the room and the quiet of the surrounding area. We spend 2 days exploring San Francisco and had no problem with taking the local Caltrain. There is a... More

The room was single story and was quiet. There was a microwave and fridge as well as coffee maker, a large flat screen tv and lots of toiletries. There was shampoo and toothbrushes should you need them. The room had 2 large armchairs and complimentary water which was appreciated. The decor was neutral and linens clean although past their best.

I chose the motel due to its location as it was close to the CalTrain station and downtown Sunnyvale. The motel is about 10-15 minutes walk from the station and downtown and is placed in a nice neighborhood. The owner was very friendly telling about restaurants and shops in the area. The room itself was very nice with a firm... More

Stayed in this family -owned "tourist court" and was completely satisfied. Interior was completely updated and comfortable. Not luxurious but much better than adequate. Owner was very friendly and responsive to our requests.

What a walk into the past! A very clean retro motel. Very quiet neighborhood and close to restaurants and shopping in downtown Sunnyvale. Also close to grocery store and other eating places....Friendly owners and helpful in locating places in the area.

My mother and I needed a hotel in Sunnyvale for the night and Wittle Motel was the perfect spot for us. The owner was friendly and kind, suggesting restaurants in the area and helping me figure out my iphone. The room was clean and fresh, the beds were firm and comfortable. I would recommend this place to those looking for... More

I always worry about staying in a unknown place for the first time. As he would say I'm the picky one, so as you can see I'm the one to leave the review. This place totally met our needs (except no ice machine) for the 3 days that we stayed there. The owners were very personable and anything extra we... More

I stayed at Wittle Motel for 8 nights in order to help my daughter and son-in-law settle into a house they'd rented. I was looking for something within walking distance of their house, and the Wittle Motel was the closest. Location was great for me. Besides being within easy walking distance of my daughter's house, I was also within easy... More

Initially I was booked at a Comfort Inn that offered free breakfast. I switched because several reviews indicated they had poor Wi-Fi and were noisy. I knew from previous reviews that the Wittle Motel was going to be a downscale experience so my expectations were low. Upon my arrival there was a string barrier completely obstructing the walkway to the... More

For what it is, a cheap motel. In this genre clean is everything, and it's clean. Superb location. Nice throwback to the 40's probably, or early fifties, and not much really changed. The plumbing is excellent, granite counter tops in bathroom and above the fridge must be new, a coffee maker, solid free internet, free bottled water, most of all... More
