Reviewed March 1, 2012

Not sure where the last reviewers stayed but my visit was fine. Room was clean, bed comfortable, staff was helpful and friendly. TV was a newer non hd flatscreen. Walking distance to Starbucks , grocery store and restuarants. Continental breakfast was standard fare. I had a nonsmoking 2 queen room on 3rd floor.

This place is a mess except for the lobby(where the pretty pictures are taken. The room was dirty, the exterior was worse. The hotel deserves no more than 2 stars (and that's generous) To spend over $100.00 to stay here is criminal. I would have been better off at the motel 6! The noise in the hallway, and the scream of the water pipes was awful. The beds had messy covers, which I am unable to call blankets. The t.v. was about 20 years old, and the scratched tagging on the entrance door was just more negligent mess. Don't waste your hard earned $ here. Shame on best western!

Room Tip: might as well stay at motel 6, it's probably better. The place is a mess, except the lobby. I gu...

Get new beddings!!!!!!!!!!!
The blankets are like sandpaper and sheets so thin you can feel the blanket through the sheet. The bed spread is very thin and slides off the bed. Very vet well used. Same with the towels like sandpaper. Honestly how can the management let that go??

The main problem with the Fremont Best Western is noise. We could hear every word of the quiet conversation in the next room. Single pane windows allow traffic sounds to intrude. The room doors shut so loudly that they wake up everyone on the corridor. The cosmetics have been updated, but the basics remain 1970s. If you are hard of hearing or have really good earplugs, this isn't a bad place to stay.

Tried to make reservations this morning directly with hotel. When relay service operator (for the deaf) contacted the front desk clerk, she stated 'she wasn't interested' and hung up!! I couldn't believe her response! I had to have my hearing friend call on my behalf and explain the relay process to her. My friend told her I would be placing another relay cal and to please accept it and make the reservation. She agreed. Another relay call was made and our relay conversation began. I was on the phone from 9:56 to 10:15..and was never able to get reservation completed. She put me on hold...couldn't fine group rates, had side conversations, put me on hold again because another call came in. It became too frustrating to me. I also asked to talk to a manager on site, but no one on site on weekends, I suppose. Being that this hotel certainly serves a large deaf community, someone needs to make sure that staff is trained in this area.

In order to submit my experience with reservations...I had to rate hotel. Other than the service response...I. had no opinion on other ratings.

We travel from Nevada to Fremont, CA twice a season for volleyball and basketball tournaments and always stay at the Garden Court Inn. Excellent value considering we get two queen beds, sitting area (some rooms have a balcony), breakfast, outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, great staff, ample parking, located within walking distance to Denney's, Applebee's, and Olive Garden restaurants. However, I'm afraid these great reviews will encourage the ownership to bump up the rates.

Rooms were clean and good sized. It was a convenient place to stay. Breakfast was decent and included eggs, waffles, pastries, and fruit. The staff was friendly. TV was old fashioned but worked well. I chose this place because it seemed a like good value for the price.
