Booked o room on there website as I had a dinner in Los Gatos and knew it would be a late night..
Should of spent the extra 69.00 and stayed at the Toll House.. Room was SMALL I mean very small!!
shower and bathroom were something out of 1940 Parking was a joke as the lot behind the hotel ws full so I had to walk 3 blocks and park.. DO NOT USE YOUR MONEY FOR THIS PLACE.. Motel 6 is WAYYYYYYYYYY BETTER

We've stayed here a couple of times, and it's a cute place. We paid $99 for a large room (their executive suite :-)), and it is worth it. I would have given it five stars, except my shower went cold very quickly, and the manager did not make any attempt to compensate me. I didn't ask for compensation, and just mentioned the shower going cold in a friendly manner, but wasn't offered anything. I thing a good front desk manager would offer something.

When I give it 4*, it is not a 4* resort, but it deserves 4* for location and what you pay, plus the rooms, while on the small side, are very comfortable.

I would stay here again. Also, be sure to pay the extra $20 to get the larger rooms. I have also stayed in the smaller ones and they are a bit too small, with small bathrooms.

Room Tip: Get a suite, pay a bit more

I so enjoyed my short stay. My room was comfortable and clean and it is a perfect location. The desk staff was helpful and the outside garden area smelled like heavenly jasmine!

Room Tip: I had the executive suite so I had a full kitchen.

We had booked a night here so we could visit old friends. We found it to be just right for what we needed. It is right in the middle of Los Gatos, so it was easy to find and very close to everything. It is very much like an inn/motel. In the lobby, there are pictures of Marilyn Monroe and Joe Dimaggio, evidently they spent their honeymoon here. The rooms were just a tad small, but it was very comfortable. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. They also had Internet access. For the price, this was well worth it..

This is a small well-kept motel in downtown Los Gatos. Rooms are equipped with a microwave, small refrigerator, and a coffee maker with ample coffee, and tea. The heating and air conditioner works very well if you take the time to read the instructions in the room. It is a little different unit that I have ever seen. New flat screen TV is a plus. The bathroom is very small but in all works very well. Parking lot is well paved and lit. Great restaurants are close by one being directly across the street. If you are on a budget, this is the place for you. Front desk is very friendly.

All is about location, this hotel is located in city center, and you can walk to all bars and restaurants in Los Gatos and go back on foot. Earlier, when this hotel was run by Tom, it was much better, in terms of carying for clients, Nowadays, when owner changed, all ic changed, and no longer free parties ;-(. Anyway, this hotel is still nice, rooms clean and equipped with latest/greatest sat TV channels, free DSL and Wifi. They also have a very nice coffee in the lobby, for free for hotel guest. And coffee is real (European style). Recommend staying in this hotel

We stayed here for several nights to visit family and found it to be safe, affordable and clean, with a great location downtown. The hotel rooms are similar to duplexes, each with it's own separate outside entrance. There is a very nice gated garden and patio area on the main street, close to shopping, dining, and nightlife. The staff was friendly and helpful, answering any questions we had about things to see and do in Los Gatos. The room contained a king-size bed, a comfortable chair, a TV, (flat-screen, I believe) a small closet, and a bath with tub and shower. The only thing lacking was a pool and the parking behind the building was pretty tight, but it was a very good value compared to other places in Los Gatos. We plan to stay there the next time we visit, and would highly recommend it.
