“Overall it was a pleasant stay”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

The hotel is really more of a motel. The exterior is not very nice and it looks similar to a Motel 6. However, the interior of both the lobby and rooms are very nice and look recently remodeled. I guess it's a "don't judge a book by its cover" type of place. Also, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a good mix of healthy and non healthy foods. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and I would stay there again...especially due to its proximity to Google.

Stayed here with my hubby for a date night and a concert at the shorline. Cab ride was about 4 miles away. The room was a surprise and very comfortable with all amenities we needed. Price was great and so was breakfast! Not much to do around us but only there for a quick overnight.

When I arrived at the hotel it was not what I was expecting and I was not sure that I was at the hotel that I had been reading the reviews about because from the outside it did not look like anything extraordinary but that was where the uncertainty ended. The room was presented perfectly and the bed was very comfortable with al the ammenities you would expect but the real plus with thsi hotel are the people who run it. There service was fantastic and you left with the feeling that they genuinely cared about your stay. I woud definitely stay here again, no question.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Strata in Mountain View (El Camino Real) on business, Very friendly greeting upon arrival and fast and pain free check-in which I welcomed after an 11 hour flight from London and a 1 hour drive from SFO airport. Entrances to all of the rooms are behind a glass walkway accessed by your room key, thus providing an extra level of security.
The room itself was quite spacious, clean and comfortable. There were plenty of power sockets, a place to work, a small kitchen area and a very comfortable bed with plenty of pillows of different ratings (firm or soft). Bathroom was well equipped, clean with a pretty good shower.

A buffet breakfast was served in a small dining room so space was at a premium, but the breakfast options were good, plenty of choice of hot and cold dishes and cereal. Other nice touches were:
* Small gym and outdoor swimming pool
* Free use of bicycles
* Umbrellas in case it rains
* Free shuttle bus service to most nearby offices.
The most notable feature though was the " service with a smile, can do attitude of the staff "

I recently stayed at the Hotel Strata in Mountain View (El Camino Real) on business.

What a lovely surprise! The hardwood-floored rooms were a nice change from the usual carpet, and the bed was wonderfully comfortable. The exterior entrances to the room have been encased behind a glass walkway requiring a room key to enter, providing a nice level of security.

But the best thing about the Hotel Strata is the service (and the complimentary breakfast). Arriving very late one evening from the airport, the front desk clerk Pam greeted me with a smile and handled my check-in with ease, personality and a welcome spirit. She presented me with a goody bag with slippers, eye mask, 2 bottles of water, lotion, toothpaste and razor. She said she usually calls guests to make sure they make it safely to their room and that everything is OK.

But let's get back to breakfast...I've traveled frequently on business & leisure and always thought Embassy Suites had the best hot breakfast around. Hotel Strata beats it. Linda, who needs to win some sort of breakfast hostess award, had createdt an incredible display of several types of eggs, bacon, sausage, apple turnovers, potato/cheese balls, hash browns, veggie samosas, fresh watermelon (I saw the watermelons being brought in), breads, pastries, cereals, teas, juices...I don't think I even saw everything that was available. Linda checked in with me frequently, offering to bring me tastes of different offerings. The apple turnovers were the best. I think I could have sat there all morning and just sampled everything available.

The front desk arranged for complimentary shuttle service to my office. The shuttle driver was fabulous. I felt like a frequent guest of the hotel, even though it was my first visit.

It was a very nice (although brief) visit; I would definitely consider returning in the future.
