“The hotel where you're treated like family”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

My husband and I had stayed here for two weeks and it was a wonderful experience. First of all, the staff from the front desk (especially Em): allways smiling, always ready to help so sometimes guests just like to stop by the lobby and chat a little like friends. Then the room, everything looks new, comfortable and cosy. The housekeeping does a great job too. Breakfast has lots of items to offer, everything is always fresh and tasty. Wifi is fast, you can use a complimentary bike or take a shuttle which makes your staying with this hotel even more convinient. So you always feel like home and really don't want to leave this place.

This hotel really does make the case for owner-run establishments. After staying in several hotels in Mountain View this will be the one I return to next. A warm and personal welcome, a genuine warmth and concern for our well being from the owner/staff - we even got a quick call to our room after 30 mins to check things were OK!

There is a great breakfast 'help youself' selection, and they retain access to some staples throughout the day like yoghurt, cereals, fruit / fruit juice and a few pastries. This means if you arrive in the afternoon, you can have a quick swim in the [small] pool or a workout in the reasonably sized and equipped gym before grabbing a healthy snack. And all included in the room rate.

The breakfast also included a shelf of gluten free items and cereals - nice work!

We were in a Queen Suite, which with 2 kids was awesome - we could shut the bedroom door and watch some TV after they'd gone to bed in the little sitting room. Even though we were right next to El Camino Real, there was little noise [much less than i've had on other Camino hotels].

Room decor was maybe not ultra modern, but was rather nicely done - and there seemed to be large screen TVs everywhere.

Internet was fast - the desk was actually workable as it was a decent size with a proper office chair.

Well done Hotel Strata.

We stayed here over the weekend for an event at the shoreline amphitheater, EM at the front desk was awesome and friendly the room was spotless and the amenities were great. They helped us with all our request and were able to fit us in early even though we did not call ahead of time. We will be making this our place to stay every year when we go back!

My wife and I recently traveled to California for business and then a little R & R. The room was very clean and bed was awesome. It all looked new. We are Disney club members and not to many places outside of Disney property will meet our expectations! These guys ran this place very smooth. A little construction right now but it stopped by 6pm and never started before 8am. We were away for most of the day. We used the pool which was outstanding, warm and spotless! Linda who handle the breakfast area was just as sincere and a pleasure to be greeted by each morning as was the front desk. In fact, she gave us some little cherrie tomatoes during our stay from her fathers garden which were awesome!!! I don't recall the name (Angela?)but she was very helpful with restaurants and recommendations and also spent a few minutes with us during our mornings. Overall, a fantastic hotel that surprises you with cleanliness, courtesy, great rooms and a spirited staff that brings it home!

My husband and I stayed at this property on a recent vacation trip. The location was very good - close to area restaurants. The room was great, nicely furnished with modern updates. Very clean. The most amazing aspect of this hotel are the wonderful staff! Warm, friendly and helpful. Seema, it was an absolute pleasure meeting you and thank you for sharing the story of your wonderful hotel - you have truly begun the start of something unique and amazing. Your sincere concern for the comfort and enjoyment of your guests is a shining example of extraordinary customer service in a world of cookie-cutter hotels. Gladys, thank you for a warm and welcoming greeting for a couple of road-weary travelers. And, thank you for being such a great sport!

Nice business hotel in El-Camino in Mountain view. Well appointed rooms. Good for business travelers. Wide selection of television channels. Polycom provided in rooms which is really handy. Breakfast selection is excellent with good choice for vegetarians. They also have a drop off service for near by office areas.
