Nice little spot for extended stay. Right near the college and short walk to stores and restaurants.
Tucked away in a nice little neighborhood and the people and staff are friendly.
Short drive to the bay or Santa Cruz Boardwalk.

Stayed: June 2014, traveled with friends

Hotel is a great stay! Rooms are quiet and clean, hotel is centrally located within walking distance to the Santa Clara University area. The hotel staff is very accommodating and professional. Hotel does not have a restaurant or swimming pool, but the staff has hot coffee ready every morning and Bill's cafe is right next door which is probably the best breakfast you'll find anywhere...

I spent one night, because there were no rooms in town. Average motel. Service was good. It's near Santa Clara University and down town San Jose. Looking on positive side, I tried sandwich from Ike's near the hotel and it was good.

Customer service was beyond non existent & the "Owner"/"Manager"/"Everything" as he called himself on the phone was an idiot at best. Called to get a credit card authorization form faxed to me (an easy thing to do that takes less than 5 minutes) to pay for my incidentals ahead of time, and this "gentleman" REFUSED to send it to me because I ordered the room from Hotels.com. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone. Spend your money where it will be appreciated as the Valley Inn as no need to care for its customers.

Room Tip: Go anywhere else.

I have to say that if there were laws about truth in advertising these people would be in jail. On the website they said they have a coffee maker, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, and an on site restaurant. None of these are true. The only coffee maker is in the little tiny reception area and when I checked out at 6:50am there was none. The owner said he would have coffee at 7am. A lot of good that would do as I was leaving.
The room was shabby and dirty. The only somewhat new items were the granite bath counters and tile floor in the tub/commode area. There was a dead bug smashed on the wall above the towel rack in the tub/commode room. Black mold was on the ceiling and the window sill was also black and filthy. The tissue dispenser was blocked by the frig and microwave that sits on the bathroom counter, and it was empty. The rack for hanging clothes is old and rusty None of the furniture matched and was something that would have been left behind by Goodwill. The bed was hard and not very comfortable. Dust and dirt is in every corner and along the baseboards. For the money spent on this place it is not worth it. Stay somewhere else where they tell the truth in advertising the place. Horrible is not enough to describe the place.

This is the place you want to stay!!! Safe quite and conveinyent to the highway, Amtrak, And all my shopping needs. The rooms have shower hot tub combination. Dish T. V. And on the Main metro route. I will stay at Valley Inn,Whenever I'm in San Jose Calif. The price is fair. The management very helpful. This summer my travels took me from Daytona beach Florida to San Jose California and the Valley Inn was the most acomidateing.
