“Simply Outstanding”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

i stayed at this Ramada, and was very pleased. From the friendly staff to very clean and comfortable room and facility, everything was very impressive. great location too, walking distance to great food places. The front desk staff was so accommodating with any request. She had a smile on her face and was very knowledgeable about the area. The room was extremely clean and spotless. I will definitely stay at this Ramada again.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking about staying there. And the breakfast that is free but served with a smile on the front desk staff is just so refreshing.

I have stayed a couple of times at this little hotel on El Camino Real. The hotel staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to make the guests feel welcome. Special kudos to Dess and Marisol for their customer orientation.

Room Tip: close to Santana Row

Dhes at the front desk was very courteous, helpful and showed outstanding customer orientation by listening to some of our unique needs for someone with a health condition and making sure we were happy with the stay!

Will definitely consider staying here again in the future, as well as highly recommend this hotel to others. The hotel a basic clean room with a lot of good amenities including refrigerator and microwave (important for us) and continental breakfast for the price!!

Clean. Flat screen TV. Great bed. Some wall repair remains unpainted. Peeling paint in shower. Good value but not perfect.

Very excellent and respectful service from front desk receptionists Marisol and Dess. They have made my stay away from home here very welcome and inviting. I've stayed over 80 nights here and had the choice of nearby hotels, but chose Ramada because of location as well. Very easy check in and out process. Would recomend Ramada to anyone looking to stay in this area.

Very nice rooms with modern furniture and comfortable bed. My room was quiet, with windows facing on a back street rather than on the outside corridor. My only criticism is that the wireless was very slow at times, practically impossible to use. At other times it was OK. Breakfast was fine. This was the second time I've stayed at this Ramada Limited, and I would definitely return.

I travel every week and finding a clean and comfortable room at a reasonable price isn't always that easy. Since my first visit I've spent 35 nights here already through March. The rooms are clean, well appointed, easy to work from and quiet. The continental breakfast is good. The best feature is the front desk staff. Des and Marisol go oou tof there way to welcome you or welcome you back, ensure that your room is to your standards and act quickly if anything should need correction or repair. I spend over 200 nights a year on the road and have a choice where I spend my money. Once you find value, it is the staff that makes the difference and because of Des and Marisol's attitude toward customer service, I choose the Ramada Limited - Santa Clara.
