“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2007

A very good value for the price. The room was small and somewhat dark, but the beds were comfortable. The hotel staff was very friendly and willing to make a change from a one-bed room to a two-bed room. Parking lot is small, but there is additional parking in back that can be utilized. TV had many channels with a good picture. It was nice to have a small fridge in the room. I had a connecting room and heard some noise from the neighbors, but not too bad.
The free breakfast each morning was excellent. Plenty of choices, friendly and attentive staff. The fruit tray was especially scrumptious.
The hotel is older, but well run and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, especially if you don't need to spend much time in your room.

We stayed at the Mariani's Inn this past week and found it to be a comfortable stay. When we got there, the manager talked to us and when she found out that we were in the area to check out wedding sites, she upgraded us to a suite. She and her staff were very nice! The "suite" was a converted studio-apartment with a separate room for kitchen/dining area, separate bathroom and walk-in closet. It was very spacious. It felt like living in a real apartment as opposed to a hotel! The place is old but well-maintained. We stayed in the back which was away from the street and hence, quieter. The only complaint we had: their free wireless signal was very very weak and it was hard for me to do work online. They also had free breakfast everyday till 9:30am but unfortunately, we woke up too late for it! But there are other restaurants along El Camino which made it easy to find something to eat. Overall, the hotel is not spectacular but with the great customer service and location, it's worth checking out!

Stayed June 2006

Stayed here in the Spring of 2004. On the up side...great breakfast each morning included in price with superior wait staff to great you at the start of your day. Friendly front desk. New bathrooms, a small fridge in the room, central location and quiet. On the down side...no high speed hook ups or additional jack for lap top, phone on opposite side of small table (the only place to put a lap top), not enough light to conduct business at night, carpet was old, worn and stained, must take stairs to the second floor. Would I stay again...not if I had to conduct any business dealings.
