Wild Palms Hotel- Sunnyvale
Stayed here for 2 nights. Good location, easy freeway access. Neighborhood has a good range of restaurants in walking distance; although not the most pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. The look and feel of the hotel can best be described as a Motel 6 with Ikea furnishings. On the surface it looks stylish, lively, and fun but the building/structure is old. No surprise, overall quality of this place is that of a 3 star motel at best so, don't expect more. Here’s the specifics of the good and not so good based on my experience:
Staff is very professional, courteous, and helpful.
Rooms are clean, comfortable bed, chairs, and desk.
Large closets, average sized bathroom with tub and shower.
Common areas are also clean, seem well-maintained.
Good amenities: bathrobe, iron/ironing board, basic toiletries, small refrigerator, flat screen TV.
Swimming pool area has hot tub and comfortable lounge chairs.
Dark rooms due to small windows.
Noisy—rooms have thin walls; you can hear the next room’s TV and plumbing; worse if you’re in a room that’s facing the street or courtyard/pool area (there were people late at night using the hot tub and could hear them partying). The heating/cooling system in the rooms are noisy too.
Painfully slow wi-fi/internet access; you have to pay some ridiculous amount to “upgrade” to a faster speed! This should just be free to guests given the hotel is frequented by tech geeks!
Business Center-- cramped space with one old PC and printer and uncomfortable chairs.
Fitness Center- pathetically small space, 3 old exercise machines.
Pool although nice and clean is short and small.
Free breakfast: you can taste why it's free but coffee is passable.
Hotel is showing its age in spite of the cosmetic makeover.
Bottom line, this is indeed a 3 star motel so, it's a fair deal if you don't pay more than what you would pay for any other 3-star. Above that, you might want to look elsewhere. For me personally, I would stay elsewhere next time I need to be in that area.
