“Really Enjoyed my stay”
Reviewed July 17, 2007

I stayed at the Wild Palms on business recently and had a great experience.

From the moment I drove up to the Island Inspired Hotel, I thought that I was at a tropical resort. The staff was very accommodating and the rooms were nice, clean and met the needs of a business traveler.

The breakfast and happy hour were nice bonuses as well. No need to look further for a fun, relaxing "island resort" in the middle of Sunnyvale, California.

I booked this motel the last minute and got a wonderful rate, $89 total on a Saturday. The front desk clerk was very friendly and she helped us find a wonderful pizza place to eat just down the street. She also gave me directions to Cold Stone and Safeway. The room was clean. The motel was clean. And the decor was fresh Mediterranean with lush plants everywhere. The bed was perfect and the pillows were fluffy. The pool, heated perfectly, and jacuzzi were clean. The breakfast was great. Every breakfast carb and drink. I was most impressed by 2 things. The check out is noon which gave us time to swim in the morning. And lemonade was served poolside at 10:30am. I also felt safe within the locked gates. We had fun.

We stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. We didn't much, given the low price and age of the hotel. However, the facilities have been updated and the hotel is quite clean. My wife enjoyed the Aveda toiletries.
The staff are very friendly and made us feel welcome.
If you're looking for the Ritz, this isn't the place. But, if you're for a nice hotel and smiling staff at a great price, we recommend it, and we'll be back.

I would recommend this group of hotels for their front desk staff alone. Having arrived in Silicon Valley without a hotel booking, and driven around for over an hour looking, without success for accommodation, I finally arrived at the Hotel Avante. They were also full, but took the trouble to call around other Wild Palms hotels, finally not only finding me a room, but also a good rate, added to which they gave me exact directions. I found the Sunnyvale front desk staff, similarly up-beat and helpful. The hotel itself is nice, kind of a boutique, good atmosphere, clean nice rooms, kind of funky. All made for a great stay~!

We stayed for one night only before attending the Gwen Stefani Concert at the Shoreline Amphitheater. We definitely would have loved to stay longer!

Everyone working at and for the hotel was very polite, professional and accomodating.

It is a very cute hotel and having the continental breakfast was definitely a plus!

My children also enjoyed the swimming pool before getting ready for the concert.

The location is great if you are going to any events at the Shoreline Amphitheater as it is an easy drive and only a few miles away.

We will defintiely stay there again.

Just got back from a trip to California which included a 2 night stay at the Wild Palms hotel. Everything was great, no problems to mention. The rooms were nice size, clean and the ambiance very cute. Complimentary breakfast consisted of frozen waffles, bagels, muffins, danishes, cold cereal, hard boiled eggs, canned fruit, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, etc. Free wireless internet in the whole place. The pool and hot tub were large with very comfortable lounge chairs and cabanas! Plenty of free parking. Weekend rate was only $75. For the price we paid we were extremely pleased.

This is such a cute hotel. The deco has a tropical palm tree theme. Our room was awesome. We had a queen or full canopy bed. The pillows and bed was so comfortable. The bathroom super clean. Over all we had a great stay and the price was awesome.
