Stopped in here so I could look around Silicon Valley the following day. Went out to look for a bite to eat and found I was in the middle of everything, Jazz fest is on, lots of cool bars!! The room was smoking room, clean tidy and even had a Samsung TV. Free parking as well.

This hotel is good if you are in a tight budget. Very basic in terms of facilities. Rooms are very small, carpets not clean, bathrooms are small and not so clean either. Reciptonist was way to slopy, gave me a room which was already occupied and also the access key for room was punched in for a day even when...

First off if you need a taxi to take you, have the address because Taxis know it as the old Ramada Inn not the new name. Secondly be prepared for disappointment. It may be one of the least expensive spots in the area but is it really even worth the going rate? Our room was not ready when we arrived....

We needed a room close to the train station and airport for a reasonable price which isn't easy in Silcon Valley. We didn't have a car that night and needed a room in a good area with access to restaurants. Hotel used to be a Ramada and our taxi driver from the train station seemed lost and unaware the motel...

This motel room was small, but I chose it because it was walking distance to friends I was visiting. Breakfast is included and the WiFi was very good. Parking was free and at night the parking lot was locked,. It has a small gym on the ground floor.

Hotel is easy to find, quick check in and free parking. The room was clean, pretty spacious with 2 beds, a mini fridge and microwave. Wifi worked fine and the free breakfast was okay but no hot food items, just cereal, bagels, fruit, muffins and waffles/toast. We were visiting to go to a hockey game and the hotel is a...

Checkin was OK, the clerk was very slow, but we made it through. The room was large, with fridge and microwave. Some long black hairs on the shower wall in an otherwise adequate bathroom. The included breakfast was minimal, frozen waffles, bagels, toast, cereals. This is not a place I would recommend if you are able to locate another.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a candid review. The hotel has just recently switched computer systems, which may explain why our front desk agent took a bit longer than usual to get you checked in. We strive for elegance through cleanliness and apologize that your bathroom wasn't completely spotless upon check in. We do offer a...
