If you are going to spend much time in your room, try a different place. The room is small and feels it. The dresser and small refrigerator were two feet from the foot of the bed. But the bed was fairly comfortable, immaculately clean, good pillows. Bathroom also very clean, with minimal amenities (just soap and shampoo). No hairdryer. Parking...

Coming from 2500 miles away to drop off my daughter at Santa Clara University. My wife called the day before to confirm our room with 2 queens.

Hotel was clean upon arrival. Didn't like that all non smoking rooms were only on second floor. My grandmother had a hard time going up and down stairs. Parking lot was very small as well. For being a last minute trip and getting a room the day of it was good.

Great motel close to everything. The owners are very receptive to customers needs. I have stayed twice and a reliable safe and clean motel. I would recommend it for business or pleasure. I would even recommend for families close to Bill's Cafe the legendary place for breakfast.

Room + bath, just the basics. If you want a place to lay your head and a reasonable price, this is the place. 2 of the 4 nights I stayed had drama in the parking lot at 2am, lots of yelling. Check hotels across the street as well, Best Western, Santa Clara Inn, etc. just do a google street walk.

Very convenient if you are visiting Santa Clara University. Clean rooms and friendly service. Also, easy access to freeway. Restaurants within walking distance or little drive to downtown San Jose for more choices. Also, it is near Sharks stadium.
