We were visiting from Southern Cal and needed a place at the last minute. The price was great for 4 people at $116. I liked the hardwood floors. They could use more towels in the rooms and definitely more toiletries (more or larger soaps). But like I said, it did the job.

Stayed here for 3 nights while my house was getting termite tented. When I checked in both people in the front office were quite nice and friendly. Check-in was a breeze and took about 3 minutes tops. I was on the 2nd floor facing the parking lot of the neighboring Korean restaurant. There is only stairs so be prepared to... More

Overall a solid experience. The impetus for me writing this review was on my last day. I went to the front desk to check out and asked how to get to the airport, in which the manager informed me of the bus and train. 10 minutes later as I was walking to the bus stop, a white car pulled over...

This hotel was clean, safe and the staff was friendly. There were no bells and whistles and no free wifi, but it was good place for travelling through Santa Clara. The floors were clean, the bed was made, and the door locked.

I am looking for a clean place to shower and sleep. I found it. One thing that struck me odd with the motel room was the 6"x4' near-wood flooring. The IKEA decor was odd as well. I remodeled my home office like this... I feel at home in this motel room. ;-) Seriously, the room and bathroom is clean. The... More

This a Motel6, what more to say? Slightly strange smell, the second morning only cold water from the shower... Enough space in the room, the beds were OK, the rooms were remodeled since my last visit some 10 years ago.

Motel 6 Santa Clara was the only available lodging at the time of my booking. Recently renovated. Rooms nice but you get a lot of workers, sharing room and it can be very loud. Rooms definitely need better sound proofing. Also paid extra for very bad wi fi service. Front office folks nice. At 80/night, your best deal in the... More

Heat wave in the SF bay area. My apt has no a/c and no insulation so it makes for a very hot place. Booked 2 nights here not expecting too much (except a/c). I was greeted to ants on the bed (in the sheets), ants on the floor, and 2 roaches by the garbage can. Stains on the bed sheets... More

We stayed here overnight at the half way point on a long drive. Check in was very easy, and prices are posted on the wall, so there's no overcharging, which I always feel hotels do. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the room. It was completely remodeled art deco style. Very clean, all new, and no more carpet.... More
