Free perks and a prime Santa Clara location lure value-minded travelers
The two-star Ramada Limited Santa Clara offers great value to business and leisure travelers on a budget. Free perks such as high-speed Internet access, newspapers, parking and a daily continental breakfast are as appealing as the prime El Camino Real location in Santa Clara near many high-tech company headquarters and Santa Clara University. Easy access to attractions such as the Winchester Mystery House, Great America theme park and the HP Pavilion make it a great choice for Bay Area residents on weekend recreational trips, too.

  • Complimentary continental breakfast
  • Outdoor heated pool open year-round
Rooms:

Modern furnishings with a jewel-toned color scheme adorn the 68 guest rooms.

Premium TV channels, in-room wireless Internet, a weekday copy of USA Today and local calls are all included free of charge.

Features:

A range of complimentary features are offered at this budget-minded property.

Clean but small and noisy

A lot of construction workers were staying here and were extremely noisy which made for a very early 5am wake up because of loud movement, talking and the loud crashing of the ice machine to fill up their coolers. Otherwise....clean but very small but beds comfortable.

Under construction!!

There is no information about the remodeling work at the hotel website or Orbtz website. We were here for a vacation, but really disappointed by the mess and noise of the construction. The WiFi was not stable. We called the front desk, but the front desk guy refused to fix it and kept asking us to use the cable. We explained we were using iPads and cannot use cables. After arguing for 15min, the front desk guy finally got the technical person to reboot the router and fix the problem. In general, not recommended.
